Best of South Africa & Vic Falls

South Africa

One of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on earth, South Africa, fondly known by locals as the 'Rainbow Nation', boasts 11 official languages, and its inhabitants are influenced by a fascinating mix of cultures. Discover the gourmet restaurants, impressive art scene, vibrant nightlife, and beautiful beaches of Cape Town; enjoy a local braai (barbecue) in the Soweto township; browse the bustling Indian markets in Durban, or sample some of the world’s finest wines at the myriad wine estates dotting the Cape Winelands. Some historical attractions to explore include the Zululand battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, and Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town. Above all else, its untamed wilderness is astonishing: wildlife roams freely across massive unfenced game reserves such as the world-famous Kruger National Park.

Cape Town

Resting at the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic oceans, situated between the slopes of the iconic Table Mountain and the glistening sapphire waters of the Atlantic and Indian oceans, the exceptionally scenic city of Cape Town is in a class of its own.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is a landlocked southern African country. The country is blessed with fertile soils, mineral wealth and spectacular scenery. It is in the northern wilder parks that we operate the Grand Wing Safari of Southern Africa. The Zambezi has an exceptional variety of spectacular scenery as well as one of the world’s natural wonders, the Victoria Falls. The National parks along the Zambezi are legendary. Mana Pools and the Matusadona are located on the flood plains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and offer superb game viewing.

Along the Botswana border, the easternmost tongues of the Kalahari sands creep into the country and mix with the Teak forests of the interior. Desert adapted animals live in the same habitat as the woodland species. Hwange National Park is home to some of Africa’s last great Elephant, Buffalo, and Sable herds. The area also offers Zimbabwe’s best summer game viewing. Zimbabwean National Parks are safe and still offer one of the most superb wildlife experiences today. 

Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Days 5 - 7

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most impressive waterfalls. It is set on the magnificent Zambezi River which creates the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. These spectacular falls can be easily visited and viewed from the Zimbabwean side. Considered to be the world’s widest waterfalls, Victoria Falls measures an impressive 1708 metres in width. The small town of Victoria Falls, which lies adjacent to the waterfalls, serves as a great base from which to explore the many attractions this area of Zimbabwe has to offer. The surrounding area provides a wide range of adrenalin-filled activities for adventure lovers. Visitors can look forward to an array of wonderful activities including: scenic flights, micro lighting, white water rafting, bungee jumping, kayaking, and once-in-a-lifetime expeditions into the incredible Chobe National Park.
