Victoria Falls to Cape Town small group holiday
From
£1,840
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Imposible to pick one thing as it was 3 weeks of wall to wall fantastic experinces. Etosha NP.... Game drives & waterhole at night/early morning! An elephant suddenly looming from nowhere in the dark & playing in the water. Rhino trekking....7 just 8metres away. Awesome! Elephant encounter right in front of our vehicle! 4 hippos 10 metres in front of us. Okavango mokoro canoes & camp & tracking and amazing helicopter flight over delta (own expense). Climbing dune 45 for... (more)Heather Gratland
Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
€2,290
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day was a different wonder but the two days wild camping at the Okavanga Delta were really special. Tips? Be prepared for very early starts and not much relaxing times. Local benefits? Yes, local guides were used in a number of locations but obviously driving such long distances is not exactly environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent.

Seeing Victoria Falls and all the wildlife in Africa was the most memorable part of the holiday...Fantastic. (more)Andrew Service
Overland tour of Kenya to Rwanda
From
£590
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the gorillas. Visiting the Pygmy village. Tips? Bring long trousers and T-shirts to cover up in Uganda. Pack lightly as there is laundry at the campsite. Local benefits? Yes, particularly when visiting the Pygmy village and the Kenyan school. My trip was the first 19 days of a longer 75 day tour. Whilst I did not go on this activity I know that later in the longer tour they go on a lion walk. I would urge you to research the company that runs this... (more)Genevieve Isherwood
South Africa and Swaziland safari
From
€1,850
excluding flights
A totally amazing and uplifting experience. A lot of fun, a lot of new things learnt, a new appreciation of another country and it's culture, and new friends made. (more)Cathy McCall
We went to some utterly stunning places, purely magical. The tour leaders couldn't have been better- humorous, brimming with knowledge and stories, fantastic chefs...I could go on (more)Christina Stephenson

excellent, but very tiring (more)Gerard Thompson
Kenya to Harare overland tour
From
£795
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Serengeti and Zanzibar. The animals in the wild life reserves were in abundance and Zanzibar is an interesting place with such a chequered history. The beaches in the north are lovely and the snorkeling near Prison Island fantastic. Tips? Take enough DET and new US dollars and don't expect to have much internet access. Also take a comfortable bed - either a thickish air matress or a camp bed as it's not that comfortable sleeping so close to the ground for that... (more)Stephanie Foster
Overland tour from Vic Falls to Cape Town
From
£645
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visits to the national parks - the wild life and the birds Tips? More suited to younger people Winter months - bring lots of warm clothes $ and SAR are all you need in currency Local benefits? Yes - I was pleased that the company focussed on using and supporting local communities Overall rating? 10 out of 10 (more)Deborah Davidson
East Africa adventure holiday, safari, gorillas & beach
From
£2,699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Gorilla Tracking was just outstanding. Many other highlights of the tour (camping in the Serengeti, visit of local villages, rafting the Nile) were also great. Tips? Prepare for long truck, bus and jeep rides, bring maybe a sleeping pillow or similar. Mattress is not necessary and a sleeping bag just for two nights, so don't bother to waste too much space for this. Hiking boots for the gorillas are a must. Don't miss out on the Pygmy village! Local benefits? Definitely... (more)Alessandra Hool
Ethiopia to Kenya overland truck tour
From
£1,208
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing off the beaten track places, learning about traditions first hand. Seeing great scenery and good wildlife in Kenya. Tips? Ethiopia is quite 'rugged' but beautiful and varied. Don't expect luxury but it is rewarding in terms of scenery, customs and friendly people. Kenya is more comfortable with good campsites, great wildlife and good food. Local benefits? Visiting National Parks obviously support's conservation. Otherwise not that much. Overall... (more)Liz Buckle
The Grand Southern Africa safari
From
£1,664
excluding flights
Flying over the Okavango Delta and fishing for Tigerfish on the Zambezi River were the most memorable... The one scheduled excursion that stands out to me was visiting the Namibian ranch of Mr. Bushman. He was so knowledgeable about science and natural history. (more)Craig Shafer
It was an excellent travel that I will remember for life, with great value. (more)Jeffrey Lee
Cape Town to Victoria Falls holiday in South Africa
From
£2,799
including UK flights
Memorable parts? For me the National Parks were always going to be the highlight and they didn't disappoint. Etosha and Chobe are so different from each other but both have lots of interesting animals. We saw a cheetah family with a fresh kill, several black rhino, more giraffe and elephants than you could ever hope for and a good number of hippos at Chobe too. We also had some very dramatic weather in the shape of two major thunderstorms, made all the more exciting/scary by the fact we... (more)Wendy Pountain
