Destination & Sightseeing

ITINERARY

Day 1 - Arrive Cape Town, South Africa
Arrive in Cape Town, a breathtaking harbor city where old and new converge in history, architecture, cultural pursuits and the essence of its people. Warmed by the African sun, the city is dominated by the towering, flat-topped Table Mountain, set on a peninsula of rocky heights and lush valleys. An A&K representative transfers you to your luxurious hotel.

Day 2 - Cape Town
Wind your way through the scenic, shrub-dotted landscape to Table Mountain; ascend to its sky-high plateau by cable car for dazzling views of city and sea. Next, venture to old Cape Town, with views of notable buildings, including Groote Kerk (South Africa’s oldest church) and City Hall on the Grand Parade, Cape Town’s largest square. Continue past the pentagonal Castle of Good Hope. Built by the Dutch East India Company as a maritime refreshment station, it later became the center of military life in the cape. When available, stop for an artisan visit at Streetwires, where locals come together to craft unique, handmade wire-and-bead art, now successfully exported to more than 15 countries worldwide. After lunch, visit Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens alongside a private local guide. Set on the southeastern slopes of Table Mountain, this living repository is the only major botanical garden in the world entirely devoted to the flora of its own country. Kirstenbosch features 4,700 species growing on over 1,200 acres of expertly landscaped gardens. At tonight’s welcome dinner, relax as a culinary expert guides you through a progressive, contemporary feast.

Day 3 - Cape Town
Discover Cape Point, the mountainous and scenic promontory at the southwestern tip of the continent. Journey past the “bikini beaches” at the base of the towering Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, along bucolic Hout Bay with its bustling fishing harbor and over the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive. Explore the stunning Cape Peninsula and Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, home to rare bonteboks, chacma baboons and several endemic plant species not found elsewhere. Ride the “Flying Dutchman” funicular to the great pinnacle at blustery Cape Point, which presides over treacherous reefs and sandy beaches. At Boulders Beach, visit its colony of endangered African penguins; accustomed to humans, they provide endless photo opportunities. Enjoy the remainder of your day at leisure, enjoying your hotel, exploring the city’s harbor front and boutique shops, or dining in one of Cape Town’s world-class restaurants.

Day 4 - Greater Kruger Area
Fly to a privately owned, wildlife-rich game reserve bordering Kruger National Park, offering the very finest game-viewing safari experience. This afternoon, once you are settled into your elegant accommodations, Ride Like a Local in search of the Big Five — elephants, lions, rhinos, Cape buffalo and leopards — and other wildlife. To enhance your game-viewing experience, each game drive is led by two safari professionals: a driver-guide, trained to safely maneuver you up close to South Africa’s iconic wild residents as well as brief you on any given species’ characteristics, and a tracker, an expert at identifying animals, following their signs and predicting where they are likely to be found.

Day 6 - Greater Kruger Area
Begin two days of immersion in your private game reserve, embarking on game drives in open safari vehicles for optimum viewing and exploring on early morning game walks with your ranger. This region of Africa is noted for its high density of wildlife, which often appear just steps in front of you. As you explore, learn about the flora and fauna as well as basic tracking skills. In between safari activities, participate in an A&K Chef’s Table culinary experience, preparing a traditional South African dish. At dusk, stop for a Scenic Sundowner, and then search for nocturnal animals. Return to your lodge for dinner.

Day 7 - Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Today, fly to Livingstone, Zambia, and then transfer to your hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Your afternoon is at leisure. Tonight, before dinner, enjoy hearing from a special guest speaker who shares tales of celebrated explorer David Livingstone — an A&K-exclusive experience.

Day 8 - Victoria Falls
Cruise the Zambezi, viewing hippos and elephants on shore. Afterward, enjoy one of these Design Your Day activities: Visit a Rural Village for an interactive experience that offers insight into the traditions of the Zimbabwean people. Privately Tour the Ndau Collection Studio to meet the artisans who design their opulent jewelry. Privately Bike the Area, cycling the town of Victoria Falls and stopping at scenic viewpoints along the way. Return to the hotel for some time at leisure. Late this afternoon, set out on a guided walking tour of breathtaking Victoria Falls, one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, and explore the surrounding rainforest. See rainbows and clouds of spray as the mile-wide Upper Zambezi plummets into the Lower Zambezi. Gather tonight for a farewell dinner.

Day 9 - Depart Johannesburg, South Africa
Fly to Johannesburg, where you enjoy access to the Premier Lounge before boarding your flight home.
