Spotlight on Southern Africa

From Victoria Falls to Cape Point there’s wealth of intriguing places across Southern Africa. Whether you want to go on safari, surf some of the world’s best beaches or enjoy superb food and wine this region offers unforgettable experiences and breathtaking natural beauty.

Going on a wildlife safari is number one for most travelers heading to Southern Africa. Few travel experiences can match the excitement of tracking down exotic animals in their natural environment. You’re spoilt for choice here with a range of game parks and safari styles to please every traveler! From basic rest camps to over the top luxury accommodation and mobile safaris that follow the game, this is the adventure of a lifetime!

Top destinations for finding big game plus hundreds of other mammals and birds are South Africa’s Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest (7,523 sq mi/19,485 sq km) and oldest (1898); Botswana’s Chobe National Park and Okavango Delta and Namibia’s Etosha National Park. 

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s greatest waterfalls and a truly awe-inspiring sight. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, the falls are right on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. While the 354 ft. (108m.) falls are untouched, the surrounding area has grown into a town with hotels, camp grounds and many adventure activities from bungee jumping to jet boating.

In Namibia, check out the sand dunes, some of the highest in the world for a mesmerizing landscape that stretches to the coast. You might want to try sand boarding down the giant dunes after riding to the top in a quad bike. Then head south to the spectacular Fish River Canyon, Africa’s largest. It’s a great place for hiking and enjoying the thermal spas at Ai-Ais.

South Africa’s diverse landscape, superb game viewing, world-class wine regions, stunning coastline and lively cities make this a must-see country for travelers. Imagine enjoying these experiences:

  • Taking a cable car to the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town for breathtaking views of the city and coast.
  • Sipping wine at Groot Constantia, the country’s most historic wine estate founded in 1685.
  • Touring the Garden Route with its expansive surfing beaches, stunning coastlines, caves, game reserves and ostrich farms.
  • Being at the most south-western tip of Africa at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope.

This is certainly a region not to be overlooked. Southern Africa offers a wide range of intriguing travel adventures and monumentally important destinations.
