Use our trip ideas to inspire your bespoke experience

15 days, three countries and a once in a lifetime adventure, experiencing a selection of sub-Saharan Africa’s highlights in luxury and style.

Begin in Kenya, with a night at one of Nairobi’s charming hotels before flying out to the Maasai Mara. A legendary spot for safari, especially so if we time your trip to coincide with the annual Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra. Whether you choose to stay in a Hemingway-esque camp in the midst of the savannah or a sumptuous lodge overlooking it all, the wildlife experience here is exceptional, and you can look forward to heading out on game drives guided by red-wrapped Maasai warriors, a spectacular hot air balloon flight and more.

Return to Nairobi (with a visit to the wonderful Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage) before flying south to the Zambian town of Livingstone which sits beside the thundering waters of Victoria Falls. Explore both the Zambian and Zimbabwean sides of the falls, soar above them aboard a helicopter and spot hippos wallowing in the Zambezi on a sunset river cruise.

End in Cape Town, one of our favourite cites in the world. You’ll try exciting street food, scan incredible mountain views, have a chance to swim with penguins from a beach, spend some inspirational time spent with our supported community project and have an indulgent day sampling the produce of the Winelands.

The tour takes 3.5 hours including the ferry trip to and from the Island (depending on the boat used as they have different travel times).

You will disembark at Murray’s Bay Harbour situated on the east coast of the Island and take a short walk to buses that will transport you to all the historical sites around the Island. On the way to the buses, you will pass buildings and a high wall built by prisoners during the 1960s.The buildings were used for family and lawyer visits to prisoners.

You will meet your tour guide when you have boarded the busses. The tour guides inside the prison are former political prisoners. They are fully conversant and knowledgeable about the Island’s multi-layered 500 year old history. The tour route includes the graveyard of people who died from leprosy, the Lime Quarry, Robert Sobukwe’s house, the Bluestone quarry, the army and navy bunkers and the Maximum Security Prison where thousands of South Africa’s freedom fighters were incarcerated for years.

Full day privately guided tour of the Winelands

Today you have a full day in the Winelands with one of our expert wine guides.

On a usual tour, the first stop is Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal-lined avenues, and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture.
