Surrounded By Beauty At Savanna Lodge in Sabi Sands

The first member of our welcoming party at Savanna Lodge, Sabi Sands, South Africa. Upon arrival in our private Executive Suite tented cabana at Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands Kruger National Park Conservancy in South Africa, we were immediately surrounded by beauty on both sides. Before we even stepped foot in our tented suite we were stunned by the spacious luxury cabana in the bush and were just relishing in the moment of our new home when we heard a deep breath behind us and turned around to see a lone elephant had just arrived for a drink at the private waterhole in our back yard. She was just yards away (but separated by a low-lying electric fence) which her and us some comfort! Looking one way we first were stunned by the beauty of our tented cabana at Savanna Lodge. So, we dropped our day packs, quickly grabbed cameras...

A Dog’s Life On Safari In Botswana

Starred down by a pack of wild dogs on safari in Botswana. ....we were taken by surprise when we rounded the corner to find multiple pairs of big ears and piercing eyes starring us down in the middle of the dirt track. Headed out with "Ace" on safari in Botswana. Early in the morning on safari in Botswana our guide Ace spotted some paw prints on the dusty earth. You never know what you’ll encounter on safari and not far from Savuti Camp in the Linyanti concession featured in several of our  Botswana Wildland Adventures  we found ourselves tracking wild dogs. Based on the paw prints on top of our tire tracks from the day before Ace knew they were near. Impalas are in rut in Botswana. Males are busy watching over their females and young impalas are a favorite prey for wild dogs. The African wild dog, also known as the Cape hunting dog,...

Victoria Falls on our Southern Africa safari as seen from the walking path on the Zambia side. The two main highlights starting out our safaris in Botswana , Zambia and Zimbabwe was flying into Livingston and seeing Victoria Falls and then walking with rangers to see endangered white rhinos.

On The Zambezi Between Zambia and Zimbabwe

Our first sundowner on our Zambia safari on the Zambezi. It’s utterly unworldly going directly from our night at the JFK Airport Garden Suites Hotel to our luxurious Toka Leya tent camp having dinner with a hippo walking below our feet. After 15 hours of flying time without nightfall we find ourselves in a hazy daze having sundowners on the banks of Zambezi River amongst colorful bee eaters, big crocs and eles in the secure company of Nelson, our new friend and exceptional boatman/naturalist guide. Nelson, our boatman on the Zambezi. One of many skilled and exceptionally lovely African guides and boatmen taking us through the wilds on safari in Zambia and Botswana. This was the first of many gin and tonics to come in the African bush as we set out to meet up with our guides and outfitters from Zambia to Zimbabwe, traveling to Botswana and South Africa inspecting...
