We will have a more complete description of this new 2020 tour here soon. In the meantime, below is a brief outline of this 16-day itinerary.

This exciting three-country adventure developed by popular guide Joe Grosel begins in Johannesburg, South Africa. From there we'll travel first to Kruger NP for three nights and some fabulous birding and game viewing, with all the iconic large African savanna birds (Ostrich, Kori Bustard, Secretary-bird, Ground-Hornbill, etc). We'll move next to the Thornybush Private Game Reserve (part of the Greater Kruger Conservancy), where we'll stay in a lovely private lodge, with additional birding and big-game opportunities. The 'Panorama Route' will then take us through magnificent mountain scenery including the Blyde River Canyon en route to another lovely bush lodge.

Concluding our time in South Africa, we'll fly back to Johannesburg to catch a connecting flight to Livingstone, Zambia, where we'll check into our luxury hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River before an afternoon birding and scenic boat cruise. We'll spend the next morning at Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, then transfer to a beautiful lodge on an island in the Zambezi River for an idyllic birding experience, including a 'sundowner' cruise on the Zambezi.

Wrapping up our time in Zambia, we'll continue to the Kasane area of northern Botswana, gateway to Chobe National Park, where we'll be based in a gorgeous riverside lodge overlooking the Chobe River floodplain. Our time in Chobe will include a morning game and birding drive and an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River -- rated by many as one of the best wildlife experiences in Africa. We'll conclude our tour with a flight back to Johannesburg for international connections homeward.
