It’s almost impossible to imagine how early travellers through Africa coped without roads, motorised transport, or any of the other comforts we take for granted.
The wonder with which they experienced the African bush, on the other hand, is easy for us to replicate. We can even do it all while sleeping in tents (although with substantially more luxury!).
At Southern Africa Travel, we have been booking tailor-made African itineraries for 36 years, not long enough for us to have been around when David Livingstone was planning his epic trips, but we’re certain he’d be calling us if he wanted to do it all over again.
When Stanley was sent in search of Livingstone in 1869, the famous explorer had not been heard from for over six years. In the last years of his life, just one letter out of 44 reached its addressee.
All of this is really just a long way of making the point that communication is another feature of modern life that is easier. This month, you could win a 2 night stay at the luxurious Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town, by ‘liking’ our Facebook page, ‘following’ us on Twitter, or by ‘following’ our boards on Pinterest.
Our team, cumulatively, has 70 years’ experience in the African travel landscape. We use the abovementioned social media to share our picks of what is hip, hot and happening. Or those special images that brighten a long day at the office.
Facebook and Twitter is also where we share news of last minute deals or special offers. You may be experiencing sundowners at a waterhole before you know it…
