Safari Vacation
Day 1
You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
  
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 2
Today your guide will collect you for a full day tour of Cape Town.
 
We start with a short tour to see the key historical and architectural sites of the "Mother City". Weather permitting, we will then ascend Table Mountain by cable car to enjoy one of the world’s most famous views (alternatively we drive up Signal Hill, with its wonderful view point).
 
We continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, where there is the option to take a boat ride to see the Cape Fur seals at Seal Island (pay locally).
 
Afterwards we visit Kirstenbosch Gardens, nestled on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and regarded as one the most beautiful botanic gardens in the world. Bequeathed to the nation by Cecil John Rhodes, the garden was established 1913. There is an avenue of camphor trees, a beautiful protea and fynbos garden, useful plants garden, sculpture garden and a dell garden as well as a world class collection of indigenous South African flora. Wonderful summer sunset concerts are held in the gardens on Sunday evenings from December to March.
 
Note: For the optional trip to Seal Island you will be lifted in your manual wheelchair into the boat, so this will not be possible for very heavy guests, nor for power chairs. If you prone to travel sickness, you may want to take preventative tablets in advance. There is no accessible toilet on the boat.
Day 3
You will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Clock Tower on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for the ferry to Robben Island, the infamous prison home of Nelson Mandela. The guides are all former prisoners, each able to provide their own personal insight into conditions on the island and a very poignant experience.
 
Afterwards explore the shops and restaurants of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with your guide, before being dropped of at your hotel at the end of the day.
 
Note: You will need to take your passport for identification, when visiting Robben Island. Robben Island is not very accessible. You will be lifted on and off the ferry in your wheelchair - so this activity is not suitable for heavy guests or power chairs. There are also some steps at the prison that you will need to be lifted over.
Day 4
Today your guide will collect you for a full day tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
  
Enjoy wonderful ocean views as we drive around the Cape Peninsula to naval Simonstown, where we visit the resident penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
 
We continue to Cape Point where we hope to see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July to November). We take an accessible funicular ride up to the Old Lighthouse, before returning via spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to Cape Town.
Day 5
Enjoy a full day tour through the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry. We visit the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several different wine estates – sampling as we go.
  
After lunch at a good restaurant or wine estate (own account), there is the option of more wine tasting or a visit to the Cheetah Outreach Project in Somerset West on the way home (pay entrance fee locally).
Day 6
Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Victoria Falls Airport and transferred to your hotel near the mighty Zambezi River.
 
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains, but they are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
Note: As there is no lifting equipment at the airport, you will be carried on and off the aircraft using an aisle chair. Accommodation is also not fully accessible & very limited.
Day 7
Today we visit the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest, which offers magnificent views.
 
Afterwards you can participate in other optional activities such as an elephant interaction.
 
In the late afternoon enjoy a Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see hippos, crocodiles and abundant bird life.
 
Note: We suggest you take your own raincoat for the rainforest, as those on hire are well used. On the Zambezi cruise you will need to be lifted into the boat, so this excursion is only suitable for manual wheelchairs. There is no accessible toilet on board.
Day 8
Today transfer from Victoria Falls for 2.5 to 5-hours (depending on location) to your safari lodge in Hwange National Park, the largest game park in Zimbabwe.
 
Check in, settle in and relax in this remote wildlife area before enjoying a thrilling safari drive in an open top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. With over 100 different species of mammals, including huge herds of elephants and many predators, a marvellous wildlife experience is guaranteed. The bird life is also outstanding.
Day 9
Today is devoted to game viewing in Hwange National Park, which is the size of Belgium.
 
Rise early to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open top game drive in Hwange National Park with your ranger. Covering a vast area of over 5,600 square miles (14,600 square kilometres) and in close proximity to the arid Kalahari desert, this remote wildlife sanctuary is renowned for its enormous population of elephants, as well as vast herds of buffalo, zebra and giraffe. It is home to many predators including lions, hyena and endangered wild dogs which are thriving in the region.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. Enjoy another spectacular African sunset before relaxing around an open fire.
 
Note: You need some upper body strength for this safari, as you will need to be lifted into the front seat of the game viewing vehicle. Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives.
Day 10
This morning leave Hwange National Park and transfer 2.5 to 4-hours (depending on your lodge location) to Victoria Falls.
 
Check into your hotel and relax in your warm African surroundings.
Day 11
Transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
 
Note: As there is no lifting equipment at the airport, you will be carried on and off the aircraft using an aisle chair. Accommodation is also not fully accessible & very limited.
