Southern Africa has some of the best safaris and luxury lodges. So if you want a safari go to Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. In Zambia authorities have expressed optimism that the country will be able to capture the targeted 1 million tourists arrivals.
Now considered yellow fever free, Zambia is now easily accessible for tourists.There are many ways to experience this beautiful country. The first is a walking safari at the famed Norman Carr Lodge (www.normancarrsafaris.com). A walking safari gives a new perspective from the traditional jeep safari. Their main lodge, Kapani, is a luxury facility accommodating up to twenty guests.
The Relais and Chateaux lodge, the first in the country and the Royal Chundu (www.royalchundu.com) was voted Zambia’s Leading Safari Lodge in 2015 for the fifth year running. Royal Chundu is located along the banks of the Zambezi River, between Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park. It offers the perfect balance of adventure, African ambience and nature. There are two separate types of accommodations: the Island Lodge and River Lodge. These consists of four (4) very private and secluded villas with outdoor tubs. The River Lodge is comprised of 10 riverfront suites, features large double showers, an infinity pool and outdoor dining deck.
November is the start of Botswana’s green season. Uncharted Africa (www.unchartedafrica.com) is a place to see one of the greatest shows on earth. Not only does the rain transform the barren landscape into a shade of startling green, but nowhere in Botswana do you see a more striking migration than the Kalahari as herds of wildebeest and zebra make their way onto the Makgadikgadi grasslands.
Jack’s Camp is the best place to experience the magic of Botswana in bloom. All tents of Jack’s Camp are the perfect ‘migration station’ with open views of the expansive Makgadikgadi and nearby watering hole. Avoiding the peak tourist season gives you discounted rates, avoidance of crowds and guarantees front row seats to the migration of zebra and wildebeest, the second biggest in Africa and the last remaining in southern Africa.
The Linkwasha Camp (www.wilderness-safaris.com) reopened this past year. The camp features eight classic African tents situated in the south-eastern private Linkwasha Concession in the Hwange National Park, home to one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. The camp also has the best access to Ngamo Plains. It offers some of the most impressive game viewing in southern Africa. These include lions, elephant and cheetah. The tents at Linkwasha offer a mix of traditional and contemporary design along with the original spirit and essence of a safari.
