African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!

    Each year this nine-day 3 400-kilometre journey takes the train from the savannahs of the Highveld to the Atlantic Ocean in the west. The Pride of Africa departs from Pretoria for Kimberley, centre of one of the world’s most famous diamond rushes where there is an opportunity to visit the Big Hole and savor the 1870s atmosphere of the mine museum and village. The railway line then traverses the stark vistas of the arid Northern Cape into Namibia at Ariamsvlei. There is an excursion to the Fish River Canyon – second in size to the Grand Canyon and truly a spectacular sight. The train continues across the Kalahari Desert to Namibia’s capital, Windhoek – a lively, cosmopolitan city with a strong German flavour – for a short city tour. Guests then fly to the world-famous Sossusvlei, a stunning pan in the Namib Desert surrounded by enormous red sand dunes. After a night’s stay with desert drives and a bush dinner, guests rejoin the train in Windhoek and continue overnight to Tsumeb. A night is spent at the Mokuti Game Lodge on the eastern edge of the game-rich Etosha National Park. The journey then continues on to Swakopmund, a perfectly preserved 19th-century German Hansa town set between the dunes of the Namib desert and the roaring Atlantic Ocean – an unforgettable end to a remarkable journey.
