Mana Pools Zimbabwe

From the Okavango Delta we flew Northwest to Kariba airport on the northwest point of Lake Kariba.  I don’t think the flight could have been any more beautiful, first we started out over the Okavango Delta that is fill with wildlife including elephants, zebra, water buck, hippos and tons of birds.  From there we joined up on the southern point of Lake Kariba and flew...

Air Safari Continues

I’ve been without internet for almost a week now and I’ll be the first to say it feels great.  We are so tuned into this world of instant information and continuous connectivity which becomes normal life.  When you unplug from this constant stream of information you are left to look beyond 12 inches in front of your face, you are forced to look at the...

Landing On A Dirt Road In Namibia

Sometimes when flying in Africa or any far flung place you have to make what’s available work.  What’s even more incredible is that the people are always willing to help you do what you need to do.  Last year we visited a camp in Namibia that is only 7 miles from the international airport, unfortunately the drive is over an hour and it’s on a...

Rhinos and More Epic Flying

The last camp on the air safari was next to Etosha National Park in Namibia.  The camp was a very nice tented camp in a private reserve that was packed with animals.  I had one of the most extraordinary animal sightings of my life, I saw up close and personal a huge white rhino and her beautiful calf.  We were all sitting at the central...

Air Safari Continues to Mahale

The next stop on the 2015 Air Safari was Mahale National Park situated beautifully on Lake Tanganyika.  The flight from the Serengeti to Mahale was beautiful, we passed over open land and land full of people growing food.  Though I am a big fan of open spaces with no people, I found a unique beauty in the small plot agriculture that was happening across the...

What an incredible first day for the 2015 air safari.  We woke up at the early hour of 5am for what was to be an epic first day.  First, the moon was full over the Chyulu Hills, there was no need for a flashlight walking around at that early hour.  Second, the drive to the airstrip at Campi Ya Kanzi was peaceful with an edge...

Camp Highlight – Campi Ya Kanzi – Kenya

  What can I say about Campi Ya Kanzi that I haven’t already told to anyone within earshot?  It is one of the most incredible, authentic, spiritual, thought provoking, relaxing, exciting, remote, romantic, incredible places I have ever been on this earth.  I am so enamored with Campi Ya Kanzi, I’m moving there in September to become part of the team.  Campi Ya Kanzi has...

Camp Highlight – Mnemba Island – Tanzania

Mnemba Island is another new stop for me and again we will find ourselves in the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean.  Mnemba Island lodge is everything you would expect on the perfect postcard from the perfect tropical paradise.  White sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and scenery backdrops that you have to see to believe.  Mnemba Island has to be where all the best tropical...

Camp Highlight – Mwagusi – Tanzania

Mwagusi camp is by far one of my favorite places.  I am not sure if it’s the location, the people, the camp or a combination thereof, but this place holds a special spot in my heart.  My room last year had a great hammock, which last year I laid in all day, reading a book, watching elephants and monkeys walk up the dry riverbed.  Mwagusi...

Camp Highlight – Vamizi Island – Mozambique

Vamizi Island is one of my most anticipated stops, I don’t know if I’m most looking forward to the destination or the journey.  Vamizi Island in Mozambique, is a very small island just 7 miles long by less than a mile wide.  The flight to this small island is going to be nothing short of stunning, the Indian Ocean is known for it’s stunning clarity...

Camp Highlight – Mvuu Lodge – Malawi

Mvuu Lodge is a new stop for me.  The Mvuu Lodge sits just west of Liwonde National Park, in Southern Malawi.  Here we will have the very unique opportunity to view Rhinos.  Because of a quite low number of predators, Liwonde is one of the only National parks that allow game walks instead of only allowing game drives.  It’s always nice to have the opportunity to...

Camp Highlight – Mana Pools – Zimbabwe

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. Over the millennia the Zambezi has rushed through this valley creating islands,...

Wolwedans is another new camp for me, it sits on the top of an 800 foot plus tall sand dune, just South of Sossusvlei.   Wolwedans is located in the Namib Rand Nature Reserve which is 202,00 hectares and shares 100 km border with Namib-Naukluft National Park to the west.  Wolwedans promises to be a unique stop on our Africa Flying Safari Adventure, one that is sure to please even...
