Nestled between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia, the Republic of Botswana is a land of stark beauty and tremendous contrast. Although dominated by the vast Kalahari Desert, the largest stretch of sand on Earth, Botswana is also home to the life-sustaining Okavango Delta. It is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world and, as a result, contains some of the most pristine and uninterrupted wildlife habitat on the continent. Chobe National Park alone encompasses more than 11, 000 square kilometres - the size of a small country. This makes it the ideal place for spotting resident elephants and zebras, hippos and rhinos, African wild dogs, meerkats, cheetahs and hyenas, Cape buffalos and blue wildebeest, more than 400 species of birds, and even black-manned lions and the reclusive leopard.
Situated on the equator and home to colossal, 5199 metre high Mt Kenya, the Republic of Kenya is a country that will quickly capture your heart with its unforgettable landscapes, colourful native peoples, bustling city scene and some of the best safari territory in the world. It's a place where you may find yourself hand-feeding giraffes one moment...and marvelling at brilliant, unfamiliar constellations the next. Here, rolling savannahs give way to soaring highlands, windswept moors, sparkling lakes, beckoning coastline, and life-sustaining farmland - and from sun up to sun down the air is filled with a symphony of birdsong, trumpeting elephants, roaring felines, chattering baboons, barking zebras and chanting tribesmen.
The southernmost country in Africa and "Cradle of Civilization", South Africa is one of the planet's most remarkable tapestries of nature, wildlife, history and culture. It is the site of some of the oldest civilizations in the world, as well as unmatched modern multiculturism. South Africa's constitution recognizes 11 official languages - more than any other country! It is a place where exotic wildlife awaits; the famed 'Big Five' as well as cheetahs, hippos, giraffes,, penguins, whales, sharks, crocodiles, leatherback sea turtles and a jaw-dropping number of bird species, and where rugged sea coasts lead to mountains, forests, deserts, farmland and colourful cities.
When Tanganyika and Zanzibar united in 1964, they created Tanzania, a paradise of magnificent scenery, culture, wildlife and adventure. Within its border is a virtual treasure trove of attractions that includes the legendary Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Great Rift Valley and the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar. It's a country whose distinctive geography offers up little of everything: mountains and deserts, rivers and lakes, islands and tropical rainforests, volcanoes and waterfalls ... and those red-clad Maasai warriors and semi-nomadic tribesmen make an unforgettable impression with their traditions and warm hospitality. And, yes, this is the land that wrote the book on safaris. Permanent, year-round water supplies make Tanzania the site of the Great Migration, one of the greatest natural spectacles on Earth. With millions of zebras, Cape buffalo and wildebeest congregating among resident elephants, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, hippos, rhinos, crocodiles, hundreds of species of birds and the lergest concentration of baboons in the world, it's little wonder that Tanzania is one of the most popular travel destinations on the continent.
Believed to be the ancient land of Ophir mentioned in the Bible, which sent King Solomon regular shipments of precious resources, Zimbabwe was once a highway of trade for the Portuguese and Arabs. Today, this south-central African nation beckons visitors from around the world with a different treasure: awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Here, mist-shrouded rainbows span craggy cliffs and the persistent roar of the falls is mesmerizing. With its friendly people and rich culture steeped in tradition and spirit, Zimbabwe is the perfect complement to any African safari.
