Southern Africa is an extremely large and diverse region of the world. It is composed of five countries (according to the UN scheme of scheme of geographic regions) and imprisoned between the cold Atlantic Ocean on its western shore and the warm Indian Ocean to the East and South.

The presence of these differing oceans plays a major role in the ecology of this region and is what gives way to the astonishing diversity of biomes that can be found.

From hiking in the oldest desert in the world to scuba diving in one of the best spots in the Indian Ocean – there is a plethora of ecosystems to visit and activities to enjoy.

There are 24000 species of plants in Southern Africa* - many are endemic like this Aloe Dichotoma in Namibia
White sand beaches and penguins anyone?

We have decided to make Southern Africa our home. We lived in South Africa for three years and it was wonderful. Then Namvic Tours & Safaris invited us to come and work in Namibia and we jumped at the chance for a new adventure. And it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Luckily, thanks to our jobs as tour and safari guides we also regularly go to Botswana and we even go whenever we have some spare time. We have seen so much, and yet there is still so much more to discover.
