Africa's "Big Five"


An African adventure all its own... Botswana

Tracking wildlife on a game drive through Moremi Game Reserve… embarking on safaris through and above the waterways of the Okavango Delta by motorboat, dugout canoe and helicopter… joining Zu/’hoasi San Bushmen for a safari on foot… meeting the Xaxaba people in their traditional village… venturing out across the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on the edge of the Kalahari Desert aboard an ATV… hanging out with (and perhaps under) a family of meerkats… just another day in Botswana…

South Africa

Elegant adventures in South Africa

Sampling the fruit of the vine in the Cape Winelands… viewing Cape Town and its waterfront from the top of Table Mountain… standing at the Cape of Good Hope… setting off on safari through the lowveldt in Kruger National Park… munching on traditional braai barbecue… witnessing the history of apartheid in Soweto… enjoying high tea overlooking Victoria Falls… meeting elephants at a sanctuary… welcome to South Africa…


Undiscovered wonders in Zambia

The elegance of a bygone era of travel at a colonial-style hotel on the Zambezi River named for “Dr. Livingstone, I presume”… a romantic ride through the bushveld aboard a vintage 1920s steam train, complete with restored Pullman lounge and dining cars, in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park … a walk through a rhino sanctuary to “visit” these endangered animals… a luncheon cruise on the Zambezi… the sheer power of “The Smoke That Thunders” – Victoria Falls. All this and more to explore with Tauck in Zambia..
