Jump into the electric beat of South Africa’s pulsating capital. Perhaps spend some time getting to know Soweto or discovering one of the city’s many museums.
Make a stop at the remarkable Blyde River Canyon en route to Kruger. Discover the thrill of game drives and keep eyes peeled for all the incredible wildlife that lives within the park’s boundaries. The most amazing thing about Kruger is how easy it is to see animals like elephants, lions, zebra, giraffe, rhino and wildebeast enjoying their natural habitat.
After an early morning game drive, head north to the Limpopo region and the town of Mokopane. Set up camp on a working cattle farm and enjoy the hospitality of local villagers, getting to experience the area’s traditional way of life and delicious cuisine.
Travel through the wilderness of northern Botswana to Nata. Explore the eerie Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, and camp under the endless night sky.
Make tracks to Zimbabwe and the incredible ‘Smoke that Thunders’ – Victoria Falls. See torrents of water roaring into a deep chasm and just try to avoid the spray that forms rainbows in the air. Explore the falls from all angles and perhaps take advantage of the incredible array of adventure activities on offer in this alluring part of Africa.
