34-day trip

The Ultimate Six-Country Safari

From 179000 PP

Overview

The Best of Africa

The ultimate safari spanning six countries in Southern and East Africa, showcasing the very best the continent has to offer.

From the oceanside city of Cape Town, to the spectacular Whale Coast and the peaceful solitude of the Kalahari, enjoy the diversity South Africa has to offer, before flying to the iconic Okavango Delta in Botswana to traverse its wildlife-filled floodplains. From there, journey to the mighty Victoria Falls, staying on the banks of the Zambezi River where elephants come to drink and hippos grunt in the background.

Next, fly to Vilanculos in Mozambique, a barefoot beachside paradise where you can enjoy the untouched white sands and watch as dhows sail by in the distance, re-energising for your next big wildlife adventure to Kenya's world-famous Maasai Mara, home to the Great Migration and an abundance of predators.

Watch the mega-herds from your hot-air balloon gliding over the treetops and the winding Mara River. Then north to the untamed wilderness of Laikipia, for a helicopter tour and some time at an elephant orphanage and rehabilitation centre.

The final stop on this 34-day adventure is Thanda Island where you will enjoy a private luxury island experience off the coast of Tanzania - five acres just to yourselves to unwind and relive your wonderful adventure across Africa.

Explore the Okavango Delta

Depart South Africa for Botswana, landing on a private airstrip deep in 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 of islands and channels that are a haven for wildlife and the setting for one of the very best safari experiences in all of Africa. It’s also home to a handful of the very best safari lodges and camps renowned for both their prolific wildlife and luxury design.

Explore the vast private reserve on day and night game drives, as well as walking safaris, while the meandering river is a great spot for canoeing and sunset boat cruises.

The next four nights here are yours to do as you wish, whether you want to kick back and do as little as possible on the beach, cocktail in hand, or get out and explore the protected marine reserve and soak up a little culture.

Luxury meets sustainability

What was once some 20,000 hectares of overgrazed ranchland in Laikipia that struggled to support the surrounding communities and wildlife has been transformed thanks to Segera’s pioneering community-first conservation ethos. Today elephants, lions, buffalos and elands roam free alongside endangered Grevy’s zebras, giraffes, patas monkeyss and African wild dogs.
