|A journey to experience the natural wonders and rugged beauty of Zimbabwe and Botswana .....
Leaving Harare our first night is spent at a private game ranch where you can take a walking or horseback safari for a first taste of the African bushland and wildlife. We then head for the colonial town of Bulawayo and Matopos National Park - here you can visit the bizarre rockstrewn landscape of the 'View of the World', burial place of Cecil Rhodes as well as taking a game drive to observe its large population of both black and white rhino.

The sheer power and immensity of Victoria Falls make it one of the greatest natural wonders of the world - here the numerous exhilarating activities include first class white water rafting, bungee jumping from the famous iron bridge across the Zambezi and a spectacular sunset cruise to observe the hippos and riverside game.
Entering Botswana, the scenery becomes more rugged as we head for Chobe National Park, home of some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. Further west, our destination is the tranquil delta of the Okavango River whose wetlands create a paradise of islands and lagoons, home to many species of specially water-adapted birdlife and game. We use dugout canoes known as makoros to explore the waterways and at night camp deep within the heart of this unique area.
