Looking for an adventure in nature yet with luxurious accommodation? Here is a great option
The thought of a safari adventure may be exciting, being in the cradle of Mother Nature, close to wild beasts and in the midst of exotic wilderness.
However, living or sleeping in safari conditions may not be so appealing to many people.
Now, you can experience the excitement and lush views of the safari while staying in luxurious lodges and camps in Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda or Zambia.
The key philosophy of Sanctuary Retreats is “Luxury naturally”, bringing an authentic bespoke experience to guests, where each adventure is uniquely designed yet with a deep-rooted concern for the natural world. For the traveller, it is like having the best of both worlds in one travel experience.
The Beautiful Green Season
The Green Season runs from November until April and is the time of the year when the brown landscape becomes a lush sea of green. Rainfall is typically in the form of a quick thunderstorm, which usually lasts about an hour or so.
During these months, there is still plenty of sun and there are many wonderful sightings of new-born animals, both big and small, which also increase predator activity. The Green Season is also the perfect time for bird watching as well as photography, with much less dust, crystal-clear air and fantastic sunsets.
Offers & Savings
Sanctuary Retreats also has offers with great savings at their lodges and camps in Botswana and Zambia during the Green Season. It is valid in Botswana at Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp with eight classic safari-style tents in the Okavango Delta; Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero, a luxurious lodge located on the edge of Chobe National Park with 15 thatched cottages, a full spa and treetop treatment room; and at Sanctuary Chief’s Camp in the exclusive Mombo Concession in the Moremi Game Reserve on Chief’s Island.
Daily morning and evening game drives and a variety of activities are available at all the camps during the Green Season including river safaris, bird watching, bush meals, sundowners and walking safaris.
Guests who spend a minimum of six nights at a combination of selected lodges and camps in Botswana and Zambia can take advantage of a special offer of US$450 per person per night. This saves US$310 per person per night at Chief’s Camp and up to US$270 per person per night at the other camps and lodges.
In Zambia, the Green Season offer is available at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma, just 10km upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls, made up of 12 Sussi tree houses connected by wooden walkways set in giant ebony trees. It is also available at Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge in the South Luangwa.
Prices during Green Season for a minimum of six nights at selected lodges start from US$2,700 per person for six nights including all meals and drinks and daily game drives based on two people sharing.
