Wild Africa

  • Go on Safari in Kruger
  • See Victoria Falls & Cruise the Zambezi River!
Includes Return International Flights

Africa. Just one word is all it takes to fill your mind with images of dazzling sunsets, wild herds roaming the grassy savannah, powerful rivers leading to thundering waterfalls, and ancient tribes living in harmony with the untamed world around them. From boat cruises on the mighty Zambezi River to Big Five spotting in the Kruger and Chobe National Parks, the memories you make in the heartland of Africa will last you a lifetime.

With the 2017 season already completely sold out, time is ticking to secure your own 12-day journey through the wilds of southern Africa in 2018. This once-in-a-lifetime tour begins in Johannesburg, the rapidly changing capital of South Africa, then takes to the sky with a connecting flight to thundering Victoria Falls. The pinch-me moments continue in Botswana, where the Chobe Princess house boat will be waiting to take you on a two-night cruise along the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. Spot elephants, birdlife and hippos from the deck, meet Namibian village elders and learn of their fascinating cultural traditions. Transfer to Mpumalanga - gateway to Kruger National Park. Keep an eye out for the famed Big Five - the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and White/Black rhinoceros. Includes return international flights, seven nights accommodation, a two-night cruise, 16 meals, three internal flights, and professional English-speaking guides. *Note: 2017 dates are sold out. Get in early to secure your tour in 2018*
