Big Five 'n' Falls

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

We could explain the name, but that would be patronising.

All jokes aside? This is one wild, wild week. Test your critter knowledge on the game drive trail in Kruger. Be at one with nature in Matobo National Park. Fuel your inner daredevil with some tummy-flipping activities at Victoria Falls. If you’ve always wanted to do the safari thing, this short (but oh-so-sweet) adventure’s got your name on it.

Worth noting…

We strongly advise bringing a soft bag or backpack rather than a hard suitcase. Luggage is stored in lockers on your overland truck which are 66cm x 45cm x 25cm and take no more than 20kg. You will require a padlock to keep your locker secure. You may also bring a small day bag.

A sleeping bag is required for those booking the camping option.

Visas are not included. Many countries in Africa require you to purchase visas before you travel; please ensure you have checked before you travel and obtained all of the necessary documents.

Please ensure you have obtained any required vaccinations and medications in advance of travel. Many African countries require you to have a yellow fever certificate on entry.
