There's SO much more to South Africa than Cape Town and the Winelands - we love those places too, but we are on a mission to share what we believe to be the country's most exciting region by far - KwaZulu Natal! From the dynamic melting-pot of Durban, with its history, culture, beautiful beaches and exquisite food, to the wild northern coast running all the way to the Mozambique border and game parks offering the true safari experience - this itinerary has it all.
Eleven days in the warm heart of Africa - including the highlands of the Zomba plateau, the wildlife of Liwonde National Park and the serenity of Lake Malawi. And don't forget the thrill of the open road with the independence that self-drive allows
This incredible itinerary is a superb introduction to Mozambique, combining as it does wildlife and nature, city life and lazy days on white sand beaches.. Your trip begins in one of Africa's best eco-tourism destinations. Gongorosa National Park, while popular with discerning nature and wildlife afficianados, is yet to be rediscovered by most travellers. Leaving with memories for a lifetime, get ready for a change of pace as you spend two nights in the capital of Mozambique, the historic city of Maputo. Learn about life on a city tour with an expert guide, shop for souvenirs and dine on delicious seafood. The final part of your tour takes you to the coastal paradise of Vilanculos for a laid-back few days relaxing on pristine beaches, visiting the nearby islands in a traditional dhow, snorkelling or just being busy doing nothing.
South Africa is a fantastic place to rent a car and head off exploring. On this itinerary you will experience some of the less-visited areas of the Western Cape as well a few classic destinations. This is not your standard "Cape Town, Winelands and the Garden Route" circuit that any travel agent can sell you off the shelf.
