ITINERARY:

Day 1 Cape Town
On arrival today you will be met at the door of the aircraft by your Meet and Greet who will assist you through Customs and Immigration and hand over your documents. You will then be transferred by luxury vehicle to the Mount Nelson Hotel where you will check in for the next 3 nights.
The Mount Nelson Hotel is one of the most iconic luxury hotels in Cape Town, located in the leafy suburb of Gardens, at the foot of Table Mountain, just a short stroll via the squirrel-filled Government Lane to the heart of the city. This elegant hotel offers pure sophistication in an unmatched garden setting, known for its decadent high teas. Cocktails are enjoyed at the Planet Champagne and Cocktail Bar, while the Cape Colony Restaurant offers a mix of contemporary Southern European and Western Cape trends and the Oasis Restaurant is the perfect venue for relaxed alfresco dining. Stroll through the 9 acres of landscaped gardens or simply relax at one of the 2 heated swimming pools. There are also floodlit tennis courts, a golf practice net, a body care centre, hairdresser and gymnasium.

Day 2 Cape Town (B)
This morning your private guide will collect you from your hotel and take you on a brief city tour orientating yourself with the city's highlights before heading to the Cable way at Table Mountain for a spectacular view over the city and ocean. You will then descend and head to the V&A Waterfront where you will board your helicopter for a private tour of the City and surrounding beaches and coastline (approx 20 minutes). You will get to view such highlights as the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, the Twelve Apostles mountain range and Table Mountain as well as the city. You will be dropped off at the Twelve Apostles for lunch to be enjoyed at the Azure Restaurant (included, but drinks for own account). After your leisurely lunch you will have a chance to hike the 12 Apostles Mountains behind the hotel on one of the trails which should take around 40 minutes, before heading back to your hotel with your driver/guide.

Day 3 Cape Town (B)
You will have this day at leisure to explore the city or to simply relax and enjoy your luxurious surrounds.

Day 4 Winelands (B)
Today you will check out of the Mount Nelson and you will be collected by your specialist guide for a full day Winelands Tour. Your guide will discuss your touring options with you according to your interest, which could include any or all of the following: Paarl with its mountain setting and Afrikaans Language Monument; Franschhoek - founded by French Huguenots over 350 years ago, and widely regarded as the culinary capital of South Africa, with a beautiful setting and café lined streets which will charm you, and Stellenbosch - the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal lined avenues, and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture. Wine tastings are included at premier estates and a stop will be made for lunch in a memorable location (lunch is for your own account). At the end of the tour you will be transferred to Delaire Lodge for your overnight stay.
Delaire Lodge is situated within the Delaire Graff Wine Estate, on the highest crest of the magnificent Helshoogte Mountain Pass, just 9 kilometres from Stellenbosch. This leading boutique hotel and restaurant opened its doors in April 2010 and is set within Keith Kirsten designed indigenous gardens, complete with life size brass sculptures. Enjoy the services of your own personal butler and make use of the complimentary private transport to Stellenbosch, which is available at your request. Treat yourself to some pampering at the full-service spa and round your day off with sunset bubbles and canapés served in your lodge.

Day 5 Johannesburg (B)
Today you will check out of Delaire and will be transferred by luxury vehicle to the airport in time to check in for your flight to Johannesburg. On arrival you will be met by your guide who will take you on an afternoon orientation tour of Johannesburg and Soweto.
This tour is designed to give first time visitors an overall impression of "Egoli" - the City of Gold, South Africa's commercial and financial capital. You will first take a look around the northern suburbs, then continue to the hustle and bustle of Hillbrow and Braamfontein, home to the Constitutional Court of South Africa. You will drive through the downtown area to the Carlton Centre, for a view of the city from the enclosed deck on the 50th floor. You will travel onward to Soweto (South Western Township) – the largest black residential area in South Africa, where you will see a fascinating contrast to Rosebank and Sandton in the north. This sprawling "city within a city" is home to approximately 2-million people, many of whom work in various parts of the greater metropolitan area of the Witwatersrand. The tour includes all the major points of interest, such as Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Baragwanath taxi rank, Freedom Square, Hector Pieterson Memorial and Nelson Mandela's former home. On completion of the tour you will be transferred to the Westcliff Hotel for your overnight stay.
The Westcliff is situated in the exclusive and historic suburb by the same name and is located high on a hilltop, overlooking the forested scenes beyond. This opulent hotel is designed in a Mediterranean village style in a series of picturesque 'villas' surrounded by tinkling fountains and cobbled pathways, in three acres of landscaped gardens. Two restaurants specialize in international dishes with a distinctly South African flair, high teas are enjoyed in the Conservatory and the casual Polo Lounge and Terrace spill out onto the elevated pool deck with panoramic views.

