Ultimate Kalahari & Lower Zambezi Safari

Duration
13 Days
Prices From:
US$ 14,961

DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Start with Cape Town’s most iconic luxury hotel - celebrating art and design. Next, stay in South Africa's largest private game reserve where your game lodge blends comfort seamlessly with the stunning landscape. Lastly, head to the banks of the Zambezi River, where a luxury safari camp offers the utmost comfort amidst the wild 'real Africa' that is Zambia.


This 13 day deluxe, private guided adventure is a once in a lifetime safari that combines the best of Cape Town with the legendary Kalahari Desert and the Zambezi River. The grasslands of the Kalahari offer some of Africa’s best game viewing. You will then head to Zambia to explore the wildlife of the Zambezi River, while staying in a luxurious tented camp. 

After your arrival in South Africa and starting in Cape Town, explore and experience the best of this large city with a stunning natural setting at the base of Table Mountain. After settling into your deluxe hotel, a private guided tour of the city takes in highlights such as opulent Camps Bay, City Hall and the vibrant Malay Quarter. 

The next day you can truly appreciate the beauty of Cape Town, with a side of adrenaline. Start your day with an exciting helicopter ride that hugs the coast towards Houts Bay and then return to the city with a chauffeured ride on a Harley Davidson! Your final day around Cape Town heads to the Stellenbosch area for a private 4X4 tour of some of South Africa’s best vineyards.

Now for a change of scene, fly to your luxury game lodge in the Kalahari. This vast savannah is home to lions, cheetahs and leopards, as well as their prey such as antelope and wildebeest. You will also see giraffes, zebras and several species of unique bird life. Over your three day stay, you will have the opportunity to participate in daily game drives, and even a helicopter safari if you choose. 

After the Kalahari, it’s off to Zambia to explore the marvels of the Zambezi. A different environment means you will see some new wildlife such as hippos and river crocodiles. Your experienced guides will be able to point out all the birds and wildlife as you canoe, boat or hike around this remote and beautiful area. Your luxury tented camp brings “glamping” to a new level and you will relax in style every night after fabulous cuisine but don’t forget to wake up early and watch the spectacle of all the wildlife surrounding you at sunrise. 

After three days you will be returned to Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, for your onward travels.

Half Day Private Authentic Cape Town City Tour

Today you will be picked up from your hotel for a Half Day Private Cape Town City tour. No visit to Cape Town is complete without a tour of the "Mother City". Take a cable car to the summit of the legendary Table Mountain, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, (own account and weather permitting) with views of the City and surrounding layout of this southernmost tip of Africa.
You drive to Camps Bay, an affluent oceanside suburb of Cape Town, boasting a magnificent white sandy beach and once the hunting ground of Lord Charles Somerset. Wind your way along through Clifton, an exclusive residential area, home to some of the most expensive real estate in South Africa before meandering through Sea Point, the first 'commuter suburb' of Cape Town and now a recognized Orthodox Jewish community. En route you willl see the sweeping silhouette of the Cape Town Stadium before passing down Adderley Street considered the main street of the central business district.
The City Hall located on the Grand Parade is up next. Nelson Mandela made his first public speech after his release from the balcony of Cape Town City Hall.
Drive past the Castle of Good Hope, a Provisional Heritage Site. The Castle of Good Hope was originally built as a maritime replenishment station and is the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa!
You then pass Charly's Bakery, home of Charly's Cake Angels, stars of the Food Network Show before hearing a brief history of District Six en-route to a visit at the Company Gardens.

It is bordered by numerous landmarks including the Slave Lodge, present day Houses of Parliament and St George's Cathedral, the seat of the Anglican church in South Africa.
You hear about Greenmarket Square, the location for the well that was once the town's main water supply during summer months when streams from Table Mountain dried up, before a visit to the Noon Gun where you witness the historic time signal and learn more about the history of the Bo-Kaap and its people as you move up the cobblestoned hills to the Malay Quarter, and marvel at the ice-cream colours of the quaint Bo-Kaap homes.
Your final stop. A jewellery showroom where you meet a master diamond cutter and witness the process of cutting and polishing a diamond. You may even witness the rare opportunity of pouring of a gold bar!

Day 3

Heli-Harley Experience

Bringing the excitement of flight and the thrill of riding a motorbike together is one of the most amazing experience in Cape Town. The combination of a helicopter your and then riding through the same scenery just flown over on the back of a Harley Davidson is difficult to explain and define in words. As if leaving Cape Town at the perfect time of the day to make this adventure special, then flying out to sea along the magnificent Atlantic shoreline down to Hout Bay is not enough this adventure pushes the limits of enjoyment. From sleepy Hout Bay the flight heads inland toward Groot Constantia and Simons Restaurant for a splendid lunch. After a relaxed lunch, the helicopter is ditched in favor of a chauffeur driven Harley Davidson for a wind in your hair rid back to base.
