Glimpse a world primeval on this singular 14-day journey that features exclusive safaris through some of Southern Africa’s great wildlife sanctuaries in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Zambia. Our small group size - limited to 24 travelers – assures us an intimate experience as we encounter these unspoiled natural refuges. The adventure begins with sightseeing in Johannesburg’s renowned Soweto district, and visits to Nelson Mandela’s and Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s homes. Leaving urban life behind, spend three nights near Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls. Experience the spectacular falls – among the world’s largest – up close on a guided walk and take a game drive in search of the elusive black rhino. A “Sundowner” Zambezi dinner cruise offers another opportunity to observe wildlife. For a window on local life, visit Victoria Falls town and a local grade school. Continuing on to Botswana’s Chobe National Park, which boasts one of Africa’s largest concentrations of wildlife, embark on sensational boat safaris and game drives with three nights here. Then take a privately chartered flight to Zambia for a small group tour highlight: unparalleled wildlife viewing at South Luangwa National Park, an untouched region of eastern Zambia along the meandering Luangwa River. During a relaxing three-night stay at the Mfuwe Lodge, enjoy a variety of activities, including open-vehicle game drives, walking safaris, a local school visit, and community performances, before transferring to Lusaka for the flight home. Discover South Africa’s sparkling “Mother City,” Cape Town, with an optional 4-day/3-night post-tour extension, including a full-day Cape Peninsula tour and a full-day Cape Town and Winelands tour.
