COVID-19 – as the world is gripped by the covid-19 pandemic our first thoughts go out to all those who have been touched by the virus, and especially to those who have lost loved ones. We fully support the efforts being made around the world to combat the virus, and at the same time we are painfully aware of the need for tourism to return to Africa. Worldwide lockdown measures are highlighting the difficulties faced by both human and wildlife populations in Africa. As a company specialising in wildlife tourism we are acutely aware that with no tourists there is a rise in poaching of Africa’s iconic animals and the sooner tourism can restart the sooner protection for the wildlife will strengthen once more. There is a delicate balance between irresponsibly promoting tourism to return too quickly and waiting so long that the conservation infrastructure collapses.

At this stage, although some countries are opening their borders to travel, we are not taking any bookings for new travel before 01 September 2020 and encouraging our clients to consider 2021 rather. For clients already booked to travel in July & August 2020 we are monitoring the situation closely and making the necessary arrangements for deferral or refunds.

For all future bookings for the remainder of 2020 we will discuss with our clients on a case by case basis based on the latest information we have from our in-country partners and only suggest bookings where we are confident that it is safe to do so.

May’s Featured Property

Sanctuary Baines Bedroom

Following a severe drought in Botswana in 2019 it looks like 2020 is going to be a far wetter year, with excellent rains having fallen in Angola. These rains then flow south into the incredible Okavango Delta, one of the world’s largest inland deltas, here the water spans out into the surrounding arid Kalahari, making it a magnet for animals from hundreds of kilometres around. In this watery paradise you find Sanctuary Baines Camp. This intimate camp with only 6 rooms offers every creature comfort including star baths and sky beds on your private deck overlooking the Okavango Delta. The camp offers a wide variety of safari activities including 4×4 game drives, guided walks, helicopter excursions, living with elephants experience, motorised boat safaris and mokoro safaris. Make sure to add Sanctuary Baines to your bucket list!

May’s Featured Activity

Sanctuary Baines Mokoro

The annual flooding of the Okavango Delta create one of the world’s greatest wildlife destinations, and there is no better way to explore this watery wonderland than on a traditional mokoro. This is a Batswana dugout canoe skippered by your guide who propels the canoe through the water with a pole. The lack of any engine means makes this the perfect way to explore the tranquil waterways. No noise means you can hear every sound and just let yourself be fully immersed into this unique landscape. The mokoros glide silently through channels created by hippos and peppered with waterlilies. Although you are unlikely to see the volumes of animals you will while on a 4×4 safari the experience is just so special, that for many it is the highlight of a safari in Botswana.

It sounds cliche but “Safari In Style” is just what the doctor ordered. They were incredibly thoughtful and proactive, asking lots (lots!) of questions in advance in order to understand my goals, expectations, budget and priorities. Their recommendation was, simply, perfect. They were attentive in organizing the safari, helped coordinate my travel, checked in in the days before I left, and made sure when I got home it was all I’d wanted. Disconnected from the modern world, surrounded by subtle luxury and understated service, excellent food and drink, and an opportunity to be out in the wild with intelligent, hospitable guides: Safari In Style delivered on every front. As I write this, I’m motivated to drop them an email and do it all over again this July! Thanks, guys!!

Warwick organised a wonderful trip to Namibia for us in 2016. This was our first trip to Namibia and marked both a Big Birthday and 30th Anniversary. Warwick could not have been more helpful or knowledgeable about the area, accommodation and different options available to us. The trip was professionally customised to our special interests in wildlife, whilst still giving us a really good overview of the country – and met our needs perfectly. Warwick is a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend Safari in Style.

Safari in Style is an excellent experience, start to finish. The staff is knowledgeable and courteous, and attention to detail every step of the way is unparallelled. The words “elegance” and “ease” come to mind. For the trip of a lifetime and enviable photos, I enthusiastically recommend this company.
