There you will become an expert at ‘poling’ your mokoro (a dugout canoe) through the waterways. Heading North we visit Chobe National Park for a game viewing boat cruise. We arrive in Victoria Falls where the available activities are limitless. Board the truck for your two day transit to Johannesburg and the start of your Kruger tour.

Our return journey to Johannesburg takes us via the scenic Panorama Route where we will visit God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels and Blyde River Canyon. Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and it is a must see on everyone’s travel itinerary, and the viewpoints overlooking the Blyde River and Klein Drakensberg escarpment won?t disappoint.
