The Kgalagadi offers interesting photo opportunities, this is where the desert and bush veld overlap. The dry sand veld and thunder storms. Pink clouds as the sand reflects upward, rainbows with a desert backdrop. Also hardened animals and a large community of carnivores.

Kgalagadi Eco tour & Southern Namibia

The Kgalagadi is special! One of my favourite spots for a getaway.

Peaceful and exclusive.

It has a few seasons and my favourite is just as the rainy season ends.

The butterflies are out, the veld is green and the area is showing its true colours.

This is one of the most un spoilt areas on the planet.

 A few bush camps, bush showers, this is the life. It is not a difficult tour and I will give you proper preparation for it.

We visit the Mabuasehube area for a few days, as well as Nossob and Mata Mata.

This must be on your bucket list as it is absolutely supreme.

But there is more: From Mata Mata I will do a quick tour to Sosousvlei and southern Namibia. 4 Days at no extra charge. Just pay for yourself as we go.

This tour is special. We travel from the most devine Central Kalahari camp in to the heart of the Delta and on to the pinnacle of the Chobe, You have the opportunity to see the Delta from the air, land and from the water. This provide very interesting photo opportunities.

Three in One Trans Botswana Central Kalahari, Moremi, Chobe

This is one of those mouthwatering tours. I am really looking forward to this one.

The tour incorporates legendary campsites and areas, rivers and bush veld.

We also have regular double and triple nights, so it is not a different camp every day.

The route is not as long as you would expect but yet we take our time to enjoy it.

We start in Central Kalahari and the renowned Piper pan for two nights.

From there we visit the 1000th UNESCO world heritage site, travel on the Delta by aluminium boat. Perfect sundowners and private concession drives. It can’t get much better than this.

Savuti camp and finally Northern Chobe, on the river.

Spend your Holiday with Bluerhino on this unforgettable tour.

Namibia is that place where the bushveld meets the desert. The landscape is spectacular. It also means great sunsets and sinrises due to the desert dust.

Then off course the duneveld and Atlantic ocean. The natural wonder at Brandberg.

The historical Swakkopmund and Walvisbaai.

Riverbeds and desert animals.

Kaokoland Namibia

Namibia is one of those destinations where it is difficult to say why it is a must do. The reason is that it is just one of those magical places. I chose to do Kaokoland in April just after the rains. The mountains have a tinge of green, the Marienfluss a lovely gold.

Just when you don’t expect it there are wild animals, Elephant, Oryx and Giraph.

The landscape seems to be from a different planet, the un spoilt nature is still un spoilt.

The tour requires a bit of off road driving, and then rewards you with the most spectacular landscape scenery you have ever seen.

We only stay in recognised campsites, no bush    camping.

We have a few days of relaxing.

We drive the Kunene river, visit Etosha, negotiate van Zyls pass, Marienfluss. Truly a magical two weeks.

Join us on this spectacular tour and do a few things you might not have done before.

You don’t need any experience as a 4x4 driver and you only need a basic 4x4 with low  range. Nothing fancy.

The great east African tour Serengeti, Malawi, Zanzibar

If your bucket list includes Serengeti, this tour will tick that box and offer you much more than Serengeti. It is such a great event that I changed the name to do the tour justice. It is really a great east African experience. This will be a month of your life that you will never forget.

You will see and experiencing something unique. We tour up in to the heart of east Africa. Some of the places you would recognise includes Victoria  falls, Lake Victoria, mount Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar island, Ngorogoro crater, Lake Malawi, Mana pools, Lusaka, Dar es Salaam.

At the heart of the tour we will catch the Wildebeest migration in the Grumeti area. We will visit the craft shops of the Masai. The spice tour of the historical Zanzibar Island.

This is a tour that every person must do at some stage. It is absolutely spectacular, and worth every cent. Visit the tour page to see more.

Lesotho lodge snow tour

Living on the southern tip of Africa is one of the blessings in life. We have a wonderful landscape and great weather but unfortunately this means snow is in short supply.

The Bluerhino Safaris Lesotho winter tour is specifically made to experience another side of life.

 We travel to the part in our region that has annual snowfalls. These annual snowfalls coupled with the summer rainfall in the region makes Lesotho the perfect place to gather water for the supply of Gauteng. Our journey takes us from the lowlands and the Basotho Battlefields  all the way to the snow capped mountains where the ski resorts reside. So you may pack your winter woolies, and come and enjoy this experience with me.

 This is a lodge based tour and we stay in Lodge accommodation for the 4 nights. We eat some of the best meals available in Lesotho in the local lodge restaurants.

Driving through the landscape is what makes this so special. Your wide angle lens will be working overtime to capture the breathtaking scenery. The sunsets are spectacular.

There are times when you have to stop and think where you are, as it feels like you are on a different planet.

Richtersveld & West Coast

What a great tour we had in 2017. If you think this is one of those places you might skip, think again. It is one of the most breathtaking tours in our region.

Driving past Pofadder you see the hills in the distance, but it is only when you turn off and in to those hills that you see the magic of the area.

We start our journey in Kakemas and follow the Orange rivere, we visit the Augrabies falls. Then on to Klein Pella, and the Namaqua 4x4 eco trail. In to the Richtersveld and again an area you would not have experienced before. From there down the west coast where we end in Vredendal. From here, a few days later join me on my Passes and parks tour or finish your holiday in Cape town. Thus not a problem should you want to extend your tour and spend a few days in the mother city or do a few wine tours etc.

The tour is towards the end of the blommetjies so we will see a bit of that magic as well.

Join me for this exciting, breathtaking tour of one of our world heritage sites.

