This is one of our favorite itineraries, combining the highlights of South Africa, Victoria Falls and Botswana. Experience fascinating cultural touring, stunning landscapes and luxury safaris in two of the best game-viewing destinations in the world.

Arrive in Cape Town, where you will be met by your private guide for the transfer to the Cape Winelands. Spend two nights at a luxurious retreat in Franschhoek with private touring in the region, including personalized wine tastings at some of South Africa's premier vineyards and a visit to the charming town of Stellenbosch. There will be ample time to explore the town, browse high-end artisan boutiques and indulge in some of the country's most acclaimed gourmet restaurants.

Return to beautiful Cape Town for two nights at one of our favorite luxury properties. 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. Private yacht cruises, scenic helicopter flights, adventure activities, and day trips to Hermanus can also be arranged, upon request.

Next, 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.

Continue to Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Enjoy a private sundowner cruise, a private walking tour of the falls, a scenic helicopter ride over the falls, and an elephant-back safari. Other activities can be arranged as per your interests, such as kayaking on the Zambezi River or a visit to a Mukuni village.

Conclude your tour at Botswana's Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta. The region's network of waterways is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including a large population of elephant, buffalo and red lechwe (antelope). Spend three nights at one of the premier "water camps" in the heart of the delta and enjoy daily wildlife outings by mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) and motor boat rides along the "hippo highways." Return to Johannesburg, where you will be assisted to your international flight.

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