Travel date: Calendar
D1: Cape Town airport - Cape Town
Meet and Greet • Table Mountain Aerial Cableway (o)
 -Meet and greet at Cape Town International Airport. This personalised service sees your guide meet you off your flight. While you enjoy a complimentary beverage, our guide will explain your itinerary in detail, give you general advice and information that will help you along your trip. Before handing over your travel documents and escorting you to your onward transportation, our guide will assist you with any queries you may have before you embark on your holiday.
 -Pick up your vehicle Europcar SA Classic Plus Cover Category D (1-6days) at Cape Town airport - Drop Off Cape Town airport (Day 4) - 4 days Special conditions
 -Marvel at the views of Cape Town from the aerial cableway and plateau on Table Mountain. The Mother City is synonymous with the striking mountain that is flanked by Devil’s Peak to the east and Lion’s Head to the west, providing a dramatic backdrop to the city. Table Mountain holds an unusually rich biodiversity and forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a protected area. Rock hyrax, or dassie as they are locally known, are often seen scampering through the scrub and the views from the summit over Table Bay, Robben Island and the Atlantic seaboard are breathtaking. The cable cars depart every 10 to 15 minutes and rotate 360 degrees as they travel up to 302 metres above sea level, giving passengers panoramic views over the city. Five minutes is all it takes to reach the summit and once there you can marvel at the views, have a bite to eat in the restaurant or do a bit of shopping at the extensive curio shop. The cableway only operates when weather permits. (Optional rates: D1:Table Mountain Aerial Cableway)
 -Overnight: Compass House Boutique Hotel (Luxe room - Bed and Breakfast)
Itinerary day photo
D2: Cape Town
Snorkeling with the Seals(o) • Cape of Good Hope National Park(n) • Champagne at Cape of Good Hope(i)(o) • Boulders Beach(n) • Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens(n)
 -Breakfast
 -Snorkel with Cape fur seals. Enjoy an exceptional dive experience as you frolic through the waves with a colony of Cape fur seals at Duiker Island in Hout Bay. Here the Atlantic Ocean is quite cold and the island is surrounded by a shallow kelp forest that keeps predators such as Great White Sharks away, making diving safe and protected. Cape fur seals only occur along the coastline of southern Africa and Duiker Island forms part of a protected marine park that is home to approximately 8 000 of these friendly creatures. Seals are one of the most playful of the ocean mammals and will interact and engage with you as you take to the water. View these inquisitive ocean dwellers in their own habitat and return home with extraordinary memories to share. (Optional rates: D2:Snorkeling with the Seals)
 -Visit the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, recognised globally for its extraordinary land formation, rich and diverse fauna and unique flora. The legendary Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope were key beacons for the early explorers and are the source of many myths and legends. In 1488, Bartholomew Dias named the peninsula the Cape of Storms. King John II of Portugal later gave it its actual name. The Cape of Good Hope is a scenic wonder, where soft white sandy beaches alternate with rugged stretches of rock and breathtaking cliffs. (#)
 -Sip on a glass of sparkling wine at the Cape of Good Hope. Conclude an epic discovery of one of the most notoriously dangerous yet outstandingly beautiful coastlines in the world as you savour South African sparkling wine while perched on the rugged cliffs of Cape Point. Absorb the aromatic scent of the fynbos that surrounds you and listen for the scratching and calls of small wildlife that inhibit the mountainous terrain while watching the mesmerising view of the mighty Atlantic Ocean crashing and frothing below you. (Optional rates: D2:Champagne Cape of Good Hope)
 -Get acquainted with African penguins at Boulders Beach. Named for the large, smooth, round boulders that form this coastline, Boulders Beach is one of the few remaining locations in the country where African penguins are able to roost and nest without interference from humans. While the beach itself is a popular bathing spot, it is equally shared with these black and white marine birds that are frequently seen sunning themselves on the rocks or taking a dive into the coolness of the Atlantic Ocean. The adjacent fynbos area holds their delicate nesting grounds, and raised, fenced walkways allow visitors to enter the area without disturbing the birds. Look for nests hidden in the sand and among the scrubland as breeding pairs carefully nurture and protect their eggs. African penguins are classified as endangered species and Boulders Beach is the only location in the world where humans can get close to these birds in their natural habitat. (#)
 -Discover Cape flora of every variety at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. Delve into the immense wealth of biodiversity as you explore the Fragrance, Medicinal and Water Wise Gardens. Highlights at Kirstenbosch include the Peninsula Garden, containing many of the 2 500 plant species found on the Cape Peninsula, and the Protea Garden with numerous displays of the king protea, South Africa's national flower. The gardens were established in 1913 to promote, conserve and display the extraordinarily rich and diverse flora of southern Africa and today there are over 7 000 species in cultivation. Kirstenbosch is a World Heritage Site, covering 36 hectares set within a 528 hectare estate that contains protected mountainside supporting natural forest and fynbos along with a variety of animals and birds.

