Travel Information


This vast country is undoubtedly one of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on earth. Fondly known  by locals as the 'Rainbow Nation', South Africa has 11 official languages and its multicultural inhabitants are influenced by a fascinating mix of cultures. Discover the gourmet restaurants, impressive art scene, vibrant nightlife and beautiful beaches of Cape Town; enjoy a local braai (barbecue) in the Soweto township; browse the bustling Indian markets in Durban; or sample some of the world’s finest wines at the myriad wine estates dotting the Cape Winelands. Some historical attractions to explore include the Zululand battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal, the Apartheid
Museum in Johannesburg and Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town. Above all else, its remarkably untamed  wilderness with its astonishing range of wildlife roaming freely across massive unfenced game reserves such as the  world-famous Kruger National Park. With all of this variety on offer, it is little wonder that South Africa has fast become Africa’s most popular tourist destination.

 


Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia boasts a well-developed infrastructure, some of the best tourist facilities in  Africa, and an impressive list of breathtaking natural wonders. Visitors can explore the capital of Windhoek and discover the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund boasting remnants of the country’s German influence, reflected in the architecture, culture, cuisine and the annual Oktoberfest celebrations. To properly appreciate this extraordinary country, you will have to venture out of the cities to explore the remarkable natural landscapes Namibia has to offer.
These include: the impressive Fish River Canyon; the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife, such  as lions, desert-adapted elephants and the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra; the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travellers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.

 


Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills and desert plains scattered with scrubland. The country’s primary  tourist drawcard is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango  Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host large prides of lions; and the Tsodilo
Hills, where 4500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.


A nation of spectacular natural beauty, friendly people and rich culture, Zimbabwe’s status as one of Africa’s leading  safari destinations was dampened for years by its political instability. But now that the country is transcending its  strife and returning to a state of equilibrium, it is once again emerging as a vacation highlight of the continent. Victoria Falls – known to locals as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’ – is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and  the sheer power of this massive body of water plunging into the Zambezi Gorge is awe -inspiring and unforgettable. Lake Kariba, with its game-rich shores and islands, is an idyllic safari spot featuring mind-blowing sunsets; Hwange
National Park is known for its huge herds of elephants; and a kayak trip down the Zambezi through the Mana Pools  National Park will appeal to the intrepid traveller, providing close encounters with crocodiles, hippos and a host of other wildlife.
