Excellent Reviewed Tour: Botswana Wildlife Safari

  • Alistair
“Probably one of the best family holidays we have ever had. Explore do need to watch that the groups are not imbalanced by a large number of single white pensioners”
Excellent Reviewed Tour: Namibia Lodge Safari

“I would like to commend PJ - he really did work so hard. He wanted to give us the best experience of Namibia and he succeeded. He was an excellent game spotter. When we was supposed to be having a break he heard there were lions so we all leapt into the van and saw them. He was also excellent on suggestions for places to eat etc. ”
Great trip all round Reviewed Tour: 6-Day Classic Kruger Park Safari

  • Carl Daft
  • From Britain
“Very well organised from start to finish. All staff friendly and professional and got to see and do a lot during the trip. Saw a big pride of lions very close up within 10 minutes on our first drive and saw all of the big five over the six days - including lots of elephants, many more than expected! Also had two separate leopard sightings which was a treat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and meals were all good too. All-in-all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.”

Southern Africa — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Southern African has an amalgamation of some of the best countries in African and it no doubt is the jewel at the southern tip of the continent. Exploring Southern Africa will expose you to extreme desert heat to pearly cool-blue waters and show you natural wonders from dramatic landscapes, endless beaches, and exotic wildlife. A trip through southern Africa typically takes between 2-4 weeks depending on how many countries you want to visit. You can fly between them, but an even better path is on a jeep with regional experts! There’s so much to discover in Southern Africa!

Tour Highlights

  • At the most southern tip of Africa is the glorious city of Cape Town with its natural beauty of Cape Point, Camps Bay, and Table Mountain. Learn about its chaotic history rooted in apartheid and how it rose to be a powerful place full of fresh farm produce, wineries, and mixture of African/European cultures.
  • No trip to Africa would be complete without a safari adventure through the savannah on the back of a jeep! Explore many of the incredible African adventure tours that take you deep through the country where you’ll see life a pack of lions taking down their prey, ancient elephants migrating to water sources, thousands of birds, and so much more. If you’re short on time, you can always venture to Kruger National Park for the quick fix.
  • For those insta-photo seekers, a trip to the Victoria Falls will make the entire trip across Southern African worth your while. Also called “the smoke that thunders”, the Victoria Falls similar to Niagara Falls in size but allows an up-close encounter by standing in pools at the edge to get the best view and photos.

Travel Tips

  • While it’s perfectly possible to travel independently across the country by jumping on different jeeps or buses, it’s highly suggested to book a travel group not only for the ease of travel but also for safety and time.
  • Traveling around Africa does require that you provide proof in most countries that you’ve had yellow fever vaccination and malaria prophylaxis. This is to ensure you don’t pick up anything nasty along the way so be sure to consult your doctor before going.
  • If you’re a westerner or white foreigner, you’ll often hear the term “Mzungu” being yelled your way. Don’t take offense to this or get scared by it. The term loosely means ‘a person who wanders without purpose’ and is said in a friendly manner.
