Uncharted Africa: Real Adventure with Unreal Style
My incredible adventure with Uncharted Africa took me deep into the Okavango Delta where we would be based for 2 nights to explore and enjoy what the area had to offer. Our private expedition style camp was setup and ready to enjoy. Our individual tents allowed us the comfort of a lantern lit bedroom and open air bathroom. The food was astonishing, utterly delicious and cleverly prepared either on the coals or gas. The chefs in this camp are tested daily with the limitations of their kitchen but it definitely never showed. The game was fantastic. Probably one of my best sightings was finding a female leopard that had been forced up a tree by a pack of wild dog. Our last day in the Moremi, we boarded our boat and gently cruised up the river for a few hours, enjoyed lunch with our feet in the delta and a fantastic mud flight, watched the sun set and after arriving on our own island, a mosquito netted cube was our bedroom for the night where we happily drifted off to sleep under the stars and the hippo gently honking in the background.
A flight into the Makgadikgadi pans was utterly breathtaking. A stark contrast to the lush landscape we had come from but still waiting to dazzle us with visits with an authentic family of bushmen, walking with meerkat and a visit to Chapmans Baobab, an iconic tree in the history of African exploration. Camp Kalahari offers an honest and comfortable experience while Jacks and San camp are utterly gorgeous with no room spared on authentic safari style luxury. Afternoon teas and dinner under the stars are a delight to savor. The Bousfield family have an incredibly unique and adventurous history of exploration and passion for nature. Each one of these camps is a complete original and guarantees the Guest ‘Real Adventure with Unreal Style’.
My experience perfectly summed up with Uncharted Africa’s motto, ” Give them what they never knew they wanted”. More than a month later, I still feel that same energy as I try very hard to put my experience down in just a few words. You will not be disappointed, the experience will change you for the better if you give it the chance. Seeing the zebra and wildebeest migration on the last morning before we left did exactly that.
