“To go slow is one of the great needs in life”

  • Post category:Newsletters

 Becoming in-tune with nature is not a hurried process. And within a minimum 7-day long safari, where you will experience the early morning or late afternoon thrill of tracking a specific species, you will also learn to hear the call of the wild, to appreciate the smell of longed-for rain, the camp fire smell.  Because life here in the African bush remains colonially splendid, untouched by the hustle and bustle of city life.

 It is as much about acknowledging perhaps forgotten base instincts and needs, of indulging in a rich, traditional culture and truly feeling the spirit of Africa, as it is about returning home with a cargo-full of memories.

 Time is a precious commodity, which we need to respect as much as the environment. Time is an integral part of the earth beneath our feet, and the sky above us. Succumb to it. Do not wait for the “tomorrow” do it today! Book that unforgettable African safari now. Tomorrow can be too late!

 The bush is a way of life for me, and I am honored to have been able to share it with my family and those from near and far for the last 38 years. There is something unbelievable moving in the demonstration of active contribution to the continent, which makes me feel proud and privilege to have been part of this way of life.

 Thanks to all here at JANNIE OTTO SAFARIS. Making this one of the best and definitely one of the oldest Safari companies in Africa, putting JOS again in the “TOP 250 EXHIBITORS” with Safari Club International. Without your support, dedication, excitement and believe in who we are and what we do, this would not have been possible.

 Looking back at the 2019 season, we are thankful and proud on the success we had. The new friends we have made, the old ones who came back and spend another unforgettable safari with JANNIE OTTO SAFARIS, we just want to thank you all for your support, loyalty and friend ship.

 We had great evenings around the camp fires on the banks of the Limpopo and Matlaba’s rivers, the dry rocky hills of the Northern Cape, under the big fewer trees of Zululand, rolling hills and thick bush of the Eastern Cape  and the beautiful wilderness of Masai land in Tanzania. Lots of memories were made and will stay with all of us for the rest of our lives.

 Great trophies were collected. 47 and 46 inch Sables, 60 inch kudu’s, 44 inch buffalo’s, 30 plus inch roans, but every specie collected, was a great trophy for a dedicated hunter. Believing and knowing the important role hunters play in the conservation of wildlife and the support to the local communities here in Africa!!

 We had unforgettable photo graphic safaris to the Kruger National Park, Cape Town, Victoria Falls in Zambia and Chobe National Park in Botswana.

 We are now at the end of another year, end of 2019, planning for the 2020 season which, already have the promises of becoming a better season than the 2019 one. Thanks for all of you who have booked safaris with us for 2020/21. The new clients, the old ones. We are excited and looking forward to have you here with us in Africa, to make memories and to give you that real “TASTE OF AFRICA”

 Looking forward to see you all during our marketing trip to the USA from the 2nd of January to the 18th of March. Please come and see us!

 Jannie Otto.
