Few experiences can match this exclusive, in-depth itinerary and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel the breadth of southern Africa, where nature's spectacle is at its most dramatic, history is rich, the culture is diverse and the "Big Five" game viewing in pristine natural habitats is extraordinary. Follow Nelson Mandela's long road to freedom in South Africa, "the rainbow nation." A highlight of your journey is a three-night river safari aboard the exclusively chartered, 28-passenger, Five-Star Zambezi Queen on Namibia's legendary Chobe River. Enjoy naturalist-guided excursions by small watercraft, a unique alternative to traditional land safaris. Your itinerary also includes the classic land safari, where you will enjoy superb game viewing aboard four-wheel-drive safari vehicles in the renowned MalaMala Private Game Reserve and in seldom-visited Botswana, a haven for nearly all of the southern African mammal species. Visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites, including one of the world's Seven Natural Wonders, Zimbabwe's incomparable Victoria Falls. Enjoy Five-Star accommodations in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Victoria Falls and MalaMala Private Game Reserve, an extension of South Africa's renowned Kruger National Park.
