Durban

4/21/2021

South Africa's third-largest city, thriving industrial center, and largest port in Africa creates a photogenic place for meandering or eating and drinking dockside. Durban's second-largest population group, Indians, have mosques, bazaars and temples festooned with wildly coloured deities standing juxtaposed to Victorian buildings that mark out the colonial center. The city's main interest lies in reconciling competing Indian, African and English cultures and in keeping rampant vegetation at bay. Admire mosques, explore the Indian area around Grey Street, or pass by Dalton Road Zulu Market. Enjoy the KwaZulu-Natal game parks, the Drakensberg, and the Battlefields.

Cape Town
Suggested Private Excursion
4/25/2021
4/25/2021

Cape Town is southern Africa's most beautiful, most romantic and most-visited city. Few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the Cape Peninsula spine, which slides like the mighty tail of the continent into the Atlantic Ocean. By far the most striking - and famous - of its sights is Table Mountain, frequently mantled by clouds, and rearing up from the middle of the city to provide a constantly changing vista to the suburbs below. Table Mountain is the city's solid core which divides the city into distinct zones with public gardens, wilderness, forests, hiking routes, vineyards and desirable residential areas trailing down it's lower slopes.

Walvis Bay

4/29/2021

Walvis Bay is the principal port for Namibia. Its harbor, protected by Pelican Point peninsula, provides one of the few safe deep-water anchorages on the Atlantic coast of south-western Africa. It is also a magical spot for birdlovers and a gateway to Namibia's hauntingly beautiful lunar-like desert landscapes. Visit Namibia's pretty seaside resort of Swakopmund, whose elegant turn-of-the-century German buildings belong more to Bavaria than Africa! Easily reached is famous Cape Cross Seal Reserve, home of up to 100,000 Cape fur seals - and the grandeur of the Namib-Naukluft Park, whose sand dunes rising to over 1,000 ft are the world's highest.
