South Africa

We have two distinctly different tours operating within South Africa - all geared to providing you with a very unique perspective of this wonderful country of ours.

The 5-Day Kruger Park Safari is tailor-made for those wanting a wonderful taste of our renowned bushveld, Drifters style. Lots of games, and lots of exquisite scenery courtesy of the Mpumalanga Lowveld with quaint, historic towns, majestic waterfalls and ancient mountain ranges.


If Namibia is your ultimate destination, then try our 12-day Namibia Camping Safari, taking in the wonders of the Namib - the oldest desert in the world - including Sossusvlei, and Spitskop, and the desolate beauty of the Skeleton Coast with multiple shipwrecks and seal colonies en-route to Etosha National Park. Or if you want to include Namibia into a Southern African experience, our 24-Day Cape Town - Johannesburg via Victoria Falls Tour will give you 10 days in this beautiful country.


We offer a number of trips that take in the wonders of Botswana - a country of wonderful contadictions. Our 16-Day Overland Camping Safari will take you from desert conditions into the lush Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls. This is 16 days of wonderful experiences and plentiful game - over a quarter of the country is dedicated to wildlife sanctuaries. Take in the incredible Makgadikgadi Salt Pans en-route to maun and the Delta, before heading into Big Game country, visiting the renowned Moremi, Savuti and Chobe reserves. For those wanting to avoid the drive in and out of Botswana, we offer a 13-Day Okavango Fly-in option - fly into Maun and out from Victoria Falls. Our 24-Day Southern Circle Tour also includes a section that takes in the Makgadikgadi Pans and the spectacular Reserves, whilst our 24-Day Cape Town - Johannesburg via Victoria Falls will give you an Okavango Delta experience en-route to Victoria Falls.

Our 24-Day Southern Circle will also introduce you to the delights of this melting pot.
