About Southern Africa
Wildlife encounters, natural wonders and cultural experiences are the watchwords of this southern portion of the vast African continent comprising South Africa, Botswana and Victoria Falls. With a wide range of flight connections, multi-centre holidays are popular though the individual charms of these destinations are also perfectly suited to more in-depth exploration.
Botswana is best travelled around by small plane, hopping from lodge to lodge taking in stunning aerial views as you go. Highlights include Chobe National Park, home to the densest elephant population in the world, and the Okavango Delta. Track the elusive African wild dog in the Linyati Wetlands and cruise through the Okavango Delta noiselessly in a mokoro (dugout canoe).
South Africa offers great diversity. A visit to one of the private reserves around Kruger National Park is highly recommended and is especially good for leopard sightings. The iconic city of Cape Town, with its prominent landmark of Table Mountain, provides a fascinating cosmopolitan contrast, and the surrounding winelands shouldn’t be missed!
One of the world’s most photographed waterfalls, a trip to Southern Africa is not complete without a visit to Victoria Falls. This celebrated landmark is located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Wherever you choose to visit, you can be assured of spectacular landscapes and superb wildlife viewings.
