Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland Tour
This tour combines the land of unrelenting sun, where the ground seems to beg the heavens for rain, and the landscapes stretch uninterrupted for hundreds of kilometres on end. Deserts where one gazes in wonder and amazement at the animals and plants that survive in this harsh environment, with South Africa a haven of spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, diverse cultures and first world norms, topped with a healthy and invigorating climate. These qualities make it an adventure not to be missed. This tour covers all of the highlights of central and southern Namibia, South Africa, the Garden Route, Swaziland the Mountain Kingdom and naturally the famous Kruger National Park. Boasting climatic differences from searing hot desert to snow-capped peaks, and varied cultures, from the primitive Bushman to the most Western of ways.
We visit the highlights, and overnight stops are mostly at Lodges in pristine reserves where extensive conservation and game introduction projects have created truly unique accommodations and surroundings. The tour requires a certain amount of flexibility and an adventurous mentality. The Mpumalanga area is one of great contrast, bordered in the west by the towering escarpment with lush indigenous forests, crystal-clear streams and plunging waterfalls, and then falling away into the flat Lowveld bushveld, home to one of the richest diversities of fauna and flora in the world.
