ITINERARY

Day 1: Australia – Cape Town (I/F)

It’s time to embark on your African adventure! Leave Australia for Cape Town today.

Day 2: Arrive in Cape Town

Your adventure starts in one of the most iconic cities in South Africa – Cape Town. Make your own way to the hotel for check-in and spend the remainder of the day at your leisure – perhaps taking advantage of the city’s magnificent seaside location.

Day 3: Cape Town Sightseeing (B, L, D)

Your tour of Cape Town begins with a drive to Cape Point, passing steep mountains, secluded coves and sweeping beaches enroute. After a stop at the fishing village of Hout Bay, you’ll meander along the coast to the Cape of Good Hope; awash with awesome scenery, great bird watching and fantastic walks.

Following the coastline along False Bay back to Cape Town, you’ll savour lunch in Simon’s Town and visit the cheeky penguin colonies at Boulder Beach.

In the evening, enjoy a welcome dinner with your fellow travellers and Tour Manager.

Day 4: Cape Town Tour & Robben Island (B)

Spy Cape Town’s lesser known wonders today, as you drive through the city centre past the stone-walled castle of Good Hope, the baroque-period City Hall and Grand Parade. Passing St. George’s Cathedral and the Church of Nobel Peace-winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu along the way, before arriving at Kloof Nek at the base of Table Mountain.

Ascend to the top with via cable car and at the summit, marvel at the breathtaking views over the Atlantic and enjoy a birds-eye view of the city and its turquoise beaches. Descending from the peak, you’ll head to the historic V&A Waterfront for some free time to enjoy lunch on your own, before boarding a ferry to Robben Island.

This poignant UNESCO World Heritage site reveals the struggles, hope and dreams of freedom of the political prisoners kept there, as made famous by Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment. Tour the island’s infamous prison before returning to the mainland for an afternoon at leisure. Why not cap off your evening with an optional, home hosted dinner?

Optional Activity:

  • Home hosted dinner (AUD $109 per person).

Day 5: Cape Town Free Day (B)

Now that you’ve seen the spectacular Cape Peninsula and mesmerising mountain ranges, why not use this free day to see Cape Town’s plethora of charming villages, such as Bo-Kaap’s brightly painted facades, and stunning wine destinations, such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you could venture out to Hermanus for whale-watching and, for the real thrill seeker, shark-cage diving.

Day 6: Cape Town – Durban – St. Lucia Game Cruise – Hluhluwe (B, D)

Bid totsiens to Cape Town this morning, as you transfer to the airport for your flight to Durban. On arrival, drive to St. Lucia, where you’ll board a game cruise. An estuary of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed iSimangaliso Wetland Park, this stretch of river offers prime viewing to spy Nile crocodiles, hippopotami, sea turtles and even sharks!

If you’re lucky, you might see an eager eagle swoop down to snag its lunch! Afterwards, enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Day 7: Hluhluwe – Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Drive – eSwatini (B)

Have your camera charged today as you continue your wilderness exploration with a game of eye-spy on a Hluhluwe-Imfolozi game drive. Set in the heart of Zululand, Africa’s ‘big five’ (lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, and rhino) thrive here, roaming the flourishing savanna alongside warthogs, antelopes and more.

Following your game drive safari, you’ll cross the border to the Kingdom of eSwatini (also known as Swaziland), driving through spectacular hills and majestic fauna, before stopping at a handicraft market in the afternoon enroute to your hotel.

Please note: eSwatini is an independent country and requires different entry requirements. Please check if a visa is required for entry.

Day 8: eSwatini – Matsamo Village – Hazyview (B, L, D)

Sit back and watch as talented artisans blow a menagerie of African animals, birds and tableware out of recycled glass this morning at the Ngwenya Glass Factory, before crossing the border into South Africa to visit Matsamo Cultural Village.

Immerse yourself in Swazi culture as a native guide enthrals you with the village customs and ceremonies, before which you’ll get see a traditional tribal dance with authentic garb, listen to songs performed with African instruments and share a meal with the tribe. Afterwards, continue to your hotel for dinner.

Day 9: Hazyview – Kruger National Park Game Drive (B, L, D)

As is the custom in the bush, you’ll start the day with a light breakfast of coffee and rusks before embarking on a open vehicle game drive in Kruger National Park. Home to some of the best game and wildlife viewing opportunities in the world, you’ll get a chance to see lions, elephants, giraffe and zebra – you’ll need feline-like reflexes to capture them in action though!

After stopping at a rest camp for lunch, you’ll continue into the wilderness. With any luck, you’ll snag a shot of an elusive cheetah or leopard!. After the day’s excitement, relax by the pool at your hotel before dinner.

Day 10: Hazyview – Panorama Route – Johannesburg (B)

Unearth mountainous vistas, lush green valleys, arid bush and red stone facades today as you explore the Mpumalanga Province along the spectacular Panorama Route.

Afterwards, admire Bourke’s Luck Potholes’ collection of waterfalls and distinctive rock formations, before continuing to Johannesburg.

Day 11: Johannesburg – Soweto Tour (B, D)

Gain a fascinating glimpse into the bustling neighbourhood life of Soweto today; the most metropolitan township in South Africa. It’s here that trends sweep the nation, from politics to fashion, music, dance and even language!

While here, you’ll visit Nelson Mandela’s former home and drive by the former residence of the nobel-prize winner Bishop Desmond Tutu, an anti-apartheid and human rights activist. Continue to the Apartheid Museum, where you will journey through the racial segregation experienced by millions of South Africans, before dinner with your fellow travellers.

Day 12: Johannesburg – Victoria Falls & Sundowner Cruise (B)

Board your flight to Victoria Falls this morning. On arrival, visit this iconic spectacle in person. Known to the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya, the ‘smoke that thunders’, you’ll be left jaw-dropped by this boisterous UNESCO World Heritage-listed wonder.

After you’ve filled an SD card or two, cap off your evening with a sublime sundown cruise on the mighty Zambezi River.

Day 13: Victoria Falls Guided Tour (B)

Embark on a safari walk of Victoria Falls this morning through otherworldly rainforests to the Cataract View where steps lead down to Devil’s Cataract, offering dramatic views of the falls that resemble a rainbow prism effect. Continue trekking through the forested terrain to the Dr Livingstone statue and try spotting the locale’s wide array of birds and plants.

The remainder of the day is yours to explore at leisure. If you’re keen for a serious adrenaline rush, you could tick off your bucket list with a micro flight over the falls, plunge headfirst into the rough of it with water-rafting or even bungee jump into the Zambezi!

Day 14: South Africa – Australia (B)

Exchange numbers with your fellow travellers over breakfast this morning, as you make your own way to the airport for your flight to Johannesburg and connecting flight home to Australia.
