Overview

This camping safari adventure takes us through three countries: South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Our first experience are game drives in the famous Kruger National, where we have the possibility of seeing big cats, rhino and herds of buffalo, zebra and wildebeest. We cross the border into Zimbabwe where our first stop is the UNSECO World Heritage ruins of Great Zimbabwe with its towers and fortified walls. It’s then onto Matobo National Park, where we experience the unforgettable maze of giant kopjes (granite rocks), perched atop of each other, and sunset rhino viewing opportunities. The following days’ at Hwange National park is a supreme experience to track the abundant elephant, leopard and wild dog populations. We have a day at the dramatic Victoria Falls before crossing into Botswana and Chobe National Park for a sunset safari cruise amidst the hippo and elephant. Our grand finale to this natural world experience is the world-famous, and UNSECO site, The Okavango Delta. Here, we travel by traditional mokoro canoes to our wild campsite, to seek out hippo, lion, cheetah, hyenas, elephant and the plentiful birdlife. Completing our tracks in Southern African, we return to Johannesburg via the Khama Rhino Sanctuary for a vibrant end to this supreme safari adventure.



If you would like further information on when to go to Southern Africa on safari and which trip suits you the best please refer to our detailed guide: Which safari is right for you?

Everything in Africa is on a big scale, and to cover the ground necessary, your journey across Southern Africa includes several long drives accompanied by Africa's spectacular scenery. Such drives, including your game drives, can often be on dirt tracks, graded roads and also tar highways. The driving times are indicated on each day. These times do not include stops along the way. We ensure that regular comfort breaks are taken, and stops try to be scheduled to visit interesting towns or sights.


Included in the itinerary are a variety of walks. These walks can be on paved surfaces, uneven sandy dunes or rocky terrain and are always accompanied by your experienced guide. Each walk is paced with time for your guide to interpret the environment around you. On some walks, it is vital to keep within the group in case of an animal encounter. When in the Okavango Delta we travel by mokoro canoe. These are traditional dug-out canoes and we may have to walk in the shallows to board at water level.


The majority of nights you will be camping. Designated campsites have showers and some have a bar and swimming pool. There are also 2 nights that we wild camp. You will need to put your tent up, and help pack up the truck in the mornings. Most of the meals are prepared by the guides and it is good group etiquette to help with preparation and washing up on these days and this is usually done on rotation - it's all part of the adventure and when everyone puts in a little effort the trip runs smoothly. This journey is suitable for the adventure traveller looking to experience some of Africa's most special safari experiences.

Why KE?

This beautiful safari does game drives in the National Parks of Kruger in South Africa, Hwange in Zimbabwe and Chobe in Botswana. This gives us ample time to see a variety of wildlife, special UNESCO sites and meet many smiling people along the way.

With an early departure we head north-east to Kruger National Park for our first Southern African safari experience. This is South Africa's premier national park for viewing Big Game. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of almost 20,000 square kilometres is unrivalled in terms of biodiversity and is a world leader in advanced environmental management policies. Kruger is home to an impressive number of species, including the Big Five: lion, leopard, black rhino, elephant and Cape Buffalo. We spend our first night in the African bush and enjoy our first African sunset and accompanying sundowner (pre-dinner drink at sunset).

Approximate drive time: 8 hours. With stops and lunch a total travel day of 10-11hrs.

This morning we wake early and game drive north through the park to the Pafuri region. The northern Kruger is dominated by mopane veld and is the domain of large elephant bulls, wild dog and lions. There are many antelope in the park, including Eland, the smaller Steenbok and the most common, skittish Impala and fancy horned Kudu. As we reach the Limpopo Valley the vegetation changes to forest and birdlife is prolific. Kruger is a super place to start our safari adventure as it's so iconic and packed full of exciting wildlife. We exit the park, late in the afternoon to our campsite.

Approximate game drive time: 8 hours. With stops and lunch a total travel day of approximately 10 hours.

Leaving South Africa we cross our first border at Zimbabwe's panoramic Beit Bridge. After processing formalities, we venture onto one of Southern Africa's most treasured sights, the ruins of Great Zimbabwe. According to legend, this ancient land of the Queen of Sheba and its well preserved ruins, some of the largest stone structures in Southern Africa, are an exceptional testimony to the Bantu civilisation of Shona spanning 11th to 14th centuries.

Approximate drive time: 6-7 hours. Including stops and border crossings a travel day of approximately 9-10 hours.

