Led by Dr. William Foster, Birmingham Zoo President and CEO

Experience two of the most incredible destinations in Africa, brimming with wild experience and luxury accommodation. Start in charming, elegant, and mysterious, South Africa, where you’ll come face to face with Africa’s Big 5 in the incredible MalaMala Game Reserve. In Botswana, wing your way from camp to camp on small planes, taking in spectacular aerial views of the African vista leopard-female-chitabe-4-2below, soaring low enough to make out elephant, giraffe, and more. Once you arrive, experience the Okavango, a wetland wilderness of looping channels, islands forested with palms and wide grassy floodplains, home to a magnificent array of iconic birds and animals.
