About

11-day African adventure including Cape Town, Safari and Victoria Falls!

 

From exotic game drives to wine tours, enjoy the finest accommodations, as Brand g Vacations explores South Africa’s vibrant Cape Town, Kruger National Park and acclaimed Victoria Falls!

We begin in Cape Town, were you will be amazed by the beauty of the city, with its gorgeous beach scene, great restaurants and active nightlife. Included is a tour of the Cape Winelands, visit to Cape of Good Hope and a trip to Table Mountain, recently voted as one of the New 7-Natural Wonders of the World.

 

From Cape Town, fly to Nelspruit and transfer to South Africa’s premier private game viewing destination, the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve. This acclaimed reserve offers exceptional game viewing and equally exceptional accommodations. The success of big game viewing within the Sabi Sabi is legendary. Elephants, leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, antelope and other species can be closely observed in their natural environment.

 

No trip to Africa would be complete without a visit to Victoria Falls, which you’ll have the opportunity to explore by water, land, and helicopter. Here we will overnight at the internationally acclaimed Victoria Falls Hotel. The Victoria Falls Hotel, popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park

Land Accommodations

Table Bay Hotel

 

The Table Bay offers the ultimate in 5-star luxury hotel accommodation in Cape Town. Considered to be the best address in Cape Town, this sophisticated Sun International property was opened in May 1997 by former South African president, Nelson Mandela. As part of the Sunlux Collection, The Table Bay continues to set its own standards in international service, cuisine and luxury.

 

Inspired by the boundless creative energy of the city that it calls home, The Table Bay offers unrivalled Victoria and Alfred Waterfront accommodation which celebrates Cape Town’s colourful cultural heritage, evocative romance and irresistible spirit of adventure. Straddling the working harbour and vibrant city bowl beneath the majestic zenith of Table Mountain, The Table Bay enjoys the best address in Cape Town, and invites you to discover an authentic South African 5-star experience in the Mother City.

 

Earth Lodge 

 

Earth Lodge is a sanctuary. Uniquely so, as it is for both humans and animals. For the former it is a retreat to the wilderness. For the latter, part of a vast conservation known as Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. The lodge’s organic architecture is completely respectful of the environment. Whilst submerged in nature, its size and form never intrude on its magnificent host. The entire lodge features an unusual, unadorned finish that has been achieved by blending natural elements such as straw, stone and pigment into the cement plaster. The natural bush vegetation that grows right up to the lodge building further enhances this natural feel.

 

The style of the unique architecture was inspired by ‘Earth Shelter Architecture’ from the Middle Ages, where the buildings are excavated into the slopes of the site, and the sand and plants are put back onto the roofs. The result is what has been termed by a visiting conservationist ‘the most ecologically-sensitively-designed lodge in Africa’. The buildings merge so well into the landscape, they are virtually invisible.

 

Selati Camp

 

To visit Selati Camp is to travel back in time. Small, exclusive and brimming with history, colonial elegance and African legend, the camp is perched near the historic Selati Railway line after which it was named. Fashioned in the colonial, ‘Out of Africa’ style, Selati nestles under majestic Acacia Trees lining the Msuthlu River. Situated between the Sabie and Sand Rivers, Selati lies on an animal migration path, with game traversing between the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Reserve. This daily search for water and food is an ancient rhythm and here it happens right around you as you sip your sundowner or wake to a dawn chorus of hundreds of bushveld birds.

 

Nights at Selati are quiet, intimate and possess a rare magic. Some say it is the hand of Selati’s namesake, the legendary female chief of the ancient Thubela tribe, others, the gentle glow of the lamps. Whatever it is, it has made Selati Camp an essential pilgrimage for romantic souls far and wide.

 

Victoria Falls Hotel

 

The internationally acclaimed Victoria Falls Hotel is set in acres of private gardens, and was established in 1904. For over 90 years visiting members of Royal families, Heads of State, celebrities, authors, journalists and poets, have preferred to stay at the Victoria Falls Hotel where they are assured of total privacy, comfort and care.

 

All rooms are well appointed, cool and comfortable – each room is air-conditioned, with every modern amenity. The beautifully appointed Edwardian swimming pool, surrounded by lush gardens and exotic trees, give total privacy.
