Silverback Mountain Gorillas are the largest primates. They are ground-dwelling and predominantly herbivorous. They are social animals and live in individual Mountain Gorilla families. They inhabit the forests of Central Africa, where the countries of Rwanda, Uganda, and Congo meet.

Mountain Gorilla Trekking, as it is commonly known, draws many hundreds of people from all over the world to view these majestic animals in their natural habitat.   Mountain Gorillas are on the primate endangered species list with less than 800 Gorillas left in the world, they will not breed in captivity.  Not to be confused with other species of Gorillas.

The late Dian Fossey devoted 18 years of her life to both studying and protecting the Gorillas from poachers, before she was eventually murdered.



Victoria Falls - one of the three greatest waterfalls in the world

The Wonders of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.  David Livingstone was the first European to view this wonder of the world and described them as, Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight. 

Victoria Falls is one of the worlds 3 greatest waterfalls, along with Iguasu Falls in South America, and Niagara Falls in North America.

Victoria falls is 100m high
The size of Victoria Falls is a spectacular 1.6 km wide (1 mile) and 108 meters deep (350 foot)  With all the other surrounding attractions and activities Victoria Falls has become to be known as "A fantastic little play ground in the middle of Africa".  Perfect weekend get away or short holiday break away, even Honeymoon ideas are accommodated.   If you have not been to Victoria Falls you have not seen all of African majestic beauty.  We offer direct flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Zanzibar Island holidays
