Detailed Description

On your first visit to Africa, there is always too much to fit into one trip as the continent is three times the size of the United States, and the safari destinations are scattered around the continent. Usually, the choice is South Africa, Kenya, Victoria Falls, or an extended big-game safari. This safari is handcrafted around the most convenient flight connections, so two weeks can incorporate safaris in both Kenya and South Africa along with two days at Victoria Falls. You will explore five of Africa’s most iconic destinations, including eight days deep in the safari wilderness. You stay in private conservancies where the wildlife encounters are more authentic and intimate, and you will enjoy so many of the once in a lifetime African activities, such as a hot air balloon ride above the Maasai Mara and walking with rhinos.

A new flight route has made Kenya to Victoria Falls to South Africa a realistic itinerary. Spend six nights in Kenya, two are in Nairobi where giraffes may peer through your hotel window, and two days on the Laikipia Plateau, which offers a compact and tranquil safari that is ideal for first encounters with the famous animals. You ease into the wilderness, discover what a safari is all about, and find escapism to complement your adventure. Then, you will fly to the Maasai Mara where abundance takes over, and wonder fills each hour. Hot air balloon at sunrise, walk the plains with Maasai warrior guides and be completely surrounded by wildebeest and zebra herds.

Fly from Nairobi directly to Victoria Falls and spend 48 hours around Mosi-oa-Tunya, which is also known as The Smoke That Thunders. Experience the spray, hear the waterfall growl, cruise the Zambezi at sunset, and find wild monkeys all around the camp. Two days is plenty to touch on all of the key experiences, including visiting Victoria Falls from both sides of the river. From here, you fly directly to Cape Town with Table Mountain being a majestic first impression. Indulge in city treats from historical attractions to cultural streets and contemporary restaurants. Then end in the Kruger with three days on an exclusive Mala Mala safari. You get closer, see more, and appreciate the fabulous contrast between a safari in East and South Africa.
