Chobe Game Reserve

Covering an area of about 4,250 square miles, Chobe National Park is the third largest game park/reserve in Botswana. The Chobe River forms the northern border and in the southwest the park borders on the Moremi Reserve. The park consists of four main regions, each with its own types of vegetation and geological features. The area in the Chobe River flood plain is known as the Serondela region and is famous for its huge herds of African elephant and buffalo. Hundreds of the huge animals can be seen coming down to drink at the river in the dry season (July-September). Safari game viewing by boat from the river can be very rewarding as well. Chobe Game Lodge is the only lodge inside the park and we love their all female guiding team.

Okavango Delta & Elephant Experience

On arrival in Maun you will be assisted with the light plane transfer to Stanley’s Camp. This camp offers some of the best African safari game viewing in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, including the rare and elusive wild dog. A completely unique Stanley’s feature is an educational experience with a group of semi-habituated African elephants. Spend a day walking with the elephants and observing them up close in their natural environment . Other activities include mokoro canoe excursions (subject to water levels), exclusive bush dinners, and game drives in customized, open 4 x 4 safari vehicles – including night drives. Guests also have the exclusive option of walking safaris with an armed professional guide. We love Stanley's Camp for it's warm staff, luxury tents and of course, the elephants!

One of the unique experiences at Stanley's Camp is the opportunity to meet a rescued elephant herd.Three orphaned elephants have been brought up in the area and have been used to being with humans since an early age. Every morning the elephants go for a walk around their home range, foraging for food and checking that all is well. They look for fresh fruit in the nearby trees and interact with guests. A few people each day are able to accompany them on their walk through the bush and see the wilds of Africa through the eyes of an elephant - a truly uplifting experience that makes a lasting impression on all who share their time with the elephants. The morning includes a leisurely paced walk with the semi-habituated elephants, and a picnic lunch in their company.

Makgadikgadi Pans

Travel to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, the network of salt pans found in Botswana's eastern regions are a striking physical feature and some of the largest of their kind in the world. The pans, huge, flat expanses of hot, sun-blasted terrain and fringed by vegetated islands and peninsulas, were once part of a great superlake that covered much of northern Botswana. This desolate landscape offers nothing but sand and sky yet its eerily silent fossil beaches and stunted red baobab trees leave an impression on every visitor.

Leroo La Tau Camp is situated on the banks of the Boteti River which forms the western boundary of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The camp rises majestically above the dry Boteti Riverbed which stretches across the western border of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. Here explore on day and night game drives with the possibility of boating on the Boteti River, depending on the water levels.

The park is populated by up to 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators. This African safari lodge offers a raised hide above the Boteti River where guests can enjoy spectacular wildlife sightings. Having explored the area and enjoyed a spectacular wildlife on guided day and night game drives, you can retire after dinner to a splendid fireplace overlooking the waterhole. Leroo La Tau translates as ‘lion’s paw’, but although the surrounding area features lion, zebra and wildebeest, it also boasts Chobe bushbuck, leopard, cheetah, brown- and spotted-hyena, impala, kudu, jackal, porcupine, genet and caracal, to name but a few. In addition, there is also the possibility of seeing the rare white rhinoceros.

Tswalu Kalahari Reserve

The Northern Cape is South Africa’s largest province, framed by Calvinia in the south, Springbok and Port Nolloth in the west, Upington and Kuruman in the north and Hopetown and De Aar in the east. The region is a semi-desert, and yet the “Green Kalahari” in the west and north, also known as the Namakwa section, brings forth explosive displays of wild flowers from late July to November. Dramatic thunderstorms boom across the wide plains, annual rainfall is unreliable and temperatures range from 37 Degree C in summer, to -6 Degree C in winter. The Tankwa-Karoo National Park, the Namaqua National Park, the Geogap Nature Reserve and the Augrabies Falls National Park have varying topography, good came sightings and unique flora. This region has diverse cultures of frontier history and brave missionaries; it also boasts countless challenges for adrenaline junkies, hikers, mountain bikers and 4x4 adventurers.

The safari game drives here are never standard; if, at a moment’s notice, you want to spend an entire day in the bush, we will pack a delicious picnic and take off. Bush walks offer the chance to get closer to the land, even to track desert black rhino on foot. Top quality horses can accommodate all levels of riding ability. You can explore the Kalahari from every possible angle. Two donkeys, Pedro and Don Juan, pull a traditional Kalahari cart, still a main form of transport for many here today. Hot-air balloon trips over this vast wilderness can be booked in advance. Or you can simply sleep out under the thousands of stars in the Kalahari’s “diamond skies”.

For anyone with a particular passion, special talks can be arranged with the reserve’s ecologists. Photographers will find unending possibilities at Tswalu, combining shots of unique wildlife with dazzling panoramas. Walks to ancient archaeological sites will reveal rock carvings created by the Bushmen up to 380,000 years ago, some of the oldest art on Earth. At other times, the pools or shaded salas beckon. Our exclusive spa completes your relaxation; its range of soothing and revitalizing treatments celebrates the natural heritage of Africa. Sometimes the most exhilarating activity is no activity at all. Watch in silence as the sun slips below an endless horizon. We love Tswalu because it simply breathtaking, with the ultimate in luxury set in one of the most beautiful places.
