Let’s talk about a place that'll take your breath away! A wilderness unlike any you've ever seen before. It's called the Selinda Reserve and it spans over 320,000 hectares of pure, unspoiled natural beauty. The Selinda Spillway is a true gem, situated in the northern reaches of Botswana. It's an ancient waterway, connecting the Okavango Delta in the west to its’ eastern neighbour, the Linyanti Swamps. For thirty long years it was dry, but since the floods of 2009, it's

Our journey began with a private flight from the Sabi Sands in South Africa to the Okavango Delta in Botswana, flying high above the stunning African landscapes on a PC 12. The views from the window were breathtaking, and I couldn't wait for the next step of the journey: a helicopter ride to Duba Explorers Camp, a treat which I was keeping a surprise from the group.    .   As we landed in Botswana, we were greeted by friendly staff who

There’s no better place to spend quality time with friends and family than on safari. Together, sharing meals, experiences, and creating memories that will last a lifetime and be discussed around dinner tables at home time and time again. A first night layover in Johannesburg is a good idea to acclimatise, rest, exercise, and rehydrate. The Saxon Hotel is the perfect place for this, with its slow, relaxing morning walks in the garden, which provide a great time to work out

We journeyed to Tengile Camp, an exclusive retreat for luxury seekers and adventure enthusiasts in the African wilderness. The camp is based on the banks of the stunning Sand River, a ribbon of gold and silver that winds its way through the African bushveld and is dotted with Ebony trees, home to a plethora of wildlife from antelopes, leopards, to hippos. The Sand River, a true gem in the wilderness, inspires with its beauty and wonder.   Stepping into my suite at

I love leopards. I love seeing leopards, but I love finding leopards more. The thrill of searching for the elusive solitary cat, the Princess of Darkness. They don’t always give themselves away so easily, therefore we rely on alarm calls of other creatures like squirrels, Vervet monkeys, baboons, birds, all of which don't like leopards and hence tell us exactly when they are around.     One day while on safari in Southern Africa, while sipping a cocktail by the pool midday, we

  The safari is an all-encompassing emotional experience. One does not just experience one emotion when out on a life-changing adventure like a safari, but many. One may think that a trip to Africa is simply just that, a trip, a vacation. However, until one actually arrives and falls into the experience, one cannot understand the deep impact it has on your mind, body and soul. There is raw adrenalin, there is deep appreciation, there is electric excitement, there is blunt

  The alarm rang at 5am. I peeked out from beneath my blanket into the dark room and wondered how today might differ from all those that had preceded it over the last 18 months. In truth, this day was about to offer me more than I could ever have imagined. This day was the start of an adventure. This day was special. I was going on a safari!   Since my youth I have lived quite differently to most. Since completing my photographic studies

The safari we were about the embark on was set to be one of the most memorable and magical experiences any of us could ever have imagined! It was prime safari time in Southern Africa; the end of the dry season had just arrived meaning that temperatures were perfect for successful game viewing!   After one night in Johannesburg at the beautiful Athol Place House and Villa, we took a slow start to the morning before heading off to the airport where our
