More African safari notes.
“Where do we begin?” Firstly, you choose a safari destination. Lots of options, so we keep it short and sweet with this key-points summary.
Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Experience: great wildlife, very close up.
Added value: outstanding wildlife viewing all year round. Kruger is serious lion country, and there’s the extra thrill of being in an open-sided vehicle with your expert game ranger and tracker. Sit, relax, enjoy the sounds, the smells, the sights of Africa, up close and very personal. The safari lodges are modern and comfortable, and the private reserves within greater Kruger are very easy to get to. A bit more …
Okavango Delta, Botswana.
Experience: an ecological jewel with stunning wildlife.
Added value: remote, a very rare experience of a vast shallow-water delta in the heart of a desert. Exquisitely pristine, it offers superb game viewing, mostly water-based from dug-out canoes, but also with vehicle viewing at some lodges. A bit more …
Chobe National Park, Botswana.
Experience: abundant elephant herds.
Added value: large elephant herds, a joy to observe in their group interactions from close up. They are attracted to the Chobe River to drink, so game viewing is a combination of water-based and land-based experiences. Another plus is that it is close to the spectacular Victoria Falls. It is easily accessible. A bit more …
Luangwa Valley, Zambia.
Experience: unspoiled Africa distilled to its essence.
Added value: a remote, untouched explorer’s paradise, highly regarded for the walking safari experience. You get very close to Africa by touching, hearing and feeling it. It teems with wildlife and is still very uncommercialised. Game drives and water viewing as well. A bit more …
The Serengeti & Masai Mara, Tanzania & Kenya.
Experience: epic, ancient force of nature.
Added value: long, shimmering vistas of stunning landscapes that speak of quintessential Africa. For front row seats to the last remaining great natural migration on earth, you come to this region, the original home of the safari. A spectacular natural phenomenon to experience during our age of dwindling wild areas. A bit more …
Experience: all the wildlife, all in your own time.
Added value: a large, remote desert setting, bigger than Kruger; consequently the wildlife is concentrated around specific waterholes, called pans. This is obviously attracts the best game viewing. Self-drive is the usual method of getting there. It is more comfortable, temperature-wise, in our winter months. A bit more …
Experience: some of the best safari guides in Africa.
Added value: an untouched, undeveloped country in the main, which, as a result, offers great authenticity and a strong sense of true wilderness. This is home to all the iconic wild animals we know and love, and not only that, some of the finest game rangers in Africa. In addition, it is home to the Victoria Falls. A bit more …

“It is sometimes frightening to know who to trust when planning such a large trip via Internet. Each step of the way, though, everything was done exactly when she said it would be and how she said it would be. Wonderful experience and cannot say enough about how responsive and caring Marianne is.”
“This was our first safari experience, but–as former airline employees–my wife and I are experienced travelers, including destinations in the Far East, South America, the Caribbean (lots!), Russia, and Europe (30+). Marianne gave us excellent advice with respect to when to travel, what to bring, where to stay, and what to see.”
“I cannot use enough superlatives to describe the perfection of our mother/daughter trip Marianne designed for us! She thought of every detail ensuring both our comfort and safety.”
