Gorgeous Botswana

We work in only the best wilderness areas of Botswana, from the flat, arid savannah of the Kalahari Desert, which makes up the majority of Botswana, to the wondrous Okavango Delta that lies over it; this “wetland in a desert” is home to huge diversity of fauna and flora. In the north-east, the Chobe and Linyanti reserves are renowned for their predators and large concentrations of game

Awe-Inspiring Namibia

Namibia is a country of astonishing contrasts aptly named after the Namib – the oldest desert on the planet, and which creates a sea of red sand along the Atlantic coastline. Namibia is celebrated for its vast open landscapes, infinite supply of blue skies, sun-drenched weather and star-filled nights. Over the years, there have been a number of cultural influences that have all added to the unique atmosphere of Namibia making it a unique place to experience an African safari

Home of The Lion King, Kenya

One of Kenya’s most spectacular geological features is the Great Rift Valley which passes through the country, while its biodiversity is equally fascinating. Endless savannah plains and scorched deserts are interrupted by snow-capped mountains, cool highlands and equatorial forests. Annually, the country plays host to the remarkable African safari phenomenon of the wildebeest migration, the largest single movement of herd animals on the planet

Ancient Zimbabwe and Zambia

Two major rivers form the northern and southern boundaries of Zimbabwe: the great Zambezi cuts along its northern frontier, while the languid Limpopo forms the southern border with South Africa. Zambia is situated mainly on an expansive central plateau, and boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers. Explore areas such as Hwange National Park, Mana Pools, Victoria Falls and the ancient lands of Kafue

Tropical Paradise, Rwanda

Situated in the heart of the Albertine Rift, Rwanda is one of Africa’s most biodiverse regions, a haven of rainforest endemism with its most celebrated wild mammal being the iconic mountain gorilla of the Virungas Massif. A densely populated country with a predominantly rural population, Rwanda is known for the trauma of the 1994 genocide, as well as for its courageous recovery to become a stable, well-run and united country. Such optimistic energy has earned the country the moniker “Remarkable Rwanda” as well as a fast-growing number of enamoured followers flocking there for an unforgettable African safari

FAQ's

Best Country For Me?

Botswana

With one of the richest pack densities in Africa, Botswana has an amazing variety of animals. It is the perfect destination for big game lovers, adventurers and wildlife photographers alike. For a first African safari venue, besides Kruger Park, it is our pick for sure

Namibia

Namibia is the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa. Due to this, there are many rare and specialist species of animals that can be seen regularly here as well as the general game and big 5 species that make an African safari so popular. This country is perfect for seasoned safari goers, landscape, star and wildlife photographers as well people with a sense of adventure

Kenya

Kenya has much land area devoted to wildlife habitats, including the Masai Mara, where over 1 million blue wildebeest and other bovids participate in a large-scale annual migration every year between June and September. Perfect for wildlife photographers as the animal density is huge and due to the open grassland that dominates most of the reserves the chances of getting clear shots with great backgrounds are high

Zimbabwe and Zambia

These countries are very similar in terms of animals and landscapes, both of which share views of Victoria Falls. The two game reserves we work in, namely Hwange and Kufue are absolutely beautiful with gorgeous landscapes and good populations of general game including the Big 5, Wild Dog and Cheetah. Mana Pools is a very special place in Africa and offers exceptional game viewing in a very private and exclusive area. If experiencing an ancient Africa where animals still run wild is your idea of an African safari, look no further

Rwanda

Rwanda has a temperate tropical highland climate, with lower temperatures than are typical for equatorial countries because of its high elevation. The national parks are dominated by montane forest which is home to an estimated one-third of the worldwide mountain gorilla population and thirteen primate species including chimpanzees and Ruwenzori colobus. This is not an African mammal / Big 5 safari destination, however if  gorgeous forests and magnificent Gorilla viewing is something on your bucket list this beautiful and now safe country is a must

Visa Info?

There are many websites that have information about visas to the African countries we work out of. The rules and regulations change constantly and as such, please contact your embassy directly to get the correct information at the time of your booking… This will make sure you get the correct info from a reputable source

How Much Will This Cost?

