1 Luxury Mobile Safari in Turkana & Richard’s Camp
Luxury mobile safaris have long been known as one of the top ways to see Africa – with a luxury mobile safari you can get off the beaten track and set up anywhere, we often use private helicopters or planes to get you into the most remote areas possible. Here you will see abundant game, remote and wild areas, nomadic tribes and much more. The vastness of the areas surrounding Lake Turkana are quite awe inspiring and all of this with a private guide and extremely comfortable private mobile camp. We then recommend being flown down to the Masai Mara, which is the top rated are if you want to see big cats. Now this area can become a little busy which is why we use Richard’s Camp – thanks to the location of this quirky and beautiful camp you will be lucky enough to have some of the best game viewing without another soul around – what heaven!
2 Molori Safari Lodge & San Camp
Now this really is what you call a top rated luxury safari – these two exclusive and private safari properties are two of the best in the whole of Africa and you can easily combine the two. Molori is so luxurious you literally won’t know what to do with yourself. The suites all have lovely views of Madikwe, which is positively pumping with game. Everything is modern, comfy and slick and you will be treated to gourmet food and unbelievable service. This lodge has won awards for design and it’s owners pioneered the now exceptionally successful anti poaching program in this stunning area – what more could you want. Well perhaps you might want to include a desert camp in your twin centre top rated luxury safari, and when it comes to desert camps it doesn’t get any better than San Camp. After a short 1 ½ hour game drive across the border into Botswana from Molori, you will catch a short flight to Maun before being assisted onto your light aircraft into the remote area of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans – one of the most starkly beautiful areas in all of Africa. San Camp is absolutely magical, as one of, if not THE top rated luxury safari camp in Africa you will be ending your safari on a high. Here you will stay in white Moroccan tents which are spread out romantically across the pans. Every room is exquisitely furnished with antique campaign furniture and your stay here will include walking with the ancient San bushmen, meeting the meerkats and quad biking across the pans. Dinners out on the pans with the milky way twinkling above you are memorable to say the least. When you’re at San Camp everything in the world seems right.
3 Liuwa Plains & Shiwa N’gandu
So, Zambia, slowly making it’s way up the ladder of top rated safari destinations. Here the vast open spaces and abundant game cannot fail to wow you. Liuwa Plains is probably the best place in all of Africa to see wild dog, cheetah and hyena hunt – hyena are the apex predator here which makes for exciting game viewing, as well as the fact you have the entire place to yourself with only Norman Carr (another top rated walking operator) operating safaris here. You will see the quintessential wide open plains that we all dream about and even a small wildebeest migration if you go at the right time of year. Follow this with a private charter flight up to the remote North and Shiwa N’gandu – this house has more history than many houses in the UK and it’s wonderful views, location and mystique is irresistible. Built by an English aristocrat for the love of his life days here are reminiscent of a by gone age, and are completely and utterly enchanting.
