southern africa travel guide - a brief look at southern africa

Southern Africa includes the countries of South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi. Madagascar and Mauritius also falls into this region. The region has two of Africa's power houses - South Africa and Botswana. Both these countries have strong economies and democratic governments. Their success is built on minerals (gold in South Africa and diamonds in Botswana). Southern Africa boasts the highest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert in Namibia. It offers exceptional attractions like Table Mountain in Cape Town and the annual Namaqualand flower spectacle. For those in search of more remote areas the Lower Zambezi and Mana Pools in the Zambezi Valley will take you back to a bygone era of African safaris and explorations.

The Southern African is sub-continent offers spectacular destinations ready to be explored. With a comprehensive network of flights connecting the various destinations, it allows the traveler to explore the region by easily combining two or more of the countries during a visit. The customs formalities at the airports are straight forward and generally takes just a few minutes.

Some of the destinations to consider when visiting Southern Africa is Cape Town, Kruger, the Okavango Delta, Chobe, Victoria Falls, Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos, Etosha, the Namib Desert, the Kalahari, the Drakensberg and the beautiful Garden Route to name but a few. One of the unique aspects in Southern Africa is the malaria free safari areas of the Northwest province and the Eastern Cape in South Africa. This makes it the perfect place for a family holiday, especially when combined with a beach destination.
