Combine the best of Southern Africa

Combine the incredible wildlife of Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Hwange, and see the natural wonder that is Victoria Falls. Explore the waterways and wildlife of Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta, and the huge number of elephants, predators and prey of the Linyanti Reserve. The wide variety of ecosystems you visit also provide opportunity for a wide variety of activities from game drives to walking safaris and canoeing.

This is not a group tour but a recommended sample itinerary. We can easily extend or shorten the itinerary to include more or fewer nights in an area, and can mix and match the accommodation to suit.

  • Impressive Hwange National Park, home to huge numbers of wildlife
  • Majestic Victoria Falls, an African icon
  • Botswana’s Linyanti wetlands, best known for its herds of elephant and superior birding
  • The Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s last unspoilt wildernesses
  • Explore the landscape on foot or by vehicle, boat and canoe

The easiest way into the Zimbabwe is from the South African hub of Johannesburg. Multiple major airlines fly into the city including British Airways, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Delta Airlines, Qantas, and of course South African Airways. From Johannesburg there are regular flights to Victoria Falls, the start point for this safari. Alternatively, for an Edwardian-style, luxury rail experience, journey by Rovos Rail from Pretoria in South Africa to Victoria Falls.
