11 Days Splendid Southern Africa Safari
Destinations: South Africa; Cape Town, Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, Zimbabwe; Victoria Falls, Botswana; Moremi Game Reserve, and Okavango Delta.
Explore Southern Africa iconic places. Begin with Cape Town’s flourishing arts, dining, and nightlife scenes. Fly to Sabi Sands Game Reserve, adjacent to South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park, offers a safari experience found nowhere else in the world. Fly into Zimbabwe, and along the way you may see a dramatic sight from many miles away: silvery, towering clouds rising up from the flat brown earth. Finish flourishing in the miraculous Okavango Delta, Africa's last great natural sanctuaries, a pristine and rich wilderness home to vast concentrations of wildlife.
Day 1 & 2: Cape Town South Africa
Welcome to Cape Town in the heart of South Africa's bustling, breathtaking capital city. Nestled between the dramatic peaks of Table Mountain and the roaring Atlantic Ocean, Cape Grace will be our host for the 2 nights stay. Next day we venture to the Cape Penisula, a nuture lover’s dream, we’ll look out at the somehow significant and stirring meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. We’ll head over to Boulders Beach where we will have stunning views of penguins. Later we’ll stroll in the old-style streets of Simon’s town before returning back to the Cape Grace for leisure, dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3 & 4: Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve
The very private, very beautiful Sabi Sand Game Reserve is one of our favourite African places. Adjacent to Kruger National Park, the 240 square-mile Sabi Sand is home to all of Kruger’s famously rich roster of animals, who wander freely between Sabi Sand and the much more humanly thronged national park. Much is rightfully made— by us and by just about every Africa-lover— of the Big Five superstars, who are all here in their charismatic glory. But Sabi Sand’s 140 or so other animal species are equally fascinating: cheetahs, relentlessly crafty hyenas, giraffes, Op Art zebras, and ebullient Cape wild dogs, to mention just a few. Our host for two nights is the Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, deep in the bushveld overlooking a waterhole and an open plain, lies a lodge that pulses to the rhythm of Africa’s heartbeat. This is Bush Lodge, steeped in tradition, vibrant and warm, the Sabi Sabi of “Today”. With a history spanning over 35 years, the lodge has earned a reputation of a “luxury home in the bush”, service excellence and effortless personal attention. The conventional safari style showcases a vibrant and eclectic mix of furnishings and décor garnered from all corners of the African continent.

Day 5 & 6: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
We fly into Zimbabwe, and along the way we may see a dramatic sight from many miles away: silvery, towering clouds rising up from the flat brown earth. The plume of the world’s most colossal cascade, Victoria Falls. we’ll stay at the grand, colonial-era Victoria Falls Hotel, within walking distance of the incredible cataract. The panoramas also figure prominently during afternoon tea, which is served on Stanley Terrace, overlooking the Victoria Falls Bridge that links Zimbabwe to Zambia.

Day 7 & 8: Fly to Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana
You will be transferred by road to Kasane Airport for your charter flight to Moremi Game Reserve. Camp Moremi will play host for our next two nights nestled within a natural riverine forest of teak and ebony trees, twelve tented safari suites have an East-African flavour and a classic touch. Hidden in lush green trees and branches, it feels like you are walking in an African fairy tale forest. Enjoy outside dinners under an amazing starry sky, let a professional staff pamper you with their humour and warmth, dive in the large pool, start your day with homemade pancakes and enjoy excellent elephant, lion and leopard sightings (among many other species). With no Wi-Fi connection, you are truly away from your fast pace life.

Day 9 & 10: Fly to Okavango Delta, Botswana
Our base in the miraculous Delta is beautifully shaded Camp Okavango, tucked away in serene isolation on lush Nxaragha Island. Intimate, recently and lovingly rebuilt, the camp has many charms: unflashy luxury, great dining, and extraordinarily well-designed tents—including a two-bedroom family tent—each raised on a platform with a private deck overlooking the hippo-thronged Delta waters. Camp Okavango is notable for its variety of game-viewing experiences, from canoeing and motorboating in the Delta’s waterways, to guided bush walks on neighbouring islands. All the classic African headliners are to be seen, sometimes unexpectedly.
