Overview

This 7-day journey combines the refined pleasures of the Queen Victoria Hotel in Cape Town (Africa’s design and gourmet capital), with a sensational Big 5 safari experience at Simbambili, an exquisite lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.

Queen Victoria Hotel is found in the heart of the celebrated V&A waterfront, a cultural and premier shopping hub with the Atlantic Ocean on its doorstep. You will spend three nights at this hotel, famous for its world-class service. Cape Town offers a world of possibility in one destination, from the Cape Winelands and award-winning beaches to the natural wonder of Table Mountain, as well as a plethora of adventure activities.

You will then leave the allure of the city and head to the legendary Greater Kruger, for the next few nights at the Sabi Sands Game Reserve - renowned for its leopard sightings. Simbambili sets the safari lodge benchmark for Moroccan-style elegance and is a romantic hideaway. The lodge is set alongside the meandering Manyelethi River and promises an exclusive safari experience.
