  • Be amazed by the sheer scale of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe


Arrive in Joburg and prepare for the adventure-filled days to come.
Enjoy a guided bike ride through Milwane National Park, keeping an eye out for the abundant wildlife that lives here. Spend the night in traditional Swazi huts called beehives, one of the more unique modes of accommodation on the trip.
Jump in an express taxi and make tracks to Hlane Royal National Park. Stay in the heart of the bush and go on a game walk to track elephants and rhinos on foot - a very cool experience.
Hop aboard a bus and then a chapa truck to get to Mozambique's attractive capital, Maputo. Check out this city at your own pace, perhaps indulging in its renowned seafood.
Continue on to Praia de Tofo a small town on the Indian Ocean Coast with a friendly laid-back vibe. Here we spend 2 nights in 'casitas' full of rustic charm.
Return to Maputo for another night in Mozambique’s vibrant capital.
Travel to the South African border and push onwards to the incredible Kruger National Park. Embark on afternoon and morning game drives to spot Africa's remarkable animals, including the iconic Big Five.
En route to Louis Trichardt, stop in at the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre to meet some rescued animals.
Catch a kombi to Masvingo, Zimbabwe's oldest colonial settlement. Visit the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, which are thought to be the ruins of a royal palace that dates back to the 11th century.
Following a fairly long travel day across the Zimbabwean landscape, reach Matobos National Park. Learn a little of the area’s distinguished local history, then set out in search of black and white rhinos on a 4x4 game drive.
Travel on to Zimbabwe's adventure capital, Victoria Falls. With no shortage of activities and outings on offer, perhaps stick around for an extra day after the trip finishes up to try abseiling, canoeing or witness the rumble of the continent's biggest waterfall.
