Pawtucket, RI (July 10, 2023) – Collette’s immersive experiences in Africa have been a hit with travelers in 2023. Tours like Wilderness of Southern Africa: Safari by Land and Water and Exploring South Africa, Victoria Falls, and Botswana have seen rave reviews due to the culturally enriched itineraries.

As part of the Wilderness of Southern Africa: Safari by Land and Water tour travelers traverse the area in multiple fashions, plus get the chance to dine with locals. On the 13th day of the tour, travelers pay a visit to a local family in Victoria Falls. During the visit they’ll get to enjoy an authentic, simple, home-hosted meal and learn what life is like for the household. Throughout the tour, there isn’t a shortage of opportunities to absorb the wildlife. Travelers get to ride amongst lions, leopards, elephants, and other wildlife unique to Africa on a 4x4.

During the cruise, they’ll be able to observe plenty of birdlife and game species that call the area home.
