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!

DAYS 1 - 4: Zanzibar

From the port city of Dar es Salaam we catch a ferry to Zanzibar - the ‘Spice Island’! Zanzibar was one of the most important centres on the East African coast with slaves and spices historically being two of the main exports. Time here is yours to enjoy Zanzibar at your own leisure. Stone Town is the capital and our entry point into this island paradise. Many people choose to spend at least one night here to explore the winding cobbled alleys, market stalls and Arabic architecture. For those wanting to simply relax there are Palmfringed beaches and warm blue ocean waters to enjoy at the northern beaches.

NB Basic shared accommodation is included on Zanzibar however meals will be for your own account allowing you to experience some of the many different options available on Zanzibar. Please refer to the tour dossier (available below) for more information.

DAYS 5 - 12: MIkumi National Park, Lake Malawi, Lusaka

Back on the mainland, we have time to browse the curio markets before driving via pretty Mikumi National Park to Malawi. Malawi is one of the friendliest countries on tour and home to the third-largest fresh water lake on the continent. We travel south along the shore of Lake Malawi stopping at various camps to enjoy the hospitality of the local people by day and relax under huge star-filled skies in our camp at night. At Kande Beach try scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing and horse riding, as well as a village walk. Leaving the lake, we drive out of Malawi and through Zambia to Lusaka for a night near the country’s capital.

DAYS 13 - 16: LIvingstone, Victoria Falls

We arrive at Livingstone close to Africa’s Victoria Falls. This is Africa’s adrenaline capital, with white water rafting, bungy jumping and gorge-swinging available, to name but a few! For something more relaxing why not take an elephant back safari, horse-riding safari, scenic flight or sunset cruise? We include a visit to the impressive ‘Falls’ plunging between the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe, before leaving the area.

DAYS 17 - 22: Chobe National Park, Botswana, Kruger National Park

From Livingstone we cross into Botswana to the town of Kasane near Chobe National Park. Here you may like to enjoy an afternoon on the Chobe River on a relaxing cruise. We move south, via Nata and Francistown to South Africa and the famous Kruger National Park. Here you will have a final opportunity to see the ‘Big Five’ in South Africa’s largest and best known wildlife area. Finally, we travel via the Mpumalanga province to Johannesburg where the tour ends.

NB Day 16 - 22 may be operated in a smaller vehicle depending on group size
