With breathtaking natural wonders, beautiful coastal towns and cities, and abundant wildlife, Southern Africa tours have plenty to offer. On this 18-day adventure, we’ll explore South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe, photographing spectacular scenery along the Garden Route, taking high tea in Cape Town (with Table Mountain as a backdrop), and travelling in sumptuous style on board a restored vintage train, taking in views of winelands, mountains and plateaux along the way. Journeying north, we’ll spot hippos wallowing in the Chobe River and feel nature’s full force at Victoria Falls.

Tracks of Africa

Please note

  • The Zambezi river levels are dependent upon rains further north and can fluctuate between seasons. From April to October the flow of water is generally lower than at other times, yet this in turn generates less spray, giving you a clearer view of Victoria Falls.
  • On this tour in 2025, you’ll say goodbye to your local Titan tour manager for South Africa as you board Rovos Rail. You'll then have the train’s guide on hand before you meet your new local Titan tour manager on arrival in Victoria Falls.
