Elegant Resorts’ African Elite

Posted on 19. Feb, 2013 by in Destinations

Following the success of Sir Attenborough’s recent series ‘Africa’; we at Elegant Resorts have the luxury lodges, water-based camps and mobile safari tents to accommodate your dreams and make your safari bucket-list a reality!

Lioness - Elegant ResortsWhichever episode enthralled you the most, we can easily create your perfect itinerary – accessing remote desert dunes, vast open plains, mist shrouded mountains; and hidden watering–holes to locate the animals and wildlife you long to see. Awaken to the deep calls of hippos in the nearby river at Singita Ebony Lodge; and allow the wildlife to be the soundtrack of your whole day – from a lively dawn chorus to magical sundowners watching the stunning sunset.

Whether it is the smallest bug, cheekiest meerkat, alpha lion, Southern Right Whale or baby Elephant which you have in your sights, we know the expert Trackers and Rangers to seek out the very best vantage points and watering holes.

For families wishing to share their love of animals and conservation, Sanbona, Shamwari, Kwandwe or Ulsuaba offer wonderful programmes which can include visits to local community projects or Endangered Species Centres. Children can meet local village children or see animals up close; plus learn about re-habilitation in action. Tswalu in the South Kalahari, can cater for a families wishing to horse-ride out for hours in their vast malaria-free reserve; or watch rare antelope, elusive aardwolf, pangolin and porcupine – not forgetting the Desert Black Rhino, black-maned Kalahari Lions or Meerkat colonies!

For those wanting a more tangible experience, Camp Jabulani and Abu Camp both offer memorable elephant encounters; with elephant and horse-back safaris part of their daily itinerary. Lodges and camps within Kenya and Tanzania can offer awe-inspiring migration encounters (for those brave enough to watch this annual spectacle)! Alternatively, walking safaris or makorro water-based safaris offer a far slower and quieter perspective to traditional game drives – perfect for birding in Botswana!Camp Jabulani - Elegant Resorts

In addition to the big 5 game or marine life, there is also a rich flora and fauna plus superb birdlife waiting to be discovered; and many Rangers are only too happy to help with photographic tips. Some camps even loan expert equipment and provide specialist Photography guides. Star-gazing, cookery, painting and archery are just a few other interests which can be enjoyed out in the bush! And, for nights out in the bush, we recommend enjoying a lively Boma evening, dining outdoors with local music, plus sleeping out under the brilliant starry skies on a special bed.The Residence, Zanzibar - Elegant Resorts

After all the anticipation, excitement and thrilling wildlife sightings, you’ll be ready to rest and re-count your many stories; so why not venture a little further to the blissful beaches of Mozambique or Tanzania? Whether you opt for pampering at The Residence Zanzibar or barefoot, rustic chic at Azura Quilalea, Mozambique; Africa really does have everything to offer. Discover a continent where you can journey for a lifetime.
