THE GREAT MIGRATION
Have you always wanted to see Africa’s Great Migration, one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world? The time to go is in December, January and February, but because so many people want to see this mass movement of over 2 million animals, lodges are beginning to fill up already.
From the vast Serengeti plains in Tanzania to the champagne-colored hills of Kenya’s Maasai Mara, over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain-ripened grass. It is truly a staggering experience! Encounter the vast herds of the wildebeest migration as they fan out in a seemingly un-endless blanket across the landscape.
The thundering hooves of the herds and the enormous clouds of fine red dust they leave in their wake have become an icon of East African safari. Filled with dramatic encounters, this incredible journey takes the herds across fast-flowing rivers inhabited by some of Africa’s largest crocodiles and plains filled with predators.
HOLIDAY TIME IN CAPE TOWN
Thinking of traveling to warmer climates around Christmas time? Cape Town is a great option, but unless you book early it is almost impossible to find a room.
Cape Town is a city where old and new harmoniously converge in history, architecture, cultural pursuits and the essence of its people. It is dominated by a towering, table-shaped mountain, set on a peninsula of soaring, rocky heights and lush valleys, where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
The fast pace and bright lights of the city meld effortlessly with a choice of white sandy beaches, magnificent green areas with rivers, vleis and dams and a floral kingdom that is wholly unique to the Cape. There are also plenty of must-sees to check off your list like Robben Island, Cape Point and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. All of this combined with the spectacular warm climate make Cape Town a fantastic destination.
