Taking place during “green season” (the off time of year to go on safari), this trip is able to offer a well-traveled pair high quality luxury accommodations at low season rates. The fun couple was pretty much game for everything, and that’s what this trip has; a little bit of everything. Their itinerary includes gorilla trekking, excursions at Victoria Falls, Zambezi & Hwange National Parks, shark cage diving and wrapping it all up with private cultural and culinary experiences in Cape Town & the Wine Lands.

Equally grand and unique, this trip covers a lot of ground as they migrate from Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda to the Cape Peninsula, but we knew they were up for it! After all, we were able to grasp their adventurous spirit once they decided to contact us after learning about Next Adventure while they were traveling in the Galapagos Islands.
