South Africa is a country known for her cultural diversity, natural landscapes and magnificent wildlife. The safari experience is among the best in Africa and there are a number of sought-after game reserves to choose from.
Whether you prefer beaches or mountains, historical sites or trendy city life, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Kwa Zulu Natal and Cape Town are fantastic starting points for a South African holiday and if time allows, we would recommend you incorporate both.
This is a colourful and vibrant destination that often sees travelers returning again and again because there is so much to see and do and it is close to impossible to experience it all in one trip.
Botswana is home to the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta; the Makgadikgadi Pan, a large salt pan; and the renowned Chobe National Park, which holds the largest population of elephants in the world.
With seasonal rains providing ideal conditions for lush grasslands and wetlands, Botswana is a feast for grazing animals such as wildebeest, springbok, antelope and kudu. These animals also bring a host of big cat predators that are never too far from sight.
If you are considering this remarkable destination we would suggest travelling with us during the dry season - between May and October - as the weather is balmy and the water levels are high making it excellent for game viewing.

Zambia is Africa’s hidden jewel and a nature lover's paradise. Her wild African bushland, beautiful lakes and rivers are a sight to behold. Victoria Falls, located on the Zambezi River, is one of the largest waterfalls in the world and also one of the greatest attractions in Africa.
For the safari lovers, Kafue National Park (Zambia's oldest and largest national park) and South Luangwa National Park both hold an abundance of wildlife. Alternatively, spend your holiday on the banks of the Zambezi embarking on sunset cruises, helicopter flips and meandering the footpaths alongside the falls.
Zambians are full of enthusiasm for their country and this contributes to an exceptional experience.

The summer months can get extremely hot so we recommend visiting between July and October.
Mount Kiliminjaro, the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater are just a few of the things that make Tanzania a very popular and highly recommended travel destination.

We recommend planning your trip between June – July as this is the best time to view the migration across the Serengeti.
