Get soaked by the powerful sheet of spray rising from the thunderous Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Choose to partake in some wild adventure activities or simply take in the falls from all angles.
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.
After an optional early morning game drive, make the journey to Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta.
Guided by local polers, explore the delta’s snaking waterways in a traditional mokoro canoe, the perfect way to witness the abundant wildlife that lives here. Spend the night camping on a remote island surrounding by the sounds of nocturnal life.
A sanctuary founded to protect Botswana’s endangered black and white rhino population, the Khama Rhino Sanctuary is not only a great way to see a huge number of animals up close on a game drive, it is an inspiring place that also helps the local community.
Return to South Africa and jump on a bike to explore Soweto, an infamous Johannesburg neighbourhood that is the heart of this city, and learn about its tumultuous history. Spend time in the museums, restaurants and parks of this vibrant city before farewelling this incredible southern African adventure.
