African sunsets

Sunset is always a magical time in Africa and none more than when on safari. These pics were taken on various nights that were spent on the Chobe River during our latest Botswana and Vic Falls overland safari.
We will be running another of these unique 14 day overland trips in 2018, starting on Sunday 13th May. Beginning and ending at Johannesburg airport we first travel through to Botswana and the Okavango Delta, before the Moremi and Chobe National Parks, ending in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls with a flight back to Johannesburg.
Register your interest now for this exclusive trip, we have limited places available, so early booking is recommended.

Morning meeting but what is on the agenda.

Wherever we travel on safari, primates are usually entertaining. Whether it be Baboons or cheeky Vervet monkeys in Southern Africa, Gorillas and Chimps in Uganda. Or as seen above Langur monkeys in India.
We came across this morning meeting in the Pench National Park. Who knows what was on the agenda.

Victoria Falls special for our clients

Whether you wish to include a Victoria Falls excursion in one of our safaris, or stand alone trip, it is undoubtedly one of the wonders of the natural world, which everyone should try to visit.
There is  a footpath that follows the contour of the falls on the opposite bank, which offers some great views. However, the view from the air is something very special as can be seen from the pics. Short helicopter trips are available every day, and On Track Safaris is now able to offer a special discount rate for a chance in a lifetime helicopter ride over the falls.
Check out our website or contact Carol for more information.

Photographic safaris

I'm often asked, whether we cater for photographic safaris. It's a question that has (in the past) given me pause to think. What exactly is the difference between a photographic safari and any other form of safari? After all, we specialise in wildlife and enabling our safari guests to view wild creatures, ethically, in their natural environment.
Whether through binoculars, a lens, or just enjoying watching, viewing wildlife is what we do.

Of-course, our guides are all experienced photographers in their own right and understand the needs of dedicated photographers.
Whether in India or Africa our aim is to show you the huge variety of wildlife. From Lions to Tigers. Its what e do.

Overland Botswana

We're on the penultimate leg of our overland Botswana safari. Great sightings and country all along the journey from the Okavango Delta through the Moremi and Chobe National Parks. We mix nights spent in lodges with wild camping in roof top tents.
Above two of our guests are enjoying watching an Elephant walking close to camp.

Fantastic Indian Lodges

Whether in Africa or India, we hand pick all of the safari lodges that we include in our safaris. We select small intimate venues that offer luxury as well as a green ethos.
Tree house lodge in Pench, India is a great example. Five tree houses set in the grounds surrounding the main dining room and bar (seen below). Each designed to utilise local crafts and resources and employing a minimum of 75% local staff.

BMW a magnificent Tiger

Meet BMW, a huge male Tiger who resides in Pench National Park India.
Apparently, his stripe pattern includes a BMW!
I spent some time with this cat on our last Indian safari and to be honest, couldn't make out a BMW shape, but regardless, BMW is a magnificent Tiger. It was an absolute privilege to spend a morning in his company watching him moving regularly from shade to a waterhole.
Be there and enjoy Indian wildlife for yourself. Join one our Indian Safaris for memories that will last a lifetime.

Banyan Tree

The Banyan Tree is found throughout central India and there are many examples within the National Parks that we visit on safari.
The example above is one tree, which is constantly growing outwards as branches dip to the ground and root. Some grow to a circumference of 100m!

Tigers and Leopards

It will come as no surprise that as with all On Track Safaris, we are keen to find leopards, wherever we are. In this case Indian Leopards.
Tigers and Leopards, who could ask for more. Join us on an Indian Safari.
