Wildlife, wilderness, and wow-worthy campouts makeup this 15-day exploration of South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. Hop aboard one of our overland adventure vehicles (OAV) while searching for the Big Five in Kruger National Park, check out Victoria Falls, and look for rhinos on-foot in Matobo National Park. Don’t let anything extra get between you and the expansive scenery – camp out, sing songs around the fire with locals, and travel by mokoro. With views this impressive the more time spent outside, the better.
