UNIQUE GLAMPING & LODGES

Lion Sands Treehouse was built at the site where explorer Guy Aubrey Chalkley set up camp in a centuries-old leadwood tree.

A treehouse makes for the ultimate sleep out experiences. There’s nothing quite like a giant tree spiraling through your suite to make you feel totally immersed in the wonder and romance of Africa. Sleep in harmony with nature and see the sun set and rise over the African landscape. You’ll experience the thrill of sleeping in the African bush with those added touches of luxury which are sure to make it a memorable night.

EXPEDITION OR RIVER CRUISING

For guests that love the style of traveling where everything is taken care of while you easily move between places, a safari is perfect.

A luxury Nile cruise is one option. The sun-drenched amber desert cut by the glittering Nile River provides the perfect backdrop to any journey. Cruise the Nile in a manner once reserved for queens and pharaohs. Explore up-close the fascinating history, mythology and legendary monuments, including the Valley of Kings and the Pyramids of Giza, then relax with a ride in a traditional felucca sailboat and afternoon tea. 

For those looking for a safari experience with a small group, a safari vacation package includes curated journeys in Africa's top destinations with accomodations, internal flights, tours, transfers and local hosts included.

ADVENTURES ON LAND & WATER

Considered one of Nature's masterpieces, the Okavango Delta offers visitors an insight into one of Africa's truly great wildernesses. 

Although Africa is thought of as a dry continent, it has a surprising array of natural wonders to explore from the grandest waterfall in Victoria Falls to forest treks.

Viewing game from the water on is a unique experience providing a different perspective to wildlife behavior and Botswana offers a number of ways to enjoy this form of watching wildlife. The Okavango Delta is a place of rivers and delta's, attracting large numbers of wildlife to the life-giving waters. Viewing the wildlife along these waterways is done in the traditional game drive vehicle, on foot, or in a traditional mokoro (canoe).

CONSIDER: A visit to Victoria Falls then visiting the untouched wilderness of either Zambia or Zimbabwe. Don't miss the gold standard of sustainability in Botswana.

 

CULTURAL EXPLORATIONS

The Bo-Kaap neighborhood of Cape Town has a rich and multicultural history.

There’s more to Africa than just wildlife. Like the world’s other great cities, Africa’s cities are an exciting mix of both the modern and ancient and are surprisingly multi-cultural.

Africa has cities for all styles of travelers, from fast-paced and sprawling metropolises like Egypt's Cairo, and South Africa's Johannesburg to Stone Town on the island of Zanzibar, where the pace of life moves slow.

Vibrant, eclectic, and culturally rich, many African cities are modern affairs set to a beautiful backdrop. South Africa's Cape Town is often considered one of the world's most beautiful cities for its mix of natural beauty - there's a 6,000-foot table-shaped mountain in the center and a string of white-sand beaches - and buzzy atmosphere. Expect stylish hotels, delectable restaurants with global cuisine, and plenty of cultural attractions and adventurous things to do.

 

CONSIDER: Private tours of museums and neighborhoods in South Africa’s Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Or enjoy a Cape to Cairo tour for the best of Africa. Visit our Top 10 Things to Do in Cape Town
