Itinerary

The adventure begins in the bustling streets of South Africa's largest city. Perhaps arrive in Johannesburg early and visit the township of Soweto to learn about the country's recent history.
On the way to Kruger National Park, take in spectacular views of stunning Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels. Once inside Kruger, embark on thrilling game drives through the savanna, which show the circle of life in full colour. Spot cunning predators such as lions and cheetahs, as well as gentle giraffes and zebras. At night, camp in the middle of the park and listen to the calls of the wild as nocturnal creatures come out to play.
A final game drive through Kruger in the morning provides another opportunity to spot wildlife. Hit the road and travel to beautiful Botswana and stay overnight in the town of Palapye.
Head to northern Botswana and enjoy a safari against the backdrop of a warm, golden sunset. Botswana is known for its abundance of elephants so keep an eye out for these majestic creatures.
Rise early to continue the journey towards Zimbabwe. Travel across the border and be awe-struck by the enormity and sheer power of Victoria Falls. Hear the tremendous roar as torrents of white water crash into the chasm below and feel the mist of the water spray. There are many ways to explore this area of Zimbabwe and adventure activities are popular - perhaps try whitewater rafting, canoeing or abseiling for a memorable experience.
Get soaked by the powerful sheet of spray rising from the thunderous Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. At night, set up camp near the banks of the Zambezi River.
Travel to Botswana and embark on an afternoon cruise along the Chobe River. Try to spot wallowing hippos and basking crocodiles before watching the sun melt into the horizon over the grassy plains. There's plenty of time in the Chobe National Park to spot the magnificent elephants this reserve is famous for.
Journey to the gateway of the Okavango Delta - one of the world's most complex ecosystems.
Travel to the edge of the Kalahari to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. The reserve was developed by local communities to convert hunting land into a sanctuary for endangered black and white rhinos and other wildlife. Head out on a dusk game drive to spot some of the animals that make their home in Khama sanctuary.
