Add a few extra days before or after your journey....while you are in this part of the world, why not spend as much of your time as possible exploring everything there is to explore?

Africa offers far more than we can show, which is why we can arrange exciting side trips to add to your safari. No matter what experience you are looking to have on a pre or post safari trip, our expert safari designers are here to help guide your choices for 2-5 night add-ons...

 • Hwange National Park is one of Africa’s best-kept secrets. Zimbabwe’s largest park covers about 1, 47 million hectares, and impressively contains one of the highest diversities of wildlife of any park on earth, with over 100 mammal and 400 bird species to discover. Just 3 hours from Victoria Falls, it’s an easy extra bush experience to add.

• Add on the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park for a complete Botswana picture. Makgadikgadi Salt Pans is a unique destination that should be on everyone’s bucket lists. A visit to the salt pans is something out of the ordinary and while it attracts a number of desert-adapted wildlife, it is the landscape that makes it so unique.
