Blinds, Boats, & Balloons with Michele Westmorland

departing September 3, 2015

Piper & Heath Travel is proud to again partner with Michele Westmorland to bring you Blinds, Boats, & Balloons 2015.

Michele operates Westmorland Images, with its vast library of imagery from around the world, from her home in Redmond, Washington. Conservation in terrestrial wildlife, marine life, and cultural heritage are important factors to her commitment to preserve the most delicate elements of our planet. As a member of International League of Conservation Photographers, Michele understands the need to tell a visual story to share the natural beauty of our world. Her expertise in areas such as Papua New Guinea and Africa are well recognized, and she had led many photographic tours to both countries.

This 11-day safari covers the most prime and exclusive areas of Zambia and Zimbabwe, including Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, and Zambia's Kafue National Park.

Ruckomechi Camp lies on the banks of the mighty Zambezi and offers superb views of Zimbabwe's stretch of the Great Rift Valley. Each of the camps ten spacious en-suite tents overlook the river. The camp is particularly known for its fantastic elephant population. Located in the most game rich part of South Luangwa National Park, Kaingo Camp perches on the banks of the Luangwa River. The camp's private en-suite chalets can host a maximum of twelve guests at a time, ensuring a unique level of intimacy and exclusivity. Nestled on a tree island in the heart of Zambia's Busanga Plains, stylish Shumba Camp offers 360-degree views of the expansive plains. Its six splendidly appointed safari tents are constructed on raised platforms to take full advantage of the surrounding views.

This safari starts and ends in Johannesburg, South Africa. Southern Africa has a multitude of options available for pre and post safari extensions, and Piper & Heath will work with each individual traveler to make this the safari of a lifetime.
