This journey begins in Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls - the small village that knows how to deliver a mighty adventure. Exploring the town brings the opportunity to ride on the back of Africa’s largest land mammal, soak up a rainforest meander and the chance to lay your eyes on the world’s largest waterfall before heading off to the vibrant city of Cape Town.

Once in Cape Town, South Africa, days are filled with tours showcasing the many highlights scattered throughout the city, its diverse suburbs, and winelands. Stand on Table Mountain (one of the world’s new 7 Wonders of Nature), sip on some of the best wine found in the southern hemisphere, and visit the point where the Indian and Atlantic Ocean are rumoured to meet.

Finally, head out along the Whale Coast for a dose of South Africa’s fresh air and natural gems.
