The main lodge area at Leroo La Tau is built out of natural wood, brick and thatch, housing the lounge, bar, dining room, reception area and curio shop.

The Boteti River is one of the far reaches of the Okavango Delta as it filters into the Kalahari Sands. It has not flowed strongly since 1995 but thanks to high floods seeping down the river system in 2009, the Boteti River is flowing once again. The park, populated by up to 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators, offers guests the chance to experience the exhilaration of seeing large concentrations of game and the resultant predator interaction.

Having explored the area and enjoyed a spectacular wildlife phenomenon on guided day and night game drives, guests can retire after dinner to a splendid fireplace overlooking the river. The lodge also offers a raised hide above the river where guests can enjoy the spectacular wildlife sightings that we’ve come to expect in this part of Botswana. The formerly dry riverbed is a major route of the zebra and wildebeest migration (June-November) and outside of the migratory time of the year, for those staying several nights, activities may include a day trip to Makgadikgadi or Nxai Pan National Park.

No game drives take place at Pelo; as the emphasis is on getting away from vehicles and the hustle of the modern world; to really feel, smell and touch Africa.

Pelo Camp is set in one of the best areas to see sitatunga and red lechwe. Wildlife concentrations within this part of the Okavango Delta depend on the water flow and volume and thus change from season to season.

Oliver’s Camp

Oliver’s Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern part of the park, in the middle of Tarangire’s unspoilt wilderness. The camp is ideally placed to access the yearly migrations of wildlife, and to view impressive concentrations at waterholes and in the spectacular Silale swamps. This area offers the best chance of seeing lion, leopard and cheetah and, especially during the dry season, the swamps are filled with elephant, buffalo and zebra. The camp is the perfect base to explore the busier baobab-country in the north of the park, but at the end of the day, guests return to the absolute exclusivity of Oliver’s Camp.

Located in the middle of the Tarangire wilderness, Oliver’s Camp has one of the most wonderful settings one could imagine and offers an unparalleled bush experience. From the camp, a much wider eco-system can be overlooked: the Ngorongoro highlands, the Great Rift Valley, the Lame Manyara region and of course Tarangire NP itself. There is no better location from which to understand the breathtaking beauty and at the same time the complexity and ultimate fragility of this unique eco-system.

The camp features only 10 beautifully furnished guest tents. Solid wooden furniture, beautiful cloth and gorgeous warm showers that can be taken under the Tarangire sky. Every evening, guests relax or read in the lounge and library tent, or drink sundowners at the fireplace, from which superb views of landscape and sunset can be enjoyed.

Game drives from Oliver’s Camp are usually carried out in open vehicles, giving a feeling of absolute freedom. Off-road driving, allowed only in the remote areas of the park, gets you closer to nature and wildlife – from spider to lion – and you’ll discover rare and interesting species that usually go unnoticed when driving on dedicated roads.
Walking is the absolute specialty of Oliver’s Camp. The privilege of walking in these prime natural areas gives you exhilarating feeling of adventure. Although you’ll usually get close to large mammals such as elephant, giraffe, buffalo or even lion, walking safaris are very safe: the experienced naturalist guides of Oliver’s Camp avoid confrontations with animals (watching is not the same as disturbing!) and an armed national park ranger accompanies every walk.


Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp

Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp is situated on the shores of Lake Eyasi, with sweeping views toward the Rift. Across this seasonal soda lake, the Alipi escarpment wall rises 2,000 feet up into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area providing a stunning backdrop. The camp is beautifully set in a Llala palm and acacia forest and is part of 200-acre family-owned farm with a natural spring nearby which feeds into the lake. It is also home to the Wahadzabe, an ancient, nomadic tribe of bushmen who are one of the last click-speaking hunter-gatherer tribes.

Sitting on a small forest of acacias on the edge of the spring, the camp is designed to blend in woth the natural environment.
Constructed almost entirely with palms and trees from the family’s property, each of Kisima Ngeda’s seven tents are built on a permanent wooden platform with a palm thatched roof, a hand-carved bed, and an enclosed bathroom and shower with hot water. The tents are carefully created to be low-impact, spacious, and totally comfortable. Each has a stunning view of the lake.

A melting pot of culture, Kisima Ngeda offers a different experience from what you’ll find on a traditional safari. Here, you can actually get out of the car — you can explore the trails around the lake, canoe along the shore, mountain bike by baobobs and acacias, walk through nearby tribal villages, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful lake views (especially at sunset on top of the rock). While it’s possible to see wildlife, what makes Kisima Ngeda truly special is the opportunity to visit with the local tribes. The waDatoga are a pastoral group like the Maasai, and it’s always interesting to visit the local blacksmith or a Datoga boma. And of course spending a day with the waHadzabe, hunter-gatherers that speak the language of the first human inhabitants of the continent, is like taking a trip back far into our own past.

Six wide spacious safari tents with large shade net windows to let in lots of light and cool breezes. Private bathroom tents are set just behind with traditional safari style bucket showers,eco-flush toilet. Hot and cold water available on demand.
Unbelievable game, with vast herds of buffalo roaming the plains; also elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, crocodiles and hippo. Return to the creature comforts of Chada Katavi after an exciting day of adventure and discovery.
Game drives in open 4WD vehicles, fly camping under the stars, outstanding birding, daily walks, and longer 3-4 day walking safaris taking you further out into the wilder areas of the park.

Porini Amboseli Camp

Porini Amboseli Camp is located in the Selenkay Conservation Area, a 15,000-acre private game reserve within a vast tract of land owned by the Kisonko clan of the Maasai people. The Conservancy is an important dispersal area for wildlife moving in and out of Amboseli and holds a wide diversity of species. In addition to the better-known big game like elephant, lion, cheetah, giraffe and zebra, there are several less common species such as caracal, African wildcat, civet, gerenuk, lesser kudu and striped hyena.The camp  has the advantage to offer game drives in the park as well as in the  exclusive Selenkay reserve.

The Camp

The Camp consists of nine spacious tents, sited among shady Acacia Tortilis trees, in a spot once favoured by big game hunters. The camp is small and exclusive, accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. It is set up along the lines of the traditional hunting safari bush camp, so there are no permanent structures like bar or restaurant or swimming pool – this is real camping in the bush, but with much more comfortable bathroom arrangements than were available to the hunters of earlier years! The tents are large and comfortably furnished, each with a double and a single bed, solar-powered electric lights, and en suite bathroom with safari shower, washbasin and flush toilet.
Meals are taken under the shade of an Acacia tree and after dinner we can sit around the campfire and listen to the sounds of the African night. The camp is staffed entirely by members of the local Maasai community.

All transport on this safari is in a specially designed open-sided Landrover 4 wheel drive safari vehicle. There are no minibuses or other tourists or vehicles in the conservancy, allowing guests to enjoy a unique experience compared to traditional mass-tourist lodges and camps. Maasai warriors escort guests on a walk in the conservancy where they can learn about how the various indigenous animals and plants are used by the community and how their way of life is intertwined with their surroundings. Guests are taken to a local Maasai village where they can experience a little of traditional Maasai village life. Sundowners with views of Mt Kilimanjaro and night game drives are all part of the experience at Amboseli Porini.
