Kruger National Park in SOUTH AFRICA Tips
Both South Africa and Botswana are two countries that allow a multitude of variants of tailor-made trips and luxury travel combined with each other or separately. Would you like to know which were the places I visited and the best places to travel?
My free time in this multicultural city, considered one of the most beautiful in the whole continent, was brief but intense. As soon as I landed, my Spanish-speaking guide picked me up at the airport and took me directly to the cable car to go up Table Mountain. I’ll let you in on a secret: the best times to go up and avoid queues are early in the morning, from 8 am to 9 am, or at lunchtime from 1 pm to 3 pm. Watching the sunset from there is very special but you have to be prepared to endure queues of up to 2 hours!
After enjoying the breathtaking panoramic views and taking the usual photos with the beautiful bay of the city at my feet, we headed towards the historic center for a tour of its most emblematic places: Strolling through the picturesque Bokaap Malay Quarter with its colorful houses, photographing the City Hall where Nelson Mandela gave his first speech after regaining his freedom, and, of course, to make a stop at the unmissable Truth Coffee Roasting, an old warehouse that grinds its own coffee and has become a must of the city. Take note that another must stop for a drink, if before 18h because at that time the center is deserted, is Long Street with its beautiful buildings with Victorian terraces as well as the trendy and nearby fashionable areas Bree and Kloof.

CROSSING AFRICA BY BICYCLE | LIVING ON THE ROAD
Trips to Botswana allow you to get to know one of the most unknown and surprising countries in Southern Africa. Combined with the Victoria Falls, located a few kilometers from Chobe National Park, and with a good arrival airport with many connections, it can be a completely unforgettable experience.
Among all the 15-day safaris in Africa, doing a safari in Botswana is probably the most different option along with Namibia. The country itself has wanted to differentiate itself from the offer of other places such as Kenya, Tanzania or South Africa, becoming a more exclusive and also more adventurous destination.
Compared to the relative comfort found in other places, immersing yourself in a safari in your travels to Botswana is to experience the vastness of Africa in first person. I like to emphasize that it is a tough trip, with comforts in their fantastic lodges, but also require physical effort and long journeys.
The idea has worked out well. Today, travel in Botswana is synonymous with luxury in completely paradisiacal natural environments and the animals live freely and in harmony. For example, Botswana is the country with the most elephants in Africa.
