To celebrate our upcoming 25th anniversary we have created the ultimate African safari itinerary, taking in as many of the continent’s wildlife and natural wonders as possible in just three weeks. The result is a spectacular once-in-a-lifetime adventure, stretching from Cape Town to Nairobi (flying exclusively on private charters to each destination), experiencing game drives, helicopter tours and marine safaris while staying in the best accommodations Africa has to offer.

Beginning in Cape Town, you will revel in ocean safaris and dramatic scenery, staying at Ellerman House – a firm fixture for opulent accommodation. You continue to Victoria Falls, taking a helicopter ride over the world’s greatest sheet of falling water, and enjoying this vibrant region for a few days. Once you have sated your Southern Africa wanderlust, you will trek in dense forests to find endangered mountain gorilla families with a Dian Fossey Gorilla fund researcher in Rwanda before heading to Giraffe Manor. After a breakfast to remember, you will be introduced to conservation measures at the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage before entering the Masai Mara National Reserve – undisputedly East Africa’s most famous wildlife destination. Its wide-open plains provide a sanctuary for an abundance of animals like elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, hyena and the Mara’s famous big cats: lion, leopard and cheetah.

Your safari sojourn slowly winds down with a classic white-sand beach escape at Kenya’s Diani Beach. Diani is a coveted destination for beach-goers who want an easy, don’t-make-me-think vacation. Spend your days snorkeling, diving and soaking up the sun before your last two nights at Hemingways Nairobi, a colonial-style boutique hotel harking back to the days when its namesake writer explored East Africa.
