Three countries and all the extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife of southern Africa! In South Africa, enjoy exciting encounters with the “Big Five” in famed Greater Kruger National Park and neighboring Timbavati, a private game reserve. Then it’s on to Zambia for game viewing along the Zambezi River and stunning views of the crashing waters of Victoria Falls. Your grand finale? Tracking the epic wildlife of Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the savannas of Chobe National Park. Thrilling game viewing by day, candlelit dinners amid the sounds of the African night, stylish safari camps and lodges, the expertise of our safari guide extraordinaire—it all adds up to spectacular adventure.
Every single piece of the trip went like clockwork. The food was excellent, the wildlife viewing a once in a lifetime experience, the guides were very professional, courteous, and competent. All in all, a stupendous trip.

Timbavati Private Game Reserve, South Africa
On savannas surrounding our wonderfully appointed tented camp, head off-road in open-sided vehicles for close views of the “Big Five”—lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard. You’ll also be able to take optional bush walks with an expert tracker and night drives to look for elusive genets and leopards on the hunt.
Johannesburg / Victoria Falls, Zambia
Enjoy the majesty of Victoria Falls, walking trails right along the river for magnificent views of the thundering waters, and search for wildlife along the lush banks of the Zambezi while on a sunset cruise (with a sundowner in hand, of course!).
Chobe National Park, Botswana
In the legendary game-rich Savuti region of Chobe, track lions, leopards, hyenas and their prey, including large herds of giraffe, zebra, and antelope, and savor unparalleled elephant viewing, with herds numbering in the thousands.
Flying right to remote Xugana Lodge, set on a private island in the Okavango Delta, game view by mokoro (canoe) in lily–filled lagoons and enjoy open-air dining and crimson sunsets over the Delta. At night, listen to the hippos that come ashore to graze around camp. Depart on Day 11.
