Short of time but want to see Southern Africa? Check out Kruger, South Africa’s premier national park, visit Botswana’s beautiful Chobe National Park, and indulge at Africa’s most famous sight and adrenaline pumping playground - Victoria Falls. Ideal for those with limited time this lets you see some of the best of southern Africa’s attractions, on this exciting overland tour!

Day 1- 2: GREAT KRUGER

From Johannesburg - South Africa’s commercial capital - we travel via the panoramic region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to South Africa’s most famed national park - Kruger. The fences between the park’s borders and private game reserves on the fringes of Kruger have been taken down to form Greater Kruger and the park’s animals are free to roam the whole area.

Kruger and Greater Kruger cover over 24,000 sq km and are home to an incredible wealth of African animals from the dwarf mongoose to Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo). There is also an incredible diversity of birdlife and flora to be discovered. We spend two nights within the Kruger area and take game drives across the savannah to glimpse some of the wildlife that inhabits the park.

Day 3 – 5: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

Leaving Kruger and travelling north we spend a couple of days crossing from South Africa into the vast grasslands of Botswana via Francistown, Natal and the edge of the formidable Makgadikgadi salt pans to Kasane and the Chobe National Park, in the northern corner of Botswana.

Chobe is a vast reserve of some 12000 sq km and along the Chobe River-front lush plains and forests support a remarkable variety of wildlife. It is perhaps most famous for its huge elephant populations and is thought to be home to some 40000 of the 120000 elephants inhabiting this area of Africa. Whilst in Chobe we take an afternoon Fish Eagle boat cruise, relax and watch for hippo, buffalo, elephant and possibly lion, as well as an amazing display of birds, come to the river to bath and drink in the lowering light.

Day 6: LIVINGSTONE TO VICTORIA FALLS

From Kasane it is a short drive to Livingstone and Victoria Falls (Zambia side) where our tour ends. There are numerous activities and excursions to choose from in this area, easily enough for another day or two if time allows you a bit more time in Africa before flying home: white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, scenic flights (microlight, helicopter or small aircraft), canoeing, elephant back safaris and horse riding.

But don’t leave without seeing the Victoria Falls themselves. At over a mile wide and some 100 metres deep, in high water it forms the largest curtain of falling water in the world with spray visible from 20 kilometres away, hence their local name Mosi au Tunya ( ‘smoke that thunders’).
