Wolwedans Dune Camp in the NamibRand Reserve, Namibia, has been refreshed. New features include the "Wolwedans Chiller" - a private plunge pool in each tent, sleeping under the stars on your tent's spacious deck, and a full outdoor bathroom, to compliment the indoor. Lighter meals have also been introduced using produce from the Wolwedans gardens (quite a feat to grow lettuce in the desert!). Finally, a "Happiness Manager" has been appointed to look after each guest's well-being while enjoying the magical Namib landscape.
To celebrate Old Mondoro's 20th Anniversary this year, the camp located in the Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia, has had a mini face lift.

The 5 double chalets have been extended, with new mosquito netting surrounding a ceiling fan, as well as new washbasins and vanities. The family tent also boasts a private campfire.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp, located in the south central Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, is pleased to announce its new offering of professionally guided walking safaris. Guests will head off with their guide to explore the wide-open savannah on foot, learning about wildlife by tracking and tracing their small (and sometimes large!) footprints, markings, and other important details. Guides will share their in-depth knowledge of animals and help guests understand how they interact with their habitat and one another.
The newly opened Cheetah Plains, located within the Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa, offers an individualistic approach to family Safaris, incorporating wellness, an immersive safari experience and general "comfort for the soul." With only three luxury villas accommodating a maximum of 8 guests each, Cheetah Plains provides a luxurious safari sojourn and bushveld retreat. The lodge is one of the first in the Sabi Sand to offer twice-daily game drives in electric Land Cruiser safari vehicles. It also generates all of its own power and is completely "off the grid."
