Which Southern Africa Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Do you have an opinion about which OAT southern Africa trip? Price and length are nearly identical. I've only been to East Africa. They offer these two which sound so similar. We also want good cultural experience which is why we like OAT since we can visit a Hwange community and school on the "Ultimate" trip and a Victoria Falls community and school on the "South Africa Trip". We can also do a helicoptor tour over Vic Falls. The biggest difference seems that one visits Okavango Delta and the other visits Kruger National Park:

Ultimate Africa: 16 days (Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia)
Chobe • Okavango Delta • Kafue • Hwange • Victoria Falls
Option helicopter ride over Vic Falls
A day in the life of a Hwange community

Southern Africa: 17 days (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe)
Kruger • Hwange • Victoria Falls • Impalila Island • Chobe
Option helicoptor ride over Vic Falls
Visit to a Vic Falls community and school.
