Jewels of Southern Africa
A Trove of Gleaming Gems

13 Days door-to-door

We honour many especially radiant gems on this wonderfully eventful, under-two-week safari: sparkly Cape Town and its Winelands, Phinda Private Game Reserve’s marvelously varied ecosystems, the classically golden savannahs and lush forests of the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve, and gargantuan Victoria Falls. We begin with three nights in Cape Town’s knockout One&Only, with festive excursions into the nearby Winelands. Then comes a splendid couple of days in Phinda’s seven distinct and beautiful habitats, and on to artfully designed Tengile River Lodge, on a serene bend in the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s Sand River, a private enclave next to Kruger National Park.  We end with a thrilling watery roar at Victoria Falls and the famed Royal Livingstone, where mist from the nearby colossus Victoria Falls freshens our day.


  • In-depth days in effervescent Cape Town, one-on-one meetings with local go-getters and experts, exhilarating visits to Table Mountain, the charmingly colourful Malay Quarter, an inspirational Micato-AmericaShare project, and the city’s many other shopping, historical, and human highpoints.
  • Encounters with, and oenophilic wisdom from elite vintners in the gorgeous Cape Winelands.
  • Meeting up with the Big Five, more or less of course, in the Phinda Private Game Reserve’s marvelously varied septet of habitats, including Africa’s last sand forest.
  • Touchdown-to-takeoff service from expert guides and facilitators and 24-hour backup by our Concierge Service.
  • Wildlife excursions in the wonderfully isolated Sabi Sands private game reserve adjoining Kruger National Park, in 4-wheel drive vehicles and on expertly guided, deeply informative walking safaris.
  • Two days of awe-striking views and rainforest trail walking at the world’s most stupendous waterfall, Victoria Falls.
