1. Tag: Pretoria - Hazyview - Krüger Nationalpark

From Pretoria - South Africa’s administrative city - we travel via the panoramic region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to South Africa’s famed national park – Kruger. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the famed ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees.
This evening we enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire.

Fahrzeit: ca. 7 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 390 km

Unterkunft: Numbi Camp, Hazyview

Verpflegung: 1x Abendessen

2. Tag: Hazyview - Krüger Nationalpark

Waking early, we board our 4x4 game viewing vehicles with a resident guide for an intense but rewarding day in Kruger National Park. The impressive atmosphere of the park enables you to see why it is held in such high esteem amongst visitors from all over the world. We game drive in the morning and afternoon in search for the abundance of wildlife including the ‘Big 5’ – Rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard and lion together with a high density of other mammals and diverse bird species such as eagles, hornbills, vultures and bee eaters. We break during the middle of the day to enjoy the peace of the rest camp and wait out the hottest part of the day (when wildlife is usually less active). We then continue our game drive through the park exiting in the late afternoon and continue to our accommodation for the night.

Optional Activities:
Kruger Night Game Drive USD75

Unterkunft: Numbi Camp, Hazyview

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

3. Tag: Hazyview, Greater Kruger - Tshipise, South Africa

Leaving Greater Kruger, we travel north through South Africa’s lush countryside to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province. Our campsite is located at Forever Resorts at the foot of one of Limpopo’s rolling koppies set adjacent the Honnet Nature Reserve. There are hot springs in the resort offering a variety of swimming pools to enjoy. The area is surrounded by dense woodland comprising of Mopani, Red Bushwillow, Jakkalsbessie trees – and the third largest Baobab tree in South Africa.

Fahrzeit: ca. 7 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 400 km

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

4. Tag: Tshipise - Bulawayo, Simbabwe

Distance travelled: 400 km
Approx driving time: 10 Hours

After a refreshing night’s sleep we make our way across the border to Zimbabwe and on to Bulawayo, a pleasant city with broad tree lined avenues and wide open spaces. Our campsite is located 5 km outside Bulawayo and surrounded by grassy trees and fishponds. The area is revered as a historical, geological and natural heritage site which we will have a chance to explore fully tomorrow.

5. Tag: Matobo Nationalpark

Matobo National Park is located a short distance outside Bulawayo and knowledgeable guides will take us to this very impressive park. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings and the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people here. The reserve has the largest concentration of Black and White Rhino in Africa and, provided conditions are right, our guides will lead us on foot to some of the more concealed places in search of these magnificent animals. The park also has the densest population of leopard and black eagle in the world and we keep our eyes peeled high and low for these creatures. The hills are also home to the grave site of Cecil John Rhodes who chose this as his burial place owing to the intense natural beauty and startling views from the hills. His grave can be visited at World’s View - a place of continual debate owing to his involvement in claiming the land and its people for Queen & Country in colonial times.

Optional Activities:
Upgrade to full day tour including historical tour and village Tour USD45

Unterkunft: Burke's Paradise, Bulawayo

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

6. Tag: Bulawayo - Livingstone, Zambia

Moving on from Bulawayo we continue north, and pass through the town of Victoria Falls, before crossing the border into Zambia, we travel the short distance to the Waterfront Resort campsite a few kilometres from Livingstone. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, the Waterfront has a restaurant and small deck/terrace overlooking the river and is a base and booking point for the numerous optional activities available in the area. Staff will give a full briefing on what can be booked (typically including rafting, canoeing, bungee, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights and river cruises). Choose your activity at leisure, if time allows or else simply relax and enjoy the mighty Zambezi as it flows past your vantage point.

But whatever you do, don’t leave Africa without seeing the Victoria Falls themselves! A visit to the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park is included in your tour – be sure not to miss it - at over a mile wide and some 100 metres deep the Falls at high water form the largest curtain of falling water in the world with spray visible from 20 kilometres away (hence the local name Mosi Oa Tunya, or ‘Smoke that Thunders’). At low water the Zambezi dries so much that it is possible to walk out onto the river bed itself!

N.B: For the sake of practicality, meals in Livingstone/Victoria Falls area are restricted to breakfasts. This allows you to enjoy the optional activities without having to be back with the group at mealtimes. The Waterfront camp restaurant overlooks the Zambezi River and offers a selection of simple and reasonably priced meals and snacks throughout the day (allow US$15-$30 per meal). Relax and enjoy at your own leisure, or alternatively, take a taxi into Livingstone to try local fare.

9. Tag: Livingstone - Lusaka

Relaxed and revitalized from the wonderful stay in Livingstone, we head through lush country and small villages to Lusaka, Zambia’s Capital city. Lusaka is Southern Africa’s fastest growing city with approx 1.7 million people and is located on the southern plateau at an elevation of 1300m with four main highways running north, south, east and west to different parts of Africa. This city is the commercial hub as well as the centre for the government. Our campsite for the evening is set in a tranquil and relaxing setting on a farm.

