Magic of Africa – South Africa, Zimbabwe, & Botswana
A shortlist of the world’s most beautiful cities is bound to include Cape Town, South Africa. You’ll fall under its spell from the moment you check in to the Twelve Apostles, a luxury hotel with a spectacular oceanfront setting overlooking Table Mountain. And you’ll get to know the destination by visiting Cape Hope, taking the Walk to Freedom and visiting Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, and sampling Pinotage and sparkling Chenin Blanc in the Winelands. From wine, you’ll turn your attention to wildlife with a stay at a private game lodge in Sabi Sands, adjacent to Kruger National Park. The next few days will involve morning and afternoon game drives, fantastic meals, and educational and photographic opportunities. Fly to experience Victoria Falls, a.k.a., “the smoke that thunders.” Then enter Botswana and board the elegant Zambezi Queen for a two-night river cruise, with a chance to visit a village in Namibia the following day. Fly home from Botswana, or consider adding a few nights in the Okavango Delta.
