Great Safaris offers an inclusive luxury experience combining an amazing overland safari with a world-class African safari cruise
GLENDALE, Cali. – As the summer cruise season gets underway, remember to look beyond the big boats to find more personalized cruise experiences for travelers who want a smaller, more intimate excursion. Award-winning luxury safari outfitter Great Safaris offers an African Elephant Safari & Cruise, that gives travelers the chance to explore Africa by land and water.
Safari-goers will arrive in Victoria Falls to behold the breathtaking “Smoke that Thunders”. They will begin their tour with a relaxing sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River, listening to the roaring Falls and enjoying a sundowner cocktail while crocodiles and hippos float by. The next morning, travelers will explore the impressive Falls on a guided walking tour through the rainforest, then feed and interact with local elephants after an adventurous day.
Safari-goers will then travel to the Kazangula Border of Botswana, along the banks of the great Zambezi River, to board the world-class Zambezi Queen. Unlike a land-based lodge, the ZQ allows guests to explore an entire stretch of river from this comfortable and elegant, air-conditioned 14-suite ship. All suites offer unobstructed views of the river, vistas and wildlife through floor-to-ceiling windows and outer decks. Guests can partake in game drives via tender boat along the banks of the Chobe River; fish for Tiger and Bream; watch a magnificent array of wildlife and birdlife; and visit a Namibian village to interact with locals and purchase handmade crafts. Guests will feast on a full English breakfast, buffet lunch and fresh, locally-sourced evening meal everyday, and enjoy local as well as imported wine, beer and spirits (locally-sourced drinks are included).
Travelers will disembark from the cruise and overnight in Johannesburg before heading to the renowned Kruger National Park. Adventurers will relish daily game drives, getting up close to lion prides, capricious buffalo and herds of elephant to name a few. Special treat: Guests will enjoy the all-inclusive hospitality of Camp Jabulani including a night safari on elephant back, the ultimate African experience.
The 12-day African Elephant Safari & Cruise covers South Africa, Victoria Falls and Botswana. Land rates for Apr.-Dec. 2015 are $7,595 per person, with Wednesday arrivals in Victoria Falls (single supplement additional 40%).
Recommended Extension: Cape Town & the Winelands (5 Days). Includes transfers,
privately guided sightseeing of the city, Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula and the Winelands. Breakfasts and lunches included. Land rate: $2,395 per person, sharing accommodation.
