Kruger to Vic Falls SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.

Kruger to Vic Falls, April 2014
Fantastic! For a country and area I was originally a little nervous to visit the guides were brilliant - with Tshepo really shining. They explained exactly what to expect at any point and how to act and what was important - could not have been better

Timon, Simba and Fitz were all very helpful, kind and knowledgeable guides. THey were all willing to interact and were the reason I enjoyed the tour so much.
