Dear Traveller,

bucket list

  1. a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.

Each new year presents a fresh opportunity to explore your bucket list. We have combined a list of our personal favourites and would like to share them with you. 

All of these can easily be included in your African safari itinerary. 

Wishing you and your family an adventure filled 2019.

Yours in travel,

1. Spend a night under the stars on Safari

A luxurious treehouse beneath a canopy of stars is the ultimate bush suite built on stilts. This is an unique safari experience – one where you can feel immersed in the magic of romance in Africa. A starbed experience will be an unforgettable anniversary surprise or, for the wildlife adventurer wanting to disconnect form the day to day digital jungle.

2. Devil’s Pool in Zambia

Enjoy an exhilarating swim to the edge of the majestic Victoria Falls. The Devil’s Pool is usually open between mid August and mid January – depending on Zambezi water levels. The view from the edge is totally mesmerizing as you feel the force of the Zambezi flowing past you and crashing down over the precipice.

3. Gorilla Trekking in Uganda or Rwanda

Truly a once in a lifetime experience. The Mountain Gorilla is the world’s most endangered great ape and only found in protected forests in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. To see Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat is every safari lover’s dream and a true bucket list experience. 

Coming face to face with a gorilla is an exhilarating feeling that is hard to describe.

Tip: Gorilla permits are very popular and not many permits are available and are sold out far in advance, especially in high season (June to September as well as from December up to February.). Pre-booked permits are essential. We recommend making arrangements to obtain permits long before your travel date. Let us know how we can assist. Permits in Uganda cost $600 and in Rwanda $1500. 
Have a chat with one of our African safari to assist with arrangements.

4. Float on a Mokoro in Botswana

The mokoro is a traditional canoe-like vessel commonly used as a mode of transport in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. To go on a mokoro safari is very popular activity among travellers seeking the opportunity to fully experience the sound and sights of nature without running the risk of scaring wildlife off with a motor. A mokoro experience is about 2 – 3 hours long and will end with sundowners on land admiring the beautiful African sunset. Guides are highly knowledgeable about the surroundings. Perfect experience for keen photographers. 

5. Luxury Mobile Camping Safari in Botswana

Comfortable mobile camping allowing to get even closer to the African wilderness. The entire journey will be hosted by an experienced guide offering an engaging experience throughout the ‘glamping’ adventure. 

6. Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti in Tanzania

Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Serengeti National Park in a hot air balloon. Rise at dawn and float in whichever direction the wind steers you appreciating the magnificent panorama at bird’s eye-view over the Serengeti. End off with an incredible ‘champagne’ breakfast in the bush.

7. Giving Back – Cultural Tour in South Africa
