South Africa

The hottest tourist attraction in South Africa these days is Robben Island, where former president Nelson Mandela spent almost 20 years as a political prisoner, quarrying lime with pick and shovel. But the transformation of dreaded prison to tour destination is only part of South Africa's astonishing evolution from pariah nation to modern statehood -- a process that has been accompanied by painful setbacks as well as exhilarating victories.

The new South Africa is an exciting place to visit. Cape Town, with its vibrant nightlife, stylish young people and beautiful surroundings, has become one of the most desirable destinations in the world. And South Africa's natural attractions are as appealing as ever: the green vineyards and rocky coast of the Cape; the arid landscape of the Karoo; the rich farmlands of Gauteng and Mpumalanga; the snowcapped peaks of the Drakensberg range; and the verdant hills and wide beaches of KwaZulu-Natal. The country also has more than 300 game and nature reserves, along with some of the finest lodges on the continent. Your surroundings can be as wild or as genteel as you want -- or both.

Botswana

Wildlife viewing, bird watching, fishing and desert camping are the foremost attractions of Botswana.

Adventurous people interested in superlative wildlife reserves and deserts will enjoy traveling there. It's not for those who are more interested in African culture than animals or those who are trying to see Africa on a tight budget.

Tanzania

Tanzania is home to Africa's seemingly endless plains of the Serengeti National Park, where one of the world's greatest natural spectacles, the annual migration of some two million wildebeest followed by their predators can be observed. The Serengeti holds some of the largest concentrations of lion, cheetah and leopard in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater (a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site) is simply amazing. It is a 12-mile (19 km) wide volcanic crater, ringed with towering walls and sheltering forests, grasslands, fresh springs, a large lake, and a dazzling abundance of animals of all sorts. The sunken cone of this extinct volcano serves as a natural cradle for the wildlife, which remain in the vicinity year-round. Tarangire National Park has some of the highest population density of elephants anywhere in Tanzania, and with its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees, it makes for a beautiful and special location. Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa's highest peak) soars above the African plains. To reach the summit and look out across the plains below is to view the world from an entirely different perspective. It's no wonder that tourists and serious mountaineers alike regard this as one of life's most memorable experiences.

Safaris

An African Safari is an experience unlike any other. From camping safaris to luxury flying safaris, or underwater safaris. When choosing your safari, you need to consider the itinerary, the type of accomodation (bush camp, luxury tented camp, lodges, budget hotels...) and the type of transportation (minibus, Land Rover, overland truck, plane...). I look forward to working with you to provide you with the best safari possible.
