Our bucket-list Africa holiday is designed for those who may only visit the continent once, and want to tick off as many highlights as possible, and to do it in style. Your own 'Out of Africa' experience, this epic trip will have you visiting 4 countries, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Kenya, all while being hosted in the finest accommodation on offer.

Begin in one of the world's most beautiful cities, Cape Town staying at the exclusive Ellerman House, a historic Cape Edwardian mansion in Bantry Bay with spectacular Atlantic Ocean views against the dramatic backdrop of Lion's Head. All the local attractions such as the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, Camps Bay, and V&A Waterfront are 10 minutes by car and Clifton's sheltered beaches are within walking distance.

It is then time to fly into the wilds of the Okavango Delta in Botswana to stay at luxurious tented camp, Mombo Camp, situated in arguably the best game area on the continent, home to enormous concentrations of plains game and predators, which begin virtually on Mombo's decks. When you aren't enjoying game drives with some of the best guides in Africa, expect to be wined and dined by the attentive and friendly staff.

No bucket-list trip to Africa is complete without a visit to Victoria Falls, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. You will visit the Falls on the Zambian side staying at Toka Leya Camp, overlooking the Zambezi River. Other activities in the area include river cruises, fishing, rhino tracking and a host of adrenalin adventures such as white water rafting and bungee jumping.

End off this once-in-a-lifetime experience in the home of safari, Kenya, in its most famous park, the Masai Mara. Staying at Mara Plains Camp, within a private conservancy, bordering the national reserve, you can expect the lowest vehicle density in the Maasai Mara region, while also having the highest concentration of big cats anywhere in Africa. From July to Oct, the great wildebeest migration arrives in the Mara and adds even more drama to an eco-system already teeming with wildlife. The luxury tents at Mara Plains are elegant yet understated, with touches of Africa as well as the early colonial explorers. Enjoy day and night game drives here and why not end off on a high with a hot air balloon safari.
