Description of Southern Africa holiday

This Southern Africa holiday takes you on an adventurous trip around this fascinating corner of the world. Journeying through South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana, you’ll view wildlife roaming the bush and stalking the riverbanks, fall asleep in rustic camps to the sound of the wilderness around you and watch the sun set over endless plains.

Highlights of the trip include the wildlife dense Okavango Delta, the thundering waters of Victoria Falls, the other worldly Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and sprawling Soweto, where you’ll take a bike tour and learn about the township’s role in the dismantling of apartheid.

You’ll be travelling in a purpose built overland truck, along with a group of likeminded travellers, and there will be many early starts as well as long hours driving along rough roads. Most nights will be spent in two-person canvas dome tents, at both well-equipped campsites and bush camps with no facilities.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

People

We have always felt that Africans are better placed to show you Africa than we are! It is our policy to employ local guides for the duration of your trip. We always aim to spend money as locally as possible, and to work with local people in preference to ex patriates. We purchase food local so that money is well distributed within the regions we visit during the trip.

When not being used by us, we often send our safari trucks out on safari with local school kids to give them a taste of their own country in the national parks that are often too expensive for locals to visit.
