61 Day Ultimate African Explorer
Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania & Malawi
This is a great 61 day, seven country safari includes Malawi, ‘The Heart of Africa’. Based on the 41 day Ultimate Safari combination (African Wildlife Breakaway) plus picturesque Malawi as your final destination. You will marvel at how large but also how diverse your almost two months of travelling Africa has covered. Beginning with a close encounter of the mighty Victoria Falls, you will enjoy a beautiful sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. Your first game drive will be in Chobe National Park, your first buzz of seeing varieties of wildlife in its natural habitat. You will enjoy both land based game drives and river game cruises throughout this safari; Caprivi Game Park, Okavango Delta and Etosha National Park through Namibia. Fly from Windhoek to the beautiful city of Cape Town to experience Africa’s South Africa. Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities will be a pleasant welcome for a spot of shopping, a ride by cable car up Table Mountain (weather permitting) before travelling the Garden Route. Journey via picturesque towns like Stellenbosch and spectacular coastal towns with mountainous backdrops, enjoy wine tasting at famous wine estates, Tsitsikamma National Park, Jeffery’s Bay the ‘home to the perfect wave’ and take a game drive through Addo Elephant National Reserve to witness the majestic animals in their own habitat. Farewell the south from Port Elizabeth, fly to Nairobi, hello East Africa and it’s time to …..experience the annual wildlife migrations in Kenya and Tanzania, travel across spectacular scenery in the ‘born free’ countryside of Shaba and Samburu National Park, the incredible Rift Valley will be a highlight to remember. Enjoy game drives throughout East Africa including Lake Nakuru National Park, Tsavo East while spotting incredible numbers of wildlife at the waterholes and grasslands of the impressive Ngorongoro Crater. The Maasai Mara National Park will be something to tick off your bucket list as is enjoying a traditional tribal dance performance. East Africa finishes with time to relax on the historic spice island of Zanzibar before flying to land locked country of Malawi. Malawi features wonderful scenery, fascinating parks and some of the poorest but friendliest people in Africa. Including visiting a tea plantation and the small village in which David Livingstone was born, you will view elephant, hippo, crocodile, sable and prolific bird life on the many game drives and boat cruises on this safari. Stay on the shores of Lake Malawi which is the southern end of the Rift Valley, cruise out to Bird Island, see the African Fish Eagle and visit a tropical fish farm. Game drives at South Luangwa National Park/Matjete Wildlife reserve are a different experience than in Kenya/Tanzania. Experience an evening game drive to view nocturnal animals. Travelling distances in Malawi are shorter than Kenya and Tanzania making a great combination for a longer safari. Wonderful experiences will be fondly remembered for years on this safari.
