FAQs

  • Cape Town: The Cape, Safari & Falls trip ticks off all the major attractions in Southern Africa. This includes everything you’d want to see in a multi-country trip around Africa. We’ll visit the top attractions in Cape Town like Table Mountain, Cape Point, and even the penguins of Boulders Beach. Then we’ll go on plenty of game drives in top wildlife destinations such as Kruger and Chobe. And to satisfy our adventure-hungry souls, this trip includes a variety of activities. Does it get better than this? We sure don’t think so.
  • Cape Town: This is a multi-country trip, taking you to South Africa, Zimbabwe/Zambia as well as Botswana. For most of our travellers, there’s visa-free entry into South Africa and Botswana. For Zimbabwe, most of the travellers can get visas on arrival with our included flight to Victoria Falls.   Depending on your nationality, you may need to pay for a visa. (So don’t forget to keep some US dollars in hand before the start of the trip!) 
     We always encourage our travellers to check visa requirements for your country well in advance. Click here to find out visa requirements based on your home country.
  • Cape Town: It’ll change slightly depending on what time of year you’re visiting, but some essentials will include:

    Your camera
    Comfortable shoes & clothes for walking (including a beanie, gloves and warm jacket for open-top safari drives in the winter)
    Your swimming costume & towel
    Sun cream, a hat, sunglasses
    Insect repellent 
    A portable phone charger
    Binoculars (crucial for game drives to see animals in the distance)
    Day bag for daily activities
    Torch/Headlight
    Reusable water bottle

  • Cape Town: No matter what time of year you choose to visit, you’re guaranteed to have an incredible trip. Traditionally, the best time to go on safari in Africa is over the non-summer months – March to October. The vegetation is not as dense and wildlife come to waterholes to drink during the dry winter months. But the best time to visit Cape Town is in the summer! So you could say that it’s an all-year trip that’s great for both wildlife and adventure lovers.
  • Cape Town: Pretty darn good. The Cape, Safari & Falls trip has multiple game drives on offer (some of which are included)! These will be in the ‘Big 5’ mega Game Reserves of Kruger and Chobe (both are the size of a small country). On top of that, we’ll go on a walking safari close to the Victoria Falls. But it doesn’t end there.   A riverside boat cruise or two in the National Park will give us direct views to spot hippos, crocs and other wildlife coming down to drink. Will you get your wildlife fix? We definitely think so.
  • Cape Town: The question should be – what transport don’t we use on this trip? Coaches in Cape Town, safari trucks in Kruger, minivans for airport transfers, open-top safari jeeps, flights to and from Johannesburg with the chance to enjoy boat and helicopter rides.
  • Cape Town: Only the most visited tourist attraction in the whole of Africa! That’s right. In Cape Town, we’ll stay at the legendary V&A Waterfront. You’ll have access to a myriad of shops, bars, food markets, attractions and restaurants (all within 500m of our hotel). In Kruger and Chobe, we’re doing something special. We won’t stay outside the park (where all the hotels are located). Instead, we’ll spend our nights in the park, LITERALLY glamping under the stars, around a fire. If you’re lucky, you might even hear the rush of the river with hippos calling, lions roaring and hyenas whooping all around us. Now that’s a true African wildlife experience.   In Victoria Falls, we’ll either stay on the Zambezi River in Zambia or within Victoria Falls town in Zimbabwe. Both are within view of the spray from the falls (plus the wildlife that roam freely through the towns).

Included Experience

  • Cape Town: Stroll around the scenic harbour and enjoy some Insta-worthy views, at South Africa's most-visited attraction.
  • Cape Town: Cable the Table! Take a scenic ride to the top of one of the ‘New Seven Wonders of Nature’ for 360° views of Cape Town.
  • Cape Town: Bo-Kaap. The City Centre. V&A Waterfront. This tour takes in all the historical sites & attractions of the Mother City.
  • Kruger National Park: Keep your eyes peeled and those binoculars close. We're heading out to spot more magnificent wildlife (cross those fingers for rhino's!) and stunning scenery with our last game drive as we say goodbye to Kruger.
  • Victoria Falls: See the epic waterfall of your Insta dreams. Take a stroll along the edge and see this ‘the smoke that thunders’ in all its glory.

Make Travel Matter®
