The National Party's opposition to socialism and democracy, and its introduction of the policy of apartheid, led to friction with neighbouring states that helped to spark the border wars in South West Africa, now Namibia, from 1966.The role of the Army was fundamentally changed by the upheavals of the early 1990s and after 1994 the Army became part of the new South African National Defence Force.It is now becoming increasingly involved in peacekeeping efforts in southern Africa, often as part of wider African Union operations.On the lookout for the 'Big Five' (rhino, lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo), we head for the place whose very name has become synonymous with 'safari'; the Serengeti Plains.A vast land of unimaginable biodiversity and unforgettable sceneries, the Serengeti certainly lives up to its well-earned reputation as the epitome of safari destinations and after extensive exploration, we make route for the wood-, grass- and swamplands near Lake Manyara, where we find exotic birds by the thousand, giraffes, impala and hippos.Touching down in Johannesburg in South Africa, we have the chance to learn about the region's colourful, and at times dubious, history, and find out for ourselves how the city came to be at the forefront of the gold-mining industry. I enjoy my time on their tours immensely Today we arrive in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.We cross into Zimbabwe to feast our eyes on one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the world at Victoria Falls, and into Botswana and Swaziland, where we take a boat ride to see a diverse array of water creatures (like hippos and large crocodiles) and spend time in traditional rural farming settlements respectively. Part of Maasai land when the British arrived, this modern capital grew with the development of the railway.Through this system, young healthy members are being inducted into the regular and reserve forces every year.After the Union of South Africa was formed in 1910, General Jan Smuts, the Union's first Minister of Defence, placed a high priority on creating a unified military out of the separate armies of the union's four provinces. 13) of 1912 established a Union Defence Force (UDF) that included a Permanent Force (or standing army) of career soldiers, an Active Citizen Force of temporary conscripts and volunteers as well as a Cadet organisation.Ngorongoro Crater: natural wonder; Endless Serengeti plain; Thundering Victoria Falls; Soweto township tour; Kingdom of Swaziland: Switzerland of Africa; Table Mountain Cable Way; Cape Winelands tour and wine tasting; Robben Island Museum Prices are in Canadian Dollars (CAD), before taxes (if applicable) - All pricing reflects twin-sharing, per-person Land Only expenses, however, we can book flights from virtually every city. Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is our first port of call on this 24-day explorative adventure through Tanzania and Southern Africa and we take time to enjoy the city's memorable surroundings that display a pleasant mix of colonial British and traditional African influences before we set off in the direction of the highest mountain on the continent; Mount Kilimanjaro.Here in the foothills of one of the most majestic peaks in the world, we visit abundant national parks, where we can gaze at herds of red dust-covered elephants roaming the plains, and then it's through highland forest parks brimming with black and white colobus monkeys, past dramatic rolling green fields rife with traditional villages and to the rim of the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest unbroken volcanic caldera.
