Answer the call of the wild

12 March 2014

Answer the call of the wild

Go gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda, watch the great wildlife migration in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater and jump with Maasai warriors in Tanzania on 30 safaris through Africa with Topdeck.

The youth travel brand has released its new Africa brochure featuring adventures ranging fromseven to 58 days through Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda, Botswana, Namibia and more.

Each trip features ‘Totally Topdeck’ included experiences such as game drives in Kruger National Park to spot the Big 5, a ‘mokoro’ (dug-out) canoe excursion in the Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls, climbing the massive sand dunes of the Namib desert and exotic Zanzibar.

Visit some of Africa’s best beaches and game parks on the new 14-day Mozambique & Zimbabwe Explorer, which starts at Victoria Falls and finishes in Johannesburg or reverse from NZ$2275 per person.

Highlights include Hwange National Park - Zimbabwe’s premier game viewing area, a foot safari with endangered white rhinos, a visit to the nearly 1000-year-old Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the idyllic Indian Ocean coast, a full day traditional dhow sailing and game drives in Kruger National Park.

There are also opportunities to try adventure activities such as bungy jumping, gorge-swinging and white water rafting at Victoria Falls.

Other safaris include the 14-day Gorilla Encounter which starts and finishes in Nairobi and features an optional trek to see a family of gorillas in the wilds of Uganda and a visit to a chimpanzee sanctuary from NZ$2150 per person.

Those looking for a more extensive African adventure can choose one of Topdeck’s ‘combination’ trips which range from 36 to 58 days and join several itineraries.
