Okonjima offers top class ecotourism. Close encounters with both wild and rehabilitated big cats, encounters which can change the lives of both the visitors and the animals. The guides are superb, the accommodation beautifully designed, comfortable and luxurious without being ostentatious and the service top rate. Guests get to savour the Namibian landscape and learn its secrets and also an essential introduction to its vulnerability. They are also allowed access behind the scenes of AfriCats’ activities to see first hand how the charity works on the ground. To visit this wonderful country and not make time for Okonjima is unthinkable.
If you’re thinking of going deep down south or high north for a bit of Penguin or Polar Bear action then before you pack your fleece and put your snowshoes on checkout Peregrine Adventures – Chris has been with them and their professionalism and quality must surely be unsurpassable.
If you fancy a holiday in the sun with some of the best birding available just the other side of the swimming pool, in one of the most friendly countries, at really reasonable prices then you’ve got to think of going to the Gambia. Chris has been 10 times and he’s already booked for number 11.
Photographing Tigers in the wild can only be described as one of the most incredible experiences. It’s not every day safari, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so you want to get it right and go with the right people to the right places. Chris and Megan went with Lionscape and everything was fabulous. Great camp and the best guides in the world.
He hasn’t been yet but both Chris and Megan are itching to get out to Paul Goldstein’s Kicheche Mara Camp in Kenya. He visited this site years ago and it was wonderful then but now Paul has turned his hand to it and offers full on proper photographic safaris the place is pulling like a great big African magnet. Watch this space . . . or beat him to it.
I’ve done lots of trips tour guiding for this company (Cuba, Peru, South Africa, Botswana, Uganda . . . ) and they have all been of the highest order, well planned, great itineraries, excellent support and clients always totally satisfied. They are a total pleasure to work for and I have loads of great memories to treasure as a result. Check their site if you want something special.
