Kicking off in Cape Town, known as The Mother City of South Africa, you will spend three nights to explore the picturesque city surrounded by the Table Mountain and discover Cape Fur seals, zebras and endangered penguins.
You will then fly to spend three amazing nights at the five-star Kapama River Lodge in the Greater Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s famous game reserves where you will be taken on a thrilling, twice-daily guided games drives and nature walks with a skilled ranger and tracker to observe the magnificent “Big Five.”
Another highlight is a flight to Zambia and historic Livingstone, gateway to the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Go on walking tour of the magnificent falls stretching over two kilometres – keep a look out for rainbows because of the constant spray at Chongwe and learn about how the falls were formed.
You will also experience a wonderful five-course dinner onboard the Royal Livingstone Express, a 1930’s locomotive train which has been lovingly restored as it trundles across the Zambezi River Valley. Your meal will be imbued with fine, local flavours accompanied by South African wines.
And there’s more. As a fitting finale, you will be transferred to Botswana and embark on the luxury, 14-suite Zambezi Queen, an elegant houseboat for a memorable two-night cruise along the Chobe River. Watch mesmerised as the Zambezi Queen slowly navigates the river while watching herds of elephants on the shore. You will spot buffaloes, lions and zebras who are drawn to the water besides 450 variety of birdlife. During your river cruise, itineraries are flexible so you can choose to laze on board the ship or go on a cultural tour to a remote Namibian village where you meet the local Subiya tribe elders and villagers who will show off their traditional dance.
This is a remarkable, unforgettable adventure you will remember for a very long time.
