Day 1 to 4

Upon arrival at Cape Town International Airport (CPT), you will be met by a representative of Pembury Tours and will be transferred to your hotel for a three night stay. You have the option of staying in Radisson Waterfront Hotel and V&A Hotel during these days.

Explore the mother city and the fairest cape from the oldest buildings in South Africa to trendy waterfront shopping, from the majestic Table Mountain to sun-drenched beaches, and from dramatic seascapes to verdant vineyards. Cape Town regularly tops many lists of world must-visit destinations and Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain has recently been voted one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Cosmopolitan and fashionable, the relaxed atmosphere and pavement café culture gives Cape Town a southern European feel but with a distinctive African twist.

On the morning of the fourth day, there is time to relax in Cape Town before you are transferred to Cape Town International Airport (CPT) for your flight to Nelspruit. Upon arrival in Nelspruit, you will be met and transferred to your game lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Day 5 to 7

Forming part of the greater Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Reserve has no fences and the wildlife is able to cross freely between the Sabi Sands and the rest of the greater Kruger National Park. The safari experience in the Sabi Sand is highly personalized because game drive vehicles have exclusive traversing rights in their area.

The Sabi Sand Reserve is a remarkable natural sanctuary known for its exceptionally high concentration of animal and bird life. Close contact encounters are guaranteed as the animals are not threatened by the presence of vehicles, thanks to sound conservation management policies. Safaris are led by experienced rangers coupled with local Shangaan trackers.

With exceptional sightings of leopards (usually the most elusive of cats), lions, rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes during game drives, visitors are never lacking in exciting photographic content. You have the option of staying in Arathusa Safari Lodge and Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp during these days.

After your morning game drive on the seventh day, you will be transferred by road to your accommodation in the Hazyview or White River area. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax in the gardens of your lodge.

Day 8 to 10

On the morning of day eight, you will be transferred to Nelspruit Airport (NLP) for your flight to Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (LVI), you will be transferred to your hotel. You have the option of staying in Royal Livingstone Hotel and Zambezi Sun during these days.

Besides being one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a world heritage site, Victoria Falls is the unchallenged adventure capital of Africa with more than 50 activities available. The Victoria Falls is considered to be the largest waterfall in the world.

See the mighty Zambezi River as it thunders over the 1700 meter wide Victoria Falls and plunges 100 meters into a narrow gorge below. The great columns of spray rising from the tumultuous falls can be seen from 80 kilometers away on a clear day. If you are lucky enough to be there at full moon, a "moonbow" can be seen in the spray instead of the usual daylight rainbow.

The Victoria Falls is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and travelers can access the falls through either the town of Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side or from Livingstone in Zambia.

    "A quick email to thank you for the organisation of what one of the most interesting and enjoyable holidays we have ever experienced. A beautiful and interesting country with stunning countryside which we were fortunate to enjoy in spring time. We did a lot of walking in the countryside so the season added to the delight of these walks. All of the accommodation was good. Very special were the Braeside, Tanagra and Moontide which combine style, quirkiness, views and hospitality to the best but we also much enjoyed all of the other accommodation too where we always got a very warm welcome.

    "Thanks to Kerry we had a lovely honeymoon! We started in Cape Town and continued via the Garden Route to Port Elisabeth and Lalibela, which was the most perfect place. The tented camp was beautiful (the number of people that can stay there fits into one safari vehicle) food was excellent and the service perfect. On the game drives we saw lots of free roaming animals including lions with cups, rhinos, elephants and many more. All the other places we stayed at during our travels were beautiful and unique. The Segway tour in Tsitsikama and a mountain bike tour in Knysna completed our trip perfectly."

    "Thanks a lot to Kerry and Pemboury tours!"
