Want the lion's share of colorful cities, private game reserves, natural wonders, and wondrous wildlife? Point your compass south for the diverse and enchanting sights of South Africa and Zimbabwe. The glorious panoramas from Cape Town's Table Mountain and the candy-colored streets of its Bo-Kaap neighborhood set the stage for the sweet sights to come. Six open-air private game reserve drives near Kruger National Park offer a fascinating glimpse of up to 42 mammal species and 350 bird species. Keep your eyes peeled for the 'Big 5'-lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo-before branching out in Johannesburg. Here, you'll explore Soweto, the city's largest township, including the former home of Nelson Mandela and the most significant sites of the anti-apartheid movement. Your South Africa vacation crescendos at Victoria Falls, called Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) on the Zambezi River. Twice the height of Niagara Falls, this breathtaking waterfall spanning the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia offers twice the photo ops. Your tour of South Africa continues with a Monograms vacation package in Chobe National Park. Boasting games drives through diverse ecosystems and relaxing boat excursions on the Chobe River, Botswana's first national park is home to one of the greatest game concentrations on the continent. Finally, enjoy a Monograms vacation package in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya's most famous game area. Here, it's totally acceptable to follow the herd-especially the massive herds of zebra and wildebeest during the annual Great Migration. Your expert guide will lead you on five captivating game drives in custom-made safari vehicles with a pop-up roof for easy game viewing. Your stay in Chobe National Park and Maasai Mara includes guided game activities, accommodations, and services of an expert Ranger or Driver/Guide on safari.
