Zanzibar’s allure is legendary. One of East Africa’s great trading centres, the archipelago has been for centuries a crossroads of culture, a melting pot of influences where Africa, India and Arabia meet. A complete change of pace from the mainland, a place where life’s rhythms are set by the monsoon winds and the cycles of the moon.

While Zanzibar Island is most visited, the archipelago is also made up of Pemba to the north, plus numerous smaller islands and islets. Each of the islands has its own distinct character. Zanzibar’s major attraction is Stone Town, with its whitewashed, coral-rag houses, quaint shops, bazaars, mosques, courtyards and squares. Its other draw card is of course its coast line, edged by fine, white-sand beaches and spectacular diving and snorkelling.

Victoria Falls – One of the seven NATURAL Wonders of the World.

Boasting the largest single curtain of falling water on earth, aptly named the “smoke that thunders”, Victoria Falls has always been one of the most powerful adventure destinations on the planet!

We pioneered international incentive travel to this region way back in 1992. Now that Zimbabwe is starting to find its feet again, we are at the forefront of the travel revival to this African wonderland.

Victoria Falls is a world heritage site and a premier incentive destination in Africa. It boasts several stunning lodges and hotels to suit all budgets, a wide choice of meeting and function facilities as well as countless ways to really go wild!

The Falls area has always been a safe and popular tourist destination, unaffected by the turmoil witnessed in other parts of the country in past years. The people are friendly and welcoming and the product offerings are exceptional. Tucked into the north-west corner of Zimbabwe, this beautiful region also borders Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. It is possible to incorporate many safari-style forays into any of these countries as part of a larger program. Let the astounding natural beauty, friendly hospitality and world class adventure opportunities of Victoria Falls entice and astound you!

Kenya offers abundant travel options from mountains and deserts, colourful tribal culture, beaches and coral reefs, and some of Africa’s best wildlife attractions. Kenya is often referred to as Africa in microcosm. Stunning landscapes set the scene, from Kakamega’s rainforests to Indian Ocean beaches by way of Mt Kenya National Park; the rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara to searing deserts on the shores of the Jade Sea; with The Rift Valley, home to Hell’s Gate National Park, cleaving a massive gash through it all.

Wildlife safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism for decades, and several Kenyan parks, like the Masai Mara, are among the best places in Africa to see lions, elephants, leopards and the famous wildebeest migration. Kenya rates as one of the top five bird-watching destinations in the world; other activities for outdoor enthusiasts include trekking the glacial ridges of Mt Kenya, ballooning over the Masai Mara, snorkelling at the Marine National Park in Malindi on the Indian Ocean coast, and much more besides. Kenya’s biggest city, Nairobi, has an interesting urban appeal with its crazy traffic, cafes, museums and nightlife.

Offering an unique historical and cultural heritage, tropical beaches, coral reefs, spectacular landscapes, intriguingly rich architecture and small desolated islands close to the coast, Mozambique is one of the most enticing tourist destinations in Southern African.

The 2500km Mozambican coastline is scattered with endless coral reefs, tropical beaches and is a mecca for scuba and snorkel divers, sun worshippers and adventure explorers alike. The pristine coast is one of the last few unexplored regions of the Indian Ocean and hosts a dazzling display of marine life, from Manta Rays to the rare Dugong.

Exotic destinations in the Northern region include the mysterious and majestic mountains of Namúli and Unango, historical settlements of Angoche, Ile de Mozambique, and Ibo and the magnificent harbour of Pemba.

Sail on a dhow through mangrove channels or laze under the palms in the Quirimbas Archipelago, take an off-beat safari in the wilds of Gorongosa National Park, wander along cobbled streets past stately colonial-era buildings on Ilha de Mocambique sip a café espresso at one of Maputo’s lively sidewalk cafés, watch the silversmiths at work on Ibo Island or dance to the country’s trademark marrabenta music.

Rwanda is a small country in East Africa. The Democratic Republic of Congo lies to its west, Uganda to its north and Burundi to the south. Rwanda also shares its eastern border with Tanzania.

