Featuring Chobe River Safari

Aboard the exclusively chartered Five-Star m.s. Zambezi Queen.

Travel with us on this incredible journey to experience the wonders of four nations of southern Africa, where nature’s spectacle is at its most dramatic, history is rich, culture is diverse and the “Big Five” game viewing in pristine natural habitats is extraordinary. Witness the remarkable achievements of the young nations of Namibia and Botswana, unique in their way of life and home to one of the densest game populations on the planet. Walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela in South Africa, and behold the majestic natural beauty of Zimbabwe’s incomparable Victoria Falls—one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Few experiences can match this exclusive, in-depth itinerary and exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel the breadth of southern Africa. On the legendary Chobe River in Namibia, enjoy a three-night river safari featuring naturalist-guided excursions by small watercraft, a fantastic perspective from which to observe the magnificent wildlife gathering along the Chobe’s shores, with accommodations aboard the exclusively chartered Five-Star m.s. Zambezi Queen, featuring only 14 beautifully appointed Staterooms, each with a private balcony. During your classic land safari aboard four-wheel-drive vehicles, enjoy superb game viewing in seldom-visited Botswana, a sanctuary for nearly all of the southern African mammal species.

Follow Mandela’s long road to freedom from Soweto to Robben Island, on to Johannesburg and the presidency of South Africa, “the rainbow nation.” Hear the unique insights of our special guest speaker, founder of the Liliesleaf Farm Trust. Savor glorious Cape Town, poised dramatically between Table Mountain and the sparkling waters of Table Bay.
