This trip requires that one or more internal flights be booked separately by REI. Our travel specialists will collect payment and make reservations for all confirmed group members for these required internal flights. Unique luggage weight restrictions may apply. Because airfare prices can change without notice, all flight prices are subject to change.
Our departure dates coincide with the winter and spring months when wildlife safaris are at their best. The temperature variances between day and night are more pronounced with average daytime temperatures generally falling between the high 70s and low 90s (warmer in October than in May-September) and nighttime temperatures often dropping into the 40s. Although midday temperatures are pleasant, early morning and nighttime on game drives can be quite cool and participants should bring some warmer clothing and follow the recommendations on our Gear List. Rainfall is uncommon in Botswana and Victoria Falls but is likely in Cape Town.
This trip is subject to the booking information set forth in the current REI Adventures Reservation Information. Please read this information carefully and call us if you have any questions. Additional trip information will be provided upon sign up. We highly recommend the purchase of travel insurance through REI Adventures. If coverage is purchased at the time of your initial reservation, the 'Pre-existing Conditions Exclusion' is waived (certain exclusions apply).
We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Why wait? Space is limited, reserve your adventure today.
