Day 7 - 8

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Rising early today, we enjoy a game drive through the park before making our way to Victoria Falls town. After the game drive we pack up and make our way to the Victoria Falls town, here we have some time to prepare our activities for the following day, before visiting the incredible Victoria Falls and experiencing the thunderous and powerful Zambezi. Majority of our group will spend the next day white water rafting (a thrill not to be missed!), however there are various alternatives offered by Victoria Falls, such as a walk with lions or a bungee jump from the bridge that merges Zimbabwe and Zambia.

At 1700 metres wide and 108 metres high, Victoria Falls is said to be the biggest falls in the world. According to popular beliefs, Scottish explorer David Livingstone was the very first European to stand witness to the mighty Victoria Falls and wrote: “It has never been seen before by European eyes, but scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” The local name of Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’, is used as the official name in Zambia.  Because of its enormous power and size, the Falls are embellished with countless mythologies. It is believed by the local Tonga people of Zambezi that a river god, Nyaminyami, lives in the water in the shape of a gigantic snake.

The Zambezi River flooded thrice when the Kariba Dam was constructed in the 1950s, causing numerous deaths and much devastation. The locals believe that Nyaminyami became angry with the building of the Dam and thus was the entity that caused the horrendous floods. The peculiar form of Victoria Falls allows its entire width to be seen face-on from as near as 60 metres to the Falls due to the Zambezi River dropping into a deep and narrow slot-like fissure connected to a lengthy sequence of ravines. There are very few waterfalls in the world that permit this close of an approach on foot.

The Falls are created by the entire width of the river plummeting in a solitary vertical drop into a 120 metre wide chasm, whittled by the cascading waters along a breakage area in the basalt plateau. The chasm called the First Gorge varies from 80 metres deep at its west end to 108 metres in its centre. The only opening to the First Gorge is though a gap 110 metres wide, approximately two-thirds of the way across the width of the Falls from the western end, through which the entire volume of the river spills into the gorges of the Victoria Falls. Two islands, Boaruka and Livingstone, are situated on the peak of the Falls. They are big enough to divide the sheet of water, even at full flood. At less than full flood, other islands perform the task of dividing the curtain of water into dispersed parallel streams. The main streams are known as Leaping Water, Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Rainbow Falls (the tallest) and the Eastern Cataract.

Day 12 - 13

Kruger National Park, South Africa

We start the day embarking on a morning game walk before making our way into the Kruger National Park. We spend an afternoon game driving, all the while keeping our eyes peeled for wildlife. Our truck gives us a spectacular vantage point from which to game watch and is able to locate large cats and smaller game concealed by plant life. We end the day off with a sunset game drive before our next day in the park. The following day we enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Kruger, providing you with many incredible photographic opportunities. Keep a lookout for Africa’s ‘Big 5’ (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as well as a wide range of other animal and bird species.

Formed in 1898 to guard the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this National Park of almost two million hectares is unmatched in the variety of wildlife it boasts. The Kruger Park is also a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. About 145 mammal species, including the Big Five, more than 500 bird species, some of which cannot be located anywhere else in South Africa, and 336 tree species can be found in the Kruger National Park.

When the very first tourist vehicles drove through the Park in 1927, they created their own camps in thorn-bush enclosures and were required to be armed with weapons in order to guard themselves from predators. During WWII, the Park was closed to the public and was then opened again in 1946, but under new management. Currently the Park is one of the most renowned safari destinations in the world with all the facilities you could expect from a top-notch holiday destination. However, it has thankfully maintained its wild, untouched environment that allows you to experience true Africa.

Activity Package: Morning Guided Bush Walk, Sunset Game Drive, Full day 4×4 game drive

Day 14

Greater Kruger Area to Johannesburg, South Africa

Today we depart from the Kruger National Park and continue our travels back into Johannesburg. We journey along the incredible Panorama Route, making stops at the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window. Blyde River Canyon is the third biggest canyon in the world, with awe-inspiring views of formations like God’s Window and the Three Rondavels. Our tour comes to an end once we reach Johannesburg, the City of Gold, and we spend our final night together at a local restaurant, celebrating our tour.

The Panoramic Route found in Mpumalanga follows the rim of the Blyde River Canyon and encompasses some awe-inspiring views of the majestic Three Rondavels, Bourke’s Luck Pothole and the Pinnacle. Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and acquired its name in 1840, with ‘blyde’ meaning ‘joyful’, from the Voortrekkers who passed through en route to Lorenzo Marques, which is now famously known as Mozambique. It is one of the most magnificent canyons in all of Africa, with cliffs towering up to 800 metres high. Perhaps the finest view in the entirety of the Blyde River Canyon is that of the Three Rondavels – three enormous rock spirals jutting out of the distant wall of the canyon. Their summits look like the rounded roofs of huts, which is where they got their name. They are each individually named, one after each of the Swazi Chief Maripi’s wives. From lowest to highest, they are named Magabolle, Mogoladikwe and Maserote.

Where the Blyde and Treur Rivers join, water erosion has created one of the most incredible geological spectacles in the country, known as Bourke’s Luck Potholes. Over many, many years, bizarre cylindrical granite sculptures that have been formed by swirling water have created a sequence of dark pools which contrast dramatically with the streaked white and yellow lichen-covered rocks. Continuing along the road and following the Treur River south, we will pass more viewpoints, including Wonder View, the awesome God’s Window and the Pinnacle.

Johannesburg, or the ‘City of Gold’, is the biggest and most populated South African city and is the second biggest city in all of Africa (after Cairo). Gold was discovered in the mineral-rich Witwaterstrand in 1886 by George Harrison, an Australian prospector. This find began a massive gold rush as fortune-hunters flocked to the region from all parts of the world. A large labour force of contract workers quickly sprung to work in the mines, and within the span of just three years, Johannesburg transformed into South Africa’s biggest settlement. This city is the now the economic and financial centre of the country and though mining no longer takes place within the bounds of the city, the headquarters of the majority of mining businesses can be located here. Johannesburg is also renowned as the world’s biggest man-made forest, with more than ten million trees planted throughout the massive city.
