Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Cape Town, South Africa
The Commodore None
Touch down in cosmopolitan Cape Town. With a friendly welcome to South Africa, your driver will transport you to your stylish hotel overlooking the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Start exploring as you like.
Day 2
Cape Town, South Africa
The Commodore Breakfast
Get ready for an adrenaline-charged day on Table Mountain. For the epitome of breathtaking views, hike the Platteklip Gorge to the top of Table Mountain; then rappel down the steep slope looking out over the city, Table Bay and Robben Island. Feel the charge of completing “the world’s highest commercial abseil.”
Day 3
Cape Town, South Africa
The Commodore Breakfast, Lunch
With “Jaws” sparking your imagination, set out for a boat ride to Dyer Island in search of sharks. Work up your courage and descend in a reinforced cage beneath the sea to safely watch the menacing prehistoric fish. Your expert guide promises “this will be one of the most adrenaline-charging adventure activities you will ever live to remember.”
Day 4
Cape Town, South Africa
Mashatu Main Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Take flight to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, situated in the remote eastern corner of Botswana. This is a place of exceptional beauty with rugged, unspoiled African landscapes, unchanged since the days of early visitors such as Kipling, Selous and artist/explorer Sir Thomas Baines.
Day 5
Tuli Game Reserve
Mashatu Main Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Wake up with the wildlife and join your expert ranger for a game drive in an open-air safari vehicle for the chance to spot some of the many different animals. Mashatu “Land of Giants”, takes its name from the Mashatu tree and the giants that roam its terrain, the African elephant – world’s largest mammal, the lion – king of the beasts, the giraffe – world’s tallest mammal, the eland – world’s largest antelope, the ostrich – world’s largest bird, and the kori bustard – world’s heaviest flying bird. This is an ornithologist’s dream and birdwatchers will delight in checking off the reserve’s 350 bird species, including the enchanting lilac-breasted roller, whose plumage features no less than seven shades of blue.
Day 6
Tuli Game Reserve
Mashatu Main Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Begin the day with a game drive to explore this diverse wilderness. Along the river courses, huge Mashatu trees provide shade for eland, impala, wildebeest, giraffe and zebra. Return to camp for a hearty brunch and a dip in the pool. As the sun cools down, join your ranger on an evening game drive in search of the bat-eared fox, African wildcat and the magnificent leopard. Dinner is served under the stars in the traditional open-air boma, while the sounds of the surrounding bushveld serenade you.
Day 7
Tuli Game Reserve / Johannesburg
Peermont D'oreale Grande Breakfast
Soak up the pink glow of sunrise and your last hours in the bush before flying off to Johannesburg and your well appointed hotel.
Day 8
Johannesburg, South Africa
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge Breakfast
Take flight to Victoria Falls for three days soaking up the world’s largest curtain of falling water, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Zambezi National Park. Before the sun sets, board the classic teak Ra-Ikane, named for David Livingstone’s guide, and sip a sundowner or two as you watch for elephants, hippos and crocodiles along the river banks.
Day 9
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge Breakfast
Kick off your day with a game drive on your way to the Zambezi National Park for some adventurous canoeing. After your qualified guide provides a thorough safety briefing and instruction, paddle down river, running small rapids, exploring channels looking for birds and other wildlife. Lunch and a cold beer await you at your disembarkation point some ten miles downstream. Return to your lodge for an afternoon poolside.
Day 10
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge Breakfast, Dinner
Today’s immersion in Victoria Falls starts with a guided walk along the misty overlooks to watch for rainbows. Marvel at the 100 million gallons of water per minute crashing through the channels. Then, head into Zambezi National Park for a full menu of thrilling rides. Look straight down on the river’s turbulent rapids as you zipline through the forest canopy along the Batoka Gorges, reaching over 65 miles per hour. Harness into a gigantic swing for a wild ride 300 feet above the river. Or try the Flying Fox, just take “a running jump into thin air over the gorge.” Even tonight’s dinner at your lodge will be adventurous. Specializing in traditional Zimbabwean dishes and renowned for its warthog fillet, the Boma feast will sate you with a four-course barbecue feast - the Mopane worms are optional. Get into the rhythm of the bush with performances by Amakwezi dancers and join in the drumming circle.
Day 11
Victoria Falls, Zambia
None Breakfast
Transfer to the airport for your departure flight bound for Johannesburg and your connecting international flights. You may be leaving Africa behind but you’ll return home with fantastic photos and memories that will always live on in your heart.

African Safari - September 2013

By: Nade & Fran


Reviewed on: 20 Sep 2013

I could have have even imagined the experience that awaited us. The first night on a game drive we experienced watching lions eating a kill, so close you could smell the animals. All other animal siteings were equally as exciting. The lodging were excellent, service was first class and the people were wonderful. Cannot wait to go again. Post Haste Travel & African Travel did a fantastic job.!!!

Once in a lifetime

Our African Travel experience was fantastic. We didn't know what to expect, but having said that, our African experience was far and away more than we could have dreamed. The game drives and safari hotels were all great. WE couldn't have planned this trip alone, so the African Travel Inc. portion was vital to our having a great time, which we certainly did.

Everyone we dealt with at Africa Travel were great. They arranged the best guides and made sure our travel through every airport and border was smooth and without issues. Anytime we had a question, they quickly responded through their contact people in every location. Our travel advisor selected Africa Travel for us, but we cannot say enough good things about our accommodations and all of the logistical arrangements.

This was the first time that we have used Africa Adventure Company. Their recommendations for trip itinerary and accommodations were spot-on. The private guides were exceptional - extremely knowledgeable, courteous, accommodating, and professional. They were great ambassadors for their respective countries, and we saw many animals and rare animal behaviors because of their expertise, leadership, and guidance.

African Answers .was very easy to work with and ALWAYS available for questions. My contact at Africa Answers was Rowan and he did a great job; I was taken care of from the minute I stepped off the plane until I left the country. A person was assigned to me in both countries I visited. People who listened, were on time or early for pickups and very knowledgable about every portion of the area I was vacationing in. My last day in country I was not feeling well, so on the fly I asked to drop something that had been planned for me to do and instead just find a place to rest. The guys that Africa Answers was working with took care of everything. Book with these guys.

South Africa Honeymoon

African Travel was great! Other than a small hiccup with a hotel in Capetown (which they remedied), the trip was awesome. The drivers and tour guides that they hire were all super friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. The businesses they chose for Shark Diving, Cape of Good Hope, and the Thorny Bush Reserve were excellent places. My wife and I would definitely recommend African Travel to friends and family! Cheers!

We didn’t know what to expect from our first trip to Africa. But our safari with African Travel exceeded our expectations. There were so many details, flights to catch, transfers, etc. and it all went as planned. The accommodations were amazing and the service was extraordinary. We also had wonderful guides that enhanced our experience.
