Your guide will meet you upon your morning arrival in Johannesburg at O R Tambo International Airport. From here we depart for a short township tour of Soweto for a glimpse of neighbourhood life and to reflect on the apartheid history of South Africa. This vibrant city is home to a host of interesting attractions, such as the Twin Towers and Freedom Square, as well as Vilakazi Street which is the only street in the world where two Nobel Peace Prize recipients resided, namely Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the great Nelson Mandela. Included in this tour is a visit to the Nelson Mandela “Matchbox” House Museum and then the Apartheid Museum. You might like to get a bite to eat at the Truth Café found at the museum complex. Afternoon check-in at our charming little lodge found on the East Rand. Dinner can be enjoyed at the lodge. Overnight in Johannesburg.

We’ll transfer you after breakfast to Johannesburg’s O R Tambo International for you to catch your flight to Livingstone in Zambia, where you will be met on your arrival. Transfer to your lodge found on the outskirts of the town of Livingstone. After check-in and some time at leisure, you join a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. Beverages and snacks are included on this excursion. This experience will undoubtedly be one of your highlights on this tour, as there are not many better ways to reflect on how good life can be than to be floating along the mighty Zambezi River, watching the sun set over Africa, whilst sipping a refreshing drink. Dinner can be enjoyed at a restaurant of your choice found at the resort.
Accommodation: Avani Victoria Falls Resort
Sunset cruise on the Zambezi River
Day 4, 5 & 6:
The next day after breakfast you join a guided tour for a visit to the spectacular Victoria Falls, one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World”. The falls was named after Queen Victoria by Dr David Livingstone, who was the first European to view the falls on 16 November 1855. This powerful cascade of water, which stretches a mile wide and flows thunderously into a 360 feet deep gorge, is known to the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya meaning “The Smoke that Thunders”. A representative from Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to Dundumwezi Gate of the Kafue National Park being a mere 3 hour drive from Livingstone town. The camp’s guide / ranger will then meet you at the park gate. You can immediately start searching for four of the “Big 5” and all those other wonderful creatures on your 2 hour game drive through the park whilst driving to your lodge. Kafue National Park is teaming with wildlife and what makes this experience even more special for visitors is that you will have 3000 km² (1200 miles²) of wilderness to yourself. Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp is a small, intimate bush camp beautifully set amongst rolling grasslands. Your hosts at this lodge are also the owners, which means you can be assured of faultless attention to detail. Each night after dinner you may relax with a drink around the campfire to listen for any nocturnal visitors and many interesting stories from the owners and rangers about life in the bush.
