Travel from South Africa's capital to Botswana and Zimbabwe
This compact but eventful trip crosses three countries and takes in two of southern Africa's most famous sites - Kruger National Park and breathtaking Victoria Falls. Encounter lions, leopards, zebras and giraffes while travelling on safari through landscapes blessed with breathtaking natural beauty. From bustling Johannesburg in South Africa through beautiful, vast Botswana to colourful Zimbabwe, this African adventure is big on excitement and will be sure to thrill.
Kick things off with views of the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels – an amazing introduction to Southern Africa.
Camp within the grounds of Kruger National Park under the African night sky. You'll be right up close to the sounds of the wild, perhaps the roar of a lion, as you drift off to sleep.
Experience the rumble and roar of Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwe side, which gives you the broadest view of its phenomenal torrent.
On this trip you will be accompanied by 3 crew members - Group Leader, Driver and a camp assistant. Your Camp Assistant is responsible for setting up camp and preparing your meals so you can take extra time to relax at the end of your day.
Camping beds/stretchers, sleeping bags, blankets and pillows are provided for camping nights to provide an extra level of comfort.
Game-viewing in Africa means getting out of bed early. But the excitement of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth the early start!
Accommodation on Day 4 is a farmstay at a working cattle ranch outside Mokopane, so be ready for some real rural experiences. Facilities are basic here.
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!

Intrepid is an excellent way to travel especially for me as a single traveller. Got to meet some great like minded people. Intrepid conducts these trips in an environmentally responsible way and has the welfare of the animals and places at heart. Guides were excellent.

READ THE FINE PRINT! Got stuck crammed in a 16 person passenger van not an overlander truck as advertised. Had carry-ons at our feet. Food was pretty good. Would recommend the basic trip (save the $1000). Saw 4/5 of the big 5. Sights and animals was what made this trip, not the transport. Bring an iPod. Long travel days
