The cradle of humanity

Did you know that the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa is home to a land-based colony of penguins? “Penguins in the desert?” you say …

Yes, South Africa is full of such surprises. No wonder, considering it is known by many as the ‘cradle of humanity’ and is certainly home to some of the most spectacular savannas and wildlife reserves on the planet.

Suffice to say that touring in Southern Africa through Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa offers one of the most eye-opening holiday experiences you could imagine.

From whale watching atop the summit of Cape Point, to standing in awe of Victoria Falls in Botswana or spotting the ‘Big Five’ at Kruger National Park in one of the world’s oldest national parks – this is where the wild things are. For more urbane tastes, try sipping on a glass of Pinotage – a South African specialty wine – or soaking in the atmosphere of the Waterfront. A tour through Southern Africa ticks all the boxes for an inspiring and exhilarating dream holiday.

Journey through the Garden Route in the Tsitsikamma Rainforest; be amazed during guided big game drives in national parks; see ancient rock art at Drakensburg National Park; experience the majesty of the Kingdom of Swaziland and venture into ‘the city of gold’ – Johannesburg.
