Vibrant Cape Town, a Big 5 safari in a private Kruger reserve, and seven days of exotic island living in Seychelles - this Southern African holiday has it all.
Begin your journey in Africa's favorite city - Cape Town - and spend three days exploring its numerous attractions - fashionable city beaches, leafy vineyards, and of course beautiful Table Mountain. Then catch a flight to the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and enjoy a range of game viewing activities in your search for the Big 5.
From here you'll fly to Mahe Island in the Seychelles where you'll spend the rest of your trip enjoying life in a tropical Indian Ocean paradise, lounging on classic white-sand beaches and exploring coral reefs.
Arrive at Cape Town International Airport where you'll be met and transferred to The Cape Grace Hotel, situated at the heart of the ever-popular Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, and where you will spend the following four nights.
Tonight you can dine at the hotel's Signal Restaurant and enjoy whisky tasting at The Bascule Bar or you may opt to take a stroll through the Waterfront and dine at one of the many different restaurants on offer.
You are in an ideal position to spend the following two days exploring not just the beautiful Waterfront but also the lively and culturally diverse city of Cape Town. Most of the city's attractions are literally on your doorstep.
Take a walk around the bustling streets of the city centre - Long Street is particularly worth checking out for dose of local flavours - and visit African markets, antique stores, designer shops or some of the many restaurants, bars and cafes.
The beautiful beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are only a short drive away, as is the cable car up Table Mountain from where you can gaze over the city, the peninsula and the glittering Atlantic Ocean.
This morning you will transfer back to Cape Town Airport for your scheduled flight to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. A charter flight will then take you to a Singita airstrip where you will be met and transferred to Singita Boulders Lodge. Here you have the option of enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner for two on your private deck, allowing you to relax and settle in at your home for the next three nights.
The next two days will be yours to enjoy a luxurious safari experience in a classic private Kruger game reserve. Enjoy early morning, afternoon and evening game drives, remembering to keep your eyes open: the area is famous for its high concentration of big game and is also known for its frequent leopard sightings. Guided nature walks offer a different, more intimate way of exploring this environment.
And when you're not enjoying this breathtaking wilderness, you can relax at the lodge in your private pool or on one of the viewing deck with a cool drink in hand. Relax and rejuvenate at the in-house spa and enjoy a range of beauty treatments and massages.
A charter flight will take you back to the airport where you will catch your connecting flight to OR Tambo. From here you will be transferred to trendy neighbourhood of Sandton and the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel, your accommodation for the night. The rest of the day is yours to relax. Take a swim in the pool, pamper yourself at the spa, or wander the manicured gardens. Round the day off perfectly with an evening of fine dining in Sandton.
Today you will travel from Johannesburg to exquisite Mahe Island in the Seychelles. A road transfer will then take you to Banyan Tree where you will spend the next seven days indulging in luxury island living. Banyan Tree is located on the scenic south-west coast of Mahe and is the ideal location from which to explore this amazing destination.
There's no rush over the coming days so you can easily spend long hours soaking up the sun and lounging on the pristine beaches that have made the Seychelles islands as famous as they are. Stay in a spacious and luxurious room where you can enjoy privacy and romance, not to mention a private jacuzzi.
When you're not relaxing on the beach you can take a stroll around the beautiful botanical gardens, enjoy a game of tennis on the resort's courts or take a dip in the infinity pool. Relax at the pool bar with a drink in hand and choose one of the five restaurants to enjoy a fantastic evening dinner.
Get romantic as you indulge in a private barbeque dinner on the beach one evening and watch the sun set over the horizon.
Activities that you can enjoy outside of the resort include cruises on the Banyan Lagoon, snorkelling and diving excursions to the marine park or boat trips to explore some of the other nearby islands.
Enjoy one last breakfast in paradise before you fly back to OR Tambo International Airport to catch your international flight home after an unforgettable holiday.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
