Okavango Delta - Xigera Safari Lodge

6 meerkat rating

The epitome of luxury, this extraordinary lodge offers an exceptional experience at every level. Blending opulence with sustainability, the lodge showcases distinctive art pieces, including furniture crafted by local artisans. The game in the surrounding area is exceptional, and the staff possess an intuitive ability to treat guests with the utmost hospitality. Guests can indulge in a unique range of activities set in the heart of the Okavango Delta, beyond traditional game viewing by boat, vehicle and mokoro. One can enjoy the interactive culinary experience, a wine cellar tour, holistic and wellness therapies.

Okavango Delta - Vumbura Plains

5 meerkat rating

A splurge indeed! Vumbura Plains has an enviable reputation as one of the most extravagant and sought-after lodges in Delta. And while we do love all the little ‘extras’ (like an Olympus photo hub), it’s Vumbura’s location in the Kwedi concession - which allows for walking, ballooning, night drives and helicopter flips – that makes it really special.

Chobe - Ngoma Safari Lodge

5 meerkat rating

If it’s uninterrupted vistas of the Chobe floodplains you want, then that’s what you’ll get at Ngoma. Built on a ridge, it has sweeping views down to the Chobe River, a beacon for massive herds of elephant and buffalo. This is a sophisticated lodge with quirky touches in the décor and welcome extras like sun-splashed plunge pools.

Savuti, Linyanti & Selinda - Zarafa

6 meerkat rating

Zarafa offers fantastic game viewing, exceptional service and creative cuisine in the exclusive Selinda concession. Beaten copper and polished wood dominate throughout, while private fireplaces, plunge pools and outdoor showers add serious comfort. Throw in try-before-you-buy Swarovski binoculars and a Canon DSLR with lens kit for every guest and you’ve got THE extraordinary safari experience.

MakgadiKgadi Pans National Park - Kubu Island Adventure

5 meerkat rating

This is an expedition to satisfy the most adventurous soul!! Taking place over 4 or 5 nights, based from either Jacks’s, San or Camp Kalahari, the expedition includes 2 nights sleeping out under the stars. The remoteness of your night out on the pans, coupled with the mystique of Kubu Island is matched only by the thrill of heading out by quad bike as a ‘desert desperado’ into the vast nothingness of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

Central Kalahari Game Reserve - Capture Africa Private Mobile

5 meerkat rating

Capture Africa provides little luxuries to exceed your expectations while glamping in the Central Kalahari. En suite Meru tents are set up in the middle of nowhere with comfy beds and creative touches from your own private library to bedside lamps made from kudu horns. Top off the experience with expert guiding, fantastic food and vast horizons where you’re unlikely to see another soul.

Zambezi National Park - Mpala Jena

5 meerkat rating

Mpala Jena (‘white impala’) is the “love child” of world-renowned documentary makers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. The interiors are best described as Arabia-meets-Africa with unexpected touches like weathered antique doors. This camp gives you the best of both worlds: game viewing in the park and proximity to the Falls.

Hwange National Park - Linkwasha

5 meerkat rating

Linkwasha lies within a private concession in the south-eastern corner of Hwange National Park, overlooking not only a busy waterhole but also the Ngamo Plains. This camp is a great ‘all-rounder’ with a little something for everyone: excellent game viewing, cultural experiences, a sleep-out, a hide, a swimming pool and even an Olympus camera hub to boost your wildlife shots.

Mana Pools National Park - Little Ruckomechi

5 meerkat rating

Mana Pools offers another dimension to your safari – the chance to get out onto the Zambezi River for canoeing, catch-and-release fishing and those all-important sunset cruises! Little Ruckomechi’s explorer-style ambiance is made even more idyllic by its views over the water to the hills of neighbouring Zambia.

South Luangwa National Park - Puku Ridge

5 meerkat rating

Puku Ridge is close to, yet far enough away from, the game rich Mfuwe area. Looking out over the floodplain to a waterhole and the seasonal Luangwa River, the camp provides a front row seat to nature’s theatre. Each luxury suite offers a fully open (or closed and air conditioned) room, star bed, plunge pool and…. just about anything you could imagine you could ever want! If you can tear yourself away from the camp, enjoy incredible guided walks rewarding game drives with highly knowledgeable guides.

Thorny Bush Game Reserve - Royal Malewane

6 meerkat rating

Its setting in the private Thornybush Game Reserve gives Royal Malewane not only exclusivity but also access to superb Big 5 sightings. Its safari style is all about romance, luxury and sophistication: the interiors are eclectic mixes of antiques, pops of colour and unusual art, far removed from the usual ‘bush camp’ look.
