Southern Africa: The Birthplace of Humankind

There is only one place in the world where you can spot rainbows made by waterfalls, explore cosmopolitan cities, search for big game on safari, and relax within a tropical resort all in the same day: in southern Africa, the birthplace of humankind. Home to an abundance of epic natural sights, deeply historical experiences, and unique cultural activities, Africa’s tip stands as one of the most alluring destinations on earth.

On our Africa’s Wildlife and Southern Africa Odyssey small group tours, we journey through the countries of southern Africa, including South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Namibia. Called “the world in one country,” South Africa combines many of the best parts of Africa in its landscapes, people, history, and culture. Zimbabwe, just north of South Africa, shares a border with Zambia, where Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall on earth and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is tucked away. Finally, Botswana and Namibia boast lush animal habitats, ancient river valleys, sweeping grasslands, and arid deserts iconic to Africa’s landscape.
