Have you seen an elephant swim?

15 August 2014

ZAMBIA: The magic of safari in the LOWER ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK is that everything revolves around the river: elephants swim across the river and sometimes disappear in the depths leaving only a trunk sticking out like a snorkel. Safari at Chiawa Camp and Old Mondoro means that there is as much going on in the water or on foot as in their 4x4s! Their team of expert guides, each with a specialist area, can show your clients a great time:

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Canoeing safari - no noise, no bumps, just a paradoxical mix of calm and adrenaline, especially coming so close to the elephants.
  2. Walking safari - get up close and personal with the wildlife on foot! Tracking and inspecting dung are all part of this learning experience.
  3. Boating safari - glide past pods of hippo, watch the ele's coming down to drink or swimming across the Zambezi!
  4. Tiger fishing - razor sharp teeth, these predators of the Zambezi River are fantastic to catch (and release of course!).
  5. Wildlife hides - this is at eye level with the Zambezi River! You're escorted from camp to the safety of the hide for fantastic birding and wildlife encounters, or go to the hide overlooking the watering hole.
  6. Day and night 4x4 safari - Chiawa Camp has developed the "Chiawa filter" for maximising photographic effect at night when using red filters on headlights and spotlights. This allows clear shots without deterring the wildlife with the light.

Siruai Expedition Camp

Siruai is an authentic mobile safari camp situated in the 43,000-acre privately-owned Suyian ranch in central Kenya. Perched on a rocky ridge line, the camp overlooks the Ewaso Narok River valley and out over the Laikipia Plateau with views of Mount Kenya beyond. ‘Siruai’ means ‘eland’ in Maa – the world’s largest antelope. These shy herbivores are one of the many beautiful animals you can spot around the camp – look out for their striking long black twisted horns and the distinctive white stripes on their back. Most definitely off the beaten safari track, Siruai Expedition Camp immerses you in a lesser known, wild pocket of Kenya and is perfect for exploring the incredible scenery of northwest Laikipia...
