Pay the famous elephants and lions of Hwange National Park a visit from an open-air 4X4 vehicle
Track rhinos on foot with an expert local guide in Matabos National Park – an exhilarating way to experience the wildlife of Zimbabwe
Immerse yourself in the ancient culture of the Hananwa people at a small village in South Africa's Limpopo province. Listen to stories of this fascinating community as your hosts prepare you a traditional feast
Take in out-of-this-world views of Blyde River Canyon. This spectacular gorge is up there with the world's largest, and is the greenest of the lot
Staying with the Hananwa people (Day 6) is a fantastic opportunity to experience the age-old culture of an African tribe – great for those with an open mind.
The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino will be well worth any loss of sleep!
Our purpose-built overland vehicles allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. They have no air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot at times.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land!
This is a participatory camping trip, so team spirit is key. You'll be expected to help out with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
Some passengers on this trip will have been travelling together prior to the start of your trip. To see what you're missing out on check out our Explore Southern Africa trip.

Interaction with wild animals was excellent - managed to get a few metres away from lions, rhinos, elephants. Good fun trip - will meet some lovely fellow travellers and have a good time!

This tour ticked all the boxes, and was a truly memorable and at times scary experience. Camping in the bush with the animals roaming free was a unique experience, as was being up CLOSE to the big 5 not to mention the hippos. Our tour leader and crew were exceptional and the local guides excellent. Highly recommended.
