Horse riding in the Okavango Delta – cantering alongside the elegant motion of a giraffe is an experience that you will never forget. The breath taking excitement of silently progressing along game paths used only by animals brings you into direct contact with wild herds of elephants and buffalo. This is as close to nature as you will ever get.

Cape Town and Livingstone Rovos rail journey – There can be nothing more romantic than visiting two of Southern Africa’s most popular destinations, taken by the Rovos Rail luxury train, opening up a world of vast natural beauty. A train journey through South Africa has an aura of mystique about it; its very name has become synonymous with the ultimate in luxury and personal service. The journey consists of 4 nights on board the Rovos train and 1 night in Pretoria, which can easily be added to a trip to South Africa or Livingstone.

A canoe safari down the Selinda Spillway in Botswana – imagine that you’re one of the early pioneers of this amazing area when the days were spent exploring the water channels by canoe and the evenings were spent camping on river banks. A holiday to Botswana is like no other experience you will ever have in Africa, Botswana is one of the most untamed and free ranging countries in the world.
