Day 1

Livingstone, Zambia

Welcome to our picturesque Livingstone campsite, perfectly placed on the doorstep of the Mosi au Tunya National Park. Our campsite makes for the perfect base in between heart-racing optional activities including rafting, canoeing, bungee, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights & river cruises. Head out for a thrilling adventure, or simply relax & enjoy the mighty Zambezi as it flows past your vantage point.

Day 2

Livingstone to Matobo National Park, Zimbabwe

Departing Livingstone, we cross the border to Zimbabwe & pass through Victoria Falls town & head to Bulawayo, a pleasant city with broad tree lined avenues & wide open spaces. Our campsite is located in the Matopos area, which is surrounded by interesting hills & rock formations & is revered as a historical, geological & natural heritage site.

Day 3

Matobo National Park

Channel your inner explorer today as we head into the impressive Matobo National Park with our knowledgeable guides. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings, so there's no surprise the area holds a special cultural & spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve has the largest concentration of black & white rhino in Africa & provided conditions are right, our guides will lead us on foot to some of the more concealed places in search of these magnificent animals.

Day 4

Matobo National Park to Tshipise, South Africa

Leaving Matobo National Park, we continue south to the border at Beitbridge. Completing formalities we cross the Limpopo River - the second largest in South Africa & an important water source for this region. The Limpopo also acts as a natural boundary between South Africa & its neighbours Botswana & Zimbabwe, before it flows through Mozambique to the Indian Ocean. We continue to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province. Our campsite is located at Forever Resorts at the foot of one of Limpopo's rolling koppies set adjacent the Honnet Nature Reserve.

Day 5

Tshipise to Greater Kruger

From Tshipise, we head for southern Africa's premier game reserve, the Kruger National Park. Fences between the National Park & surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24,000 square kilometres. Wildlife is free to roam the enormous area & it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna & flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the 'Big Five', almost every major African mammal (over 145 species) is present. Tonight, be treated to a show of traditional Shangaan tribal dancing & singing, before embarking on a full day game drive the next day.

Day 6

Greater Kruger to Kruger National Park

Have your binoculars at the ready, for today we hope to catch a glimpse of as much of Africa's diverse wildlife as we can. See how many animals you can tick off your list on our full day's game drive (you'll be the toast of the campsite after spotting an elusive honey badger).

Day 7

Kruger National Park to Johannesburg

We leave the Kruger National Park behind today & make our way to South Africa's biggest city & commercial centre, Johannesburg, where our unforgettable adventure comes to a close. If you're up for exploring more of 'Joburg', chat to your guide about adding a few cheeky nights on to your itinerary.
