Looking to take the family to southern Africa for a couple of weeks next year. What are the highlights and where should we go?
Mozambique is a must if you are into diving, I would recommend going to the tofu, near Inhambane. Whale Shark diving is very popular in the area, and is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The whale shark season is from November to April. The Victoria falls is an excellent place to go for a visit, however I would recommend staying on the Zambia side instead of the Zimbabwe side. You can go to the falls any time of year, however if you go in the rainy season, the river is spectacular, but it can be quite difficult to see the falls because of the volume of water that generates the mist. over 8 years ago
