Journey through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe and be amazed by powerful waterfalls, enchanted by encounters with endangered species and inspired by the resolve of communities emerging from darker times. Experience Southern Africa and walk away with renewed hope, inspiration and a heart full of memories.
Camp under an Africa sky within Kruger National Park. You can’t get much closer to nature than that!
Spot wildlife in Chobe National Park during a sunset river cruise. This is the time many animals – such as elephants, cheetahs and lions – come to drink so get your cameras ready!
Experience untouched wilderness of Botswana's Okavango Delta by staying on a remote island bush camp. At night, the sounds of the African bush are the only things you will hear.
Visit the only place in Botswana where both the white and black Rhinoceros’ still remain: the Khama Rhino Sanctuary.
Cycle through the colourful streets of Soweto with a local and hear firsthand about the townships’ rough but inspired history.
On this trip you will be accompanied by 3 crew members - Group Leader, Driver and a camp assistant. Your Camp Assistant is responsible for setting up camp and preparing your meals so you can take extra time to relax at the end of your day.
Camping beds/stretchers are provided for most camping nights to provide an extra level of comfort.
Accommodation on day 4 is a farmstay and a working cattle ranch outside Mokopane. So be ready for some real rural experiences!
Camping on a remote island in the heart of the Okavango wilderness is an experience you’ll never forget. However, there are no facilities. Dig a bush toilet and go without a shower, it's all part of the Delta experience.
A cycle tour in Soweto is included on the final day of the trip. It is not an overly strenuous ride, buy Soweto is not completely flat so you should have a reasonable level of fitness.
Wildlife viewing requires some sacrifice, like getting up before day break for dawn game drives. However, the lack of sleep is worth it for the exhilaration and excitement of spotting your first lion or rhino!
We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. This multi-purpose truck allows for great game viewing with large sliding windows. As such the trucks do not have air-conditioning and conditions can be dusty and hot.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads.
1. A single supplement is available on this trip. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.
2. This is a combination trip made up of two shorter trips. This means the composition of your group may change in Victoria Falls as some group members leave and new ones join you.
3. This trip finishes in Soweto on Day 16 after our cycle adventure. Please don't book any international flights until after 8pm this evening.
Our Experience Southern Africa trips score an average of 4.88 out of 5 based on 25 reviews in the last year.
What a fantastic trip! The wildlife was incredible. The Intrepid team did not disappoint. If you are seeking a bit of adventure and want to experience Southern Africa I would highly recommend this trip. There can be long days in the truck, however, the experience makes up for it all.

No WiFi available on last night which is essential to check flights and travel details. Spent a lot on data charges to confirm flights. WiFi indicated on itinerary but it didn't work in either of the Soweto B&B houses where the group stayed.
