Where can you go for
Namibia, Kruger National Park, Etosha, Hluhluwe-Umfolozi? I'll suggest
some great locations, you decide what grabs your spirit. Southern
Africa is filled with so many great safari adventure travel
accept some tour out of a can when you can have a custom tailored
guided safari...and at a great price?
is so much to see in Southern
Africa! We are the best in planning your ideal holiday and to do it in
a way that doesn't waste your money nor your even more precious time.
We offer several Big Five African safari tour suggestions, but look at
these only as a guideline. Do you want the Big Five on an African photo
safari? How about 507 species of birds in one park?
suggestions: Some of the greatest wildlife reserves in the world are
Kruger National Park, Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Reserve, Etosha Reserve in
Namibia, and Chobe and Moremi in Botswana. All of these
destinations are reasonably easy to reach, but, perhaps, Kruger is the
easiest. There are also super
nature and wildlife reserves like Mkuze, Ithala, Tembe Elephant
Reserve, Ndumo, Addo Elephant, Kalahari Gemsbok, and many have the big
five. How about hiking in beautiful mountains: the Drakensbergs?
have to consider how comprehensive of a tour you want. Do you want an
all wildlife safari? There is no place better for wildlife. Do you want
an African safari with a concentration on photography? On birding? On
specific animals such as elephant, rhino, meerkats? Do you want an
extreme adventure such as a balloon ride, white-water rafting on the
Zambezi, or an elephant-back safari?
Things to consider and things we'd like you to share:
1) How long can you be away from home. I need to calculate just how
much time you can spend in Africa. 2) How many people will be in your
group? 3) What regions do you have an interest in seeing?
about something a bit more "far out there?"
Let me take you to the Kalahari.
Now, this is one special place on god's
Green Earth. It takes a bit of getting to, but once
you get to it, it is something quite out of the ordinary. You
ain't gonna find no elephants nor rhinos, but you'll find a legend...a
paradise. I suppose that
you've heard of "The Kalahari Desert." And you've probably
watched at least one episode of "Meerkat Manor." Well, this is the
Technically, the Kalahari is not a desert, but
a semi-desert savannah. In reality, it is a mystical place! A land of
a wonderful state of mind. For you, it will be the experience of a
a journey to the land of the Kalahari black-maned lion, the regal
the diminutive Meerkat; a journey to the land of the Bushman.
The Kalahari is an immense desert
large parts of South Africa, Namibia, Angola, and Botswana. The sky is
the sand iron red. As you travel this magical land, you will become
of the seemingly endless dunes, some just windswept sand others
You'll wonder about the camelthorn trees in the dry river beds, knowing
that they are hundreds of years old. You will be with nature when
the weaver birds around their massive haystack nests. Herds of
and blue wildebeests become as common as the sand. ...and, on occasion,
you will be witness to the incredible speed of the cheetah.
The Kalahari of South Africa is located in the
north west section of the country. Much of the land is called the
Kalahari" and is full of farms, sheep and cattle ranches, and the
wine region in South Africa. North of Upington, in the Northern Cape
you will find the Kalahari of the legends.
The combined park, at over 36,000 sq. kms.
one of the largest in the world. There are no tarred roads, but most
vehicle can easily make the journey (why spend the day in a 4x4 when
can sit back in a BMW?). Most travel is done in the former South
park with routes up the west via the Aoub River route, or via the
River route in the east. There are rest camps with food and petrol at
Rivieren, Nossob, and Mata Mata..
will not see the numbers and varieties of
animals that you will find in Kruger, but you will never feel cheated
experiencing the beauty of the land. You will find wildebeest,
warthog, duiker, springbok, gemsbok, eland, kudu, impala, to name a
And you will find predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena
and spotted), caracal, African wildcat (this cute little kitty
like a house cat, but don't pet it!). You will find the rare wild dog,
bat-eared fox and cape fox, honey badger, suricate, mongoose, and you
find the jackal. More? Over 200 species of birds.
