Travel to South Africa and visit Cape Town, where the imposing plateau of Table Mountain is the crowning glory. Use free time to explore the vibrant atmosphere of this beautiful city by visiting cafes, galleries, restaurants, shops and beaches.

Travel to Namibia and journey to the serenity of the Orange River.
Glide across the waters in a canoe, under the shadow of the ancient Richtersveld Mountains. Drive to Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world. A beautiful area teeming with birdlife and small mammals, this landscape is seriously photogenic.
