African Safari Camps Exciting us for 2017

Some things never change. Or do they?

Our team get excited for anything safari – so when brand new safari camps are unleashed, we’re keen to ensure they fit Captured In Africa – so our carefully selected camps & lodges must be responsible to the area, local people and wildlife they inhabit.

Our team have drawn up a quick-fire 4-of-the-best safari camps to book in 2017, in some of the very best areas, with outstanding wildlife experiences.

So why not enjoy them?

Go on, you know you want to…


“phenomenal” Okavango Delta area

Situated on the edge of the Gomoti river system is Gomoti Plains Camp. This brand new camp has 10 luxury tents which include 2 luxury family tents and 8 luxury double tents, all with en-suite bathroom facilities.
