Hello Trail Blazers,
It is with much excitement that we bring this journey to you – a true conservation safari that will lead you through some of the least-trodden parts of Africa. This is a safari that tries to look into the heart and soul of wild Mozambique – a country that is figuratively just a stone’s throw away from well-known South Africa, but one that is still shrouded in mystery – a land where wilderness & wildlife have recently been rising from the ashes like so many phoenixes.
After a very rough year that has been dominated by a virus, perhaps it will do us good to focus on uplifting stories for a change. Both Gorongosa and Niassa belong to the category of hopeful stories – of parks and game reserves that have been brought back from the brink of annihilation through the courage, foresight and commitment of a community of dedicated people, who have banded together to preserve and sustain some of the most important eco- systems and conservation corridors of Africa. This safari will be the first time that I too set foot on Mozambican soil (unless you count the 3 steps I sneakily took across an opening in a rusty old fence along the Mozambique-Gonarezhou border!)
I look forward to having you join me on this exciting trip -we are so fortunate to do this!
This discovery of Príncipe tours uncovers the wonders of the island and delves into the gripping history. Visit the historic roças and cacao plantations, explore the other-wordly coastline by boat, venture deep into the rainforest and discover the unique flora and fauna, and spend time with the local people to gain true insight into life on this one-of-a-kind island destination.
Tchad has true otherworldly beauty: seas of orange-yellow sand, multi-coloured oases, and surreal rock formations. After all, most of the country is a part of the Sahara Desert. But Tchad also has one of the world's largest single herd of elephants, many lions, some surprising rhino and cheetah, 70% of the world’s rare Kordofan giraffe and over 10,000 Central African savanna buffalo, which range in colour from jet-black to magenta.
This is wild adventuring, including driving across seas of sand, seeing rock paintings that are 1000s of years old, and coming face to face with elephants whose recovery is one of the most heartwarming of wildlife conservation stories in the modern era.
But that's not all. Meet dromedaries. See the Toubou. Visit a guelta. What are these? Read on. And last but not least - in these times, if you are looking for a holiday with an emphasis on isolation, then look no further than Tchad. Truly.
Tassili n'Ajjer is a vast plateau in south-east Algeria. It covers an area of 72,000 sq. km. with an exceptional density of the paintings and engravings, as well as the presence of many prehistoric vestiges. From Roman ruins to stunning dunes, from Touareg encounters to experiencing giraffes and hippos in the desert, this trip to the edge of Africa is not to be missed!
Instead of dashing in and out of this vast reserve after spending a scant 2-3 days here, we will circumnavigate the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, passing by pans and valleys with names like Piper’s Pan, Sunday Pan, Passarge Valley, hoping to see the famous black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetah, vast herds of oryx and other desert-adapted species like springboks, brown hyena, porcupine, red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, and all manner of birds and reptiles.
Do join us as we embark on an intimate journey in Kenya and follow the "re-wilding" of elephants (orphaned by human-wildlife conflict, poaching and natural disasters) from their baby-years at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust nursery in Nairobi, to their adolescent years and the stockades of Tsavo East.
A safari like no other — from flying over Gambella National Park to travelling to the remotest parts of Ethiopia's Omo Valley. This is Undiscovered Country!
The spectacle of a lifetime is back in 2021: The Great Migration! Travel to East Africa with Sangeeta and Smita on a safari like no other. Thundering hoofs of millions of wildebeest, the deep crevices of the Mara river, Nile crocodiles, and a legion of predators! The perfect escape from Covid with your excellent companions: Sangeeta & Smita!
Explore wilderness watching wildlife at close range is endlessly fascinating and the quintessence of every African safari or Kenya Holiday. Conservancy safari is unlike anywhere else with off-road driving and limits on vehicles.
This safari offers a marvelous opportunity to try something different while on an African safari adventure or Kenya holiday. Visit the last remaining Northern White Rhinos on the planet, canoe on the waterhole in front of camp, walk and wild camp in the in the Lolldaigas hills, jump from the waterfall in the Ngare Ndare, horse ride with rhino or cycle across the Ol Pejeta Plains.
Exploring the bush on foot is one the most exhilarating African safari experiences.
A Wild Camping Trip brings you closer to nature and ideally complements your stay in Masai Mara, Kenya.
A trip in splendid isolation to the interiors of Chad, including the Ennedi Cultural Reserve (a UNESCO World Heritage site protected by African Parks), home to the one and only picture-book Sahara Desert & its incredible rock formations; next is Ouadi-Rimé Ouadi-Achim Game Reserve in Central Tchad---base of the Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF) for the reintroduction of some of the rarest species of desert wildlife on earth! And finally, Zakouma National Park!
• Catch a glimpse of the Ethiopian Wolf – one of Earth’s rarest canid species
• Chance to observe the Gelada Baboon, Walia Ibex and Swayne’s Hartebeest (all on the endangered species list)
• Meet the Hyena Man and marvel at the remarkable relationship between man and beast
• Beautiful Langano Lake – home to numerous wild mammals and over 300 species of birds
• Bamboo forests with their shy old-man inhabitants – the Bale Mountain Vervets
• Sanetti Plateau – with its unique wildlife – including red wolves and Colobus monkeys
Make your next great escape Namibia! Namibia is a huge country (even by African standards) – to give you an idea it is twice the size of California, four times the size of the United Kingdom and has a population of a mere two million people – giving it one of the lowest population densities in the world. Just the perfect place for social distancing!
Chad has true otherworldly beauty: seas of orange-yellow sand, multi-coloured oases, and surreal rock formations. After all, most of the country is a part of the Sahara Desert. But Chad also has one of the world's largest single herd of elephants, about 130 lions, and over 10,000 Central African savanna buffalo, which range in colour from jet-black to orange.
KTP is truly wild: surreal semi-desert wilderness; red sand dunes; dry rivers that are said to flow once in a hundred years; and starry skies without light pollution. Kgalagadi means 'place of thirst'. It is a part of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa. Much of it consists of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP), Africa's first Peace Park.
Gabon is still an enigma. A wild place of pristine old-growth rainforests where there are almost no human settlements, and where wild animals live protected within the thick foliage nestled between the many rivers that traverse this west African country. This is a trip for adventurers, who don’t expect smooth sailing every day. This is a trip for those who want to see something new, something different. It is a place for the intrepid Africa enthusiast who will be thrilled by the sight of a red river hog in a wallow, or a wary lowland gorilla in a forest clearing. On this trip, timed to coincide with the gathering of humpback whales off the shores of Gabon, and the troops of the fabulously colorful Gabon mandrill, we will enjoy a truly epic African adventure, moving by train, boat, and plane through the heart of Africa.
The LUANGWA VALLEY, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 400 species of birds.
This Mobile Walking Safaris have long been known as the best wilderness experience of the South Luangwa. After a night at Nkwali, the party drives to the north of the park where they will walk for five days covering approximately 10km a day, following the Mupamadzi River. This clear river is a major tributary of the Luangwa.
