A country of incredible natural beauty, Brazil is the largest country in all of Latin America with more than 8.5 million people and spanning over 8.5 million kilometers. Yet lying amidst Brazil’s huge cities and miles and miles of land, lie sprawling mountain ranges, massive forests and huge tracts of farmland. Currently, there are 69 national parks in Brazil exhibiting incredible flora and fauna and impressive rock formations. The Brazilian Amazon alone is home to more animal and plant species than anywhere else in the world. In addition to its national parks, Brazil also shares a number of reserves and protected areas just waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
Come visit Botswana with us, where a high-end safari is synonymous with luxury…and luxury is not just about the décor in your room or the facilities in camp, but also about staying in incomparable locations in the best game viewing areas in the country. It is about immersion in remoteness, intoxicating sunsets, endless horizons, mokoro trips along narrow, reed-lined channels, herds of elephants, packs of wild dogs, and lions stalking their prey. It is about near exclusivity with rarely another visitor in sight when staying in private reserves and concessions. Upscale safari camps subtly blend elegance with adventure, huge herds of game roam freely between the plains of the Kalahari and the waterways of the Okavango, and vast expanses of pristine wilderness are protected by some of the strictest conservation policies in the world.
