INSPIRED DESTINATIONS

Africa has been a sought after continent by so many, from the pioneers who have gone before us to the modern explorers of today. Whether you are traveling romantics, a multi-generational family, or an adventure seeker wanting to experience the beauty and facets of ever changing landscapes, and to enjoy the many cultures and wildlife Africa has to offer along the way, Africa has something for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are few experiences that conjure up images of romance, unparalleled beauty and a vast sense of thrilling adventure as a safari to Africa. 

 

You might find yourself sipping on the flagship wines of the vineyards of the Cape to hiking up the majesty of Table Mountain. You could travel to Kruger to experience the magnificent African sunset and enjoy the freedom of wildlife whilst relaxing in luxury accommodation or roughing it in a tree house. This is a continent of savannas with widely scattered trees and shrubs that pave the way to spectacular landscapes of dessert, jungles and pristine coastlines.

At our deepest roots, the African continent communicates with our souls. Travellers return home, not only with exciting stories and adventures to share with friends and family, but with a better understanding of our inherent connection with nature; a feeling of having belonged, a sense of awe and a broader world view from having experienced nature in the raw. 

TCD Destination Management Company (Pty) Ltd t/a The Cape Discovered design custom itineraries for bespoke travel only in Africa and the Indian Ocean, and our ‘little black book’ of contacts is testament to our personalised approach and dedication to details. 

 

Whatever you would like to do and see, be it following the wildebeest migration in Tanzania, gliding on a mokoro through Botswana’s Okavango Delta, canoeing down the Zambezi, walking in remote Zambian parks,  adventure sports like bungy at the Bloukrans Bridge or simply soaking up the sun on a beach, start your adventure by browsing the countries below. A lavish and indulgent getaway at one of the Kruger National Park lodges or a once-in-a-lifetime fully guided safari in East Africa with an Indian Ocean Island ending, we are dedicated in our pursuit of ensuring that your experience is unforgettable.

"Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same.

 

But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it?

 

How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?

 

Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?"

     – Brian Jackman -

Africa is the world's second largest and second most-populous continent. At about 30.3 million km² including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of Earth's total surface area and 20.4% of its total land area. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With classic sightings of spectacular wildlife on open savannah plains and in deep green forests, the continent also boasts tropical islands, genuine traditional cultures and no less than 129 World Heritage Sites, each and every one representing Africa's unique natural and cultural heritage.  

 

Some of the planet's most iconic and inspiring sites are found in Africa, from snowcapped Mt. Kilimanjaro and Cape Town's Robben Island, to the cascade of thunderous water surging over the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

 

Many of these break records: the Okavango is the world's largest inland delta, the Namib is the world's oldest desert and the Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact volcanic caldera.  Africa also hosts one of the Earth's last and largest, massive animal migrations.
