How to help protecting rhinos


The rhino is a wonderful animal, roaming the earth already for a very long time, but the numbers are dropping due to poaching and the huge amounts paid for it’s horn. They are endangered and without help they would be gone soon.

If you want to help protecting the rhino you can do that due to several projects and Caroline Rees’ project is one of them.

Create the best sundowner experience on African safari


There are many highlights on African safaris, but there is one all safari guests seem to agree on that it is one of the best, the sundowner. This moment after a day in the bush when the sun settles for the night and the sounds of the bush become more mysterious, all seems to slow down and reflect on the events of the day and the safari guests do the same, with a drink in their hand, watching the sun gently leaving the bush for the night.

The have the best sundowner experience choose a spot where you look out over the landscape or a clearing in the bush where you can see the sun set behind a tree. There needs to be something the sun can shine on like a tree or clouds to have the best photographic sunset. And be quick. The African sunset does not last long; it is over in a moment.

Get the best waterborne African safari experience


There is no better place for waterborne safari activities than the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The magnificent delta is already a fantastic destination and probably light wise the best African safari destination for photography lovers, but it adds to that the water activities on the crystal clear channels that offer plenty of new perspective into wildlife and landscapes.

Experience a mokoro (dugout canoe) ride or explore the waterways by electro motorboat and discover a colorful world with the lechwe antelopes, adapted to the water rich region, elephants wading through the channels or hippos in their favorite environment.

Enjoy the very different view these activities offer and get the most amazing photographs.

Want to ride elephant on African safari?


The African elephant is a magnificent animal and the favorite of many African safari guests. However it is not as easy to tame as the Asian elephant and a walk or ride on the elephant is a very special experience.

There are several elephant sanctuaries in South Africa where visitors can learn during the daily scheduled shows about the animals and can experience activities with them.

Even better are the elephant walks and rides in the bush in Botswana and along the Zambezi in Zambia. Baines’ Camp and Abu Camp in the Okavango Delta in Botswana offer these kind of elephant activities and being with the animals in their natural environment is an incredible experience. The elephant ride along and through the Zambezi River in Zambia can be booked with the accommodations at the Victoria Falls. The mighty elephant and the mighty Zambezi are a good combination.
