Our Destinations Botswana | Malawi | Mozambique | Namibia | South Africa | Zambia | Zimbabwe | Other Destinations Detailed Map of Wildlife Areas | Some Helpful Websites We have prepared an overview of our favourite destinations for you to read about, but would prefer you to tell us exactly what interests you and where you would like to go. We will then work with you to tailor-make your dream safari and provide you with a quotation. We recommend that you spend as much time as possible under canvas, but we can arrange lodge accommodation along the way, or before and after, if you wish. Your safari should be anything from 10 days to a month in duration. The choice is yours. Our trips either start from Johannesburg, South Africa or from the closest safari town to your ultimate destination, and from there head off into the the wildest parts of southern Africa where a 4x4 expedition vehicle is essential and often destinations can only be reached by gravel roads and 4x4 tracks. However, if there is somewhere that you want to visit that we haven't mentioned, we will happily include that on your itinerary. We also recommend that you visit at least two countries on your safari to experience different eco-systems and to travel amongst people of different countries and cultures. The best months to travel are June through to November, although we recommend that you avoid the South African school holidays in July and October. We advise that you book your safari as far in advance as possible (at least six months although a year is preferable!) to avoid disappointment and ensure that we can secure the destinations of your choice. We recommend that you restrict the size of your party to three Land Rovers accommodating a maximum of four people in each. We believe that the African safari should remain an intimate experience and allow your team leaders the time to cater to your needs. Once we have finalised your itinerary, prepared your quotation and received payment, we will send out our food questionnaire and a suggested packing list. Your team leaders will then meet you with your fully-customised 4x4 expedition vehicle at Johannesburg International Airport. Alternatively, they can meet you at the airport of your choice (Joburg, Lusaka, Windhoek, Maun etc.) - but be warned there is an additional charge for collecting your vehicle outside of Johannesburg. After a thorough briefing, the greatest adventure of your life will start and the safari will head off towards your first destination.
