Favourite Destination


Most Treasured Travel Experience

Cruising the Chobe River and enjoying spectacular wildlife viewing of hippopotamuses lolling around in the water and watching elephants and giraffes graze within meters of our boat. The interaction between the various wildlife species left me mesmerized for hours.

Game driving in the Botswana, where I saw a large wild dog pack with pups running less than five meters away from the safari vehicle and witnessing  the precision of wild dogs hunting – all on the same game drive.

Awe-inspiring Africa
Very positive. We were told by many people prior to our trip how dangerous Johannesburg was, but if you are sensible that will not be your experience.
