Days 1 – 3: Moremi Magic
The Moremi Game Reserve protects much of the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s greatest wildlife destinations. You’ll fly in by shared charter from Maun Airport, touching down in the Xakanaxa region, long famous for the quality of its game viewing. Hosted by the ever-friendly staff at Camp Moremi, you’ll explore the area on morning and afternoon game drives as well as by mokoro, the delta’s traditional canoe, steered by a local guide. Elephants, lions and hippo are among the heavyweights here but you’ll also be on the lookout for leopard, wild dog and rare antelope such as sable and roan.
Days 4 – 6: Land of Giants
It’s a short flight from Moremi to Savute, the central region of the Chobe National Park. It’s a much more open and drier landscape here, dominated by local waterholes and the Savute Channel. You’ll be collected at the airstrip and taken to Savute Safari Lodge, its luxurious chalets overlooking the channel itself. It’s prime big game country here and the focus is on game drives with expert guides. Predators are something of a Savute speciality as are the area’s bull elephants, enormous grey battleships that roam Savute’s woodlands. In summer, birthing impala herds and a zebra migration adds to the drama.
Days 7 – 9: The Smoke that Thunders
You’ll reach Tongabezi Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River via shared air charter and overland transfer across the border into Zambia. Regarded as the discerning traveller’s choice of accommodation at Victoria Falls, Tongabezi is home to superb river-facing suites and boasts an idyllic, secluded setting a few miles upstream from hustle and bustle of the waterfall. Book yourself a massage and a private dinner before heading off to explore – not for nothing is Victoria Falls known as Africa’s Adventure Centre and you have everything from white-water rafting, bungee jumping and elephant-back safaris to choose from.
Days 10 – 12: A Private Big 5 Safari
A flight to South Africa and an overland transfer from Nelspruit Airport take you to the welcoming atmosphere of Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands. A collection of privately-run game reserves adjoining the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sands delivers Africa’s best Big 5 game viewing in an exclusive setting with the added advantage of being able to offer spot-lit night drives and guided walks too. You’ll enjoy tented chalet accommodation at Savanna, a well-appointed timber and thatch lodge with a pool, landscaped gardens, a gym and plenty of comfortable chairs overlooking waterholes.
Days 13 – 15: At the Heart of the V&A
The Mother City is your final destination on this Grand Tour and you have prime position at the super-safe V&A Waterfront. The V&A Hotel lies at the heart of it all, a short stroll to the Robben Island Ferry, Two Oceans Aquarium and every shop and restaurant you could need. Take your time to settle in and plan the next few days – there is the Boulders Beach penguin colony and Cape Point to fit in as well as a trip up Table Mountain and, depending on the season, shark-cage diving and whale watching too. Be sure to sample some of the Cape’s wines on a trip to the Winelands or visit the city’s museums and historic districts on a walking tour.
Day 16: The Journey Ends
After breakfast at the V&A you’ll be transferred to Cape Town International Airport for your onward connection.
