COMBO #1: SOUTH AFRICA | ZIMBABWE | BOTSWANA
Fly into Cape Town, either direct or via Johannesburg, and spend three or four days exploring South Africa’s magnificent ‘Mother City’. Take in Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and historic Bo Kaap before heading north‐east with an easy connecting flight to the Greater Kruger for a Big Five safari in one of the sensational luxury lodges in this legendary region.
From there you can fly (on a fabulously convenient new direct flight on Fast Jet) to the town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Spend a couple of awe-filled days taking in the vast, dramatic beauty of the Victoria Falls, where the Zambezi River plunges more than 300 feet into the Batoka Gorge, creating the world’s largest falling body of water!
It’s a short hop by road from Victoria Falls to Botswana‘s border town of Kasane, the gateway to Chobe National Park, or you could take a connecting flight to Maun for direct access to the famous Okavango Delta. Your flights home, or even onward into more distant parts of Africa, can be arranged just as effortlessly too.
COMBO #2: BUSH & BEACH
Experience the best of both worlds with the Big Five and beachcombing in one trip! Straight after your Greater Kruger Big Five safari, you can fly out to the exquisite beach bliss of exotic Mozambique and its sparkling aquamarine crown, the Bazaruto Archipelago ‐ a cluster of picture‐perfect islands surrounded by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
Plunge into its pristine depths, snorkeling or scuba diving, to explore the carefully protected marine national park that’s filled with rainbows of coral reefs and a stunning variety of ocean life, from curious turtles and dolphins to endless schools of vibrant tropical fish.
South Africa‘s coastline hosts some of the world’s most lauded ‘Blue Flag’ beaches. From the gorgeously cosmopolitan Camps Bay and Clifton beaches on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard at the feet of towering Table Mountain to the more remote, rugged Grotto Beach in the famous whale-watching town of Hermanus, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to matching a Big Five safari with a Marine Big Five adventure!
#3: INTO THE WILD
From your South African safari, it’s an effortless hop, skip, and a jump to southern Africa’s most exquisitely remote pockets of wilderness, thanks to the combination of the area’s efficient network of flight routes and the superior knowledge of our travel experts. Combine the best of the ‘Rainbow Nation’ with Zambia‘s Livingstone and Victoria Falls, the Lower Zambezi National Park (one of our favorites) and South Luangwa National Park.
Another popular combination with your South Africa and Zambia trip is to include Zimbabwe‘s legendary Hwange National Park (easily accessed via Victoria Falls), Mana Pools National Park, and Lake Kariba’s Matusadona National Park.