Moriti is a very unique, specialised safari business… Due to the fact that we tailor-make all our itineraries specifically from guest to guest, a fair idea of cost online is not possible. We need to know exactly what you want so we can quote you accordingly because a set itinerary may not work for you. The relationships that we have with our destinations is very special to us and will always stay a secret to only but a few (psssst, that’s your cue!)

Requesting a quote from Moriti’s site will always result in a better rate for you, try us!

Payment and Currency?

We accept all major credit cards and can organise EFT payments as well

While facilities vary by country, it’s not required to bring thousands of dollars in cash into Africa. Facilities in Africa have improved dramatically in recent years, and it’s now possible to pay by Visa and Mastercard at most lodges. Currency exchanges and ATMs are available at most airports

Best Time For Me to Go?

Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia

The winter dry season in Southern Africa is between May and October and this is when game viewing is at its best, especially at the end of the season. It’s often cold at night during mid-winter but daytime temperatures are mild and the risk of malaria is at its lowest. By no means should you discount the rest of the year. The summer wet season is between December and March, a hot and sometimes humid period with short but intense bursts of rain. The Southern African landscape is beautifully green at this time of year, the bird watching is exceptional, and many animals give birth, offering a special game viewing experience, not least when marauding predators move in for an easy kill

Kenya

Most Kenya safari destinations are at their best between January and the end of March when the climate is mild and dry and game viewing is at its peak. However, for the migration you’ll need to go between mid-August and late October when the herds have returned

Rwanda

Gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda is a year-round activity but if you’re hiking the rainforests, you’ll certainly appreciate the drier and cooler months of January and February and again from June to September

Travel?

We will provide transport between the lodges and to / from main airports in each country as part of the itinerary. You would need to organise your own flights to the major airports within each country via a travel agent or indeed online

What to Pack?

  • Hats, sunblock, insect repellent and sunglasses
  • Swimming costume as the lodges have pools
  • Something warm for the game drives during the winter months
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Camera and binoculars
  • Any electrical charges you may need. We run on 220 volts
  • Any medication you need

Health & Safety?

Vaccinations

In Africa, things change constantly. As such, so do rules and regulations. Make sure you ask your doctor about vaccinations before coming to Africa and make sure you specify which countries you will be visiting

Malaria

We have written a comprehensive blog post about malaria to keep you in the know. Please click Malaria Info for more info

Snakes

There are many snake species found in Africa, only 10 of which are regarded as deadly. You may be lucky enough to see them living their daily lives out in the bush… Please be aware though that these creatures are very scared of humans and if left alone, pose very little threat to you. If ever one gets too close for comfort, never lash out, that is what we are here for

Ticks

Ticks are often seen in the summer months hanging off grass stems looking for a tasty animal to latch onto. We do encounter them on walks occasionally and suggest you bring insect repellent and wear long pants and boots on our walks

Tipping Info?

Tipping is a general practice in South Africa. A large number people in the tourism industry that serve you get a salary, but are encouraged to deliver a better service to increase their income from tipping

Here is some information on tipping in South Africa

  • In restaurants, 10% to 15% is the accepted tipping standard on the bill amount
  • Petrol attendants at gas stations – from R5 up
  • Porters at airports – between R5 and R10 per luggage
  • Hotel porters – between R10 to R20 per porter service
  • Rangers and trackers – between R200 to R300 or more per day for both
  • Site guides (e.g. a guide at an activity) – R100 per person
  • Guides – anything between R200 to R300 per day, but R300 is the norm

Please be aware that this is a guideline and you should never feel obliged to tip anyone… It is your discretion and thoughts on the service you have received that should govern your tips

Food and Drink?

Food and drink play a huge role in any vacation. On an African safari, they often find the lasting blend between old-world tradition and modern culinary influence. The sense of wilderness isn’t interrupted as you dine beneath the stars, a fire crackling and nocturnal animals calling and moving around. Menus are unique, blending local ingredients – sometimes those you won’t find served anywhere else in the world – with an international focus, perfectly delivered. Each lodge will also have a well stocked bar, so in short, you will be well looked after

Hygiene?

Sometimes it’s hard to picture. You’re heading deep into the bush, a hundred miles from a tarred road or town. There’s going to be no running water. You’re going to be far from a borehole and just can’t imagine how you have a wash. And a shower? In such remote wilderness? Rest assured that each lodge has clean water and varied amenities depending on the lodge you choose
