One of our most compelling trips in Botswana and South Africa tours some of the continent’s most spectacular wildlife reserves. Start with a two-night stay in Livingstone, Zambia – where you'll walk with teenage lions, visit remarkable Victoria Falls, and begin a safari adventure that takes you through the awe-inspiring national parks of Zambia and Botswana, home to some of the largest concentrations of big game on the planet, including Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Okavango Delta, and the Makgadikgadi Pans on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Your journey concludes with three nights in Cape Town, South Africa, at the continent's southernmost tip – a dazzling metropolis of exotic urban life, art, history, and culture. The landscapes you’ll visit (from rainforests and marshlands to savannahs, salt plains and desert) are as diverse and fascinating as the wild creatures that inhabit them, and the variety of means you have to meet them: including safari vehicle, motorboat, vintage steam train and on foot, in the company of a Bushman guide and tracker. Stay in luxury tented camps and five-star luxury hotels, enjoy sundowners under a blazing African sunset, dine at private homes, in elegant hotels and under the stars in the bushveld. With its range of unforgettable safari experiences and closeness of contact with African wildlife and culture, this is the ultimate in South Africa tours!
