What's included in this trip
Southern Africa Unplugged SummaryAdd to Shortlist
It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums.
Milwane National Park is Swaziland's oldest protected area covering over 4,560 hectares. The park is situated in Swaziland’s “Valley of Heaven” - the Ezulwini Valley - and has an abundance of wildlife.
A vast expanse of bushveld and its ancient hardwood trees make Hlane Royal National Park home to the largest wild herds in Swaziland.
Created to control diminishing animal numbers due to hunting, Kruger National Park became official in 1926 and is now deservedly one of Africa's premier safari parks.
With its attractive tree-lined avenues, Maputo has a unique European feel and some great local restaurants.
Inhambane is one of the oldest settlements on the East Coast of Mozambique. The sleepy historic town is known for its colonial architecture and is a stepping stone to the beach resorts around Tofo.
The lively coastal town of Vilankulos is our gateway to explore the clear waters and spectacular coral reefs of the Bazaruto Archipelago - home to some of the world's best diving sites.
Not far from the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border, Lake Chicamba is a popular fishing destination for locals and travellers alike.
Located near the border of Mozambique, Mutare is Zimbabwe's third largest city and sits just north of the beautiful Vumba Mountains.
The oldest colonial settlement in Zimbabwe, Masvingo is the perfect base to explore the Great Zimbabwe Ruins - the national monument the country is named after.
Matobo National Park has remarkable granite hills and valleys, over 3,000 rock art sites and is the resting place of Cecil Rhodes, the founder of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
Victoria Falls is a town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, with spectacular views and a reputation as the adventure capital of Zimbabwe.

Southern Africa Unplugged, April 2014
Brand new tour - has lots of potential. Leaders were fantastic! Some of the logistics need to be ironed out but has plenty of promise. Garland was an excellent, experienced leader. Extremely funny & sociable while always on the ball & well organised. The trip went very smoothly even when there were issues that he had to adapt to (eg vehicle breakdown, change of itinerary, etc). He is one of your gems (and I've seen a few of your very best leaders from all over the world)
