Soaring Above Savannahs or Dunes
It’s early, when weather is cooler and winds are calmer. You’re soaring on a hot-air balloon safari with the rising sun and exotic birds, high above breathtaking expanse and herds of animals in Kenya or Tanzania, or gliding over Namibia’s oceans of sand and mountains! Floating back, you top things off with a sumptuous breakfast and Champagne toast.
Tracking Mountain Gorillas in Uganda
Shhh … after trekking deep into mist-shrouded forests, you’re being still and sensitive to wildlife and the environment, searching for families of mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. Home to half the world’s population of mountain gorillas, Uganda boasts a large number of “habituated” gorilla groups – those that, through careful, repeated exposure to humans, continue to behave normally even when people are nearby. No glass, no bars, just heart-touching, once-in-a lifetime togetherness.
“Camping” Among Africa’s Wildlife
Time for sleep and you’re drifting off beneath canvas to sounds of the African night in IE’s mobile tented camp. Its prime location puts you in the heart of the Serengeti, synonymous with wildlife and classic scenery. Dreams tonight recall the day’s game drives – seeing vast blue skies meeting golden grasslands occupied by members of the “Big 5” and herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. Among the most distinctive aspects of our safari is that you’ll always have a window seat, ensuring that even transfers between camps become game drives!
Cruising Botswana’s Waters with a Private Poler
With no motors humming, you’re capturing the essence of the rich Okavango Delta on excursions aboard a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). Gliding through pristine waterways accompanied by your Okavango-born guide and poler, you listen to the sound of the water lapping against the vessel, the call of birds and the grunting of hippos while learning the secrets of living in the Delta – home also to tiny frogs and not so tiny elephants.
