Splendors of South Africa & Victoria Falls with Chobe River Cruise
The glorious panoramas from Cape Town’s Table Mountain and the candy-hued streets of the Bo-Kaap neighborhood set the stage for the sweet sights to come. Six open-air private game reserve drives near Kruger National Park offer a fascinating glimpse of up to 42 mammal species and 350 bird species. Keep your eyes peeled for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo—before branching out in Johannesburg. Here, you’ll explore Soweto, the city’s largest township, including the former home of Nelson Mandela and the significant sites of the anti-apartheid movement. Your South Africa vacation crescendos at Victoria Falls, called Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) on the Zambezi River. Twice the height of Niagara Falls, this breathtaking waterfall spanning the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia offers twice the photo ops.
Treat yourself to the royal treatment to end your Africa adventure. A relaxing 3-night Chobe River cruise aboard the Chobe Princess houseboat is just the ticket. This intimate safari experience offers exclusivity and a unique glimpse at wildlife and local village life. Friendly staff are always available and hearty meals ensure you have the energy to make the most of each day. Unwind in your spacious cabin with panoramic windows or on the viewing deck for a dip in the plunge pool for continued opportunities for outstanding views. You’ll feel at one with nature throughout your cruise!
