12 days Cape Town, Kruger National Park, Victoria Falls

Flying into Cape Town is a magical feeling. Table Mountain looms above the fascinating city that is surrounded by an incredible coastline and gorgeous scenery. After exploring the city and its surrounding areas you fly up to the Greater Kruger ecosystem for a 'big 5' safari experience in one of the conservancies that surround the National Park. You then fly from the Kruger region directly to Victoria Falls which, in our opinion, is the most spectacular natural wonder on the planet. Whether you want to stroll in the rainforest that surround the Falls, or take on white water rafting down the rapids that form its gorge, you are certain to love your experience.

Victoria Falls is a true bucket list destination. The mighty Zambezi river plummets 100m down into a series of mighty gorges. This is a geological masterpiece and a sign of what nature is capable of producing. The falls are named 'the smoke that thunders' by the Tonga tribe due to the spray that is produced from such a huge amount of water and flanked by a lush rainforest as well as some brilliant national parks. Wildlife is abundant in the area; expect to see raptors soaring above the gorges, hippo, elephant, crocodiles in the river and if your really lucky clawless otters on the riverbanks.
