  • You can almost hear the spirit voices of yesteryear telling tales of Livingstone's extraordinary exploits in Africa. You can almost hear the voices of old hunters discussing the marauding elephant that wouldn't go away. Here you will find every kind of tribute to African creative talent and imagination. An exhilarating game drive and sighting the magnificent buffalo is a sight to remember for ever. You hear it before you see it. A rumble that grows to a roar. There are no words to describe the awe-inspiring sight. The mighty Victoria Falls.

  • For longs years it was gripped by a bitter and cruel civil war. The scars still show but the people are happy, upbeat and industrious. Now peace is like a port after stormy seas. The African sun follows its own clock and once set you'd best hurry. Sailing in a dhow with lateen rigged sail and harnessing the wind as centuries of seafarers have before, the flat seas of the Mozambique Channel are entirely unique. An unforgettable experience! The Mozambican water is clear and the richly populated reefs swarm with green turtles, butterfly fish, angel fish, sea anemones' an underwater paradise and a fisherman's delight!

  • From the gracious colonial style station which dates back to 1943 to the first hiss of steam, the huff and chuckle of the pistons and the slowly accelerating clackety-clack of the wheels over the tracks, you know you are in for an unforgettable adventure. The northern Transvaal of South Africa is utterly breathtaking. The sheer cliffs, the waterfalls and the noble expanse of sky and horizon all compete to entrance the eye. No visit to Africa is complete without a game drive and a Rovos adventure is no exception. Soon you are crossing over the Zambezi, that most romantic of Africa's rivers, and on the descent into Zambia. No matter how many times you see the Victoria Falls, it's such an awesome spectacle you never get over it. David Livingstone wrote; "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight" - He's right. They thundered before we were born and will thunder on after we are gone.

  • There's an old saying that goes something like this; "A man is afraid three times: when he first sees a lion spoor; when he first hears a lion call; and when he first sees a lion when he's on foot." At Makenyane situated in South Africa's north-west province, even the elephants - the real kings of the jungle - respect lions. At Makenyane there is an important lion research project on the go and there is nothing like waking in the night to the call of a lion or a hyena shrieking to remind you that you are in a place of primal beauty. You watch and wonder at the gifts of Africa. Just beyond the Magaliesberg Mountains, near the ancient extinct volcano of the Pilanesberg, you will find Boekenhout Lodge. Built on the site of the old homestead of Paul Kruger, once president of the Transvaal Republic during the Second World War of Independence with Britain in 1899. Gnarled by past hardships , transcended and mutated into strength - some of this strength is visible in the old house, home of a family that loved the land and reveled in nature. Twenty seven thousand Afrikaners died in the war against the British; of those twenty two thousand were women and children. Now the animals have come back to the land around the Kruger house. The past is another country, they do things differently there?!?
