11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,131

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Pair together the natural and cultural delights of South Africa with the futuristic wonders of Dubai. Start in South Africa, where you’ll explore Cape Town and head on safari in Pilanesberg. Then connect to United Arab Emirates to experience Dubai, the greatest show on earth.


This 12-day vacation takes you to Cape Town and on safari in Pilanesberg before connecting to Dubai. It features a mix of deluxe and first-class accommodations and shared tours.

Your journey begins in Cape Town, a city blessed with one of the world’s most spectacular natural settings. Known as the Mother City, Cape Town sits in the shadow of Table Mountain on the beautiful Cape Peninsula. You’ll have three days at leisure to explore the city and surrounds at your own pace. Venture along the Cape Peninsula to gaze out over Cape Point and spot the colony of penguins at Boulders Beach. Head on a day trip through the Cape Winelands and stroll through the quaint streets of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. Summit Table Mountain for spectacular views of the cape or book a trip to Robben Island to tour the infamous prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years.

Fly to Johannesburg and connect to Ivory Tree Lodge in Pilanesberg National Park, a malaria-free haven nestled in the basin on an ancient amphitheatre divided by riverside woodlands and ancient elephant trails. Spend two full days on safari in Pilanesberg. Head on morning and afternoon game drives in an open land rover and search for the Big Five as well as cheetahs and wild dogs. Cap off each day with sundowners and spa treatments at the lodge or a dip in the swimming pool.

Connect back to Johannesburg and continue on to Dubai, the futuristic city that defines the 21st century more than any other. After settling into your hotel, you’ll head to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, where you’ll head up to Level 124 for an experience “At the Top.” Enjoy panoramic views of the city as well as multimedia exhibits charting the construction of this architectural marvel.  Cap off your time in Dubai with a dune safari in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Ride a camel across the dunes, try out sandboarding, and enjoy a breakfast picnic with views of the shifting sand dunes.

At the end of your stay, connect back to the airport for onward travels.
