Africa Safaris & Vacations

Thrilling mountain ranges, vast deserts, wetlands, and viewing an abundance of fascinating wildlife on a safari adventure await you on a vacation to Africa. 

If you're looking for wildlife then you've come to the right place; Africa is teeming with varied wildlife. Head to Tanzania to see the annual Serengeti wildebeest migration accompanied by zebras, gazelles, eland and impala. Twin your visit with Kenya for the Maasai Mara to see herds of animals crossing the Mara River, and the many national parks where you'll see the Big Five, pink flamingos and hundreds of different bird species. In Uganda and Rwanda you will have the chance of seeing the giant gorillas and tree climbing lions. Or visit the world famous Kruger National Park in South Africa, home to the Big Five. 

In Kenya you will find some good beaches with the palm fringed Diani beach and white beach of Watamu (which is great for snorkelling). South Africa has the beautiful beaches of Camp's Bay and Hermanus - where you will have the chance to spot whales and dolphins and participate in several watersport activities. If you are looking for some warmer waters try the east coast of the country and visit the beaches of Umhlanga, St. Lucia and Cape Vidal.

For some adventure, head to Zambia or Zimbabwe, both home of the famous Victoria Falls. Canoe, zip-line, trek and join exhilarating safari game drives around the gorgeous expansive countries to discover open plains, spectacular views and lots of wildlife. Discover 1,200 miles of coastal desert with some of the highest desert sand dunes in the world in Namibia. Visit Botswana and drive around one of the largest salt panes at the desolate Makgadikgadi Pans or fly into the Okavango Delta where a traditional Mokoro trip can be done.

I adore Africa and have lived and worked in South Africa as well as travelling across the wider region. Spotting a leopard during a night safari at Nambiti Private Game Reserve is definitely an experience I'll remember forever.
