ABERCROMBIE & Kent (A&K) has released an epic new 23-day Cape to Cairo Limited Edition Small Group Journey which traverses the continent from south to north and includes immersive encounters along the way.
The journey follows the vision of colonialist Cecil Rhodes, whose grand dream of connecting the African continent by rail from south to north was never realised.
A week is spent in South Africa, starting off with digs at Cape Town’s most iconic hotel, Belmond Mount Nelson and days exploring all the highlights from Table Mountain to Cape Point and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, featuring private guiding throughout.
A full day is dedicated to visiting vineyards on an exploration of the Cape winelands, with travellers able to meander through Stellenbosch, admire the charming Cape Dutch architecture of Franschhoek and Paarl and taste some of South Africa’s finest wines.
Next up is The Sabi Sands and Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, with its awe-inspiring wildlife experiences and luxe lodgings.
The journey then continues onwards to the thundering Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe then north to Kenya for big game viewing on the savannah of the Masai Mara.
The final stop is Egypt, where travellers can learn about the 5,000 years of history in Cairo and indulge in a luxury Nile cruise.
Prices start from $35,990 for a maximum of 18 guests, with departures in February and August.
