Chiwani is reaching for the Stars with Suites

My recent stay at Chiwani Safari Camps confirmed my love for Damaraland, its beautiful landscapes and for Chiwani. To top it all, I was spoilt with a stay in the brand new luxury Rhino Suite at Camp Kipwe. What a treat! Opening your own private “rock door” that leads you to your private section of the Kipwe hill.  We were embraced by an opulent lounge, with spacious sofas and coffee tables. The interiors were complemented by a mouth-watering selection of drinks in the mini bar only to be served in the most elegant selection of glasses. From the lounge you then enter the sophisticated bedroom, with a pure invite to lie down immediately.  The interior is so luxurious and the smallest attention to details wherever you look.

To sit on your private veranda and soak up endless vista with ancient boulders and golden grass is almost indescribable. Your private dip pool takes care of scorching summer temperatures.  What a bliss and what a spoil. A stay to be remembered and thank you to the very friendly Camp Kipwe team and Chiwani.

Robin Pope Website Revamp and Special offers

It seems a newfound spark is making the rounds as our partner Robin Pope Safaris has also been hard at work to update their website. Some smaller changes might still follow but in the meantime feel free to visit the new website.

Photographic Safari

Robin Pope is offering clients the chance to enjoy a photographic workshop while on safari in the renowned South Luangwa National Park with David Rogers Photography. David, a well-known wildlife photographer, author of several books and comes with a lot of expertise.

Choose between 2 available set departures:

Dates: 14 Oct 2022 or 15 March 2023

South Luangwa National Park has been featured over the years in a number of very impressive wildlife documentaries. It is no surprise though as the park is renowned for being one of the last wildlife sanctuaries so an obvious choice for every wildlife photographer.

Machaba Kiri Camp now with mega picture material and surely a story for your own newsletter

In case you missed it: On the 1st of June Machaba Safaris opened Kiri Camp. This family friendly camp situated in the Delta offers a combination of both game drives and water activities. It is based on a private concession, and the activities will take you to some of the more remote areas in the delta. A motorboat ride during peak flood times or a quiet glide on a mokoro through the water lilies where wildlife can be viewed from water level height is part of the experience. The wildlife in the Kiri area is diverse and plentiful. Please visit this link to see the updated images for Kiri Camp. The opening special offer for Kiri is still valid until end October. The camp looks magnificent and seems to reach for the stars in the Delta. A new gem in the Machaba crown? Yet in true Machaba style, the authentic safari ambiance is the key element to their philosophy.
