Welcome to Southern Africa

South Africa packs it all in with an astounding diversity of wildlife, landscape and culture. Soak up the culture of Cape Town, then venture out into some of the continent’s great safari destinations, from Kruger National Park to the Okavango Delta. Perhaps you’ll see desert elephants in Namibia or black-maned lions in the Kalahari.

Whether you’re self-driving, traveling with a naturalist guide or gliding over the planes on a flightseeing adventure, the leopards, elephants, rhinos, antelope and zebras serenely living out their lives on the plains will take your breath away.

Take time to learn about the thriving cultures of the region, visiting rock art sites in South Africa and Zimbabwe or meeting the Basotho people in the highlands of Lesotho. And if your appetite for adventure is still not sated, go rafting on the Zambezi River, surfing along the Garden Route or bungee jumping at Victoria Falls. There’s more to explore than one visit can allow, so start dreaming of your return.
