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 your hotel situated on Mandela Square in Sandton City. Dinner can be enjoyed at anyone of the numerous great restaurants found near your hotel. Overnight in Johannesburg.

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.

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 Somalisa Camp will meet you on your return to the hotel and then he / she will transfer you to the Hwange National Park, a pleasant 3 ½ hour drive from the town of Victoria Falls. This intimate eco-friendly safari lodge with its elegant authentic contemporary Africa style décor can be found tucked away under the shade of an Acacia grove overlooking the golden savannah plains of Hwange. The luxury tents have a wood burning fireplace and a private viewing deck, as well as an indoor and outdoor bathroom featuring a copper slipper style bathtub where you can even enjoy endless views across the vast plains beyond.
