Journey In Style

For that dream holiday of a lifetime, consider African destinations that offer the traveller open spaces, pristine wilderness and endless beaches. Mozambique is the place of islands in the sun, untouched beaches and turquoise seas; Botswana boasts magnificent game viewing and rich waterways; Namibia is home to spectacular landscapes and game reserves. And South Africa anchors them all, the ideal combinations of beaches, mountains, deserts, game reserves, open skies and blue oceans.

Africa offers the discerning traveller a variety of incredible holiday destinations and an assortment of accommodation choices for every budget and personal requirement. Families, couples and friends can travel safely to beautiful countries like Mozambique, Botswana, South Africa and Namibia, and return feeling completely refreshed and relaxed.

South Africa is loved for her famous Kruger National Park where some of the best game viewing and safari lodges in the world blend with superb vistas. You can travel the 2 800 kilometres of exciting coastline from Kosi Bay in the north, to Cape Agulhas in the south, marvelling at the spectacular cliffs, forests, beaches and activities. Cape Town is a must – wine farms, Table Mountain, Cape Point, whales and penguins – not to mention incredible accommodation and restaurants!

Just across the border lies Botswana, a flat, lush country centred on the awe-inspiring Kalahari Basin and boasting one of the wettest reserves in Africa.  Wild animals gather within the flourishing Okavango Delta, one of the most important water sources in the world. Imagine the heart-stopping excitement of seeing big game close up from the seat of a traditional Mokoro? Watch the huge elephant herds in Chobe National Park and cruise the Chobe River while Fish Eagles feed; find African Wild Dogs hunting in the lush Moremi Game Reserve and marvel at the dry salt pans of the extensive Makgadigadi Pans.

Botswana shares a border with Namibia, land of contrasts and fantastic conservation ethics. Plan your Namibian safari wisely for its enormous diversity and choice of accommodation. Head to Etosha National Park, famous for its centralised game viewing around waterholes, its elephants and lions. Make time to explore Damaraland, home to ancient rock art and complex cultural heritage. Exquisite rock formations lead travellers to the Skeleton Coast where whale and elephant skeletons lie adjacent to shipwrecks of yore.

Witness the wild horses of Luderitz, where the ghost town of Kolmanskop, dating back to 1908 diamond mining days, is slowly disappearing under the constantly evolving sand dunes. You will find so much to see and do in Namibia and time to rest up in Windhoek, the country’s capital, or Swakopmund, place of adventure activity and cool sea fogs.

The warm Indian Ocean surrounds the Mozambique islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos where remote islands offer travellers some of the best holiday accommodation and activities in the world.

Romance, family fun, business incentives and special diving packages – Mozambique is the best beach and water sport destination you will find in Africa! Go surfing along the Inhumane coastline, swim with the dolphins at Ponto do Ouro, boogy the night away in Maputo and get married on a pristine island. Explore huge marine nature reserves and their incredible dugongs, whales, whale sharks, manta rays and huge game fish.

Stay in exclusive island lodges and villas or beachfront eco hotels and self-catering chalets. Wide open beaches, swaying coconut palms and water sport adventures – this is Mozambique!

Your journey into Africa will be one of style – choose your destination according to your holiday needs.

NAVIGATE THE MAP FOR DETAILS ON EACH COUNTRY

  • Botswana

    Botswana is one of the most visited countries in Africa, its main draw card being its incredible variety of wildlife and natural habitats. Well conserved game reserves take up one fifth of this landlocked country which shares borders with Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Accommodation in Botswana ranges from rustic campsites, backpackers and self-catering units to comfy Bed and Breakfast establishments and top of the range lodges, resorts and hotels. Botswana is famous for its biodiversity and eco-systems, home to breath-taking fauna and flora. Areas such as the Okavango Delta, Moremi National Park, Chobe National Park and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve offer very high concentrations of game including lion, elephant, herds of zebra and antelope, wild dog and more. The remoteness of the Savuti Linyanti Wildlife Reserve in northern Botswana is also attractive to tourists who want to get back to nature in the true sense of the word. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve offers classic plains game dotted with plentiful waterholes while its sister parks, Nxai Pan and Makgadigadi Pans National Parks, offer the opportunity to see seasonal game on flat shimmery horizons. This is the home of the San (Bushmen) people who live in harmony with nature. Activities in Botswana are mostly related to the wildlife – game drives, nature walks, river cruises and canoe trips get tourists closer to the game where bird watching is also a national past time.

  • Mozambique

    Mozambique is a friendly tropical holiday destination with a colourful population and breathtaking scenery. Mozambique is warm and sunny, absolutely beautiful and remarkably accessible.

    Book an island holiday to the Bazaruto Archipelago for diving and snorkelling or a cultural experience in the Quirimbas Archipelago. Picture miles of unspoiled coastline, pristine natural areas, protected marine reserves and ancient architecture.

    Take part in superb outdoor activities from scuba diving, snorkelling, beach horse rides and boat cruises, to sundowners on a Dhow, picnics on sand bars, fishing and quad biking through coconut groves.

    Indulge in Mozambique cuisine – fresh seafood including lobster, large prawns, calamari and fish of the day to tantalise taste buds daily. Watch local fishermen catch the fish for the table while strolling along a deserted beach. Other local foods include cashew nuts and coconuts.

    Flights to Mozambique land in most regions such as Pemba , Maputo and Inhambane, then visitors take private charters or boat rides to the islands. Self drive is an option but in some areas a 4×4 vehicle is required on sandy or broken or simply non-existent roads.

    Mozambique accommodation suits all budgets and tastes – exclusive resorts, luxury lodges, hotels of all shapes and descriptions, self catering resorts and guest houses, Bed and Breakfasts, camp sites galore and exquisite villas.

    Mozambique has a fascinating history that starts in 1500 when the Portuguese established a string of forts and trading posts up and down the coast, starting with present day Ilha de Mozambique, where the Portuguese plied the spice and slave routes from Mozambique up until 1891.

    Mozambique is today one of the top beach holiday destinations in Africa. Approach Mozambique for what it is…

  • Namibia

    Namibia is a vast country in Africa where contrasting vistas, temperatures and landscapes compete with a fascinating history and rich culture. Land of wildlife, huge deserts, the Skeleton Coast and adventure activities, Namibia draws visitors from far and wide to explore her many moods.

    Most visitors prefer to self-drive their way across Namibia to see the world’s tallest sand dunes, the oldest plants on Earth and the remnants of the Bushmen hunter gatherers. During its history, Germany, Great Britain and South Africa have ruled Namibia but today, a melting pot of cultures has enriched the country.

    Etosha National Park, more than 2 million hectares of grassy wildlife habitat around a massive salt pan, and Sossusvlei, in the Namib Naukluft Park, are Namibia’s favourite tourist destinations. In rocky Damaraland, rare desert elephants and black rhino roam and in Luderitz, visitors can see the wild horses before exploring the famous Ghost Town of Kolmanskop.

    Resting at Swakopmund is a tourist’s dream where cooler ocean related activities make a change from so many desert safaris. Then visit some of Namibia’s predators being protected in the Waterberg Plateau by the AfriCat Foundation.
    For those seeking solitude, head for the splendid Caprivi Strip with its forests, rivers, wetlands and associated wildlife, or the enormous Kaokoland, home to the Himba people and accessible only by 4×4 vehicle. Time to book that Namibia overland safari today!
