From the majesty of the Cape of Good Hope to the vast expanse of rural Africa and the splendor of Victoria Falls, Southern Africa has inspired travelers and explorers for centuries. Follow in the footsteps of the great explorers on an adventure like no other. From Cape Town, see historic Robben Island, and then travel on to track big game at the Thornybush Game Reserve near Kruger National Park. Next, fly to Johannesburg to visit the historic township of Soweto, former home of Nelson Mandela. Board a Rovos Rail train in Pretoria for the fascinating journey through Botswana and Zimbabwe. Visit the thundering Victoria Falls before traveling on to Chobe National Park. Expert local guides and safari naturalists will bring your experience to life with included “off-road” game drives, excursions and fascinating talks. Your small-group experience includes deluxe accommodations, an extensive meal plan and wine with dinner. This journey is crafted to provide ample free time so you can explore on your own.
