Flying from the Okavango to Mana Pools in Zimbabwe will be simply fascinating. Incredible wilderness and plentiful wildlife. We will fly over the Zambezi and Lake Kariba. You cannot imagine their infinite beauty. The mighty Zambezi River flows from Lake Kariba through the Lower Zambezi Valley, a huge rift in the earth’s crust.

Camp Highlight – Serra Cafema – Namibia

Serra Cafema camp is by far one of the best camps of the entire trip.  Serra Cafema is a definite study in contrasts, on one side of camp is the driest desert I’ve ever been in and the other side of camp is the Kunene River, a bastion to many aquatic lifeforms both docile and quite vicious.  It was at this camp last year that I...