Trans Botswana

This remains one of the most popular tours on the calendar. The landscape the animals and the history. We travel on the same routes as the great explorers. We discover what they were looking for and what they found. How does this all fit together.

To unravel this puzzle we start our journey in the south of Botswana. We visit Khama Rhino Sanctuary, the biggest rhino concentration in Botswana, then on to Maun and on to the Okavango Delta. We spend some time in the bush having picnics next to the river, private game drives in the concession area and visit the Moremi. We drive across the legendary bridges and stop for picnic lunches in the bush.

From there North through the Savuti and on the Kasane for a couple of days. We visit Chobe National park . You may cross in to Zimbabwe as a day visitor if you wanted to visit the falls.

Join me for an unforgettable tour.

Central Kalahari Botswana

If you ever wanted to be out in the bush and experience the peace and quiet that nature provide, this is the one.

Couple this with wilderness campsites and unique un spoilt semi desert bushveld, and you have one of those trips that I am excited about a year in advance.

It is not difficult driving, the camping is also easy, so you have no excuse not to join this tour.

Most people have reservations about it being wilderness camps, but I promise you this is the best. My wife is a city girl, always with a hair dryer, and even she says this type of camping is her favourite. It is just different.

We camp only in recognised camp sites, so no bush camping.

The park is known for its predators. Being a semi desert area we will find Gemsbok, Ostrich, Springbok and many other.

This is where you reconnect with the African night sky, watching the camp fire flicker and hearing the soft heartbeat of the real Africa.

We spend the bulk of the tour in the park and thus the tour size is limited and it makes it a bit pricey, but it is one of those experiences you will never forget.

Liuwa is one of those destinations that should be on your bucket list.

It is the second largest wildebeest migration in the world. The summer birds are spectacular and the experience just great.

There are times when you have to stop and think where you are.

Liuwa plains & Kasanka Zambia Wildebeest and Bat migration

This remains one of those special tours, and this year it is going to be even more special.Have you ever heard of the second largest wildebeest Migration in Africa? Have you ever heard of the bat migration in Kasanka? The largest mamal migration in the world? We go on Safari in search of these phenomena.

We start our tour at Kasane in Botswana for our first night. Then through Katima Mulilo and in to Zambia. We travel and sleep next to the Zambezi. We spend 3 nights in Liuwa plains park. With Hyena, cranes and wildebeest everywhere.

Then on to Kafue national park for a bit of rest before we head out to Kasanka.

With 10 million fruit bats migrating in to Kasanka, this is the largest mammal migration in the world.

Once we are done here we head down to Lusaka and Livingstone. Our tour concludes in Kasane Botswana.

Passes and Parks Eastern Cape

We often focus our attention on the areas outside of our country and in the process miss out on what we have, what we know about and yet never visit.

This tour has at its heart this purpose, to visit some of those magical places that we read of and never visit.

I tried to combine the best aspects of the area in a short time to mimic a short break, easy to get to but yet great to use to relax and break away from daily life.

This would include great ocean camp sites, the old seven passes road between George and Knysna, Prince Alfred pass and Uniondale.

Driving and sleeping in the Baviaanskloof down to Jeffreysbay and up to Addo national park and the Bedrogfontein 4x4 trail. Finally ending the journey at the Mountain Zebra national park in Craddock.

You will note this tour is hot on the heals of my Richtersveld tour. So an easy way to get back to Joburg in six nights.

  

A combination of the southern Cape Indian ocean, Knysna forests mountain passes and Wildlife National parks. This tour offers the whole spectrum.

Truly one of the gems of South Africa. Our tour will take the form of an exploration to open the area for tourists. Come with and see what this area offers.

Uganda and Rwanda is a destination not often considered by South Africans. But it is immediately next to the much loved Serengeti. However it is completely different, a new world. Mountainous, heavy forests, rivers and lakes, active volcanoes, wild chimps and gorillas.

  

Our Holiday tour, Zambia, Tanzania,  Rwanda,  Tanganyika, Rwanda, Uganda, Malawi… Gorillas, Chimps, Great lakes, Nile river much more

Once you start travelling in Africa, you realize that there are so much to see in a continent that is laced with cultural history and natural diversity.

That is why we are visiting Rwanda and Uganda for two weeks.

Our journey north will lead us through Zambia past Lake Tanganyika and Tanzania.

We want to see the chimps and Mountain Gorillas, visit lake Victoria, Albert and Edward. Drive through Rwanda, the cleanest country in Africa.

We want to visit the very mountainous, volcanic region in Africa. The edge of the great African tropical forest. We want to experience the people of east and central Africa.   

We want to taste the incredible fresh water Nile Perch.

See the countless birds at the origin of the White Nile at Jinja.

We basically want to become central Africans for two weeks.

We do the tour over December and January as it is good seasons for Gorilla viewing and people have leave available for a long trip..

Where is the Drakensberg? It is probably much bigger than you thought. In KZN? From Mokopane to Cradock?

How did it come to be? I will answer all these questions on our journey through time.

Join me for this tour and drive the full length of this incredible range. We start in a lodge in the Limpopo province. Then on to legendary campsites as we travel down the length of the berg. Pancakes in Graskop, hot springs, the Amphitheater. A crafted beer at the Drakensberg brewery, a Helicopter flight almost touching the mountain if you are up to it.

We also take the opportunity to drive up and down Sani pass and we enjoy a cold one at the top of the pass.

Then the turn as we make our way around Lesotho and in to the Eastern cape where the Drakensberg meet the Cape fold mountains.

Our last night at Mountain Zebra national park in Cradock.

Come and learn more about the origins of the earth and this impressive mountain range.
