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.

Stay at Tafika, home of the charming Coppinger family, and their unbeatable team of guides. Try morning walking safaris, evening game drives, a dawn microlight flight with the eagles, and even head out on the mountain bikes with John if you’re feeling fit!

Lake Malawi


After watching a sunrise over the bush, fly down to Mfuwe, and out to Lilongwe in Malawi. From here buzz down to the shores of Lake Malawi. Watch the sun go down with a cool glass of Malawi Gin from the deck of your reed chalet at Mumbo Island. Spend four days chilling out and capturing the magic of the lake from this deserted tropical island, where hiking, kayaking, swimming and some of the world’s best freshwater snorkelling await you.
