The iconic Southern Africa tour Luxury South Africa Safari and Victoria Falls

This Luxury South Africa Safari and Victoria Falls itinerary is a journey that plays the classics. And whether it’s the tinkling of ice in a crisp chenin blanc in Cape Town, the growl of a patrolling lion in the Kruger National Park or the thundering roar of the mighty Victoria Falls – it’s all music to our ears. They’re called the classics for a reason, you see.

Your Luxury South Africa Safari and Victoria Falls tour kicks off in Cape Town, where a city with a fine-dining problem meets the great outdoors, with Table Mountain National Park running the length of the peninsula. There’s nowhere in the world that has this enticing combination of intriguing wildlife (from caracals on the mountain to penguins on the beach), jaw-dropping scenery and world-class restaurants. Your stay at More Quarters will be your sanctuary amidst the thrills.

Next, a 2.5-hour flight in an Embraer executive jet will whisk you to Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves. Tinga Lodge is in the heart of the park, and delivers outstanding opportunities to see all the wildlife you’ve come for. The starry wonder of a sleep-out in a treehouse is included here, where you’ll fall asleep to the incomparable sounds of the African bush stirring to life.

Finally, it’s off to the Victoria Falls to marvel at the world’s largest sheet of falling water – and you’re doing it in style at the Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel. No trip to Southern Africa is complete without a pilgrimage to this natural wonder.

  • A food walking tour of Cape Town – because the way to a visitor’s heart is through their stomach
  • The scenic Cape Winelands and wealth of award-winning estates – food and wine pairing never looked this good
  • Seeing – and hearing – magnificent big cats in the wild for the first time, or the second… it never gets old
  • Sleeping out in a treehouse in the middle of Kruger National Park – it’s out-of-this-world romantic
  • Exploring the awe-inspiring Vic Falls and rainforest on foot – you’ll quickly discover why it’s a Natural Wonder of the World

Cool & Unusual

Start this trip at the very tip of Africa, where the ceaselessly crashing ocean currents are as wild and dramatic as the surrounding mountainscapes. End it at the edge of the Natural Wonder that is the Victoria Falls, watching 935 cubic metres of water per second thunder over the precipice.

Break it down Itinerary overview

More Quarters is home for four nights of pure indulgence in Cape Town. Voted the best city to visit by the Telegraph and New York Times, you’re in the ideal spot to discover why. Having your own apartment gives you the chance to live like a local. Check in and head out to explore the urban jungle – award-winning five-star dining is within walking distance.

Start today with a privately guided food walking tour, right from your apartment. To get your taste buds firing, try a samoosa then pop into the neighbourhood spice market. Investigate delis, artisanal bakeries, coffee shops and restaurants, while learning about the city’s historical food-supply station provenance, as well as its captivating architecture and history. Now’s your chance to stock up on wine and other treats for your apartment. There’s also an option to combine this with a trip up Table Mountain today.

Head to the V&A Waterfront, the hub for discovering the treasures of the Cape – from hop-on-hop-off topless bus tours to sunset cruises in Table Bay, and some world-class shopping. Today is ideal for a Peninsula tour – either at your own pace on the bus tour, or book a full-day tour with a specialist guide. Discover the extraordinary beauty of the coastline, take in the dazzling white beaches, and visit an African penguin colony. Your turning point (metaphorically and literally) is Cape Point, the dramatic tip of the peninsula – and the African continent (because we say it is). On your way home, stop in at ubercool Camps Bay for sundowners and a kaleidoscopic sunset.

Today we head to the exceptionally lovely Winelands. Explore Stellenbosch’s historic city centre, followed by a couple of wine tastings and a long lazy lunch, paired with delicious (and deservedly award-winning) wines. Back in the city, the sensory spoils are not quite done. Treat yourself to a fabulous dinner at Pier in the Waterfront, paired with a dark-chocolatey red blend to rival Châteauneuf-du Pape, happily bewitched by the twinkling lights of the working harbour.

Today after breakfast, you have a comfortable 2.5-hour direct flight from Cape Town to Skukuza Airport in the heart of the Kruger. A short drive to Tinga Lodge puts you bang in the middle of sizzling traditional safari territory, right on the Sabie River. You’ll make it in time for your first thrilling game drive and sundowners in the bush. Cheers!

The game drives at Tinga leave early in the morning, and late in the afternoon, when the animals are most active. During the day, especially if it’s warmer, the predators rest up in the shade – which gives you time for your own well-earned siesta. If you weren’t aware, this safari staple comprises a hearty late-morning/midday meal and then time off to rest and relax, think about your morning drive, or this evening’s, read a book, write in your journal, have a spa treatment, or lounge at the pool.

On your last night we dial up the romance a few bars with a very special offering – a sleep-out in the Tinyeleti Treehouse under the Milky Way, on the banks of the Sabie River, listening to the spine-tingling roar of a dominant male lion. Imagine popping the question in this setting… talk about a starry-eyed surprise. Three nights is the perfect amount of time for a safari. It gives you two full days to explore the bush and track animals, and generally soak up the wild otherness of it all.

Today, after your last morning game drive, you head to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport for your direct flight to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Here you stay at the Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel, a beautiful homestead with sprawling gardens. Its homey welcoming feel instantly sets the tone for your Vic Falls exploration.

Vic Falls is considered the adventure capital of the world, and offers almost uncountable experiences – from life-affirming to what feels like near-death to some. The Falls themselves are only 10 minutes from the hotel, and a great place to start. We can also arrange a game drive to explore the nearby national park, or a heli flip – called the Flight of Angels, a nod to David Livingstone’s famous quote – which delivers heavenly views of the Falls and the wildlife in the national park.

All good things should never come to an end. But here you are – packing for your direct flight back to Cape Town and onward journey home. Hope there’s space in your luggage for all the memories. Sara mushe, as we say in Shona. Goodbye. And safe travels.
