Part 3 Honeymoon Ideas – Safari – (well part three of these) – Southern Africa
Kgalagadi and South Namibia
For a land of contrast then Namibia has to be one of the world’s best destinations. With four deserts, all different, the highest sand dunes in the world and iconic African wildlife such as the desert adapted elephant and rhino, you are spoilt for choice.
We have all seen the Namibia photo of black dead trees in a white salt pan against a giant red dune which is so accessible – take your own photo of this magical setting and then climb the dune. Consider tracking the desert adapted elephants and rhino (and lions and zebra and others) or meeting with the San people or Himba tribe and learning of their unique life styles.
For contrasting wildlife experiences spend time in the Etosha National Park using its giant salt pan as a backdrop to your photos and then head to the lush and green Parks along the rivers of the north in the area known as the Caprivi Strip.
It is one of Africa’s easiest self drives as they drive on the left, the official language is English and the roads are well maintained. The distances are big so allow enough time to get to your destination and ensure you have time to enjoy it when you get there.
Well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent, where animals roam wild and free. You could experience the stunning beauty of the world’s largest intact inland Delta – the Okavango; the vastness of the world’s second largest game reserve – the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the isolation and other-worldliness of the Makgadikgadi – uninhabited pans the size of Portugal; and the astoundingly prolific wildlife of the Chobe National Park. The first – and most lasting impressions – will be of vast expanses of wilderness stretching from horizon to horizon, the sensation of limitless space, astoundingly rich wildlife and bird viewing, night skies littered with stars and heavenly bodies of an sheer brilliance, and stunning sunsets of beauty.
Then find the secret Tuli block, full of history going back to the dawn of man and part of the Great Zimbabwe. All to be found with the wildlife that has its own history going back even further. The mighty Limpopo River adds another dimension with its giant Mashatu trees fringing its banks and full of animals and birds.
Zambia, is that diamond in the rough, here you can see one of the seven wonders of the world the Victoria falls on the Zambezi River and an abundance of wildlife. It boasts 19 national parks, the better known are South Luangwa , Kafue, Lower Zambezi and of course the wonderful Victoria Falls. Zambia is a unique destination to experience the wild as it was, the essence of the real Africa and to be experienced in different ways – traditional 4×4, on foot or from a boat. Each experience has its unique flavour.
