Ian’s Safari and Island Escape


Ian’s Safari and Island Escape


Overview

Ian has put together a tour that incorporates the very best that Africa has to offer. From ultimate safari locations to world wonders and tropical islands, this itinerary has it all.    
 
“I chose this itinerary to give guests a diverse safari experience with Kruger and Chobe, an opportunity to visit the Victoria Falls and then have time to relax on the beach on an island setting,” Ian says.
 
“The trip starts off with a visit to the game rich Sabi Sand in the Greater Kruger National Park. The area is well known for its big cat sightings and their luxurious and intimate safari experiences. The next stop is the world famous Victoria Falls known as one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”
 
The trip then continues to the Chobe National Park area that is unique for its river safari cruises. Sightings of big herds of Elephant and Buffalo are common in this area. After an overnight in Johannesburg you end of your trip on the Indian Ocean Island of Mauritius where can kick up your feet relax, unwind and soak up the sun.
