Itinerary

Days 1 – 4: Secret Cape Town

Arrive at Cape Town International Airport & transfer to Welgelegen Guest House in Cape Town. Check in for 4 nights on a bed & breakfast basis – tour includes full-day Cape Point & Table Mountain experiences.

The Mother City is an easy destination to explore yourself but with a private nature guide at your disposal for two days, you’ll see a different side to Table Mountain and Cape Point – better views, more wildlife and fewer other people. A guided Table Mountain hike and Cape Point nature tour are part of the itinerary for this tour, leaving you with time to visit the Winelands or visit Robben Island too. Welgelegen Guest House is your boutique base from which to enjoy your time here; it’s conveniently located a short stroll from great restaurants, and it’s only a 10-minute drive to the V&A Waterfront or Camps Bay.

Days 5 – 7: A Sabi Safari

Fly from Cape Town Airport to Nelspruit near the Kruger Park. Transfer by 4X4 into the Sabi Sands Private Reserve & Umkumbe Safari Lodge for 3 nights on a full-board basis. Enjoy game drives & guided walks.

A direct flight from Cape Town to the Kruger’s Nelspruit Airport takes you into the private Sabi Sands Reserve where your transfer quickly becomes a game drive on entering the reserve. The Sabi offers some of Africa’s most reliable and close-up Big 5 game viewing, and with three nights here, you’re bound to have great sightings of lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. You’ll head out on morning and afternoon game drives as well as spot-lit evening drives and late-morning walks, led by some of the best guides in the business. Back at camp, your chalet has its own bathroom and veranda; meals are served under the stars whenever possible.

Days 8 – 9: To the Smoke that Thunders

Fly from Nelspruit to Livingstone Airport in Zambia. Enjoy an assisted transfer across the Victoria Falls border into Zimbabwe & Imbabala Safari Lodge, set on the Zambezi River. Check in for 2 nights on a full-board basis plus game drives & boat safaris.

You’ll catch your first sight of Victoria Falls as you pass over the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe but your first destination is upstream – Imbabala Safari Lodge, set close to the Botswana border in classic elephant country. You’ll explore the Zambezi River and its teeming hinterland by 4X4 and river boat when you’ll be on the lookout for hippos and crocodiles. The area is especially productive in the long dry season when great numbers of thirsty animals gather at the Zambezi, attracting big cats and wild dogs.

Days 10 – 11: Paddle the Zambezi River

Enjoy a tour of Victoria Falls before setting off on a guided Zambezi River canoe adventure; 2 nights of catered camping on a full-board basis.

After viewing Victoria Falls – ‘the Smoke that Thunders’ – close up, it’s time to see a calmer side to the Zambezi River: the slow-moving reaches of the Upper Zambezi, studded with forested islands and ringing with birdsong. For the next two and a half days you’ll move at the pace of the river, gently paddling downstream while your guide points out birds and other animals. You’ll spend both nights camping on the banks of the Zambezi, safe and comfortable in well-equipped tented camps with experienced guides and staff.

Day 12: A Jumbo-sized Finale

Transfer from the end of the canoe trail to The Elephant Camp, located just outside the town of Victoria Falls. Enjoy 1 night on a full-board basis.

Arriving at Victoria Falls late in the afternoon, your canoe journey ends but Africa isn’t quite finished. You’ll be staying at The Elephant Camp, an excellent tented safari camp set on a private reserve overlooking the town and Victoria Falls. There’ll be time for a visit to the elephant sanctuary and some unforgettable interaction with these gentle giants, elephants that have been orphaned and raised in the sanctuary.

Day 13: The Journey Ends

Transfer to Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls Airport for your onward connection & the end of the tour.

The day starts with breakfast at The Elephant Camp followed by a morning tour of Victoria Falls before you continue by road to Victoria Falls Airport for your onward connection and the end of the tour.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)

We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.
