Ultimate Southern Africa
Join Peregrine on the Southern Africa journey – from Victoria Falls all the way down to Port Elizabeth. Discover not only that famous world wonder, the ‘Smoke That Thunders’, but also the great salt pans, sand dunes, grasslands, canyons, rivers, mountains, beaches, vineyards and wildlife that lie beyond. The waterholes of Chobe National Park in Botswana offer outstanding wildlife-viewing, while photographers and nature lovers alike will find a rare treat in the sand dunes and petrified forest of Namibia. However, it’s the verdant winelands and coastal scenery down south that have the final say on this comprehensive journey, adding a touch of class to an itinerary brimming with highlights and hidden surprises. Seasoned travellers in search of an all-encompassing Southern Africa odyssey need look no further.
