Itinerary

Days 1 – 3: The Mother City

After arriving at Cape Town International Airport you’ll be met & transferred to the V&A Waterfront. Check in at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel for 3 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

Mixing stunning scenery and fine food with landscaped gardens, sizzling summer beaches and flat-topped Table Mountain, Africa’s favourite city opens this comprehensive tour. Cape Town is gaining an international reputation as a holiday classic, and no wonder. Depending on the season, you can go hiking, biking, shark-cage diving, whale watching and swimming with seals. There’s wine tasting in and around the city, a charming penguin colony, wild ocean views and plenty of restaurants and attractions enough to keep everyone happy. You’ll have a comfortable and convenient base at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, set right at the heart of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town’s friendly entertainment and shopping complex. You can eat and socialise nearby and staff will be happy to make any taxi or dining reservations for you.

Days 4 – 6: A 5-Star Sabi Safari

Transfer to Cape Town Airport & a scheduled flight to Nelspruit near the Kruger Park. Road transfer to Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands Private Reserve for 3 nights on a full board basis.

Landing at Nelspruit Airport, you’ll be met and transferred to the Sabi Sands Private Reserve and Savanna Lodge. Set next to the Kruger, the Sabi Sands Reserve is arguably Africa’s best Big 5 destination – you may even see lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino in a single game drive. Spot-lit night drives pick out rarely-seen nocturnal animals while guided walks allow you to see the Sabi’s details close up. Beautiful ‘Out of Africa’ tented suites with private bathrooms provide the accommodation.

Days 7 – 8: A Victoria Falls Retreat

Transfer to Nelspruit Airport & a scheduled flight to Livingstone in Zambia. Transfer by road to Sindabezi Island Camp on the Zambezi River, a few miles upstream from Victoria Falls. Enjoy 2 nights on a full board basis.

A scheduled flight to Livingstone in Zambia gets you to the banks of the Zambezi River – literally: your secluded chalet at Sindabezi is set on a private island with nothing less than Victoria Falls rumbling away a few miles downstream. A honeymoon favourite, the lodge has been designed as a serene retreat and offers massages and spa treatments as well as table-for-two dining. Staff will arrange any activities that you want to do in the area, whether it’s a white-water rafting trip or lazy sunset cruise.

Days 9 – 10: Savute – Place of Predators

Road transfer & border crossing to Kasane Airport in Botswana & a shared charter flight to the Savute region of the Chobe National Park. Check in at Savute Safari Lodge for 2 nights on a full board basis.

An overland transfer takes you Botswana and Kasane Airport where you’ll fly by shared charter to the Savute region of the Chobe National Park. A place of lurking leopards and roving wild dog packs, Savute is most famous for its lions and hyenas which battle for dominance of the game-rich grasslands. It’s also home to Bushman rock art, excellent bird watching and a summer zebra migration. Your comfortable base is Savute Safari Lodge, its chalets set overlooking the flowing Savute Channel; sit back on your private viewing deck and see who comes down to drink.

Days 11 – 13: Into the Okavango Delta

Shared charter flight to the Moremi Game Reserve for 3 nights at Xakanaxa Camp on a full board basis.

Flying south from Savute, you’ll soon notice the wetlands of the Okavango Delta below, gleaming away to the horizon. After landing at a bush airstrip in the Moremi Game Reserve, you’ll enjoy a short game drive on the way to Xakanaxa Camp, a friendly tented camp in a famously rewarding part of the reserve. Elephants regularly pass through camp and antelope are often seen nibbling leaves outside your chalet. Overlooking a hippo-filled lagoon, the camp offers morning and afternoon game drives as well as boating excursions. After sunset drinks you’ll sit down to candle-lit suppers and stories under the stars.

Day 14: The End of the Journey

Shared charter flight to Maun Airport & your onward connection.

After breakfast at Xakanaxa you’ll fly by shared charter to Maun Airport where your safari ends.

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.

Neena
Very helpful good suggestions for holiday ideas always available for questions good organising

Tongazebi was one place we stayed in a tree house amazing and friendly place our safari was in Savanna Lodge an incredible place to stay and amazing safari we got to see the big five and many others birds and animals. All very close you would not believe how close you get to the wildlife.

Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip.
Our expectations were exceled!!! We’ve been to three different Wilderness lodges in Botswana and Zambia. It was more than WOW.
The lodges itself, the service, the food, the kids (8+10) care and the animal world. All the connections by plane, boat and car were perfectly organized. There was always a responsible person waiting for us. We felt very special from the first to the last day. We highly recommend safari-online.com and we’ll do our next Wilderness tour definitely with them.

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! This year we went back to Luangwa and had a terrific six days there. It was very dry so a slightly different environment than in past years when we have found October to be more conducive to wildlife viewing. Walter couldn’t have done more for us!

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

I have a severe intolerance to chemical products such a fabric softener. This can create difficulties when you travel. But the team at Safari Online made sure that all the destinations on our itinerary met our unusual demands. 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!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

I have so many wonderful things to say about Walter and Safari Online that I don’t even know where to begin! 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)
Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. 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!!!!!

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. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. 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)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Gwen (AU)
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. Actually got to see the Big 5 which was perfect. 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.
