Josh guided two Southern Africa trips in their dry winter season. One was to the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, with its incredible mix of humid forest, grassland, mountains, coast, wetlands, and savannah. It has loads of special birds—and we saw most of them—along with incredible safari opportunities which we made the most of. Our next South Africa trip—a classic trip than includes the Cape Town area and a Kruger National Park safari—still has a few spots available.
The other was to Namibia & Botswana, where wintertime brings dry air, cool weather, and all the animals to the waterholes. It’s another region with loads of specialty birds, wonderful and abundant wildlife, easy birding, stunning scenery, and fantastic hotels, food, and people.
