November: Last Chance EVER for our Wild Botswana Safari, Save $600 per person
That's right! Our most popular Wildland Adventure in Botswana  is coming to an end after 2014 and there only few spaces remaining on the final departures in November (11th - 20th or 24th - Dec 2nd). The semi-permanent mobile safari camps utilized in this itinerary are strategically located within exclusive wildlife concessions which have a strict occupancy limits to ensure low pressure on the wildlife and an intimate wildlife experience for guests. In 2015, these camps will be packed up and moved to make more room in the concessions for higher priced accommodations.

Delving Deep into Southern Africa

Delving Deep into Southern Africa
This April and May I spent three weeks on safari covering a huge swath of Southern Africa from Zimbabwe to Zambia to Botswana to South Africa. While clocking over 1 year total in combined time on various trips to Africa I had not yet been to some of the famed parks of Southern Africa and to be honest I was bit unprepared for how impressive this part of Africa would be and the lasting memories I’d take home. I've written a series of blogs highlighting some of the destinations I found most interesting during my safari, I saw way too much to squeeze into one blog.   Unique Habitat and Exceptional Game on Safari in Hwange Favorite Lodges and Awesome Fishing in Mana Pools Victoria Falls: Zambia vs Zimbabwe Your guide to safaris in the Okavango Delta In addition, I created a photo gallery from my trip: Keeping it wild, Jeff Stivers...

Your guide to safaris in the Okavango Delta

Your guide to safaris in the Okavango Delta
Flying over the Okavango Delta is an incredible experience. The sheer size of the delta is hard to grasp when viewing it on a map or Google Earth and it seems endless when viewing it in person. When fully spread out it covers an area nearly 155mi by 95mi with 290 billion gallons of water. The elevation change over this huge area is only about 215 feet so that means the water slowly creeps in over months to reach its furthest extent. What would otherwise be flat Kalahari dessert is a rich mixture of grasslands, woodlands and papyrus swamps which consume some 60% of the waters with the rest mostly lost through evaporation. It’s heaven for wildlife and a real treat for any visitor. I traveled around extensively within the area and instead of getting lost in the details of each area I’d like to provide some basic observations about what...
