Southern Africa

Over this past decade, Southern Africa, which includes the countries of South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Swaziland, Namibia and Lesotho, has started attracting tourists from all over the world. Family holidays in South Africa, home to the late Nelson Mandela and host of the incredible FIFA World Cup in 2010, have been at the forefront.


Gateway to Southern Africa and adventure tours, South Africa evokes images of golden white sand beaches, magnificent mountains, spectacular wildlife and incredible cultural diversity. All this plus a terrific climate and excellent infrastructure make South Africa a must see and do destination! With so many attractions, it is no wonder South Africa has been called a ‘world in one country’.

Safaris & Wildlife

Botswana has long been regarded as the best location for family safaris in Southern Africa by those in the know, and offers you a real African experience. Namibia is both a photographer’s and an adventurer’s dream, filled with massive, endless desert dunes, wild seascapes and Etosha, one of Africa’s very best wildlife parks. Zambia and Zimbabwe share the Victoria Falls and some of the world’s best white water rafting, while Mozambique is an up and coming hot spot mainly thanks to gorgeous beaches and picture perfect offshore islands.
