Flora & Fauna Holidays

Africa’s fauna and flora is as diverse as the continent’s many cultures and offers visitors a wide variety of different habitats, biomes and species to explore. Botswana’s Okavango Delta offers the largest inland delta in the world bringing a watery wilderness to an otherwise dry desert region, while Southern Africa is listed in the top ten of the world's mega diverse countries owing to the many species that are found only here and remain endemic to the region.

With vast deserts to the north and south-west, massive tropical belts along the equator, both warm and cold ocean current influences and a range of altitudes – there really is a wealth of wildlife and natural surroundings to see! Experience some of the world's finest wildflower displays at West Coast National Park and Ramskop Wildflower Nature Reserve. Explore the over 400 species of birds in the Okavango Delta, and the Chobe National Park.

Discover the world's smallest but richest plant kingdom in the Cape’s fynbos region or the rolling savannahs of East Africa’s great plains. There truly is something for every nature lover. With our experts planning your itinerary you can ramble through the exotic landscape, while relaxing in the comfort of some breathtaking properties. You can stop to take in a few African experiences as well, like a Safari or whale watching while enjoying the blooms in their natural environment.
