Simon King Wildlife Travel

In partnership with The Unpackaged Travel Company (ATOL 6195), I run a select number of wildlife holidays each year.

These are based in some of the most spectacular locations around the globe, and draw on my experiences in the field.

Wild Zambia with Simon King

 

Wednesday 11 October to Saturday 21 October 2017

 

The Nsefu sector is Simon’s favourite region of South Luangwa. It has very low numbers of human visitors but a huge wealth of wildlife. Simon has witnessed leopard, lion and wild dog kills in the open areas, and spectacular encounters with elephant, hippo, crocodile and the huge variety of birds that frequent the region. These include dazzling carmine bee eater colonies that nest in the high banks of the river – a sight and sound that stays with you for ever. These are some of the reasons he keeps returning to this destination to make films. This is also why he has chosen to share this spectacular wilderness with you.

 

Nsefu Camp, run by Robin Pope Safaris, has been Simon and his team’s base for film shoots in South Luangwa and he has come to know, admire and trust the staff and infrastructure there. The food is good, the service friendly and accommodating, the guides and scouts knowledgeable and the opportunity for adventure, ever present.

 

In addition to game drives, by day and night, to watch the great predators, elephants and other magical wildlife of the region you will have the opportunity to go on walking safaris and use purpose built hides – getting that little bit closer to the atmosphere and spirit of the place and its natural inhabitants. Your stay will be peppered with magical surprises that will make this a memorable and unique trip - whether you are a frequent visitor to the African continent or new to safaris.

 

Each of the six rondavels have double or twin beds, air conditioning and spacious en suite bathroom. Whilst comfy and well appointed, the accommodation retains a real sense of traditional safari values - simple elegance with the emphasis on the wild world outside.

 

Maximum of 12 guests. This holiday is ATOL protected (ATOL 6195)


 

Price guide per person sharing twin/double room: £8,995 (a single supplement will apply).

Wild Dorset with Simon King

Saturday 3rd - Saturday 10th June 2017


The heaths, moors, marshes and woodland of the Isle of Purbeck and Jurassic Coast provide part of the stage for the 2017 Spring Safari, with Simon King.

Simon will take you on a journey of discovery into the secret corners of the county of Dorset, revealing some of the most charismatic and compelling of wild creatures in the nation.

The rare and elusive Dartford warbler, the dashing and mercurial hobby, enigmatic nightjar, sika and roe deer, smooth snakes, sand lizards and badgers, all are creatures of these southern wild places and we will hope to see most of them during our adventure and a great deal more besides.

We will be staying in the Springfield Country Hotel (complete with Spa and swimming pool) near Wareham Forest. The hotel’s location is ideal for access to many of the natural gems of Dorset, including the RSPB reserve at Arne, the rich marine and shore-life of Kimmeridge Bay plus the heaths, forests and marshes of the region. From the hotel, our small group (10 or fewer guests) will explore the area each day with Simon as your guide.

A visit to Brownsea Island which is home to one of the last populations of red squirrels in England, and an evening vigil to watch wild badgers coming out to feed will be part of the experience. We will offer trips at dusk and after dark to listen for nightjars and bats and Simon will share some of his unparalleled field craft skills and, for photography enthusiasts, offer hints and tips on how to develop your photographic techniques.

Dorset’s astonishing variety of habitats, from sea bird cliffs to lowland heaths and forests guarantee a wealth of wild surprises. Simon will ensure you have ringside seats for all of them.

Limited to 10 places only.

£2,795 per person sharing a double or twin room.
£395 single supplement

"It has been over a week now and every day I have been meaning to drop you a line to say a huge thank you. The Nfesu camp was brilliant, really comfortable, lovely staff, everything you could want, and arriving back from a long hot drive to a gin and tonic was beyond heaven!"
