I’m lucky enough to have been to South Africa around thirty times, so The Times recently picked my brains on what I thought would make a great two week introductory itinerary down there.

There are three pages to this but because of copy-write issues I can’t publish it all here – if you want to see the whole thing you need to be an online subscriber to the Times. Sorry!

In January we slipped away from London’s winter and headed to Dar es Salaam and the Selous game reserve in Tanzania for a safari, followed by a week further south to Cape Town, South Africa. Here’s a short video shot by our friends Erika and Henry who came with us.
