Dream come true

for nature and safari lovers

If you’re a wildlife or animal lover, going on this expedition through Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi & Tanzania will be a dream come true. You’re getting to experience what it’s like to see amazing creatures like rhinos, lions, wildebeests, hyenas, buffalos, cheetahs, leopards, hippos, giraffes, crocodiles, many different sort of birds and animals like aardvarks and bush babies yourself.

In short, this is a true wilderness expedition of outstanding beauty at every turn. And believe us, Africa’s desert skies are legendary! You’ll experience that yourself while sleeping under a blanket of a million stars in your own home away from home.

What can you expect?

This adventurous expedition starts in Maun (Botswana), from where we soon cross the border into Zimbabwe. Through Hwanhge Park we drive towards the most impressive waterfall in the world: the Victoria Falls. Hwange National Park is the largest nature reserve in Zimbabwe and should be on the bucket list of every safari enthusiast. The Big Five and 100 other species of mammals roam the savanna grasslands and forests of Hwange Park – the park has the greatest diversity of mammals of any national park in the world. After this highlight, it is time for the next bucket list item. We’ll visit the town of Livingstone (named after the European who discovered the breathtaking Victoria Falls) and the Victoria Falls itself.

The expeditions continues through the National Parks of Zambia, where we have a super-unique night safari planned. Passing cotton and tobacco plantations, we then drive to the beach of Lake Malawi. Lake Malawi has clear and calm waters that allow up to 30 meters of visibility at the best times of the year (August to December) to discover the underwater world of Malawi’s famous cichlid fish.

After visiting Lake Malawi we go north through the Malawi highlands, overlooking the lake. From low-lying Malawi to high-altitude Tanzania, it changes from the tropical bananas and mangoes of Malawi to a rapidly changing environment of green fields and pine trees in Tanzania.Truly wonderful to see!

We visit the Ngorongoro Crater and of course we’ll make a stop on the Serengeti Plain. This famous plain is known for the great wildebeest migration: the largest animal migration in the world. Every year, more than 2 million animals (wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle) migrate in a clockwise direction across the ecosystems of the Serengeti (Tanzania) and the Masai Mara (Kenya). For us, too, the Masai Mara Nature Reserve is the next stop before setting sail for our final destination: the African metropolis of Nairobi.

Combine this expedition

with our Namibia expedition

Tip! There is also a Namibia & Botswana expedition (LEG 1) that precedes this expedition. Although you can book both expeditions separately, we recommend you participate in both to get the most out of your Africa experience. After the first expedition we can arrange the storage of your vehicle (price on request). The vehicle will then be stored in a secured area close to the finish of the Namibia & Botswana expedition. Since we are also starting this follow-up expedition there, you can get back on board in September and enjoy this expedition (LEG 2) without having to ship the truck again.
