Safari in Botswana

Botswana is the ultimate safari experience.

Safari in Malawi

Malawi is well know for being "The warm Heart of Africa".  It is dominated by its lake - Lake Malawi - carved out as part of the Great Rift Valley and Africa's third largest lake and the focus of much of the country's tourism.

While not in the same league as East Africa's savanna reserves, Malawi offers good game viewing in Liwonde National park, Nyika, Vwaza and Nkhotakota - all are easy and inexpensive to visit.

Mozambique is in many ways like two distinct countries split between southern and northern Mozambique. While the north of the country is almost untravelled, most travellers only visit the south coast, which is long established as a tourist destination with numerous beach resorts, delicious Portuguese cuisine and within a day's drive from Johannesburg. The south coast is beautiful and offers adventure in the sea including snorkelling, great diving and world-class game fishing off the coast.
