Caprivi

This lush tropical strip of land is both fringed and crossed by wide rivers, including the Zambezi, Kavango (Okavango), Chobe and Linyanti, whose very names conjure up images of lush green floodplains, herds of wildlife and ancient baobabs – a stark contrast to much of the rest of the country.

With so much water, the area supports a greater number of people than almost anywhere else in Namibia, and this in turn gives the Caprivi a very different feel to the rest of the country; in many ways more like parts of Zambia or Botswana.

Botswana is the ultimate safari destination. Here you will experience a traditional big game wildlife safari in one of Botswana’s top destinations. Wildlife and guiding are superb and the service is second to none. Botswana offers a stunning safari experience. The evergreen jewel of the Okavango Delta is at the heart of Botswana’s safari attractions, flanked in the east by the rolling savannah of the Savuti and the teeming elephant paradise of the Chobe.

Clocking in at twice the height of Niagara Falls, the Victoria Falls(zambia side) is one of Africa’s greatest and most-visited attractions. Traditionally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or ‘the Smoke that Thunders’, Vic Falls is often the end-point of a Southern African safari.

Beautiful Zimbabwe is home to warm people and wildlife galore, not to mention the spectacular Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Rwanda has two rainy seasons: the first is from around February to June and the second from September through December. These are separated by two dry seasons: June to September, during which there is often no rainfall at all, and a shorter dry period from December to February. Typically the west and North-west of Rwanda receives more rainfall annually than the South-east and east of the country.
