Itinerary

The journey begins in Zimbabwe's adventure capital. Experience the sheer wonder of the mighty Victoria Falls - they can be heard long before they are seen.
Enjoy time relaxing in the city of Bulawayo then venture into the Matobo National Park, home to a large population of black and white rhinos. Take an optional walking safari to track these rare beasts on foot.
Explore ancient ruins thought to have once been a palace for Zimbabwean royalty.
Relax amid the gardens and galleries of Harare city.
Embark on a long, scenic drive and cross into Zambia. Soak in the stunning landscapes and camp just outside Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia.
Journey through the Zambian heartlands to South Luangwa National Park. The most intact major river system in all of Africa, the Luangwa River is home to huge numbers of crocodiles and hippopotamus, while on the plains leopards, lions, elephant, buffalo and giraffe roam. By taking an early morning game drive we’re likely to catch them at their most active.
Kick back on the peaceful shores of Lake Malawi. Indulge in the many optional water activities, such as scuba diving, and be sure to take the opportunity to meet the locals - Malawians are some of the friendliest people in Africa.
Sit back, relax and watch the countryside roll by en route to Chitimba. Pitch camp in the grounds of a local farmhouse and spend the night on the outskirts of this pleasant settlement.
Travel through Mikumi National Park spotting elephants, buffaloes and giraffes. Camp on the grounds of a beachside hotel outside Dar es Salaam.
Plunge into the sensuous delights of Tanzania's tropical playground, Zanzibar, exploring historic Stone Town, touring fragrant spice plantations and lounging under coconut palms beside the Indian Ocean.
Return to Dar es Salaam for more beach camping.
Spend a night amid acres of beautiful tropical gardens in Marangu, situated on the lush green slopes of Kilimanjaro.
Meet the Chagga people, sample traditional food and learn about the life of these crop-growers on a visit to the Mt Kilimanjaro village of Mshiri. Afterwards, head to Mto Wa Mbu for the night.
Descend to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater to see an abundance of wildlife including lions, leopards, zebras and rhinos. Then head to the wilds of the Serengeti to embark on thrilling safari drives.
Peruse the craft market of Mto Wa Mbu and admire the colourful fabrics, crafts and wood carvings on offer. Spend the night in Arusha.
