Explore Africa on a budget

22 December 2017

Touring Africa is a stunning way to spend this time of year. Skip out on a cliched white Christmas, the threat of being stranded at a European airport in a snowstorm, and the madness of big cities that everyone else is rushing to. Africa has some delightful gems to visit, which are not only conveniently close but will also show you a new side of this spectacular continent.

A coastal gem, Swakopmund is just west of Namibia’s capital, Windhoek. Imagine being sandwiched between the red, towering dunes of the Namib desert and the dark blue rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean. It is such a stunning contrast that it seems like something out of a movie, and is just one of many gorgeous sights to behold while you’re in this stunning part of Africa. Our Swakopmund deal will even come with a Dolphin and Seal Catamaran Cruise, along with a half-day Living Desert Tour, ultimately showing you the very best the Namib Desert and the Atlantic ocean has to offer!

Mozambique is famed for some of life’s greatest things: fresh, bountiful seafood, white powdery beaches that overlook the Indian Ocean, interesting wildlife and exciting land and water safaris. Perfect for romantic getaways, family holidays and anyone wanting to escape the craziness of city life, Mozambique is a stunning choice for this time of year. Our Mozambican deal will take you to the four-star Massinga Beach where you can enjoy a stretch of endless, remarkably private beach along with activities such as kayaking, snorkelling and rock fishing to pass your time. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included daily, and you will enjoy the comforts of an Ocean Front Deluxe room, which opens up onto an intimate deck and splash pool where you can take in the 180 degree view of the coastline.

Victoria Falls
One of earth’s greatest spectacles, Victoria Falls is a mile-long curtain of water whose sheer volume and power will not disappoint those who have made the journey to see it. You also have direct access to famous national parks such as Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls National Park and Mosi-oa-tunya National Park where you can see the likes of hippo, elephants, crocodiles, dozens of birds and many antelope. You can also enjoy exciting opportunities such as a sunset river cruise on the Zambezi River or sitting on the edge of Victoria Falls’ “Devil’s Pool”, not to mention river rafting or bungee jumping if you’re an adrenaline junkie. Our Victoria Falls deal will take you to the lovely Cresta Sprayview Hotel, one of Victoria Falls’ most affordable hotels and just 1.4 kilometres from the entrance to the Victoria Falls Rainforest—a perfect springboard to explore this beautiful part of Africa from!
