Location

This safari trip will take place at Kruger National Park in South Africa, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and Chobe National Park in Botswana.

South Africa

South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. It has 2,798 kilometers of coastline that stretches along the South Atlantic and Indian oceans. The coast has pristine, some uninhabited beaches, rugged mountains while the interior is a contrast with its vast desert plains, mountainous towering peaks, jungle-like regions, and bushveld.

The natural and cultural diversity, as well as the authenticity of the African people, combined with the sophistication and comfort of European influence, gives an absolutely unique atmosphere that is found nowhere else in the world.

Zimbabwe

It is bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique, has 16 official languages with English the main language used in the education and judiciary systems and Shona and Ndebele being most common. The present territory was first demarcated by Cecil John Rhodes’ British South African Company during the 1890s.

Zimbabwe is the image you conjure up when dreaming of Africa, vast plains of game, bushveld, small hills, the “Big Five”, the impressive shores of Lake Kariba, the Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls and offering tradition, culture and spirituality for an unforgettable experience.

Botswana

This country is seen as an African Miracle achieving a high rate of economic growth while maintaining a solid commitment to democracy and politically the most stable country in Africa.

The official language of Botswana is English although Setswana is widely spoken across the country. In Setswana, prefixes are more important than they are in many other languages. These prefixes include Bo, which refers to the country, Ba, which refers to the people, Mo, which is one person, and Se which is the language.

For example, the main tribe of Botswana is the Tswana people, hence the name Botswana for its country. The people as a whole are Batswana, one person is a Motswana, and the language they speak is Setswana.
