Landing in the vibrant cultural melting pot of Johannesburg in South Africa, we begin our journey through Southern Africa by extensively touring the township of Soweto, where we see affluent neighbourhoods, shanty-towns, the world's largest hospital and the former residences of Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela. A region with a fascinating, and at times dubious, history, Soweto was the location of some of the more infamous events during the struggle against apartheid and is today brimming with sites of archaeological and historic interest. Crossing the border into Zimbabwe, we head for one of the world's most magnificent natural sights at Victoria Falls, named after the then-reigning Queen of England by Scottish missionary David Livingstone. We get close to nature by rambling through dense rainforest around the Falls. We return to South Africa for yet more exploration of this abundant natural wonderland by admiring exotic flora and teeming fauna -- like leopards, cheetahs, elephants and zebras -- in the country's largest nature reserve; Kruger National Park. Into Swaziland, one of the last remaining kingdoms in Africa to get a taste of the rural life of the inhabitants of this country that was once dominated by colonialism. Back in South Africa, we see the region that is the traditional home of the Zulu nation, gaze in awe at the 'Big Five' in the oldest conservation area in Africa and explore the many attractions in and around Cape Town, one of the world's most spectacularly located cities.
