October Heat & Specials

Across most of Central- Southern Africa the heat is intensifying; Summer has begun in earnest. There is always a sense of expectancy in the air around this time as we wait for the first rain showers to cool down the plains and fill up the various waterholes with fresh water. Guides at Victoria Falls report the falls are quite dry. Although I realize a lot of clients like to see the Victoria falls in full…

Malaria Free Safaris in South Africa

As this month comes to an end, I have two more blogs to write on our South Africa Month, this week I am focusing on Malaria free Safaris. It is a common request and something me and the rest of the team spend a lot of time chatting to clients about. Kruger is listed as a low risk malaria area, in truth though I have not met anyone over the last 10 years that has…
As mentioned in previous blogs, September is the month we focus on South Africa, one of the best months to do a safari in Southern Africa. Game viewing is at its best. Many requests we have received over the years for the Kruger are from couples or groups that have mixed requests in terms of accommodation, one party wants a traditional bush camping experience and the other wants their comforts, we think we have the…

South Africa on a Budget

Following on last week’s blog where we are running a South Africa Month and Specials, we thought we would write about doing South Africa on a budget in 12 to 14 Days and including some key areas. Over the years one of the most common requests we get on South Africa is doing a big 5 safari, spending time in Cape Town and seeing the Garden route. I must point out Cape Town is beautiful…
The Theme for this month is our home base country of South Africa, with spring beginning in the Southern part of the continent there is always and air of excitement in the various national parks around the country. Not too hot, not too cold what a wonderful time to travel South Africa. What’s great about just doing South Africa? Well firstly it is perhaps one of the most affordable destinations in Africa, if you keep…

April is always one of our best times to see the mighty Victoria Falls and a personal favorite. Traditionally there is less rain around than in March and a tad bit cooler. The Falls are currently in full flow, although the flow is less than in previous years I find this allows you to get closer to the actual falls and get some stunning pictures. In previous years when there has been better rain the…

At last the “winds of change” are blowing in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has a lot to offer, from the famous Victoria Falls, the wildlife of Hwange National Park, the rhino sanctuary in Matopos and more. We have therefore listed a new tour from Cape Town to Johannesburg which includes Zimbabwe and the above highlights. Taking you off the beaten, this overland tour includes all the major highlights of Cape Town, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Accommodation is…

Zanzibar - Island Paradise

Zanzibar is definitely worth a visit for travellers visiting East Africa. With palm lined beaches and sparkling turquoise sea, it is the perfect setting for a tropical beach holiday. The north of the island - Nungwi and Kendwa - are unique as there is no tidal plain and therefore offer excellent swimming conditions. A day trip on a dhow to snorkel on the Mnembe Atollis is a must do. There is a variety of beach…
