“In Africa you have space…there a profound sense of space here, space and sky” –Thabo Mbeki


Victoria falls Victorius

into Livingstone

To Kalagadi where rivers of ochre reign.

Okavango

Clicking sounds and crocodiles pop

up under Makoros.

Towards Turtles in Zanzibar

Skeletons keep their secrets on the coast

Acacia crackles with flame

Sunrise on the Island

I am home again.

Go back in time to the ageless desert with stories of the Ancient forefathers.  Explore the vast space of sand and sky. Visit the Skeleton Coast, haunted by greed and diamonds, now a gravesite for ships and broken dreams. Stars as you will never have imagined in the navy sky. This place keeps its secrets close. Further North, experience the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park home to Eland, Blue Wildebeeste, Springbok, Gemsbok and the mighty black maned lions.  Gorgeous places with names like Kieliekrankel and Sossusvlei await you in this place you think ‘God’s forgotten’ but realise soon enough ‘God’s place of stars’ here. Choose between chartered flights of driving, where luxury accommodation awaits you. Windhoek is the capital city, vibrant, a cultural haven of Herero, German, British, Afrikaans and many other cultures that have chosen this as their home.

Fall in love with gold, ochre, reds and yellows. With indigo, navy and Azure. Fall in love with space, where time stands still and you can breath again.

It’s often we hear from travellers that they would love to go to Botswana and her neighbouring territories, such as Zimbabwe and Zambia, but the costs are so high!  Then they spend hours trying to surf the Net for self catering or self-driving, only to realise that there is a reason for the fully inclusive package.  And the reason is …

Botswana is made up of Private Concession areas, and these are where you will find the luxury lodges.  This is also where you will find the best experience.  These lodges and the companies that own and run them, take care of all your needs, from transport to game viewing, to superb accommodation and dining experiences. The exclusivity of these Lodges and their surroundings mean tourists are limited, which offers more privacy and of course a more intimate experience.  Going on Game drives in the early morning and in the evening, the guides are highly experienced to point out any game and have an excellent knowledge of the area.  The Tour Operators we work with are & Beyond and Wilderness Safaris, two of the most trusted for safari’s to Africa and we have never been disappointed, neither have our clients.  When you want the best, get the best. Chose the best itineraries taking you to the Okavango Delta as far up as Chobe-Linyanti.  Days can be extended into Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls or the Kalahari.

To quote a fellow lover of Africa, Bert, who owns Fish Eagle Safari’s in Houston, Texas … when he says: ‘Most people do not return to Africa year after year, so for them it is a wise investment to spend a bit more in order to enjoy the proverbial trip of a lifetime.’  We agree Bert.

Once in a lifetime should be the best of a lifetime.

Zambia beckons with abundant wildlife, luxurious lodges and adventure.  Walking trails, canoeing and game drives are the order of the day.  Untouched heaven, late afternoon languishing with views that will take your breath away.  Combine your days in Zambia, on the edge of Victoria Falls with a visit to Zimbabwe, right on the other side.

Travel to Hwanga to see one of the largest concentration of Elephants in Africa, or visit the Zimbabwe Ruins to trace the history of the peoples of this continent.  Visit Mana Pools and the choices are endless.  Tiger fishing in the Kariba.  If Adventure is your middle name, what about some bungee jumping over the Victoria Falls.  The mighty Zambezi will thrill any water sports junkie, and the savannahs at sunset will calm the soul.

Some travel to Mauritius to play on the many pristine golf courses, some to partake in watersports, and some, to indulge in the ultimate Beach holiday of sun, surf and luxury.  Mauritius is a tropical island as welcoming as her people with a choice of the best hotels. Fishing, snorkelling, samba dancing in the evenings.  Explore the old Colonial buildings, the Botanic gardens and while your time away if you want … doing nothing at all.  The views are guaranteed to take your breath away. Island happiness.
