Spend 11 unforgettable days in three of Southern Africa’s safari heavyweights and regular highlights on any itinerary.
Start your vacation in South Africa’s acclaimed Cape Town. One of the most awarded holiday destinations in the world, the ‘Mother City’ offers its visitors luxurious accommodation, excellent cuisine, gorgeous natural surroundings and some of the best beaches in the world like Clifton and Camps Bay. You will have the opportunity to go on a scenic day trip to Cape Point Nature Reserve, Boulders Beach to see endangered African penguins, or enjoy shopping and dining at the renowned V&A Waterfront. Your boutique hotel, Cape Cadogan, is ideally situated in a trendy neighbourhood, a stone’s throw from the natural wonder of Table Mountain.
You will then move to the elegant Franschhoek Country House and Villas in the heart of the picturesque Cape Winelands. An ideal hideaway for romantics, the Country House is situated on the outskirts of the historic and charming town of Franschhoek or ‘French Corner’. After exploring the beautiful Cape Winelands, Franschhoek’s historic streets and buildings, and enjoying international award-winning wines, it is time to step into Big 5 country.
Your next stop is one of Africa’s biggest and oldest wildlife reserves, the magnificent Kruger National Park. Your accommodation, Simbavati Hilltop Lodge, is set in the spectacular Timbavati Private Nature Reserve – and there are no fences between you and the vast Kruger. Go on daily game drives to encounter Africa’s iconic Big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino), or simply relax beside an infinity pool with sensational views of the great Drakensberg or ‘Mountain of Dragons’.
Conclude your trip of a lifetime at Ilala Lodge, situated in Victoria Falls Town and within walking distance of the biggest waterfall on Earth. Witness the Falls in all its natural glory, explore the town’s vibrant markets, and enjoy tranquil sunset boat cruises on the Zambezi River. Microlight flights, white-water rafting and bungee jumping are available for the adrenaline seekers. Between about February and July, the mighty Zambezi is usually in full flood and you can experience the waterfall at its most roaring pinnacle – a truly dazzling sensory overload.
