Your Itinerary

  • Fly overnight to Victoria Falls via Nairobi.

  • Upon arrival in Victoria Falls, you’ll check in for the flight to Hwange, where you’ll meet your tour manager on arrival and make the transfer to your four-star tented safari camp. This afternoon, lunch and an included game drive will whet your appetite for a fantastic adventure ahead.

  • Join your guide for a full-day excursion into the park, with included picnic lunch. Hwange is Zimbabwe’s biggest national park, and is home to over 100 species of mammals, including the Big Five, African painted dogs and 45,000 elephants.

  • Rise and shine early this morning for a final morning game drive, arriving back at the lodge in time for breakfast.

    Later you’ll be transferred back to Hwange airport for the short flight to Kariba, the embarkation point for your three-night cruise. Lake Kariba was created by damming the Zambezi River to flood the Kariba Gorge and is the largest manmade lake in the world!

    Settle into your comfortable cabin before lunch is served onboard and you cruise across the lake towards Matusadona National Park, located on the southern shore of Lake Kariba.

  • After a light breakfast, a tender boat will take you out to explore the bays and flood plains of the Matusadona National Park. You’ll return to the main boat mid-morning and enjoy a breakfast brunch on board as you cruise to Gordon’s Bay.

    On arrival in Gordon’s Bay you’ll once again have the chance to board a smaller boat for game viewing or fishing.

    You’ll return to the houseboat in time for dinner.

  • Spend this morning either game viewing or fishing from a small tender boat.

    Return to the houseboat once again for brunch served on board as you cruise to Sampakaruma. Here, you’ll have the chance to enjoy some fun fishing from a small tender. You’ll also have the chance to view a final Lake Kariba sunset from the middle of the lake.

    The final night on the houseboat is celebrated with a beach braai dinner and the chance to do a spot of star gazing!

  • Enjoy breakfast this morning as you cruise back into Kariba Harbour, where you'll disembark. Transfer to Kariba airport for the short flight to Victoria Falls. Check-in at your boutique hotel and enjoy an afternoon at leisure, perhaps exploring the historic town. Alternatively, choose from several optional activities locally, including a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River or a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls.

  • Today an undoubted highlight of your tour awaits: a visit to Victoria Falls. Wander the jungle-clad walkways to make the most of the different viewpoints. Explorer David Livingstone rightly said of the falls: “No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England.” After the tour, return to the lodge for lunch, followed by an afternoon at leisure.

  • Rise and shine early this morning to catch your flight to Cape Town. Upon arrival, meet your guide and transfer to Franschhoek, the culinary capital of South Africa. Unpack and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, exploring at your own pace.

  • Enjoy a guided walk of the town before you board the Franschhoek Wine Tram. This double-decker, open-air tram will take you through the rolling patchwork of vineyards that is the Franschhoek Valley, stopping at the Rickety Bridge Wine Estate, for wine-tasting and a two-course lunch. This evening, enjoy dinner at your leisure in Franschhoek.

  • Transfer to Cape Town, where an included orientation tour will bring this fascinating city to life, followed by a cable car ride to Table Mountain, for a simply unforgettable view. Perhaps you may wish to toast your trip to Table Mountain with the addition of the optional glass of sparkling wine?

    After the tour, check-in at your new hotel. You can spend the afternoon at leisure.

    Please note: the cable car ride to Table Mountain is weather dependent and may be offered on another day if required.

  • Join your tour manager for an included tour of the Cape Peninsula, a stunning stretch of coast dotted with picturesque villages. Call at the penguin colony at Boulders Beach, where you can choose to paddle with these wonderful animals, then make a photo stop at Llandudno lookout point, before (weather-permitting) continuing to Chapman’s Peak, on one of the world’s most breath-taking coastal drives.

    This evening, enjoy an included farewell dinner on Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront – the perfect way to round off a marvellous adventure!


  • Enjoy a day at leisure or opt to join the optional helicopter flight over Cape Town, before transferring to the airport for your overnight return flight, via Nairobi.

  • Early morning arrival.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.

  • A visa is not required for UK citizens travelling to South Africa, but your passport must be valid for six months beyond the date of entry to the country and have two adjacent blank pages. A Kaza Unvisa is required to obtain entry to Zambia and can be used for entry into Zimbabwe. This can be obtained upon arrival in Livingstone at a cost of 50 US dollars per person. This must be paid for in cash - ensure you have the correct amount handy in US$ when you arrive. The visa is valid for up to 30 days.

  • Visit to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

  • If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

  • The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made. In many developing countries access is sometimes not as easy as at home. Should you have walking difficulties, getting around monuments and attractions may be harder and, in some cases, impossible. Should you have any concerns whatsoever please do contact us prior to travel.

  • Requirements and advice can vary over time, and from person to person, so please contact your GP about eight weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations or any other preventive measures.

  • Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

  • In developing countries road networks are continually being improved and expanded, which can mean that, from time to time, roadworks and rough road surfaces can extend journey times. Some journeys are made on winding mountain roads and passes, which may also make for slow travelling - although the scenery is usually worth it! Many roads do not have separate pavements or safety barriers, and great care should be taken when crossing or walking alongside roads.

  • Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure. The order of the itinerary may vary, but the overall content and tour duration in Africa will always be maintained.
