Spend 10 unforgettable days exploring some of Southern Africa’s most iconic destinations. Start your adventure in one of the top-rated tourist cities in the world, Cape Town. South Africa’s ‘Mother City’, as it is known, boasts spectacular natural beauty, and is set between two oceans with the glorious Table Mountain as its backdrop – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
You will have time to explore Cape Town’s culture in its vibrant city centre, at the popular and luxurious V&A Waterfront and on some of the best beaches on the planet like Clifton, Camps Bay and the renowned Boulders Beach – which is home to a large colony of endangered African penguins. Cape Town’s beauty also lies in the accessibility of its superb surroundings. Scenic drives from your elegant accommodation will take you to must-see places like Cape Point Nature Reserve, the remarkable Cape Winelands and Hermanus – Africa’s whale-watching capital from July until November.
You then move to a private game reserve situated alongside an unfenced border of the magnificent Kruger National Park. Sabi Sands offers an unrivalled Big 5 safari experience and pioneered the concept of luxury safari. It is not unusual to see all members of the Big 5 during one game drive and, because it is a private reserve, you will enjoy spectacular game viewing far away from the crowds.
Spend your last few days in the presence of the largest curtain of falling water on Earth, the majestic Victoria Falls. Take an unforgettable scenic flight over the waterfall and enjoy romantic boat cruises on the Zambezi River. Vic Falls also offers thrilling activities for more adventurous travellers like micro-lighting, bungee jumping and white-water rafting – living up to its name of the ‘Adrenalin Capital of Africa’. Between February and July (usually peaking between March and April), the mighty Zambezi River is in full flood and you can experience the waterfall at its most thunderous – a truly mesmerising sensory overload.
