Africa + Indian Ocean


    Experience otherworldly scenery from the skies…

    There are times in Namibia when the landscape literally takes your breath away: along the mystical and haunting Skeleton Coast; overlooking the vast and wild Fish River Canyon; amongst the roaring sand dunes of Sossusvlei. There are places where the peace is so deep and the colours so astonishing that the only response can be silence.

    In our opinion, one of the best ways to see this spectacular country is from the air – whether on a bespoke flying safari over several days, or a scenic flight from one desert camp to another.

    But Namibia is more than just scenery: the rocks of the central plateau are a blueprint for evolution; the Himba tribes provide an insight into some of the world’s last nomadic peoples, and the desert of Damaraland gives a glimpse of some of the strangest wildlife adaptations on Earth.

    cazenove+loyd was born in Africa and we believe that the African safari is a trip that everyone should take at least once in their lives. No two safaris are ever the same, but to ensure that the holiday is as memorable as it should be, you need an expert.
    In all of the regions in which we work throughout the world, securing the most inspiring guides is our highest priority. Below we have highlighted some of our favourites, who we have known for years and who embody the qualities we look for when choosing a guide for our clients.
    I remember when I first joined cazenove+loyd, Susie Cazenove talking to me about some of her most memorable trips in Africa. This is how I first came to hear about the Schoemans and their adventurous flying safaris along Namibia’s remote Skeleton Coast.
    Having just returned from a spectacular couple of weeks in South Africa, I was struck yet again by the array of incredible experiences in Africa and the vast distances that separate them. Having travelled around Africa for the past 30 years, I was once again blown away by the quality, service and genuine friendliness of everyone I met.
    Our Destination Experts have Africa in their blood and want all of our clients to fall in love with the place they have spent their lives exploring. They are passionate about all aspects of the Africa experience and revel in each destination’s nuances and undiscovered pockets.
    When most think of safaris, they think game-drives. But in addition to those thrilling drives, there are so many other incredible ways to experience Africa. Here are just a handful of the awe-inspiring experiences we can arrange in Africa.
    Written by Cara Maitland, Destination Expert
    With its prolific wildlife and diverse landscapes, including wild coasts, deserts, canyons and mountains, Namibia is thrilling to explore. At nearly, 825,500sq km, the country is vast, but on my recent eight-day journey there, I enjoyed a fantastic overview of some of the wonders that are on offer.
