January is peak month for color in the montane, subalpine and alpine meadows here. This trip features the most spectacular spots: Sani Pass, Sentinel, Naude’s Nek and more! A few details to get your spot.

The flora of Southern Africa comprises 10% of the flora of Planet Earth: Although the mild subtropical “Fynbos” flora of the Western Cape and the subtropical succulent flora of the Karoo are well known to many, the high mountain flora is extraordinarily rich and especially showy in the depths of North Temperate Winter.
This trip is designed to visit the key locations from Lesotho, throughout the Southern Drakensberg where Panayoti has found so many plants on his previous six expeditions!
