12 Day Zimbabwe & Botswana Package

Explore Zimbabwe & Botswana as part of the 12 Day Zimbabwe & Botswana Package!

As part of the 12 Day Zimbabwe & Botswana Package, you will experience Zimbabwe, which is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, surrounded by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the south-west, Zambia to the north-west and Mozambique to the east and north. It is a nation of spectacular natural beauty, friendly people and rich culture. Travellers can look forward to visiting the world-renowned Victoria Falls – a popular tourist attraction and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Lake Kariba, with its game-rich shores and islands, is an idyllic safari spot from where glorious sunsets can be enjoyed. Hwange National Park is known for its huge herds of elephants, and a kayak trip down the Zambezi through Mana Pools National Park will appeal to the intrepid traveller, providing close encounters with crocodiles, hippos and a host of other wildlife.

Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, rugged hills and desert plains. The country’s primary tourist draw card is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta. These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host large prides of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where ancient rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.
