Begin with four nights in the Mother City (Cape Town) where you can explore its coastal scenery, Western Cape wildlife (depending on what time of year, we’ll advise you on what to see), culinary and cosmopolitan aspects too, all with our private guides and tours. According to your family’s individual preferences, we’ll be on hand to help you make the most of your time in this vibrant city.

The exclusive Sabi Sands Reserve on the edges of the Kruger National Park is next for four days on safari in this world-famous Big Five game reserve. Track and observe the array of animals on your daily game drives, with other optional activities on offer (hot air ballooning, cultural excursions, bush picnics and sleep-outs) in between relaxing at your luxurious lodge.

Finally, it’s onto one of Africa’s greatest wonders, the Victoria Falls, for your final two nights on the banks of the Zambezi River enjoying your luxury accommodation, and many more thrilling and relaxing activities to take advantage of before your flight home.
