Tour Itinerary

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to Zanzibar

Today we ferry across to the magical 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar to spend three blissful nights. Discover the island’s idyllic, palm-fringed beaches, winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests, as well as its intriguing history as a major trading centre for spices. For centuries, Zanzibaris would trade with the people of the Arabian Peninsula and ply the ocean in simple dhow sailboats, relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town, so keep your eyes peeled when wandering the city’s historic pathways. The next four days are on your own watch, so spend your time exploring at your own pace.

Please note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic safari lodge/hotel accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar is included. However, lunches and dinners are your own to arrange. We usually divide our nights here between accommodation in Stone Town and accommodation on one of the northern beaches, but there are no set activities – your time is entirely yours to do as you please.

Included today:
-Ferry to Zanzibar

Optional activities:
-Spice tour
-Visit to the former slave market site
-Visit the Arabic Fort
-Visit the Palace Museum

Awake to another day in this dreamlike haven. If it's white sand, a sparkling ocean and hot sun you're after, head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Dar es Salaam to Mikumi National Park

Leaving the bustling city and warm Atlantic coast we drive inland through the Mikumi National Park and we may, with luck, spot forest elephants or giraffes feeding near the side of the road. Our campsite is located a stone’s throw from the park, where we’ll have the chance to sip sundowners at the local bar, followed by an evening around the open fire under the blanket of stars. If time allows, a game drive in the late afternoon will sate your appetite for a spot of animal viewing.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Mikumi game drive

Mikumi National Park to Iringa

After a scrumptious breakfast we depart for Iringa and Kisolanza Farm, which is at an altitude of 1600 metres, ensuring a pleasant climate in what is one of the most scenic areas in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Home to the Ghaui family for over 70 years, Kisolanza remains a working farm, which provides organic meat (beef, lamb and chicken) and vegetables to the surrounding markets. This farmhouse is famous for its amazing hot showers, chocolate brownies and hot chocolate; and of course Amarula, which can be bought at the quaint candlelit bar.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Iringa to Lake Malawi, Malawi

After our last night in Tanzania, we head through lush mountain passes, rich grazing land and both banana and tea plantations on the way to Songwe, the border post into Malawi. For the next two nights we’ll stay at the Chitimba Beach campsite on scenic Lake Malawi.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Lake Malawi

Enjoy time on the beach or shop at a large curios market, where you can test your bargaining skills and buy some of Malawi’s famous ornate carved chairs. Alternatively, take an optional hike to Manchewe Falls, or embark on the Chihanga walk with a local guide. These trails are beautifully serene, but can take up to ten hours, so be sure to get plenty of rest beforehand!

-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:

Lake Malawi to Malawi Beach

After a relaxing morning we take a scenic drive to Mzuzu, the capital of the northern region and the third largest town in Malawi. Here, we’ll stop for a short while to grab supplies and check out the markets before arriving at Kande Beach (also on Lake Malawi), where we stay for two more nights.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch

Malawi Beach

Try your hand at some of the water sports typically available, embark on an optional horse ride or simply relax by the lakeside and dip your toe in its warm waters anytime the need arises.

Malawi Beach to Chipata, Zambia

Upon leaving the lake we head for the capital Lilongwe to gather supplies for our onward journey into Zambia – which means a good chance to spend the last of your Malawi kwacha before we leave. Chipata, formally named Fort Jameson, is the capital of the Eastern Province of Zambia and is a colourful town with a number of fruit and vegetable markets and ornate mosques, thanks to its large Indian community. If time allows, we’ll make a stop in town before arriving to our campsite, situated a short distance from the town centre.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Chipata to Lusaka

Today we leave early and take the Great Eastern Road through lush country and small villages, crossing the Luangwa River to Lusaka, Zambia’s capital. Lusaka is southern Africa’s fastest-growing city, and is located on the southern plateau at an elevation of 1,300 metres with four main highways running north, south, east and west to different parts of Africa. Enjoy the peace and quiet at our campsite, which is situated on a farm outside of the hustle and bustle, and be sure to keep watch for the zebras, ostriches, giraffes and antelopes roaming freely around the outskirts of the main camping area.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Lusaka to Livingstone

Next up, we head south to Livingstone, our gateway to the majestic Victoria Falls and the continent's adrenalin capital. Setting up camp on the banks of the Zambezi, just a few kilometres from the Falls, you’ll have the chance to marvel at the sheer force of the water. In fact, the spray can be seen from up to 20 or 30 kilometres away, hence the local name Mosi-oa-Tunya – the ‘smoke that thunders’.

Leaving Matobo National Park, we continue south to the border at Beitbridge. Completing formalities we cross the Limpopo River – the second largest river in South Africa and an important water source for this arid region. The Limpopo also acts as a natural boundary between South Africa and its neighbours Botswana and Zimbabwe, before it flows through Mozambique to the Indian Ocean. We continue to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province. Our campsite is located at Forever Resorts at the foot of one of Limpopo’s rolling koppies set adjacent to the Honnet Nature Reserve.

Meals:

Tshipise to Greater Kruger

From Tshipise, we head for southern Africa's premier game reserve, Kruger National Park. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form Greater Kruger, an area of some 24,000 square kilometres. Animals are free to roam the enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the Big Five, almost every major African mammal (over 145 species) is present.
