Briefly about our specialist destinations 

NORTH AFRICA
Egypt                                                                                      

Egypt is in north-eastern Africa with its capital located in its largest city, Cairo. Egypt also extends into Asia by virtue of holding the Sinai Peninsula. Egypt is bordered by Israel and the Gaza Strip to the north-east, by Sudan to the south and by Libya to the west. The country is bounded by the Mediterranean and Red Seas (to the north and east respectively) and geographically dominated both by the Nile River and its fertile well-watered valley, and by the Eastern and Western deserts. Egypt is perhaps best known as the home of the ancient Egyptian civilization, with its temples, hieroglyphs, mummies, and - visible above all - its pyramids. Less well-known is Egypt's medieval heritage, courtesy of Coptic Christianity and Islam - ancient churches, monasteries and mosques punctuate the Egyptian landscape. Egypt stimulates the imagination of western tourists like few other countries and is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations world-wide.

PACKAGES include:  8 night DISCOVER EGYPT (Cairo/Giza, Nile cruise (Aswan - Luxor) & Hurghada / 7 night BEACHING IN HURGHADA / 3 night CAIRO DISCOVERY, and many more package offerings

SOUTHERN AFRICA

Botswana
Botswana owes its tourist charm to wildlife hence it is an ultimate safari destination. One fifth of the country comprises wildlife sanctuaries. It has the world famous Chobe National Park and the wonderful Okavango Delta which attracts animals in mind boggling quantities. It is expensive, but fantastic; with private reserves, superb accommodation, immense concentrations of game and some of Africa's finest wildlife areas. Following the rains, massive herds migrate from the Okavango Delta and Chobe River to the deserts of the Kalahari and the lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans. This forms one of the largest animal migrations in the world. It is stunning, but safaris here are top end; these fabulous safaris and camps come with Africas highest price tag.

Malawi

Apart from the legendary Malawian friendliness, what captures you first about this vivid country is its geographical diversity. Slicing through the landscape in a trough formed by the Great Rift Valley is Africa’s third-largest lake: Lake Malawi, a shimmering mass of clear water, its depths swarming with colourful cichlid fish. Whether for diving, snorkelling, kayaking or chilling out on beaches and desert islands, a visit to the lake is a must.  Suspended in the clouds in Malawi’s deep south are the dramatic peaks of Mt Mulanje and the mysterious Zomba Plateau, both a hiker's dream, with mist-cowled forests and exotic wildlife. Further north is the otherworldly beauty of the Nyika Plateau, its rolling grasslands resembling the Scottish Highlands. Malawi was once dismissed as a safari destination, but all that changed with a lion-reintroduction program at Majete Wildlife Reserve, which is now one of a few worthwhile wildlife-watching destinations nationwide.

Mozambique 

Mozambique is one of Africa's up-and-coming hot-spots, with stunning beaches, excellent diving and magical offshore islands. Go snorkelling around the Bazaruto Archipelago, sail on a dhow through mangrove channels or laze under the palms in the Quirimbas Archipelago, take an off-beat safari in the wilds of Gorongosa National Park, wander along cobbled streets past stately colonial-era buildings on Ilha de Mocambique, sip a cafe espresso at one of Maputo's lively sidewalk cafes (or maybe a caipirinha at one of its jazz bars), watch the silversmiths at work on Ibo Island or dance to the countrys trademark marrabenta music.


[Inbound Tourists: 1.89 million / 2014]

Namibia

Namibia posesses some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa, and a trip through the country is one of the great road adventures. Natural wonders such as that mighty gash in the earth at Fish River Canyon and the wildlife utopia of Etosha National Park enthrall, but it’s the lonely desert roads where mighty slabs of granite rise out of swirling desert sands that will sear themselves in your mind. It’s like a coffee-table book come to life as sand dunes in the world’s oldest desert meet the crashing rollers along the wild Atlantic coast. Among all this is a German legacy evident in the cuisine and art nouveau architecture, and in festivals such as Windhoek’s legendary Oktoberfest. Namibia is also the headquarters of adventure activities in the region, so whether you’re a dreamer or love hearing the crunch of earth under your boots, travel in Namibia will stay with you long after the desert vistas fade.

South Africa
Every country in the world displays some diversity, but South Africa, stretching from the hippos in the Limpopo River to the penguins waddling on the Cape, takes some beating. It befits its position at the southern end of the worlds most epic continent, with more types of terrain than photographers can shake their zoom lens at. Theres the deserted Kalahari, Namakwas springtime symphony of wildflowers, iconic Table Mountain and Cape Point, Kruger National Parks wildlife-stalked savannah (scene of the famous lion-buffalo-crocodile battle watched more than 40 million times on YouTube) and, running through the east of the country and into Lesotho, the Drakensberg. KwaZulu-Natals iSimangaliso Wetland Park alone has five distinct ecosystems, attracting both zebras and dolphins. If youre interested in another kind of wildlife, hit the nightclubs on Cape Town's jumping Long St or sample African homebrew in a township shebeen (unlicensed bar). When its time to reflect on it all, do it over seafood on the Garden Route, curry in Durbans Indian Area, a sizzling Cape Malay dish, or a braai (barbecue) in the wilderness  accompanied by a bottle of pinotage produced by the oldest wine industry outside Europe.
South Africa - the world in one country!

