Kenya offers Africa’s most traditional safari experience with open plains and an amazing array of wildlife. Whether you want to witness the Great Migration, climb Mount Kenya or relax on tropical beaches, this country has a lot to offer.
Gorilla or Chimpanzee Tracking in Rwanda and Uganda (as well as the Mahale Mountains in Tanzania for chimps) is a life-changing event, an experience not to be missed.
Zanzibar Island – Unguja to the locals – is a dream destination. With a troubled history, it is a fascinating part of the world which now enjoys peace and relative prosperity. Zanzibar is renowned for its beauty and beaches.
The gem of East Africa, Tanzania offers world-class game viewing in the Serengeti and other national parks, the chance to scale Africa’s highest mountain, not to mention palm-fringed beaches and Zanzibar Island.
Indian Ocean Islands
The Indian Ocean is the third largest body of water in the world and nestled in its warm waters are a number of spectacular tropical islands. Superb beaches and a fantastic variety of adventure activities and watersports.
An utterly unique island, Madagascar is like nowhere else on earth! Circled by breathtaking beaches, Madagascar lies some 400km off the coast of Africa. It is famous for its lemurs, chameleons, elephant birds and enchanting mix of Afro-Polynesian culture.
A simply stunning destination, Mozambique is one of southern Africa’s best-kept secrets. White sand beaches and azure Indian Ocean combine to offer one of the world’s most unspoilt seaside holidays!
A country of contrasts and charm, Zambia offers a unique African experience. Get drenched by the mighty Victoria Falls, enjoy a sunset cruise down the Zambezi River, spot wildlife in Kafue National Park and do a walking safari in South Luangwa.
Victoria Falls is a spectacular waterfall and one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World. The mile-wide Falls plunge into a 300ft gorge creating a spray that has given them the nickname ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.
The Okavango Delta has something to offer all travellers. Cruise down the web of rivers in a dugout canoe, experience a wildlife safari in the bush and relax at the end of the day in a luxury lodge.
Namibia is quite simply unique. Many other countries in Africa boast teeming wildlife and gorgeous scenery, but few can claim such limitless horizons and huge untamed wilderness areas. It’s your chance to roam the wide open spaces!
Botswana has it all – unrivaled wildlife, friendly people and breathtaking, unspoiled landscapes! The magnificent ebb and flow of water in the Okavango Delta is spellbinding, while the safari experience in the Chobe National Park is second to none.
Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park is the wild heart of Africa’s Big Game Country. Rugged, exhilarating and breathtaking – there is no better safari destination. It’s home to some of the world’s finest lodges. Oh, and it’s bigger than Israel by the by, so you might want to take your time…
South Africa is a country of breathtaking diversity – from the people who speak eleven different national languages, to the magnificent landscapes.
The Garden Route is known for the spectacular stretch of coast between Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth including pristine beaches, glistening seas teeming with whales and dolphins, riverine forests and several malaria-free safari destinations.
A little piece of Europe at the tip of Africa, it’s no surprise that Cape Town was chosen by Jan Van Riebeck as the ideal replenishing station for trading ships. It’s also the home of Icon Expeditions!
