Southern Africa’s safari regions are spread across 6 countries and big distances – don’t underestimate these! Johannesburg and Cape Town are the main international flight hubs, with many regional airports. Charter flights can be booked into all safari regions.

If you’d like to add some time at the beach, the warmer waters are on the east coast – there are great experiences awaiting on the Bazaruto islands off Vilanculos, Mauritius, North Island in the Seychelles, and the ecologically fascinating Madagascar.


Yellow: arid desert or semi-desert – there is less game, but you can still have remarkable sightings, plus magnificent landscapes.

Green: Mix of savanna and woodlands, richer in game.

Blue: Major rivers, lakes, dams and the Okavango Delta.
