Day By Day

Day 1 – Welcome to Cape Town, South Africa

Arrive in Johannesburg for your connecting flight to spectacular Cape Town, You will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. The afternoon is at leisure to soak up the atmosphere of Cape Town and the waterfront area.

South Africa’s “Mother City” is indescribably beautiful, steeped in fascinating history and pulsating to a heady African rhythm. Indeed, few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the mountainous Cape Peninsula spine, which slides into the Atlantic Ocean. A ride in a cable car to the top of Table Mountain, a ferry journey to Robben Island, or a meandering tour through the Winelands will leave you in no doubt that this place is an absolute highlight on any vacation to Africa. South Africa boasts incredibly good weather, gorgeous scenery and fantastic beaches and is one of the most diverse and enchanting countries in the world. Exotic combinations of landscapes, people, history and culture offer visitors a unique and inspiring experience.

Starting Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town
Meals: Breakfast


Day 2 – Cape Town City Tour

This morning you will enjoy the ultimate 'Mother City' experience, designed to orientate and give you a full-color insight into the extraordinary magic of Cape Town. Explore iconic buildings, snatches of its history, and experiences unique to this City. First up, it's the cable car to the summit of the legendary Table Mountain - weather permitting - and from there, you'll be able to see to the end of the world, including the City and surrounding layout of this southernmost tip of Africa. Visit the country's oldest building, The Castle (closed Sundays), and a short distance away, the Company Gardens, both historically fascinating and well conserved. The drive continues past Parliament Buildings, City Hall and the Slave Lodge, and you'll sense the depth of history via their distinctive architecture. Colonial then changes to colorful, as you move up the cobblestoned hills to the Malay Quarter, and marvel at the ice-cream colors of the quaint Bo-Kaap homes. This afternoon is at leisure to explore Cape Town’s Waterfront or enjoy the facilities at the hotel.

Starting Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town
Meals: Breakfast


Day 3 – Cape Point Full Day Tour

Today you will explore the Cape Peninsula, named by early explorers as the 'Fairest Cape'. Traveling along the Atlantic seaboard past some of the most beautiful beaches in the world you arrive at the Cape Point Nature Reserve, where you are able to ride the Funicular to the viewpoint where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. The Cape Peninsula is the thin finger of land in the southwestern most corner of Africa with the city of Cape Town at its head.  As you travel south towards Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, the land gets narrower until the great Indian and Atlantic Oceans combine into one vast southern ocean, with nothing beyond except Antarctica. On leaving the Nature Reserve, proceed to Simonstown, where you stop for lunch (for your own account), as well as a short stop at Boulders Beach. Nestled in historic Simon's Town in South Africa, Boulders Penguin Colony is part of the Cape Peninsula National Park.  Almost 3000 African (jackass) penguins, so called because their call resembles the bray of a donkey, reign supreme amidst rounded rocks and fish-filled False Bay. These endangered, flightless birds are free to roam the seas and return to their private haven - Foxy Beach at Boulders. Make your way back to the city where your full day tour comes to an end.

Starting Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town
Meals: Breakfast


Day 4 – Cape Town to Okavango Delta, Botswana

Depart Cape Town this morning by flight for Botswana which is home to the largest inland delta in the world.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana is the largest freshwater wetland in Africa; in Botswana's arid and unforgiving bush it's an oasis where you'll find one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa – and the beauty is that it is basically a year-round destination for safaris. It is one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas of Africa. The Delta is fed by the floodwaters of Central Africa and covers an area of some 16000 square kilometres. These waters fan out into the Okavango Delta forming a wetland system of beautiful palm-fringed channels, lagoons and islands that support a wealth of fauna and flora alike. Vumbura Plains Camp is a luxury camp situated in a private concession in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. The concession, which is leased from the neighboring community, includes a wide variety of habitats, diverse wildlife and an enormous traversing area of 60,000 hectares.%MCEPASTEBIN%
