Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp opening soon
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp (Kaokoveld, Namibia) is on track to open on the 1st of August. Click here to view a “sneak peak” video highlighting the area’s wildlife, extraordinarily well-adapted to their arid habitat. Elephant and giraffe take advantage of the few trees available along dry riverbeds, while gemsbok are the consummate desert survivors, conserving water in their bodies. The Skeleton Coast's beaches host thousands of Cape fur seals, while the camp itself is host to plentiful mammalian guests while it awaits human ones.
Chiawa's Mud-Wallow Hide
Chiawa Camp (Lower Zambezi, Zambia) has announced the opening of its "Mud-Wallow Hide” complete with specialized night vision equipment. The hide is effectively a bunker dug into the ground with a grass roof and concealed entrance that provides an eye-to-toe level viewing perspective. These images demonstrate unique nocturnal sightings through the camp’s night vision monoculars.
Tongabezi, Open or Shut?
Some guests relish sleeping with only mosquito netting between them and the wild Zambezi River at Tongabezi (Victoria Falls, Zambia) but others find that they prefer to slumber ensconced behind locked doors. The lodge’s Bird House can now cater to everyone with its new sliding glass doors that can open wide to imbibe the wilderness or create a secure cocoon.
Savuti Camp's Sleeping Decks
Wilderness Safaris’ Savuti Camp in the Linyanti Reserve, Botswana, has introduced a unique opportunity for adventurous guests to sleep overnight on outdoor decks overlooking the wildlife-rich Savute Channel. Located a 20-minute drive or 45-minute boat trip away from the camp, the two new “sleep-out” decks offer guests a truly secluded and intimate wilderness experience under the African sky.
Yet, adventure and comfort are not mutually exclusive – each deck is fitted with luxurious beds, mosquito netting, and basic ablution facilities nearby. A highly-qualified guide is on “standby” should assistance be required during the night. The excursion will include a campfire dinner or a delicious bush breakfast.
Singita Boulders Lodge Gets a Facelift
Singita Boulders Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa, has been thoughtfully reconfigured and redecorated to define its unique sense of place on the boulder-strewn banks of the Sand River. Guest areas have been opened up, lowered, and brought closer to the river, allowing full engagement with the magnificent setting and encouraging a connection with nature.
Throughout the lodge, pared-down interiors in a palette of charcoal, chalk, bone, rust, copper and ochre reflect the four elements of earth, fire, air and water. Dramatic sculptural shapes, abstract art, and carefully curated collections of natural found objects articulate a deep connection with the wild. Cleverly designed communal spaces, such as the sociable Copper Bar serving freshly pressed fruit juices, espressos and cocktails, provide opportunities for guests to connect with their surroundings and with each other.
