Botswana

Botswana offers perhaps the finest game experience in all of Africa—considered legendary by safari connoisseurs. The real safari, in the classic sense, still exists in the heart of Botswana. The pristine and well-managed wildlife reserves, along with the intimate nature of the camp sites, promise visitors a highly personalized and active game viewing adventure. The camps, although secluded, are surprisingly sophisticated, attending to all your comforts in a style uniquely African. Incomparable wildlife viewing beckons from Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, home to the big African cats, among other wildlife. Explore the Okavango Delta – the world’s largest inland delta system and the Makgadikgadi salt pans, track lion, follow herds of elephant, and experience Africa as it was meant to be.

 

Your safari will be an intimate experience of the wilderness and wildlife, while being pampered in comfortable East African-style tents and unique lodges. Delicious and innovatively prepared bush cuisine is enjoyed around the campfire and fine wines accompany good companionship under the canopy of southern stars. Experience the thrill of small bush plane transfers between camps – a chance to view game from above!  Discover a land of great journeys, where animals and birds migrate and humans come to watch the spectacle. Explore the bush from the comfort of specially-equipped open safari vehicles with expert guides.

    Visit the most popular places in Kenya where you will experience what safari dreams are made of. Rich in wildlife, breathtaking scenery and captivating culture, Kenya has it all. The comfortable cottages and traditional tented camps, located in prime areas, deliver the authentic experience sought by Kenyan safari enthusiasts in this prolific wildlife haven.

     

    Discover the safari experience of your dreams as you search for a pride of lion on grassy Mara plains, watch the graceful giraffe trim the treetops or a troop of baboons playfully passing the day. Experience the perfect combination of flying and driving to maximize your safari adventures. Explore the rich flora & fauna on an escorted nature walk with a Maasai naturalist. Imagine dining against the backdrop of the Ewaso Nyiro River and the Samburu National Reserve. Delight in this experience, as the wilderness slowly comes alive around you.

     

    For the “Out of Africa” experience—Immortalized by author Karen Blixen—enjoy a safari that captures the romance and adventure of Kenya. Game drives and bush walks in the magnificent Masai Mara Reserve and the misty forests of the Aberdare, face-to-face encounters with giraffes and chimpanzees in protected sanctuaries, and dining with a local family are but a few of the kaleidoscope of experiences sure to create photos – and memories to last forever.

     

    Explore the Masai Mara Reserve on game drives in search of the Big Five, huge herds of plains game and a wealth of birding. Discover the pleasures of bushwalking and getting close to the wildlife in the Aberdare Forest, experience face-time with the giraffes at Nairobi’s Giraffe Centre, or enjoy Kenya’s warm hospitality as dinner guests of a local family. A safari in Kenya brings you to the Africa of your imagination, the romantic era of Denys Finch-Hatton, where the elements of surprise are still vividly alive. A mobile safari allows visitors to flow with the movement of the wildlife; nights are spent in areas as close as possible to the herds of game.

     

    The ever-present big cats roar through the predawn and the morning may find your campsite filled with quietly grazing elephant. In addition to the mobile safari, a two night stay is included at an exclusive private homestead offering a wide variety of activities. On safari, listen and watch carefully as your Kenyan guide takes you into the bush for an intimate encounter with the unique flora and fauna of the area. The knowledge, passion and efficiency of the game ranger are key elements of a truly exceptional safari.

  • Malawi

    Two of the great attractions of Malawi’s national parks and wildlife reserves are their completely unspoiled wilderness and the absence of mass tourism. You really do feel you’re looking at a scene that David Livingstone would recognize. There’s a real touch of the Garden of Eden about them; however, you will find the customary 4×4 vehicle for your game drives and you can really get to know the country and its wildlife while on a walking safari. Other options include boat safaris along the Shire river—a wonderful way to see the animals close-up as they seem unfazed by people in a boat. Malawi’s nine national parks and wildlife reserves cover a great variety of landscape and vegetation types, and include areas of genuine unspoiled wilderness.

     

    The Big Five can be seen in Malawi as well as a splendid range of antelope and the smaller cats such as caracal and serval. Hippos are to be found in large numbers, so much so that they are almost symbolic of Malawi’s wildlife. Visitors are relatively few in number, giving everyone the opportunity to experience all types of safari: in a 4×4, by boat, maybe even on horseback or on foot, in peaceful privacy. This would be a great destination for someone who has been to Africa before, and is looking for something a little bit different.

     

    Malawi is truly an ornithologist’s paradise. Few countries in the whole of Africa can rival Malawi’s range of bird species coupled with the relative ease of birdwatching. Around 650 species have been identified with over ten percent not being seen in other parts of southern Africa. The variety of fish, over 600 species, to be seen in the Lake Malawi National Park is unequalled anywhere else in the world.

    Mozambique

    The Niassa Wildlife Reserve lies in the northern wild of Mozambique and is most often referred to as “one of Africa’s last wild places.” This great park is almost twice the size of Kruger National Park in South Africa and is one of the largest conservation areas on the African continent.

