    World Heritage Mapungubwe National Park - Land of the Giants.

    This South African park, lying on the Limpopo River and bordering Zimbabwe and Botswana, is part of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area. It is renowned for its scenic landscapes, unique sandstone formations, baobab trees and wildlife - which freely roams between the three countries. In addition the park contains historic Mapungubwe Hill, home to a prosperous African civilisation, who traded with Egypt, India and China, from 1200-1270 AD. A guided tour of the park's state of the art Interpretive Centre, to learn of this history, is a must!

    Mountain Zebra National Park is another of South Africa's lesser known national parks.
    And what a gem it is! Located near Craddock in the Eastern Cape the park was established to protect the Cape mountain zebra. Nowadays the zebra population has grown to over 750 and the park also features lesser seen antelope species including hartebeest, blesbok, kudu, eland and springbok. On top of this both cheetah and lion have been reintroduced and it is a great place to see many of the nocturnal species including aardvark, porcupine and aardwolf.

    A trip to see the mountain gorillas in Uganda / Rwanda just has to be on your bucket list! The memory of spending an hour with these incredible primates will stay with you forever - just ask David Attenborough!

    Whilst Rwanda has recently put up the price of a gorilla permit to a whopping USD$1,500 per person, Uganda's Wildlife Authority has confirmed that for the next three years (until the end of 2019) their permit price will remain at USD$600 per person.

    Whilst this may seem a lot, everything goes back into the conservation efforts so that generations to come will still be able to see these magnificent apes.

    Thinking about a trip to see the gorillas? Then maybe consider Uganda!

    Let your soul feed on the magic of the Kalahari Desert!

    Visit the lesser known Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, a park managed across the South African and Botswana borders, and go in search of black maned lions and startling gemsbok (oryx).

    A self drive adventure here is more than worthwhile with a range of options awaiting - from camping in unfenced campsites to luxuriating in affordable wilderness camps.

    Situated in South Africa's north-west corner this is an amazing park to visit and to combine with a trip to Namibia.

    SOME HAPPY TRAVELLERS


    • 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.

    • 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…
