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.

Okavango Experience, 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 Victoria Falls.

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.
