Just come back from my amazing 34 day Zanzibar to Cape Town trip. It flew past - I had such a good time. Sam and Julius, my trip leader and driver, were awesome, really helpful and funny and had lots of interesting stories to tell. Had a great group too and have so many fantastic memories. From the white sands of Zanzibar, the smiling, waving children of Malawi, walking with lions and swimming at the top of Victoria Falls, gliding through the reeds of the Okovango Delta in a mokoro, elephants wandering through the campsite, seeing all the wildlife drinking from the watering hole at Etosha, skydiving over the Namibia dunes in Swakopmund, climbing up Dune 45 through the mist only for it to clear with the sunrise to going up to the top of Table Mountain and feeling on top of the world in Cape Town. Really want to go back and I've only been home a day. If you are hesitating about booking - just go for it! I loved every second, well maybe not taking down tents at 5am but practically every second! Acacia are a really good company, our truck seemed so much nicer than some others who didn't even have lockers inside the truck. I will be back to do the Kenya to Zanzibar leg of the trip at some point in the future and know I won't even bother looking at another company to do the trip!

Itinerary

Day 1 – 3: Victoria Falls, Bulawayo - Matobo National Park

Our tour begins in Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), where there are numerous activities and excursions to choose from, easily enough for an extra day or two if time allows you a bit more time in Africa before our safari starts: white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, scenic flights (microlight, helicopter or small aircraft) and horse riding. But don’t leave without seeing the Victoria Falls themselves. At over a mile wide and some 100 metres deep, in high water it forms the largest curtain of falling water in the world with spray visible from 20 kilometres away; hence their local name Mosi au Tunya ( ‘smoke that thunders')

We depart Victoria Falls and drive south to the second city Bulawayo where we explore the majestic Matobo National Park on Game Drive and on foot with a resident guide. This is a great opportunity to experience being out in the African bush and possibly spot some Rhino too!

Day 4 – 6: Bulawayo – Tshipise - Kruger National Park, South Africa

Leaving Bulawayo, we continue south to the border at Beitbridge. Completing formalities we cross the Limpopo River -the second largest in South Africa and an important water source for this arid region. From here we visit southern Africa’s most famed national park - Kruger. The fences between the private game reserves on the fringes of the park, and the park’s borders with adjoining Mozambique and Botswana, have been taken down to form Greater Kruger and the park’s animals are free to roam the whole area. Kruger and Greater Kruger cover over 24,000 sq km and is home to an incredible wealth of African animals from the dwarf mongoose to Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo). There is also an incredible diversity of birdlife and flora to be discovered. We spend two nights within the Kruger area and take game drives across the savannah to glimpse some of the wildlife that inhabits the park.

Day 7: Johannesburg

On the last day of the tour, we travel via the Panorama region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to Johannesburg where our tour ends. Also known as the ‘City of Gold’, it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the African continent.
