  • The Chobe National Park is the second largest National Park in Botswana and covers over 15 566 square kilometers. It has one of the greatest concentrations of game found on the African continent and is famous for the number of elephants roaming on the banks of the river. The Chobe River flows lazily through the Caprivi flood plains and provides a haven for huge herds of elephants, zebras, wildebeest, and impala which are closely followed by predators.
  • Discover Victoria Falls “Mosi- ao – Tunya” or the “smoke that thunders” is a must-see spectacle so incredible that it takes one’s breath away. End your tour of the Falls with “The flight of the Angels”, a scenic helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls.

  • Cape Town, known as the “Mother City” is widely described as one of the world’s most desirable and beautiful destinations and is cradled by the natural presence of Table Mountain and forms a backdrop to a land so lovely that it appears to be a fantasy landscape. The beauty of the vineyards in Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek entices visitors to taste the world class wines and cuisine.
  • One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain is Cape Town’s centerpiece. A trip on the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain allows you to see the views of Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 Years and the beautiful Atlantic seaboard coastline.
