Want the lion’s share of captivating cities, private game reserves, natural wonders, and wondrous wildlife? Point your compass south for the diverse and enchanting sights of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana.
The glorious panoramas from Cape Town’s Table Mountain and the candy-hued streets of the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood set the stage for the sweet sights to come. Six open-air private game reserve drives near Kruger National Park offer a fascinating glimpse of up to 42 mammal species and 350 bird species. Keep your eyes peeled for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo—before branching out in Johannesburg. Here, you’ll explore Soweto, the city’s largest township, including the former home of Nelson Mandela and the significant sites of the anti-apartheid movement. Your South Africa holiday crescendos at Victoria Falls, called Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) on the Zambezi River. Twice the height of Niagara Falls, this breathtaking waterfall spanning the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia offers twice the photo ops.
Looking for more fun and game? Chobe National Park is the perfect way to end your tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe. Boasting games drives through diverse ecosystems and relaxing boat excursions on the Chobe River, Botswana’s first national park is home to one of the greatest game concentrations on the continent.
