June 24 to July 6, 2022

Fly from Cape Town to Botswana’s Okavango Delta, visit the incomparable Victoria Falls in Zambia and fly to South Africa’s private Sabi Sands Game Reserve. 

Long walk to freedom. Visit Cape Town's Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison. Penguin party! Near the Cape of Good Hope, observe African penguins, also called jackass penguins for their loud, donkey-like bray. Dr. Livingstone, I presume? Cruise down the Zambezi River in the wake of the legendary Scottish explorer to view the massive Victoria Falls. Wild times. Search for the “Big Five” in the marshlands of Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the grasslands of South Africa’s private Sabi Sands Game Reserve.
