One of the greatest safari destinations in Africa, blessed with its natural abundance of wildlife. A place where wild creatures roam and rule, where big cats and much bigger elephants walk free in one of the world's last great wildernesses. Explore the beauty of the desert or camp in a 4WD vehicle where you may lie awake at night listening to lions roar their bone-trembling roar, or hippos, elephants, or the chilling saw-like grunt of a leopard.
