Wildlife Viewing, White Water Rafting, Canoeing, Hiking WILD WATER, WILDLIFE & REMOTE TRAILS - Zimbabwe, Zambia
Wildlife Viewing, White Water Rafting, Canoeing, Hiking
16 days       2 - 6 guests

  • raft the Zambezi River, these class IV - V rapids are among the most exciting in the world
  • track elephants, lions, leopards, cheetah, giraffe, zebra and more.
  • canoe the Zambezi to see elephant herds and hippopotamus.
Zimbabwe is relatively unvisited compared to traditional African destinations. This means we are able to see a pride of lions on our own without a dozen other groups converging on the same spot. We will walk and drive trails to track the big game, raft the world-class Zambezi river for 3 days, and canoe the placid sections of the same river to get close to elephants and hippo's. We will have a chance to see Victoria Falls, larger and more impressive than Niagara and Iguazu combined. For the adventurous there will even be a chance to go bungee jumping off the highest platform jump in the world. This is an active African Safari that combines intense wildlife experiences with an adrenaline rush!

THIRSTLAND JOURNEY - Namibia Off the Beaten Path
Namibia

Southern Africa Desert Adventure, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe

  • Walk on the towering dunes of the Namib Desert
  • Explore arid reaches of Damaraland
  • Safari in the game rich Etosha National Park

Namibia is among the most extraordinary places in Africa and the centerpiece of this multi-country adventure. The country takes its name from a 130 million year old desert that uniquely harbors elephant, rhinoceros, lion and giraffe. This awesome desert houses the world's highest sand dunes. Namibia's essence lies in the vastness of her landscape, her geological prodigies, and the diversity of her fauna.

In addition to exploring Namibia's awe-inspiring dunes, we will spend time in the "moonscape" like environment of Swakopmund, see the bushman rock engravings of Damaraland and finally spend time viewing game in Etosha National Park. Etosha is a lush park with numerous waterholes that attract an incredible variety of African wildlife (lion, elephant, rhino, zebra, wildebeest, and more).

The towering dunes of the Namib Desert, the arid reaches of Damaraland and the game rich Etosha National Park. These images combine with the scenic beauty and cultural diversity of Namibia to make this a truly unforgettable journey. Itinerary Highlights
