PRIVATE GUIDED SAFARIS
If you want to be looked after by someone who has travelled the route before.
A private guided safari means you will be accompanied during your whole trip by one of our guides. At all times there will be someone with you to help you out with the small little things during your trip: luggage, customs, medical and dietary requirements, an unexpected travel hiccup which happen in Africa despite precaution being taken. These guides have knowledge about Africa, about the do and don'ts , it's politics and people.
Due to the nature of the characters that live this kind of life, they are great characters, with a fund of patience and wonderful sense of humour. This is supported by a love of people and the wildlife whose lives and ways they share with the lucky guests traveling with them.
The other important advantage is there is full continuity during the entire trip, thereby avoiding guests being subject to several repetitions about game and wildlife facts, and procedures in different camps. The guide liases directly with camp managers and the local guides to facilitate any requirements.
To maintain the flow of a safari, we recommend the use of Private Charter aircraft wherever possible between camps, as this precludes need to over-night in unnecessary destinations en route to other camps, and saves time generally.
The use of private dedicated vehicles is another recommendation as this again allows a fully exclusive experience and creates opportunity for flexibility and a degree of independence in each camp. Naturally, this introduces extra costs but it is well worth it and enhances each destination.
LOCALLY HOSTED SAFARIS
The most popular way of travelling.
Travelers on safari without a Private Guide will have the benefit of being hosted in the camps by the staff of the camps. That means the managers and local camp guides will liaise with you and be your hosts at each different camp. Therefore travelers will meet different staff at each camp, and although this does incur an element of repetition on drives and in the evenings at dinner, it is a perfectly satisfactory way of having a safari. Travelers will need to inform the local guide at each camp of their previous experiences and sightings.
Many travelers do this and have good experiences.
When time is limited.
Flying safaris are commonly requested when a group of friends or family wish to travel quickly, efficiently and often independently with (or without) a Private Guide. The independent travel style ensures that no extra nights are spent in air hubs waiting for scheduled flights between destinations, and depending on aircraft sizes, these can used between smaller camps with gravel airfields which are common in rural Africa. Normally the pilot or pilots are familiar with the territory they are flying over and can point features of interest along the way, particularly in Namibia and travelers get a better perspective of the country from the air. Some personalized flying safaris are able to create very special itineraries using small out of the way wildlife destinations.
However, a flexible mindset is needed as charter flights depend on weather conditions.
It is a very fun way to travel!
SPECIAL INTEREST SAFARIS
For photographers and birdwatchers
These safaris are specifically designed in close co-operation with travelers who may be birdwatchers, culturally focused, large mammals only, golfers or serious photographers. The duration of each visit depends entirely on the travelers and how long they wish to spend with particular animals or birds in that location.
