Safari in Three Epic Destinations of Southern Africa

Overview

Three great destinations of Southern Africa on one journey: Botswana’s spectacular Okavango Delta, the thrilling wonder of Victoria Falls, and legendary Hwange National Park, at 5,657 square miles, one of Africa’s greatest elephant sanctuaries. From your safari camp in the Okavango Delta, enjoy world-class wildlife viewing on game drives, game walks, and by dugout canoe. Flying to Victoria Falls, you’ll witness the famous cascade of the Zambezi River, more than a mile wide as it thunders into a sheer chasm. For your grand finale in Hwange, your game lodges are utterly remote, glamorous, and created as conservation partnerships with communities in the national park so local people benefit directly from nature tourism. You won’t find safari crowds in Hwange, just a vast chunk of wild Africa, 100 species of mammals, and an estimated 500 bird species! Enjoy game drives and walks, ride a vintage railway car, and savor lantern-lit dinners in Hwange’s epic wilderness.
