Where to go on Safari in Africa Part 2: Southern Africa: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Where to go on Safari in Africa Part 2: Southern Africa:
South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe
Southern Africa spans a diverse range of topography with a wide variety of habitats, from grassy savannahs and bushy woodlands, to the thundering waters of the Zambezi River at Victoria Falls, the sweeping dunes and clear night skies of the Namib desert, and the idyllic beaches of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Domestic prices in South Africa and Namibia have not yet had time to adjust to the economic situation meaning that inflation has been kept in check (meaning cheap prices on safaris). “South A frica's depreciating currency has so far had little impact on inflation”  [Reuters, Dec 14, 2015]                          ...
