20 Day Victoria Falls to Nairobi Overland Adventure 2018 Itinerary

Day 1: Victoria falls, Zimbabwe

Our adventure starts in Zimbabwe where we will view the great Victoria Falls in all its glory. Feel the spray of the cool water as you get close to the Falls. There are a number of optional activities here such as whitewater rafting and bungee jumping

The Victoria Falls are located in a flat country, with its source being situated on the borders of the DRC. The Zambezi flows for 1,300 kilometres across the wooded highlands of Zambia, forming a shallow valley on its slight descent to the Falls. The River eventually located a weak spot on the surface on which it passed through, and eroded a passage that slowly deepened into an exit gorge. Throughout the past half a million years, the river has carved out eight of these fissures across its floor.

‘Zambezi’ is derived from the Tonka tribe, meaning ‘Great River’. However, the Kololo Sotho-speaking people in the upper regions of the river deemed it ‘Mosi-ia-Tunya’, meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’. Either way, both names refer to the sheer power and magnificence of the mighty Falls.

Accommodation: Explorers Village (or similar)

Day 2: Victoria Falls – Lusaka, Zambia

Today is a full day of driving from Victoria Falls to Lusaka along bumpy roads in our overland vehicle. The vehicle is equipped for poor road conditions though and your journey will be as comfortable as possible. We will arrive at a private farm in the late afternoon which provides ample opportunities to spot the zebras, buffalo and other animals that roam the area. You can also relax at the pool or have a few drinks at the bar. There will be a border crossing today so please have your visas ready.

Accommodation: Eureka camping Park
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Lusaka – Chipata, Zambia

Our journey will continue across Zambia. Spend time getting to know your fellow travellers and enjoy lunch along the way where you can stop and stretch your legs and take a few photographs.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Chipata – South Luangwa, Zambia

We venture northeast today, up through the landscapes of Zambia to the Eastern Province’s capital, Chipata.

Day 6: South Luangwa – Kande Beach, Lake Malawi

We cross the border into Malawi today, so be sure to once again have your visa ready. We spend four evenings unwinding on the shores of ‘the Lake of Stars’. Beach strolls, swimming in the sparkling water and snorkelling amongst exotic fish are all part of your incredible stay here.

The Lake is the primary attraction of Malawi, spreading over 1/5th of the country. It is the third biggest lake in the continent and is around 500 kilometres in length. The lake houses more fish types than any other lake in the world, boasting over 600 different species. The biggest fish family is the Chichlids, which are sent all around the world to pet shops and such. The Lake is renowned for its fantastic snorkelling and diving, and it is depended on by the locals for their survival – they use mokoros (dugout canoes) to fish from and throw out long nets. There is a wide variety of diverse ethnic groups here, all speaking their own language. Most of these groups are of Christian belief, whilst the remainder maintain their traditional beliefs.

It is the primary seaport for the country, landlocked by adjacent countries.

Shop for antiques, printed cloths (kangas or kikois), carved chests and aromatic spices – spoils for yourself or your friends and family.

Day 17: Arusha – Serengeti National Park

Prepare for three days of superb wildlife viewing in Serengeti National Park where you can look out for the Big 5, elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard. We switch to specialised four wheel drive safari vehicles today, and are led on an incredible game drive through the Park by expert driver/guides. The trucks we use have lovely sliding windows and a big, pop-up roof that is ideal for fantastic game viewing. They are smaller than our traveling vehicle, which lets us move more easily through the plains.

With an area of 14,763 square kilometres, the Serengeti is incredibly vast. We camp and spend time game viewing in the central Serengeto ‘Seronera’ region, which is situated in the southeast of the Park. Due to the size of the reserve, certain areas will not be available to visit during our stay here.

Accommodation: Seronera Campsite (or similar)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 18: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater

We will have a full day of game driving today in the Serengeti. We will then return to camp and pack up to drive to the Ngorongoro Crater and finish off the day by camping at the rim of the crater.

As we travel through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and into the Serengeti National Park, you will begin to realise the enormity of this region, admiring the huge populations of wildlife that roam the acacia-spotted plains.

If you have pre-booked for your balloon safari (539USD) today is most likely the day that you will enjoy take part in this activity.
