Luxury Southern Africa Safari - Ker Downey

This suggested itinerary is just one of many ways to see Southern Africa on your own customized Ker & Downey journey. Our designers are at their best when crafting a journey unique to you; contact us to get started planning. In any case, read on to see one example of what’s possible on our luxury Southern Africa safari.


First, a light aircraft transfer takes you into the heart of the Okavango Delta where traditional bush camps exude elegance in the bush. While here, explore the remote reaches of the delta by mokoro. Traverse the landscape in search of larger wildlife on game drives. Or rather, spend the afternoon fishing for tigerfish, tilapia, and three-spotted bream on your Southern Africa safari.


Next on your Southern Africa safari, explore the impressive Mosi-oa-Tunya, the indigenous name for Victoria Falls. Its direct translation is the “Smoke that Thunders”. The falls, counted among the Natural Wonders of the World, top the list for must-see sights in southern Africa. Travel aboard the old Mulobezi Line on the Royal Livingstone Express for an unforgettable experience. During the journey, enjoy a five-course dinner as the vintage train makes its way through Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.

South Africa

Finally, split time on your Southern Africa safari between the bush and cosmopolitan Cape Town. South Africa is one of the best countries in Africa to see the Big Five. With trained guides, you’ll be able to check off the bucket list sightings and explore the abundance of other wildlife in the area.

In Cape Town, explore the Cape Peninsula and botanical gardens. The Winelands region is just a short drive from the city, ideal for a day trip to tour the wineries and taste some of South Africa’s best wines. And don’t worry: it is quite easy to ship your favorite wines home while on your Southern Africa safari!
