DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Cape Town, South Africa
Queen Victoria Hotel None
After a warm welcome by our African Travel, Inc. representative you will be whisked away to your hotel, ideally located in the lively Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Settle into South Africa time at Dash Bar, named after Queen Victoria's favorite pet.
Day 2
Cape Town, South Africa
Queen Victoria Hotel Breakfast
Embark on a day of discovering the “The Fairest Cape.” The morning starts with a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain, then cruise along the pristine coastline, relishing the breathtaking views along legendary Chapman's Peak. Visit the endearing African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Day 3
Cape Town, South Africa
Queen Victoria Hotel Breakfast
This morning we visit some of Cape Town’s amazing farmers' markets with a specialist food guide. Meet specialty traders, fine-food purveyors, bakers, organic gardeners and grocers. Continue to Constantia Valley, the oldest wine producing region in the southern hemisphere. The area is steeped in history and is home to award winning wine farms and some of the best restaurants in the Cape.
Day 4
Cape Town, South Africa
Leeu House Breakfast, Lunch
Leave behind the lively city and venture into the Winelands. Taste your way through the historic town of Stellenbosch on a guided walk. Visit Babylonstoren, one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms, for wine tasting and a tour of the garden. Laid out over 8 acres, the garden is at the heart of the farm, and each of the 300 plant varieties is edible or has a medicinal value. Round off the day with an olive tasting at Tokara Wine Estate, set on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountain.
Day 5
Franschhoek, South Africa
Leeu House Breakfast
Enjoy the day at leisure in Franschhoek, one of the world’s top food and wine destinations. There are 52 wine farms and 48 restaurants that call the valley home and give visitors a taste of the culture, history and passion that have come together here. The village has something for everyone.
Day 6
Franschhoek, South Africa
Leeu House Breakfast, Lunch
Just a short distance from the coastal village of Hermanus, a picture-perfect drive brings you to the elevated wine estates of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Meaning “heaven and earth”, the hills that embrace the valley seem to touch the sky. Home to award winning boutique estates, the region is especially known for its Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
Day 7
Franschhoek, South Africa
Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
After a delicious breakfast, bid adieu to Franschhoek - you’re off to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve! Adjacent to Kruger National Park, this renowned reserve offers an extraordinary safari experience. A kaleidoscope of wildlife is at your fingertips, including the coveted "Big Five." There are no fences between Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, so wildlife roams freely in this epic natural environment.
Day 8
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve
Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Twice-daily game drives provide plenty of opportunities to witness the plethora of local wildlife. Safari connoisseurs often choose Sabi Sand Game Reserve as it offers one of the highest densities of wildlife per hectare. More than 200 different species coexist in abundance, including Africa’s most elusive and distinguished predator - the leopard.
Day 9
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve
Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Another day of exploration awaits with morning and late afternoon game drives, the latter extending into the twilight in an effort to showcase the fascinating nocturnal creatures and the lions on the hunt. Witness a magnificent African sunset while sipping a sundowner somewhere in the bush before celebrating with a communal dinner back at the lodge.
Day 10
Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve / Depart
None Breakfast
Venture on one last early morning game drive, a bittersweet farewell. Breakfast is included before your transfer to the airport for your flight to Johannesburg airport for your onward arrangements.

African Safari - September 2013

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.

Great trip. Almost seamless transitions from one camp to another. I am a bit baffled that the 5% repeat traveler was not applied to these last two trips to Africa with African Travel.

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

Reviewed on: 08 Dec 2017

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.
