Selati Camp | Sabi Sabi | Wild Eye6

Places We Love: Selati Camp | Sabi Sabi Game Reserve | South Africa

Sabi Sabi Selati Camp lies deep within the African bushveld. Selati Camp is nestled in South Africa’s famous Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. This beautiful camp was build and styled in a way that remains very colonial which will take you back to the days where safari had started. Vintage, true, raw yet luxurious Africa. Overlooking looking the Msuthlu riverbed, your eyes will be fixed on an incredible view of…

Green Season Safaris

Changing the way you see Green Season Safaris

I've just returned from a two week long safari through the Southern regions of Tanzania as we explored the Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve (now Nyerere National Park). This safari was scheduled at this time of the year specifically to make the most of the green season and provide a sharp contrast to the dry season safari experience that so many guests are familiar with. East Africa has…

Kaingo is designed simply, to make you feel at home in the bush and to offer you a chance to get close on safari the Shenton family way. Kaingo Camp means Leopard in the local Nyanja language, which is fitting as our camp has a long history with these…

Places We Love: Beho Beho Safari Camp | Selous Game Reserve | Tanzania

Beho Beho was the first camp to be sited in The Selous Game Reserve, not on the banks, or the flood plains of the mighty Rufiji River, but in the cooler highlands so as to enjoy the 'cooling breezes' from which its name derives. Always designated as a 'private camp' it has fiercely protected its individuality and privileged location as one of the most 'magical' places it is possible to…

Places We Love: Chitabe Camp | Okavanago Delta | Botswana

Situated on a beautiful old tree-island in a prime wilderness locale in the south-east of the Okavango Delta, Chitabe Camp is built on raised decks to provide superb views across an expansive floodplain. Thanks to its mosaic of habitats, a plethora of plains game is seen on day and night drives as well as guided walks. Chitabe Camp is such a firm favourite of mine that it is the very…

Hwange National Park

Today is the start of part two of this privately guided safari. My guest and I loved the experience in South Luangwa but now we are making our way to a reserve that is wild, remote, tough to get to and authentic in every way, Hwange National Park. This incredible place offers its visitor an opportunity to see a real & raw Africa as wildlife still roam free, not prohibited by…
