Day 2: Cape Town

Boasting a booming culinary scene that perfectly showcases the many flavors of the ‘rainbow nation’, Cape Town is without a doubt the de facto culinary capital of South Africa. Explore Cape Town through its dazzling variety of flavors on a private walking tour of the City Bowl. This morning make your way to ‘The 2 Eves’ restaurant on the corner of Kloof and Buitensingel Streets, the starting point of your delicious adventure where your insider guide awaits. What follows is a culinary journey through the streets of Cape Town. Stop at a carefully picked selection of local restaurants and indulge in some of the city’s best bites and drinks. All the while gain a better insight into the local culture, history and food trends from your knowledgeable guide. The tour follows a circular route and concludes back at ‘The 2 Eves’, from where you may continue your exploration of the city or head back to your hotel.             

One of the oldest mountains on the planet, the majestic Table Mountain has proudly guarded the gates to Southern Africa for millions of years. Today, set out to visit this iconic Cape Town landmark, easily explored on your own. Make your way to the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway station where your journey to the summit begins. Step aboard one of the rotating cable cars and take in the views of the city bowl below and enjoy a closer look at the mountain’s weathered slopes. Once you’ve reached the top, a breathtaking panorama of the Mother City and the turquoise waters of the Atlantic stretching as far as the eye can see immediately unfolds. You may choose to take advantage of one of the three easy walking trails allowing you to see various parts of the city and get up close to a variety of native flora and fauna. Take the short Dassie Walk for a chance to admire spectacular views of the north, west and south flanks of the mountain. A slightly longer Agama Walk showcases panoramic vistas of Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula. The Klipspringer Walk runs along the plateau edge and past the dramatic Platteklip Gorge, giving you the chance to soak in the beauty of the city and its surrounds in all of their glory. Alternatively, you may opt to take a free guided walk departing from the Twelve Apostles Terrace on the hour from 9 am to 3 pm.  Upon return to the visitor center area, enjoy a well-deserved drink or snack at the Table Mountain Café or perhaps browse the wide selection of souvenirs at the Shop At The Top before taking the cable car back to the bottom of the mountain.       

The V&A Waterfront is surely one of the top attractions in Cape Town no matter your age, interests or group dynamic. To name a few highlights, the Two Oceans Aquarium is home is an incredible array of exotic, seemingly other-worldly creatures from the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Behind the aquarium, a small colony of Cape fur seals are almost always found on the docks, ready and waiting to pose for your camera. Chavonnes Battery, Cape Town’s first fortification, is now a museum with artifacts from centuries past. At the heart of the waterfront lies the Clock Tower of Cape Town and for those wanting to learn more about the harbor's history, a stop at the SA Maritime Museum is a must. For your shopping needs, a visit to the Victoria Wharf Shopping Center is the perfect stopover for designer items and authentic Cape souvenirs.

Day 3: Cape Town

After meeting your expert local guide in Cape Town, begin the day with a visit to one of the more popular leisure hubs for locals – the glorious beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, where impressive white sand beaches hug the shoreline with the Twelve Apostles as a stunning backdrop. Learn about the fascinating history of this breathtaking land from your Capetonian guide as you begin the spectacular sea-side drive to the quaint village of Hout Bay. After a stop in the village, you will track along the extraordinary Chapman’s Peak Drive, known as one of the most picturesque roadways world-wide. With the flexibility to spend as little or as long as you would like in this region crammed with incredible panoramic lookouts, the benefits of having a private vehicle and guide truly come into play. Further along you will reach the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve where, at Cape Point, you will board a funicular or walk up the stairway that leads to the Cape Point Lighthouse; it is here that you will observe the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans while enjoying fantastic views of False Bay. Departing from Cape Point, head northward to Simon’s Town to enjoy lunch (included). Although the city is host to a number of tasty dining options, consider indulging in fresh-caught fish & chips, the town’s specialty. After a refreshing lunch and a bit of time to learn about Simon’s Town, set off with your camera ready to visit Boulders Beach, a nearby nature preserve that is home to a colony of African penguins. Wrapping up your day’s adventure, tour the idyllic Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a sprawling park brimming with rare and exotic plant-life that is surely one the finest examples of botany the world over, before being returned to your hotel.

From street-side tapas to award winning cuisine, let our Destination Experts help you find the right dining option for your appetite. Some of our favorite spots include; Chef’s Warehouse, Bistro Sixteen82, The Foodbarn, Potluck Club, Plant, Shortmarket Club, Harbour House and Black Sheep Restaurant.

Having had the chance to settle into your lodging - and to prepare for an adventure - meet with other guests of the camp to set out on your first authentic game drive. Sunrise and sunset are when animals are most active, and the Greater Kruger Area features some of the largest private game reserves in Africa, home to an incredible range of wildlife including the Big 5: the African elephant, lion, leopard, Cape buffalo and rhinoceros. Spanning across the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, the Greater Kruger Area covers a near unfathomable span of land upon which animals both large and small prowl, graze and roam free.

Day 7: Kruger

Ahead of first light it’s time set out on an early morning game drive to discover the many animals that stalk through the bush during the early hours of the day. This is one of the best times time to view game, and it is made all the more spectacular as the rising sun dawns upon the unspoiled African bush; the world over, this place is known as the Land of the Rising Sun. Prepare to spot resident predators enjoying the spoils of their hunt the night before and a dizzying range of smaller mammals and bird life. After a few hours of exploration, photography and education, you will return to the lodge for a mouth-watering, well-earned, fresh-made breakfast.

