Southern & Eastern Africa

The south of the African continent from Namibia to Zimbabwe, taking in South Africa, is a region rich in unusual landscapes and a privileged site to admire African flora and fauna.

While the five species of African "big game" (leopards, lions, elephants, rhinoceros and buffalo) are present everywhere, if you travel across the dozens of reserves and nature parks in this immense territory, you will see hundreds of other species, many of which have now but a few members still living on the surface of our planet.

The beauty of Africa is splendid but fragile: it is captivating by its mix of ethnic groups, diversity of landscapes, including deserts that are still reminiscent of distant explorations, the temptation of the infinite in the same time zone as countries in Europe.

To the far south of the continent, the Cape region is principally devoted to vineyards and gastronomy.
