overview

Three of Africa's most iconic destinations are on the itinerary of this very diverse, 12-day safari. Combine the peerless game-viewing experience of Kenya's Masai Mara with the thundering spectacle of Victoria Falls before ending in serene style in Africa's favourite city - Cape Town.

Your safari will begin in a private concession adjoining the western boundary of the Masai Mara; besides the excellent game viewing you will get the chance to interact with Maasai warriors and if you have timed your visit for between July and November, you will catch the Wildebeest Migration, too.

Your adventure then takes you to mighty Victoria Falls where you can do anything from white-water rafting down the Zambezi River to scenic flights over the spray. You then continue your safari in Cape Town with four nights at a quaint and comfortable boutique hotel in a vibrant city neighbourhood close to coffee shops, restaurants, landmarks and art galleries.

  • See the Wildebeest Migration in season
  • Full-day, guided tour of Victoria Falls

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1-4

Explore the Masai Mara

On your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, you are be transferred to Wilson Airport for your short flight on a light aircraft to the Kichwa Tembo airstrip. Once here you will be met and transferred by road to the camp itself. Settle in and take stock of your new surroundings - if there is time, you could set out on your first game drive.

Spend the next two full days exploring the remarkable, game-rich Masai Mara National Reserve on exciting morning and afternoon game drives as well as Maasai-led nature walks. On one of these days you could also choose to enjoy an optional hot-air balloon ride over the golden savannah of the Masai Mara, a wonderful way to watch the savannah come to life in the glow of dawn.

Day 4-8

Touch down at Victoria Falls

Today you leave the Masai Mara after breakfast and transfer back to Nairobi where you will jet out of the city for a flight to Livingstone, in Zambia. On touching down in Livingstone, you will be met and driven to Thorntree River Lodge, which is situated in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.

Thorntree offers you the best of both worlds: the privacy of exclusive river frontage – complete with its own boat – and excellent proximity to Victoria Falls. After a day at the Falls, you can return to select a wine from Thorntree’s contemporary, temperature-controlled cellar, cool off in your private plunge pool or set out just before sunset for a sundowner cruise on Thorntree’s private boat.

On one of your four days here, you will be treated to a full-day tour of Victoria Falls with an experienced and knowledgeable guide who will explain everything there is to know about Africa’s greatest waterfall.

Day 8-12

Experience the Mother City

The last leg of your adventure will be spent in the beautiful, vibrant city of Cape Town with four nights at the world-class Cape Cadogan, located in the popular Gardens neighbourhood. You fly into the Mother City directly from Victoria Falls to make the most of your time here. Cape Cadogan is an exclusive boutique hotel that offers a haven of peace and tranquillity while still being close to the city centre, V&A Waterfront and popular beaches like Camps Bay and Clifton.

Cape Town has a wealth of attractions to discover: hike or take the cable car up Table Mountain and enjoy spectacular panoramic views; visit one of the popular city beaches at Camps Bay or Clifton; stroll around the extraordinary Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens; and take a tour around the Cape Peninsula, making sure to stop in at the endangered African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

One day in Cape Town will see you enjoying a private full-day tour of the Cape Winelands and Peninsula where you encounter breath-taking scenery and world-class wines.
