Walk with lions, run with cheetahs, go on a gorilla trek, ride an ostrich, climb Africa’s highest peak, ride over the vast expanse of a dry salt lake, travel the African night skies on an astral safari or camp out in the Kalahari Desert.

Step into spaces that time has forgotten where the thrills are endless and so is the serenity.

Botswana offers a visitor everything they can imagine; a modern, vibrant capital with intimate wildlife experiences just a short flight away.  Every year, 11000 cubic kilometres of water runs from the Kavango River into the 15 000 square km of swamp, making up the Delta. The sun setting on the water as you glide along listening to the bell frogs, watching birds swoop and fish will make you feel as though you dropped through a mirror into paradise The Okavango Delta offers an extraordinary network of gleaming water ways meandering through a large tract of land with a superb choice…
Long known as the ultimate safari destination, Kenya has it all. Mighty mountains, the Rift Valley, huge lakes, open plains and a sultry coastline, Kenya offers you a paradise of choice. Kenya has had a colourful influence from far-off lands as rulers from Oman, the Gulf and Persia founded trading posts there, and the people bear all the multicultural hallmarks of this polyglot past.     One of the most unforgettable sights you will encounter is an immense carpet of pink flamingos, stretching right across the horizon, lining the shore of Lake Nakuru. The Masai Mara Game Reserve has astonishing…
Not for nothing is Malawi called the Warm Heart of Africa. There are many opportunities for you to explore both the inland lakes and the surrounding villages and towns. Blantyre is the capital of Malawi and a quintessentially African city. You cannot fail to be charmed by the warmth, the welcome and the culture of the Malawian people.   Try adventure-filled options such as mountain biking, walking in the highlands and forests, sailing, kayaking, fishing and snorkelling in the clear blue waters. You can select a safari by  boat, on horseback, on foot or by 4x4. You can explore the…
Mozambique lies along the south eastern coastline of Africa and boasts 2500 kilometres of pristine coastline. Formerly a Portuguese colony, it has once again become the playground of South African and international tourists who visit the turquoise waters of various islands and coastal resorts. Mozambique is best known for its beach holidays which can be amazing. Long, palm-fringed beaches with fine white sand, remarkable deltas, shady mangrove forests and freshwater lagoons; tropical islands surrounded by aqua waters, where iridescent fish swim amongst pristine coral.  Welcome to the coastline and islands of Mozambique. The Fort of São Sebastião on the Island…
This is a stunning land of contrasts. For all its miles of apparently deserted sand dunes, mountains, and grassland, Namibia is home to the most unique plant life on earth. If you are lucky enough to encounter a Welwitschia plant it is a life-experience as this is such a rare sight. They are one of the most unique plants and also one of the ugliest. In a still moment, you will hear the sand dunes singing their haunting song. Fascinating people, flora and animals are perfectly adapted to survive in this remorseless landscape. Namibia boasts some of the finest lodges…
This is a land of a thousand hills, valleys and lakes. Rwanda is host to mystical ancient forests that support an abundance of rare animal species and plant life. Come and meet Rwanda’s famous primates including man’s closest relative the chimpanzee. They thrive in a misty environment amidst towering trees and ghostly creeping vines.  The Genocide Museum honouring the millions of Rwandans who died in a brutal and futile civil war is not to be missed. Dating back before the last ice Age, a geological rift tore through Central and East Africa. This explosive event led to the formation of…
Swaziland is a tiny landlocked country surrounded by South Africa. It is ruled by the last remaining absolute monarch in Africa and upholds its own unique traditions and cultures. Swaziland’s culture offers a insightful view into the history of these peaceful, warm and kind people. The many nature reserves in the country are very accessible and are home to a vast variety of fauna and flora   Tour options include self-drive, 4x4 vehicle guided tours and horse guided tours, all of which are a delight.  
It would be hard to encapsulate all that makes up the extraordinary Tanzania experience. The most unique of which is the Great Migration. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest follow an historical yet invisible route mapped into their genetic makeup. As they make their way across the expansive plains of the Serengeti, you can follow by balloon, mobile camp or vehicle. Sit on the very edge of the Ngoro crater or climb Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest peak in Africa.   The Eastern Arc Mountains have been called the "African Archipelago" due to their great wealth of indigenous plants and animals.…
Known as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda was named as the number one country to visit in Lonely Planet's "2012 Best in Travel". Ecologically, it is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. The capital, Kampala, has a wonderful geography. Situated on the equator on the shore of Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, it’s close to the source of the longest river in the world, the Nile.   Visualise yourself crouched in the rain forest, looking into the gentle brown eyes of a gorilla. A unique privilege, as time is running out for these critically endangered primates.…
Arriving in the capital Lusaka, you get a sense of familiarity, however you can’t fail to notice the vast contrast between rich and poor, which is typical of most cities on the continent. Easily accessible from other African countries, Zambia is a gateway to endless natural beauty. Shaped and fed by 19 significant rivers, you can combine the elements of enticing travel experiences such as white water rafting, diving, birding, and wildlife viewing. Here too you can experience the great annual Wildebeest Migration. The often-photographed Victoria Falls is nothing short of stunning, and it’s not hard to understand why it’s…

Or just go beach to beach between tiny fishing villages—each one's better than the next. Zanzibar offers world-class water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing,…
From dense rain forests to the Grande Dame of hotels and a time of romance and old-world elegance, Zimbabwe will transport you from one fascinating experience to another. This complicated country has so much to offer. Not only can you explore an area rich in early Stone Age sights, but you can sip champagne whilst riding a steam train on the bridge spanning the famous Victoria Falls.
