This Nairobi to Cape Town overland tour is an epic 56 day African overland safari covering all the highlights of nine countries in East and Southern Africa. Stare into the soft brown eyes of a gorilla, watch thousands of animals trample the plains of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti, bask on palm-backed beaches on Zanzibar, and idle away sunny days on Lake Malawi. Further south are the thundering Victoria Falls, the vast wilderness of the Okavango Delta, the giant sand dunes in Namibia's Namib-Naukluft National Park, and dynamic Cape Town, easily one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
