Africa - the cradle of mankind . Diverse landscapes so so breathtaking that you can barely see enough. Wild animal worlds - close enough to touch. In two weeks we will show you the different faces of this fascinating continent. From the deserts of Namibia, past the ghost towns of our ancestors, to Botswana on the rivers of the Okavango Delta and finally into the realm of the 'Big Five'. We combine again the contrast of luxury and original, unadulterated experience of the wilderness . These tours are accompanied by world-class photographers that will help to improve your photographic skills . Please note that we amend the tour slightly depending on the season , because we have to consider the vegetation , the water level and migration of animals .
