Namibia Safari Specials

Every year our partner in Namibia offers some great rates for travel during the "green season".  Usually these rates only apply from January to March, but this year they've been extended for travel between September to March.

The "green season" is southern Africa's summertime and in some places the rainy season.  Typically it's the least popular time for safaris, but there are some distinct advantages to traveling between September and March.

Take a look at a few sample itineraries for some safari inspiration.  We can work with to design a customized itinerary to match your interests and budget.  Our partner is also offering generous terms to give you the confidence to travel once again.

Serengeti 9

Authentic Tanzania with Dan Hopkins

Please join Dan Hopkins, owner of GrassTrack Safaris, for a privately guided 13-day safari through the game parks of northern Tanzania.  Our guide is one of the top in Tanzania (he's guided for BBC and Nat Geo film crews) and we'll join a big cat biologist as we participate in a Citizen Science project and assist in his research of the lions and cheetahs of the Serengeti.  We'll visit the beautiful Tarangire National Park and the stunning Ngorongoro Crater before traveling to the Serengeti.  Our visit will be near the end of the calving season when tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra give birth - surely one of the greatest natural history events on Earth! 



Kalahari & Okavango Safari

The “Green Season” is a special time of year to visit Botswana.  By December the rains have finally arrived transforming the dry, dusty bush into a green, lush wonderland.  Zebra and other plains game migrate south from the Chobe region to give birth and graze on the fresh grass of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the Kalahari Desert.

Visit the Kalahari Desert, the endless grasslands of Nxai Pan and Makgadikgadi Pans, search for all the classic African game in the Moremi Game Reserve, and glide across the Okavango Delta in a dugout canoe.  Accommodation will be in lodges for 2 nights, luxury camping for 8 nights.
