Southern Africa

Blessed with some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth, Botswana is one of the great safari destinations in Africa and visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a safari. From the ancient baobabs of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans, the vast open land of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the sand dunes of the Kgalagadi, to the savannah grasslands of Chobe National Park and the waterways of the Okavango Delta, the diversity is staggering.

Mozambique beckons with its coastline and swaying palms, its traditions, its cultures, its vibe and its opportunities for adventure. This enigmatic Southern Eastern African country is well off most travellers’ maps, but it has much to offer those who venture here: long, dune-fringed beaches, turquoise waters abounding in shoals of colourful fish, well-preserved corals, remote archipelagos in the north, pounding surf in the south and graceful dhows with billowing sails. Add to this colonial-style architecture, a pulsating nightlife, a fascinating cultural mix and vast tracts of bushland and you have a truly remarkable country.

If Namibia is ‘Africa for beginners’, as is often said, then what a wonderful place to start! Few countries in Africa can match Namibia’s sheer natural beauty, bountiful sunshine, abundance of wildlife and game reserves, scenic beauty and a rich diversity of geological phenomena. The country is among the prime destinations in Africa and is known for its eco-tourism, which features in events that can be enjoyed in extensive national parks and wildlife reserves.

The rewards of travelling in Zambia are those of exploring remote, mesmerising wilderness as full of an astonishing diversity of wildlife as any part of Southern Africa. Adventures undertaken here will lead you deep into the bush where animals, both predators and prey, wander through unfenced camps, where night-time means swapping stories around the camp fire and where the human footprint is nowhere to be seen. Where one day you can canoe down a wide, placid river and the next raft through the raging rapids near the world-famous Victoria Falls.

A journey to Zimbabwe will take you through an attractive patchwork of landscapes, from highveld, balancing boulders and flaming Msasa trees, to laidback towns, lush mountains and lifeblood rivers. Here you can spot the Big Five (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo) in its national parks, discover World Heritage-listed archaeological sites and stand in awe of one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls – one of the premier incentive destinations in Africa.
