Many people are asking us if it is advisable to visit Cape Town due to the drought. Yes, Cape Town is very much open for business, and the city is looking as beautiful as ever. The feared “Day Zero” has now been cancelled altogether. We do ask everyone visiting to just please try and conserve water as much as possible. Your hotel will have full guidelines as to how best to do your part. Having just returned from the city though, we can confirm it is business as usual at the southern tip of Africa!

- If you are considering a trip to see the gorillas in Uganda, best plan for 2019, as virtually all high season permits for 2018 are sold out. Since Rwanda increased their gorilla trekking permits to $1,500.00 Uganda has seen a spike in demand. But hurry, the 2019 permits will sell out soon!
- Heavy rainfall over northern Namibia and the catchment area of the Kunene River has meant the river has burst its banks. The result has been damage to some of of the lodges along the river. Once the waters recede we will be able to update the situation and provide lodge re-opening dates.
- Disruption to travel through much of Kenya. The long rains have arrived early in Kenya, and with considerable force, causing widespread flooding in many parts of the country. Some properties have been completely destroyed and some of the airstrips are temporarily out of action.
- Cape Town drought update! It has been announced, that thanks to incredible water savings by the people of Cape Town, that the city will now not run out of water as feared. The dreaded “Day Zero” has now been cancelled, although strict water restrictions remain in place to ensure no wastage of this precious resource.

A smarter way to do safari
There was a time you when you travelled, that you went to a travel agent, looked at a brochure they gave you and booked your pre-determined, one size fits all package. To a degree, this is still the case. For the most part however, the way we travel has changed fundamentally over the last decade, and now everything is available online at the touch of a button. However, when travelling in Africa, what may seem simple online, in reality may be a very different story. Rather let us arrange your safari adventure. With over half a century’s experience of selling safaris across Africa under our belts, we are perfectly equipped to find the right fit for your individual needs and make it happen effortlessly!
