Beach, Wildlife & Waterfalls - An epic holiday to South Africa, Botswana, Zambia & Mozambique

16 days from £10,245 per person

If you have time on your hands and are seeking an unforgettable African adventure which leaves no stone unturned, look no further! This bumper-tour begins in the beautiful and bustling city of Cape Town with a stay in the vibrant waterfront development at the lovely 5-Star Cape Grace Hotel. Three nights here provides plenty of time to enjoy this fascinating and stunning city. There are many fantastic day trips available so let us know what is on your Cape wish-list and we can discuss which tours would suit you best during your time here.   

From Cape Town, venture into the heart of the Okavango Delta and embark on a 4-night safari in this remarkable game-rich wilderness. Enjoy a 2-night stay at the water-based Xigera Camp, a wonderful place to enjoy these magical wetlands and to experience the wildlife by boat or traditional dug-out canoe. A short light aircraft hop transports you to Kwando Lagoon Camp where you will be staying for the next 2 nights. The Kwando concession is renowned for its superb wildlife and game drives which are amongst the best in Africa.   

From Kwando Lagoon Camp, a light aircraft will take you to Kasane where you will continue by road over the border into Zambia and on to Tongabezi Lodge which is situated on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. Tongabezi is the ideal base to explore Victoria Falls or to try your hand at white water rafting or just put your feet up and relax with a G & T and enjoy panoramic views over the Zambezi River.

From Tongabezi, a flight to Johannesburg from Livingstone means a stopover at the uber-chic Saxon Hotel for the night. Head off in the morning to OR Tembo International Airport in time for your flight to Vilanculos. A short helicopter flip from Vilanculos takes you to the idyllic island of Benguerra, the largest of the islands in the exquisite Bazaruto Archipelago. 

Stay at the dreamy Azura Benguerra for 5 nights of barefoot luxury, freshly prepared seafood and deserted white powder beaches. From Benguerra, begin your journey home with a helicopter flight to Vilanculos followed by a scheduled flight to Johannesburg in time for your international flight home.
