Highlighting some of the most coveted experiences Africa has to offer…
GORILLA ENCOUNTERS IN RWANDA
Come face to face with the giant silverback, hidden within the dense forest.
Days are filled with tracking a habituated gorilla group through hauntingly beautiful rain forests. Getting up close to a group as they go about their normal activities is humbling and awe-inspiring. Highlights include a hike to Dian Fossey’s grave, observing endangered endemic golden monkeys and summiting a dormant volcano that provides 360-degree panoramas of the wondrous scenery.
WILDLIFE EN MASSE IN TANZANIA
The greatest spectacle in the natural world, the migration across the Serengeti.
The legendary Serengeti is the outstanding backdrop for The Great Wildebeest Migration, where millions of animals gather with the potential for dramatic action as predators thrive off the throngs of antelope and zebra. A hot air balloon safari allows for silent aerial game viewing as millions of animals gather. A photographic marvel and never-to-be-forgotten experience.
MIGHTY VICTORIA FALLS IN ZAMBIA
A world heritage site and largest curtain of falling water on earth.
A jaw-dropping arrival by helicopter transfer over Vic Falls sets the tone. Activities include an afternoon river canoe followed by a pampering at the spa, a sunset cruise along the impressive Zambezi River, a genuine elephant interaction and gourmet dinner on the river deck prepared with local Zambian ingredients. One of Africa’s most distinctive natural wonders.
BIG 5 SIGHTINGS IN THE SABI SAND
Big Five: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard, the Holy Grail of African Safaris.
What begins as a list turns out to be an experience that engages all your senses. The thrill of a leopard kill as she drags an antelope up high into the fork of a tree. The roar and superiority of a pair of mating lion. Standing off with a surly group of old buffalo males. The quiet majesty of elephant in motion. The vibrations as a rhino rubs on his favourite anthill scratching post. Each day, each hour, each animal is different. You will never tire of spending time with the Big 5.
COLOURFUL CAPE TOWN, JEWEL OF AFRICA
Beaches, winelands, culture, cuisine; centred around iconic Table Mountain.
Africa’s southernmost city has something for everyone. Memorable activities include whizzing along the renowned Chapman’s Peak to Cape Point, enjoying seaside sundowners, and kayaking with penguins. A day in the Cape Winelands; stopping off for private tastings and an exclusive lunch with a well-known winemaker. A cooking class with a local celebrity chef and a picture-perfect sunset picnic dinner at the top of world wonder Table Mountain.
