The Wildlife Journey 65 Days

Kampala to Cape Town - Game park after game park - the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Chobe, Etosha, a mokoro safari in the Okavango. Days in the sun on Zanzibar Island. Victoria Falls. Help out in a local school and climb Namibia's dunes. Crazy times getting mashed on the wildest whitewater on the White Nile and the Zambezi. And if that isn't enough sky dive over the expanse of Namibia's desert, head out rhino trekking, walk with lions and come face to face with the endangered mountain gorilla!