Rwanda has three official languages: Kinyarwanda, French and English. The majority of the population speaks Kiswahili and Swahili is sometimes used in commercial centers. Rwanda’s currency is the Rwandan franc (RFr), which is sometimes also abbreviated to ‘Frw’. Rwanda is known as the land of the thousand hills and visitors will truly understand why when visiting this beautiful country.
Rwanda is blessed with a magnificent landscape and wildlife within its three national parks. The Volcanoes National Park is situated in the north of the country and is most famous for the gorilla trekking activity, Akagera National Park borders Tanzania and is therefore the best spot to view game. The Nyungwe National Park is situated in the south of Rwanda. Nyungwe National Park is home to a unique birdlife and the first Tree Canopy Walkway in Eastern Africa.

Uganda is known as the place where the lush West African jungle meets the wide-open plains of the East African savannah. In this uniquely diverse destination one can see lions prowling the bushland in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest by the afternoon. The very next day one can navigate tropical channels teeming with hippos and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to visit the majestic mountain gorillas.

Uganda boasts 60 protected areas, including nine national parks, such as:

  • Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
  • Rwenzori Mountains National Park – (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
  • Kibale National Park
  • Kidepo Valley National Park
  • Lake Mburo National Park
  • Mgahinga Gorilla National Park
  • Mount Elgon National Park
  • Murchison Falls National Park
  • Queen Elizabeth National Park

The pride of Uganda, however, remains Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world and also the source of the river Nile, the longest and the second largest river in the world.
Uganda is a friendly place and is most famous for its gorilla trekking expeditions. Home to several classic game reserves, the country is rapidly gaining recognition as as an excellent chimpanzee tracking and bird watching destination.

Zambia – a country with vast lakes, rich wetlands and breathtaking African sunsets.

If you are out to experience the ‘real’ Africa, Zambia is that diamond in the rough. The country boasts some of the continent’s best wildlife parks, and offers some of the region’s major highlights such as Victoria Falls in the south west and the Lower Zambezi National Park. It’s an angler’s dream, as fishermen travel from all over the world to try their luck on the mighty Zambezi River, with the hopes of landing a toothy Tigerfish or the rare, giant Vundu. Avid birders also flock to Zambia to glimpse its fabulous diversity of birds, most notably Chaplin’s Barbets.

The wild Zambezi River is perfect for adrenaline rush activities such as river rafting, canoeing safaris and river surfing.

Big game safaris, abundant birdlife and raw, pulsating wilderness are what visitors can expect to find. The Zambian government has long recognised the economic importance of its wildernesses and is acutely aware of environmental concerns: almost one-third of the country is given over to national parks and game reserves.

Highlights

Livingstone, named after the Scottish missionary and explorer David Livingstone, is the tourism capital of Zambia. It is located just 10km from the world-famous, spectacular Victoria Falls and is the starting point for a number of adrenalin-inducing adventures and sightseeing activities.

Between 1911 and 1935, Livingstone was the capital of Northern Rhodesia, as Zambia was previously known. The town is quaint with a understated colonial feel. The main street is lined with classic Victorian buildings – the wooden verandas and tin roofed houses serving as classic examples of early English settler architecture. Livingstone is relatively compact, so easy to navigate on foot.

Livingstone has earned its title as the Adventure Capital of Africa – the one-day low water river rafting is considered to be the best one-day white water experience available in the world. Apart from the multitude of adrenalin-inducing sports available there are many other activities in and around the town which will make a trip to this destination more than memorable. When David Livingstone first glimpsed the majestic Victoria Falls in 1855, he claimed “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” and named them after Queen Victoria. The force of the falling water produces high clouds of spray, which gave the falls their African name: Mosi-oa-Tunya – “the Smoke that Thunders”.

Botswana is one of the world’s most exciting travel destinations for exploring African wildlife in its natural state. The beauty of Botswana is found in its land formations, its wilderness and its cultural diversity.

Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a safari. From the ancient baobabs of the Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pans, the vast open land of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the sand dunes of the Kgalagadi, to the savannah grasslands of Chobe National Park and the waterways of the Okavango Delta, the diversity is staggering.

Chobe National Park

Spanning some 11700 square kilometers, the Chobe National Park boasts one of the richest concentrations of game in Africa. Comprising four distinct eco-systems, Chobe plays host to a timeless story of African wildlife wonder, where visitors can encounter everything from the Big Five to a spectacular range of antelope, birdlife, reptiles and even rare and endangered species such as wild dog and Roan and Sable antelope.

From the mighty meandering of the Chobe River in the north to the savannah grasslands in the south, interspersed with woodland and lagoons, the Chobe National Park is Botswana’s largest and most visited authentic African safari destination.

