    5.0 - Excellent

    Outstanding and great organized trip led by professionals who also know how to spoil your tummies. 15 days full of highlights: Rhino sanctuary visit, bush camp overnight in Okavango, enjoying the traditional music and dances of the locals. The flight over the delta is absolutely spectacular and a must, spotting wildlife from the air. Chobe river sunset cruise with tons of animals around the water and a safari in the early morning spotting 13 lions eating a baby elephant for breakfast. Visited the majestic Victoria falls and we stand right next to 4 wild rhinos in Matobo NP...and I really mean standing as we were led by the rhino whisperer himself!! Plus the enormous Kruger Park in the end with offering the most spectacular storm I've seen in my life. Africa is just magical!!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • February 1, 2017

      What is the time of departure from Johannesburg on the first day?

      Day 1 of this tour is quite relaxed, to allow for everyone in the group to arrive and get settled after travelling. The only scheduled activity is the welcome meeting in the evening. This usually occurs around 6pm, but can vary slightly - we would be able to confirm this time closer to the start date of the tour.

      Here is the itinerary for Day 1:

      Arrive at any time.
      (If you arrive a day or two early, we recommended booking an excursion to Soweto or the Apartheid Museum.)

      Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting - 1 hour
      The adventure begins tonight. Feel free to explore, but make sure you're back in time to meet the group. After introductions, your CEO will review the details of your tour.
