Unforgettable Experiences for

Camp Fire

Star Gazers

Under the stars

Since the dawn of time fire has drawn humankind together. With no prompting whatsoever people will gather around fires to mull over the happenings of the day, share stories and set the world to rights long into the night.

By their very nature our holidays cater perfectly for campfire stargazers. From the swag sleepouts of Australia and luxurious lodges of Africa, to the gaucho estancias of South America and the elegant desert camps of India, almost all will use fire as a focal point. And as the embers die down and the stars emerge, so the constellations become clearly visible against some of the darkest skies in the world.

Those in the wilderness will always be drawn to the crackle and flicker of the flame, and a gin and tonic by the fire is a rite of passage for any safari goer!

Itineraries & set departures

Great Walk of Africa with Tropical Ice

Set Departure | Kenya Mobile Hiking Safari
This is Africa’s definitive walking safari. Hiking for several days along two of the most beautiful rivers on the continent, which are the home to the biggest elephant herds in Africa, it’s no wonder this trip has been described as ‘the greatest African bush experience on the continent’.

Maasai Mara with Safaris Unlimited – 6 & 8 Night Options

Set Departure | Horseriding safari Kenya
Riding amongst Africa’s animals is an active, exhilarating and adrenalin fuelled safari. The six or eight night riding safari with Gordie and Felicia Church of Safaris Unlimited traverses the greater Mara Conservancies (adjacent to the Masai Mara), on a mobile safari that is full of punch and all class. Experiencing this spectacular unfenced and expansive wilderness eco-system on the back of a horse is a journey like no other.

Luangwa Chikoko Trails

Walking Safari | On foot in Zambia
Unfolding in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, a Chikoko Trails safari is a unique walking experience in one of the richest wildlife areas in the world. Hiking expeditions take you between two camps, accessible only by foot, following well-worn elephant and hippo trails. With pulses racing you’ll discover the inner workings of the African bush in a way you could never imagine from a vehicle.

Botswana’s Rivers, Desert & Delta

Itinerary Inspiration | Pristine Wilderness Contrasts
The very best of Botswana is encapsulated on this safari. As with all the wilderness areas you will immerse yourself in, your accommodation will be exclusive and exceptional. Diversity abounds with the rich variety of wildlife and birdlife, a multitude of landscapes and ways to explore them, along with the opportunity to spend time with the San people, the 'Bushmen of the Kalahari', making this one of the most rewarding safaris to Africa one could ask for.

Namibia Under Canvas

Set Departure | Back to Nature Hosted Safari
Whilst appealing to the more adventurous traveller and those seeking a more in-depth Namibia experience, this safari has been designed to offer great value. A fully on-the-road adventure, you will be hosted by one of Namibia's most reputable naturalist guides on a “back to nature” and experientially focused safari that does not compromise on comfort, exclusivity and flexibility.

ABC of Zimbabwe with African Bush Camps

Itinerary Inspiration | From Hwange to Mana Pools
This is an adventure enthusiast’s paradise. Starting in Victoria Fall, Zimbabwe’s adventure capital, you will then take to the air in a light aircraft and fly to Hwange National Park, and enjoy game drives in search of huge herds of elephant and the predators that follow them. Your next stop is Mana Pools in the countries north, on the banks of the might Zambezi River, followed by the perfect end to any safari, that is a visit to Lake Kariba, where spectacular views and calming cruises on the lake can be enjoyed.
