South African Safari

South Africa is a country of enough contrasts and diversity to satisfy any safari needs. A safari in South Africa is perfect when combining a visit to the many other must see attractions of the Rainbow Nation. The world-famous national parks and wildlife areas; the Kruger, the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal amongst many others, are home to mind-blowing wildlife, including the ‘big five’. They boast superb game viewing opportunities alongside some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa.

Botswana Safari

Botswana is often referred to as one of the wildest regions in Africa, because it offers such diverse safari options in pristine environments. It is a place of endless horizons, with an abundance of wildlife, unspoilt wilderness, splendid waterways, and desert landscapes.

The Okavango Delta is unlike anything else you’ll have seen or experienced. With Cape Tours, you will experience this breath-taking wilderness from the air, water and land. To fly over the Delta in a light aircraft is simply awe-inspiring, and in most cases the only way to reach the more remote camps.

Botswana may be best known for its Delta, but the country also boasts two of Africa’s finest game reserves: Moremi, renowned for its huge herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe and antelope; Chobe, further north, thought to have the highest concentration of elephants in the world. For a thrilling end to a memorable day, take a sunset cruise at Chobe, and watch hundreds of dusty elephants ponderously cavorting with each other at the river’s edge. The Linyanti Region lies within Chobe and here, in the dry season, the concentration of game is such that the visitor will see buffalo by the thousand, followed by sizeable prides of lion.

Namibia Safari (Etosha National Park)

In stark contrast, the Etosha National Park in Namibia, a vast oasis in the semi-desert, offers some of the most extraordinary game-viewing experiences. Consisting of saline desert, Savannah and woodlands and is one of the largest Game Reserves in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5000 square km. Of the 114-mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered whilst others are endemic to north-western Namibia.
