Tours and Travel

The FSM5 and AfricaSan5 conference will be located in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. In addition to offering a variety of activities in and around the city, Cape Town is a great jumping-off point for those who may be looking to travel further afield. Safaris in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Kruger National Park, and the Timbavati Game Reserve are just a short flight from Cape Town. If you have a little more time, you might consider traveling to the desert dunes of Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, or Victoria Falls. Please contact us for availability and pricing.

South Africa

The Sabi Sands Game Reserve offers what some would say is the best game viewing experience in South Africa. It is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, an enormous area without any fences, allowing wildlife to move freely. Unlike Kruger, the Sabi Sands does not allow self-drives, and therefore limits the amount of vehicle traffic to provide a more intimate wildlife experience. Safaris are led by highly trained guides, and may include day and night drives, walking safaris, and off-road driving. The Sabi Sands is known for its high concentration of leopards, and is a Big 5 destination.


Exceptional wildlife, small camps in exclusive wilderness areas, unique activities, and low human footprint combine to make Botswana one of the most memorable safari destinations in Africa. The Okavango Delta is a wondrous wetland within a desert, receiving its seasonal floodwaters from the Angola highlands, which allows it to support a huge diversity of fauna and flora. In the northeast, the Chobe and Linyanti reserves are renowned for their large concentrations of elephants, in addition to other wildlife and exceptional birding. Botswana is also home to the Central Kalahari and the Makgadikgadi Pans – two unique locations that offer adventurous travelers the opportunity to interact with the ancient San people, and also the chance to view desert adapted wildlife not found in other parts of the country. Many camps in Botswana offer day and night game drives, walking safaris, boating and mokoro (water level dependent).

Victoria Falls

Known to the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya or “The smoke that thunders”, The Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Falls are located on the Zambezi River, the fourth largest river in Africa and also the defining border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Zambezi region is a playground for those who are adventurous at heart, with a wide selection of exciting activities ranging from mild to adrenalin-inducing. Some popular excursions include zip-lining across the gorge, bungee jumping off the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, sunset river cruises, a guided tours of the Falls, and a day trip into Chobe National Park. The Victoria Falls can be easily combined with safaris in South Africa or Botswana, and will make a lovely ending to your time in southern Africa. With a range of accommodation on the Zimbabwe side, as well as tranquil lodges nestled along the river on the Zambia side, there are options for everyone.

Any or all of these locations will combine together very well, or may also be experienced as stand-alone destinations. Please complete the form below and we’ll be happy to design a custom itinerary for you!
