Our custom designed itineraries can include any number of days and the dates are suited to your time table.
We will discuss with you the various options available and make suggestions based on your interests and expectations. You can include several different camps, lodges or hotels. We always suggest at least 2 nights in any one location; the ideal stay in a safari camp is 3 or 4 nights.
The style on these type of safaris is usually very comfortable with stays in permanent luxury tented camps and lodges; you can also include mobile tented camps in your custom itinerary.
An additional option for this style of safari, especially if you are traveling in a small group, is to have a private guide for the duration of the trip. Having a private guide is a value added feature which allows continuity. Some of the private guides we use are specialists in certain fields, such as birding or predators.
Access to each camp or lodge is usually by light aircraft; this maximizes time on the ground for game viewing.
In this section you will find some suggested itineraries, which can be adjusted to suit your needs.
It is important to note that for some countries you should start planning your safari well in advance of travel – a year in advance is not too early, especially when considering Botswana as your safari destination.

This custom designed safari can include any number of camps in Botswana.
At least 7 days are required in Botswana to fully appreciate the diversity of habitats and regions - the ideal itinerary would include the Moremi area, the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti/Chobe area. If you are visiting Botswana between January and May, then we highly recommend the inclusion of a camp in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, as this is when the desert comes to life.
This safari can easily be combined with Namibia, Victoria Falls or Zambia.

Kalahari Plains Camp is located in a prime location in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. This area comes to life during the rains from December to May, with lush green grass on the valley floors attracting large concentrations of wildlife, including predators such as lion and cheetah.
This camp combines very well with other Botswana areas such as the Okvango Delta and the Linyanti region.
Katavi National Park is one of the great wildlife experiences of the world. Miles from anywhere, it has almost mythical status, and, it's thought, a greater density of mammals than any other Tanzanian reserve.
Chada Katavi Camp is ideally used in combination with Greystoke Mahale Camp on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, where tracking for chimpanzees is the order of the day.
On a far-flung beach along the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika, below a huge story-book tropical forest, is the tiny sanctuary of Greystoke Mahale. The water is clear as gin, the air scented, and the living very easy.
Greystoke Mahale combines well with Chada Katavi or at the end of a Serengeti safari.
The Selous Game Reserve, at a massive 50,000 kilometres square, (that's bigger than Belgium) is a wilderness on a huge scale - the largest, in fact, in the whole of Africa. Set on a wide curve of the great Rufiji River, Sand Rivers Selous is both expedition base, and safari retreat. The lodge is small but beautifully formed, with an imposing mess, swimming pool, excellent cooking and careful, at-your-whim service.
Sand Rivers is very accessible from Dar es Salaam and combines well with Zanzibar and a Serengeti safari.
This 7-night Zambian safari combines lodges in both the Lower Zambezi National Park and South Luangwa National Park. During the dry season, June to November, wildlife is drawn to the permanent waters of the Zambezi and Luangwa Rivers and sightings are spectacular. Activities include walking safaris, game drives, fishing, canoeing and boating.
This safari combines well with Kafue National Park, Victoria Falls and Malawi.
Abu allows guests the extraordinary privilege of being part of an African elephant herd, including riding and walking with them through the bush - possibly the ultimate elephant educational safari. Departures are every Tuesday and Saturday.
This 4-night safari will take you to Zambia's wildlife rich Kafue National Park; one of the largest parks in Africa, Kafue has excellent game viewing along its permanent rivers and the open plains of Busanga. For birders, this is a particularly good area to view species that are not found in southern Africa.
Wilderness Safaris operate several excellent camps in the northern Kafue.
This itinerary can be added to a Botswana safari or an extended Zambia trip.
A luxury 6-night safari at two of Kenya's most luxurious lodges - Saruni Masai Mara & Saruni Samburu. Enjoy spectacular game viewing, cultural interaction with the Masai and Samburu people and unwide in exclusive accommodation.
This safari combines well with Amboseli, the Kenyan coast or Tanzania.
