Southern Africa

No wonder family safaris prove popular here, with Red Savannah's expertise providing the right balance between luxury and adventure, ensuring excellent cuisine, service and suites are matched by each location's natural appeal. Indeed, few places on earth express such monumental diversity as does the continent's south, from flying safaris over the vast red dunes of Namibia to the immense Victoria Falls plunging between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Coastal southern Africa hits another note again, with world class vineyards and restaurants, fashionable boutiques and private beach houses nestled on pearl-white sands. And then there's peaceful Mozambique - a rapidly emerging destination with azure seas, challenging diving and resorts to rival the Seychelles. Southern Africa is especially popular for whale watching holidays, with southern right whales reaching South Africa in June, where they remain along the Cape until November.

Botswana Safaris-Camp Kalahari


A landscape teeming with wildlife and sensational safari lodges, Botswana is one of Africa's biggest success stories. Come to experience the stunning beauty of the world's largest inland Delta - the Okavango, the vastness of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the animal action of the Chobe National Park and the extraordinary isolation of the Makgadikgadi salt pans, home to those beloved meercats, where you can drive for miles across a surreal lunar landscape and still arrive at nowhere. Botswana will be one of the most subtle, memorable and luxurious safari experiences of your life.

For those who prefer to not follow the crowds Malawi is an excellent choice. Bordered by Tanzania and Zambia to the north and Mozambique to the south, it is considered by many to be Africa's best-kept secret. And whilst it may be landlocked, the 'warm heart of Africa' has some of the best beaches on the continent. Indeed a holiday here is as much about water as it is about mountainous plateaus and beautiful riverside parks populated by hippo and elephant. The untouched beaches and isolated islands of Lake Malawi are like nowhere else.

One of the last beach paradises on earth. Remote expanses of pearl-white sand, warm Indian Ocean waters, unexplored island archipelagos - Mozambique offers a sandy adventure like no other. With foot-long prawns, South African wines, charming people, no jet lag (only two hours ahead of GMT) and a subaquatic world so untouched that just to snorkel here is like swimming in an aquarium, Africa's rising star offers over 2,500km of absolutely exquisite coastline, some of the best diving in the world, and a unique culture where African, Iberian and Brazilian influences meet.

The desert to end all deserts. Breathtakingly big but also the second least-densely populated country in the world, this vast land of contrasts is starkly beautiful and hauntingly unforgettable. From the rugged mountains of Damaraland and the towering sunburnt-orange dunes of Sossusvlei to the crusty dry pans of the Namib itself, the magnificent game of the Etosha National Park, and the spectacular no-man's land of the Skeleton Coast - Namibia will remain with you forever. Come to see nature at its best, and to marvel at man's insignificance in the grand scheme of the universe. Mind-blowing.

Stunning game parks, the mighty Zambezi River and the majestic Victoria Falls; Zambia offers dramatic scenery and action-packed adventures like nowhere else. Wonderfully unspoilt and surprisingly unexplored, Zambia is home to some of Africa's most gorgeous wilderness. A wild and deeply authentic place to go on safari, Zambia is where you can really get close to nature - spotting elephant, lion, giraffe and buffalo, - and visit one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, the beautifully romantic Victoria Falls, with all its mists and sprays. It's no surprise that locals call this the 'real Africa'.
