Days 4 — 6

Taste the Winelands

Days 6 — 9

The Okavango Delta

Fly into Maun, Botswana, before a short light aircraft flight into the Okavango Delta. Each year, the Okavango River flows into northern Botswana, spilling out over the Kalahari to create the world’s largest inland delta. This creates a huge, diverse and dynamic ecosystem that’s a haven for wildlife and the setting for one of the very best safari experiences in all Africa.

Days 9 — 11

Marvel at Victoria Falls

Depending on where you choose to stay, you’ll be based out of a luxury safari camp on the Zimbabwean or Zambian banks of the meandering Upper Zambezi. Known in the local Lozi language as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, or in Tonga as Shungu Namutitima, ‘Boiling Water’, the 108m tall and 1,700m wide roaring wall is a wonder of the natural world.

Overnight in Arusha

Fly from the falls to the Tanzanian town of Arusha, staying at a welcoming lodge in the shadow of Kilimanjaro surrounded by coffee plantations. Relax after your flight or try your hand at harvesting and roasting fresh beans.

Safari on the Serengeti

Fly from Arusha to the Serengeti where you’ll be greeted by an instantly recognizable vista. Savannah plains dotted with rocky koppie outcrops and umbrella-shaped acacia trees, with wandering elephants, giraffes, lazing lion prides, slinking cheetahs and so much more.
