17 Day Africa Trip - Designed & Guided by Leslie Edwin

“You are never too old to have a happy childhood”

NOTE FROM OUR GUIDE:  Itinerary changes may occur but will not impact the quality of the tour. Africa is an amazing tourist area but a challenging one organizationally where the ability to be flexible is key. Things can go a bit awry now and then,  but I believe that with fun, humor and your sense of being on holiday adventure we’ll have a brilliant time. Best regards, Leslie

Day 1 - Arrive Cape Town
  • You will arrive today in Cape Town. One of the most beautiful cities in the world!
  • During our stay in Cape Town, we will stay at the beautiful Vineyard Hotel with a view of Table Mountain right outside your room. It is truly a charming, old world hotel – long on atmosphere with 6 acres of private gardens. If it is a clear day, we will take the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, where you will marvel at the panoramic view of Cape Town and the surrounding landscape.
Day 2
  • Today we will go to the Cape of Good Hope. On the way, you will see some of the most spectacular sea, mountain and beachscapes in the world with a visit to the home of hundreds of penguins!
Day 3
  • A morning’s visit to the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, followed by a Cape Town City Tour; a visit to Robbin Island (Nelson Mandela’s home for 26 years) and plenty of time to shop.
Day 4
  • Today we pack up and fly to Skakuza (SKZ) via Johannesburg. There, the friendly staff of the Lodge will meet us for our 5 night stay. Idube offers a world of adventure and discovery. Set deep in the wild heartland of the Sabi Sands reserve, part of the world-renowned Kruger Park. An exclusive family owned lodge dedicated to giving you a genuine bush experience. Cross the suspended walkway to the hide next to the dam. Sit quietly and watch elephant come down to bath, or lions quench their thirst.
  • Leave the main door open at night (close only the mosquito screens) and hear the sounds of Africa at night when the bush is awake – the roar of lions, the laughing hyenas.
  • Wake up in the morning to a chorus of a hundred birds.
  • Your meals will be in a beautiful African boma and there is a swimming pool for your pleasure in the afternoon. There are 2 game drives per day, plus 1 bush walk per day with an armed ranger.
Day 5 - 8
  • Sabi Sands Reserve
Day 9 - 11 Sabi Sands Reserve – Idube Camp
  • Today we will transfer to Idube camp, another jewel the world famous Sabi Sands Game Reserve. This is the best place in the world for leopard and rhino (lion and elephant too!) In in the heart of the five million acre Kruger National Park, this is the best place in Africa for seeing lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo. (All at a range of 10ft. from our land rovers) Here, off road driving takes on a whole new meaning as we plow our way through the bush on the tails of lions stalking a kill. (The best 4X4 bush experience)
  • At night, we search for nocturnal animals by spotlight, as almost all animals are active mostly at night. The accommodation is luxurious and the food superb. Three days of unbeatable wilderness.
Day 12
  • After a morning game drive and breakfast, we fly out of Skukuza to Johannesburg and check into our hotel for the night.
Day 13
  • This morning we will experience a church service in Soweto. Leslie has been taking tours here for years and it is a wonderful opportunity to meet the people in the biggest “black” city in Africa and experience their faith community.  This will be a wonderful experience in human relations, religion and anthropology. Afterwards, we will tour Pretoria and learn about the colorful history of Johannesburg and its diamond industry.
Day 14 - Zimbabwe
  • We fly to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe today. We will visit the Falls (one of the seven wonders of the world!) and then, transfer to Chobe Safari Lodge in Botswana where they have the greatest game cruises in Africa! On Botswana’s far northern border lies Swando, Linyanti and Chobe River system forming a series of lakes, islands and floodplains. This area forms the Chobe National Park, famous for it’s large buffalo and elephant herds. In addition to a variety of predators, there is an abundance of wild game and bird life, which decorate these beautiful waterways.
Day 15
  • Today you will experience both a morning game drive and an afternoon game cruise on the Chobe River.
Day 16
  • Zambia is where we will be going today for our rural Village Tour. You’ll get another stamp for your passports and a memorable look at African village life.
Day 17 - Tour Ends
  • We awake with another game drive (what a way to say good-bye to Africa)
    We pack bags for our flight from Victoria Falls via Johannesburg home.
