Southern African Colors

                           
South Africa not only draws our attention for its march towards freedom, but also for the exploration of its wildlife. Rich with intense colonial history, today it is a lively cultural, musical and even a culinary melting pot, where the expressions of colors and joy are above all, a way of life. Hospitality is generous and warm, and the landscapes are magnificent. It is certain you will return from this multi-faceted, halfway across the world trip, with a suit case full of emotions.
