Where we stayed ... totally charming!

All four camps were tucked out of sight, surrounded by protected land and animals, served by local folk chosen by local communities, eight "cabins" and thus only sixteen guests. A special gift at each camp was the "loo with a view", which allowed folks to answer the call of nature while watching nature itself.

Below is a sampling of photos from our stay in Baobab (Botswana), Lianshulu (Nambia), Wilderness (Okavanga Delta, Botswana) and Linkwasha (Hwange, Zimbabwe).

     
Linkwasha Camp; camera points in 3 directions:
from the mud hole, from our porch, & from behind.
                   
                               
In Baobab II, we are welcomed by staff
and by a sunset seen from our private porch.

 
                   
               
Dinners and napkins
were a daily treat.
       
   
 
Whether in tents or in "hard walls",
our beds were comfy & beautiful and had lights for us readers.
The nightly hot water bottle tucked in the bed was an absolute treat.
 
     
     
                                   
Lianshulu had bed nets (but no mosquitos!). The Okavanga Delta had ramps & stilts.
       
     
Every day had at least one game drive.
Panchos helped - somewhat - with the freezing cold start; Tom's nose alone braves the chill.
                                                 
                         
   
                           
Every camp had a lecture on local history, a last evening celebration,
and sometimes a demonstration of local crafts.
     
We traveled by boat, by plane, and by (mostly) reliable Land Rovers.
Not everyone changes a tire in deep sand while a guide with a rifle stands guard.
