Sanctuary Retreats Botswana


OPENING 1 JUNE 2011

Sanctuary Retreats presents a walking safari like no other. Now you can explore the pristine wilderness of the South Luangwa – the home of the walking safari – with one of Zambia’s most experienced expert guides, whilst enjoying luxurious tent accommodation and fine dining. This is the ultimate bush adventure by foot, without forsaking personalised service or comfort.

The concentration of wildlife around camp is simply awe-inspiring. On the plains zebra, antelope, buffalo and puku congregate in vast numbers alongside endemic species such as the Thornicroft’s giraffe, Crawshay’s zebra and Cookson’s wildebeest. Predators such as lion, leopard and the elusive wild dog are often seen tracking their quarry and the rivers and tributaries are teeming with hippo, elephant and crocodile. A safari by foot also ensures that one can see many of the 400 species of birds found in the area as well as the rarely seen but fascinating “Little Five” (rhino beetle, buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise and ant lion).

Sanctuary Zebra Plains is located in a particularly beautiful and untouched area of the South Luangwa, perched on a sand bank at the confluence of the Luangwa and Chibembe Rivers. There are just four traditional tents – two doubles and two twins. The camp accommodates a maximum of six guests, allowing for an intimate exploration of the South Luangwa. All tents have real beds, campaign furniture, mosquito nets, en suite facilities and flush toilets. Water for al fresco showers is mixed to your preferred temperature by a tent attendant. The main mess tent has a dining area although most of the meals will be served in the open in carefully selected vantage points. There is also a small library and bar area.

This is a seasonal camp operating from June to October each year and will open for the first time on June 1, 2011. Sanctuary Zebra Plains has been designed to leave the lowest possible carbon footprint and will be packed up completely each year with no trace that it was ever there between seasons.

In order to fully explore the South Luangwa, guests will spend three nights at Sanctuary Zebra Plains with set departures on Monday or Thursday. There is an option of combining  combining a walking safari with a stay at Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp or Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge, also in the park. These permanent properties offer morning and evening game drives, the perfect complement to Sanctuary Zebra Plains.

Sanctuary Retreats camps are spectacularly located in some of truly unspoilt areas spread out across Africa, with the highlight this time being on the ones in the beautiful Botswana. Sanctuary Retreats has a collection of luxury safari lodges in  the Okavango Delta, Chief’s Island and Chobe National Park, which are arguably the most important areas for game viewing in Botswana. The properties are perfectly located in secluded and pristine wildlife-rich areas with amazing game viewing opportunities. Each area offers a unique experience and game viewing opportunity and as such it is always advisable to combine your stay with various lodges for a comprehensive Botswana experience.

One good thing to note is that Sanctuary Retreats is offering reduced rates for those who stay in Africa and would ‘love‘ to visit Botswana for an affordable trip of a lifetime (proof of residency is required). This is a good opportunity to visit their camps and make use of this special offer.
