Luxury safari outfitter, Great Safaris, is offering an African Elephant Safari & Cruise offer for travelers to explore Africa by land and water.
Travelers arrive in Victoria Falls to begin their tour with a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River where they can spot crocodiles and hippos. The next morning they explore the Falls on a guided walking tour through the rainforest, and have the opportunity to feed and interact with local elephants. Next, guests travel to the Kazangula Border of Botswana to board the Zambezi Queen, a 14-suite ship offering unobstructed views of the river and wildlife via floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can take part in game drives via tender boat along the banks of the Chobe River; watch wildlife, birdlife, and go fishing; and visit a Namibian village to interact with locals. Guests will disembark and overnight in Johannesburg before heading to Kruger National Park, where they can participate in daily game drives, and get up close to lions, buffalo, and herds of elephant. Your clients will also enjoy the all-inclusive Camp Jabulani, including a night safari riding on elephant. The 12-day African Elephant Safari & Cruise starts at $7,595 pp for travel now thru Dec. 2015.
