When our guests come to Africa, they are not looking at the thread count of the sheets, they are coming to Africa to experience everything that Africa has to offer and so that is why first and foremost we look at camps that focus on guiding and safari experiences. We use small independently owned and run camps that we know offer our guests the best safari experiences whilst staying with them. These include things like bush breakfasts, sundowners in remote areas or sleep-outs under the stars.
Some of our favorite experiences are walking safaris as they allow guests the rare opportunity to (safely) get onto the same level as the wildlife and get to see and experience things that are missed while on a game drive vehicle. Most safari camps and lodges will offer a walking safari as one of the daily activities, which we highly recommend for first time safari goers or guests that are little nervous. For the more adventurous, we offer multi-day walking safaris between camps. Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe are renowned as some of the best walking safari destinations in Africa. A multi-day walking safari often includes a sleep-out under the stars. This is often the case in the remote Selous, Ruaha and Katavi National Parks in Tanzania.
South Africa and Botswana offer slightly more comfortable sleep-outs on raised platforms away from the wildlife, but still under a blanket of stars. Sleeping out under the stars on the Makgadikgadi Pans is something that everyone needs to experience and is completely unique to Botswana. With no light pollution the stars are so bright that they cast a shadow on the saltpans.
A safari to Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, The Congo and/or Madagascar offers some of the best primate safaris in Africa. Whether tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda and/or Rwanda or viewing lowland gorillas in the forests of the Congo is an experience you will never forget. Tanzania and Uganda both offer some incredible sightings of habituated chimpanzees which are more active and exciting to track and follow as they go about their daily routines. Madagascar’s unique lemurs are inquisitive, charismatic and exciting to track.
Exploring Africa by helicopter allows for some exciting opportunities to experience some of the most remote, unreachable areas of the continent. Having the ability to land on volcanic craters, flamingo filled lakes, islands in the Okavango Delta or to visit remote tribes in Namibia’s Koakaland, this is a real must for those looking to get as far off the beaten track as possible.
Africa is blessed with incredible cultures, some of which have been lost forever. There are however some tribes that have maintained a traditional way of life and we offer the unique opportunity to meet and learn more about their traditional ways of life. This is in no way a show put on for tourists, but is an authentic cultural experience to learn more about their way of life.
Bringing your family to Africa could seem quite daunting, but this could not be further from the reality that Africa is perfect for a family safari. African people are very family focused (it is part of their culture) and so are perfect with kids. Aside from this, experiencing a family safari together away from the distractions of everyday life is something that we find brings families closer together. We work with several camps through Africa that are family focused in terms of the sleeping arrangements, but also the overall safari experience on offer.
With miles of unspoiled beaches and turquoise waters teeming with marine life, Africa is the perfect honeymoon destination. Combining the adventure of a safari with some of the world’s most pristine beaches is the perfect recipe for that once in a lifetime honeymoon experience.
