Why join CNH Tours to Southern Africa?

With the help from a wildlife conservation champion of the region (Dr. Karen Ross) and with support from someone with nearly 20 years of experience running a custom tourism company in the region (Glen Stephen at Liquid Giraffe), we’ve assembled the elements of a one-of-a-kind 14 day small group trip to some of the world’s most iconic wildlife destinations.  We've added cultural / historical components which, all told, will give you an authentic taste of Southern Africa.   Most of the places you’ll be experiencing are UNESCO World Heritage sites – they’ve been formally recognized as being of global significance by the international community.   

Specifically, the trip includes:

  • Stunning land and seascapes of Cape Town along with the region’s cultural vibrancy (South Africa)
  • Rugged semi-desert ecosystems of the Kalahari, guided by local bushmen (Botswana)
  • Ancient secrets of Tsodilo Hills (Botswana)
  • Magnificent African wildlife of Okavango – both at its panhandle and in the Delta (Botswana)
  • Magic and history at the breath-taking Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Why is a Galapagos specialist offering the Okavango and surrounding sites?

This is a fair question. CNH Tours does not organize or sell trips to destinations unless we feel we are intimately familiar with them.  For the first 20 years of our existence, we have been singularly focused on Galapagos for the simple reason that we personally know no other wildlife destination so well.    

It’s only because we were able to bring Karen Ross and Glen Stephen on board that we feel we can offer this particular trip.  We asked them to design this one-of-a-kind custom visit, one they considered would be the best 2 week trip to the region, and to do it during what they considered to be the best time of year to appreciate the diverse attributes of the places you'll be going to.  This trip is the culmination of their work.
