Prices from $11,299pp

Alternate Text

Enjoy an immersive African experience as you fly into cosmopolitan Cape Town, admire the wilderness of the African bush and take in the astounding beauty of Victoria Falls.

Your African adventure begins as you fly into Cape Town, staying at the spectacular Table Bay Hotel. Conveniently located on the Victoria and Albert Waterfront, you’ll be close to Cape Town’s most exciting bars and restaurants. Getting to know this beautiful city is made all the easier with the Cape Peninsula tour included in your holiday. Cape Town is also famed for its exceptional wines which you’ll get to explore for yourself during a full day winelands tour.

After your stay, you’ll venture deep into the African countryside on board the luxury Blue Train as you make your way from Cape Town to Pretoria, trundling by spectacular scenery and enjoying a real glimpse of Africa. Onboard, your all-inclusive journey embodies style, class and elegance, with a luxury private suite, opulent bathroom and sumptuous bedding. Be treated to fine dining made with local ingredients and an impressive selection of beer and wines all served on delicate crystal or fine china.

More adventures await as you head into the heart of the African bush for a safari experience to remember at a Luxury Lodge. Here you’ll enjoy game drives where you can watch herds of elephants take a refreshing drink at the waterhole, lion cubs play fighting in the shade of a Baobab tree and graceful giraffe grazing peacefully.

Inspired by the myth of a lost kingdom, your next Africa experience takes place at The Palace of the Lost City, a sumptuous hotel set within Sun City, South Africa’s top holiday resort. Surrounded by jungles, streams and waterfalls, the fantasy of an African palace is apparent throughout, from the luxuriously appointed rooms to the mosaics and fountains found within the hotel and its beautiful gardens.

From here, fly to Victoria Falls, where a series of tours will showcase the highlights of this incredible region. First, board a luxury steam train for an adventure through the countryside. Swish through the shimmering African bushveld as the untamed wilderness and local villages stream leisurely past your window. The following day, you’ll explore the Zimbabwean side of the rainbow-framed Victoria Falls on foot with a guide. Your final highlight is a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River. Hear the great roar of wallowing hippos – you might even be lucky enough to spot the resident elephants as they cross the river.
