More about Namibia

Namibia has to be one of the most curious countries in southwest Africa, thanks to its cultural influences, amazingly varied landscapes and extraordinary dedication to protecting its wildlife and natural wonders. Its border to the west is the Atlantic Ocean and its land borders include Zambia, Angola, Botswana and South Africa. Early inhabitants of this sparsely populated land were the San, Damara and Nama people. Today the Ovambo is the largest ethnic group in the country. You'll see signs of the country's German heritage as well, in the capital of Windhoek and the colonial-era buildings in the coastal town of Swakopmund. Despite being the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, the wildlife is incredibly diverse and nearly half the country is protected by conservation management. 'Namib' means "vast place" and fun fact, the dramatic deserts and endless salt plains have made the perfect backdrops for numerous movies, like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Flight of the Phoenix (2006) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).

More about South Africa

South Africa is a fascinating country full of contrasts, rich cultural heritage, imposing natural wonders and of course many of the most remarkable animals on earth. Table Mountain is a stunning backdrop to the city of Cape Town. The Western Cape boasts beautiful beaches and is prime wine growing country. Inland you'll find many impressive wildlife reserves, including Kruger National Park, famous for its wildlife viewing opportunities and being home to the 'Big Five' (leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant).

More about Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe, or officially the Republic of Zimbabwe, is bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique. It's gone through a resurgence in recent years, with stability returning to the landlocked country and gradual economic growth. Despite its rocky political past, Zimbabwe has invested in its natural heritage, with around 11% of the country declared parks and wildlife estates. The most renowned and largest is Hwange National Park, where you could be fortunate to see the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion). Zimbabwe's biggest must-see attraction is thundering Victoria Falls on the Zambezi river, where the famous falls actually straddle the border with Zambia.

Safety measures and peace of mind.

The wellbeing and safety of our passengers and staff is always a priority. My Travel Experience is committed to ensuring your peace of mind with customer-friendly booking practices and enhanced health and safety standards on our trips.

Safe travel requirements:
Local authorities, airlines and cruise companies may have travel requirements in place, such as travellers being fully vaccinated, testing negative for Covid-19 prior to travel, the wearing of masks and social distancing requirements.

It's important that you familiarise yourself with any restrictions and requirements prior to travel, as it's your responsibility to comply with local requirements and guidelines.

We recommend you check these before arriving at the airport. If you're transiting through other destinations during your trip, check on any local requirements at each transit destination and confirm any specific requirements for onward travel with your airline.

Only get tested through verified official testing centres. Scammers are taking advantage of travellers by charging for fake tests. If you're unsure where to get tested, contact the local health authority for advice.

If you've had the COVID-19 vaccine, you should carry your vaccination certificate, along with any negative PCR test results, especially if you have one or more transit stops. Some destinations may ask for proof of testing and vaccination before allowing you to transit through or cross their border.

Guidelines are subject to change and the enforcement of certain measures (i.e. covid testing, social distancing, mask-wearing etc.) will vary in different regions. It's your responsibility to check with local health authorities for best practices in their region and ensure that you are eligible to travel.