We have a guided walk around these Great Zimbabwe Ruins. They predominately are divided into three sections: The Hill Ruins, The Great Enclosure and the Valley Ruins and our guide will passionately give us insight into them. We then leave the area and drive via the bustling town of Bulawayo, to the Matobo National Park. With an abundance of majestic viewpoints, the bald granite peaks of the UNESCO Matobo Hills are home to an array of ancient bushman paintings and wide variety of animal species such as Kudu, Duiker, Rock Dassies and Eland. We relax on arrival and enjoy a sundowner from the granite ridge overlooking the park.

This morning we visit World's View and the historical site of Cecil John Rhodes' grave. We explore the park in our vehicle and head out on foot, and this is really the best way to appreciate the size and splendour of this most unique national park as we hope to spot impala, rock hyrax and birdlife. During our game drive and walks we visit the ancient bushman paintings which are hidden in between these unusual rock formations. This area is also home to Zimbabwe's Rhino which we hope to see on our excursion in the national park. After a full and exhilarating day we return to our campsite for a second night.

With an early start we head into our first 'Big 5' Zimbabwe National Park - Hwange. Named after a local Nhanzwa chief, this is the country's largest National Park and it is rich in wildlife. Famed for its enormous elephant population, is it also full of lions, hyenas, giraffes, cheetahs and one of the largest surviving populations of wild dogs in Africa. Due to the parks vast size the vegetation and game varies greatly from desert scrub through to granite kopjes and mopane woodlands in the north. Our camp for the next two nights is in the game management area that borders the park, and provides the perfect vantage point to hear the evening song of Zimbabwe's night life.

Approximate drive time: 5 hours. With stops a total travel day of approximately 5-6 hours.

Today we are treated to a full day game drive in this fantastic national park. Our open sided 4WD vehicle is perfect for this experience, and our guides will educate us with interesting facts from the smallest dung beetle to the largest ears of the elephants. There are many waterholes which are a magnet for the wildlife and it's likely we'll see matriarchs with their herds. Lions are prone to lazing in the shade under the acacia trees in the heat of the day, whereas the ever moving antelope stay in the open, darting their eyes in search of the predators. Whatever we see and discover it'll be sure to be a magical experience seeing this incredible African wildlife.

Not far from Hwange is one of the most iconic natural features of Africa - Victoria Falls. This incredible natural wonder is twice as high as Niagara and spans 2km. Over 1000 cubic metres of water flows over the falls every second, plunging 108 metres into the gorge below*. With plenty to explore, we have two nights at the world's greatest waterfall.

Approximate drive time: 3 hours. With a visit to the Painted Dog Sanctuary a total travel day of approximately 4 hours.

*Please note, depending on the season, the water levels of the falls will vary. From late November to early April is the wet season for the upper reaches of the Zambezi and this is when the falls are at their loudest and most impressive. From April the flow gradually reduces, although this mostly affects the Zambia side and there is always a good flow over the rim on the Zimbabwe side of the falls.

We have a full day here at Victoria Falls. Locally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which translates to the 'Smoke that Thunders', there are many superb vantage points to view Victoria Falls in her full glory, which includes the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, commissioned by Cecil John Rhodes in 1900 and spans the immense gorge. You may choose to meander through the handicraft markets for a last minute souvenir, or simply relax. If you are feeling a little more adventurous or wish to see the falls from a different angle, you may wish to consider one of the extra activities that are available to book and payable locally. These include white water rafting or a half-day canoeing the Zambezi. Whatever you chose you'll have a fabulous day on this incredible journey through Southern Africa.

Leaving behind Zimbabwe we cross into the laid-back nation of Botswana, destination Kasane. Chobe National Park is a great start to our time in Botswana. During the year the elephant population can vary from 500-50,000 and are most likely to be found on the banks of the Chobe River, cooling off. Wild dog, zebra and the endemic Chobe Puku antelope are also present in the park. Taking to the water in the afternoon, we embark on a sunset safari cruise to optimise our chances to meet herds of these majestic animals. Finishing the safari we head to campsite and our first evening in Botswana.

Approximate drive time: 1 hour. With border crossings a total travel day of approximately 3 hours.

We set off early this morning to drive to Maun. We transfer into our open 4WD vehicles and drive into Okavango Delta. Every year, over 11,000 cubic kilometres of water flows from the Angolan Highlands into the delta, making it the world's largest inland delta. Okavango's diversity stretches across 10,000 square miles and provides one the finest arena's to experience Botswana's wild side. We meet our local guides with their mokoro's, traditional dug-out canoes, at the water's edge and we complete our journey on the river being poled along with the chance to spot the wildlife of the river, such as hippo and elephant.

