From Victoria Falls to Cape Town on Safari! Many times clients travel with us on an African Safari and make their own personal blog/website containing images and memories… Keith and Steve went on our Northern Experience Safari which took them from Victoria Falls all the way to Cape Town on a 20 day adventure. Our Northern Experience Safari is now a 22 day safari and includes a few different highlights. They went on our safari in 2004 and still speak very highly of it… even to the point that he would use Jenman on his next Africa Safari!
We (Elana from the Sales Department and Wiebke from the Product Department) were very privileged to recently embark on an educational journey highlighting the Caprivi Strip in Namibia, the Western Okavango Delta in Botswana, as well as Livingstone in Zambia. Together with our trusted tour guide, Thomas Dhilwayo, this proved to be an awesome and eventful experience…
Bright and early on Friday morning (21 Nov) we met up at Cape Town Airport (well, one of us was a little late due to oversleeping) for our flight to Johannesburg. We then boarded the aircraft to Livingstone, where we arrived just after lunchtime. Thomas and our trusted vehicle, Endesha (and we will get back to this later), met us at the airport and off we went for our first three site inspection of this trip.
The second part of the review is here! This is by the same client (Marden Phelps) as our prior blog and was also featured on African Safari Journals! This part contains all the reviews about the accommodation, the meals and their disappointments AND highlights of the tour with Jenman Safaris. Read the unedited review below…
Pioneer Camp near Lusaka, Zambia. Nice chalet with well kept grounds. A variety of fruit trees and flowers…..
During the evening boat ride at Chobe we saw over two hundred elephants at one time. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. They would come down the hill and into the river in herds of twenty to fifty and just frolic and play.
There was one young calf that kept plopping down in the mud and getting stuck. The older elephants would help him out and he would run right back in and get stuck again. We watched the sun go down and took some amazing photos of elephants against the setting sun.
Finally… here is part 2 of the Great Trans African Safari (that Laurina took a group of safari travellers around on)… we are sure that you have been eagerly awaiting to read the second part of this holiday adventure and here it is! This takes you from day 12 until the very end… Most of … Read moreSkinnymarinky dinky doo – Memories of the Great-Trans African Safari with Laurina and her safari group! PART 2…
Almost 1 year ago to the day, Laurina (one of our sales consultants/tour guide) took a fabulous group of travellers on safari – on the Great-Trans African Safari … which took them all around Namibia, Botswana and Zambia on a 22 day adventure. Down the line, this group decided to email Laurina day-by-day accounts of their safari – exactly one year ago to the day it turned out to be! You may be asking why the title has ‘Skinnymarinky dinky doo’ in it…. Well you will read about some of it in this blog – but read Part 2 to find out why this song is so special to Laurina!

Just a note before the excitement wears down. We had an incredible adventure on the trip through Southern Africa. We covered a lot of kilometres but we experienced so much variety. Just when we had a very long hot day in the vehicle, the lodge at the end of the day was delightful.
The lodge staff was always very accommodating. The trip crisscrossing the countries gave us a lot of insight to how people live, what the countryside looks like, wild animals on the side of the road as we see cattle at home. The vehicle was comfortable.
When I arrived at the small airport of Livingstone I could immediately feel the change of climate. The air was hot and humid and I felt like I had stepped into another world! From the airport, I was transferred to the Zambezi Waterfront Lodge, which is only a few km’s away. The very next morning we departed from the Zambezi Waterfront at 9am on the dot – we quickly left Livingstone behind us and were off to Botswana Wildlife Breakaway Adventure!
