Itinerary

Overview

Your holiday starts off in marvellous Cape Town. Sat between the Southern Ocean and Table Mountain, Cape Town brings together atmospheric neighbourhoods, a glitzy waterfront, the wild Cape Point and some seriously good vineyards. In Cape Town, we include a private guided Peninsula tour and a private guided winelands tour. Every tour is tailored to your interests by our fabulous local guides who pride themselves on knowing the best hidden spots, eateries and cafes in the Cape offering a genuine insider’s take on Cape Town. We also leave a free day to explore, with options to visit Robben Island, enjoy a guided Table Mountain Hike, mountain biking or cycle tour of the City.

From Cape Town, take a direct flight to the Kruger region. Renowned as the premier Southern Africa safari destination, Kruger and its surrounding private conservancies offers world class big five safari. Nottens Bush Camp is one of our favourite camps in Sabi – offering refreshingly sensible prices, superb location and authentic atmosphere. You’ll soon be lost in the tranquil routine of days on safari, enjoying invigorating morning game drives, lounging at camp in the heat of the day, heading back into the bush in the late afternoon before winding down learning the art of the perfect sun downer. If there is a better way to spend your days, we’ve yet to find it.

From Kruger there are direct flights to Victoria Falls. We like to base ourselves at Waterberry lodge a friendly, small informal lodge in a secluded position on the banks of the Zambezi River. It is the perfect base from which to tour the spectacular Falls and broader region. The Falls are the big draw, You’ll drive there in the lodge vehicle and walk the Falls. The vehicle will carry towels when the water levels are high and cool drinks for you to enjoy after your strenuous walk around the Falls. There are also opportunities to enjoy a sunset cruise on the Zambesi with sundowners (recommended), fishing and local village visits (all included in your stay).

This is a tailor-made itinerary. Accommodation is informal, small and friendly offering sensible prices coupled with a very high standard of service and experience. We can suggest serious upgrade options if you would prefer more luxury. This itinerary would combine well with a short stay in the Cape winelands, Hermanus (during whale watching season) and a road trip along the Garden Route should you have sufficient time. Equally you could forgo safari in the Kruger and hope across the border from Victoria Falls in Botswana

Details

Getting there

There are regular flights from UK to Johannesburg Cape Town. There is a daily direct flight from Cape Town to Kruger or good connections via Johannesburg. The flight from Kruger to the Victoria Falls is currently only 5 times a week or via Johannesburg. To reach Victoria Falls, currently the connection is best via Johannesburg with daily flights.

Price includes

Price is based on 2 adults sharing. Family rates depend on the age and number of children, but as a general rule, under 12s sharing same room as adults will pay half the adult rate.

The quoted from price include; return private road transfers from the Kruger Airport to safari lodge, 4 nights in Cape Town at good quality guesthouse with breakfast, return airport transfers and two full day private guided tours, 3 nights on safari with all meals and scheduled shared game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, 3 nights in Livingstone with all meals, return airport transfers and two scheduled lodge activities per day. (Falls visit; sunset, daytime or dawn cruise; fishing; island picnics; guided birding; guided village walk, guided tour of town & local markets

When is best?

This is a lovely choice year round. This price is based on travel in British summer holidays. Safari is best June to October which is the same time of year for whale-watching in Hermanus (two hours from Cape Town). From February to May Victoria Falls will be in full flow, but having said that, when water levels are lower you are able to see the rock formations and the visibility is better.

Is it for me?

This is an excellent choice for couples or families with slightly older children.

Families travelling with younger children should be aware of the amount of travelling involved in this itinerary.

  • A fabulous and memorable holiday to Africa and a big thank you to Lisa at Tourdust for her in depth knowledge and for designing our once in a lifetime trip.

    The original thoughts were to stay in Cape Town and then go on safari. After many discussions and a lot of patience from Lisa we settled on Capetown, a safari in Botswana and Victoria Falls. It turned out to be the most special and amazing holiday that we have been on.

    Cape Town accommodation was great, modern, clean, spacious and close to the V&A. The views at the back were of Table Mountain! We opted for guided tours to Cape of Good Hope and whale watching. Our guide called Chris was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and chatted to us alot and was great with my children.

    Next was Botswana and Muchenje Lodge. The location was fantastic with views over the Chobe river. Right from the start we were looked after so well and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We went on lots of different safari drives from early morning, late evening and all day ones and my favourite was on the river itself as we were able to get really close to the elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Our guides were brilliant (particularly Rambo) and helped us to find all the animals we wanted to see, even the elusive wild dogs and leopards.
    Meals were at set times, which was lovely as it meant we could talk to the other guests and hear about their day and it was nice that some of the guides joined us as well. We also loved the singing and dancing that the staff did after one meal.

    Final destination Zambia and Victoria Falls, where we stayed at Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi. An amazing location right on the river bank.
    We did a guided tour to Victoria Falls and yet again we had a brilliant tour guide.
    From our lodge we did a river cruise, saw a magnificent sunset and we tried our hand at fishing which was great fun.

    I would love to go back to Africa again to visit some other countries and I will definitely use Tourdust again. Thank you so much Lisa.

  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.
