Description

Set out from Johannesburg for a safari in Kruger National Park, one of Africa's leading game sanctuaries that covers more than 7,700 square miles of land between the Crocodile River in the south and the Limpopo in the north. It also boasts the greatest species diversity in Africa--more than 140 resident mammal species, including the iconic Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino). A 4x4 vehicle gives you nearly unlimited photo opportunities to snap pictures of zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, wild dog, and vast antelope herds. Then explore scenic Cape Town, once a colonial settlement, and today one of the world's most picturesque tourist destinations and most beautiful cities.

Day By Day Itinerary

VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE EXTENSION

This morning after your breakfast at the hotel, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Local people call it "Mosi-oa-Tunya" - the smoke that thunders. It is 5,604 feet wide and 354 feet high, making it the world's largest curtain of falling water. Remarkably preserved in its natural state, Victoria Falls inspires visitors as much today as it did David Livingstone in the 1860's. The falls and the surrounding area have been declared National Parks and a World Heritage Site, thus preserving the area from excessive commercialization. On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by a representative who will escort you to your hotel. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax. Later join us for a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River. The cruise is a superb way to relax and enjoy the beauty of the river. Be on the lookout for a variety of game; including hippo, crocodile, elephant and sometimes even rhino in their home environment, as well as many different bird species. There will be great photo opportunities against the often-spectacular African sunsets. (B)
Today enjoy breakfast at your hotel then depart on an informative guided tour of legendary Victoria Falls, one of the biggest and most awe-inspiring on the planet and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Enroute, stop by the ‘Big Tree,’ also called Livingstone's Tree, to admire one of the best-known trees in the world. At Victoria National Park, one of our qualified guides will guide you through the rainforest giving you a brief history of the falls as well as detailing the flora, fauna, bird, wildlife and other points of interest. The falls are massive and invite contemplation from many different viewpoints. You are invited to walk around the area and enjoy vistas. Raincoats are provided when needed. The rest of the afternoon will be at leisure to relax at the hotel. (B)