D3: Cape Town
Franschhoek Tour with Museum and Memorial(n) • Tram Tour(o) • Stellenbosch Orientation(n) • Stellenbosch Village Museum(n)
 -Breakfast
 -Discover the wine producing village of Franschhoek. This charming town lies nestled between steep mountain slopes just outside Cape Town, situated in the heart of the Cape’s wine producing region. It is world-renowned for the excellent wines produced here and it is also regarded as the food and wine capital of South Africa, with its streets lined with many cafes and restaurants. Franschhoek was originally established by French Huguenot settlers in the late 1600s and your tour will include a visit to the Huguenot Memorial Museum, displaying a large number of artefacts that illustrate the early life of the Huguenots, and the beautiful French-inspired Huguenot Monument, dedicated to the cultural influences that the Huguenots brought to the Cape Colony. Enjoy strolling through tree-lined streets and exploring art galleries, organic markets, boutiques and award-winning restaurants. (#)
 -Depart from Franschhoek station and climb aboard a tram for a tour of the Franschhoek wine region. The Franschhoek Valley is home to some of the oldest and most distinguished wine estates in South Africa and is also an area of immense scenic beauty and splendour. The tram tour is one of the best ways to sit back and enjoy the true essence of Franschhoek as you stop at various wine estates to savour wine tasting at your leisure. Depart the tram when the fancy takes you to have lunch, stroll through the vineyards or sample some wines and then simply pick the tram or bus up again when you are done. The open-sided tram takes passengers right into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a narration focusing on the history of village and wine cultivation. (Optional rates: D3:Franschhoek Wine Tram)
 -Wander through the oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch. Lying at the foot of the Simonsberg mountains and within the grandiose Cape Winelands, Stellenbosch is internationally renowned for its award-winning wines, fantastic restaurants, trendy culture and historic buildings. The town is the perfect place to explore on foot with its many side-walk cafes and buzzy student vibe, owing to the large and prestigious university that is an icon of Stellenbosch culture. Many leading wine estates are found here including Spier, Tokara and Delheim, as well as some of the country’s best restaurants where dining can be an informal al fresco affair or something more elegant and black tie. Art lovers can explore the copious galleries while outdoor enthusiasts have plenty of nature activities available to them at Jonkershoek. (#)
 -Relive history at the Stellenbosch Village Museum. The historic village of Stellenbosch was developed around a Cape Dutch style town and the Stellenbosch Village Museum is composed of four different period houses, each representing the way people lived at that time and a different era in the architectural development of Stellenbosch. The Schreuder House was built in 1707 and depicts a modest pioneer cottage while the Bletterman House is a Cape Dutch H-shaped dwelling and an example of a gabled house from the 18th century. The Grosvernor House is a grand old mansion, whose furniture is indicative of the increasing influence of British taste on local design when neo-classicism was at the height of fashion. End your journey through time at the O.M. Bergh House, reflecting a typical middle-class Stellenbosch home during the mid-1800s. Guests may also stroll through the V.O.C. Kruithuis, the only remaining powder magazine in South Africa. (#)

 -Travel to North Natal
 -Morning activity
 -Admire the contrasting landscape of Lavumisa while traversing Swaziland. This tiny, independent country is locked between the provinces of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, and Mozambique. The plains in the south-western part of Swaziland contrast sharply with the mountainous landscapes of the north and here you will discover lush sugarcane fields alternating with bush savannah dotted with Swazi kraals. Near the southern border post of Lavumisa, the Lubombo Mountains loom majestically in the near distance. This sweeping mountain range covers practically the entire eastern side of the country and forms the natural border between Swaziland and Mozambique. (#)
 -Wax lyrical about the Swazi candlemakers at Malkerns. From its humble beginnings in an old cowshed the Swazi Candle Factory today exports beautiful candles throughout the world and holds the esteemed reputation of producing an amazing assortment of handcrafted wax wares. On any given weekday you will be able to view the approximately 200 craftspeople as they go about the process of moulding the pigmented wax into fascinating shapes and sizes, ranging from traditional shaped candles to African animal forms.

 -Traverse the mountains towards Piggs Peak. Tucked away in the north western corner of Swaziland, Piggs Peak is a region once made famous for its spectacular gold mining and now an important supplier of timber. The beautiful mountainous landscape has led to the area often being referred to as the ‘Switzerland of Africa’, filled with sparkling waterfalls, three of the highest peaks in the Kingdom of Swaziland, Bushmen paintings, nature reserves and picturesque indigenous bushland. The town itself is filled with colourful African art and craft shops while slightly further afield you will find the historic Bulembu village, Emlembe, the highest mountain in Swaziland and the Maguga Dam. (#)
 -Arrival at Paul Kruger Gate, the main entrance to the southern section of the Kruger National Park.

