Regional Tourism Organization of Southern Africa (RETOSA)


Imagine falling asleep with the sounds of the bush, the roar of the hungry lion, the high-pitched giggle of a hyena, echoing in your ears. Lazing by the azure blue waters of a tropical island paradise. Even better, exploring the hustle and bustle of a traditional market, where cultures long gone live on in the customs of today. Experiencing some of the wonders of the world or visiting some world heritage sites.


Welcome to Southern Africa, one of the most beautiful, exotic and diverse destinations in the world, where you can do all this and more. Whether your interest lies in adventure, animals, culture or cuisine, the Southern African region, with its varied tapestry of landscapes, has something for every traveler. The Southern Africa region comprising of Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, offers unbeatable holiday experiences. From indulging in mountains of peri-peri prawns on a golden Mozambican beach to trailing gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo, from diving the depths of Lake Malawi to conquering Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, you can be sure that a holiday in Southern Africa is one you won’t forget.


Discover the secrets of ancient cultures in Lesotho and Swaziland, watch the sun set from an Angolan beach bar, or bathe in the romance of Mauritius and Madagascar palm-fringed beaches. If a safari is more your style, you will be spoilt for choice – why not track the Big Five on an elephant – back safari in Botswana, or safari in the sky with a hot air balloon in South Africa? Need more action? Namibia’s desert is a must for those keen to try to sand boarding or dune buggy boarding – or even for those who simply want to take in one of the world’s most starkly beautiful landscapes. Whether in Zambia or Zimbabwe, you will

be absorbed by one of the most spectacular wonders of the world – Victoria Falls. Wherever you decide to go, you will encounter the warmth and spirit of the African people.
