Southern Africa is one of the most exotic and diverse destinations in the world. Extensive deserts, lush forests, game reserves, a fascinating plant and amazing wildlife with the big 5 await you amidst incredible sights like the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta, the Kruger National Park, the Victoria Falls or the famous Garden Route. With a well developed road network (and air transport network) and a wide variety of accommodations to choose from, Southern Africa is the ideal destination for individual travelers and tour groups alike.

South Africa

South Africa offers you a unique combination of a rich culture and history, stunning landscapes, and exotic animals. From the coastlines to the mountains, South Africa truly is a whole world in one country.


From the amazing wildlife and spectacular nature of the Okavango Delta to the unique Kalagadi and Chobe National Park and the ever so picturesque baobab trees, Botswana is a destination ideal for all travelers.


Most renowned for the world’s oldest desert, Namibia is also home to a unique animal kingdom, majestic landscapes like Fish River Canyon, and the Sossusvlei salt pan and the pristine red dunes surrounding it.


A scenic coast along the Indian Ocean and its many islands and coral reefs are but a small part of the country’s magical charm. The traditional hospitality makes for a warm welcome.


Located in central southern Africa, Zimbabwe is not only known for its game reserves and national parks - the famous Victoria Falls are a uniquely stunning view to behold.


Home to some of the best safari opportunities in southern Africa, Zambia offers stunning natural beauties like its rivers, ravines, and of course the Victoria Falls.