Fahrzeit: ca. 9 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 450 km

Unterkunft: Eureka Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

10. Tag: Lusaka - South Luangwa Nationalpark

We leave early and take the Great Eastern Road through lush countryside and small villages, crossing the Luangwa River to the South Luangwa National Park, which is known to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and its oxbow lagoons, is among the most intense in Africa. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species inhabiting the area. Hippo’s, elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffe with many other species flourish in the 20,000 sq miles of savannah woodland watered by this 500 mile–long river. The river itself is the most intact and unaltered major river system in Africa and covers 9059 km2. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness, ranging from; dry, bare bushveld in the winter, to lush green lands in the summer months. On arrival we set up camp and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy the many optional activities from walking safaris and village walks.

Driving times vary dependent on the number of stops en route. While we try to get to the camp in daylight, today is a long day on the road and we may arrive in the early evening.

Fahrzeit: ca. 12 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 600 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz beim Wildlife Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

Unterkunft: Campingplatz Wildlife Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

12. Tag: South Luangwa Nationalpark - Kande Beach, Malawi

Leaving Zambia behind, we cross the border to Malawi. Please be patient as the officials process the group’s visas as this may take some time to complete. Lake Malawi formerly ‘Lake Nyasa’, covers almost a fifth of the country’s area and provides the source of livelihood for many of the Malawian people. Fishermen, fish traders, canoe and net makers all ply their trade, and a common sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato, (dugout canoe made from hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the lake at the break of day or with lanterns by night
The lake also has the highest number of endemic freshwater fish species of any in the world and attracts divers globally to seek out the many colourful Cichlid species. We arrive at camp on the lake’s shore in the afternoon and have the rest of the day to swim and explore the beach and surrounding area.

NB: Although it is our intention to adhere to the campsites described, a certain amount of flexibility is built into our time in Malawi and the crew may make alterations to the published itinerary. Please therefore treat the Malawi section of the dossier as a guideline only.

Fahrzeit: ca. 8 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 420 km

Unterkunft: Kande Beach Camp, Kande

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

13. Tag: Kande Beach

Today you’ll have some free time to try some of the water sports available including diving and snorkelling, take a horse ride along the beach or simply relax and enjoy the warm fresh waters of Lake Malawi.

The surrounding hills are home to the Livingstonia Mission where David Livingstone worked from for a time while staying in Malawi. The views from here are simply magnificent and well worth the effort of hiking to. For those staying at the campsite, there is a local craft market where you can enjoy learning the ins and outs of woodcarving your own souvenir, or learn to play the game of Bao, haggle for some souvenirs or enjoy a relaxing day admiring the shimmering waters on the beach.

Optional Activities:
Livingstonia Day Hike USD10

Unterkunft: Chitimba Beach Camp, Chitimba

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

16. Tag: Chitimba Beach - Iringa, Tansania

Leaving Chitimba Beach, we travel the short distance north to cross the border into Tanzania. We steadily climb in altitude through Tanzania’s Southern Highlands all the way to Kisolanza Farm House. This farm is at an altitude of 1600m ensuring a pleasant fresh climate in one of the most scenic areas of Tanzania. Home to the Ghaui family for over 70 years, Kisolanza remains a working farm providing organic meat (beef, lamb and chicken) and vegetables to the surrounding markets as well as further afield in Dar es Salaam.

Fahrzeit: ca. 11 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 550 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz bei der Kisolanza Farm

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

17. Tag: Iringa - Mikumi Nationalpark

Leaving the Southern Highlands, we make our way east to Mikumi National Park. Our campsite is located a short stone’s throw from the park and we enjoy sundowners at the local bar/ restaurant followed by the evening around the open fire under the blanket of stars.
If time allows we can go on an optional game drive in the afternoon to explore the magnificent park – Tanzania’s 5th largest. Expect to see Elephant, hippo, crocodiles, antelope and with some luck some buffalo or lion.

Optional Activities:
Mikumi Game Dive USD150

Fahrzeit: ca. 5 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 200 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz bei der Tan-Swiss Lodge

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

18. Tag: Mikumi Nationalpark - Dar es Salaam

We continue towards the Indian Ocean coast and the port city of Dar es Salaam (‘Haven of Peace’). This route runs through the Mikumi National Park and we may, with luck, spot forest elephant or giraffe feeding near the side of the road. ‘Dar’ is Tanzania’s hub of commerce and industry – a hot, humid and bustling seaport city of high rises, colourful markets and Arab influenced architecture on the coast accessing one of the most important sea routes on earth (with an interesting history too). To a majority of travellers, this city is the port of call to the more exotic Zanzibar and the remaining of the Archipelago islands. We set up camp at our campsite on the beach just outside of the city centre, usually having time to browse curio markets - best known for ebony wood - and prepare for our trip to Zanzibar.

