The breathtaking beauty of Botswana is not limited to the famous Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. For Africa connoisseurs there is also the vast Nxai Pan National Park and Makgadikgadi National Park where endless herds of Zebra kick up the dust during April/May, and watchful predators stalk unsuspecting grazers amidst the waving grasses. Come and visit the completely revamped Leroo La Tau Lodge or the newly built Nxai Pan Lodge and take a step back in time!
The chiefs island area of the Okavango Delta is one of our favourites, the vast floodplain in front of the lodge stretches out towards Chiefs Island and every season offers visitors something exciting. I remember seeing a pack of wild dogs, silent except for the high pitched yips and chirps as they communicated between each other to swiftly bring down a red lechwe antelope.
When you think of Africa and its incredible wildlife you almost inevitably conjure up images of endless plains, scattered with antelope huddling together under the deceptively disinterested gaze of the ‘king of the beasts’. It may then surprise you to learn that Namibia is also home to more than half the world’s population of Cape Fur Seals. A population of approximately 1 million these intelligent and gentle creatures grace the cold Atlantic coastline of this desert dominated country.
Namibia’s Caprivi Strip is often overlooked by visitors due to its remote position in relation to the usual tourist attractions of Sossusvlei, Swakopmund and Etosha. However, it is well worth a look and Mamilli National Park is one of the most beautiful areas offering excellent birding, exciting wildlife and tranquil wilderness campsites.
The Mushara collection is well known for offering excellent quality accommodation located just 8km outside the Von Lindequist gate of Etosha National Park. The new Mushara Bush Camp offers something more; large family chalets and excellent value child rates, dedicated free of charge child minders, a playground and childrens pool and innovative activities to keep the little ones entertained.
