Botswana, South Africa & Zambia

Introducing Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth

2014 Prices From $8,890 plus on-tour air for 12 Days - Tauck World Discovery

Tauck and BBC Earth take you on a celebration of Southern Africa’s natural world... specifically the national parks of Botswana and Zambia, which together are amongst the largest concentrations of unspoiled wilderness and wildlife left on the planet... If you want to get closer than an open-air safari vehicle can take you, you’ve come to the right place. Enter the world of the great white shark with an underwater pole camera...set up infrared camera traps to capture elephants passing through the camp while you sleep... 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 Africa you’ve been looking for. Siya namkela nonke! (welcome!)

The Tauck Difference

There is nothing awkward about the teenage lions we walked with in Zambia.  They moved gracefully, when they weren’t nipping at each other’s ears.  All along our guide told us about other lions they raised until they were able to go it alone. There was pride in the program and a degree of melancholy as he spoke about having to one day say goodbye to our companions for the day.

– Kelly Rossiter, Tour Architect
