Experience a Sub-Saharan African tour
The southern parts of Africa offer ample opportunities for an amazing African tour, South Africa being one example. The country has a number of large game parks as well as smaller ones, each in a different part of the country with a unique habitat, different animals and different cultures. A trip down the Garden Route will take the visitor along a beautiful coastline dotted with quaint little towns and many places to stop for refreshments, or to buy local hand-made art and craft. To the east is KwaZulu-Natal with parks such as Umfolozi and St. Lucia that offer priceless sights and scenery.
No African tour is complete without a visit to Namibia. This region is arid for the most parts and desolate in the extreme at the Skeleton coast where you will find a white-capped sea, shipwrecks, wind and little else. It is the unusual terrain here that is the draw card, as is Kolmanskop, a deserted village en route to Luderitz. The “big game park” in Namibia is the famous Etosha National Park in the north of the country, while hikers would be challenged by the Vis River Canyon trail. Right at the top of the country, the Mahimba tribe still live as they have done for generations and their bodies are always covered by red ochre. It is indeed a versatile land full of surprises and a must see for any African tour.
Zimbabwe and Zambia share a border at the Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world. Plan your African tour to the falls only, or include it as a stopover in your itinerary. When visiting the falls, you can either stay on the Zimbabwean side in the town Victoria or on the Zambian side in their town, Livingstone. Apart from the impression that will be made on you by the massive amount of water falling over the cliff, a variety of other exciting activities will keep you busy. White water rafting, horse and photography safaris, fly-over tours of the falls with fixed wing aircraft as well as tours to other places of interest are some of the spectacular options available to guests.
Botswana is considered by many as the place to be. An African tour to this country will be filled with sightings of The Big Five, hippos, crocodiles, snakes, smaller mammals and birds. Your tours can be a combination of walking safaris, canoe tours, game drives and much more.