Continue your day after lunch with an exciting afternoon game drive. Perhaps the day will include massive, lumbering hippos emerging from the water to snack on nearby grasses, or predators beginning their nightly hunt as grazing antelope roam the plains. Out on the open reserves, trace across new lands as you gain a deeper and more intimate understanding of the South African bushveld before returning to the lodge for another fantastic dinner.

Day 8: Kruger

Before the blistering sun takes its place high in the African sky make use of the opportunity to discover even more wild game. First thing in the morning, depart to discover the animals of the Greater Kruger Area, home to herds of trumpeting elephants that gently wander through the savannah; will today be the day you see them first-hand?

Night drives allow you to see nocturnal animals that are not encountered during the day, and a host of daylight animals behaving quite differently. Setting out as dusk begins, you may spot leopards in particular, and with a bit of luck, you may even encounter these predators while on the hunt. During evening drives, trackers employ a powerful spotlight to search for and showcase predators and prey. Lions, hyenas, aardvarks, bat-eared fox, porcupines, bush babies, bushbucks, mongoose, genet cats and nocturnal birds like owls and nightjars are just some of the animals fortunate guests may spot this evening under the African starlit sky.

  • Angelia M — June 22, 2019 — Africa

    My Kenya trip was seriously the best trip of my life, and I absolutely loved every second of it! It was my dream vacation and the reality far exceeded the dream. Catherine, my trip consultant, answered all of my many questions and made sure everything went super smoothly. Daniel, my guide, was so fun, interesting, and informative. He went out of his way to make sure my trip was special. I really can't put into words how much I loved it other than I'm already thinking about another trip to Africa. I will definitely be using Kensington Tours again!

  • Chris S — May 17, 2019 — Africa

    Our guide Elisha was absolutely incredible! He was friendly, helpful, funny, and remarkably knowledgeable about the area, the animals, and especially the birds! The accommodations were excellent and the staff at those places was wonderful. The Kubu Kubu tent camp in Serengeti was particularly special, and we felt truly appreciated and pampered by the staff. With their smiling help, we even learned some Swahili! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

  • Paul E — May 01, 2019 — Africa

    We had no idea what to expect on this trip but exceeded even our wildest imagination. Daniel, with Kensington, laid out a wonderful plan. The upfront quality and detail on the proposal really sold us. The guides and local support crews on the trip, were on time, personable, and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Shamiel with Ilios Travel in Cape Town. He was joy and clearly loved sharing Cape Town with us.

  • Thomas S — June 14, 2019 — Africa

    Karen Johnson was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. Karen was readily available during the planning process and took the time to talk with and listen to us to find out about our wants and needs and ultimately designed our perfect vacation. We can not speak highly enough about her abilities.

  • Michael S — June 13, 2019 — Africa

    The trip was the best thing we have ever done. The people we dealt with were professional and made sure every part of our trip was trouble free.

  • Raymond D — March 22, 2019 — Africa

    The guides were friendly and very accommodating throughout my trip. One of the guides took me to the oldest tea house as a bonus on my tour. It was great being with the people and enjoying a cup of tea. My driver invited me to have Turkish coffee which was a very nice touch to my trip. The accommodations were phenomenal, being near the pyramids was outside of this world. The Kempinski Nile Hotel Garden City Cairo was a wonderful hotel as well. Gesa was great to work with! She was so nice and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. Especially during for the first part of my trip which had nothing to do with my tours with Kensington Tours. She planned everything out perfectly on my trip.

  • Donna M — June 02, 2019 — Africa

    The Kensington Kenya and Tanzania African Safari itinerary and experience exceeded all expectations. From the moment we were met at the airport, we were completely cared for. Our Destination Expert, Erin Cotton, even checked in on us during the trip. Our guides were excellent; Albert and Steve were exceptionally knowledgeable, organized and considerate. The accommodations were all fantastic with friendly staff, comfortable rooms for the family, and great food. Although the balloon trip over the Mara River was a highlight, each game drive was a memorable adventure as or guides toured Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and the Masai Mara. We got to spend some time in the local villages and dine with some of the other tourists in the middle of the bush and on a spectacular cliff overlooking the plains of Kenya and Tanzania. Most of all, every morning we looked forward to spending time with our guides searching for animals and learning more about the whole ecosystem.

  • Catherine L — May 05, 2019 — Africa

    Everything was absolutely wonderful - from the planning to the execution. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely work with Kensington on my next trip! (I'm headed to Hong Kong this December and think I should probably do some exploring while I'm there!)

  • Jennifer W — December 04, 2018 — Africa

    Our trip was amazing! The accommodations were lovely. Our safari guide made the experience memorable! Our only job was to relax and enjoy. The guide for our day in Sawato and to visit the Apartheid museum was extremely knowledgeable. This is our second trip with Kensington Tours. We will definitely use again.

  • Tanya R — February 20, 2019 — Africa

    We left everything to our tour rep, Louise Baer. She did a fantastic job. We had no expectations at all but were absolutely overwhelmed with our accommodations. We were treated so well by everyone. It was an unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Our drivers were fantastic. I felt so safe. Brilliant holiday. Thank you, Kensington!
