46 Day Northern Trek - Johannesburg to Nairobi Overland Tour



On this Johannesburg to Nairobi overland tour through eight countries, you will see a variety of landscapes from vast tracts of animal-filled bush, tranquil lakes and rivers, misty rain forests and dazzling beaches.

There is a wealth of game parks to explore on the hunt for the 'big five', then there's the magnificent Victoria Falls, and to stare into the soft brown eyes of a gorilla is an experience not to be forgotten. From south to north, this offers the best attractions in east and southern Africa.

This overland tour also runs in reverse from Nairobi to Johannesburg.
