It’s time for an unforgettable journey through the heart of Africa. With luxury tented camp stays, immersive township visits, and open-air safari game drives, few destinations offer this blend of adventure and serenity. Whether you're a seasoned adventurer or a first-time explorer, safaris offer an enriching cultural experience and a chance to get a closer look at some of your favourite animals in their natural habitat.

Botswana’s Unspoiled Treasures

Africa is a treasure trove of ecological gems, and Botswana is by far the shining star of the continent. Prized as the Jewel of the Kalahari, the Okavango Delta provides support to an abundance of wildlife and over 1,000 plant species. On the Exploring South Africa, Victoria Falls & Botswana small group tour, travellers spend a day in northern Botswana at Chobe National Park getting to know their surroundings alongside locals and expert guides. Between safari cruises and game drives, the odds of seeing members of the Big 5 look good around here!

Africa’s Diverse Wildlife

Buffalos, elephants, reedbucks, impalas, zebras, warthogs, hippos, and other wildlife surround you whether you can see them or not. Often camouflaged by the landscape and plant life, lions, leopards, hyenas, and several other sly hunters prefer to stay hidden. But with plenty of opportunities, like immersive overnights at The Wallow Lodge by Victoria Falls and a variety of daily safaris, being camera ready is a must! Africa’s spectacular setting attracts few visitors compared to most destinations, making it a perfect place for nature lovers and photographers to gain a fresh perspective.

Vibrant Cities

From Marrakesh in Morocco dating back to the Berber empire to South Africa’s Cape Town, a blend of new and old can be clearly seen from one country to the other. Walking through ancient medinas in Rabat, Morocco’s capital gives travellers an entirely new perspective of this eclectic region – especially when comparing it to Cape Town’s modern influence. Nairobi, Kenya's capital, is filled with bustling street markets, food, art, and culture. Its close proximity to national parks offers travellers an urban haven that seamlessly blends with its surrounding wildlife and expansive game reserves.

Great Geological Wonders

Southern Africa is home to some of the most magnificent sites in the world and attract travellers from near and far come to witness them. Known as the "Smoke that Thunders," Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The Zambezi River plunges 354 feet over a cliff, creating a curtain of mist and a deafening roar that often surprises its visitors. Moving up, travellers will find the Sahara covering much of North Africa. It’s the world's largest hot desert with a vast expanse of sand dunes, rocky plateaus, and oases that create a dramatic and otherworldly landscape. On the Colours of Morocco small group tour, travellers commute by camel to sleep under the Saharan stars at a luxury tented camp.
