Mozambique

Still an absolute favourite for South African's, yet relatively unknown to the international traveller, Mozambique offers a tropical paradise along the eastern shores of Southern Africa.

Several islands dotted off the mainland, but none quite as exciting as the Bazaruto archipelago, which includes our favourite Benguerra Island.

South Africa

An enormous country with a landmass almost five times the size of Britain and twice that of France, but what makes it so fascinating is the sheer diversity of its geography. To the north is the Kalahari Desert with its black-maned lions and beguiling meerkats. The subtropical east is lapped by the warm Indian Ocean and golden beaches, while the stormy and icy Atlantic pounds the Western Cape. The northeast is churned by the Limpopo River and home to the vast and rightly famous Kruger National Park, the oldest and most successful of all wildlife preservation areas in the country.

Zambia

Primarily considered a seasonal safari destination Zambia holds some of the most remote and untouched savannahs Sub-Saharan Africa has to offer.

Uncompromised Zambia comes alive when the rains subside, and flocks of colourful and broody avian species infiltrate the vast plains and waterways for seasonal breeding. It's an extravaganza second to none, yet only compliments the impressive populations of free-roaming wildlife.
