Victoria Falls - Arrive at Victoria Falls
The wonders of the landscape will blend with the majesty of the wildlife at Victoria Falls. As one of the world’s natural spectacles, panoramas from the top of the gorge reveal curtains of water that pour into the Lower Zambezi amidst the sound of endless thunder from the crashing cascades.

After breakfast, your guide will lead you to the stunning trails that offer different viewpoints of Victoria Falls. A panoramic view encompasses the cascade that sweeps over a half-mile long and causes mist to rise to a height of 1,312 feet. At the edge of the precipice sits Livingstone Island and the natural pond known as the Devil’s Pool. The plunge-pool offers remarkable views of the water as it drops over 328 feet. At the Victoria Falls Bridge, you will have a dramatic view of the falls, and adventure-seekers can dive over the bridge on a certified bungee jump.

Cape Town - Explore Cape Town and Robben Island
Your guide will meet you in the lobby after breakfast eager to introduce you to the beauty and vibrancy of Cape Town. You will explore the historical and cultural sites across the city, including an excursion to the infamous Robben Island. The prison dates back to the 17th century and now acts as a memorial to those who were once incarcerated, including Nelson Mandela. The wind will sweep across the tufts of grass, carrying the scent of the sea. The lime quarry will glint in the sun while a little stone house reflects the conditions of solitary confinement.
Cape Town - Discover Cape Point and the Peninsula
Your guide will meet you after breakfast and lead you along the coast tour of the peninsula that leads to Cape Point. You will follow the scenic coastal drive of Chapman’s Peak, where the road has 114 curves and offers dramatic panoramic views of rugged cliffs and shimmering Atlantic waters. When you reach the Cape, you will find a protected coastline where Cape Mountain zebras graze on the windswept grasses. Here, baboons also forage for fruits and insects around the bush. The water will crash against the rocks as you find the secluded point at which warm Mozambique and cold Benguela currents converge.
Cape Town - Bask in the Cape Winelands
The colonial settlements of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch provide oceans of vineyards that lead to the rising foothills of the surrounding mountainscapes.

When wine tasting, you will find the fantastic aromas of Pinotage that denote hints of tropical smoke and brambles.

The dense population of Big Cats brings the exhilarating opportunity for viewing lions and leopards in their natural habitat. In the evening, you will spend the night in a luxury treehouse with a panorama across the Sabie River. You may be able to hear hyenas prowling around the grasses and the quiet steps of a hunting leopard.
Kruger National Park - Revel in Fantastic Game Drives
You will experience the joys of game drives once more in the morning and evening. Your drives will be guided by a ranger who is skilled in spotting resting wildlife and signs of rare animals. In the late afternoon, you will set out on a second game drive as the wildlife once again becomes active due to the waning heat. As you explore the wilderness, you can spot the wide frame of a white rhino as it strolls through the grass. A male can grow 13 feet from head to tail and reach 5,100 pounds.
Mahe - Arrive in Seychelles
The charms of your honeymoon will continue when you travel from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport to Johannesburg International for your flight bound for Mahe and Seychelles International Airport. As the flight lands, you will notice the lavish blues and greens that emanate from the lush landscape and clear water of the Indian Ocean.

The aroma of the sea will fade beneath the scents of coconut and pineapple as you discover the resort’s soothing charms and the island’s serene atmosphere.
Mahe - Indulge in Seychelles at your Leisure
This morning, you will wake up to the sounds of a tropical paradise in your resort within over 296 acres of rare and luxuriant vegetation. You can board a catamaran bound for Mahe Reef. You will dive into the warm water and enjoy the vibrant marine life on a snorkeling excursion to discover radiant angelfish that swim near rugged outcroppings of granite and preserved coral. The seabed will undulate with sections of branch coral and give way to beds of seagrass where Hawksbill turtles glide through the water. You will also have a view of Victoria as you sail to the resort.
Mahe - Relax in the Charms of Seychelles
You can delight in a day of action at Morne Seychelles National Park to explore the impressive combination of coastal mangrove forests and lush woodlands that lead to the peak of Morne Seychelles at 2,969 feet. Walking trails wind into the dense jungle, which makes civilization feel worlds away. You will pass ruins of antique cinnamon distilleries and reach the breathtaking view from the mountain summit.

In the evening, you can embrace the romance of the island with dinner on the sands underneath the majestic starlight.
Mahe - Discover Seychelles at your Pace
After breakfast, the day will be yours to bask in the beauty of the tropical island and the passion of your honeymoon escape. You can wander through the famous Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market to find colorful fruit and vegetables alongside aromatic spices and an astonishing variety of fresh seafood.

The fringing palm trees cast shade over the coastline, and the waves offer a soothing lull in the afternoon air.
Mahe - Depart for Home
