Spot the Big Five in Kruger National Park, gaze out across Victoria Falls, track rhinos on foot in Matobo National Park, feel the pulse of a continent at a dancing demonstration, discover four diverse countries, explore the Okavango Delta the traditional way on a mokoro canoe excursion.

When it comes to raw, in-your-face wildness, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe are incredible—and from the vantage of our rugged overland vehicle, even more spectacular. Witness traditional dancing, explore the Okavango Delta with a game walk and bush camping, track rhinos on foot in Zimbabwe’s Matobo National Park and capture the Big Five (with your camera, of course) in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Camping will keep you close to the incomparable scenery. This quick tour isn't simply a taste of Africa; it's a full-course meal—with seconds.
