National Wildlife Day Prompts Five Of The Best!

It’s National Wildlife Day on Wednesday, perfect timing to book that bucket-list trip to see the ‘Big Five’ up close and personal!

The so-called magnificent five in question are Africa’s big game animals - the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo – and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours are offering adventurers the opportunity to see them in all their glory……whilst staying in five-star all inclusive luxury aboard one of their ships.

It is all part of the 28-day Namibia, South Africa and Victoria Falls tour. Prices start from £12,695 per person based on 11 May 2020 departure and includes all flights, complimentary private door-to-door chauffeurs, wining and dining experiences and excursions.

The 28-day tour takes guests from the remote capital of Namibia, Windhoek, to Kruger National Park, passing the stunning Sossusvlei dunes, Etosha National Park, Victoria Falls and the Chobe River along the way.

Highlights include:
Sundowners in the Namib Desert overlooking the open savannah
A quad bike tour through the shifting sand dunes
A winelands tour in Cape Town
An exclusive evening of traditional Zulu dancing and local drumming at Zululand’s legendary Ghost Mountain
A game drive and lecture from an expert game ranger in Kruger National Park
An exclusive journey to Nelson Mandela’s house in Soweto with a local guide
A wildlife-watching cruise along the Zambezi River
A visit to a typical Zimbabwean village and a cruise along the Chobe River – home to huge herds of elephants and buffalo
