Big Five in South Africa, iconic Victoria Falls, and Zambia's premier safari camp
This luxury Southern Africa safari itinerary takes in three quintessential destinations famed for epic landscapes and abundant game—all without skimping on style and luxury.
In South Africa, stay on a private concession in Greater Kruger, where day and night drives allow you to spot a range of wildlife, including the Big Five. From here, head to the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and choose from a range of activities ranging from sedate to adrenaline-fuelled. End your vacation at what's probably the best luxurious lodge in Zambia, where water-based activities are the order of the day here. In addition to boat trips, canoeing, and fishing, enjoy twice-daily game drives or a walking safari.
