Itinerary

Day 1 - 3:  Kruger National Park 

Check in to your mid-morning flight to Nelspruit's KMI Airport, here you will be collected by the shuttle bus that will take you to Pretoriuskop Rest Camp.

After settling into your accommodations, your first game drive which is operated by SAN PARKS is a sunset drive, which affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are more active at night and the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Note that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with a Park’s ranger. 

Dinner is a three-course meal, served al fresco at your base camp. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

Day 2 & 3: Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! The time you go on your Game Drive varies according to the seasons and camp gate opening times. Tea and cofffee is served with muffins and fruit before departing on the Game Drive which will take approximately 3-4 hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!
On returning to camp, brunch will be ready.

You then have time to enjoy a swim, catch up on some sleep, visit the park shop which includes African curios, general food items and drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply relax! Be sure to bring along your binoculars!

After a siesta set off on the afternoon Kruger Park game drive. All our game drives are conducted in specially adapted 4×4 open game drive vehicles to allow you the best possible vantage point.

Share African safari stories at the campfire under the stars after a scrumptious dinner served at camp.

(On day 2 or 3 you may choose an optional complimentary Panorama Route excursion which departs early in the morning and returns around mid-afternoon. )

Day 4 - 6:  Victoria Falls

You will need to depart the Kruger Park early as you will need to check into your flight at Nelspruit KMI Airport at 9h15 to fly to Livingstone Airport. You will be met upon arrival and transferred by minibus to the Zimbabwean side by crossing the railway bridge and then going on a guided tour of the Falls. Around two thirds of Victoria Falls lies in Zimbabwe (the rest being in Zambia) so you’ll get to see the Main Falls, as well as the Devil’s Cataract, Rainbow Falls and Horseshoe Falls. As you wander through the surrounding rainforest your guide will give you a brief history of Victoria Falls, and share interesting facts about the plants, birds and even animals that you see along the way.

Having admired the falls from every possible viewpoint, you’ll be driven to Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge - a distance of around 70 km. Set on the bank of the Zambezi River, Imbabala is a small and welcoming lodge with nine thatched chalets each opening onto beautiful river views.

Day 5 - Wake up early and start your day with a game drive in the private wildlife concession surrounding Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge. Drives are led by the lodge’s highly skilled guides, who’ll go out of their way to get you good sightings of the park’s elephant, impala, warthog, giraffe and colourful collection of birds.

After the game drive brunch is served on the lodge lawns, then there’s time for a nap or laze in your hammock before the afternoon river safari. It’s wonderfully peaceful cruising the Zambezi River, drink in hand, as you drift up close to hippo, look for elephant at the water’s edge, and watch the sunset paint the sky in shades of orange and fiery red.

Your day ends with drinks around the fire and dinner under the stars, before strolling back to your comfortable chalet with its king-size bed draped in white mosquito netting.

Day 6 - After breakfast you cross over into next-door Botswana to spend a full day in Chobe National Park. Your game viewing begins with a cruise on the Chobe River, an incredible safari experience which delivers regular sightings of hippo, crocodile, zebra, impala and - the stars of the show - Chobe’s famous elephant herds drinking, bathing or even swimming across the river, trunks held high!

After the cruise enjoy a buffet lunch at Chobe Game Lodge, followed by an afternoon game drive. Taking you along the river and deeper into the park, the game drive offers up more sightings of elephant and buffalo as well as the chance of tracking the park’s predators including lion, leopard and even wild dog.

If you’d prefer, you can skip Chobe and spend the day relaxing at Imbabala Lodge or enjoying some of the other activities on offer: go fishing for toothy tiger fish or set off on a guided walking safari in the private concession.

Day 7 -9: Cape Town 
You are transferred immediately after breakfast from Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge to Victoria Falls Airport for your 11h45 flight to Cape Town.

You will be met at the airport and transferred to the Portswood Hotel which is ideally situated inside the V&A Waterfront, restaurants, shops and a number of experiences are all within walking distance of the hotel.

Day 8 - After a buffet breakfast, a City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off Cape Town city tour is recommended, an audio commentary will guide you through the places of interest and then take you up to the Table Mountain cableway station, where you take the cablecar to the the top of Table Mountain. Rejoin the bus and travel down to Camps Bay and then back to the V&A Waterfront.

Day 9 - A peninsula tour that takes you along the Atlantic seaboard and onto Hout Bay, then travel along Chapman's Peak to Cape Point, visit the penguins at Boulders Beach then return to the Waterfront via Muizenberg and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Day 10 - End of Journey 

After another delicious breakfast, gather your belongings together, there may be time for some last minute shopping for gifts before you transfer to the airport for your onward flight.
