  • On Safari in the Kalahari

    At the core of the vast Kalahari Desert, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is one of the largest protected areas on the continent. Amidst its sweeping vistas of acacia savannah and scrub-covered dunes, a fascinating spectrum of plants and animals have successfully adapted to living in these harsh conditions. Impressive herds of springbok, wildebeest and gemsbok are constantly foraging for food as predators stalk their next meal. These carnivores encompass small mammals like the Cape fox and honey badger as well as hyena, cheetah and the magnificent black-maned Kalahari lion! In addition to today’s game drives and nature walk, spending time with San Bushmen offers insight into their unique culture. Meals B+L+D

  • Game Viewing by Land… and Water

    With lifelong skill, your safari guide will use his Ngashi, a long wooden pole, to steer and propel your Mokoro canoe through the narrow channels of the Okavango Delta. Drifting in near complete silence puts you at one with the environment, making it all the easier to spot the animals that come to the river to quench their thirst. Tsessebe, red lechwe, impala and zebra often graze at water’s edge. Our private concessions are also famed for their birding opportunities, with hundreds of resident species like Wattled Crane, Pel’s Fishing Owl and Rosy-Throated Longclaw. Seasonal fishing and thrilling night game drives will enhance your safari adventures.  Meals B+L+D
  • Private Linyanti Preserve

The Linyanti expanse is also a favored hunting ground for predators including lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah and African wild dog. Upon touching down at the airstrip, you’ll be met and escorted to your choice of luxury safari camp: Kings Pool or Savuti.  Settle in to your luxury tented room and join our sharp-eyed guide for another heart-pounding safari expedition.  Meals B+L+D
     
  • By Land + Water at Chobe

    The sheer volume of animals that roam across the greater Chobe eco-system and our private 300,000 acre reserve make this one of the best places in Africa to encounter a wide variety of herbivores and predators. That is exactly what you’ll do as you set out with our expert safari guides on game-viewing drives and expeditions on the Linyanti River or Savute Channel. In between these exciting adventures, you can take a refreshing dip in the pool or relax on the verandah as you keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife drawn to the nearby watercourses.

The site of the camp is about 17 kilometres 'downstream' from the Zibadianja Lagoon - the source of the Channel. The Channel stopped flowing between 1980 and 2008; during this time it was an unusual and productive ribbon of grassland that served as a corridor and feeding ground in the surrounding woodland for a wide variety of herbivores.

Each tent is raised off the ground on platforms and has its own bathroom with a shower, hand basin and flush toilet.
