Garden Route & Great Karoo Mossel Bay, Wilderness, Knysna, Nature’s Valley & Swartberg Pass 10 Day trip : 5 to 14 October 2022 As one…
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 one of the great treasure-houses of the botanical world, haven to more than 3000 different floral species. Many of these, for a few weeks in springtime, burst into riotous life, clothing the countryside in a spectacular mantle of orange, yellow and white blooms. Namaqualand also sustains a wide variety of perennials: geophytes, dwarf shrubs and a huge number of succulents. This is the best time of the year for birding , as many of the birds are opportunists which move into the area and breed after winter rain.
This adventure takes us to several exciting destinations and is much, much more than a pure birding trip. We visit the two iconic Eastern Cape destinations of The Baviaanskloof and Addo Elephant National Park.
We visit the scenic mountain wonderland of the Drakensberg which takes its name from the massive ramparts of rock rising above the camp. We view montane birdlife in idyllic surroundings and complete comfort, including the magestic Bearded Vulture and other raptors at close quarters.
