Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 – Cape Town

Your private guide will be waiting for you at the airport and escort you to the exclusive Ellerman House, where you'll reside for the next four nights.

Our program is of a relaxed nature and the afternoon is reserved for Cape Town's most famous High Tea: Served in the beautiful gardens of Belmond's Mount Nelson Hotel.

From sweet to savoury treats and not to forget Mount Nelson's own tea blend - High Tea at Mount Nelson is an institution not to be missed while in Cape Town.

We added a glass of bubbly to welcome you in a proper way - Enjoy!

Day 2 - Cape Town- Culinary experience

Today's privately guided tour is all about enlightening your senses: 

The inner city foodie walking journey is about more than just food, this is a culinary experience.

Our walking tour will take around four hours, stopping at between six to nine different eateries along the way. At the eateries you will experience a wide variety of what Cape Town food has to offer from the culturally important, new and trendy to the African tastes. Along the walk our experienced guide will also share with you the history of Cape Town, show you important landmarks, point out interesting facts about the city and make you feel right at home.

By the end of the tour you will have covered most of the city centre, you will be acquainted with the local food and neighbourhoods and leave with a full tummy.

This is a very special way to experience good food, culture and history of Cape Town.

Day 3 - Cape Town - Helicopter Experience over Cape Town and Wine lands

Travelling to famous V&A Waterfront, where your helicopter starts the engines just for you.

The Three Bays scenic flight is a fantastic opportunity to witness the grandeur of the Cape's coastline. The route includes all of Cape Town's most scenic towns and suburbs: Camps Bay, Hout Bay, Muizenberg, Twelve Apostles, Noordhoek and Constantia. Enjoy a bird's eye view of the fairest Cape's striking beauty.

Thereafter you will be literally whisked away by the helicopter towards the wine lands, only to land on one of the most historical and beautiful wine estates:

Vergelegen, which means far away ...

Weather permitting enjoy a "white tablecloth" picnic at Vergelegen's mystic Camphor Forest, spend your afternoon with wine tastings, relaxing under the trees ...

Your pilot will wait until you have finished with your activities before safely flying you back to Cape Town.

Day 4 – Cape Town

A day at leisure with wine pairing dinner in the evening at the Roundhouse, situated at the foot of Table Mountain.

A former guardhouse for the Dutch East India Company, its sweeping and commanding views over Camps Bay made it the perfect location to safe-guard the Cape from attacks.

Today's Roundhouse spoils its guests with exquisite cuisine, an extensive wine list and exceptional service.

Day 5 - 9 - Chiawa Camp, Lower Zambezi

Fly by private charter from Cape Town to Royal airstrip in the Lower Zambezi area and a transfer by road and boat will have you arrive safely at your camp.

A perfect time for High Tea and exploration of the bush with your ranger and scout during a night drive.

Who will be the first one to spot leopards and hyenas?

As the sun sets, we'll serve sundowners and the last stretch back to the lodge will be driven in complete darkness, with only the stars as guiding lights.

Here at Chiawa, every meal is a culinary experience and served in a special location.

The variety, choice and flexibility of activities is something very seldom experienced anywhere else:

Night and day game drives, walks, canoeing, boat safaris and catch & release angling will keep you entertained and the stargazing is one of the best you have ever seen.

You will feel in tune with nature and recharge your batteries - disconnect to reconnect!

Day 9 - 15 - Thanda Island, Mafia Island

Cross the mighty Zambezi again, as you travel back to Royal Airstrip, where your pilots are waiting for you for your onward journey to Thanda Island.

Thanda Island is one of the world's most exclusive island getaways, a paradise for you to enjoy in complete privacy with family and friends.

It took ten years to discover and to develop this remarkably uncommon destination as a very special, totally private island getaway that you are now invited to experience.

The tropical island offers accommodation in a single luxurious villa and two traditional Tanzanian Bandas in the Indian Ocean, off the east coast of Tanzania.

Situated in its own marine reserve, you can bathe in blue heaven with the gentlest giants of the ocean, the whale shark and watch sea turtles nesting. Here you can rest, rejuvenate and enjoy adventure sports, where shades of turquoise infuse your days and tropical spices your nights.

Day 15 – Departure

It is your last day in paradise, so enjoy before you have to bid farewell to your Island in the tropical sun and your pilots make sure you travel back safely to Dar es Salaam for your flight back home.