     

    Two of the most striking features of the Niassa Reserve are the Rovuma and Lugenda rivers – crocodile and hippo-filled waterways that flow throughout the reserve. This area is also home to the spectacular granite inselbergs that rise imperiously from the surrounding bush. The highest of these, the Mecula and Jao mountains, are almost one vertical kilometer from top to bottom.

     

    The reserve itself contains by far the largest concentration of wildlife in all of Mozambique. This place has an incredibly pristine feel to it, considering the fact that it remained untouched until the end of Mozambique’s civil war in the early 1990s. Since then, its protected status has seen increasing wildlife numbers, with rising populations of lion, spotted hyaena, leopard, buffalo and elephants known for their exceptionally large tusks. This natural wealth, combined with the magnificent scenery and its sheer size makes the Niassa Reserve one of Africa’s last great wildernesses.

  • &Beyond Benguerra Island
  • Namibia

    Mighty elephants, comical meerkats, bounding oryx, endangered rhinos and endemic dolphins are among the eclectic wildlife you’ll discover on this winged adventure to the remote corners of Namibia. Experience Big Five game viewing on the immense salt pans and springs throughout Etosha National Park. Known as the place of dry water, Etosha is one of the greatest and most rarely enjoyed wildlife experiences remaining in Africa. This vast region is comparable to the size of New York state and covers 8,000 square miles. The pan dried up thousands of years ago when the river chose a new course, but the region provides a stunning vision of life and beauty to those lucky enough to experience it.

    This safari captures the very best of East Africa. You will explore the rugged landscape of Tarangire National Park, a unique safari backdrop with rolling grasslands, vibrant swamps and forests of enigmatic baobab trees, which according to legend were planted ‘upside down’ for growing too tall and proud. Descend into the Ngorongoro Crater and roam the great plains of the Serengeti in search of the migratory herds of zebra and wildebeest and their territorial predators: lion, leopard and cheetah. Navigate the wilds of Tanzania, arguably one of Africa’s best-kept secrets, whose national parks and conservation areas cover an area in excess of 76,200 square miles.

     

    Get ready for an extraordinary journey and multicultural experience on this off-the-beaten path safari through Tanzania’s prolific game parks. Seek out the Big Five with expert rangers on game drives within Tarangire, the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Parks; hike near the Empakai Crater; and visit  Olduvai Gorge, “the cradle of mankind.” Along the way, you’ll interact with the local Maasai people, mingle with villagers at the local markets and join the nomadic Wahadzabe hunters as they search for food. 

     

    Enjoy a combination of ideally-situated permanent and tented camps and small lodges. The word ‘Safari’ is Swahili for journey and conjures up images of exploration and adventure. A luxury mobile tented safari is all about freedom and choice — how you want to spend your days and where. While visiting pristine northern Tanzania, you will sleep under the canvas in lavish mobile tented camps and overnight in classic lodges too, with evenings around a crackling campfire. The large mobile tents provide a sense of space and privacy and, upon arrival, your butler greets you with a fresh cool towel and a long cold drink, harkening back to the vintage safaris of yesteryear. Days are spent with expert naturalists who share their passion for the wilderness and the local tribes who share that inheritance. Game viewing is undertaken on foot and in specially equipped safari vehicles…giving you plenty of opportunities to capture that "photo of a lifetime."

Explore South Luangwa National Park, where walking safaris were pioneered, and Lower Zambezi National Park, a massive wildlife sanctuary adjacent to Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools Reserve.

     

    Relish the classic Roosevelt safari experience as you walk with your armed guide out into the pristine bush of the South Luangwa National Park. Follow in the footsteps of missionary explorer Dr. David Livingstone as you boat, walk and join guided game drives to observe the plentiful wildlife along the Zambezi River. Cap your safari at Victoria Falls, so aptly described by Livingstone: “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”

     

    Continue to your tented camp in the Kalahari region, the desert with the greatest species diversity in the world!  Seek out the rare brown hyena and visit the fascinating meerkats and Livingstone’s campsite at the famous Chapman’s Baobab.  Your journey concludes with a relaxing stay on the Zambezi River in Zambia.  Discover the spectacular sight and thunderous sound of the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the world’s seven natural wonders.

    Mana Pools National Park lies at the center of the Zambezi Valley, where the Zambezi River winds its way to the Mozambican border. “Mana”, meaning “four” in Shona, is named for the four main pools on this stretch of the Zambezi River – Main, Chine, Long and Chisambuk. These pools were once part of channels whose flow has long since ceased, but they are full of water year-round and thus quite attractive to the game in the region. Wildlife viewing is plentiful with large concentrations of buffalo, hippo and elephant found along the river. Birdlife is also plentiful with numerous local species including collared palm-thrush, racket-tailed roller, purple-banded sunbird and black-throated wattle-eyes.
