From the Mighty Victoria Falls, to the chilled atmosphere of Cape Town and onto 2 amazing safari destinations where you will encounter wild life up close and personal, including a ride or two on an elephant!

Day 1-2: Islands of Siankaba, Livingstone, Zambia

On arrival at Livingstone Airport you will be met by a representative from Islands of Siankaba and transferred to the lodge.

The Islands of Siankaba Lodge is the most classic of forested retreats. Siankaba's seven secluded chalets, each with its unique and individually different view of the mighty Zambezi River, are linked by a foot bridge to a haute cuisine restaurant. All of this is located on two untouched islands in the middle of the mighty Zambezi River situated between the 'Seventh Wonder of the Natural World', the magnificent Victoria Falls, and the world famous Chobe National Park.

The Islands of Siankaba have been developed as a luxurious five star lodge, exclusively sleeping just fourteen guests. The two islands are linked by a suspension bridge leading to an overhead walkway in the tree canopy which connects the elevated chalets.

Set within the tree canopy on the banks of the river are just six tented chalets fashioned from teak and canvas.  Each privately situated room is large and spacious with ceiling fans, luxurious furnishings and private viewing decks overlooking the ever changing Zambezi River.  Enjoy the privacy of these viewing decks by settling down with a cold drink from your mini bar, to while away an afternoon watching the Zambezi meander by.

The romantic en-suite bathrooms feature huge bath tubs, separate showers, luxurious bath robes and offer a unique range of hand selected aromatherapy bathroom products. The large and comfortable beds, complete with down duvets and pillows, are positioned to maximize the river views. Awakening to the view of the sun rising over the Zambezi River is certainly an unforgettable experience.

One of the distinctive features of the lodge is how the excellence of its food and wines have developed a reputation for 'haute-cuisine in the bush' to complement its first class service.

25 miles from Victoria Falls, and just 30 miles from the magnificent Chobe National Park, lie two densely forested islands in the mighty Zambezi River. A place of spectacular natural beauty and a haven for an astonishing variety of plant and birdlife.

Earth Lodge is a sanctuary symbolizing a new era in luxury South African safari lodges. Sculpted into a slope of the earth, almost invisible in the landscape, the lodge uses texture, light and space to present a lodge like no other. Taking its cue from the surrounding environment, it has been described as the most environmentally sensitive lodge in Africa.

Earth Lodge reveals itself in a series of sensory revelations. On arrival a hidden corridor leads you down on a journey to a unique and unforgettable experience. The unexpected entrance opens to a panorama of uninterrupted bushveld. As in nature everything at Earth Lodge exists in harmony and you are immediately aware of a sense of calm and a restoring spirit.

Home to 13 ultra-luxurious suites including the Amber Presidential Suite, the lodge breaks with traditional bush lodge style to create a masterpiece of artistry and innovation.

Each of the suites at this luxury lodge features individually designed furniture, private plunge pool, en-suite glass fronted bathroom and indoor and outdoor shower. The natural wooden sculptures by renowned South African artist Geoffrey Armstrong add a powerful magic.

The Amber Suite is a glorious celebration of generous size and space. Beyond belief in its beauty, from the magnificent carved wooden headboard to the deep egg-shaped bath, the suite boasts its own steam room, study and kitchen. It captures the spirit of nature and luxury in one unique experience.

The Outdoor boma, its walls sculpted from tree roots and piled up piece by piece, captures the drama of the African night and evokes the power of the wilderness.

An indoor/outdoor dining area overlooking a waterhole and unending bushveld, a secluded library, art gallery, meditation garden; and an underground wine cellar with a collection of over 6000 bottles of rare wines, the venue for an unforgettable dining experience - everything at this luxury lodge has been created for your indulgence.

While on safari escape to the Amani Spa at Earth Lodge and indulge in holistic body, skin and beauty rituals, treatments and massages.

Each morning and evening you will depart from this luxury safari lodge into the wilderness, either by open Land Rover or on foot for a walking safari, accompanied by your armed and knowledgeable Game Ranger and Shangaan Tracker. Close enough to share in a thrilling encounter with Africa's beautiful wild creatures. Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa's magic. With no fences between the reserve and the Kruger Park, big game abounds, moving freely through this unspoiled part of the ancient African continent. The Reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife giving an excellent chance of close encounters with the 'Big Five' - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard - as well as wild dog and cheetah. With over 300 bird species, the reserve is a birdwatcher's delight.

