Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

South Africa Walking Adventure

This spectacular journey offers the perfect mix of walking, game viewing and history amongst the stunning diverse landscapes of the northern region of South Africa. During a series of selected day walks of varying grades, we explore the Drakensberg Mountains which is the highest range in South Africa, including a strenuous ascent of the Amphitheatre. We undertake mountain walks and cultural sightseeing along the Mpumalanga Panorama Route and Blyde River Canyon, and visit the fascinating kingdoms of Swaziland and Zululand. Another highlight is the World Heritage listed iSimangaliso Wetland Park with its rich biodiversity and unique ecosystem of wetlands, lakes, beaches, coral reefs, savannahs and coastal forests supporting many species of fauna and flora. Our South Africa adventure is complete with a game walk and game drives in search of the 'Big Five' in the renowned Kruger National Park.
