Botswana, South Africa, and Victoria Falls

Overview

Journey through southern Africa, a kingdom of extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife, on this wonderfully varied safari in three diverse countries. You’ll explore South Africa’s enchanting Timbavati, part of famed Greater Kruger National Park (and home to the famous Timbavati white lions), and in Zambia, view game along the Zambezi River and marvel at the stunning views of thundering Victoria Falls. Your grand finale is Botswana’s magnificent Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta. Exhilarating game viewing by day, candlelit dinners at stylish safari camps and lodges by night, and the expertise of our safari guide extraordinaire—this is what safari is all about.
