Botswana

Botswana is one of our favourite destinations as we have lived and breathed there for nearly 15 years. 

It is one of the best places for concentrated game viewing far away from the crowds and is renowned for its eye-wateringly expensive and exclusive lodges due to its policy of high end, low volume tourism.

However, in recent years many new, more mid-priced options have emerged in the spectacular game-rich areas of the Okavango, Moremi, Chobe and the Central Kalahari.

Malawi

Malawi is a landlocked Africa country with a huge variety of scenery. Between Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique; Malawi is known as the ‘warm heart of Africa’ because of its incredibly friendly people. It is less known than other safari destinations and is very unassuming, with very few luxury lodges, just authentic African experiences amongst beautiful scenery.

Most famous for Lake Malawi, the countries Wildlife Parks have been the focus of conservations efforts of the African Parks Organisation and several parks now offer great game viewing opportunities.

Namibia

We feel Namibia has arguably the most amazing and dramatic scenery of the region. On our last trip to Kaokoland, we had to stop ourselves from taking too many photos of the landscapes – it’s just breathtaking!! 

Namibia offers vast contrasts, from the coastal towns of Swakopmund and Luderitz to the awe-inspiring sand dunes of Sossusvlei, the eery and remote Skeleton coast,  the rocky scenery of Damaraland and the Himba tribes found in the Kaokaveld region. Not to forget the Fish river Canyon – the largest in the world after the Grand Canyon and much quieter! It is a life-changing holiday destination.

Zambia

Zambia is a fantastic safari destination and fast becoming one of our favourites – with its quirky lodges and authentic bush camps nothing is ‘run of the mill’. Consequently, it can provide a safari of a lifetime. Big game is plentiful in areas like South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi National Parks.

Laura visited the bat migration in Kasanka National Park and its ranks as one of her greatest safari experiences. The variety of scenery is fantastic and game viewing is impressive and very affordable.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is our home, so are naturally biased to think it is the best safari country– but our patriotism is infectious and you too will fall in love with Zimbabwe once you have visited. People return time and time again!

There is such a variety of scenery, game viewing, history and culture with such friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic people. Consequently, it is a great country to explore and we encouraging people to self-drive or take a guided tour to really get to know the country.

Beach Extensions

Safaris are fantastic, but they may also be tiring. A typical day consists of an early morning game drive, breakfast, rest time, and then another 4-hour game drive in the late afternoon. You may be ready for a change of pace after a week or two on safari…

Many prefer beach resorts where they may enjoy golden sand, snorkelling, and a slower pace of life. Although Cape Town is not a ‘traditional’ beach destination, the weather, diversity of activities, and great restaurants provide for a relaxing finale to a trip.