Around midday we arrive at our wilderness camp and in the late afternoon we continue our exploration on foot. Before the walk our guides will give a safety briefing. We may encounter elephants, giraffe, zebra, red lechwe and even lions, on our walk and it is important to follow the instructions of the guides. After our walk we return to our camp for a traditional African 'sundowner'. We help out with the preparation of dinner and afterwards we settle down for the night in the delta accompanied by the soundtrack of croaking frogs and grunting hippos. It's incredible.

Approximate drive time 4 hours to Maun. 2 hour transfer by 4X4. Total travel time including driving and mokoro (canoe) to camp approximately 7 hours.

The best time of the day in Africa is the early morning and with the sounds of the dawn chorus all around us we set out in the relative cool on a nature walk to explore this wonderful wetland. Returning to our camp for a well-deserved brunch we have time to relax during the heat of the day. We head out again into the delta where we can enjoy another beautiful sunset on the mokoros before returning to camp or we may take another walk. Alongside the elephant and hippo we might also see wildebeest, impala mixed in with the giraffe and zebra munching on the lush vegetation of the delta and maybe some hyena. If we are extremely lucky we might glimpse a leopard and even rhino have been seen in this area in recent years. We settle down for a second night in this magical place.

An early departure from the Delta provides us with a magnificent opportunity to catch the early chorus of Okavango's resident game as we make our way back to Maun. This afternoon we have some time to relax or enjoy optional extras from Maun. At the campiste we can relax by the pool or we can explore the town which is the capital of Ngamiland, with a laid back atmosphere and several shops selling local handicrafts.

Heading south from Maun, we drive through wide open spaces on our way to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. This community wildlife project, was established in 1992 to assist the plight of dwindling rhino populations and restore an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state, and to provide economic benefits to the local Batswana community through tourism and the sustainable use of natural resources.

We head out into the sanctuary on a game drive hoping to spot the endangered Rhino. With a number of lush waterholes, Khama supplies the perfect habitat for rhinos to breed. Whilst the focal point of this visit is the rhinos, 230 species of birdlife and towers of giraffe all flourish within this rich environment. Staying in our here provides the perfect finale to our Africa safari holiday.

15 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 11 dinners are included in the price of your holiday. Non-included meals are in Johannesburg, Victoria Falls, Gweta and Maun where we dine in a lodge or local restaurant. We recommend you budget £10-15 for each of these meals.

Many places on this holiday have drinkable water from the tap to fill your personal water bottles. Please check with the leader at the various locations. Please take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) for days when drinking water out of the tap is not available. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Fresh produce will be used wherever possible and fruit squash, tea and coffee will be served with breakfast and dinner. Many of the meals are prepared by the guides and it is good group etiquette to help with preparation and washing up on these days and this is usually done on rotation. Some meals are taken at the accommodation or in local restaurants. Special dietary requirements (vegetarian or allergies) can usually be catered for, but it is essential that this information is received on booking. There is one cool box available for the group to put your own drinks in. Stops at supermarkets are regular to pick up supplies such as alcohol and soft drinks.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

In Johannesburg you will stay in comfortable tourist standard hotels in twin rooms with en-suite facilities.

When camping we stay at designated campsites, in or bordering national parks and towns. Campsite facilities are generally very good but in places can be basic. There are hot and cold showers, restaurants and washing facilities available at most of the campsites. A few of the campsites have swimming pools as well. We supply all the camping equipment with the exception of your sleeping bag and pillow. The dome tents we use are 2.2 x 2.2 x 1.8 meters and putting them up or down takes only 5 minutes. Tents have built-in insect nets. We supply mattresses, which are about 5 cm thick, warm and comfortable. The camp chairs have a backrest.

Wild camping - for 2 nights while in the Okavango Delta we camp wild. Wild camps have no facilities; we take our own water and all equipment. Wild camping is very enjoyable and please remember that we leave no trace of our stay and take all rubbish away with us. A toilet tent and a simple bucket bush shower will be provided.

You will need to put your tent up, and help pack up the truck in the mornings. Most of the meals are prepared by the guides and it is good group etiquette to help with preparation and washing up on these days and this is usually done on rotation - it's all part of the adventure and when everyone puts in a little effort the trip runs smoothly.

If you are travelling by yourself, you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Single tents and rooms are available for a supplementary cost. If you are planning on extending your holiday additional nights at the group accommodation are available on request.

