Experience the best of Egypt and South Africa on this private luxury journey.

First, experience Cairo as an insider. Our Egypt specialists have left no stone unturned in their quest to uncover the city's most interesting cultural attractions, neighborhoods and markets—our tours offer the most in-depth, sophisticated Cairo touring available. In addition to visiting well-known attractions such as the Citadel, Egyptian Museum, Hanging Church and Khan al-Khalili bazaar, also tour our favorite neighborhoods filled with beautiful Fatimid, Islamic, Mameluke, Ottoman, Coptic and Art Deco architecture; well-preserved medieval residences formerly occupied by wealthy merchants; fascinating markets and shopping streets; and smaller, lesser-known museums dedicated to Islamic art, applied arts, Egyptian culture, Impressionist paintings and more.

One day, take a private excursion to the impressive Pyramids of Giza. If desired, attend the impressive Sound & Light Show there one evening. Then fly to Abu Simbel and explore some of the most beautiful Pharaonic temples in existence at the first light of day —the most beautiful time to visit.

Cruise the Nile River aboard a luxury boat and enjoy private tours of the extraordinary archaeological sites such as the Temple of Philae in Aswan, Temple of Horus in Edfu and Valleys of the Kings and Queens in Luxor. Upon request, arrangements can be made to tour monuments usually closed to the public or museums outside of opening hours.

Next, fly to South Africa to embark on a three-night luxury safari in the Sabi Sand Reserve or Singita's private concession in Kruger National Park. These areas are renowned for their diverse wildlife—including the Big Five. Stay at an ultra-luxurious safari lodge and enjoy morning and afternoon game drives and guided bush walks during your stay. If desired, a visit to a local community can be arranged. There will also be time to indulge in spa treatments and enjoy elaborate gourmet meals paired with South Africa's best wines.

Conclude your tour in beautiful Cape Town and stay at one of our favorite luxury hotels. Enjoy comprehensive private touring with one of Cape Town's most knowledgeable guides. Learn about the city's fascinating history and architecture; take a cable car to the top of the iconic Table Mountain; experience local markets, boutiques, museums, and noted African art galleries; and enjoy Cape Town's incredible food and wine scene, including reservations at top restaurants. Depending on your interests, enjoy other highlights, such as Robben Island, Bo Kaap (the Cape Malay Quarter), and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. One day, take a private excursion along the scenic coastal road to the Cape Peninsula and visit the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach and quaint seaside towns. Alternatively, spend a day in the Cape Winelands region and enjoy personalized wine tastings at South Africa's best vineyards and a visit to the charming towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Private yacht cruises, scenic helicopter flights, adventure activities, and day trips to Hermanus can also be arranged, upon request.

Artisans of Leisure can also arrange some of our other preferred luxury safari properties as per your preference, including Royal Malewane, Londolozi, or Ulusaba. Please contact one of our Africa specialists to begin planning your tour.
