Fly from UK to Cape Town
Explore beautiful Cape Town, one of the world’s most handsomely situated cities. With a dramatic mountain backdrop and gorgeous sandy coastline, combined with a glittering waterfront and an intriguing history, it’s understandably first on everyone’s South Africa visit list. While you’re here, take the ferry to the infamous prison at Robben Island, home to Nelson Mandela for 18 years. Now a museum, it tells the fascinating and poignant tale of prison life on this windswept island. Next, head into the glorious Cape Winelands and taste some of the continent’s finest wines.
Kruger National Park
Set off on safari in the world-renowned Kruger National Park, where you have every chance of some dramatic wildlife sightings. Head out in the early morning when the game is most active, and see if you can spot the Big Five –lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino. Return to your lodge at lunchtime, relax by the pool or indulge in a massage, then head back out in the afternoon to catch the animals as they come to cool off at the waterholes. And of course no safari would be complete without an evening sundowner, a refreshing drink or two as the sun goes down.
Board your flight to the next stop, the up-and-coming city of Johannesburg, a modern, cosmopolitan metropolis that has flourished in recent years. Perhaps take a tour of the Soweto Township, where you’ll find the former home of Nelson Mandela, now a museum, or brush up on your South African history with a visit to the moving Apartheid Museum. Alternatively, chill out and relax in your city centre hotel, take a dip in the pool or head just outside for world-class shopping and dining.
Head to the airport for your flight to Zimbabwe, home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. Known in the local Kololo language as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, the ‘Smoke that Thunders’, the Falls are quite a sight to behold. This World Heritage site offers a range of activities, from relaxing boat trips and romantic sunset cruises, to nerve-racking cliff edge swimming (low water levels only) and exhilarating bungee jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge. For something special, splash out and feel the spray as you soar above the water and view the zig-zagging cataract of the Falls Gorge on the iconic Flight of Angels helicopter ride.
