Sophisticated city and Southern Africa safari to Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta

If the idea of two weeks on safari sounds overwhelming, you have other options. Such as this Southern Africa safari highlights itinerary, which alternates time in the bush with Cape Town, South Africa’s scenic coastal city, and Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls, where adventure sports abound. 

When you do hit the bush it will be style, at a secluded property on a private game reserve next to the Kruger National Park, and a camp in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, where water-based activities, guided walks, and game drives are the order of the day.
