Our 13-day Cape Town, Kruger and Victoria falls package is the best way to combine cosmopolitan lifestyle, bush safari, ocean adventures and international travel. During your trip to South Africa and Zambia you will get to experience seeing both the Big 5 and the Marine Big 5, in addition to visiting historic landmarks and natural world wonders. You will also have the option to see African penguins and great white sharks up close.
In Cape Town, our guests are afforded the opportunity to experience the iconic sights and sounds of South Africa’s Mother City, including (but not limited to) Table Mountain, Robben Island, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Stellenbosch winelands and many iconic beaches. Other activities such as shark cage diving and township tours may also be included as optional extras.
After a week in Cape Town, the next stop is the Kruger National Park, and world famous for its abundant wildlife. Here you will spend 4 days enjoying the relaxation and wilderness, in the comfort of a luxury lodge. Luxury Safaris can organize morning and evening game drive safaris, as well as additional activities such as bush walks or spa treatments.
Having fully recharged your batteries and become one with the African bush, you will fly to Livingstone airport at Victoria Falls directly from Nelspruit airport. The next two nights are spent at a luxury hotel/lodge, whilst the days will be spent visiting the falls, enjoying canoe or fishing, taking helicopter tours and relaxing on river cruises. As with all of our packages, every itinerary is customisable and these activities can be tailored to suit each visiting party.
