Few experiences can match this exclusive, in-depth itinerary traveling the breadth of southern Africa, where nature's spectacle is at its most dramatic, history is rich, culture is diverse and "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 the 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, with superb game viewing aboard four-wheel-drive safari vehicles in the renowned MalaMala Private Game Reserve, an extension of South Africa's renowned Kruger National Park, 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 deluxe accommodations in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Victoria Falls and MalaMala.
