Tour Details

The diversity of luxury travel and safari opportunities in Southern Africa is immense. A trip to South Africa not only shows you the country’s eclectic cultural mix and widely varied landscapes, but it also offers you excellent safari game viewing. 

Travel in open four-wheel-drive vehicles for unobstructed views of the bush. On a Southern Africa safari, stay in some of the country’s best luxury lodges with opportunities to spot game from the front door. 

For a different experience, head down through the Cape Winelands to sample varieties of South Africa’s premium wines. In Cape Town, discover luxury hotels, a gorgeous harbor and top restaurants and shopping.

View Zambia’s wildlife on walking safari tours and on leisurely boat rides on the Zambezi River. Don’t miss the spectacular cascades of Victoria Falls, the jewel of Southern Africa and a natural wonder shared by Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Botswana’s luxury camps and lodges are consistently named the world’s best, and a safari here takes you deep into the hidden oasis in an otherwise water-starved land – to spot the local wildlife. Go on a Southern Africa safari tour in Botswana’s Chobe National Park to see the highest concentration of elephants in South Africa.
