Short Description

Don't want to compromise? Think of this trip as the best of the best.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Cape Town

The adventure begins. Drop off your bags at the hotel and meet your Trip Manager and new Contiki fam in the lobby. We'll all walk across to the food market next door for your choice of dinner along with some drinks to get to know each other.

Day 2: Cape Town

Our time in Cape Town is dedicated to sightseeing and today is no exception. We start at the very top with a cable car ride up Table Mountain, followed by a city tour of Cape Town so you can navigate your way around this coastal city. The rest of the day is at your leisure, either exploring the city yourself on foot or relaxing on one of Cape Town's beautiful beaches, before finding yourself some dinner at one of the local hotspots.

Day 3: Cape Town

After breakfast, this is your day to take advantage of the abundance of local excursions available to Cape Town. Our favourite is a scenic drive along the cliffs of Chapman's Peak down to the tip of Africa, to see where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet at Cape Point. This is followed by a stop at Boulders Beach, home to a colony of African penguins. For the perfect afternoon activity, you can't go wrong with a classic wine tasting tour of the Cape Winelands, sampling some of Africa's best.

Day 4: Cape Town to Kruger National Park

Today we fly to Johannesburg, the city of Gold, where we jump in vehicles for our trip up to Kruger National Park.We'll drive alongside incredible gorges and scenery as we travel to the Kruger Park to our own lodge for the night. Here the Kruger National Park awaits us. Site of the epic YouTube viral video Battle at Kruger, the Park is a sprawling wilderness of bush and terrain that houses the famous Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo) along with hundreds of species of native birds, ancient trees and meandering rivers. It's ours to explore for the next two days.

Day 5: Kruger National Park

We're up early for our first taste of the fresh morning air that tells us we're deep in the African bush. We'll venture through to the Park gate and enter at sunrise, just the right time to see some of Africa's elusive predators finishing off their nocturnal hunts. We'll eat our packed breakfast at one of the picnic spots and discover who of us has the 'Luck of the bush' and best spotting eyes between us. Lunch will be at one of the main camps in the park and we'll relax here in the midday heat. In the afternoon we depart for another game drive, as the temperatures start cooling and the wildlife become more active, and we make our way to the park exit for sunset.

Day 6: Kruger National Park

The game of hide and seek continues as we traverse the Park, keeping our eyes open for any wildlife that evaded us the day before. A packed breakfast will keep our stomachs settled as we keep our eyes peeled for any movement of giraffe, hyena, antelope and rhinoceros lurking deep in the bush. We depart the Park in the afternoon and drive halfway to Johannesburg.

Day 7: Kruger National Park to Victoria Falls

We travel back to Johannesburg to catch our flight up to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.After lunch on our flight we'll check into our accommodation and drop off our bags. Today we're off for a hike along the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders and the largest waterfall in the world. You might want to pack your raincoat, as during certain times of the year you can get drenched from the rising spray, giving the falls its local name: 'The smoke that thunders'. The evening will be for the more adventurous, with opportunities for jumping, swinging or ziplining over the mighty Zambezi river, right next to the magnificent falls.

Day 8: Victoria Falls

Today is all about adventure. You can sign up for rafting down the Zambezi, one of the world's best white water rapids. Take a scenic helicopter flight over the spectacular falls and neighbouring wildlife reserve, seeing some of Africa's famous animals from above for a truly unforgettable experience. Or for the less adventurous, try your hand at Africa's own kind of escape room - the Tribal Trap. The rest of the day is yours to relax, or head out to join a local Boma buffet dinner, complete with traditional dancers and drumming for something a bit different.

Day 9: Victoria Falls to Chobe

We leave the spray of the Falls behind us as we travel across the border to the prolific wildlife-rich haven that is Botswana.Please note, the overnight camping in Chobe not available from 27 October to end of February due to the rainy season. The two nights in Chobe will be spent at the lodge with afternoon and morning game drives will still included.We enjoy lunch and leisure time at our lodge before we take our overnight bags into open Safari vehicles with our own personal guides, and drive to the famous Chobe National Park. Known for having the largest density of elephants, driving along the Chobe River front is a non-stop action adventure with wildlife coming and going, quenching their thirst in the hot African sun. Then to top this off, this is the night where you get to truly experience the wilderness of Africa: by a night out in the middle of the African bush. We have a private Contiki site exclusively set up just for you with your own guides, cooks and a bonfire set under the African stars. After a deliciously prepared meal, lying in your tent that night you will fall asleep to the sounds of Africa: a jackal calling in the distance, the loud whoop of a hyena, and perhaps the roar of lions seeking each other out after their daytime slumber.

Day 10: Chobe

This morning we'll wake up to watch the sunrise over the African bush with a light breakfast, before departing on a morning game drive to hopefully see some of the wildlife we may have heard the night before. We'll arrive late morning to check into our new lodge and spend the rest of the day relaxing around the pool and swapping stories from the night before. Our last evening together will end off with a sunset cruise on the Chobe river. Surrounded by pods of hippos, with crocs basking on the banks and all forms of African animals coming down to drink, this is truly one African sunset you'll never forget.

Day 11: Depart Chobe

It's time for our last breakfast together this morning before you're dropped off at Kasane Airport or make the journey back to Victoria Falls. Time to say goodbye to your group and swap numbers so you can stay in touch until the next amazing adventure.

I did the European Escapade tour in 2015 with Contiki and out of all my travelling memories from that year it certainly sticks out as the most wild!! The group I went on tour with made it all the worth while. The tour itself did the most touristy places in Europe you could imagine with about 2 days in each place. Definitely great for a taster of European culture and history. I loved it!!

Warning!!! If your planning on doing a Contiki, you must realize one thing. Once your Contiki journey is over there is no going up. Anything & everything you do after contiki will never be just quite the same. Be prepared to meet the most incredible people you will ever meet, visit some of the most breath taking places in the world, and make memories you could only ever dream of having. Be prepared to have the time of your life, but also be prepared to leave the places, the people and who you used to be behind. Be prepared to never feel completely at home again because part of your heart will always be else where. Its the price you pay for traveling the world. So if your scrolling through your Instagram wishing you could be the girl in front of the eiffel tower, stop right now because it can be you. This life is yours and you'll never be this young again so take a risk and book the trip of your life time.

I have to say, going on a Contiki was one of the most impulsive and incredible decisions I've ever made. It was without a doubt one of the most inspiring and breathtaking trips around Europe I've ever had the pleasure of doing, especially around places I'd never think to go and with people who are entirely like-minded! Deciding to go alone was probably the best decision, as I fit so seamlessly in with the people on my tour, it was like we'd known each other for ages! It was on my trip that I made the best friend I could ever hope for, and even went to her native Australia to spend more time with her once the trip was over! Contiki completely transformed my life, giving me more confidence, enthusiasm and excitement for life - I can't wait to go on another!!

I've now done 3 Contiki Tours to date. They are the most well organized, fun tours that are on the market. You see all the hot spots to a town and get real insider information from the Tour Managers who are also some of the best people you will meet!!
