The Limpopo Region: South Africa & Botswana 2021

The dream of a lifetime, the boundless savannah .we will discover the Limpopo region, which stretches between the north of South Africa and the south of Botswana. Here the real Africa begins to reveal itself, a land at times rich and at times merciless, with its scarce pools of water, dotted with bristly vegetation, which gives shelter and food to its inhabitants. The Limpopo valley takes its name from the river of the same name, dry for most of the year but which can reveal great surprises during the rainy season when everything is reborn. Poignant sunsets await you and as the evening falls, the swarming around your tents will make you dream and tremble under the starry sky.

Departure dates available on request all year round with a minimum of 1 person departing from Italy.

Start on Friday.
