Between these extremes, wooded savannah, open savannah and mountainous terrain support an abundance of fauna and flora which makes a South Africa safari a truly diverse and memorable experience.
The most popular safari areas in South Africa include the Kruger National Park and the private game reserves which form part of it and then also the Addo National Park area in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Namibia was formerly known as South West Africa and there are quite a lot of German speaking people living in Namibia. This makes Namibia especially popular with German speaking visitors from Namibia.

Victoria Falls Safari
Victoria Falls (also known as Vic Falls), is one of the most visited destinations in Southern Africa for those who can afford it and rightly so. The hotels and resorts at Victoria Falls are of a very high quality and standard. Victoria Falls is also known as “The Smoke That Thunders”. Humans have always been fascinated by the sheer power of the geological marvel that we call the Victoria Falls, the greatest falling curtain of water in the world. The Victoria Falls mark the dramatic transformation of the broad, placid, slow moving Zambezi River into a raging, angry torrent that crashes into a foaming chasm before racing through gorges carved deep below the surrounding countryside.
Sharing this wonder of the world, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet along the mighty Zambezi River. The mile wide Victoria Falls and Batoka Gorge form an awesome focal point. The historic town of Livingstone, Zambia and the bustling town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe are connected by a 30 minute road transfer over the famous bridge.
One important fact to take into account when booking your Victoria Falls holiday: from the beginning of February to August approximately 30% of the Victoria Falls can be seen and enjoyed from Zambia and 70% from Zimbabwe. In the other, dryer months the Falls can only be seen and enjoyed from Zimbabwe where the view remains breathtaking for the entire year.
The Vic Falls hotels and resorts offer something for everyone. With over 20 different Victoria Falls hotels and resorts and more than 2500 beds available, Vic Falls is an exciting and fun destination that caters for all tastes and all budgets.
Without a doubt the Victoria Falls offers some of the most breathtaking and magical sights in the world – a soaring spray, water thundering down a terrifying gorge and peaceful lagoons upstream where hippos stretch out and deadly crocodiles lie in wait. The Victoria Falls, with a width of 1708 meters, is the biggest water curtain in the world. It falls down the Zambezi Gorge from a height of between 90 meters and 107 meters. An awesome 5 50 000 cubic metres of water plunge down each minute.
Remarkably preserved in its natural state, Victoria Falls inspires visitors as much today as it did David Livingstone in the 1860’s. The Victoria Falls and the surrounding area have been declared National Parks and a World Heritage Site, thus preserving the area from excessive commercialisation.
A number of amazing activities can be undertaken at Victoria Falls. The “Flight of Angels” provides a fabulous vista of the Vic Falls, the upstream river and its many islands and for the more adventurous there is micro-lighting with stunning views of the Falls. Rafting and wild rapids below the Vic Falls is a very popular adventure. Visitors can also kayak, canoe, fish, go on guided walking safaris, ride on horseback and lunch on Livingstone Island.
Victoria Falls is a once in a lifetime destination and there are many amazing hotels and resorts for you to explore.
Mozambique is also known as the “Land of Smiles”. Mozambique offers many different lodges and resorts to choose from. Mozambique is fast becoming well known as a holiday and incentives destination with stunning beaches and luxury resorts with great weather all year round.

Mozambique is a country in south eastern Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean on the east, Tanzania to the north and South Africa to the south. Originally the coast of Mozambique was under Arab control. Mozambique was colonized by Portugal in 1505. Mozambique became independent from Portugal in 1975 causing almost all of the Portuguese people to leave the country, but Portuguese is still commonly spoken there by the black people.
Mozambique has stunning beaches, excellent diving and magical offshore islands. For the last 20 years, Mozambique was off limits due to a protracted civil war which left the country poverty stricken. Today the bad times are over and in the past and Mozambique is one of Africa’s best beach resort destinations. Mozambique offers 2500 km of coastline waiting to be discovered and as a result you will find fabulous lodges and resorts in Mozambique.
Mozambique is a country of spectacular contrasts: beautiful beaches, exotic cities, stunning islands and fascinating cultures.
