Property Updates

4/13/2016

 

Tongabezi's  River Cottages on the great Zambezi, Zambia, are now open! Major refurbishments include impressive raised roofs, custom-made wood and glass doors, expanded pine decking, giant windows and brand new floors.

 

Okonjima Bush Camp, Namibia, is undergoing a considerable upgrade with a lapa (thatched open-sided room) added to each cottage to serve as a sitting area. Canvas roll-down panels in the bedrooms have been replaced by glass, with canvas side panels that can swing open. The bedrooms now will have two queen sized beds. The main lapa has been fitted with two new fireplaces and the pathways have been improved.

 

Singita Ebony Lodge, Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa, is set to reopen in June after an extensive renovation. While Singita's "founder's camp" remains inspired by the romance and history of colonial camps of old, the new Ebony Lodge will represent a contemporary aesthetic of airy pared-down spaces that blur the boundaries between interior and exterior using glass walls, a palette reflecting the four elements of the earth, dramatic sculptural shapes, abstract art, and carefully curated collections of found objects.

 

At Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, the excitement "on the ground" is palpable - with just a few days to go before Linkwasha Camp welcomes its first guests in May. The camp is located in a private concession in the south-eastern corner of Hwange, close to the game-rich Ngamo Plains and overlooking a busy pan and waterhole. With only eight spacious tented rooms an exclusive traditional safari experience is guaranteed. The habitat diversity of the area attracts many different animal populations, including big game, predators, large herds of elephant and buffalo (particularly during the winter months) and over 400 species of birds! 

 

In an amicable agreement between Wilderness Safaris and Congo Conservation Company, Odzala Wilderness Camps have closed. Several adventurous Classic Africans had the privilege of visiting this remote and awe-inspiring part of Africa and had nothing but positive feedback. However, while an admirable venture, the high-end, fly-in safari model proved unsustainable for the location at this time. Despite Wilderness Safaris' relatively short tenure in Congo their passionate and tenacious team can be proud of their efforts and success entrenching a culture of conservation in the local community and the country as a whole.

 

The Makgadikgadi has been blessed with abundant late rains, which means that the zebra and wildebeest migration will be passing by Jack's and San Camps in full force over the next few weeks. Quad biking activities will resume once the pans are dry, likely in late May.
