Delve Deep: South Africa & Zimbabwe (Safari)
Itinerary / more information
Day 1 - Johannesburg (South Africa)
Yep. You’ve just landed in Africa. Welkom to Johannesburg! Say ‘howzit?’ to your fellow explorers. Then: we’ll kick things off with our first group dinner. Ready for the best damn week of your life? Let’s DO this.
Day 2 - Johannesburg – Kruger National Park
Start practising your Hakuna Matata – we’re up bright and early this morning to make our way to the world-famous Kruger National Park. Once we’ve hopped off the truck, there’s a DElish lunch waiting for us amid the plains of the African bush. Then, it's ACTUALLY happening: our first taste of safari awaits on an included 4x4 game drive. Oh hey, Simba! Tonight, toast to a spine-tingling sunset and soak up all those nature vibes. You know those ‘pinch yourself’ moments people talk about? This is one of them.
Day 3 - Kruger National Park
Rise and shine, adventurers! Dig into breakfast and make sure your camera's charged – we’ve got a full day of 4X4 driving to get on board with. Comin’ atcha with the stats: this place is home to 500 species of birds, 148 mammals and a sh*t-ton of reptiles. Excitement levels: 11/10. Keep your eyes peeled as our eagle-eyed guide helps us spot the legendary Big Five. We’re talking buffalo grazing on savannahs, rhinos frolicking in the mud, lions on their afternoon hunt and elephants getting their bubble bath on. Tonight, we’ll tuck into a group din back at the camp. Convo starter: which Big Five animal would you wanna be, and why? No judgement here...
Day 4 - Kruger National Park – Tshipise
You wanted to delve deeper, right? That’s why we’ve sorted a morning bush walk through Kruger with a fundi – aka a wilderness expert. Get ready to admire Mother Nature’s mad skills. And then? Next stop: Tshipise. Think giant baobab trees and rustic vibes galore. Here the afternoon’s yours to chill at the accom or quiz your Trip Leader on alllll the weird nature facts. Tonight = more snacking, stargazing and sweet AF moments. Lekker.
Day 5 - Tshipise – Matobo National Park (Zimbabwe)
Tums full after another group brekkie, this morning we’re heading for Zimbabwe! Once known for its political violence and economic instability, this nation has rebuilt itself into a buzzing tourist destination filled with natural wonders and out-of-this-world landscapes. When we’ve got all the formalities over with at the border post, we’ll make a beeline for Matobo National Park – where super-dramatic rock formations and even MORE incredible creatures await. Tonight, we’ll crack open a cold one as the sun sets over the rolling savannahs. This is livin’.
Day 6 - Matobo National Park
Slurp up your coffee and get ready for another epic game drive through Matobo National Park. It's time for the best game of ‘I spy’ you’ve ever had spotting black and white rhinos, zebras, wildebeest and giraffe. Then: check out the massive rock formations of the Matobo Hills. Seriously – it looks like a giant’s been playing Jenga up here. And FYI, humans have been drawing graffiti on these rocks way before Banksy made it cool (since the Stone Age, in fact). This afternoon we’ll delve deeper into the park with a guided trail walk, before swapping stories around the campfire. Hear that? It’s the sound of the wild lulling you to sleep tonight. This is as authentic as it gets.
Day 7 - Matobo National Park – Victoria Falls
Play it cool: today we’re ticking off one of the Seven Wonders of the World. That’s right folks, we’re headed to the magnificent Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park – aka home of Victoria Falls. A place where wilderness, adventure and culture are all tied up in one gobsmacking, crazy-beautiful parcel. After we make camp, we’ll head out on an included tour of the park to see why the falls are called ‘the smoke that thunders’. Later, opt for a cruise of the Zambezi River for all the sunset views, or dance to the beat of your own drum at a traditional Boma drumming show. And tonight? Gather round for one final group dinner. WHAT a trip it’s been.
Day 8 - Victoria Falls
So... that happened. A week’s worth of UNbelievable African adventures = completed. It may be our last day but there’s still time to get your adrenaline pumping with some epic optionals. We’re talking whitewater rafting, gorge swimming, canoeing and zip-lining. Or go all out with a helicopter flight over the falls. Why the hell not?