Day 6 Botswana (BD)
Today you will be transferred to the airport in time for your flight to Maun in Botswana. On arrival you will board a short charter flight into the Okavango Delta where you will check in at Eagle Island Camp for the next 2 nights.
Eagle Island Camp is situated on Xaxaba Island, in the heart of Botswana's Okavango Delta. The camp is surrounded by Illala Palms and overlooks a lagoon, which is fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. This peaceful setting allows you to witness the most magnificent sunsets from the raised deck, al fresco meals are also enjoyed here. This camp is known for its unique Fish Eagle Bar, which is located away from the main buildings, on its own private island.

Day 7 Botswana (BLD)
From April to October, you are spoilt with a choice of game viewing in the surrounding lagoons, by mokoro, motorized boats and on sundowner barges. When the water levels are lower, from December to March, you can do morning, afternoon and evening game drives on open 4x4 vehicles. Guided safari walks are offered all year around on the surrounding islands. An absolute treat is the complimentary 30 minute game viewing experience by helicopter - nothing else will prepare you for the vast panoramas of lush green vegetation, crystal clear lagoons and the grazing wildlife beneath you, unperturbed as you hover above them.

Day 8 Botswana (BLD)
Today you will board a small aircraft for your short scenic flight to Khwai River Lodge, your base for the next 3 nights.
Khwai River Lodge is situated adjacent to the renowned Moremi Game Reserve, in the heart of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. This luxury lodge is set on the banks of the Khwai River floodplains, peaking out from under an ancient Leadwood and fig tree forest. The main lounge and bar has a lower covered section and a totally open upper deck. Meals are served under cover, or in the open, on the wide grassed area by the large and inviting pool. There is a secluded spa offering treatments with natural products and views to match.
Days 9 & 10 Botswana BLDEarly morning game drives take you out and among a wild landscape dotted with trees. Expect to see a huge range of creatures, from big cats such as lions and leopards, to hippo, rhino, antelope, giraffe and buffalo. Widely acknowledged to be the predator capital of the world, this is the only place in Botswana where the Big Five can be seen. Equally atmospheric and exciting are evening drives, as the shadows lengthen and the sky turns red. Moonlight drives, star gazing, bird watching, walking and even a visit to a local community will keep you occupied when not indulging in a spa treatment or game viewing from the comforts of your own deck.

Day 11 Livingstone (B)
Today you board a small aircraft for your charter flight to Kasane where you will be collected and transferred by road to Livingstone in Zambia. Your home for the next 2 nights is the Royal Livingstone Hotel with its unrivalled location at the edge of the Victoria Falls.
The Royal Livingstone Hotel is located immediately upstream from the Falls on the forested banks of the great Zambezi River. This hotel optimises the regal stature of a bygone era, with the main section being a sequence of double volume thatch roofed buildings housing large and elegant lounges, bars and shaded verandahs of authentic Colonial furnishings. The sparkling Victorian swimming pool visually links the river with the terraces of the hotel, and there is a sweeping timber deck jutting into the swirling water of the Zambezi.

Day 12 Livingstone (B)
There are a large variety of activities on offer, from white water rafting, sundowner cruises, visits to local villages and helicopter flips. For something different, you can also choose to visit one of the local projects that the hotel is involved in. You could spend a day with Linda, helping on the fruit and vegetable farm which is run by the blind and partially sighted; enjoy an artistic day with one of the Livingstone Women's groups as they make a variety of tie and dye items; spend a day with the orphans of Global Samaritans or visit the mushroom and egg rearing project which supports more than twenty women.