The Okavango Delta

Emerging from a unique set of geological conditions, the Okavango is truly one of the world’s most fascinating natural phenomena.

This inland delta drains some 11 cubic kilometers of water across and area of some 15000 square kilometers into the Kalahari Basin each year, forming a labyrinth of wetland islands and game rich habitat that plays host to some of Africa’s most enthralling wildlife encounters. Everything from viewing the Big Five by makoro (dugout canoe) to huge herds of antelope and rare species on foot, a safari experience in the Okavango Delta will surpass all expectations.

Savute

One of Africa’s rare and iconic destinations, Savute is a relic of an ancient inland lake which is fed by the Savute Channel and due to intermittent tectonic movement, dries up and flows seemingly without warning.

This curious movement in water levels has resulted in a landscape littered with interesting finds. Savannahs and grasslands, scrub and majestic thorn trees play host to a wide variety of antelope and Big Five, as well as birdlife and even an annual migration of zebra and predators.

Mauritius is a fascinating Indian Ocean island paradise. Its very name conjures up images of tropical extravagance. In many destinations, famed for cobalt-blue seas, white sandy beaches and luxury hotels, you may eventually find yourself wishing for something other to do than sunbathing and swimming, in Mauritius you are spoilt for choice, with a wide variety of island activities.

The island is jam-packed with historic sights, cultural diversity, geographic variation and almost limitless activities to distract you from the ever-present beach and pool. But perhaps the country’s biggest asset is the relaxed charm of its warm and welcoming people.

The marketing team of our DMC Green Route Africa were invited to experience the Anantara Bazaruto Resort, Mozambique.

Access is via Vilankulos, a small seaside town north of the capital, Maputo. Airlink offers scheduled flights from Johannesburg (5 days a week) and 2 flights a week direct from Nelspruit Airport, allowing a great beach/safari combo. The regularity of these connections will increase towards the end of the year. Upon arrival you are transferred by minivan to the water’s edge, where you board a modern speedboat for the 1hr transfer to the island. Wifi is available and mineral water is served on board. The island also has an airstrip for charter arrivals (reducing the transfer time to 15 minutes).

The Anantara Bazaruto is the only resort on the island, so it really is a completely private getaway, suitable for FIT’s, leisure groups and incentive programs. There are two main room categories: The one-bedroom beach villas are perfectly located just a few steps away from the white sandy beach and come complete with sun beds and hammocks. The deluxe sea-view pool villas and suite villas are located on a hill, a short stroll from the beach. They are more exclusive, each with a private plunge pool, large entertainment deck and two bedrooms.

The theme here is fun-in-the-sun with a multitude of activities to keep everyone busy, from children to the most dedicated sports lover. The imposing sand dunes on the island are ideal for sand boarding and the warm tropical waters make for great snorkeling and diving (the resort has their own PADI centre). Other activities include sunset dhow cruises, horse riding, a tennis court, a fun putting golf course, cooking lessons and a basketball course. Guests can also opt to just relax and soak up the sun next to one of two pools or visit the spa with its magnificent ocean views.

New – Hike the Ngorongoro Crater Rim

gibbs_farm_-_forest_walk-jpg-1366x768_q75

Launching this year, the privately guided Ngorongoro Crater Rim hike is hosted by a Gibb’s Farm naturalist and rangers from the Ngorongoro Conservation area in Tanzania. On the six- to seven-hour wilderness walk in untouched forests, guests can see unique plant life, animals and rare birds. Starting at Gibb’s Farm, the hike leads into the lush Ngorongoro Forest and ascends to the crater rim with views of the crater floor below. Most walkers will encounter elephant, Cape buffalo, bush pig, and a number of other animals along the way. With over 200 species on the Gibb’s Farm bird list, you are sure to see an abundance of bird life. Please note that the altitude and du- ration of the trek requires you to be in good physical condition.

The luxury Lion Sands Ivory Lodge has reopened after a complete rebuild. It is located in the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand, adjacent to the Kruger National Park.

This superb villa includes butler service, its own private gym and spa, and 2 bedrooms, sleeping a maximum 4 adults and 2 children.

Bold furniture and edgy décor, ambient lighting, inferences of tribal design and highly textured finishes – all combine to make Lion Sands Ivory Lodge an utterly sensory experience.
