Day 1 - 4: Cape Town

Arriving at Cape Town International Airport, the family were escorted through customs and immigration into the arrivals hall where they met their driver for their road transfer to More Quarters’ Redcliffe House for three nights. The four-bedroom heritage luxury villa had plenty of space for everyone with a private swimming pool, a sitting room fireplace for cooler days and a beautiful kitchen for cooking together. The perfect spot to live like the locals, the family’s accommodation was minutes from Cape Town’s beaches, cafes, boutiques and galleries. Highlights from their Cape Town visit included a ferry ride to Robben Island, ziplining in Silvermine, the World of Birds and Monkey Sanctuary, Simonstown, two-hour sea kayaking to see the penguins and dolphins, as well as a tour of the Cape Peninsula, Cape Point and Table Mountain.

Day 4 - 5: Southern Kruger

After breakfast and check-out, the family was met and transferred from Redcliff House to Cape Town International Airport for their flight to Johannesburg, then transferred by road to Lion Sands Tinga Lodge where they checked in to a two-bedroom family suite. Tinga epitomises traditional elegance and opens onto river frontage with a camp-style look that is reminiscent of the ‘Out of Africa’ era. Twice-daily game drives could be supplemented with an optional afternoon bush walk.

Day 6 - 7: Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve

Day six saw the family move on to their next lodge in the Sabi Sands for two nights. Hopping onto a transfer to Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, Bassam and Rana and their children stayed in three one-bedroom villas, each with their own private plunge pool. One of Africa’s truly unspoiled wilderness areas, Ivory Lodge hosts just nine waterside villas that meld into a riverscape offering front row seats to much of the reserve’s wildlife. From your bed, deck, private plunge pool, or indeed the guest spa, this is one of the best places to look in on Africa – uninterrupted.

Day 8: End of their journey

After a morning game drive and breakfast, the family departed Ivory Lodge for Skukuza airport for their flight to Johannesburg where they were met by an agent who assisted them with their check-in for their connecting flight home.
