Lagoons & Waterfalls

12 days - £2895 pp

Lagoons & Waterfalls offers a great diversity of experiences, starting with Cape Town – fondly also called ‘the Mother City’.  Your time here can be spent exploring this vibrant city as well as the surrounding areas.  There is so much to do and see – from a visit to the Waterfront for some shopping… or take a drive around the Cape Peninsula.  The sunseekers can laze away the days on one of Cliftons famous beaches or around the pool…   Cape Town also boasts some of the worlds best culinary experiences with a host of different restaurants to indulge in – with anything from a local dish to more international cusine…

The road then takes you up to the Garden Route where you will have three nights here, staying at a decadent owner run lodge where you will feel part of the family and be able to enjoy the many spaces of Kanonkop House!  The views from here are quite something and its hard not to get lost in this sweeping vista….

The holiday then winds down to the Winelands where you are staying in the heart of Franschhoek village and an easy stroll from the shops, pavement cafes and bistros.  There is a great atmosphere around this beautiful little village with its touch of French left by the Huguenots…

Finally you will fly up to Victoria Falls where the last nights are spent on a private island in the middle of the Zambezi….  Your guide will take you to see the Victoria Falls and perhaps you have some last minute giftst to get back home – the local crafters are so talented that you will be sure to find something!    Your stay here also includes daily game drives into the Zambezi National Park which can offer some rewarding game viewing.   For the adrenaline seekers, there is bungee jumping, white water rafting (some of the best 1 day grade 5 rapids!)… or if you prefer the slower side then there is always the option of a gentle sunset cruise on the river…  there really is something for everyone!

Day 1 - Arrival Cape Town

Arrival in Cape Town, collect your hire car and make your way to Three Boutique Hotel where you will be spending the next 5 nights in a luxury room inclusive of breakfast.

Why not start your holiday on a ‘high’ and head up to Table Mountain?!  From here you can enjoy a real birds eye perspective on the city and enjoy the sunset…  Or pop down to the Waterfront and soak up the great atmosphere which is so infectious that you could immediately feel that holiday vibe….
