Botswana, South Africa & Zambia
Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth
2016 Prices From $9,490 plus on-tour air for 12 Days - Tauck World Discovery
Welcome to a celebration of Southern Africa’s natural world... specifically the national parks of Botswana and Zambia, which together are amongst the largest concentrations of unspoiled wilderness and wildlife left on the planet... One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment. If you want to get closer than an open-air safari vehicle can take you, you’ve come to the right place. One of our most compelling trips in Botswana and South Africa tours some of the continent’s most spectacular wildlife reserves. Start with a two-night stay in Livingstone, Zambia – where you'll embark on a "Rhino Walking Safari," visit remarkable Victoria Falls, and begin a safari adventure that takes you through the awe-inspiring national parks of Zambia and Botswana, home to some of the largest concentrations of big game on the planet, including Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Okavango Delta, and the Makgadikgadi Pans on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Your journey concludes with three nights in Cape Town, South Africa, at the continent's southernmost tip – a dazzling metropolis of exotic urban life, art, history, and culture. The landscapes you’ll visit (from rainforests and marshlands to savannahs, salt plains and desert) are as diverse and fascinating as the wild creatures that inhabit them, and the variety of means you have to meet them: including safari vehicle, motorboat, 1920s vintage steam train and on foot, in the company of a Bushman guide and tracker. Stay in luxury tented camps and five-star luxury hotels, enjoy sundowners under a blazing African sunset, dine at private homes, in elegant hotels and under the stars in the bushveld... this is the Africa you’ve been looking for.
