Overview

Perfect for adventurous couples and fun-seeking families who like to explore at their own pace, this exciting journey takes in three of South Africa’s best-known destinations. You will begin in Cape Town where the use of a rental car gives you the freedom to explore the aspects of the city that intrigue you most, whether it is a scenic drive to Cape Point, a trip to the beautiful Winelands or a day trip to see southern right whales in season (from about August).

No Southern African holiday is complete without a Big 5 safari experience, which you will enjoy in the world-famous Kruger National Park. This massive conservation area is known for excellent Big 5 sightings and your guides will try their utmost to seek out the lions, leopards and elephants that call this remarkable place home.

Your final destination is Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Here, your lodge is located within walking distance from the Falls, and the time is yours to enjoy all that the adventure capital of Africa has to offer! Try your hand at white-water rafting, bridge swinging, sunset cruises on the river and marvelling at the largest sheet on falling water on earth.

Your tour starts at Cape Town International Airport and ends at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, and all flights and transfers between these destinations are taken care of. Accommodation is comfortable throughout, with excellent service throughout.

Itinerary

Day to day

Your self-drive exploration of Cape Town begins after touching down at Cape Town International Airport where you collect your rental car. Driving into the city, you will head to Gardens, a leafy neighbourhood at the foot of Table Mountain, where you will be spending four nights at Welgelegen House on a bed-and-breakfast basis. This comfortable guesthouse is centrally located within easy distance of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. Its Victorian-era architecture offers insight into the country’s history, while modern, Afro-chic interiors hint at South Africa’s diverse cultural heritage.

From your convenient base, you are able to easily explore all that the Mother City has to offer, and all in your own time. Camps Bay, Clifton’s series of sandy beaches and the ever-popular V&A Waterfront are within a short drive away. Other adventures that are well worth having include spending a day out in the Cape Winelands, driving along the Cape Peninsula to its dramatic point, or discovering the Cape floral kingdom at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. In the evenings, return to your tranquil base for a peaceful night, or get ready for dinner in the city – just a hop-and-skip from your doorstep.
