Angola, Namibia & Botswana Expedition, 12 Nights

NEW itinerary- just added to our website!

Angola, Namibia & Botswana Expedition, 12 Nights

Angola is a large, developing country that borders Zambia, Namibia,
the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Congo.
Largely closed off for the last few years, it’s an almost mythical destination and
one of the continent’s most diverse.

The landscapes range from beautiful beaches on the coast and pristine tracts of miombo woodland and open floodplains in the southeast, to highland plateaus, jungles and vast lakes and rivers.

2020 will see the launch of our new flying safaris to Angola.
The first trips of their kind, each will be tailor-made to suit all interests but most will follow the paths of the rivers that feed the Okavango and Kwando river systems from their sources in the Angolan Highlands to the Okavango Delta in Botswana and finally,
to the sands of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

The Source to the Sands is a 12-night itinerary and the ultimate Angolan expedition.
It begins with three nights in a simple mobile camp in the source lakes regions of the Angolan Highlands, in the company of National Geographic explorers and scientists,
followed by two nights in the Cubango Reserve, which straddles both the Cuatir and Cubango rivers, and a day trip to the Cuito Cuanavale battlefields.
From there, it’s into Namibia to spend two nights on Nkasa Island in Nkasa Rupara National Park, then across the border into the Okavango Delta for three nights.
This epic journey ends in the Makgadikgadi where the waters dissipate into the sands at Meno a Kwena camp on the fringes of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

A safari to Angola is not about seeing the Big Five.
It’s a conservation journey through raw Africa where nothing is premeditated or orchestrated. The country is one of Africa’s most remote and little-known wilderness areas and the future of some of the most iconic wildlife areas, the Okavango Delta and the Lower Zambezi in particular, depends on the Angolan Highlands and what is done to protect them as the country rapidly industrializes, post-civil war.

9 Night Machaba Special

Stay 9, Pay 6
An extraordinary value!!

3 nights at Machaba Camp – Luxury Tent
Machaba, in the game rich Khwai area of the eastern Okavango Delta, overlooks the Moremi Game Reserve.
Nestled within the riverine vegetation along the Khwai River,
the camp boasts on-going game sightings due to its prime setting.
Meandering forest pathways link to the open-plan, tented main camp ideal for socializing or dining while absorbing the picturesque scenery. A pool, set to one side of the camp, affords welcome relief during warm days.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives (off roading and night drives permitted), visits to the local community and short mokoro excursions. Guided walks are subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide.

3 nights at Gomoti Plains Camp – Luxury Tent
This extraordinarily beautiful area is home to large herds of buffalo, a healthy lion population and the largest population of giraffe in Botswana.
Offering both land and water activities, guests may enjoy game drives, walking (guide dependent), birding, boat and mokoro excursions (water – levels dependent). Due to its position on a game path, there is the added excitement of animals wandering through the camp. Perhaps cool off in the camp pool, when not on game experiences.

3 nights at Ngoma Safari Lodge – Suite
Located within the Chobe Forest Reserve, bordering the Chobe National Park,
Ngoma Safari Lodge commands panoramic views over the Chobe River and Caprivi floodplain.
Between exciting game drives through Chobe, night drives in the Forest Reserve concession, and cultural interactions, unwind on sundecks or viewing decks, keeping an eye out for the large herds of elephant and buffalo for which Chobe is world-renowned.
The lodge was developed together with the community and has a direct and positive impact on this community.

Namibia Green Season 2020- up to 40% off

Namibia Green Season
Why to travel during Green Season?!

1. Winter Sun. Escape the damp and dismal northern hemisphere winters, and enjoy warm sunny summer days with average min/max temperatures of 17/29 ºC.

2. Avoid the crowds (a relative term in Namibia) of the high season and ensure you can stay at the venues proposed with the true feeling of Namibian peace and solitude.

3. When and if it rains, enjoy short spectacular afternoon thundershowers which only last an hour or so.  This is great to watch and rarely causes any great inconvenience.

4. It is the best time from a weather perspective to explore Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.

5. Experience the ‘season of bounty’, with a green and flowering desert when all forms of life look strong and healthy.

6. Observe the calving season for most antelope species and the resulting heightened activity among predators.

7. Look out for spectacular birding opportunities with many migratory species flocking in to enjoy this time of warmth and abundance.

8. Look out for antelope species which also tend to congregate in larger herds at this time of the year, allowing for great wildlife photography.

9. Breathe the air which is crisp and clean as the rain has generally cleared the dust in the air, allowing for great landscape photography.

10. Enjoy the cloud cover which diffuses the otherwise harsh light conditions and makes the country look truly benevolent, especially when there is also some grass after the early rains.

11. Share the excitement and enjoyment of the Namibian people when they welcome the rains that ensure future good grazing as well as plentiful wild fruit and other natural treasures.

Botswana “Green Season” Migration Special- Jan-Mar 2020

Botswana Migration Special
Green Season
6 or 9 nights
Jan – Mar 2020

Image

Botswana Green Season

Green Season offers a different side of Africa, when breeding and hunting occurs amidst rich vegetation.
The green season is unquestionably the best time to visit as additional species migrate to the country to breed and nest. The lush foliage of the green season, contrasted with the stunningly blue African sky, creates a remarkable backdrop for photographers. And an afternoon storm may reward you with a rainbow or two streaking across the sky.
This is “off season” where crowds are few and prices low.

6 Night Migration Special 2020

3 nights at Migration Expeditions
3 nights at Khwai Bush Camp

Experience the beauty and tranquillity of Nxai Pan National Park at Migration Expeditions.
Sit back and relax on morning or afternoon game drive in search of the famous Kalahari lions, the large elephant bulls or the Zebra Migration. Try your hand at new photographic techniques in this unique setting or take a half-day trip to the well known Baine’s Baobabs.

The Khwai area is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in Botswana.
Khwai is a predator-rich area. The magnificent Khwai river is the hub for some of the most outstanding wildlife.
Species to be viewed include elephant, buffalo, zebra, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe, eland, sable, hippo, hyena and various other nocturnal species.
