Day 1. Dar es Salaam to Stone Town Highlights. Stone Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania.

It's an early start on the first day of this adventure tour as we make our way to the ferry terminal to catch the ferry across to Zanzibar. Zanzibar conjures up images of the exotic and the first stop is the capital, Stone Town. Here we can explore the winding passage ways of the bazaars and markets on foot, ending the day with a delicious cocktail and views of the sunset over the ocean.

Day 2-3. Stone Town to Kendwa Highlights. Zanzibar, Northern Beaches, Tanzania.

Today we are off to the Northern Beaches of Zanzibar with time to relax and kick back. Kendwa has beautiful palm fringed beaches and some epic diving spots for scuba divers and snorklers to explore. Enjoy the time to do as much or as little as you like.

Make sure that you chat to your tour leader about some of the fantastic optional activities that are on offer in the area.

Day 4. Zanzibar Island to Dar es Salaam Highlights. Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Winding our way back down towards Stone Town today, there is time for a last swim or to grab a deal on souvenirs in the market before jumping back on the ferry to the mainland.

Once back in Dar es Salaam, it's only a short transfer back to our camp on the beach.

Day 5. Dar es Salaam to Mikumi Highlights. Mikumi National Park, Tanzania.

We set off early in our Acacia vehicle this morning to make our way through the city traffic and onwards heading west across the Tanzanian landscape. As we settle into the rhythm of a day, we pass various villages and towns before driving through Mikumi National Park. We should be lucky enough to spot some elephant or giraffe grazing along the roadside.

Our camp for the night is just a short distance out of the national park itself.

Day 6. Mikumi to Iringa

Onwards and upwards we head to the highlands via the picturesque Baobab Valley! Our destination today is a working farm in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Kisolanza is blessed with a pleasant climate which results in some fantastic produce. Don't forget to indulge in their famous chocolate brownies!

Day 7. Iringa to Chitimba Beach, Malawi Highlights. Chitimba Beach. Lake Malawi, Malawi.

Before we bid farewell to Tanzania today, we traverse down the Southern Highlands through lush tea and banana plantations and rich grazing land. We cross into Malawi at the Songwe River.

Malawi is dominated by the lake both geographically and economically and our first stop is at Chitimba Beach on the Northern Lakeshore.

Day 8. Chitimba Beach Highlights. Livingstonia Day Hike, Malawi.

Chitimba is located at the foot of the Livingstonia plateau which takes it's name from the famous explorer, David Livingstone. He based himself at a mission station high in the surrounding hills where he taught the local Malawian people about Christianity and hoped to improve their standard of living. If you're feeling energetic and adventurous you can trek to the Manchewe Falls and the Livingstonia Mission. The 11km trek is well worth it and you will be rewarded by a cooling natural bath at the top.

Of course, a day just chilling on the beach could also be in order.

Day 9. Chitimba Beach to Kande Beach

From one beach to another is how this part of this adventure goes. Our journey continues south through the market town of Muzuzu where we stock up on provisions and browse the local markets. Further on, the road takes us through rubber plantations before we arrive at our home for the next couple of nights at Kande Beach..

Day 10. Kande Beach Highlights. Kande Beach Activities, Malawi.

Located on a sandy beach with the fresh water of Lake Malawi stretching out to the horizon, Kande is a great spot to do as little or as much as you desire. Explore the village, horse ride, scuba dive in the warm waters of the lake in search of tropical Cichlids or kick back in a hammock on the beach. The choice is yours!

Day 11. Kande Beach to Chipata

Leaving the lake shore, it's time to get the passports ready as we cross into Zambia today, heading to Chipata. This colourful market town has a large Indian population which makes it quite a melting pot of cultures and wonders.

Depending on the time taken with the border formalities we will hopefully have time to stop in town at the market.

Day 12. Chipata to Lusaka Highlights. Lusaka, Zambia.

Heading West on the Great Eastern road our journey takes us to Zambia's capital, Lusaka. Southern Africa's fastest growing city, Lusaka, is a real hub with transport links heading North, South, East and West.

Our camp for the night is just outside Lusaka on a tranquil farm.

Day 13. Lusaka to Livingstone Highlights. Victoria Falls - Mosi oa Tunya National Park, Zambia.

Our journey takes us through villages to our destination Livingstone. Our campsite is on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River just upstream from the famous Victoria Falls. This will be our home for the next four nights and offers the perfect base to explore Livingstone, the Victoria Falls and the surrounding area.

Day 14-16. Livingstone Highlights. Livingstone Activities, Zambia.

Livingstone, located on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River and the mighty Victoria Falls is arguably the adventure capital of Southern Africa.

Three of the days spent here are free days so each person can make the most of what is on offer, according to their preferences. From adrenaline activities to more sedate experiences, all are available so everyone should have plenty to keep themselves busy making memories. When not enjoying time out exploring, the camp is home to 2 swimming pools and a restaurant to ensure you can relax and enjoy your free time.

Day 17. Livingstone to Bulawayo

Another day, another country! Crossing the Victoria Falls bridge this morning we enter Zimbabwe and continue south to Bulawayo, a pretty colonial city with wide tree-lined avenues. Our camp for the night is in the Matopos area, well known for its interesting hills, rich cultural and colonial history and quirky rock formations.

Day 18. Matobo National Park Highlights. Matobo National Park, Zimbabwe.

The Matobo hills have strong cultural and spiritual significance to the indigenous people and many Bushman paintings can be found in the area. Not only is there a vast amount of cultural interests, but the park is also home to amazing concentrations of wild animals including large populations of both Black and White Rhino.

We are lucky enough to enjoy a wilderness walk and a nature drive in the Matobo National Park today.

Day 19. Bulawayo to Tshipise, South Africa Highlights. Tshipise, South Africa.

We make our final border crossing today into South Africa- the last country we visit on our adventure tour. Entering at Beitbridge, we cross the Limpopo River just a few hours south of Bulawayo.

Border formalities can be time consuming but once completed we continue to our home for the night, a comfortable campsite at Tshipise, home to one of the hot springs in the area. Enjoy a nighttime swim in the heated pools under a starry sky.

Day 20. Tshipise to Hazyview Highlights. Shangaan Cultural Evening.

Our destination today is on the outskirts of one of the world's most famous national parks, Kruger. Our route takes us southbound through the farming towns of northern province and along the western edge of the park and the scenery en route varies in this very fertile region of South Africa.

Our camp is in Hazyview, just a short distance from the Kruger National Park where we prepare for a full day game driving tomorrow.

Day 21. Kruger National Park Highlights. Kruger National Park, South Africa.

To make most of our full day Kruger safari game drive, we're up before sunrise to arrive at the park gate when it opens at dawn. Using professional, local guides in open 4x4 vehicles, we benefit from a wealth of knowledge gained from them being in the park day in, day out. We break for lunch at one of the comfortable rest camps in the park before continuing our Kruger safari into the late afternoon.

We leave the park with a long list of animal sightings having hopefully ticked off the Big Five with unforgettable memories to take back home.

Day 22. Hazyview to Pretoria

The final day of our safari tour in Africa takes us from the Lowveld and up into the highveld and the beating heart of South Africa city 'Pretoria'. This is where our journey must come to an end late in the afternoon on arrival in the city.
