The opportunities in Southern Africa are endlessWhile wildlife is important, there is much more to discover in this incredible region
If you’re passionate about wildlife and nature, Botswana is the place to go. Offering some of Africa’s best safaris, this beautiful country is home to a plethora of wild animals.
Home to the ‘Big Five’ - buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros – safaris in South Africa are world famous, making this an astonishing setting for your next getaway.
If you’re looking for an authentic African experience, Mozambique is one of continent’s lesser-known holiday destinations and has an off-the-beaten-track feel.
Namibia is named after the world’s oldest desert, the Namib. Although there are large expanses of desert and dunes, the Southern African country offers much more than just stretches of sand. You’ll find miles of coast, rivers, wetlands and grass plains to explore too.
South Africa is the place to go on a wildlife safari, with lions, buffalos, elephants, rhinos and other exotic animals roaming the picturesque landscapes. Luxury South African holidays can also take you to the bustling cities of Cape Town or Johannesburg, offering an experience like no other.
A visit to Zambia and Zimbabwe is an opportunity to experience truly wild landscapes, as well as the incredible animals that inhabit these magnificent countries.
A diverse and vibrant region, Southern Africa is home to a range of incredible landscapes, from deserts and mountains, to wildlife parks and swamps.
Azure’s collection of Southern Africa destinations include Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed adventure, the chance to learn more about African history and culture, or you simply want to unwind and relax, you’re bound to find the perfect holiday with us.
With world-class dining, a rich culture, spellbinding scenery and abundant wildlife, it’s easy to understand why South Africa is one of the region’s most popular holiday spots.
There’s plenty of activities and sightseeing opportunities in this extraordinary country. Inland, there’s trekking, rock climbing and abseiling from Table Mountain, while the coast offers deep sea voyages and the chance to spot seals, whales and sharks. For a more relaxing experience, spend a day wandering the famous South African vineyards and dining in stunning natural locations.
Azure offer a range of high quality accommodation in South Africa, from luxury lodges in animal parks to sleek, five-star hotels in Cape Town.
Regarded by many as the top place in Africa to go on a safari, Botswana’s main appeal is its array of wildlife.
Animal-lovers can head to the Chobe National Park, which is home to over 60,000 elephants and big cats, including lions, cheetahs and leopards. Alternatively, Okavango Delta is a wetland paradise filled with swamps, islands and reed beds, where you can take a relaxing ride in a traditional mokoro canoe and marvel at the passing scenery and water-dwelling creatures.
Azure holidays in Botswana take you to unique accommodation in camps from which you can explore the magnificent landscapes and wildlife right on your doorstep.
Mozambique boasts some of Africa’s most beautiful beach resorts, where holidays can be spent reclining on palm-fringed sands, soaking up the views of the Indian Ocean, and swimming among colourful reef life.
Once a Portuguese settlement, the country’s colonial past is reflected in its many historic buildings. To help preserve the culture and natural landscapes, Azure travel experts work closely with the local people and tour operators to keep the impact of tourism to a minimum.
Something altogether different, Namibia is largely a desert country - even though it has nearly one thousand kilometres of coastline. Here, you can roam across the beautiful shifting sand dunes and visit the stark salt pans in the Etosha National Park.
The North of Namibia is thought to be among the best places in Southern Africa to see wildlife, with a host of national parks and reserves containing endangered species such as the puku antelope and the black rhino.
Zambia is home to the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls - one of the world’s seven natural wonders. There are several wonderful rivers to see here too, including the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi.
Zambia is a favourite destination for walking safaris, with opportunities to see the likes of elephants, buffaloes and crocodiles.
An Azure holiday in Zambia can take you to a hotel near Victoria Falls, or to a rural camp where experienced local guides can lead you on a walking tour of the wildlife park.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
