Safari Newsletter Dated January 16, 2017
Dear Vacations To Go Customer,
This week, I'd like to share five of our
best-selling African safaris
based on bookings made by Vacations To Go customers. I've described each
safari briefly below. Click the links to see itinerary details and a
full list of dates and prices.
18 Day Kaleidoscope of South Africa
18 days with Gate 1 Travel
-- Seek lions and elephants in Kruger
National Park over two full days of game drives; spot crocodiles and
hippos in the St. Lucia Estuary and meet the penguins of Boulders Beach
on the Cape Peninsula. Gate 1 guests also visit Nelson Mandela's former
home and the Apartheid Museum in Soweto, meet glass artists in Swaziland
and dine with a Cape Town family in their home.
Splendors of South Africa & Victoria Falls With Chobe National Park
14 days with Globus
-- This itinerary starts in Cape Town, where
you'll explore the Bo-Kaap (a neighborhood of colorful homes also known
as the Malay Quarter) and ride a cable car up Table Mountain. In Kapama
Private Game Reserve, look for the "Big Five" -- lions, leopards,
buffalo, elephants and rhinos -- and join a bush walk to learn how to
identify animal tracks. Fly north to spend time at thundering Victoria
Falls and take a sunset cruise of the Zambezi River, then head to Chobe
National Park in Botswana, known for its large elephant population.
10 days with Intrepid Travel
-- This is a camping trip, sometimes
in rustic base camps with no facilities, where guests help with tent
setups, food preparation and other chores. Visit the Khama Rhino
Sanctuary in Botswana, which protects both black and white rhinos,
before journeying to the Okavango Delta. This preserve of wetlands and
waterways supports an abundant variety of wildlife, and guests explore
it by mokoro (a traditional dugout canoe) and on a sunrise walk. Also
featured are the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, Chobe National Park and
17 Day Classic South Africa With Namibia
17 days with Gate 1 Travel
-- Highlights of the South Africa
portion of this itinerary include game drives in top nature preserves, a
Soweto visit and four nights in Cape Town. You'll also have an
opportunity to sign up for optional activities, like a private wine
country tour or a shark cage-diving adventure. In Namibia, walk the
seaside promenades of Swakopmund, cruise Walvis Bay in search of
dolphins, see the dramatic red dunes of Sossusvlei and stay at a
Windhoek lodge with beautiful mountain views.
Kenya & Tanzania: A Classic Safari
13 days with Tauck
-- This is one of Tauck's BBC Earth Journeys,
and it gives guests the technology to see wildlife in a unique way; for
example, use thermal imaging to observe nocturnal life in the game
parks. Highlights include Ngorongoro Crater, home to a dense population
of animals like zebras, wildebeests, gazelles and their predators; your
lodge is perched at the caldera's rim. Scout the savannas of the
Serengeti for more wildlife, soar over the Masai Mara during an early
morning hot air balloon ride and visit sanctuaries for chimpanzees and
for orphaned and injured animals.
