Wildlife In Southern Africa Southern Africa Trip, Enchanted and Delightful Safaris and Luxury Wildlife In Southern Africa Southern Africa is truly a special and culturally diverse nation, with an eclectic mix of wilderness and metropolitan areas, wildlife and nightlife, Old Africa and the New World. My Schedule started with two days of sightseeing in the water front city of Cape Town, the oldest European settled city on the African continent. From our cable car or truck ascension up Table Mountain we walked along tracks with exceptional sea views. Other city sights included Robben Tropical isle where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, the Cape of Good Hope, and a visit to the only colony of penguins in Africa. Forty miles away are Stellenbosh, Franschhoek, and Paarl, surrounded by vineyards, fruit orchards and mountains, and renowned for their thoughtful blend of 18th century Cape Dutch, Georgian, and Victorian architecture. There is a ton of exploring the Cape’s premier estates to do here, tasting wines and delighting in the hospitality of this very unique location. One thing worth tyring is taking a trip on the ultra glamorous Blue train. Gourmet cuisine, great wines, high tea and sumptuous lodgings, integrate with romantic ambiance, remarkable service and stunning scenery, to make this an absolutely magnificent means to take a trip from Cape Town to Pretoria. A fast flight from Johannesburg to Skukuza and then a short drive, and we were finally at our very first game reserve. Mala Mala found in the Sabi Sand Reserve is adjoining to Kruger National Park. Within this private reserve, the privilege and harmony of Africa is ever present. Exceptional game watching in open Land Rovers, dinner around an open camp fire in a reed enclosed “boma”, visits to remote hides and evening dives are all part of the exceptional experience. Our next destination, incredible Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls, Musi Oa Tunya “Smoke that thunders” is among the seven natural wonders of the globe and genuinely a sight worth seeing.

Our lodging for the night was the River Club, situated on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River. The River Club’s ten privilege thatched roof covering bungalows ignore the Zambezi. The spaces are entirely open in the back providing the very best possible views of the river and developing an Old World romantic ambience. Although not a game lodge, the Zambezi National Park is located just throughout the river. Hippos were regularly sighted, and we woke to their sounds in the early morning. On to Botswana. Our safari in Botswana discovered 2 contrasting ecosystems. The Linyanti environment is huge game nation where the majority of the 76,000 plus elephants in Northern Botswana reside, the attraction being the permanent water and mopane forests. Wildlife seen here also consists of buffalo, lion, leopard, hippo, impala wild dog and cheetah. The second area we discovered was the special ecosystem of the Okavango Delta. Right here, as the sands of the Kalahari fulfill the Okavango River, the waters spread out into a maze of meandering channels, forested tropical isles, papyrus thickets and placid lagoons. This green, wet wilderness teams with animal and life. Along with day and night game drives, activities provided in this area are mekoro trips (conventional dugout canoe) along slim canals and led hikes. All our safaris were off the beaten road because this unspoiled wilderness has even more acres of wildlife reserves than roadways to obtain through them. That is why you are more likely to obtain transferred by air as you discover this nations large, finest and most immaculate wildlife environment. In each of our three camps, individual bungalows supplied a room under canvas or thatch, with en suite washrooms in a most traditional safari configuration. Built on raised platforms of wood canvas and stone, each camp, Kings Pool, Chitabe and Joa, blended seamlessly into their lush backgrounds. We were made to feel as if we were experiencing an Africa suspended in time, having a genuine bush experience and yet still mad to feel safe and comfy. Our host during much of our stay in Southern Africa was Wilderness Safaris. Just what I discovered so remarkable about this business was not only do they supply a splendid wilderness experience for their guests, they plainly comprehend and take the obligation to assist safeguard the parks, reserves and wilderness areas around them. They additionally understand the requirement to empower and uplift the communities around their camps in order that the local people can easily derive benefits from wildlife-based travel. To achieve these ends as a business a part of each visitor’s faire is assigned to the” Wilderness Safaris Wildlife Trust”.
