See our full list of Where to Go in 2015. On my first-ever trip to South Africa in May 2014, I was lucky enough to explore Cape Town with the newly launched outfitter, Escape + Explore Africa. The team gives active and adventurous visitors a...

Botswana
Located at the northernmost tip of Botswana, Chobe National Park is known for its high density of elephants. You're almost guaranteed to leave this park with a memorable close encounter with a heard. Of course, elephants aren't the only species...

Zimbabwe
Wilderness Safaris has reinvented the classic Zimbabwe safari in Hwange with the opening of the sleek, sophisticated Linkwasha, where herds of elephants, buffalo, and zebras often drink out of a pan just off the pool deck. The nine-suite camp,...

andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, 3936, South Africa
The landscape surrounding Phinda Private Game Reserve is totally different from what you’ll experience in Kruger, Madikwe, or the Kalahari. Here, moisture from the Indian Ocean breathes life into gently rolling hills; flat, grassy wetlands...

Okavango Delta, Botswana
Botswana's Okavango Delta wan't my first trip with andBeyond, but it remains the one etched most deeply into my bank of travel memories. If there’s a vision of a Garden of Eden, the Okavango is surely it. A lush endless land where water meets...

Okavango Delta, Botswana
In my mind, experiential travel always involves education, preferably hands-on, in-your-face education. And this experience was exactly that. I had the rare and wonderful opportunity to witness six highly endangered white rhino being released into...
Save Place
My previous sightings of Leopards had always been from afar (pun intended) but this was my first up close encounter. With her kill right above her, this female leopard was taking some much needed relief from the hot sun with her 2-week old cubs...

Maun, Botswana
While traveling through Botswana, one may experience feelings of lightness, or even the sensation of floating through air. My ride down the Okavango Delta was no different. Which way is up? Who cares, I'm in another world.

This is a guides tour into the wetlands of the delta. We had hoped to see some hippos.

Kalahari Desert Dr, Palm Desert, CA 92211, USA
It’s not always easy to find eco-ethical travel experiences that connect you with a region’s natural and cultural heritage in an authentic, responsible and sustainable manner. So I was thrilled to discover Meno A Kwena Tented Camp, a community...

Botswana
Chobe National Park, in northern Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa, and the most exciting way to experience the park is by boat. The Zambezi Queen and a handful of small-vessel cruises operate along the Chobe River,...

278 Parkway Drive, Cataratas de Victoria, Zimbabwe
Picture a giant kite, with a 10-foot tricycle welded to the struts. Strap on a motorcycle engine, attach a propeller, grab a helmet, and you're ready to go. Not adventurous enough for you? Then how about taking that open-air ramshackle contraption...
Save Place
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
When visiting the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls, The Victoria Falls Hotel is an iconic, historic hotel you have to visit. Pause for a casual meal or a drink at Stanley's Room. The view out to the Rainbow Bridge was spectacular. I can't think...

Safari Lodge, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
If you're spending any time in Victoria Falls, the town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, you have to plan to have a dinner at The Boma. It's a restaurant set within the woods with an all you-can-eat African buffet setup. The highlight is the...
