That got me thinking: The world is big, and for the travel enthusiast there are many jaw-droppingly gorgeous travel destinations from which to choose. So what is it about an African safari that makes it so special and has people coming back time and time again?

Giraffe Awe and Wild Things on Safari in Botswana

Lists of species names and photos simply cannot capture how raw and transcendent it is to be in the wild in Africa. But some sightings are worth the effort because they are almost spiritual. We witnessed a tower (herd) of giraffes move at full gallop across the landscape in the early evening. It was simply otherworldly.

African Rain: Still a Super Safari, With or Without It

  • Francesco Pierre-Nina
  • 24 July 2012

So many of this season’s drives have been spectacular, if not simply stunning, both in dry and wet conditions. One damp morning, after riveting rain and hailstorms pounded us, we took off blind in thick fog. We bundubashed out of camp to see if we could locate three particular cheetahs, although given the conditions we may have been happier snug in bed. No way. Not after what we saw!

  • 22 April 2012

This gigantic, magnificent, old-as-time and – some would say – upside-down tree is known as the baobab. A symbol of endurance, strength and conservation. While you are likely to be taken aback by its presence and history, it also gives an exciting feeling of freedom and inspires a desire to explore, as many generations before have done.

Often described as one of Africa’s last frontiers, Mozambique, a large country in the southeastern part of the continent, is among the most variegated places in the world.

On the occasion when this picture was taken, we were visiting the Addo National Park, staying at Gorah Elephant Camp, one of the luxury camps found within the park, and were on an afternoon safari. We came across these lions a few hundred meters from the camp. They were on their way to the camp to overnight with two other lionesses and the big dominant male.
