Safari Offers for Botswana, Green Season

Botswana

Come June to October in Botswana,  we scramble at the last minute to find availability due to the high demand over this time.   As we roll into November availability gets a little easier to find and pricing drops. This period (November to March) has warmer temperatures, dramatic African afternoon storms and a new lease on life literally as flowers bloom,  migratory birds return and there is an abundance of young antelope all around. The Delta itself, becomes more spacious as the water recedes and dries up and the green lush new vegetation is revealed. To sum up the USP’s for travel in the Green season are

  • Explosion of new life
  • Summer birds migrate back
  • Excellent lighting for Photography
  • Beautiful colours all around
  • Increase of predator sightings due to all the newborns
  • Dramatic late afternoon African thunderstorms

NAMIBIA

Here’s a land of vast quietness, of endless horizons, wide star-studded skies, a ghost town partially reclaimed by the desert, golden desert dunes as far as the eye can see and intriguing rocky plains. This is the getaway of all getaways, a destination in a million.

In a land largely untouched by modern man – with a tiny but fascinating population – you’ll come face-to-face with old Africa. Namibia is the ultimate land of discovery and soul-searching, with its wide horizons, unending stretches of honey-coloured dunes and startling rock formations. You’ll see an astonishing range of birds and animals, many of them rare… and the plant life is unlike anywhere else in the world.

The capital city of Windhoek and the seaside towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay have a wonderful charm of their own. In stark contrast, is the Etosha National Park, a vast oasis in the semi-desert, offering the most extraordinary game-viewing experiences. If you enjoy wildlife, you’ll be spoilt for choice for certain.

In turn, the lush Caprivi Strip has a network of rivers, forests, swamps and waterways. Treat yourself and take to the air in a hot air balloon over the massive sand dunes of Sossusvlei, a photographer’s dream backdrop to the parched pan of bleak, cracked mud, and a landscape marked by the occasional skeletons of ancient thorn trees. Gaze, probably in stunned silence, at the Skeleton Coast graveyard of huge, rusting shipwrecks. Take in the enormous Fish River Canyon, second in size only to the Grand Canyon.

Your memories of Namibia will be of unimaginable scenery and wildlife, and the fascination of traditional tribes such as the Herero, their women decked out in gorgeous outfits first introduced by missionaries in the 18th century, and the nomadic desert Himba.  See the entrancing Cape fur seal colony, the town of Swakopmund with its altogether different German architecture and atmosphere, the bushman paintings in Damaraland. Go quad biking on the dunes; indulge in oysters and champagne as the sun sets over the sea, streaking the sand and sea with rich gold’s and reds. This is Namibia, the quiet land of scenic drama and contrasts.

Must Do:

• Explore the oldest desert on earth, with some of the loftiest sand dunes, colouring from pale apricot to deepest red.

• Watch the enchanting springbok dancing across the mirage-shimmering Etosha Pan.

• Spend a delightful day in the quaint seaside town of Swakopmund, the adventure capital of Namibia and starting point for trips up and down the coast.

• Stand awe-struck by the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world.

• See the mysterious, ancient Bushman/San paintings at Twyfelfontein.

• Marvel at the desert-adapted elephant and rhino in Damaraland.
