The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
From the Hwange savannah to Victoria Falls
An African safari is a life-changing adventure—and sharing the experience with your family makes it even more special. Encounter wildlife big and small across the African bush on this incredible journey from Hwange National Park to Victoria Falls. Rise early to cruise the savannah in search of lions, cheetahs, and elephants; then, head back to your luxury lodge for an afternoon by the pool while the kids set out on a nature walk. Of course, no trip to Zimbabwe is complete without a visit to Victoria Falls—you’ll spend three full days just downstream from this beautiful, thundering giant. Pure magic.
*This trip is designed for kids age 7+. Trip price includes flights between Johannesburg Airport before and after your trip.

Day by Day
It's off to Somalisa Acacia Camp in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve. Spend your days here adjusting to safari life—morning game drives, afternoon naps, swimming, meditating, the choice is yours.
Rise early to welcome the crisp African dawn with a fresh cup of coffee! Spot the elephants, buffalo, zebra and cheetahs on your morning game drive. Don't be surprised if dinner is interrupted by the distant call of a lion.
Sneak in some pool time while the kids make new friends by the watering hole—the options abound again! Spend your afternoon birdwatching and the evening stargazing.
More game drives and relaxation overlooking the grasslands are in order today. At times, the animals may even wander onto your campground—keep an eye out for friendly elephants!
Hop on a short flight to your next lodge at Victoria Falls—arguably Zimbabwe's grandest attraction (certainly its loudest). Spend your days nestled along the Zambezi River getting to know the area.
You could take your adventure to the next level today with a white-water rafting trip or zip-lining experience in town.
Relax by the infinity pool or take a guided tour of the Falls. Be sure to leave some time for an evening game drive, spending the night with some of Zimbabwe's more nocturnal residents.
Squeeze in one final safari activity before making your way back to O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg for your evening departure home. Safe onward journey!

Comprised of luxury canvas tents, this family-style lodge boasts en-suite bathrooms, two tented common living spaces, gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for cool nights, and splendid indoor and outdoor showers.

Victoria Falls River Lodge, Victoria Falls
Perched on the edge of the mighty Zambezi river, this tented luxury lodge is so close to Victoria Falls, you can see the spray in the distance. Each tent offers a larger than king size bed, a freestanding bath and soothing outdoor shower. Private viewing decks afford spectacular views of the river—so sit back, relax and watch while the hippos wallow! View hotel website »
We were fascinated to learn how close we were to each and every animal and so impressed with the guides. We became friends with all of them in a very short time—my children will definitely be returning thanks to you, your planning, and the wonderful African people we met.— Kathleen Murphy
B&R provided an incredible experience! No detail was overlooked and our guides were exceptional in every aspect.— Patsy Walker
