“This was my 3rd adventure with World Expeditions and my 2nd to South Africa. The variety of each and every tour is a major factor in my decision making and this tour did not disappoint. Each day was something different and we were so lucky to have such wonderful guides as Jojo and Bryan. Their knowledge and those of the local guides were tremendous. Each yummy meal was prepared and delivered by our guides - something we looked forward to each day. We managed to see a wide variety of animals and birds and they were described to us in a very professional way. I loved visiting the historical sites and learning about the lives of the local people. Your Responsible Travel policies and practices are to be applauded. Well done WE. Even the local guides who we had for 1/2 or full day trips were of a high standard. Everything ran so smoothly. I can't wait to visit again!”

“This was my third overlanding expedition in Southern Africa and it did not disappoint. The scenery, wildlife and cultures in Zimbabwe and Botswana were spectacular. Particular highlights were having the fabulous ruins at Great Zimbabwe all to ourselves to explore with our brilliant local guide at leisure; tracking rhino on foot in Matobo NP with an anti-poaching patrol and venturing into the watery Okavango wonderland to free camp in the wild. Unforgettable experiences - thank you World Expeditions!”