Zambia

Get out into the bush where animals, both predators and prey, wander through unfenced camps, where night-time means swapping stories around the fire and where the human footprint is nowhere to be seen. The rewards of travelling in Zambia are those of exploring remote, mezmerising wilderness as full of an astonishing diversity of wildlife as any part of Southern Africa. Where one day you can canoe down a wide, placid river and the next raft through the raging rapids near world-famous Victoria Falls. Though landlocked, three great rivers, the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi, flow through Zambia, defining both its geography and the rhythms of life for many of its people. For those who do venture here, the relative lack of crowds means an even more satisfying journey. 


[Inbound Tourists: 915 000 / 2014]


Zimbabwe
Tourism is on the up again in this wonderful country which has much to see and plenty to offer travellers. From the breath-taking Victoria Falls to laid back house boats and eco resorts, lodges and camps on Lake Kariba. Wild life is abundant as most of the country's savannah land is scattered with beautiful parks and reserves. Visit Hwange, Mana Pools & Matopo National Parks. Then for hiking and flowers the Eastern Highlands beckon. Zimbabwe is a must-see for travellers to Africa! 


[Inbound Tourists: 1.833 million / 2014]


Vic Falls

One of the Seven Wonders of the world and dwarfing the Niagra Falls. The falls border Zimbabwe and Zambia and is one of Africa's most visited destinations. The Victoria Falls are one of the world's most spectacular plunges. The 2km wide Zambezi River drops more than 100m (328ft) into a steeply-walled gorge. The Zambian side of Victoria Falls has long played second fiddle to its better-known Zimbabwean counterpart, but both sides of the Falls are now booming. For close-up views of the Eastern Cataract, nothing beats the hair-raising (and hair-wetting) walk across the footbridge, through swirling clouds of mist, to a sheer buttress called the Knife Edge. If the water is low and the wind favourable, you'll be treated to a magnificent view of the falls and the yawning abyss below the Zambezi Bridge. Adrenaline junkies can indulge in white-water rafting, abseiling, river-boating, jet-boating, bungee jumping and a host of airborne activities. At certain times of year it is even possible to visit Livingstone Island and swim at the very edge of the Falls, though sadly it's no longer free. Don't get so caught up with activities that you miss one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world


 [Inbound Tourists: see Zambia & Zimbabwe]


INDIAN OCEAN ISLANDS

Madagascar
Lemurs, baobabs, rainforest, beaches, desert, trekking and diving: Madagascar  is a dream destination for nature and outdoor lovers and half the fun is getting to all these incredible attractions.


[Inbound Tourists: 196 000 / 2014]


Mauritius
 Mauritius is a fascinating, world-in-one-island slice of paradise. Its very name of conjures up images of tropical luxury and stupendous extravagance. While in many destinations famed for cobalt-blue seas, white sandy beaches and luxury hotels, you may eventually find yourself wishing for something to do besides sunbathing and swimming, it’s often hard to know what to do next in Mauritius. The island is loaded with historic sights, cultural diversity, geographic variation and almost limitless activities to distract you from the daily grind of beach and pool. But perhaps its single biggest asset is the relaxed charm of its warm and welcoming people.

[Inbound Tourists: 995 000 / 2014]


Reunion
Réunion is one of the Indian Ocean's last great island adventures. The diversity of landscapes is truly astonishing for such a small pocket. Jutting out of the ocean like a basaltic shield cloaked in green, this scenically magical island is a mini-Hawaii. What to expect? Emerald forests, tumbling waterfalls, awesome mountainscapes, twisting roads, soul-stirring panoramas, energetic coastal cities and a sprinkling of white- or black-sand beaches. The formidable Piton de la Fournaise, one of the world's most accessible active volcanoes, adds to the thrill. Small wonder that Réunion is a dream destination for nature and outdoor lovers. Hiking is the number-one activity, but canyoning, paragliding, rafting, horseback riding, diving, whale watching and climbing are also available

[Inbound Tourists: N/A]


Seychelles
You are planning a trip to the Seychelles? Lucky you! Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean and has spoiled them rotten. Undeniably, the beaches are the big attraction, and what beaches: exquisite ribbons of white sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills and big glacis boulders. A destinations once only for the rich and famous but now its accessible and affordable to many more travellers.
