Foreign Travel Advice

A wonderful trip that connects Zanzibar and the Tanzanian Swahili Coast with the bustling city of Cape Town. This trip offers some of Africa's finest beaches from the white sands of Zanzibar, through to the shores of the beautiful Lake Malawi.

We visit some of Africa's best wildlife parks, such as South Luangwa, Chobe, Hwange and Etosha National Parks. But the two wildlife experiences, you will never forget, will be canoeing down through the Lower Zambezi region and walking with White Rhinos in Matobo National Park.

If you want spectacular scenery then this trip tops the bill and nowhere shows this more than the wonderful dune scapes of Namibia's Namib Desert and the vastness of the Fish River Canyon. If you are after wilderness, none is better that Botswana's incomparable Okavango Delta, which we will explore by dugout canoe. Finally, this journey has the greatest icon of them all, the incomparable Victoria Falls.

Great widlife but with the bonus of good campsites and tourism infrastructure, and so the lifestyle is pretty easy. Roads are generally good but we do get you away from the tourist trail and off the beaten track. Expect to be pushed outside your comfort zone occasionally.

Day 1 - Zanzibar (28th June 2021)

Border Information: If joining at Zanzibar, you will most likely enter Tanzania from Zanzibar Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (IATA code: ZNZ).

There will be an informal meet-and-greet and orientation of Stone Town with our local Zanzibar guide at 6:00pm - please meet at the reception of the joining hotel at this time if you wish to take part in this orientation. Please note that you will not usually meet your regular crew tonight, as they will be arriving in Dar es Salaam this evening and will travel to Zanzibar with members of their previous group tomorrow.

Please note that the first 4 days of this section overlap with our "YND - Nairobi to Zanzibar" trip, so some of the group that come to Zanzibar will leave before we take the ferry to Dar es Salaam. This is because Zanzibar is part of both trips, so it means customers going all the way through do not follow our Zanzibar itinerary twice!
