Guests traveling on Tauck’s newly launched “Botswana, South Africa & Zambia” safari next year will be have a chance to actually walk with and among a pride of juvenile lions. Tauk notes the walk comes during a visit to a lion research center near Livingstone, Zambia. At the center young lion cubs orphaned in the wild are nurtured and ultimately prepared for reintroduction into their natural environment.
Guests on Tauck's small-group adventure (featuring a maximum of just 20 travelers) will also travel offshore from Cape Town, South Africa, to nearby Seal Island. They’ll also explore a meerkat colony on Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Pan and view wildlife in a range of other settings. This ranges from open-top, six-passenger safari vehicles to a restored Pullman lounge and dining cars during a private steam train journey through Zambia’s Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
Price for the 12-day journey is from $8,890 per person, double-occupancy, plus international and on-tour air. Included in the price are all safari excursions, guides, most meals, accommodations in five-star hotels and luxury safari camps, airport transfers, luggage handling and much more.
Tauck said it will operate departures from April through November next year.
