What You’ll Love…

The Accommodation – From glamourous nights on the super-luxe Blue Train to bespoke sophistication at The Dulini Collection lodges nestled in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve

If you think you’ve experienced a luxury train journey, think again. Welcome aboard the Blue Train – defining a new kind of luxury. Operating since 1946 and recognised as one of the most luxurious train journeys in the world, the Blue Train will whisk you from Cape Town to Pretoria – the country’s capital city – in sheer luxury. Think: personal butlers ready to meet your every need, high teas, formal dinners boasting the finest local wines and world-class cuisine, and super deluxe suites with air-conditioning, lavish under-floor heating, opulent marble and gold-fitted bathrooms and scented bath salts.

Three nights of your incredible journey will be spent at the super lavish Dulini Collection – three bespoke lodges nestled on a scenic riverbank in Sabi Sands Game Reserve – part of the famous Greater Kruger National Park. The view of the valleys and mountains, the enchanting sunrises and African sunsets and the variety of game species that graze nearby, create a serene ambience that makes the lodges at The Dulini Collection a truly spectacular experience.

By day, embark on exhilarating game drives and spot elephants, lions, giraffes and leopards. By night, unwind in your private, in-lodge plunge pool surrounded by the lush landscape beyond. Rustic and sanded wooden decks open to an expansive backdrop of the national park while sandstone bathrooms welcome you with sunken bathtubs and romantic outdoor showers - it’s the perfect setting to reconnect with nature.

You will also spend three nights in the shadow of the spectacular Table Mountain at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel – a five-star oasis of timeless glamour in the bustling heart of Cape Town – and one night at the private-estate-turned-luxury-villa of Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, one of Johannesburg’s most awarded boutique hotels.

The Experiences – Enjoy exclusive private touring through Cape Town and the winelands, board one of the world’s most luxurious trains and get up close and personal with South Africa’s wildlife

Few cities on earth have a landscape as spectacular as Cape Town. From the magnificent Table Mountain to the glistening waters of V&A Waterfront, this is a city where beauty abounds. Delve a little deeper with a private morning tour of the city and discover the magnetic culture – a wonderful melting pot of multi-cultural influences that colours everything from architecture and artwork to cuisine.

A private, full-day tour of the stunning winelands—only 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town—will have you visiting the centuries-old vineyards and stunning Cape Dutch architecture of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek – towns that date back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Enjoy a highly-personalised experience where your guide will tailor the wineries you visit to your tastes and preferences. Then enjoy a glass of your favourite drop over a long, laid-back lunch at a local and award-winning restaurant.

Your exhilarating tour will end on a high, at none other than the famed Greater Kruger National Park. Base yourself in the conservation area of Sabi Sands Game Reserve – located in the Southwestern section of the park. Embark on game drives led by expert local guides and trackers, who will share personal stories and help you spot these elusive animals. Dubbed the ‘Big Five’ purely because they are the five most difficult animals in Africa to seek out on foot, there’s nothing more majestic than watching lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos in their natural habitat. It is an experience you will never forget.

Your Package Includes:

Optional Tour Extension – Discover the grandeur of Victoria Falls including a spectacular helicopter flight

Don’t want your incredible journey to come to an end? Extend your tour with two days in Zambia and Zimbabwe discovering the magnificence of Victoria Falls.

One of the original Seven Natural Wonders of the World—and a sight that sits atop many bucket lists—these falls are best appreciated from vantage points at both sides. This two-kilometre sheet of falling water forms where the Zambezi River plunges into a deep gorge. Seen from the ground, it’s one of the world’s most impressive waterfalls – the water’s mist and rainbows can be seen from over 20 kilometres away – though the view from the air, where the full scale of the falls is apparent, is even more astounding.

Included in your tour is a spectacular scenic helicopter flight that will have you flying over this natural phenomenon.

At the end of each day, return to safari elegance at The Royal Livingstone Hotel where you’ll wake up in high-end luxury as you witness zebras wandering the hotel grounds and wind down with the flaming sun setting to a backdrop of Victoria Falls.

Please note: Water levels at Victoria Falls vary throughout the year, dependant on summer rains.

Your Extension Package Includes:

  • Two nights at the five-star Royal Livingstone Hotel
  • Daily breakfast
  • Private tour of both the Zambian and Zimbabwe sides of Victoria Falls
  • A spectacular, 15-minute scenic helicopter flight over the falls
  • Sunset cruise of the Zambezi River aboard the African Queen with included cocktails and canapés
