Sounds of Africa + Cape Town

15 Day Chobe - Kruger Safaris - Vic Falls - Cape Town

The beat of drumming and dancing, the sounds of wildlife and tranquility of nature in Africa is Calling.

  • Explore the Chobe National Park with a river cruise and game drive. It is the second largest National Park in Botswana and covers over 15 566 square kilometers. It has one of the greatest concentrations of game found on the African continent and is famous for the number of elephants roaming in the reserve. The Chobe River flows lazily through the Caprivi flood plains and provides a haven for huge herds of elephants, zebras, wildebeest, and impala which are closely followed by predators.
  • Discover Victoria Falls “Mosi- ao – Tunya” or the “smoke that thunders” is a must-see spectacle so incredible that it takes one’s breath away. End your tour of the Falls with “The flight of the Angels”, a scenic helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls.
  • Adventure into the Kruger National Park on Guided Safari Game Drives to experience the raw power and roar of the lion, the sheer bulk and force of the rhino, the delicacy and grace of the leopard, the supreme confidence of a herd of elephants and the adrenalin racing charge of the African buffalo.
  • The scenic tours in Cape Town with its unmatched natural beauty, amazing beaches, wonderful hospitality, and cultural diversity makes Cape Town one of the world’s greatest tourist destinations. Cape Town is cradled by the natural presence of Table Mountain (One of the Seven Wonders of the World) and forms a backdrop to a land so lovely that it appears to be a fantasy landscape. The tour of Table Mountain and Cape Peninsula will ensure you see the beauty of the wonderful landscape.
