Winter Sun and Wildlife

It may seem a bit strange to be thinking of next winter with all of the, hopefully, hot summer ahead of us. But if you want to ensure that you have a sunshine break with a difference during the ever longer winters that we seem to be experiencing, then now is the time to start planning your getaway.

There are at least two good reasons to book now and the first is that there are bargains to be found now that will disappear as they fill. The second is that many of the destinations have limited capacity and do fill quickly leading to second choices.

Africa generally is a wonderful destination at this time of the year, but some places are rightfully more popular and also more exclusive. One such destination is the Okavango Delta in Botswana – a spectacular wildlife destination, with limited access giving you a feeling of having the wilderness to yourself and few others. Add in the different ways of seeing the wildlife, traditional 4×4 vehicle, by boat or an a dugout known as a mokoro and you have animals encounters that you will always remember. Your campsites are small and in private concessions ensuring an exclusive use of this beautiful part of Africa.
There is something magical in sipping a sundowner while watching wildlife passing in front of you and in a hot/warm breeze while just a couple of days ago you left a cold and probably damp UK behind you. That couple of weeks of sunshine in the middle of winter, with all the excitement of wild Africa, can shrink the winter to a manageable size.

So what should you budget for to have a 9/10 day experience such as this for next winter? For a safari that that takes you to 3 locations in the Okavango Delta and includes game drives/boat trips, transfers, all meals and soft drinks the cost comes to £2350 per person. Flights have to be added to that.
