    Wonderful news - the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and the #Khomani San Landscape have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

    This off-the-beaten track area of South Africa is so worth visiting to learn about the amazing culture of the #Khomani San, to immerse yourself in desert landscapes or go in search of black-maned lions.

    Travel Africa can help you visit this area - perfect when combined with Namibia!

    • The advice we got from Travel Africa was brilliant and we had an amazing trip. They helped us choose an itinerary that suited us perfectly. It was just the right mix of seeing animals, meeting locals and enjoying the wonderful landscapes. My husband even got a surf in at world famous Jeffrey’s Bay…

    • We wholeheartedly recommend Travel Africa to anyone interested in independent travel. As a family of four with kids aged 5 and 7, we had a great time thanks to the help of Travel Africa, who gave us so much local knowledge and practical advice. Their guidance with planning this trip was excellent.

    • Travel Africa certainly provide individual service. Chris listened to what we wanted to do and made suggestions to make a perfect itinerary. Everywhere we stayed was great but Kruger was a definite highlight. We enjoyed a great trip and thanks to Chris and the team for showing us the diversity of South Africa.

    • What a fabulous trip! It lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We like to be independent and not part of a tour group, so fitted the bill to a tee. Don’t be put off by the naysayers, yes you have to exercise caution and be a bit street smart. At 71 years of age the driving for me was not daunting, giving you the freedom to see and do what you wanted. Full marks for the selection of accommodation, from ‘’Out of Africa lodges” to boutique.

    • We had the trip of a lifetime thanks to Travel Africa! After talking to a number of travel companies, Chris was the first travel consultant to make me feel at ease. He went on to build us the most perfect honeymoon holiday in Namibia! He truly brought our honeymoon dreams to light. From trekking with the white Rhinos to climbing the biggest sand dune, our trip was truly unforgettable. It wouldn’t have been possible without Travel Africa! Can’t wait to use their services next time we visit Africa.

    • An amazing trip to Kruger!! I will be back for sure and will book with Travel Africa again. Everything was seemless and I cannot explain all the incredible things that happened – from full moon partial eclipse to having brunch at Lower Sabie as the buffalo herd drank on the river bank to seeing lions just after their kill. Thank you Travel Africa!
