Dominated by spectacular Table Mountain, Cape Town is a city that keeps on giving with its beautiful coastlines, world-class cuisine, excellent wineries and beautiful architecture.
Teeming with hot springs and a great place to camp and hike, Citrusdal is a sweet town set amongst the beautiful scenery of South Africa's Western Cape.
Located on the north bank of the Orange River near the South African border, Noordoewer is a great place to see by canoe.
A truly spectacular sight to behold, especially at sunset, Fish River Canyon's orange-pink hues and momentous size are awe-inspiring.
With the Sesriem Canyon close by and the incredible Sossusvlei sand dunes at its doorstep, tiny Sesriem serves as a gateway to these Namibian wonders.
Swakopmund sits on Namibia's Atlantic Coast, virtually surrounded by the Namib Desert, and has beautiful colonial architecture and a large array of adventure sports on offer.
With its 700 million-year-old granite peaks, prehistoric rock art and dramatic vistas, Spitzkoppe is another of Namibia's wondrous landscapes.
With excellent game viewing and stunning landscapes, Etosha National Park was established in 1907 and is home to hundreds of animal, reptile and bird species.
In Windhoek, it almost feels as if you've stepped out of Africa and into Europe with its Germanic architecture, cosy street cafes and modern malls.
Once someone's farm, D'Kar is now a very small rural village that has a handicraft initiative called Kuru, which supports the San Bushmen.
Maun is a small town in Botswana that's the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Despite its touristy veneer, it still retains its rural feel.
Full of animals, islands and unforgettable scenery, the Okavango Delta is the world's largest inland delta and is best explored by mokoro (dugout canoe).
With donkeys competing with cars on the streets and cattle sellers operating alongside Delta tour operators, Maun has more on offer than the spectacular Okavango Delta.
The spectacular Makgadikgadi Pans are massive salt pans that are desolate (yet arresting) in the dry season and abundant in animals and birdlife during the wet.
Also known as the 'City of Kings', Bulawayo is Zimbabwe's second-largest city and still retains the parks, tree-lined streets and buildings of its colonial past. Matobo National Park has remarkable granite hills and valleys, over 3,000 rock art sites and is the resting place of Cecil Rhodes, the founder of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
Founded in 1928 and the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe, Hwange National Park has a wealth of beautiful landscapes and a tremendous selection of wildlife.

Choma is a small, friendly Zambian town halfway between Lusaka and Livingstone with a small market and smattering of shops.
With big populations of hippos and crocodiles - among the usual suspects - the Lower Zambezi is a fabulous spot to take to the river and see Africa from the water.
See amazing sunsets and hear a symphony of animal calls while camping on the banks of the winding Luangwa River.

As the cosmopolitan capital of Malawi, Lilongwe has a number of great restaurants, cafes and markets, which are often interspersed with areas of greenery.

Overlooking the Ruaha River, Iringa is a picturesque town with a relaxed vibe, some good places to eat and a wonderful crafts centre.
Dar es Salaam lies by the Indian Ocean and is abuzz with busy streets, laidback restaurants, colourful markets, interesting architecture and lots of water-based activities.
Famed for its fragrant spices and infamous for its slave-trading history, Zanzibar mixes divine beaches, an atmospheric main town and Middle Eastern flair with an African beat.
Dar es Salaam roughly means 'haven of peace' and has a long history of trade with India, the Middle East and Germany, making it a fascinating blend of cultures.
Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.
Situated close to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is a relaxed, friendly city with a wealth of famous sites on its doorstep.
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies. Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.
