This itinerary encompasses Africa’s Ultimate Rainforest Safari.
This is a rainforest discovery like no other – from gorillas and forest elephants to nocturnal bongos and Ba’aka (an indigenous forest-dwelling hunter-gatherer community).
Explore the magnitude and sheer beauty of the Congo Basin in safety with 3 exceptional camps and an eco-lodge in 4 distinct forest locations. Finally, you’ll end your stay with the ultimate beach tranquility on the island of Príncipe- a shelter between tropical forest and a pristine golden beach – a wonderful place to unwind.
This will be an opportunity to venture to the French Congo for a perspective-altering experience – your mind will be blown by the vastness of the Congo Basin. Hop between rainforests, savannas, rivers, mineral-rich bais, and swamps. Undertake epic adventures from gorilla-trekking, game drives, boating, kayaking, forest walking, and wading on the river to discover rare and endangered species.
Your trip also includes adventuring upriver into the Sangha Trinational Protected area to one of the remotest camps in Africa.
This is the ultimate immersion into the immense landscape of rivers, baïs, forests, and savannas of the Congo Basin and the most in-depth discovery of Odzala and Sangha.
Skeleton Coast, situated on Namibia’s remote western coastline, is named after the many ships that sank here over the last few centuries. Because the roads are constantly chopping, changing, and shifting – these areas are primarily accessible by air.
Namibia is twice the size of the state of California. It has one of the lowest human population densities on earth and is a beautiful place where the sand dunes meet the sea.
If you value your own privacy and want to get away from the hustle and bustle, this itinerary is for you.
A few of the highlights of this trip include a river cruising on the Kunene – located on the border of Namibia and Angola and has a large population of Nile crocodiles. In addition, you’ll visit the Upupa Falls – a series of large waterfalls created by the Kunene River. With its notorious ghostly shipwrecks and ghost towns, Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is also on the list.
Certain moments in life are hard to describe. Watching a school of dolphins power through the deep blue water beneath your kayak, just a few inches from your fingertips, is one of them. That’s why this trip includes a kayaking experience with dolphins.
Experience the unique possibility to fly over the world’s oldest desert in a hot air balloon. It is a fantastic thrill and exhilarating feeling to watch the Namib Desert from a hot air balloon. You’ll be able to see many desert-adapted species – like elephants, lions, and black rhinos.
This whole itinerary is all about being remote, off the grid, and lingering a little longer, stepping back in time.
Baobabs, woodlands, and pristine wilderness describe remote Tanzania. With this itinerary, you’ll be away from the hustle and bustle—hosted by a legendary walking guide, the camp owner, and his small team. Your days will be a mix of driving and walking, depending on your preference.
The camp is a classic safari experience in the truest sense, with the entire operation regularly relocating to entirely new areas of Ruaha and leaving no trace behind. The experience is like stepping back in time to what safaris were several decades ago.
The friendly and enthusiastic staff will make you feel comfortable, treat you with delicious food – exceeding your expectations even amidst a rustic and isolated wilderness setting.
Discover the diverse wilderness of the area on guided game drives both during the day and at night armed with a spotlight as well as high-tech thermal imaging devices for a chance to see lions on the hunt and a whole host of nocturnal rarities. Walking safaris are a specialty and perhaps the best way to immerse yourself in the bush with guides who have spent decades traversing Africa’s wilds. Using the camp’s powerful telescope to stargaze is a glistening highlight at night.
In Katavi, you’ll find extensive grasslands and enormous numbers of hippos, buffalo, and elephants. Chimp trekking off the shores of Lake Tanganyika is also on the list. In addition, you’ll stay in off-the-grid glamping facilities.
Trekking for chimps is one of the most exciting and wild experiences you can have on foot. The trek can be anywhere from an hour to up to a full day depending on where the chimps are and how fast they are moving. Chimp politics is like a soap opera, and you’ll have a chance to watch the drama unfold right in front of you.
