Namibia

Namibia is a diverse and unique country full of wide horizons, endless stretches of golden desert dunes and rocky plains so unusual they don’t seem to come from this world. This vast, rugged, and pristine land is a haven for wildlife, nature, and cultures that are quintessentially African, and yet so unique in many ways.

In the interior, the escarpment of a north–south plateau slopes away to the east and north into the vast interior sand basin of the Kalahari. In the far northwest, the 66,000 sq km (25,500 sq miles) of the Kaokoland mountains run along the coast, while further inland lies the Etosha Pan (a dried-out saline lake), surrounded by grasslands and bush which support a large and varied wildlife. The Etosha National Park & Game Reserve is the third largest in Africa, owes its unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast shallow depression edged by waterholes to the south which guarantee rewarding game viewing.

Tanzania

Home to Africa’s tallest mountain (Kilimanjaro), the unique Ngorongoro Crater and the expanses of the Serengeti, it is here that the world’s last great migration still occurs on an annual basis – with an excess of a million wildebeest travelling an extensive route, along with huge numbers of gazelle and zebra. Yet, there is still a lot more to see in this vast (nearly twice the size of Kenya), pristine land. The famous Selous Reserve is to the South of the country, with the unique Ruaha and Katavi Reserves close by, whilst Chimpanzee still roam free in the Mahale Mountains National Park. You can visit historical Dar es Salaam, with excellent beach destinations to the south of the city. Tanzania also offers the visitor unique cultural experiences, breath-taking scenery and abundant wildlife.

Uganda

This relatively small country is in the heart of the Great Lakes region, with Lakes Victoria, Edward and Albert all forming parts of the border. Although Uganda may be best known for its stable population of Mountain Gorillas (half of all that remain in the wild), it is also here that you can see Chimpanzee and some ten other species of primate. Uganda is also home to the source of the Nile, the magnificent Rwenzori Mountains, and offers visitors spectacular scenery and adventure pursuits, such as white water rafting, trekking and mountaineering. Uganda may have had a turbulent recent history, but is very much a country where tourists are welcomed. Much has been done in terms of wildlife protection, and visitors to the National Parks are rewarded with some excellent wildlife viewing. Lake Victoria is also famous for excellent fishing, and is also home to numerous small islands, one of which is the famous Ngamba Chimpanzee Reserve.

Zambia

Zambia may still be surprisingly unknown as a destination, but it offers an extensive network of pristine Game Reserves, natural beauty, and is also the other home of the Victoria Falls. Zambia is also famous for walking safari, as pioneered in the South Luangwa National Park. Although many of the lodges do offer the more conventional game drives, it is here that you can enjoy extensive walking safaris – surely one of the best ways to experience nature. The geography of Zambia allows for areas of extensive plains (as in the extensive Kafue National Park), swamps at Bangweulu, wetlands at Lochinvar, and the beauty of the Zambezi River, including the Lower Zambezi National Park. Although the rainy season means that some travel is less easy between November and April, a surprising number of properties do stay open, and visitors get to enjoy the extensive birdlife, game viewing and the vegetation at its most lush. Livingstone, across the Zambezi from the town of Victoria Falls is also known as the adrenalin capital of Zambia – where you can do white water rafting, bungee jumping, elephant back rides, and a such breath taking activities as gorge swings and flying foxes.

The Seychelles

Paradise on earth is the only way to describe this cluster of some 115 Tropical Islands scattered in the Indian Ocean just 4 degrees south of the Equator.

Uninhabited until recent times, the islands of the Seychelles are stunningly beautiful, and environmentally unspoiled.

The climate is a perfect 24 – 30°C, (75 – 86°F) from May to September, the South East wind season; the warmest season is October to April when light North Westerly winds allow temperatures to rise to 32°C, 90°F.

Many of the islands are ‘private’ – offering total seclusion and privacy.

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.
