Southern Safari takes you on an unforgettable journey through three countries in the south of Africa. The experience, which takes place across Namibia, Botswana and Zambia covers diverse landscapes and ecosystems: the Namib desert, the Okavango delta and the Victoria Falls.
The desert, the delta and the falls
Along the way you’ll stay in exclusive campsites, selected for their luxury and their location, often situated in remote areas and on private reserves, far from civilisation. For this reason, you’ll be travelling between them via light aircraft, a form of transport that not only allows us to land right in the heart of nature, but also affords spectacular views of the land below, giving you a sense of the size and majesty of the landscapes we’ll be visiting.
These iconic landscapes include the towering red sand dunes of the Sossusvlei valley, the enormous wetlands of the Okavango delta and one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi river.
The diversity of the landscapes is amply matched by the fauna that calls it home. During the safari you’ll see herds of Oryx and Springbok, elephants, crocodiles, hippos, lions, African wild dogs and innumerable other mammals and birds. Among the activities offered are hot air balloon rides, both walking and 4X4 safaris and a unique water safari via local ‘mokoro’ (dugout canoe).
Five reasons why
Making memories. A safari is simply an unforgettable experience. Having the privilege to explore some of the planets’ last remaining wilderness, and seeing the wildlife and countryside first hand, feels like being inside a nature documentary. Truly a one of a kind experience.
Perfect pictures. The sheer natural beauty of the landscapes, and being able to observe the unique wildlife up close, makes this a perfect experience for photographers of all levels.
Escape the mundane. For most, travel is an opportunity to break out of our routines, to disconnect and engage with the wider world. On safari you’ll be completely in the moment, away from screens and distractions, giving you the escape you need to return, recharged and energised.
A different concept of luxury. Even though you’ll be far from civilisation, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and amenities you’ll receive, even on the most isolated campsites. The reduced capacity of all our accommodation and personal attention you’ll receive will make you feel right at home.
Sheer Inspiration. For many of our customers, the landscapes, wildlife and cultures they’ve encountered have helped to inspire them in their professional life; from architecture, music, fashion to inspiration for novels. We’re convinced that if you’re facing a block, a safari in Africa will give you the push you need.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of the savannah, the jungle or in the heart of the wild, at every point in your journey you’ll receive the comfort, luxury, privacy, top class attention to detail and organisation you’d expect, thanks to the exclusive lodgings and accommodations selected for you by Planeta Azul.
Where luxury and the wilderness meet.
At Planeta Azul, we believe that the more extreme the experience, and more intense the emotions lived, the better you appreciate the finer things in life. Because the journey doesn’t end after a full day on Safari. Continue the adventure with a rejuvenating full body massage or beauty treatment, followed by dinner prepared by one of our skilled chefs. After dinner, unwind with top of the range leisure facilities before turning in for the night in luxury lodgings, with all the amenities you could wish for. A perfect end to a perfect day, setting you up perfectly to experience it all again tomorrow.