All accommodation is subject to change without prior warning.

SAFARI TRUCKS
Years of safari experience into the design of the trucks. The trucks are built to comply with the latest South African transport and safety regulations. Your comfort is catered for with individual seats (with safety belts), ample legroom and large vertical sliding windows for unobstructed viewing and photography.

There are roof hatches for excellent "open" views and an integral cab and passenger compartment so contact with the driver is easy. Each truck also has large packing compartments, a built in kitchen, freezer, drinking water tank, interior lights and a gas stove (to minimise use of wood and destruction of forest areas). There is also a pullout set of steps into the passenger compartment, making access for clients easier. There is usually a bank of plug sockets in the vehicles. These plugs are the South African 3 round pin or 2 round pin with a hexagonal base. We also use minibuses for some small group safaris. All of our vehicles are bought new and serviced by Mercedes and Toyota agents, thus ensuring trouble free touring with backup support in practically every town in Southern Africa.

Where road conditions allow, such as South Africa and parts of Botswana we may also use minibuses. On 5% of tours we may use minibuses with 12 seats and air conditioning (with trailer for equipment and baggage). The safaris often have several long days of travel providing for a beautiful journey on the way to exciting and varied destinations.

LAND CRUISERS (Okavango)
The 4 wheel drive vehicles are based in Maun. For the national parks of Botswana we use these custom built 4WDs, with individual "bucket" seats, with trailers for the equipment. These land cruisers also have a bank of plug sockets or USB ports for charging.
These custom built game viewing vehicles are the first of their kind in Botswana. Each new vehicle has a built in "roll cage" that conforms to the latest safety standards of South Africa, and each individual bucket seat has a lap belt. The vehicles are constructed by a registered coach builder and ensure structural integrity of the passenger cabin in the unlikely event of a roll.

Group leaders are the key to any successful safari. On this adventure safari, you will travel with two qualified and experienced, registered field guides (FGASA). Two guides as crew, not a guide and a driver, adds up to an informative and interesting small group holiday. Our guides have a passion for Africa, her people and wildlife, and they love nothing more than sharing their knowledge with you.

We estimate that a total of around £375-425 per person (or equivalent in euros/dollars) should be allowed for personal spending. This amount should be sufficient to cover non-included meals and miscellaneous expenses, including tips to local staff. If you are intending to buy expensive souvenirs, considerable quantities of soft drinks / beer or undertake additional activities or excursions, you should budget accordingly (credit cards can be useful in this respect). You can choose to take your money in pounds sterling, dollars or euros. There will be the opportunity to change money into local currency on arrival at the airport (which we advise you to do) and your local leader will advise further places to change money en-route and at borders. Additionally, you will be able to get currency from bank ATMs in many of the towns that we will visit.

Many small traders will accept US$, Euro or GBP. Your notes should be clean and undamaged. And please avoid USD$100 and old issue ‘small head’ US$ notes as they might not be accepted.

On day 1, on arrival at the hotel in Johannesburg you can book a half-day SOWETO tour for $75 per person, or an afternoon tour to Maropeng Cradle of Humankind and Sterkfontien Caves is also bookable for $100 per person (min 2 people). Please check that Sterkfontien Caves are open, as they can close due to high water levels. Both of these tours should be booked on arrival (before 12midday) with our local agent and are payable locally in cash.

Your tour leader also works extremely hard to ensure that your holiday runs smoothly and that you are happy. We suggest that a tip of £2–5 per client per day for your tour leader is reasonable. When it comes to tipping the guides that we sometimes use for various activities (e.g. game walks, polers in the Okavango Delta etc) we suggest that a tip of £1-3 per client per ½ day activity, or the local currency equivalent, is acceptable. As in all cases with tipping, the final decision of the amount tipped is up to the individual. It is up to you to decide if you thought the service was poor, or exceptional, and the amount tipped should reflect that. The amounts quoted above are guidelines for you to get an idea of what to tip.

For this holiday you should take one piece of luggage and a daypack. Your baggage will travel in the gear compartment of the truck with the group, and there is a finite amount of space. Please keep the weight of your main luggage to 12kg. You should bring a soft bag as these are more suitable to pack in the vehicle. For the 2 nights wild camping in the Okavango Delta you will take only what you need and your main bag with remain in Maun.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

We sell this holiday in conjunction with our local operator in Southern Africa. This enables us to gather together sufficient numbers of like-minded adventurers to get the holiday up and running quickly. For this holiday the minimum age is 12 yrs, however it is unusual to have people under 16yrs.

