Southern Africa is home to an abundance of cultures, wildlife and captivating landscapes, including mountains, beaches, semi-desert, and even winelands. It offers much more than big 5 safaris, but for those who want nothing more than to see African safari animals up close, parks in this region offer some of the largest biodiversity on earth.

From vibrant cities to remote wilderness where you won’t see another human being for miles, this really is a holiday destination with something for everyone.

We’ve done over 60 tours of Africa, and we understand that every traveler’s needs are unique. We can help you with your personal safari planning for your own custom, private tour of southern Africa. We know what to show you to make you love it as much as we do – and we should know, because we live here!

Travels in this part of the continent leave visitors with once-in-a-lifetime experiences that few destinations can rival including the big triangle; Cape Town, Victoria Falls and the Kruger Park, a favourite route for many travellers.

South Africa Safaris and Tours

South Africa – at the continent’s furthest point – is renowned for its Big 5 game attractions, especially in the Kruger National Park and Madikwe, for example.

But with sun kissed beaches, winelands tours and impeccable fine dining in Cape Town, it is a destination that provides travellers with thrills and leisure.

Namibia Safaris and Tours

The unique red dunes, salt flats and expansive coast draws visitors to Namibia – a country hugged by the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert.

In addition to rhino, kudu and jackals, cheetahs run wild here in the world’s highest numbers.

A visit to Etosha National Park is a highlight.

If you want to experience both the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert, you’ll want to visit Botswana.

Watch quietly as elephant herds graze in Chobe National Park, where hyena and wild dogs share their habitat. Zebra and antelope migrate during the green season and attract lion prides on the hunt.

Zimbabwe Safaris and Tours

Drink in iconic Lake Kariba sunsets from the deck of a houseboat, view plains teeming with wildlife, visit the remains of a thriving ancient civilization at the Great Zimbabwe ruins, or even go trout fishing in the green hills of northern Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe, which shares Victoria Falls with its northern neighbour – gifts travellers with other five national parks and reserves, perfect for game viewing where you’ll spot big cats like lion and leopard, buffalo, zebra and buck.

Zambia Safaris and Tours

​There are a lot of reasons to visit Zambia when planning a trip to Africa.

Not only does Zambia’s unspoilt wildernesses and sapphire lakes and rivers offer excellent safari tours, but Zambia has long been voted the safest country in Africa, with crime levels comparable to Europe.

A full third of Zambia is covered by national parks.

The silhouette of a giraffe against a sunset and Mount Kenya is synonymous with Kenya’s scenic beauty and the Maasai Mara is a famous site for the spectacular migration of wildebeet, zebras and gazelle.
Here, you’ll be able to witness the zebra migration across the Liuwa Plain, spot hippo and crocodile in the wetlands, experience an authentic walking safari in the Luangwa Valley and marvel at Victoria Falls, the plunging ‘Smoke that Thunders’.
