Itinerary

What's Included?

Pre-Adventure 
We'll help you get ready. Walking Connection Adventure Specialists will help you plan and prepare for an amazing journey. We can make pre and post-stays anywhere in Sub-Saharan Africa. We provide detailed “Know Before You Go” information, including recommended websites, reading lists, packing lists, what to bring, weather, and more. Plus, we're always available to answer questions by email, voice, text, or WhatsApp.

Accommodations

10-Nights of Four and Five Star accommodations await you. Though the star system of rating hotels is always subjective and doesn't accurately relate or apply to remote safari accommodations, our private lodges and camp's warmth and welcoming hospitality make them the best of the best. Double occupancy (two beds) is standard, but Kings are available, and single travelers are always welcome. All come with world-class amenities and services.

 

Food & Beverage
When you think of Nambian cuisine, think of traditional German and Afrikaner cuisine with a local flair.
 Breakfast is hearty; lunch could be a safari picnic or relaxing by the pool. Sundowners on a ridgeline as the sun sets over the distant savannah, and dinners are chef-prepared masterpieces. Always sumptuous, and the only way to go hungry here is to try. Mineral water is provided while on game drives, and all meals are indicated in the itinerary: B-Breakfast, L-Lundn, and D-Dinner. 

 

Hosted, Guided Adventures and Walks
Professionally, safety-accredited interpretive guides are your hosts for the entire adventure. 
 They are full-time residents with a passion for sharing their lives and the places where they live. We'll ford rivers, hike valleys and rolling hills in one of the most remote, pristine forests in Africa. There is space to mo
ve and relax as you experience a "safari massage" during our game drives. Our safari walks are about experiencing the smaller wildlife and landscapes. They are always at your choice. 

 

Safari Casual - Traveling Light - Photography

Preparing for your adventure is the key to a successful holiday. Our packing list and tips will help you bring what you need and as importantly, leave behind what you don't. Many guests memorialize their safari experience with pictures along the way. Whether you're snapping pics with your phone, or an experienced photographer, Gene will share his experience with you to help you get the shots that will bring back memories for years to come.
