Tour Overview


One of the world's most dynamic and exciting cities in the world awaits us as we touch down in Johannesburg, South Africa. Having been completely rebuilt no fewer than four times in its relatively short history, Johannesburg first became established after the discovery of gold in the region and stands today as a city of mind-boggling contrast, where glittering skyscrapers and whitewashed mansions lie only blocks from poverty-riddled shanty towns. Our tour of the surrounding areas unveils a complex and intriguing history; we visit the former residences of Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela, saunter through the Apartheid Museum, check out the administrative capital of the country and see Boer statues and war monuments.

From here, we enjoy some of nature's most memorable attractions with trips over to Zimbabwe's majestic Victoria Falls and to see the teeming wildlife in Botswana's Chobe National Park; two reasons that alone would warrant a trip to Southern Africa. From quaint colonial towns with Victorian tin-roofed houses and wooden verandas, to authentic, thatched mud huts in traditional rural villages, we explore the wide array of architectural style and cultural diversity that Southern Africa has to offer.

We have the chance to arrange elephant-back safaris, river cruises, canoe trips and short scenic flights to enjoy abundant lands from an aerial perspective en route through five unique Southern African countries and our visits to several of the most notable wildlife parks and reserves on the continent ensure that our thirst for animal-viewing is not left unsatisfied In South Africa's largest game reserve -- Kruger National Park -- there exists more than 137 mammal species, 49 fish species, 112 reptile species and nearly 500 bird species and it is here that we may see and photograph lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants and zebras; the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the northern continuation of the area that has become synonymous with the word 'safari' -- the Serengeti Plain -- boasts an astounding array of wildlife, including the 'Big Five'. Magical, barren scenery, fascinating cultures and peoples, and incredible wildlife come together to make this tour an adventure never to be forgotten.
