Southern Tanzania

Most of us are guilty for connecting with our devices and not nearly enough with ourselves and each other. Go where the crowds aren’t – for a deeper, more meaningful connection with nature and one’s self. It feels liberating, fresh and just so endlessly satisfying and rewarding.

Selous -Nyerere Game Reserve, Tanzania

Bigger than the size of Switzerland and Africas largest game reserve, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is uninhabited by man, roaming with herds of elephants and offering safaris in absolute wild and unspoiled bush. One of its many highlights, the Rufiji River is the lifeblood of the Reserve where large concentrations of wildlife gather to quench their thirst during the dry season. This bush veld is authentic and untouched. Only able to be reached by bush plane, explore the area by vehicle, walking, fly camping (stay in a simple tent in the wilderness), or boating its rivers and lakes. This is the heart of Africa, away from it all…..

Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert, Namibia

Namibias ethereal Desert is the perfect place to disconnect from the bustling crowds and re-connect peacefully and harmoniously with the natural world – and indeed yourself. Lose yourself in mother nature’s master piece. Like a real-life Renoir painting unfolding right before your eyes, the every-shifting colors of the Namib are spellbinding. Namibia is known for its wide open spaces of incredible beautiful, stark scenery. Climb some of the world’s highest dunes, float quietly in a hot-air balloon as the sun kisses the horizon. Gaze up at a gazillion stars that feel close enough to touch from your starbed and most of all, enjoy the indescribable and powerful silence.

Mnemba Island, Zanzibar

Best described as a barefoot beach paradise, Mnemba Island is a small private island on the warm, tropical shores of the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar. Walk the entire island dotted by only 12 rustic beachside bandas, in just 20 minutes. Even during Zanzibar’s peak travel season, this “literally” heart-shaped island nirvana is one of the most romantic, relaxing and carefree escapes one can imagine. Spot dolphins, watch endangered green sea turtles hatch, dive the captivating Mnemba Atoll, snorkel the turquois waters and toast the sunset aboard a traditional dhow sailing vessel.

Okavango Delta, Botswana

The Okavango Delta is the ultimate low volume, low impact and high on wildlife sensation escape from reality. Achingly beautiful and pristine, it is a breathtaking natural wonder, an enchanting maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown island teeming with a density and diversity of wildlife unmatched of. When choosing a small safari lodge in a private concession you will likely not see another vehicle during your safaris. One of the best and most peaceful way to experience the Delta is by mokoro, a dugout canoe, as you gently glide past dainty waterlilies, colorful reed frogs,and other curious creatures with the haunting cries of the fish eagle in the distance.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

Referred to as the “Pearl of Africa”, visiting Uganda, being one of the most beautiful countries on the African continent is like visiting the Garden of Eden. And Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is the jewel in the crown. It isn’t called Impenetrable Forest for no reason! It’s one of Africa’s most ancient habitat and this antiquity has produced an incredible diversity of flora and fauna, even by normal rainforest standards. The National Park is home to approximately 380 endangered mountain gorillas which are followed by protective rangers from sunrise to sunset giving you a leg up on finding them during your gorilla trek.

Tucked into the remote south-west of Uganda, exploring Bwindi is an adventure into itself that will define your outlook on your life back home.

After all, it’s the experiences in life that ultimately define us.
