Embark on a Journey of Discovery

Embark on an exhilarating 8-day journey departing from Johannesburg, venturing northward towards Musina. We’ll traverse the countryside to our first sanctuary, a hidden eco lodge nestled in the Limpopo bush, offering hearty meals and cozy cabins. On the second day, we leisurely cross the border into Zimbabwe, allowing ample time for the process, and trace the Limpopo River to our next gem, a secluded spot for sundowners overlooking the river.

Day three brings an early start as we navigate through the remote and stunning Southwestern Zimbabwe, following the Thuli River to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Matopo Hills Nature Reserve. Day four offers a restful exploration of its majestic landscapes and rich history, including a half-day tour and rhino tracking.

Day five leads us into Botswana with a leisurely ride, a supply stop in Francistown, and our first night camping on the eastern edge of the enchanting Makgadikgadi Pans, immersing ourselves in the vastness of the starlit sky. After breaking camp, we venture to the renowned Lekhubu Island for a celestial dinner under the stars. Finally, we embark on a gentle return journey, spending our last night in comfortable chalets near the border before heading home.
