The Great Okavango Trail
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.

After several long and pleasant conversations, we agreed on a travel program that met our requests and Dirk’s expert advice. The result, a wonderful trip and also one of the best experiences ever: the balloon flight at sunrise over the Namib. We will never forget it! Carolina and CarlosNamibia 2017
Africa has something that bewitches you, bewitches you. And what better than to know them from the hand of Africa Travel. In April 2016, Dirk prepared us a beautiful trip. 4 friends in 4×4 in Namibia. The best thing is that everything was controlled, but as we were going alone, we had the feeling of an adventure. We could not ask for more. The attention on arrival, the detail they had with us, they explained everything perfectly. I will be back soon.

My generation grew up associating those landscapes with adventure and exoticism. Seeing it all at your fingertips so to speak has been a dazzling and exciting experience. AngelSouth Africa, October 2018
