Ultimate Southern Africa

13 Days/12 Nights

Experience the diverse wonders of Southern Africa on this ultimate bespoke journey. The trip begins at a luxury safari lodge - a great way to immerse yourself in all that is Africa and an enjoyable way to slowly start this exciting trip.  A change of pace takes you to stunning Cape Town: stand atop Table Mountain, tour the spectacular Cape of Good Hope, laugh at the humorous Jackass Penguins and indulge in food and drink in historic Stellenbosch and Franchhoek. 

The safari jewel of the journey is Botswana and the Okavango Delta. Unmatched game viewing can be anticipated. Botswana has a very different feel than your safari in South Africa. There are waterways, islands and a feel of being in the most remote Africa. There are large herds of Cape Buffalo, elephant, big prides of lions and hundreds of hippo. Game activities include drives in open vehicles, bush walks, boat safari, canoe trips in lily-padded channels and some areas even offer night drives.  

The trip draws to a close in magnificent Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Take a private walking tour along the edge of Vic Falls, cruise the Zambezi River at sunset and we highly recommended the helicopter flight seeing, the best was to get the full impact of the area.
