Itinerary details

Zambezi River


You'll start this active adventure to Africa by flying into Johannesburg and then taking a quick up to Zambia's famous town of Livingstone. Here, you'll use Livingstone as your base for the next three days to explore the incredible area along the Zambezi River. Beautiful Tongabezi makes for the perfect base to visit the Victoria Falls and try out some of the many adrenaline activities. Or, for the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience, you can stay at Tonga’s little sister, Sindabezi, a deluxe private island in the middle of the Zambezi.
