Okavango Delta, Botswana
The Okavango Delta is an astonishing wildlife mecca. Where the river meets the sands of the Kalahari, a vast green oasis sprawls, drawing a profusion of game. Explore the maze of canals, lagoons and marshes by mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe. During the wet season, floodplains fill and animals congregate on the islands, offering exceptional viewing opportunities. The northern Okavango has deep water year-round, while the southern section provides exhilarating game drives, with a chance to see all the predators. Our camps in the heart of the delta offer a host of water-based and game-drive activities.

Chobe / Savuti / Linyanti, Botswana
The plains and rivers of the Chobe/Savuti/Linyanti region offer some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife encounters. Botswana has enhanced conservation by encouraging sustainable small-scale tourism and remote private reserves, and the evidence of its success surrounds us. Northern Botswana has Africa’s largest elephant herds, some 70,000 animals. Predators abound, including lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena. Plains game includes red lechwe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, sable, roan, eland, kudu, buffalo and giraffe. The wetlands are home to myriad water birds. Our exclusive camps put us in the middle of the African wild at its most vibrant.

Kalahari Desert, Botswana
The Kalahari is one of the most austere places on earth. Millions of years old, its arid reaches composed the largest desert in the world. Vast sodawhite salt pans divulge the existence of what was once a huge inland sea. The annual rains bring a burst of life through desiccated cracks, drawing hungry game. This inhospitable landscape is home to a permanent array of adapted species, while others migrate to the seasonal springs during the rainy season. Our camps provide an oasis of luxury in the genuine back-of-beyond. Experience the unexpected magic of one of the world’s last great wildernesses.

Kafue National Park, Zambia
Kafue is one of the largest national parks in Africa. It encompasses over 13,000 square miles, an area roughly the size of Wales. It is famous for its abundant and diverse birdlife – over 500 species have been recorded, including Zambia’s only endemic one, Chaplin’s barbet. The diversity of mammals is also astounding – more than 150 species reside here. Leopards, cheetahs and large prides of lions are the primary predators, although the park is home to many smaller carnivores, including sidestriped jackals, civets, genets and mongooses. The park is also home to elephant, buffalo, sable, roan antelope, spotted hyena, puku, wild dog and red lechwe.

Etosha National Park, Namibia
Covering over 8,000 square miles, Etosha National Park encompasses a massive saltpan nearly 80 miles long which was once a vast lake fed by the Kuene River. The park hosts several rare or endangered species, namely the black rhinoceros, black-faced impala roan, Hartmann's mountain zebra and the diminutive Damara dik-dik. The most commonly seen species are Burchell's or plains zebra, springbok, gemsbok and elephant. Kudu, blue wildebeest and giraffe are also fairly common, while the hartebeest, eland and steenbok are less frequently see. Carnivores include lions, cheetahs, leopards, spotted and brown hyena, and black-backed jackal.

Namib-Naukluft National Park / Sossusvlei, Namibia
The Namib-Naukluft National Park in western-central Namibia is one of the largest national parks in the world, covering nearly 9,000 square miles of desert and semi-desert. It is here, in the heart of the Namib, where the highest dunes of the desert are encountered. A remarkable facet of the Namib is the way in which fauna species have adapted to life among the dunes. The sidewinder-adder, a reptile seldom seen, the nocturnal gecko with unusual webbed feet, and the "dancing white lady," a fascinating spider living in burrowed sand tunnels, are just some of the intriguing and mysterious animals that may be encountered.

Skeleton Coast Park, Namibia
The Skeleton Coast is prized as a place of beauty, tranquility and solitude. Situated in the northwest of Namibia, this part of the Namid Desert is one of Africa's most intriguing and pristine wilderness areas. Its attraction lies in the color, changing moods and untouched profile of its landscape, the diversity of its desert-adapted flora and fauna, and the variety of its geological features. The park is home to the rare adapted desert elephant, as well as jackals, brown hyenas, seals, giraffe, black rhino, springbok, gemsbok, and a variety of sea birds.

Damaraland, Namibia
The arid northwest area of Namibia encompasses Damaraland and Kaokoland which, until recently, was a remote primeval region of undeveloped landscapes and abundant wildlife, where people lived in a way unchanged for centuries. Stretching for about 375 miles from north to south, the untamed mountain scenery and uniquely adapted animal life have something to offer all visitors. The area is a wildlife paradise, home to the endangered rhino and desert elephant, both uniquely adapted to this harsh land.

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Hwange National Park, covering over 5600 square miles of desert sand to sparse woodland, is situated near the world famous Victoria falls and is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe. The seventy year old park, which was once the prized hunting grounds of Zulu kings, now boasts over 100 species of mammals. Vast herds of elephant as well as buffalo, zebra, gemsbok, brown hyena, giraffe and 400 species of bird including 50 raptors call Hwange home. The area also is thought to have the largest surviving population of African wild dogs in Africa today.

Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe
Mana Pools National Park, situated on the southern bank of the Lower Zambezi River, is one of Zimbabwe’s famed UNESCO World Heritage sites. One of the best areas to explore on foot or by canoe, the landscape of the park includes islands, channels and sandbanks, dense forests of baobabs and acacia trees, as well as the rugged Zambezi escarpment. Herds of elephant, buffalo, kudu, zebra, and other plains game are drawn to the life-giving waters of the Zambezi which are also a haven for crocodiles, hippos and even black rhino. With the wealth of game in the area, predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard can also often be seen.
