A South African Epic Safari

This epic itinerary encompasses a five-country train journey aboard the Rovos Rail, a safari in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti as well as a beach getaway on the Indian Ocean coast.

Celebrate a milestone on this 4-week journey which begins in beautiful Cape Town, where you’ll board the incomparably romantic Rovos Rail. Your luxury train traverses five countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania, taking in Victoria Falls en route. View Mount Kilimanjaro as you travel to Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, styled like a French baroque chateau yet set amid unmistakably African surroundings. Explore the Serengeti from Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge, which offers unrivalled luxury on the northern plains before getting away from it all at Ras Kutani, a slice of paradise on the deserted shores of Zanzibar on the Indian Ocean.

This is is not a group tour but a recommended, sample itinerary that we can tailor to your requirements. Please contact us for further information.
