Overview

We seek out Africa’s top spots seeking for the secrets that lie withing the South Luangwa National Park, the heights of Victoria Falls and exploring the waterways of the Okavango Delta.
With the Dar es Salaam to Delta Adventure Tour, we seek out some of Africa’s top safari destinations. Before we cross the border into Malawi, we enjoy a game drive through Mikumi National Park (the fourth largest park in Tanzania). Lake Malawi offers a range of optional activities or simply a relaxing day at the beach. Then we will discover the secrets that lie within the South Luangwa National Park, stand above the heights of Victoria Falls and look for rainbows in the sunshine before making our way to Chobe National Park. Chobe National Park is undoubtedly the country’s most beautiful and popular nature and game reserve. It has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, making it an ideal location for African safaris. We then explore the waterways of the Okavango Delta by dugout canoe (traditionally known as a mokoro) on a three day adventure into the pristine wilderness. Here, you’ll have an endless list of activities to participate in, truly making the most of your time in this paradise. We travel further to the Ghanzi district in the central Kalahari. The Kalahari Desert is home to the San people and here will present us an opportunity to learn more about these fascinating people. Our tour ends in Johannesburg.
