    Description
    Southern Africa is so packed full of diverse highlights that we're taking two weeks to explore a few of them in depth. Wildlife is the regions calling card and there will be plenty of chances to spot the Big Five in Kruger, Hwange, and Matobo national parks. Aside from animals, there'll be many occasions to experience the unique regional cultures of Soweto, Shalati, and Victoria Falls. Add in opportunities to mingle with the locals in three countries through a cross-country train ride, sharing familial meals and visiting kids at the G Adventures-supported G Hope Africa preschool, and you'll come away with an even deeper understanding of what makes this part of the world truly special.