Fahrzeit: ca. 8 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 300 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz beim Kipepeo Beach Village

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

19. Tag: Dar es Salaam - Sansibar

Evocative and exotic, Zanzibar conjures up images of idyllic, sandy, palm fringe beaches; romantic winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests. You will find all of these here - and an intriguing history. Zanzibar was the base of the great 19th century explorers such as John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and David Livingstone and once was a major trading centre of spices. Indeed the spice trade is centuries old: Zanzibaris have traded with the people of the Arabian peninsula for generations, plying the ocean in simple dhow sailboats relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town This influence can be seen right along the Eastern coast – the Swahili language itself is a result of the mixing of Arab and African languages and cultures over many centuries.

Zanzibar's other history is not romantic. The island was also a staging post for slaves bought from the African interior being held before shipping to slave owners in the Middle East. You can still see the places where these men and woman were held - and even a short visit is enough to convey the appalling conditions they had to endure.

Our time on the island over the next 4 nights is not structured and your time is at leisure. Perhaps the best way to see Stone Town is on foot: explore the bazaars for old maritime trinkets, cloths, wooden carvings, visit mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways of the old town. Spices are grown in plantations nearby and you can take day tours to visit some and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents experienced. If it’s white sand, sparkling ocean and hot sun you prefer – head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try snorkelling and diving, indulge in some sumptuous seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book.

Note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic tourist class accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar are included in the tour price, but for the sake of flexibility other meals are left for your own account. Typically, we spend one night in Stone Town and the next three nights in the north of the island at one of the beaches. Your tour leader will be available to assist if you if you have any questions or need activities arranged.

Please note that some group members may be starting their tour in Dar es Salaam today.

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

23. Tag: Sansibar - Dar es Salaam

Unterkunft: Campingplatz beim Kipepeo Beach Village

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

24. Tag: Dar es Salaam - Marangu

Departing early from Dar es Salaam, we head north past the Usambara and Pare Mountains in the Eastern Arc Mountain Range to Marangu, nestled at the base of the famed Kilimanjaro. The camp takes its name from the surrounding area. "Marangu" means "full of water" in the local Chagga language, and the lush green surroundings demonstrate the truth of this. If weather is clear we will gain a view of the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain (5.895 m).

Fahrzeit: ca. 11 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 570 km

Unterkunft: Marangu Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

25. Tag: Marangu - Arusha

We drive past the town of Moshi and eventually reach Arusha; a city situated exactly mid-way between Cape Town and Cairo. This is Tanzania’s ‘safari capital’, a city of some 2 million people, a bustling melting pot of markets, vehicles and people – all nestling in the shadow of the brooding Mt Meru (4556 m). With time to explore town we head out to our camp just outside the city at the edge of the Masai plains.

This afternoon we enjoy a walk to one of the local Masai villages, a local school and clinic, a small but highly interesting Masai museum, and the snake enclosure at the Meserani Snake Park.
It is from here that we prepare for our two night/three day excursion to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

Optional Activities:
Camel Ride USD5
Guided Walk USD7

Fahrzeit: ca. 2.5 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 120 km

Unterkunft: Meserani Snake Park, Arusha

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

26. Tag: Arusha - Serengeti Nationalpark

This morning we transfer to smaller more ‘game park friendly’ vehicles and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo (‘mosquito creek’) and enter the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. We pass into the park and drive around the ‘Crater’s rim and down onto the Serengeti plains. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry, this is home to an enormous variety of grazing animals, predators, and birdlife. Flatter and larger than the Masai Mara the Serengeti is simply huge - indeed the name derives from the Masai word Siringitu – ‘the place where the land moves on forever’. We game drive to our designated (but unfenced) campsite for the evening where lion and hyena roam nearby for an unforgettable experience.

Fahrstrecke: ca. 250 km

Unterkunft: Buschcamp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

27. Tag: Ngorongoro Krater

We drive out of the plains, game driving en route, and after lunch ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater. We spend the night camping on the rim (you may need a jacket; it can be cold at night due to the high altitude here), where wildlife also roams free. At 326 square kilometres in area the Ngorongoro is Africa’s largest intact caldera and a World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim (2400 metres above sea level) is spectacular, the site from the Crater floor (some 600 metres below) is equally enjoyable.

Unterkunft: Simba Campsite, Ngorongoro Region

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

28. Tag: Ngorongoro Krater - Arusha

We wake early and descend the steep dirt road of the Ngorongoro Crater for a morning of game driving in this spectacular wildlife haven. All of the major mammals are present except giraffe (which cannot manage the steep slopes leading down onto the Crater floor). After our game drive we ascend to our campsite on the rim for a final view over the Ngorongoro Crater, pack up our camp and have lunch before retracing our steps to Arusha and our campsite at the Meserani Snake Park where we will overnight.

Fahrstrecke: ca. 250 km

Unterkunft: Meserani Snake Park, Arusha
