cape town tour

Snowed under with African travel ideas!

All this week we've been at the World Travel Market - Africa which is happening in Cape Town.  It's a trade only show and my word have we come across some amazing new things.  The best part is that much what we've found are new destinations and ideas being offered by people we've known personally for ages. 

It just feels like Southern Africa is on fire with ideas and positivity at the moment.  Here's a great example, a 4x4 route (self-drive) offered by TransFrontier Parks Destinations.  This is arguably the most successful public/private partnership that we've ever seen, where travel industry professionals take over failing government owned establishments and turn them around.

A particularly brilliant example of this is their 4x4 route which takes you through Limpopo province's beautiful mountains & bush covering areas of magnificent scenic beauty. With real bush camping in reserves filled with wildlife, this is a total retreat from urban life. We hire you a fully equipped 4x4 overlander with which you camp (in secure and well serviced campsites) on some nights and stay over in TFPD's lodges on others.

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
