Safaris

EQUIPMENT SUPPLIED

Four man canvas dome tents are used (3 metres x 3 metres x 2.25 metres high), sleeping two people each or 3 in case of a couple and a child. We also have 4 man dome tents for use for single travellers. Good camp stretchers if requested, bedrolls with mattresses, pillow, sleeping bag, small table and a towel are supplied, and we do all the work for you. A shower is available with hot, warm or cold water, and a toilet is set up for each six people. We also supply chairs and tables for general dining and carry large quantities of food, both dry and fresh. The Landcruisers are fitted with a 40 litre deep freeze, which enables us to keep perishables frozen for days at a time, and in addition to this we carry several cold boxes. We can charge digital equipment as we have inverters that work off 12v.

Clients are advised to bring their own clothing, soap, toiletries, sunscreen, binoculars, camera with zoom lens, film if necessary and a hat. If clients bring a video camera it is suggested that they also bring a 12 volt charger so batteries can be charged by the Landcruiser.

FOOD & DRINKS

All meals are prepared and supplied by us. Food is simple, wholesome and tasty. Generally the day starts with toast, muesli, yoghurt, tea and coffee, although if a long drive is in the offing a full English breakfast complete with Bacon, egg and sausage may be served. Depending on the itinerary lunch is usually eaten along the way or at the camp site, and consists of cold meats, salad, tuna, crispbread, wholemeal rolls, cheese etc. Simple snacks such as potato chips, fresh popcorn and nuts are served with drinks in the evening. Dinner is generally something like a stew, pasta or rice dish (meat or chicken) with fresh salad and vegetables. Vegetarians are catered for on request.

A reasonable quantity of juices, soft drinks, beer and local wines are supplied. Drinking water is of course unlimited. Local spirits can be requested prior to the trip and will be catered for wherever possible.

AGE RESTRICTIONS

Minimum age is 12 years unless by prior arrangement or on a private Safari. Clients must have an adventurous spirit, as often at night the sounds of lion and hyaena can be heard close at hand, although you are always safe while inside your tent. No maximum age has been set, but reasonable health and fitness is essential. It must be noted that September, October and November can be very hot (up to 40C) and humid.

ROUTINE

Clients are normally met in Maun, Kasane or transferred from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or Livingstone in Zambia and driven to the first place on their itinerary. We normally drive to our camping spot first, where the vehicle(s) is unloaded of camping equipment and left with the camp staff to erect. We then game drive for the rest of the afternoon, before returning to our camp generally just after sunset, for snacks and sundowners around the camp fire.

In the morning, clients are woken at first light, and served with tea, coffee, muesli and toast, before departing on the early morning game drive. Flexibility is the key to be able to take advantage of game viewing possibilities it is essential to be able to adapt. Therefore a cold lunch is generally carried on the vehicle and eaten at a waterhole, along the road or back at camp as the case may be. If we have returned to the camp for lunch, there is usually a siesta/rest period, followed by an afternoon game drive, returning to camp after sunset for snacks and sundowners.
