Mozambique Cyclone floods Kruger

Mozambique Cyclone floods Kruger | EjAfrica Resource | Scoop.it

The Kruger National Park, and especially areas surrounding Hoedspruit, have had excessively high rainfall over the last 2 days as a result of a cyclone centred around Southern Mozambique.

Access to many lodges has been severely compromised and no charter flights have been able to operate, with many road transfers operating with difficulty.

Some lodges on the banks of the river have had to be evacuated.

The islands in Mozambique are experiencing strong winds and heavy rain and we are discouraging clients from travelling there for the next day.

As there are a high number of guests affected, we are working through every affected traveller on a per case basis and making necessary alternative arrangements where necessary. Your consultant will be in touch directly if your clients are affected with arrangements that have been made for them.

The weather is slowly clearing and is expected to cease tomorrow. A further assessment on lodges and access will be made then and an update will be sent. At the moment future bookings to the area are being treated as normal and unaffected.

Cheetahs on your Doorstep at Joy’s Camp- Kenya |

Cheetahs on your Doorstep at Joy’s Camp- Kenya | | EjAfrica Resource | Scoop.it

A guest once described Joy’s Camp in the Shaba National Reserve, Kenya as, “a paradise among the acacia trees.” It is a place laden with history and stories as well as being an oasis within a dry, dramatic African landscape. If the idea of relaxing at this luxury tented camp, watching wildlife drink just meters away from you and experiencing bushveld sounds, smells and sights which will fill you with a sense of wonder doesn’t lure you towards the camp, then maybe the tale of cheetah relaxing on the doorstep of one of the tents will.

Charlotte who runs the marketing for the camp shared a story that will have you packing your bags to get to this amazing wild place in an instant. She told of a cheetah encounter Stefano Cheli, the owner of the camp, experienced. Just the other morning, he woke to find this stunning cat relaxing just outside his tent and managed to snap some pictures to prove it. This is evidence of the absolute natural wildness the camp is set within. Stefano was able to sit back and relax in his tented bedroom for a good while, revelling in the opportunity to watch a wild cheetah go about its morning routine, undisturbed.

Other recent occurrences have included lion being heard and seen very close to the camp and leopards prowling around during dinner. The guests have taken home memories of these moments and others which will stay with them forever.

The camp is set on the grounds of Joy Adamson’s tented home. She was the famous naturalist and is best remembered as the author of “Born Free” and “Queen of Shaba”. Guests find themselves immersed in a Kenyan wilderness, accommodated in 10 spacious en suite tents with all the comforts of home inside and chic local decor too. Responsible tourism practices are upheld by the camp and staff with solar power used for heating and lighting in all rooms.

Guests can expect to see elephants, leopard, lion, buffalo, the rare Beisa Oryx, reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra to name but a few. Guided game drives, bush walks and bush breakfasts are a few of the activities available to guests; all of which expose them to the secluded reserve complete with its idyllic gorges, springs, hilled and desert regions.

Your tent at Joy’s Camp is calling your name and the memories await.

NYT: 45 place to go in 2012 Tanzania is number 7! | EjAfrica Resource | Scoop.it

7. Tanzania Coming into its own as an upscale safari destination. For the last several years the number of tourists going to Tanzania has been edging up, according to East African travel specialists like Hippo Creek Safaris and Abercrombie & Kent. But it wasn’t until several violent attacks on visitors to neighboring Kenya that the numbers really took off, as Tanzania started to absorb skittish Kenya-bound safari seekers. Not that Tanzania is coasting along solely on Kenya’s troubles; it’s always had Mount Kilimanjaro, after all. And now other attractions are being discovered, too — places likeGibb’s Farm, a small lodge from which guests can hike to the Ngorongoro Crater area, a prime destination for big game viewing. In addition, the opening of exclusive safari reserves like the Singita Grumeti and the upscale camps managed by Nomad Tanzaniaand Chem Chem are evidence that the country’s tourist infrastructure is becoming more sophisticated, perhaps even catching up to Kenya’s.
