If you're going all the way to Africa, you want to do it right. This 32-day journey through Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe offers a mixture of safari and wildlife spotting, mingling with people in villages and nomadic tribes, canoe cruising down the Okavango Delta, relaxing on white-sand beaches and sipping local beers in Vic Falls. This rugged adventure won't just turn you into a master camper (though that's bound to happen too). The landscapes, local stories and animal encounters will leave you changed forever. This trip is for 18 to 29-year-olds. Some of our under-30 travellers prefer to get around with people their own age. If that's you, you're in the right place!
