2023 Season

Splendors of South Africa & Victoria Falls with Chobe River Cruise


tour: QSE4
15 Day Tour from Capetown to Johannesburg
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, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. 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.

Want to end your Africa tour with the royal treatment? A relaxing 3-night Chobe River cruise with Monograms aboard the Chobe Princess houseboat is just the ticket. This intimate safari experience offers a sense of exclusivity and a unique, up-close glimpse at wildlife and local village life. Friendly staff are availalble to assist at all times and hearty meals ensure you have the energy to make the most of each day. Oh, and did we mention the spacious cabins with panoramic windows and viewing deck with plunge pool? So, you’ll feel at one with nature no matter throughout your cruise!
