More African Destinations

South Africa

South Africa, as the international gateway into Botswana, provides many opportunities for a pre- or post- Botswana holiday. Many visitors travel to Botswana via Johannesburg. There are several flights between Johannesburg and Maun, Kasane, Gaborone and Francistown. Air Botswana now operates a flight between Cape Town and Maun and Cape Town and Gaborone twice a week.

We at Liquid Giraffe represent a good range of small ‘boutique’ hotels and accommodation establishments in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Through our ground handler in South Africa, we can arrange a stay of one night or more at any of the main centres in South Africa, book tours and excursions for you and even provide add on safaris to private game reserves and game reserves anywhere in South Africa.

Namibia

We can book customised itineraries for you through our Namibian groundhandlers. Access to Windhoek, the Namibian capital, is either direct from Europe or direct from Maun, Cape Town or Johannesburg.

Of special interest for visitors who wish to travel into Botswana through the north via Mohembo and into the Okavango Panhandle, is the area known as the Caprivi.

On the banks of the river which eventually flows into the Okavango Delta are several lodges – all offering reasonable stays and some with campsites. They are close to the Muhongo Game Park, which offers visitors pleasant drives and good game viewing (kudu and elephant being some). Wonderful bird viewing (such as Wattled and Long Toed Plovers and Giant Kingfishers) is also on offer.

Mozambique

Another combo we would like to suggest is the Botswana and Beach Combo. Combine your holiday in Botswana with a few days on the pure white sands and idyllic settings of the Mozambican coast. The Mozambican resort of Vilanculos, edged on the waters of the Bazaruto archipelago, offers medium priced accommodation and on the islands themselves, luxury all-inclusive accommodation - the perfect setting to unwind and relax after your hectic game viewing holiday in Botswana. They are regular air connections from Vilanculos to Johannesburg.

Zambia and Zimbabwe

For visitors with time to spare, we recommend ending your Botswana safari/holiday in the Chobe area and spending a day or two in Livingstone, Zambia or Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Transfers from Kasane to Livingstone or Victoria Falls take approximately 1.5 hours, depending on the traffic on the Kazangula ferry.

We can of course fly you direct from your lodge in Botswana to either destination (with a customs clearance stop in Kasane). Flights from Livingstone or Victoria Falls to Johannesburg are daily (British Airways and South African Airways).

There are several magnificent places to stay in Livingstone or Victoria Falls and the areas nearby. Livingstone also offers a spectacular view of the Eastern Cataract of the Victoria Falls and there are several exciting activities available in Livingstone or Victoria Falls - from elephant ride safaris, to hot air ballooning to river cruises on the mighty Zambezi River.

Should your interest stretch beyond the sights and sounds of the mighty Victoria Falls, we can also offer you a range of lodge stays in other areas of Zambia and Zimbabwe – from the lesser known Kafue National Park and the majestic Luangwa Parks in Zambia to the wildlife areas of Hwange in Zimbabwe.

Malawi

Malawi is an undiscovered gem in the heart of Africa and it deserves its name as 'the warm heart of Africa'. Aside from its animals, the country is remarkable in its diverse geography – from Africa’s third largest lake, Lake Malawi to the dramatic peaks of Mount Mulanje in the south and the beautiful highlands of the Nyika Plateau in the north. The country has something for everyone: snorkeling and kayaking on Lake Malawi (and experience the thrill of staying on a small tented camp on a Robinson Crusoe-style island in the middle of the lake), game viewing in the Mulanje park concession area or walking on the protea covered slopes of the Nyika plateau, dotted with herds of eland.

Access is either into Blantyre (the capital) or Lilongwe and both cities have links to several major hubs such as Johannesburg and Nairobi. Getting from one location to the next can be done any light aircraft. Roads however are good and distances manageable. The scenic beauty encourages a visitor to travel between destinations by road. 10 days in Malawi would be ideal to see the highlights. The proximity of the South Luangwa in Zambia from Lilongwe and the easy transport connections makes Malawi and the game rich Luangwa a perfect combo!

Uganda

Our newest destination is the pearl of Africa, Uganda. So far discovered by few tourists, Uganda is still virtually untouched and pure.

Uganda is a country of many surprises with rolling hills, sparkling crater lakes, abundant wildlife, adrenaline activities and, of course, the endangered Mountain Gorillas. Uganda is still authentically African, lush green and home to the friendliest people on the continent. This is a country where you can track mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Forest, see tree climbing lions in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and go chimpanzee tracking in the Kibale Forest.
