When the weather gets dull and dreary in January, we could recommend many places to visit to escape the doldrums. This January, we think you should consider an adventure in Africa. It’s crowd-free and wild as can be.
A safari and cruise through Botswana, Zambia, and South Africa reveals some of the continent’s top highlights; Big Five safaris and incredible bird life, a cruise down the Chobe River, the mesmerizing Victoria Falls, all topped off with a few days in cosmopolitan Cape Town.
Some very real places played a part in the development of The Lion King, and although the pride lands you’ll see on screen are a mixture of fantasy and reality, they are sure to inspire you to see the true African wilds for yourself.
The thrill of an African safari is the opportunity to witness wild and wonderful creatures in their natural habitats, from floodplains to fantastic grasslands. And sometimes in the midst of spotting the usual suspects (like giraffes, elephants, and lions), you may catch sight of something more unique. See these bizarre animals on an African safari. It will give you something even more exciting to share with your friends back home.
There are several reasons why we love a safari in Botswana. Among them are the authentic safari experiences found at the exclusive camps and properties. Ker & Downey designers Nicole Porto and Ken Hermer made a trip there recently.
If it’s your first time to go on safari, your list of wildlife to see probably includes the “Big 5.” Spotting them on the safaris of today can still be challenging… unless you know where to look.
We love Botswana and sharing it with everyone we can. Recently Ker & Downey’s Evan Jones had to the opportunity to travel there for a safari in the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, and the Kalahari. He is sharing the highlights from his trip with us below.
Every now and then, celebrities jet off to escape being in the public eye, leaving behind their glamorous lives to enjoy a little downtime in luxurious locations around the globe. We can help you also feel like a star by planning a celebrity-style trip to one of these hot spots where the famous jetset have stayed.
We’re no strangers to Botswana safaris, but since we aren’t on safari every day, a chance to see it on film has us scrambling to set our DVRs. Consider us ready for the acclaimed Into The Okavango National Geographic documentary to make its small screen debut. Named an Official Selection at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, the film documents the sweeping landscapes and wild animals that are unique to the region and, sadly, increasingly threatened. To celebrate its world premiere on Nat Geo Wild, we’re taking a look at how travelers can go Into The Okavango with Ker & Downey.
Why should girls have all the fun? Men need to take a guy’s trip every once in a while too. It’s just as important for men to build their friendships with other men as it is for women to build their friendships with their girlfriends. Getting away for a little bit will help them bond and connect in ways that an after-work drink can’t do.
