The energy that first-time safari goers exude, that of complete innocent excitement and anticipation, is extremely infectious to all who witness it. This feeling is also amplified as the upcoming experience is something completely new, out of one's comfort zone, venturing onto a new continent that you have only watched documentaries on or dreamed about

When you are fortunate enough to have guests returning to Africa for the third time, one really does begin to understand the passion that can be ignited for this great continent. The Okavango Delta is one of Africa's special places that fuels this passion! Each time one visits or returns to the Delta, it fills the soul with a sense of complete relaxation and awe.
