Get to know the Southern Africa safari experience

A Southern Africa safari is a very complex experience. Although it always includes the quintessential game drive, you will find that each destination you visit will have exclusive activities that are unique to that location. And this is what makes a safari in Southern Africa a truly exciting experience.

"If there were one more thing I could do, it would be to go on Safari again."

Karen Blixen

Early morning wake-up calls are synonymous with being on safari and as you head out into the bush you are reminded once again of the beauty of an African sunrise. With the animals being the most active in the early light of dawn it makes sense to leave the comfort of your bed to experience the anticipation and excitement of discovering wildlife in their natural habitat.

The sounds of the bush awakening will have you on the edge of your seats as you peer out into the surrounding shrub searching for what may be hiding in the shadows. With your highly trained ranger and tracker guiding you every step of the way, you will start spotting the wildlife you have come to find.

Big 5 sightings may not always be common but the likelihood of spotting at least a few on a game drive is high.

Going off-road in search of the Big 5 is a highlight of any safari and while the adrenaline pounds and your expectation increases, that moment when you first come in proximity of the animal you have been tracking, is one that will remain in your memory forever.

This is what safari is all about! However, depending on where you are in Southern Africa you may be able to experience a variety of unique and exclusive activities that will bring you closer to the wonder of nature than ever before.

A mokoro experience in the Okavango Delta region of Botswana allows you to gain a new perspective of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Nowhere else in the world can you be propelled along the waterways and channels in a traditional dugout canoe while elephants and antelope drink at the edge of the water. Traveling by mokoro is slow by nature and affords you the opportunity to sit back and relax and connect with nature in a whole new way.

In the desert of Namibia, you may find yourself unable to choose from the diverse safari options available to you. Nature drives allow you to discover ecosystems that flourish with more life than you would expect in a desert. Tracking the desert-adapted black rhino with the Save the Rhino Trust is an unforgettable experience that allows you to gain insight into the conservation of an endangered species. And of course, there is nothing more romantic than witnessing an African sunrise from a hot air balloon floating above the Namib.
