Zambia

Zambia gives one a taste of the essence of Africa's beautiful, unpredictable, unspoiled vibrancy and color. The landscapes are dramatic and interspersed with the life-giving waters. There are plains, forests, rivers, lakes, and abundant wildlife. All of these make Zambia an unforgettable destination. In Zambia, you will visit Victoria Falls. Roughly 1200 kilometers (750 miles) long, two and a half million gallons of water fall over a 300-foot drop in a matter of seconds and makes a continuous falling curtain of water. A path leads alongside this gorge to provide viewpoint after viewpoint of this breathtaking splendor.

Namibia

Namibia has endless horizons and huge untamed wilderness areas. It has the oldest desert in the world, a magnificent coastline and one of the greatest game parks. Etosha National Park has incredible waterholes where the animals migrate and make the game viewing excellent.

Botswana

Botswana is an untamed wilderness of Africa. The country has a very small population and the government has designated nearly 17% of the country to National Parks and a further 20% to protected wilderness areas. The world famous Okavango Delta is one of the last great wetlands in the world and all of these factors combination ensures that Botswana has s game, birdlife, and incredible floral kingdoms.

    "We had the best time really. All the pre-holiday excitement was all worth it. We did the extra activities you recommended: helicopter flight over the delta and the Chobe game drive. They were both awesome! We also did the Falls rafting and a bungee. The rafting was an experience! We’d both been before in New Zealand but this was by far the most exciting and certainly the most dangerous. The rest, however, was a lot of fun! Sunways were excellent and we had great guides in Arthur and Adolf. Thank you for helping us put together a fantastic holiday to remember. We would love to come back and see Kenya / Tanzania sometime."

    "We spent 10 days in the Serengeti and 4 days in Zanzibar. It was an amazing trip and no hiccups. The package was well put together and the guide in the Serengeti was excellent. Gelle helped build the trip and was very knowledgeable in what we should see and where to stay. Enock, our driver-guide in the Serengeti was excellent, friendly, and very knowledgeable. All in all, a wonderful experience."
