Our December family Safaris are really very special, it’s a glorious time of year, the festive season. It is summer here in Southern Africa. No white Christmas for us, it’s hot, swimming pool weather, beach weather. Cape Town is glorious at this time of year, and this is where we started. The Silo Hotel is magnificent, with only 26 rooms, its location could not be better, walk out of the hotel and into the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, for top

Multiple repeat friends and clients, some on their 12th safaris, many on their 5th and 6th safaris, are back for the ultimate Safari in South Africa. Literally the ultimate. 9 nights of Safari, 1 night on arrival in Johannesburg, private chartered aircraft, in between 3 magnificent locations. This is something to get excited about. And 18 Texans! Friends, family, sisters, brothers in laws, mothers and fathers, uncles. What a fun family, so well-travelled and versed in the art of safari, good

Return guests who become friends are the best on Safari, having travelled together previously we headed for the best East Africa has to offer, to celebrate a special wedding anniversary back in Africa. To acclimatize, we spend 2 nights in the quaint safari town of Arusha, sleep, rest, exercise and exploring. A day in Arusha is always well spent, we learnt so much about coffee, explored local markets, shopped till we dropped, amazing Masai beadwork from the finest local artists and

A young, fit, active family on a 9-night Southern African journey, memories made forever, together. Shared moments at dinner, watching the choir sing around a roaring fire at Mala Mala, fishing on the Zibidianja lagoon, tiger fish running, the Okavango Sunset, and rolling down sand dunes in Namibia. Highlights of an incredible trip, never to be forgotten.   Both Delta and United flights generally arrive early evening in Johannesburg, which works well, as it is vital to take a night or two

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
