Welcome to our picturesque Livingstone campsite, perfectly placed on the doorstep of Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Ready to dive in? Good! We’ve got some awesome optionals for you to get involved in. How about a bungy jump over the falls? Or a spot of gorge swinging? Or some abseiling? Or whitewater rafting? If you’d rather go for something a little less heart-pumping, you could always opt in to take it easy with a fishing trip or sunset cruise down the river.
Departing Livingstone, we’ll cross the border to Zimbabwe and pass through Victoria Falls town on the way to Bulawayo, a pleasant city with broad tree-lined avenues and wide open spaces.
Today: Matobo National Park! This place is home to a wide variety of animals, including black and white rhinoceroses, zebras, wildebeest and giraffes. We’ve got a half-day game drive to soak it all in – or, if you fancy it, you could opt in to extend the experience with a full-day upgrade.
Leaving Bulawayo behind, we’ll continue to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province.
Next up: Hazyview, where a cultural Shangaan dance show awaits. Kruger is South Africa’s premier national park – and, in connection with parks in adjoining Mozambique and Botswana, it covers a whopping 24,000 square kilometres of land used for the protection of African wildlife. Wowee.
Get your camera at the ready! Today we’ve got a full day’s game drive in store, so keep your eyes peeled for the Big Five (lions, elephants, buffaloes, rhinos and leopards). Want more? Well, you could be lucky enough to see giraffes, hippos and zebras, too! Nothing will prepare you for the first time you spot these incredible creatures in the wild. Expect goosebumps, and lots of them. If you want, you can even opt in to do a game drive after dark tonight.
Today we’ll leave Kruger National Park behind and make our way to Pretoria, where our unforgettable adventure will come to a close. If you’re up for exploring more of the city, chat to your guide about adding a few cheeky nights on to your itinerary.
