World Journeys releases The Best of Southern Africa

World Journeys have just released their small group hosted journey “Best of Southern Africa” for 2017. 

Director and Africa specialist Ange Pirie says “this is by far one of our most popular small group journeys, which we put down to it capturing the essential highlights of South Africa, Namibia and Botswana, all in one seamless experience. 

For 2017 World Journeys have reduced the maximum group size from 24 to 18, just to make it a more personal experience – there is still the enjoyment of sharing the experience with your travelling companions, but the group size allows you more space while travelling, and the ability to stay at smaller more boutique properties. 

Commencing in Johannesburg on 2 May 2017, the 19 day “guaranteed to go” itinerary kicks off in style aboard the luxurious Blue Train from Pretoria to Cape Town where sightseeing includes a full day in the Winelands. 

You then fly to Namibia, and a fabulous luxury lodge in the Sossusvlei Desert for the spectacular dunes and starry night skies.  Back to South Africa you enjoy a safari in the Sabi Sands area of Kruger National Park, staying at Kirkman’s Kamp and enjoying daily game drives. 

Next up is Victoria Falls, staying at the legendary Victoria Falls Hotel before heading out on safari again in Chobe National Park with its vast herds of elephants, finishing with an absolute highlight – three nights in the wildlife rich Okavango Delta. 

Priced from $18,675 per person share twin, this includes 5-star hotels and safari lodges, The Blue Train overnight journey, transfers, transport, some meals and beverages, sightseeing and entrance fees, and gratuities which are handled by the host. 

Book before 30 Nov 2016 to save $400 per couple (or $200 per person), and those who have travelled on a World Journeys small group hosted journey before enjoy a further $400 per couple (or $200 per person) “welcome back” saving.
