Southern Africa by small group.  How else?  We’ll join up with local friends who will give us their “insider’s view” of this remarkable region.  Best in Show land- and sea-scapes?  The Cape of Good Hope – with stunning Table Mountain, and the dramatic meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans; the otherworldly winelands of Franschoek and Stellenbosch; the grasslands and riverine settings of Chobe, and the world’s biggest waterfall.

Observe a remarkable diversity of flora and fauna, from penguins and whales, to the spectacle of the world’s biggest land animals.  And, discover the cultural rainbow of the new South Africa: a bourgeoning economy and melting pot population; tribal art; the colonial architecture of Dutch and French Huguenot farmers.
