Slow Travel in Africa

7 Wonders 7 Days – One Destination (Choose from South Africa, Zanzibar or Namibia)

Private and immersive, long-stay journeys:

andBeyond offers a selection of 7 Wonders in 7 Days itineraries that promise to take you on a journey to some of Africa’s most iconic wild places.

These itineraries have been specially created to ensure you won’t lose time travelling between multiple destinations. A longer stay, in one destination, means that you can enjoy more time reconnecting with yourself, your loved ones and the natural world.

Additionally, andBeyond have kept the idea of private travel (bubbles) at the forefront of these offerings. They call it “Exclusivity for Everyone”. Their range of private travel (bubble) opportunities will match the size of your travelling party; with accommodation, flights, transfers and activity options.

You can choose from three categories: a FULLY-PRIVATE offering (ensuring it’s just you and your group from start to finish); SEMI-PRIVATE that ensures your accommodation and activities are just for you; and (if you don’t mind sharing accommodation options but want your experiences all to yourself) our PRIVATE SAFARIS-ONLY option might just be for you.

Below are the Journeys in offering:
