At a glance

Fifteen 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, see penguins, spend some inspirational time spent with our supported community project and have an indulgent day sampling the produce of the Winelands.

With your expert local guide, you will walk the streets of Cape Town and experience its history, its people and its gourmet delights.