Spend 3 nights at Sabi Earth Lodge in a suite including open Land Rover safaris by day and at night to see Africa's big game accompanied by qualified rangers and trackers, environmental awareness walking safaris, breakfast, lunch and "boma" dinner and a house selection of beverages, a fine selection of sundowner drinks during your evening safari as well as return transfers from the Sabi Sabi Airstrip are complimentary.

Day 10-12: Camp Jabulani, Kruger National Park, South Africa

Depart the Sabi Sands on a light aircraft transfer to Hoedspruit airport. You will be met on arrival by a Camp Jabulani guide and driven to the lodge.

Camp Jabulani is a perfect translation of the African bush, seamlessly blending classic and elegant interiors (fit for princes and kings, but warm enough to make the most "down-to-earth" feel completely at home) with the natural bush beyond.  A camp of and within the elements!

Rich textures of organic elements create a harmonious and pleasing balance between "designer" and "authentic". Grass-pressed mud walls, stone floors and thatched roofs are but some of the natural features guests may expect to find.  An open flow of light and air allow for a communion with the African bush without forsaking optimum comfort. Rich woods, crystal glasses, silver service somehow seamlessly blend into an experience of genuine hospitality and sensory indulgence.

The camp is built along the bank of a seasonal stream. An open-plan dining room and lounge merge with the wooden deck which lies in the shade of gigantic leadwood trees (around which the main facility was constructed). An impressive suspension bridge connects these living areas with the suites which lie scattered beyond the river bed.

The sole objective of the team of professionally skilled and personable staff is to meet the needs of their valued guests. To indulge, spoil, pamper and entertain. But most importantly - to share with them the story and the experience of the elephants.

Each of the six luxury suites is remote and private. Massive wooden sliding doors present interiors which are a pure translation of style, comfort, elegance and overall - an appreciation of the natural environment.  Pure cotton sheets, massive stone tubs, an outdoor glass-enclosed shower, a fire-place with a separate lounge area, and a private plunge pool complement each of the rooms. Suites are also equipped with a mini-bar, safe, hairdryer and electric blankets. Comfort is ensured by the 24 hour temperature control and overhead ceiling fan.

During the day the "walls" of the suites are rolled away to bring the bush just that bit closer. In the evenings, cozy lighting, a blazing fire and a welcoming bed draw to a perfect close another day in Africa.

Nothing quite tops the first introduction to the Camp Jabulani elephants! Their sheer size and presence are humbling.

Paul bridges the gap between man and giant with an informative introduction and orientation into the personalities of the elephants - providing useful information that will no doubt both entertain and educate. And so begins the elephant safari. Each participant is partnered with an elephant based on temperament. Guests mount their elephant via a specially constructed ramp. Saddles have been designed with comfort in mind - for both the elephants and riders. Made of high density foam (ensuring a light weight), they are built up laterally, and have both handles and stirrups.  Atop their mighty spines, guests soon become lulled by the step by step amble - the gentle "side to side" rocking motion. Moving in single file (with Jabulani in the lead), silence reigns. A silence with no words - but with beautiful harmonious communication of the bush and its inhabitants.

This private game reserve, situated in Limpopo Province, covers prime big-game territory and enjoys panoramic views of the nearby Drakensberg mountain range, and is only 40 km from the Kruger National Park. It is also central to the scenic areas of Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces.

As a result of a successful animal relocation programme, the reserve now supports a wide variety of game including elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, waterbuck, kudu and many other species of antelope. Predators include lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and many smaller species. Bird watching is most rewarding and more than 350 species have been recorded.

The reserve has gained a reputation as a centre for wildlife management and research. Although tourism features prominently, it is the aim of the owner and her team to maintain a balance between the demands of tourism and conservation.

Spend 3 nights at Camp Jabulani including 50% off the 03rd night, in luxury air-conditioned suites. Butler and daily laundry service. All meals, snacks, beverages and local branded alcoholic drinks. Daily activities including elephant excursions, game drives in open safari vehicles and guided bush walks, accompanied by experienced game rangers and expert elephant handlers. Additional activities such as clay pigeon shooting can be arranged on request. A visit to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Return road transfers between Camp Jabulani and Hoedspruit Airport.

Day 13: Departure

Your game ranger will drive you to Hoedspruit airport. Depart on South African Airways flight back to Johannesburg (flight excluded).
