A remote area of diverse terrain and vegetation. Lake Albert where we hope to find the rare and elusive Schubyll. Semliki Lodge is a haven in the middle of a vast savanna. We stay at the reserve lodge, which is a classic safari lodge, with an open plan and thatched roofs.
On this addition of African Odyssey, we fly into Jeki Air Strip followed by a 40 minute drive to camp observing the dry, wide open savannah. Sausage Tree Camp-Lower Zambezi Valley, Zambia. We camp in rustic tents and enjoy the calmness of strolling along the river in the African bush.
The animals here in the park seem relaxed and worried about poachers. The local lions have a very unique trick, they can climb trees. In the rest of Africa you never see this, and in fact many animals climb trees just to escape lions.
The saline and mineral residue of the Pan and moisture from the summer rains attract an immense number and variety of game animals from the highly endangered black rhino to the elusive tiny damara dikdik and the rare endemic black faced impala.
The dense vegetation of the northern sector of the famed Sabi Sand Reserve provided the perfect cover for the wildlife and it requires all our tracker’s skills to find them as we track elephant and rhino on foot.
The name comes from the african word for two lions.
On this edition of African Odyssey, we travel to the African city of Dares Salaam which sounded interesting and mysterious. A fascinating city, a fusion of African and Arabic cultures.

On this edition of African Odyssey, we head to Kruger National Park. We follow some of the adventures of some of the parks wild residents. The African lion rules here and the prey species like Zebra know how to stay clear of this dangerous predator.
