Luxury Forest Villa Interior

Spectacular game viewing opportunities are almost guaranteed on the concession that this camp sits adjacent to, and its remoteness, away from the maddening crowd, is what particularly appeals to us here at African Fusion Travel. Ensuring an authentic and exclusive safari experience for our clients, which cannot be over emphasized enough.

The Green season (rainy season) will see incredible bird and insect life but reduced animal sightings. However lodge prices in most cases are dramatically reduced offering really good value.

The High season (dry season) is when animals congregate in vast numbers around the waterholes and National Geographic type scenes are commonplace. This is peak season and lodge prices escalate substantially.

Please feel free to contact us with details of your preferences and allow us the opportunity to discuss which time of year is going to suit you best.
