About the tour
Marvel at the wonders of southern Africa as you discover dynamic Cape Town, uncover the natural beauty of the lush Garden Route, bask in the majesty of Victoria Falls, and embark on a truly elegant rail journey on the luxurious Pride of Africa.
Our adventure begins in London, as we board our overnight flight to Cape Town. On arrival on Day 2, we transfer to the 4-Star SunSquare City Bowl, where we enjoy a welcome drink and some time to settle into our new surroundings.
On Day 3 we are introduced to Cape Town with a guided tour, taking in its highlights. We travel to the summit of iconic Table Mountain by cable car (weather permitting), where we are afforded outstanding views across the city. Our next visit is to the Diamond Works, where we witness the art of diamond cutting first hand, seeing the expert craftsmanship that is required to create the jewellery, and learning the history of gold and diamond trading in South Africa. The rest of the afternoon is free. Surrounded by pristine beaches and verdant vineyards, Cape Town is one of the most thriving destinations in South Africa, and is known as a cultural hotspot. Take the opportunity to stroll amongst the diverse architecture, including the Italian Renaissance-style City Hall, discovering vibrant street art, world-class restaurants, and unique shopping opportunities.
On Day 4 we head to South Africa's southwesternmost promontory for a tour of the Cape Peninsula, discovering the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Chapman's Peak. We also visit Boulders Beach, a breathtaking area of white sands and clear waters that is home to a colony of African penguins.
