“Even today, to visit Africa is a feast for the senses. The bush literally brings one’s faculties to life, as you learn to see better, to smell for the first time, to be silent and to listen.”

“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”

“Travel not to find yourself, but to remember who you've been all along.”

“Travel not to find yourself, but to remember who you've been all along.”

A safari designed specifically for enthusiastic golfers, keen birders or avid fishermen, even a safari for the specialists – dragonfly or dung beetle experts, for instance! – must be tailored specifically to requirements.

This is when the intimate and fundamental knowledge of the experts in each of these fields in the different safari countries comes to the fore. A lifetime of living and working in Africa gives us the edge when it comes to finding just the person and operation to accommodate these sometimes unusual requests.

BIRDING

‘…birds bring the bush to life’.

John Stevens learnt this as a young boy and indeed, on your safari in Africa with John you will not only experience wonderful bird viewing, but also perhaps even become a converted ‘birder’ by the time you return home. At different times of the year there are ‘hot spots’ for rare and migrant species. You may wish to see the vast flocks of southern carmine Bee-eaters that visit the Luangwa and Zambezi Valleys from late August through to October or in Uganda and northern Zambia you may wish to stalk the very secretive shoebill. These different options can be tailored into your personal itinerary making birding the prime objective in destinations of your choice. John suggests the best results are achieved with small groups of like-minded birding enthusiasts. Arrive with patience and a good pair of binoculars, and John will do the rest.

FISHING

Africa offers many opportunities for excellent and varied fishing, either as part of a safari or where the prime focus of your safari is to fish.

Tiger and bream fishing in Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba.

Fishing for Tigerfish, Chessa and Nkupe (even possibly a Vundu which can weigh up to 90 lbs) from the Zimbabwe or Zambia side of the Zambezi River.

Enjoy trout fishing in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Kenya. an abundance of rivers, streams, lakes and dams, fly-fishers are spoilt for choice. Here are some of our favourite spots to try.

There’s some excellent sport fishing in Rwanda and Uganda. For instance, you can fish the river Nile by boat below the world renowned Murchison Falls for the powerful Nile perch and other species, several of which can be taken on a fly including the Awaka, a small tiger, and the Ungara.

GOLF
