Wildlife, Waterfalls & Wine
Masai Mara • Victoria Falls • Cape Town
For those seeking a 'sample' of what Africa has to offer in a short space of time, take advantage of excellent new flight connections between Nairobi, Victoria Falls and Cape Town. Spend three days on safari in the most popular Kenyan wildlife reserve - the Masai Mara. With a remarkable concentration of animals including all of the major predators, large herds of plains game and an astounding number of bird species. Move onto Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and Africa's 'adventure capital'. Finish with the delights of Cape Town and nearby Cape Winelands with its European influence and world-class wineries.
Day 1: Nairobi On arrival, private transfer to your hotel for overnight.
Days 2 - 4: Nairobi > Masai Mara Light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara for three incredible days in this preserved savannah wilderness. You stand an excellent chance of seeing the Big 5 - rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard - as well as around 90 other mammal species including giraffe, hippo, zebra and so much more. Twice daily 4x4 safaris and the best African sunsets you can imagine will complete your days.
Day 5: Masai Mara > Nairobi Return to Nairobi for overnight.
Days 6 & 7: Nairobi > Victoria Falls A 3 hour direct flight to Victoria Falls, a sight so lovely that David Livingstone said it must have been 'gazed upon by angels in their flight'. Spend two days visiting the falls, lunch overlooking the gorge (at own cost) and a beautiful sunset cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see pods of hippo and crocodiles on the waters' edge.
Day 8: Victoria Falls > Cape Town It is another 3 hour direct flight to Cape Town where you will spend three nights exploring the 'Mother City'.

Day 11: Cape Town > Cape Winelands Transfer to the Cape Winelands, visiting a couple of vineyards on the way, and learn about the Cape Dutch and French Huguenot history of the early colonial settlers. Many of the wine farms are historic and still look the same today as they did over 300 years ago.
