Location: Wilderness Safaris operates camps and safaris in Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the Seychelles. From subtropical Malawi, to hyper-arid Namibia, the broad savannah mosaic of much of Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia, and the enormous variety of South Africa, the area covering the southern third of the African continent is hugely diverse and exciting.
But the countries in which we operate encompass not just biodiversity but also ethnicity, scenery, climate and many other aspects. The region, so easily encapsulated in the single term “southern Africa”, is not readily categorised. It is simply Africa: a tapestry of complexity, contradiction and a celebration of life.
Premier Camps: This is the highest level of camps in our portfolio and comprises our most elegant and stylised accommodation. These camps combine luxury, superbly designed architecture with the warm comforts of home and personal service. Each Premier Camp has its own individual style, as well as additional features such as salas for a soothing midday siesta. Each tent or bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, often with an outdoor shower ‘under the stars.’
Classic Camps: Our Classic camps are generally tented camps, although a few are lodges built from permanent structures. All these camps offer superb facilities and accommodation, the bedrooms being slightly smaller than those of our Premier camps. Many of the Classic Wilderness camps tents are raised off the ground with interconnecting walkways. All tents have en-suite bathrooms.
Discoverer Exploration: Discoverer Explorations are a deluxe range of mobile safaris that have the advantage of superb locations, taking our guests on a select, spectacular journey through the most remote wilderness areas to enjoy outstanding wildlife viewing in Africa. Our itineraries provide exciting encounters with the most diverse, renowned and scenic areas in each country.
Adventurer Exploration: Adventurer Explorations camps are pre-erected in prime, shady sites, close to the wildlife. These trails camps have “maxi” dome tents which are surprisingly spacious and sport stretchers and cotton linen. Thanks to easy mobility these safaris explore the most remote and secret corners of the subcontinent.
Trails Exploration: Trails Explorations are not accommodation specific – Adventurer dome tents and Discoverer Meru tents as well as sleeping platforms are used – and are defined rather by the self-propelled nature of the experience, whether this be on foot, canoe or bicycle.
