DAYS 1 - 6
Zanzibar, Mikumi National Park
From Tanzania’s main port city, Dar-es-Salaam, we take the passenger ferry to Zanzibar the ‘Spice Island’ to experience three days of leisure and tropical delight and rich history. Zanzibar offers a blissful mix of exotic spice markets, winding alley ways and old Sultan palaces as well as turquoise warm ocean waters and palm fringed white sandy beaches. Returning back to the mainland, we drive southwards through Mukumi National park to the order of Malawi.
NB Basic shared accommodation is included on Zanzibar, however, meals will be for your own account allowing you to experience some of the many different options available on Zanzibar. Please refer to the tour dossier (available below) for more information

Lake Malawi, Lusaka
Malawi’s main attraction is the enormous Lake Malawi with over 600 species of fish (most of them endemic) the lake provides living to the many of the Malawi people. We travel along the shores of Lake Malawi stopping and camping on one of the sandy beaches. We have the opportunity to try scuba diving, snorkelling, horse riding or visiting a local Malawian village. From here we cross the border to Zambia and make our way to the outskirts of the capital Lusaka.
DAYS 13 - 17
Livingstone, Victoria Falls
From Lusaka, we drive south to Livingstone and Victoria Falls where we will be based for the next four days on the Zambezi River. Not only famous for being Africa’s greatest spectacle, but this is also Africa’s adrenaline capital. Try white water rafter, gorge swinging, bungee jumping. Alternatively, or, just relax and unwind at our riverside campsite

Chobe National Park, Okavango Delta, Windhoek, Etosha National Park
Leaving Livingstone we cross into Botswana to Chobe National Park. We enjoy a game cruise before continuing to the Okavango Delta. Explore the channels and floodplains on foot and by (dugout canoe) mokoro. Further south, we spend time with traditional Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert learning how they live. Across the border in Namibia, we enjoy two days in Etosha National Park on game drives in magnificent desert terrain.

This fun-loving coastal town offers a range of optional desert based adventure activities such as skydiving and sand boarding. We then continue south, into the desert and enjoy the dramatic terrain of sand dunes and vleis (dried lake beds) of the Namib Naukluft Park. Finally, we visit the Fish River Canyon, the world’s second-largest canyon. We stop at the Orange (Gariep) River before crossing the border and continuing south to Cape Town where our journey ends.
