Safari Specialists

If you're a safari specialist, the safari itself is more important than where you lay your head after a day in the bush. You'll often prefer more time in each place to let it under your skin, to develop your interests with your guide and to discover the stories behind the animals they live with.

Our Safari Specialist selection is about enjoying a slower pace and a good level of exclusivity where you can chase the sighting of a lifetime or let the quiet of the bush soak in. For those who carry more than one lens in their camera bag and have a passion for photography, we recommend adding private activities to give you the time you need for the perfect shot, whether it's a leopard cub or a wattled crane.

We recommend tweaking these itineraries to suit your personal needs, whether your mission is to track wild dog across the Linyanti, embrace the sights and sounds of the bush on a private mobile safari or something else entirely.

Get in touch and we'll create your perfect safari experience.

"Our trip with Letaka Safaris is one of the best trips we've ever taken. Between the landscape, the birds, the animals, and most of all, Disho and the crew, we had an amazingly wonderful time. It's certainly something we want to repeat in the future."

The camps in the Linyanti's exclusive Kwando concession offer a good old-fashioned wildlife experience and this itinerary gives you four nights to indulge your interests. Not shy of going off road, Kwando guides and trackers go out of their way to find what you're after - be it a hunting pack of wild dog or a shy leopard. Vehicles in these camps don't have canopies, allowing keen photographers to shoot with unobstructed views.

"Game viewing at Little Kwara Camp was excellent - we saw denning wild dogs (ten puppies only 3 days out of the den!) and followed two lionesses stalking game through long grass. We wouldn't have thought that the Kwando camps could be so different but they were and so worth the money."

"My guide Ron at Duma Tau was absolutely fantastic, hands down the best guide I've ever had anywhere in Africa. He knew about all the particular animals, their histories and movements and quickly picked up on the things I was interested in."

This safari fulfils, exceeds and sets a new level of expectation for decadence in the bush. Fantastic guiding and unbeatable wildlife areas are the draw-cards. Zarafa Camp offers reams of personality and over the top extras - they'll lend you Swarovski HD binoculars, and a Canon DSLR and lens kit, to make sure you capture the detail. Continue to the wildly lavish Vumbura Plains with enough floor space to cartwheel across and wind down at Mombo, Botswana's best concession for wildlife.
