It is truly sad that creatures that once roamed so freely and in such abundance now need to be constantly guarded in protected areas to avoid their mass slaughter and total distinction. This is the reality

One of the premier destinations on the African continent, certainly within its southern regions is Zimbabwe. Famous for the world renowned ‘world wonder’ Victoria Falls, it is less well known internationally for 2 of its superb National Parks. These are places of preservation for the precious wildlife of the country, some of it sadly endangered and of course a vital part of Zimbabwe’s massive tourist industry. Many of South Africa’s preferred luxury safari operators include Zimbabwe in package tours as it borders South Africa, Zambia and Botswana, all neighbours with exciting guided tour and safari destinations.

Botswana really is an amazing place to visit. A thriving country producing valuable diamonds, and from the high-powered business hub of Gaborone, to the incredibly unspoilt getaways in its many wildlife preservation areas, it is, without a doubt, a land of great contrasts. It offers a smorgasbord of things to do and see, like vibrant cities, cultural villages, places of historic interest, top level accommodation and wildlife galore! Host to the famous Okavango Delta waterways and the Chobe National park, it also has one of Africa’s best kept secrets - the Mashatu Private Game Reserve! Many international

Summer is a special time, especially for wildlife enthusiasts visiting the Botswana region of Africa, especially when you choose to visit the Savute region of the Chobe National Park. Savute boasts the second-largest summer Zebra migration in Africa; its timing is determined by the rains, but usually occurs between November and December and again between February and April, when huge numbers of zebra move from the rivers in the north in search of the rain-ripe grasslands and full waterholes in the southwest of the park. The migration is always followed by large numbers of predators, including

When one thinks of an African Safari, we automatically associate it with exciting sightings of Africa’s beasts of river and veld, but there are literally multitudes of beautiful creatures of the wilds that adorn the African skies too. Bird watchers and bird lovers may be forgiven for turning their binoculars to the skies and treetops whilst others are pointing at Lions and Elephant! One of the things about engaging really flexible guided tour operators like Jewel of Africa Safaris, one of Africa’s most successful, is that you as a bird watcher can have your Safari experience geared towards

It is not surprising that it has always been one of the official ‘Wonders of the World.’ So magnificent is it to see, that one just has to be there to experience the thrill of this amazing sight known as The Victoria Falls. The Victoria falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world.  The locals call it “Mosi-oa-Tunya" - The ‘Smoke That Thunders’ and the spray when the falls is in full flood does indeed resemble a thick cloud of smoke – and the thunder? – You can hear
