A Wonderful "Rainy Season" Safari
Zambia & Botswana
Mar 26 2015 Written by: Pedro O'Connor
After our first day the wilds of Africa we were content; everything after this was a bonus. Viewing the Victoria Falls at ground level is nothing short of breathtaking. However when one takes to the skies in a helicopter that culminates with a low level, high adrenalin rush, slingshot flight through the lower chasms of the Zambezi one truly finds their heart in their mouth with both fists pumping from excitement. After coming down we revelled in the opportunity to walk in close quarters with the Mosi oa Tunya rhino anti-poaching squad which allows privileged access to these endangered giants; ... [Read More]

A Solo Safari Through Southern Africa
Epic client Liz is just back from her first trip to Africa. Liz's solo safari included horseback riding through the Okavango Delta in Botswana, white water rafting down the Zambezi and a heli flight over Victoria Falls. Thank you Liz for sharing your fantastic journey! I have recently returned home to Australia from the most incredible and extraordinary adventure in Africa. Words are barely sufficient to describe the emotions that I feel about the amazing experience I have been lucky enough to enjoy. Lots of initial researching and internet googling started me on my quest, but it wasn’t until I hand-balled it ...
A Busy Week in The Botswana Bush
I have just arrived back from Africa, where I spent a very busy week in Botswana. I saw 13 different camps in 7 days. This kind of travel is essential for us to be able to maintain our level of knowledge of the different camps as well as the overall safari experience in these areas. As you might imagine though, it isn't exactly relaxing but regardless it is always wonderful to be in the pristine wilderness areas of northern Botswana. Despite the fact that I was rushing around (certainly not the recommended way to experience a safari!) I was also ...
Anita's Okavango Experience
I recently had the opportunity to visit the Okavango Delta for the first time. Hailing from Kenya, and being a specialist on all things East African, I was excited to see for myself what makes the Delta unique. On arrival in Maun, we took a 20 mins flight by light aircraft into the Delta – spectacular views! I landed on Jao island and was met by the manager of Kwetsani Camp, we jumped on a boat and 20 mins later through the reeds and beautiful water lilies we arrived at the jetty. As we got to the jetty we received a ...
Botswana Odyssey - 2 tents available - 16-24 Sept 2012
Just a quick note to update you on Brad's Botswana Odyssey safari in September. We have just two tents left, so four more people can still join us. Brad will be guiding this safari and would love to have you along. For a better idea as to what to expect, please take a look at our Botswana Odyssey video taken at a similar time last year. More information:The Okavango Delta is a place without peer. Aptly described as a "sea of land, land of water" it is without a doubt one of the last great wilderness areas in Africa. It is breathtakingly ...
Trans-Okavango - New Video and Report
I recently returned from an incredible safari in Botswana. This realised a long held dream to conduct a transect of the famed Okavango Delta by boat from north to south. In all my years of living in Botswana and guiding safaris there I never took the time to partake in a trans-Okavango. Well, good things come to those that wait. It exceeded all expectations and more! The trip started in the Kalahari Desert where we spent a couple of days in a wonderful little camp called Kalahari Plains. The Kalahari has just enjoyed a fantastic wet season so the landscape was ...
New Botswana and Zambia Video
Here is a short video taken in Botswana and Zambia, while guiding clients there recently. It was an incredible safari with some amazing game interaction. You will see that we enjoyed many close up encounters including witnessing a cheetah kill, a couple of wonderful sightings of the highly endangered wild dog, leopard on a kill, and numerous fantastic experiences with elephants.
