Foreign Travel Advice

A wonderful trip that connects Zanzibar and the Tanzanian Swahili Coast with the bustling city of Cape Town. This trip offers some of Africa's finest beaches from the white sands of Zanzibar, through to the shores of the beautiful Lake Malawi.

We visit some of Africa's best wildlife parks, such as South Luangwa, Chobe, Hwange and Etosha National Parks. But the two wildlife experiences, you will never forget, will be canoeing down through the Lower Zambezi region and walking with White Rhinos in Matobo National Park.

If you want spectacular scenery then this trip tops the bill and nowhere shows this more than the wonderful dune scapes of Namibia's Namib Desert and the vastness of the Fish River Canyon. If you are after wilderness, none is better that Botswana's incomparable Okavango Delta, which we will explore by dugout canoe. Finally, this journey has the greatest icon of them all, the incomparable Victoria Falls.

Great widlife but with the bonus of good campsites and tourism infrastructure, and so the lifestyle is pretty easy. Roads are generally good but we do get you away from the tourist trail and off the beaten track. Expect to be pushed outside your comfort zone occasionally.

Take in the jaw-dropping vistas at the Fish River Canyon

Visit the famous Dune 45 and explore the other-wordly landscapes of the Sossusvlei and the Dead Vlei salt pans

Visit the seal colony at Cape Cross

Spend time exploring the area around Spitzkoppe (nicknamed the Matterhorn of Africa), a granite peak rising 1728 metres above sea level

Overland safari through Etosha National Park with excellent wildlife
