My First Safari In 2018

It is going to tuck me away in the north western half of South Africa. A completely malaria free area that forms part of the Greater Kalahari system and as a result, its far drier than many other destinations. I cannot wait to back to Madikwe Game Reserve & spend 6 nights at Nkurru Lodge.

I look forward to the red sands and golden sunsets! This special place is a perfect safari destination for a South African safari experience.

This particular safari is one of our most popular products and for these of you that have been lucky enough to visit the area will know exactly what I am talking about. One thing I really do enjoy about this particular safari is that we take exclusive use of a 5 star lodge (Nkurru) which in turn gives us complete photographic freedom and the ability to maximise our time in the field.

For these of you that have not yet heard of this particular safari, the highlights & rough itinerary follows;

We will then head out on the game vehicle for our first early morning game drive. We are not restricted by any lodge schedules and have complete flexibility in terms of the duration and focus of our game drives.

Breakfast and lunch will be served upon our return followed by ad-hoc Lightroom sessions and Q&A on any questions and techniques the group may want to explore in more detail. We will then head out on our second game drive of the day before dinner.
