Tourism to Africa has been very heavily hit by the imposition of lockdowns around the world in 2020, with a massive loss of jobs across the continent. We are hoping that 2021 will bring the slow lifting of lockdowns so that we can all start travelling again and once again share the beauty and excitement that is Africa with you. Here are some of the exciting safaris that we have planned for you in the year ahead.
JULY AND AUGUST
We’ll be running two very exciting bespoke safaris for private groups, one led by Lex to Botswana, where we visit the best wildlife areas in the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti and the other, led by Chris, which will be three weeks of great diversity and intense game-viewing in the Sabi Sand and Timbavati Game Reserves, the beautiful and wild Pafuri region of the northern Kruger National Park and ending in the Mashatu Game Reserve in southern Botswana.
In August, Lex will lead an amazingly diverse 21-day bespoke safari for private guests which encompasses some of the most incredible wildlife areas of northern and western Tanzania including the wildebeest migration in the northern Serengeti, the chimpanzees of Mahale Mountains National Park on Lake Tanganyika as well as experiencing honey-hunting with the Hadzabe people near Lake Eyasi.
Please CONTACT US to avoid missing out on these once-in-a-life safaris.
Also in August, Chris will be busy with private safaris to the Timbavati, Sabi Sand, Manyeleti and Karongwe Game Reserves.
Another bespoke safari, led by Lex, takes a private group of photographers on a serious photographic safari looking to get great wildlife photos at the famous photographic hides of Zimanga in South Africa, and Mashatu Tented Camp in Botswana and the great big cat destination of the northern Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
Chris will be leading two more private bespoke trips designed by us: one to Namibia and Botswana and the other to Botswana and the Timbavati in South Africa.
In November, Lex will be leading two more journeys for Zegrahm Expeditions: one to Ethiopia and the other to see two of the lesser known African mammal migrations in Zambia.
So, we have a very exciting year of lifetime experiences ahead of us. We are truly looking forward to getting our safari gear, sun hats and sunblock back on so that we can head out there and share this amazingly diverse continent with you all. Hopefully this pandemic will soon be a thing of the past.
Please by all means make contact with us if you’d like to share in these exciting journeys with us. We look forward to helping you make your dream safaris come together.
Best, Lex, Chris and Kim
