Best of Botswana & Victoria Falls Trip Report

Best of Botswana & Victoria Falls Wildlife Safari – Trip Report Trip report compiled by Tour Leader, André Bernon The wildlife haven that is Botswana definitely delivered on this mobile safari tour. We started in Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. A memorable charter flight over the Delta gave us fantastic aerial views of this oasis, with the great expanse thereof only being really appreciated from the air. We visited Moremi, Khwai and the Chobe Parks and had many […]

AFRICAN WILD DOGS OF BOTSWANA

One of the highlights of our upcoming Botswana Wildlife Tour will be the opportunity to find and spend time with the endangered African Wild Dog. Wild Dogs, aka Hunting Dogs or Painted Wolves, are amongst the rarest of the large carnivores in Africa. While rare and elusive, once found, they offer arguably some of the most exciting wildlife watching experiences. They are highly social, largely diurnal and very active! Until recently, African Wild Dogs ranged widely through much of Africa. […]

Rwanda and her “Gentle Giants” by Nelis Wolmarans

At only 10,170 miles2, Rwanda is the forth-smallest country on the African continent, yet she is home to one of the world’s most impressive living treasures, the Mountain Gorillas of the Virunga. Mountain Gorillas were first discovered in 1902 by Capt. Oscar von Beringe, hence their scientific name Gorilla beringei beringei. Unfortunately, 43 Mountain Gorillas were captured and killed in the twenty years that followed, all in the name in scientific research. In 1921 a young naturalist, Carl Ackley came […]

A September afternoon at Nebrownii Waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia by Nelis Wolmarans

One of Africa’s great reserves is the incredible Etosha National Park in northern Namibia. This vast, arid wilderness of 22,750 square kilometers is centered around the seemingly endless Etosha Pan, a saline depression that irregularly fills with rainwater and at these times attracts millions of flamingoes and other waterbirds (as is the current situation.) Several natural and artificial waterholes scattered through the park quench the thirst of an incredibly varied and large population of grazers and predators. Earlier this month […]

The Geladas of Ethiopia by Adam Riley

(This blog first appeared on focusingonwildlife.com) Geladas are the sole survivors of a once abundant branch of primates that historically foraged across the grasslands of Africa, the Mediterranean and India. These relics of times gone by now cling to a precarious existence on the sheer cliffs of Ethiopia’s mountains, from which each morning they materialize, to forage on nearby moorlands, before disappearing down the precipices in the evening. Male Gelada in his prime For those who have heard of these […]

We were very lucky to have such knowledgeable guides, Shadow had the ability to place us in the right spot at the right time when other guides were still thinking about it. It was nice just to sit and observe the interactions.
Great tour, the mix of participants also worked well. Many eyes help spot things which might otherwise be missed (back seats are higher and sometimes you just catch a glimpse that the front seat people miss).
