(This list is in no particular order and there are so many, we found it hard to restrict to just 10)
Victoria Falls - Also known as ‘Mosi - oa - Tunya’ – ‘the smoke that thunders’. It is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is considered to be one of the world's largest waterfall due to its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft). The river plunges 100m into a vertical chasm. This creates the greatest curtain of falling water in the world and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Victoria Falls can be visited when staying in either Zambia or Zimbabwe. When visiting the Falls there is a variety of activities to excite adventure junkies – bungee jumping, white river rafting, swimming in a natural pool on the edge of the falls, helicopter flights as well as the more sedate sunset river cruises. There is also a number of Parks to explore.
Okavango Delta – It is not a UNESCO World Heritage site for no reason. Glide through the Okavango on a traditional mokoro, explore the islands on foot taking in magnificent scenery, view game, birds, insects, medicinal plants, tracks, signs, droppings, and other fascinating natural phenomena.
Cape Town - Hike up Table Mountain (Or take the cable care if you wish), taste some of the best South African wines whilst taking in the views of the vineyards, visit the penguins in Simon’s Town and so much more. This city and the surrounds have so much to offer.
Kaapsehoop - In the Greater Kruger, nestled in the Drakensberg mountain range, 1486 m above sea level, you will find the quaint historic mining town of Kaapsehoop, which is today famous for being home to the wild horses. Kaapsehoop has a lovely laid back, artistic, hippie vibe which allows visitors to immediately feel relaxed upon arrival Take a horse ride with not a single worry in the world amongst the wild horses, through the plantations and up onto the escarpment where there were the most breath-taking views. For those that are not keen on horses, take a walk along the escarpment and to visit the waterfalls, try your hand at pottery making, painting, and enjoy South Africa’s version of ‘Stonehenge’ with the unusual rock formations.
Coastline of Mozambique – The coasts of Mozambique have lots to offer in the way of activities from deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding and much more. Mozambique is also a wonderful destination to enjoy whale watching during the months of July to November every year as the Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whales make their annual migration along the Mozambican coastline on their way to and from their winter breeding grounds. Certain parts of the coastline also play host to both Loggerhead and Leatherback turtle nesting sites. The emergence of the hatchlings normally occurs from December through to late March
Kruger National Park – Larger than Israel, Kruger National Park is the largest and most famous game reserve in South Africa. Operated by the South African National Parks Board it is arguably the emblem of South African tourism and is a must visit when in South Africa. Kruger National Park and the neighbouring private reserves, which make up the Greater Kruger, offer some of the best game viewing in Africa.
Track Desert Elephants in Namibia – Desert adapted elephants are only found in 2 places in the World, of which Namibia is one of them. The number of desert adapted elephants is something highly disputed. However, the one thing is certain is they are rare, and to see them in the desert is pretty spectacular. These adapted elephants travel in smaller groups than your typical African elephants so that there is less pressure on the group to find the amount of food a large herd would need. They are also able to go several days without drinking any water, which together with their ability to walk long distances, helps them get from one oasis to the next.
Canoe the lower Zambezi – What better way to experience one of Africa most famous rivers than at water level in a canoe. The Lower Zambezi weaves through some of the most incredible wildlife regions.
