Tour Overview


This exciting 27-day tour through five Southern African countries kicks off in Johannesburg, a remarkable city of contrasts known as 'The City of Gold', since its foundation in the latter half of the 18th century and its subsequent boom was instigated by the discovery of an abundance of the material in the region; it remains to this day the gold capital of the world. We meander down affluent streets lined with whitewashed mansions and grandiose residences, and saunter alongside poverty-stricken shanty towns of tin shacks and debris, all the while marvelling at the fact that the two are in incredibly close proximity to one another.

Jetting over to witness one of the world's most magnificent natural phenomena at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, we take a few days to explore this abundant area rife with beautifully lush gorges, before making a short stop-off in Botswana to check out Chobe National Park with a river cruise and a spot of wildlife-viewing. Our cultural exploration involves visiting British, German and Dutch colonial towns, traditional, mud-hut housed villages, bustling urban metropolises and quieter rural farming settlements; the entire gamut of cultural nuance on display in Southern Africa. As well as treading off the beaten path, through delightful sceneries of dense rainforest, towering mountains, plunging valleys and colourful flora, we hit the major tourist hot-spots for which the area enjoys worldwide acclaim. Our list of heavyweight attractions includes: the unforgettable rock-spiral vistas in Blyde River Canyon; Kruger National Park -- South Africa's largest game reserve wherein is to be found lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants and zebras; the dream-like technicolour landscapes of the area around the Namib desert in Namibia; and the best-kept secret of safari destinations in Namibia's Etosha National Park, whose astounding abundance of wildlife makes it perhaps the easiest place to view nature at its finest.
