There’s hope that Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls International Airport, which finally opened in December, will be a catalyst for intra-continental travel, opening up safari combinations between Africa’s eastern and southern reaches that are both more expedient and more affordable than the current routes. For now, though, do what’s necessary to get yourself to Namibia, for it’s here that newly created owner-operator Namibia Exclusive (www.namibia-exclusive.com) is set to debut four camps across the country’s sere, little-touched northern reaches. Opening in April is Xaudum, in Khaudum National Park, which borders western Botswana below the Caprivi Strip – a stealth repository, says Namibia Exclusive founder Vitor Azevedo, of richly diverse wildlife, from cheetah and leopard to wild dog to elephant, which have long used the Caprivi to traverse from west to east. Book through Scott Dunn (www.scottdunn.com; from £3,275 per person for 10 days).
