Enjoy an immersive Africa experience as you take in the astounding beauty of Victoria Falls, the wilderness of Kruger and cosmopolitan Cape Town.

Inspired by the myth of a lost African kingdom, your first Africa experience takes place at The Palace of the Lost City, a sumptuous hotel set within Sun City, South Africa’s top holiday resort. Surrounded by jungles, streams and waterfalls, the fantasy of an African palace is apparent throughout, from the luxuriously rooms to the mosaics and fountains found within the hotel and its beautiful gardens.

More adventures await as you head into the heart of the African bush for a safari experience to remember. Your stay at the atmospheric Lukimbi Safari Lodge captures the lifestyle of a bygone era: tasteful lounges enjoy sweeping views of the Lwakahle River where animals often come to dip and drink while you sip cool sundowners and watch the sky turn a fiery red as the sun sets.

Following three nights here you’ll travel to Victoria Falls, where a series of tours will showcase the highlights of this incredible region. You’ll board the Bushtracks Express first for an adventure through the countryside. Swish through the shimmering African bushveld as the untamed wilderness and local villages stream leisurely past your window. From rails to river, you’ll embark the Zambezi Explorer for a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River. Hear the great roar of wallowing hippos – you might even be lucky enough to spot the resident elephants as they cross the river. Your final tour sees you explore the Zimbabwean side of the rainbow-framed Victoria Falls on foot with a guide.

From here you’ll travel to Pretoria for an overnight stay before you board the luxury Blue Train for your journey to Cape Town, trundling by spectacular scenery and enjoying a real glimpse of Africa.

Arriving in Cape Town you’ll enjoy three nights to discover the city which is made all the easier with the Cape Peninsula Tour we’ve included as part of your holiday. Cape Town is also famed for its exceptional vinyard areas which you’ll get to explore for yourself during a full day winelands tour.
