This mouthwatering tour takes us to three of the finest national parks in Africa, home to an incredible diversity of wildlife and birds.
We visit Chobe National Park in Botswana and Hwange and Matobos National Parks in Zimbabwe.
This spectacular tour is centred on two great Namibian rivers, the Kunene and the Kavango and is focussed on Namibia’s northern border with Angola.. Our routing offers the prospect of encountering some very special birds, including several near endemic species.
Undoubtedly our flagship Zimbabwean tour, taking in several iconic destinations in the spectacularly beautiful eastern Highlands.
Although there are no endemic birds in Zimbabwe, the country boasts more than 50 species that do not occur in South Africa.
Many of these “specials” can be found in the focus area of our trip as we have carefully selected those destinations that will afford us the best chance of seeing the targeted species.
Our travels take us to two of Zimbabwe’s lesser-known natural jewels, situated northeast of the capital city.
Mavuradonha Wilderness is one of Zimbabwe’s true wildernesses – seldom visited, even by the locals.
Umfurudzi Park has rich biodiversity and supports a large spectrum of wildlife, including several special bird species.
This truly memorable tour offers superb birding and boasts three of the most sought-after Mozambique “specials” ie Olive-headed Weaver, Crab Plover and the recently re-discovered Green Tinkerbird.
We explore the wildlife and birding delights of an area that is crossed by four major rivers, the Zambezi with its Chobe tributary in the east, the Kwando, in the central Caprivi strip and the Kavango, further to the west.
The Namib Desert has a fascinating array of plant, animal and bird species, surviving in sand dunes of all shapes and sizes and vast gravel plains stretching for as far as the eye can see.The central Namib, an area confined by the Atlantic Ocean in the west and the escarpment to the east, sandwiched between the Kuiseb River in the south and Huab River in the north, is the area that we will be visiting.
No words can adequately describe the sheer magic of Mana Pools. Glorious sunrises and sunsets, breathtaking scenery, amazing mammals and birds, and an unparalled serenity. This Park offers something that some of the others lack, an authentic wilderness experience.
Stunning sunsets are a distinctive feature of Kariba, as are the bleached skeletal trunks and bare branches of dead trees that were drowned by the flooding of the lake all those years ago.
We visit the central Botswana part of the Kalahari Basin-the world’s largest continuous stretch of sand.The Kalahari is regarded as one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas and is probably one of the largest relatively undisturbed arid savannas in Africa.
