South Africa & Zambia by Air

Luxury. Convenience. Exclusivity.

What makes this Private Safari truly iconic is the inclusion of Mfuwe Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The lodge has been hand-picked for this itinerary as you can land right on the lodge’s airstrip with the private turbo-prop aircraft – something that is not possible with larger aircrafts. You also have the unique chance to see a resident herd of elephant strolling through the reception area of the lodge in search of delicious fruit from the Wild Mango tree!

On this Luxury Private Safari you will also visit Timbavati Private Game Reserve bordering the Kruger National Park for abundant game viewings, the spectacular Victoria Falls to relax and unwind and the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town to end this spectacular Safari.

Experience luxury, convenience and exclusivity on our Luxury Private Safari. Expect exclusive treatment and memorable experiences from the moment you arrive. This unique itinerary has been tailor made by our travel experts ensuring a seamless journey that combines comfort, style and luxury to create the best Safari Southern Africa has to offer!

Apart from the Beechcraft King Air 350, you will also enjoy other exclusive transfers on your journey. This includes open game drive vehicles and exclusive vehicle transfers in Cape Town.
Private Game Drives
Private Game Drives
Game drives are interpretive drives in the bush in specially adapted four wheel drive vehicles, with the purpose of finding wildlife in a natural habitat. On a game drive you will be accompanied by ranger/guide (sometimes armed) with a comprehensive knowledge of all flora and fauna found in Sabi Sands. Besides the ranger normally a "tracker" joins the ranger, who is being seated on the front of the car in a small seat and scans the environment for (big) game. These are all very passionate people, who have a special ability to teach you about nature. Game drives normally take place twice a day: starting just after sunrise until 10am and from 3:30pm until sunset.
The Greater Kruger
The Greater Kruger
Big 5 Game Viewing

This is the ultimate South Africa safari destination. Timbavati Private Game Reserve is within the Greater Kruger National Park and offers a more up-close-and-personal safari experience. You are sure to experience an immaculate wildlife experience as the reserve is home to a high density of wildlife which includes the Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo). There are no fences between Kruger National Park and Timbavati, so wildlife roams freely in a huge natural environment.

Mfuwe Lodge
Mfuwe Lodge
Award-winning safari lodge set in the most prolific game area of the South Luangwa

The lodge is situated in the South Luangwa National Park, which is towards the north-eastern border of Zambia. The lodge has been hand-picked for this itinerary as commercial flights cannot land near the area and road transfers are long and tedious, making travel in a private turbo-prop aircraft ideal as you can land right on the lodge’s airstrip. This region of the park is renowned for its prolific game - giraffe, hippos, buffalo, antelope, and crocodile are constant visitors to Mfuwe Lodge's lagoon. Each year at Mfuwe Lodge whole families of elephants have been regular guests, visiting between late October and mid-December to feast on the fallen fruits from the large Wild Mango (Cordyla africana) tree in the lodge grounds. So don’t be alarmed if a herd of elephants make their way through the reception area!

The Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls
Spectacular Waterfall

Victoria Falls is on the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It has been described as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. Here, the Zambezi River plummets over a cliff and into the Boiling Pot before flowing through a series of gorges. The Devil’s Pool, a natural infinity pool, is on the edge of a sheer drop. The surrounding Zambezi National Park is home to white rhinos and elephants.

Cape Town
Cape Town
Natural Beauty and Culinary Delights

While walking through the city’s streets and meeting its people, you will fall in love with its natural beauty, creative freedom and incredible spirit.
