Africa Sky

It’s said that once you visit Africa, you’ll never want to go anywhere else! The dusty, slighty fragrant smell hits you as you arrive at your lodge and lingers in the memory long after you’ve returned home.

Imagine early mornings spent following the tracks of lion, or spotting a herd of elephants in the distance as you travel around in jeeps, with guides or rangers who are full of insights and anecdotes about their patch. You’ll be up early to find the best game as the animals start their day, before the sun gets high in the sky. It is so exhilarating to be at one with nature in the game parks and reserves, where the animals roam freely.

Afternoons are generally spent relaxing, maybe catching a snooze at the lodge, which can be the absolute height of luxury despite being quite literally in the middle of nowhere. Staying under canvas takes on a whole new meaning – with outdoor waterfall showers, hugely comfortable beds and balconies that give uninterrupted views across the savannah. Meals tend to be taken communally, although the cuisine is far from basic and afternoon tea is often a celebrated occasion.

Late afternoons bring another drive in the bush, or maybe a boat safari on a river, with sundowners taken whilst you’re out watching the sunset. This is the perfect time for bird watching, binoculars to hand and you’ll maybe get that one unique photo if you’re patient. Evenings are spent relaxing, often by the camp fire with a drink or two, after a great dinner. And then early to bed, listening to the sounds of the bush, as it settles down for the night. For your own, tailor-made, unforgettable trip, try Africa Sky.