Day Tour: Jo`burg, Soweto and Apartheid Museum FD(o) • Transfer • Meet and Greet • Transfer • Flight: Falls by helicopter(o) • Cruise: Sunset
 -Breakfast
 -Orientate yourself with greater Johannesburg on a full-day tour of Johannesburg, Soweto and the Apartheid Museum. Your explorations begin in the heart of bustling Johannesburg, the third largest city in Africa, as you seek out landmark buildings such as the Hillbrow Tower, one of the tallest towers in Africa, the sky-scraping Ponte City, Sentech and Carlton Centre Tower and the multi-million rand Nelson Mandela Bridge. South of city you will find the Apartheid Museum that showcases the notorious system of racial discrimination that became synonymous with South Africa from 1948 until 1994 when the country’s first fully democratic elections were held. The museum has two entrances labelled ‘white’ and ‘non-white’ giving visitors a tiny taste of some of apartheid’s prejudiced rules. More serious overtones to this system of racial classification can be observed inside the museum with harrowing personal testimonials and historical facts. Your tour rounds off with highlights of Soweto such as the match box houses, FNB “Soccer city” Stadium, Hector Pieterson Memorial, Vilakazi Street and Mandela House. (Optional rates: D12:Joburg, Soweto & Apartheid Museum FD)
 -Transfer from Johannesburg to Johannesburg OR Tambo
 -Flight Johannesburg - Victoria Falls (Eco Class) One way (Optional rates: D12/14:Flight Johannesburg-Vic Falls-Johannesburg)
 -Meet and greet at Victoria Falls Airport. Our guide will be waiting for you in the arrival hall carrying a branded sign board before and transfer you to your hotel.
 -Transfer
 -Arrival at Victoria Falls, one of the most famous landmarks in the world and visited by thousands of tourists every year, yet the town of the same name remains small and filled with plenty of old-world frontier charm. Victoria Falls town is bright and friendly and a great place to browse craft markets and collect souvenirs of your African travels as you take some time to absorb the atmosphere and pick up a greater sense of the African cultures and the rich history that have shaped the Victoria Falls over time. Wildlife lovers may need to look no further than right in front of them as animals are known to roam the streets with cheeky baboons hanging around in the trees and occasionally even an elephant or two strolling across the road to the nearby Zambezi River.
 -Marvel at the wonder of natural forces with a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls. Your 12-minute adventure will get your heart racing and your eyes captivated on the scenes below as you take to the skies and begin your flight over the Zambezi River. This river is the fourth longest in Africa and surrounded by pristine wilderness that is especially beautiful to observe from above, with many islands and channels through which the crystal-clear water winds its way. The Batoka Gorge, lying just below the Victoria Falls, showcases stunning, deep chasms that cut into the earth before you arrive at the highlight of your trip, the falls themselves. This flight is often referred to as ‘the flight of angels’, and as you float through the misty spray and rainbows created by the thundering falls you will feel as if you are indeed in heaven. (Optional rates: D12:Falls by helicopter)
 -Soak up the beauty of Africa on a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. The immense, calm waters of the Zambezi River lend themselves to leisurely boat cruises amongst the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding wilderness. From your lodge you will be taken to the jetty and begin your sailing journey upstream from the Victoria Falls. As you peacefully drift along the river you can admire the splashes of colour that the setting sun paints in the sky as well as watch the wildlife that congregates along the river banks in the coolness of the evening. Your wondrous cruise is rounded off with aperitifs and snacks served on board the boat.

Chobe day trip(o)
 -Breakfast
 -Head to Botswana for a day trip to the renowned Chobe National Park. Once a big game hunting ground and visited by famous historical names such as David Livingstone, the Chobe National Park is still today one of the most visited wildlife destinations in Africa; however, now with conservation at its core. Most famed for its huge herds of elephants and buffalos, as well as a large number of lions who have learned to prey on them, Chobe offers a classic African safari experience with many scenic highlights. After a transfer to the Kazungula border where you will meet your Botswana guide, guests proceed straight to the Chobe River for a splendid morning of game viewing along the river banks. The beautiful river is a magnet for all varieties of wildlife and birds that include prolific herds of antelope, sharp-eyed fish eagles and a myriad of waders and herons.

Falls: Zimbabwe Side • Transfer
 -Breakfast
 -View one of the world’s natural wonders on a visit to the Zimbabwe side of the Victoria Falls. This enormous sheet of falling water was first discovered by David Livingstone in 1855, although it had been known to the local people for much longer than that. It is shared by two countries, Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south. Around two thirds of the falls are located on the Zimbabwe side and this country is also considered to have more classical views of the mains falls with footpaths leading you to breathtaking viewpoints such as Devils Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the very popular Rainbow Falls. The sights from here are considered some of the best on the planet while the sheer force of the tumbling water is a sensory treat as water plunges and tumbles, sending sprays of mist up into the skies.