As a member of the South African Tourism Service Association, our ground agent in South Africa may require you to complete an indemnity form at the start of your holiday, which you will need your insurance details for. As a client of KE Adventure Travel, your rights under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangement Regulations (2018) are unaffected and KE Adventure Travel will remain liable for the actions of our suppliers.

Great African Adventure ★★★★

To get the most out of this adventure (it's not a holiday) you need an open mind and a flexible attitude. It really is a case of the more you put in the more you get out. Helping one another to put up/take down the tents makes the job easier and quicker (although its still a fantastic feeling when you know its the last time you have to do it!!!!) The early starts and pot-holed roads are hard, but you get to see so much in a short time - beautiful landscapes and majestic beasts. Remember that the culture here is very different. No one is in a rush so border crossings and administration can be incredibly slow, but the tour leaders will guide you through it all - be patient! Remember to let the guides know you have spotted something so that they can stop and let you take photographs. Ask them questions, so that you can learn. Its a long journey, but try to ensure that you take time to look and listen at things around you. In general all the optional game drives are worth taking because even though you might not see the animal/bird you might hear them (especially at night). Always have warm clothes for the early morning/late evening, its cold in the open vehicles! I can guarantee that at some point you will take so many photos that the camera battery will expire make sure you have a spare charged. And because charging points are not always available you should have a power bank. And make sure you have a specific African plug adapter. My 'universal' adapter would not fit and had to buy one. Remember that tipping is expected (US dollars are preferred) and ensure you take lots of small ($1) notes, or you will over tip and run out of cash very quickly. It wasn't mentioned in the trip notes, but the flight over the Okavango delta is worth doing. Even though water levels were unexpectedly low it was amazing and there were large numbers of animals to be seen. However the low altitude, thermals and crosswinds did make it a bit of a bumpy ride so it might not be for everyone! The sunsets and sunrises are like something else and in between the clear night sky allows you see the stars free from light pollution - wonderful. If only we had seen a leopard. Maybe next time?

A wonderful trip, full of highlights ★★★★★

This trip has a really well-planned itinerary, full of interest and variety, with an emphasis on game viewing in different environments, but including other significant sights, such as Great Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls. You get to see wildlife from open and closed vehicles, from a motorboat and traditional canoes, and on foot, visiting major national parks in the three countries, as well as less visited places like Matobos National Park in Zimbabwe, where we got close to rhinos on a game walk (t hey are wild, but monitored around the clock for protection, so used to people). It was wonderful to see a lioness with four tiny cubs, and her mate resting nearby, alongside the remains of an elephant calf in Hwange, Zimbabwe (fortunately elephants are very plentiful there). I can recommend the optional night drive in Hwange, where we got to see nocturnal animals like bush babies, African wild cats, and springhares (aka ‘African kangaroos’). The optional morning game drive in Chobe, Botswana, was also great, seeing the park from a different perspective than on the included boat ride. The tents are up to the job and the camping is relatively comfortable, with hot showers just about everywhere except the two nights in the Okavango delta, where you can still take an outdoor camping shower. Many campsites have unheated pools, which are great for cooling down after travelling. The food was tasty, varied and plentiful, made with plenty of fresh veg. As a vegetarian, and the only one in the group, I was very well catered for, with separate vegetarian dishes instead of meat dishes, which I really appreciated. Our guides, Steve and Alan, did a great job. They had a relaxed but professional approach, taking good care of the group and ensuring the trip ran smoothly through their hard work, without micro-managing everyone’s actions. This was my second trip with Steve as a guide, and as before, he showed great respect for everyone we came across (as did Alan), and this set the tone for a happy and successful trip. Unlike the KE walking trips I have done, there don’t seem to be many single travellers on these Southern Africa safari trips, so if you’re travelling by yourself, be prepared to be in the minority - the dynamic is different, but still works. Early morning and evening game drives in open vehicles are cold! You’re given a blanket, but still take a warm layer, a windproof, and a warm hat to make the experience more comfortable. If you want to see the Zambian side of Victoria Falls on the free day there (a tour of the Zimbabwean side is included the day you arrive), get a double entry visa for Zimbabwe when you enter the country from South Africa. You can cross the border to Zambia on foot, visit the falls, and return to Zimbabwe on foot in a morning. The Zimbabwe side is the more impressive, but the Zambia side is well worth a visit, and has been quieter on the two occasions I’ve visited.
