Wild by Nature
Make Southern Africa your Next Safari Stop
If you've put off the wish-list African Safari, now is the time to start planning. For 45+ years, African Travel, Inc. has been curating bespoke adventures showcasing the best of Southern Africa’s wildlife and culture. The experts at African Travel have lived and traveled extensively across Africa and know the right Africa for you. Their newest trip, Platinum Botswana, is certain to spark wanderlust and provides travelers inspiration for a handcrafted journey. What to anticipate? Once-in-a-lifetime experiences combined with stays at the finest lodges on the continent.
After a warm welcome in Johannesburg, you’ll arrive to the otherworldly vistas and glamour of the newly renovated Jack’s Camp, a legendary property in the remote Makgadikgadi Pans of the Kalahari combining old-world sophistication with incredible views. When asked when to visit, African Travel President Sherwin Banda says,
“Botswana is beautiful in the green season when the lush foliage, baby wildlife, and waterways deliver a compelling backdrop. We like to time visits to Africa’s second largest migration.”
You’ll see Botswana contrasts as you next explore the Selinda Reserve at Zarafa Camp, where you’ll enjoy one of Botswana’s most prolific wildlife areas and see uncommon African species like African wild dog, roan, and sable.
Sustainability is a key focus for African Travel, and Xigera Safari Lodge is the gold standard for Botswana. Located in the heart of the Okavango Delta where water safaris reign supreme, this 12-suite, solar-powered lodge was built as a personal love letter to the African bush. It celebrates contemporary art and design with a living gallery of bespoke works commissioned exclusively for the property. Banda adds,
“Some of my fondest Botswana memories are sitting in stunning locations with a drink and watching the animals pass by. At Xigera, your suite floats over the water and is the perfect vantage point. Or, take a mokoro for a feet-in-water sundowner. Everything from helicopter flights to walking safaris will be arranged on your own time.”
Depending on whether you crave more action or leisurely pursuits, African Travel can arrange a post-safari stop in Victoria Falls to see the famed “Smoke that Thunders,” or post-bush beach escape to the white sands of the Seychelles or Mozambique.
