Kruger, Falls & Zimbabwe

8 days,Livingstone to Johannesburg

Spot the Big Five in Kruger National Park, gaze out across Victoria Falls, observe wildlife from a 4x4 in Matobo National Park, witness Shangaan dancing, discover the less-visited Zimbabwe.

When it comes to raw, in-your-face wildness, southern Africa can’t be topped. This trip offers a fully immersive, unyieldingly authentic experience of the natural and cultural wonders of this incredible region. In Zimbabwe’s Matobo National Park, you’ll track rhinos on foot and the resident wildlife on an open-vehicle game drive, capture the Big Five (with your camera, of course) in South Africa’s Kruger National Park and witness the unique traditional dances of the Shangaan people. This isn’t a taste of Africa; it’s a full-course meal—with seconds.
