The Pride of South Africa

Admire the roots of Africa

Travel the breadth of southern Africa, where nature’s spectacle is at its most dramatic; history is rich; culture is diverse; and “Big Five” game viewing in pristine natural habitats is extraordinary. Follow Nelson Mandela’s long road to freedom in South Africa, “the rainbow nation.” A highlight of your journey is the three-night river safari aboard the m.s. Zambezi Queen on Namibia’s legendary Chobe River.

Enjoy naturalist-guided excursions by small watercraft, a unique alternative to traditional land safaris. Your itinerary also includes the classic land safari with superb game viewing aboard four-wheel-drive safari vehicles. Your safari will take place in seldom-visited Botswana, a haven for nearly all of the southern African mammal species. Visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites, including one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders, the incomparable Victoria Falls.
