Summary

Explore Southern Africa

Discover the allure of southern Africa as you roam from the golden plains of the world-famous Kruger National Park and the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls to the watery wonderland of the Okavango Delta and the teeming game parks of Botswana. Whether it's spotting the Big Five, relaxing by dreamy lagoons, experiencing tribal village life or cavorting near raging waterfalls, this adventure tour will fill your memories with the wonders of the African south.

Day 1 Johannesburg
It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums.

Day 2 Khama Rhino Sanctuary

Dedicated to saving the endangered rhino and helping improve the area's animal numbers, Khamo Rhino Sanctuary's young yet beautiful park is flourishing with wildlife.

Day 3 Maun
Maun is a small town in Botswana that's the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Despite its touristy veneer, it still retains its rural feel.

Days 4-5 Okavango Delta
Full of animals, islands and unforgettable scenery, the Okavango Delta is the world's largest inland delta and is best explored by mokoro (dugout canoe).

Day 6 Maun
With donkeys competing with cars on the streets and cattle sellers operating alongside Delta tour operators, Maun has more on offer than the spectacular Okavango Delta.

Day 7 Chobe National Park

Days 8-9 Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is a town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, with spectacular views and a reputation as the adventure capital of Zimbabwe.

Day 10 Hwange National Park

Day 14 Blouberg
Located in the foothills of the Blouberg Mountains, the village of Blouberg is home to a small community of the Hananwa people who still lead a very traditional lifestyle.

Days 15-16 Kruger National Park
Created to control diminishing animal numbers due to hunting, Kruger National Park became official in 1926 and is now deservedly one of Africa's premier safari parks.
