Detailed Description

Two of Africa's most exciting destinations combine to create this dream city and safari vacation. You start in untamed safari wilderness, exploring exquisite landscapes that teem with the Big Five and more. Think lion prides, endless rhinos, huge elephant herds, and everything else that captures your imagination about African wildlife. Kruger National Park is one of the continent's largest and most abundant, and you've got a full week of spectacular safari experiences. Then it's off to Cape Town for five days in one of the planet's most beautiful cities. Helicopter rides, vineyard tours, opulent dining, sidecar journeys; this itinerary bursts with unique ways to experience a renowned city. An air of romance is threaded throughout it all. Sleep in the continent's finest lodges, eat at tables for two in the bush, and enjoy private customized tours throughout.

Let's start in Kruger, where the vast landscapes teem with ravenous lions and dramatic safari scenes. It feels almost fictional, the Big Five practically roaming past your private verandah. Private game drives offer intimate encounters, champagne picnics gaze down on predatory cheetahs, and walking safaris take you hand-in-hand through elephant country. For all the excitement, this Kruger safari is also indelibly calm and relaxing. Sit back, relax, pick up a book, and then put it down because a buffalo herd is wandering past. For the first four days you're based in the unparalleled luxury of Sabi Sands, a private part of the park that combines rugged surroundings with opulent interiors. Next you'll spend three days crossing Kruger, with private remote camps completing your absolute immersion in the big game delights of South Africa.

For seven days you'll hardly see another person. That changes as you fly to Cape Town, although the commitment to privacy and getaway remains firmly in place. A deluxe suite at the fabulous five-star Twelve Apostles is your base, views of both mountain and ocean available from the balcony. Romantic vacations are about special experiences and Cape Town revels in its ability to offer the unique. Soar above the city on a private helicopter ride, drive a vintage WWII sidecar to encounters with wild penguins, and meander through endless vineyards. Just like Kruger, Cape Town knows how to move the pendulum from surprise to grandeur.

With stunning safari adventures and unique city experiences, this itinerary showcases two of the continent's finest destinations. It's a vacation that needs to be shared; but not with everyone. Bring your partner and jump into an idyllic, personalized version of Africa.
