Wildlife at Your Window

There’s Hardly a Need to Leave Camp with our Spectacular Wildlife Centric Properties

With Journeysmiths’, the wild is at your window, meaning you can throw away your alarm clock. It’s the birds who will decide when you should rise and shine, and they’ll tell you in no uncertain terms! Wandering down for breakfast, you might well have to pause if there is an elephant or kudu on the path, and even once you’ve sat down with your morning coffee, there’s a risk that a passing giraffe might stop by and steal your croissant.

The lodges and camps with the closest wildlife encounters are usually on private concessions or reserves which have a high concentration of birds and game. The wildlife has become accustomed to the presence of a small number of guests, so animals will go about their day completely unconcerned that you are there.
 
Often, these properties have been situated by a watering hole so the wildlife at your window is guaranteed. Elsewhere, such as at the Polar Bear Cabins, they’re situated at a strategic crossing point so you can sit just metres away from the polar bear, behind the protective glass.

Accommodation:
Polar Bear Cabins
Polar Bear Cabins are designed to get you as close as humanly possible to the bear. As you gaze into this surreal landscape with the northern lights painting the night sky in shimmering ribbons of colour, you will know you have arrived in a wildlife and photography enthusiasts’ heaven.
Accommodation:
Giraffe Manor
If there’s one hotel your kids have heard of in Africa, it is probably Giraffe Manor. One of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings, it has its own resident population of giraffe who know no bounds of personal space, and are famous for sticking their heads through the window at breakfast time.
Accommodation:
Mombo Camp
A stylish, island haven at the heart of the Okavango Delta. Mombo Camp is on the northern tip of Chief’s Island and is in a well-renowned wildlife hotspot, with spectacular sightings of leopard and lion as well as endless views across the floodplains and islands.
Accommodation:
Zarafa Dhow Suite
While Botswana is known for being the home of Africa’s most exclusive safari, Zarafa Camp’s Dhow Suites are the most exclusive accommodation in Botswana. These exclusive-use suites revel in palatial luxury, surrounded by the natural beauty of the private Selinda Reserve.
Accommodation:
Lagarta Lodge
Hotel Lagarta Lodge is a boutique eco-lodge on the attractive Nicoya Peninsula, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Set in a luxuriant private nature reserve, the atmosphere is supremely relaxing and the views are simply glorious.
Accommodation:
Silver Galapagos
The Silver Galapagos is the smallest ship in Silversea’s family of exclusive cruise ships. There are 75 crew onboard to service the 100 guests, and the national park certified guides will lead you on an action packed programme that includes hiking, snorkeling, and Zodiac safaris.
Accommodation:
Sujan Jawai
Sujan Jawai - a Relais & Chateaux property in a leopard rich wilderness - takes luxury to a whole other level. An Indian maharaja would be fortunate to call this tented camp home. It’s a property completely in balance with its ecosystem, with a light, sustainable environmental footprint.
