What Do You Want to See?

The panoramic views of the Eastern highlands, the magnificent scenery of the Garden Route and majestic Table Mountain, all found in South Africa are breath-taking, but equally so is the incredible sight of the spray that rises from the thunderous Victoria falls and the absolute serenity you feel when in the Kalahari desert or on the salt pans of Botswana.
Let us know which of these you would really like to see, or maybe combine a thrilling safari with a spectacular scenic experience?
What Do You Want to Do?
You may be the type who’s bored to tears by game viewing and finds scenic wonders as exciting as watching paint dry. Action and activities are your thing and you want to do it all!
From some of the highest natural bungee jumps in the world, to hot air ballooning over vast expanses, helicopter flips over the Victoria Falls, white water rafting, sliding over natural forests on a ‘Foefie’ slide or hiking up Table Mountain – Africa has all this and so much more!
If you are keen on more leisurely activities like visiting cultural villages or relaxing in Spas, we take you where you want to go, to do what you want to do, so just decide what will really float your boat!
When Do You Want To Be Here?
Remember to always check with your tour operator when is the best time of year to be travelling in relation to what you want to be doing. Game viewing in most of the game reserves should generally not be in the hottest or coldest months of the year, but in early spring when many of the animals are being born, or in our very temperate Southern African autumn, better known to our American friends as the ‘fall’.
If you’re one for beaches and barbecues however, you will enjoy the summer months at the coast, and if you’re one for many of the extreme activities you would probably prefer to be doing those sorts of things in our winter months. Remember in most of Southern Africa, even winters days can be in the 20 to 30 degree centigrade plus area!
