Southern Africa with its famous Victoria Falls and great cities like Cape Town offers some of the most rewarding and exciting natural and cultural experiences on the Continent. This is a region associated with Livingstone, Stanley and Burton, as well as the Zulu and Boer Wars and innumerable films, so in a sense we feel we already know it. But the truth is that actually joining a tour here will change all your preconceptions and unveil a side to Africa that is alive and kicking and packed with unexpected interest and excitement. February is the ideal time to visit, as the summer temperatures range between 16 and 27 degrees Celsius and it’s also the end of the tourist season so the city crowds will be less oppressive. There’s a Southern Californian climate, with very little in the way of rain and 11 hours of sunshine each day.
Explore Victoria Falls to Cape Town
Victoria Falls and Cape Town are the twin iconic sights of South Africa, and on this tour of South Africa you get to take in both of them, travelling through the waterways of the Okavango Delta by riverboat, through a sumptuous landscape of swaying reeds and basking crocodiles. Watch elephants come down to drink with their calves on the banks of the Chobe River and camp out on the Namibian sand dunes to enjoy the awesome canopy of stars and listen to hyenas howl in the distance. Antelopes, zebras and rhinos are abundant here in the Etosha National Park, and there are villages of the indigenous San Bushmen and makoro boatmen of the delta region which the guide will lead you through. These people haven’t changed much, if at all, in thousands of years and are as completely at home here as their neighbours the elephants and big cats.
