With our start in the magical Victorial Falls that offers a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ which means ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. To the precious Cape Town where we’ll find the Table Mountain and amazing Atlantis Ocean views.
Experience the best of South Africa in a luxurious and unique way. Enjoy a cabled car riding to summit to the top of Table Mountain, step back in time and re-live the magic and majesty of another era at Selati Camp, and never miss the fun with safari activities or game drives, with the best of amenities and selected beverages.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
It is this respect for the land that Earth Lodge’s culture imparts to its guests. Along with its legendary Sabi Sabi Big Five safaris, the lodge’s purpose is to let nothing stand in your way in re-kindling your bonds with earth.
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.
