CRADLE OF HUMANKIND

UNESCO World heritage site

The Cradle of Humankind, one of eight World Heritage Sites in South Africa, and the only one in Gauteng, is renowned as the place where humankind originated. It is here that the first hominid, Australopithecus, was found in 1924 at Taung in the North West Province by Professor Raymond Dart of the University of the Witwatersrand. And is one of the major tourist attractions in South Africa.

The area boasts 13 excavation sites that are recognized as national heritage sites, both internationally and by the South African Heritage Resources Agency. For those wanting to experience the birthplace of humankind firsthand, the official visitor centers for the Cradle of Humankind, Maropeng and the Sterkfontein Caves, are within an easy hour’s drive from Johannesburg.

Recently, the Cradle of Humankind unveiled the partial skeletons of the Australopithecus sediba fossils. These fossils are suspected to be candidates for the transitional species between the southern African ape-man, Australopithecus africanus (of which “the Taung Child” and “Mrs Ples” are examples) and Homo habilis, or even a direct ancestor of Homo erectus. The two skeletons are of an adult female and a young male, recently named “Karabo”, which means “answer” in seTswana.Experts suggest there are more discoveries to be made in Sterkfontein Caves and similar sites in the Cradle of Humankind. Having World Heritage Site status will ensure that the treasures of this area will be protected for many decades to come.

CENTRAL KALAHARI GAME RESERVE

Safari in the Kalahari!

The Central Kalahari game Reserve is the second largest wildlife reserve in the world and most remote reserve in Southern Africa. Large herds of wildebeest, eland, giraffe, hartebeest, springbok and gemsbok can be found in these vast stretches of land with scrub bushes and dwarfed trees. Central Kalahari Game Reserve is home to the second largest group of indigenous hunter-gatherers in Africa - the bushmen or San.

The habitat in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve consists of grasslands, pans, occasional sand dunes and river valleys. There are many Kalahari acacias and Kalahari appleleaf dotted in between the sandveld. With the summer rains, thousands of gemsbok, eland, springbok and wildebeest find their way to the sprouting, sweet grasses from Deception Valley to Piper Pans. The legendary Kalahari black-maned lions and the fact that it is one of the best cheetah viewing sites makes the Central Kalahari Game Reserve a prime spot for wildlife lovers. You should see lion, hyaena, giraffe, warthog, wildebeest, kudu, hartebeest, springbok, gemsbok, eland, jackal, meerkat, crocodile and hippo.

Summer (Oct-Mar) temperatures are scorching. Winter (May-Aug) days are hot (mid 30's) with night-time temperatures at sub-zero. March to October are the best times to go. The mass migration is best enjoyed after the summer rains.

The desert landscape is home to specially adapted predators such as lion, brown hyena and honey badger. Antelope including springbok and oryx eke out an existence in this harsh desert. Plant life is incredibly interesting in their adaptations to little water and excessive sunlight, thorns provide shade and protection against predation.
Seven spacious safari tents with twin or double beds feature en-suite bathrooms. The luxurious tents are complete with indoor and outdoor showers, hot and cold running water and flush toilets. Families may book the spacious two-bedroomed tent which shares a spacious en-suite bathroom.

Bird watching enthusiasts are in for a special treat! This area is home to over 200 different bird species including the Kori Bustard and Crimson Breasted Shrike and a high concentration of Pale Chanting Goshawks.

Featuring water holes all year round result in fantastic photographic opportunities either from the safari vehicle, on foot or from one of several hides.

THE OKAVANGO DELTA

Safari in the magnificent Okavango Delta!

Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over16,000 square km in flood and shrinking to less than 9,000 square km in the dry season. It is a lush water-wilderness of papyrus swamps, shallow reed-beds and floodplains, dotted with islands and laced with a network of channels. Trapped in the parched Kalahari sands the fresh water oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique wilderness. The fragile ecosystem remain one of the world’s unspoilt and beautiful wildernesses where a vast diversity of animals and birds can be seen. All this makes for amazing wildlife sightings

Interesting fact: The Okavango Delta is relatively new in geological terms—only a meagre 60 000 years old.Before the formation of the delta, for some two million years, the Okavango River flowed right through Botswana and drained into a massive lake somewhere in the region of the Makgadikgadi pans in Botswana

Rivers are hard-coded to flow towards big bodies of water like lakes and seas. But then about 50 000 years ago, there was a massive earthquake in Southern Africa. The land near today’s border between Botswana and Namibia shifted, interrupting the Okavango’s usual, obedient flow.It was a shock to the river’s system. The water had no choice. 11 trillion litres spilled out into the desert like oil in a pan, flooding a vast area with a steady torrent of fresh H2O.One awkward geological twist of fate had created the greatest natural oasis on earth—the Okavango Delta.

The Delta area has been split up into private reserves where the game viewing is available only to resident guests. As a result, the Okavango offers some of the most exclusive game viewing area in Africa. The heart of the Okavango is the Moremi, a public park that is particularly busy in areas but is also home to the Mombo concession, a wildlife area regarded by many as the best in the world. Not only is the location one of the most beautiful, and the wildlife so rich, but it is also home to some of the most exclusive and sought-after safari lodges on the continent.

The Okavango Delta is home to thousands of different species of plants and animals. Here, you'll find over 400 species of birds, nearly 200 species of mammals, and over 150 species of reptiles!

Okavango Delta Luxury Camp

Safari in the Okavango Delta!

The Camp is set in the south western delta amongst grass covered islands formed by fertile eroded termite hills dotted with fig, palm and jackal berry trees. The area encompasses a necklace of islands on the Xudum River, northeast of Pom Pom lagoon and is incredibly picturesque with winding waterways meandering through open lagoons.

The waterways are lined with reeds and dotted with papyrus and tree islands in this picturesque and tranquil part of the delta. As water levels vary throughout the year so does the focus of activities. The camp managers will advise guests on the best options during their stay. A wide variety of game frequent the islands around camp including impala, lechwe, leopard, lion and elephant and you may be lucky to see sitatunga whilst boating.
Birding all year round is exceptional with regular sightings of Pels Fishing Owl amongst many others. The Camp is one of the few camps in the Delta to have access to a private heronry where many migratory water birds come to nest from July onwards. Birds you will encounter at the heronry include marabou, yellow-bill and open-bill storks. The sight of thousands of nesting birds is mesmerizing and an experience you will not forget.

This traditional camp has an intimate and personal atmosphere, built among spectacular shady trees of ebony, acacia and sausage tree. It offers eight large safari style tents and a family unit equipped with tasteful furnishings and private en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge area is on raised decking encircling the trees and offers a dining and sitting area, a cocktail bar and a refreshing plunge pool. On a three night or longer stay, guests can pre-book the sleep out deck, affording a chance to spend a memorable night out under the superb African skies (weather permitting).

ACTIVITIES
Activities include day and night game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, game viewing on mokoro excursions, guided walks, fishing, motor boating and sunset cruises.
