An African safari is a life-changing adventure—and sharing the experience with your family makes it even more special. Encounter wildlife big and small across the African bush on this incredible journey from Hwange National Park to Victoria Falls. Rise early to cruise the savannah in search of lions, cheetahs, and elephants; then, head back to your luxury lodge for an afternoon by the pool while the kids set out on a nature walk. Of course, no trip to Zimbabwe is complete without a visit to Victoria Falls—you’ll spend three full days just downstream from this beautiful, thundering giant. Pure magic.
*This trip is designed for kids age 7+. Trip price includes flights between Johannesburg Airport before and after your trip.
