About this Trip

From the majesty of the Cape of Good Hope to the vast expanse of rural Africa and the splendor of Victoria Falls, Southern Africa has inspired travelers and explorers for centuries.  Explore colorful Cape Town, nestled between Table Mountain and the sea, walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, take a scenic trip along the Cape Peninsula and absorb the energy of lively Soweto. Board the Rovos Rail train for the fascinating journey through Botswana and Zimbabwe. Visit the thundering Victoria Falls before traveling on to Chobe National Park. Honorary Consul for Botswana, Charles Frankel, will lecture on the tour.  This tour sells out quickly every year!

  • “There are too many highlights to limit this to just one: Thornybush, especially the safari rides, the Rovos train trip, seeing Robben Island and Soweto, and Victoria Falls.”
