The ancient overland route from Cairo to Cape Town is the ultimate in Trans Africa Expeditions! This is REAL overland travel at its best! If you want air conditioning, hot showers every night and a cook then this expedition is not for you. Expect to get "stuck in" as you cover the major sights between Cairo and Cape Town, both on and off the beaten track.
From the awe-inspiring Great Pyramids of Giza head south through the Western Desert, cross Lake Nasser, the Sudan Desert, historic and ancient Ethiopia and enter bustling East Africa. Trek to the rare Mountain Gorillas, see the migrating herds in the Serengeti and chill out on Zanzibar Island.
Relax on the shores of Lake Malawi, cruise through Zimbabwe to walk with Lions and raft the mighty Zambezi at the base of majestic Victoria Falls. Southern Africa awaits with Botswana's famous Okavango Delta and Namibia's jewel - Etosha National Park - and the glorious Namib Desert with its massive sand dunes.
Finally cross into South Africa and finish up with Table Mountain. Whew! And that's not all of it! A true ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME! So go do it!! Next trip departs 16th October 2009 - don't miss out!
