1. Tag: Stone Town

Welcome to Zanzibar. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 2 pm where you'll meet your tour guide and travel group. Aside from this important meeting, there are no planned activities for the day and you are free to explore on your own. Filled with idyllic beaches, winding cobblestone alleyways and fragrant bazaars, Zanzibar has a varied and sometimes dark history. This is a place rooted in slavery and where Arabian sultans once lived. It's also know for its fruit exports. The sight of traditional dhows sailing along the coast evokes what the island must have been like in Livingstone's day. The old part of Zanzibar's main city, known as Stone Town, is an enticing mix of vibrant markets, shops, mosques, palaces and courtyards. And its best explored on foot. Take the time to explore its historic streets, then perhaps enjoy a drink from a bar overlooking the seafront as the sun is setting. A seafood curry at a local restaurant is also a great choice. Spend a night in Stone Town at a basic inn with double/twin-share rooms and access to Wi-Fi.

Special Information: Please note the Zanzibar portion of your itinerary may have more passengers than the maximum group size of 22 as we have a crossover of trips starting and finishing in Zanzibar.

Stone Town Tour - Dharajani Market, Joseph's Cathederal, Palace Museum, Forodhani Food Market - USD20

You will also have the opportunity to touch, smell and taste various spices, such as cinnamon, vanilla and ginger. Sample some teas made with these spices too.

Here there will also be the chance to spot other game (the park is home to klipspringers, leopards, warthogs and springhares among many others). while learning about the various local plant and trees, wild pear and paperbark among them. This impressive wildlife park is also the site of the grave of Cecil John Rhodes, the founder of Rhodesia and the De Beers diamond company.

18. Tag: Bulawayo - Victoria Falls

Depart Bulawayo and make the six-hour drive towards Victoria Falls. Stretching 1.6 kilometres wide and falling 108 metres into a narrow gorge below, the falls for which the area is named are truly a sight to behold. Although a visit to the falls themselves is optional, it is highly recommended. The entrance fee to the falls is not included in the price of this trip as groups that book ahead are required to tour the site with a local guide, and we feel that seeing these waterfalls for the first time should be an uninterrupted sensory experience. In the wet season, the spray created from this feat of nature can rise 400 metres and can often be seen from kilometres away. It's no wonder that the local name for Victoria Falls is Mosi oa Tunya, or the 'smoke that thunders'. Though dry season travellers should not despair! You’ll get an unobstructed view of the falls and the chance to see the islets in the river below. Your leader will take you to a local activity centre where a range of activities will be on offer. We have not risk assessed all activities and only those listed in our trip notes are recommended for safety reasons. It is against company policy for leaders to facilitate the booking of any activities that have not been risk assessed or do not adhere to our company’s Responsible Travel policy and ethos. This includes organising transport to and from these activities in our vehicles. If you are interested in the Optional Helicopter flight (12 minutes or 25 minutes) we endorse the following operator only: Zambezi Helicopter co CAA Zimbabwe. Tonight's campground is an ideal base, centrally located in the town of Victoria Falls. Upgrades and WiFi are available.

Special Information: You may notice businesses offering an optional 'Walk with the Lions' experience. We ask all Intrepid travellers to avoid this activity as it is contrary to our Responsible Travel policy. While wildlife viewing is a big part of many of our itineraries, we strive to only view animals in their natural habitats and to do so with the greatest level of respect. The lion walking industry directly contributes to the captive breeding and canned hunting of lions.

Optional Activities:
Victoria Falls entrance - USD35

Fahrzeit: ca. 6 Std.

Unterkunft: Camping

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen
