    100% This is my second trip with Wander Expedition and I couldn’t recommend it enough even if I tried! The itinerary is perfect; the safaris are beautiful, and Victoria Falls is a sight to behold. But, by far the best part of the trip was the travel family I met. Alvaro always manages to bring in an eccentric group of people from all around the world. The ultimate truth is that all the memories you talk back are due to the people you travel with. Cant wait for my 3rd expedition with them!

    Perfect roadtrip to experience Africa as it really is: great safaris, impressive landscapes and a very interesting culture to be discovered. All with a fun travel family that made every second unforgettable. Thinking already about the next expedition! 🙂

    This trip was amazing for my first time visiting Africa! Included multiple safaris, Lake Malawi, and Victoria Falls – but those were only part of the adventure. The time on the road and stopping at local villages as we passed by were made even better thanks our great travel fam, was sad to leave at the end but hope to see everyone again and meet even more friends on future expeditions!!
