Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve – 2 Nights / 3 Days
This is the ideal safari experience for guests who, with limited time, want to see the best of what South African wildlife has to offer. The Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve is world renowned for producing some of the best Big 5 game viewing across all of Africa, and is particularly famous for its leopard sightings. Home to some of our favourite private game lodges, your arrival by private charter will ensure that you have enough time to enjoy a full dusk safari on day one. The luxury of private charter travel will also allow you to maximise your time on the morning of day three, before returning to Johannesburg.
Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve – 3 Nights / More
Disconnect from the outside world, and become immersed in one of Africa’s greatest wildlife offerings. An extended stay at one of our preferred lodges within the Sabi Sands affords guests the opportunity to drink in the comforts of five star accommodation, whilst enjoying the thrill of being on safari. This experience is a must for wildlife photography enthusiasts, where years of strict conservation practices have created one of the most intimate game viewing environments across the globe. No matter how many nights you spend in this part of the world, you will always want more, such is the habit of the Sabi Sands in producing memorable moments each day.
The Okavango Delta – 3 Nights / 4 Days
Experience the magic of the Okavango Delta. After a two hour flight from Johannesburg we will land in Maun, the airport hub to many of Botswana’s world renowned lodges. A short flight from here will see you arrive in the Delta. Undoubtedly one of Africa’s most fascinating safari destinations, this vast savanna transforms into a lush oasis of shallow river systems during the seasonal floods, supporting a massive concentration of wildlife. Guided water safaris are a sought after experience where you can navigate through elephants, hippos and crocodiles in your dugout canoe (Mokoro). The dry land safaris, conducted in typical open game viewing vehicles, are famous for providing unique sightings of lion, leopard, large herds of buffalo, wild dogs and some of the marsh dwelling antelope like lechwe and sitatunga. This part of Africa will captivate your soul, and is a must for anyone looking for an unforgettable African memory.
Botswana & Zimbabwe – 4 Nights / 5 Days
A popular choice amongst travelers to the Okavango Delta is to split their time between two camps, one land based and the other water based. The flexibility that Memories of Africa affords you with private chartered travel, means that this option can be easily accommodated. The other very attractive option is to jump across to neighboring country Zimbabwe, home to the breathtaking spectacle that is Victoria Falls. This would entail a 30 minute flight into Kasane to clear customs, before taking off for a short flight along the Zambezi river towards Victoria Falls International Airport. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, Victoria Falls provides a fascinating finale to your African memory.
