As part of its 2020 collection of extraordinary small group journeys, Abercrombie & Kent have released the new ‘Cape to Cairo’, one of six limited-edition adventures for the intrepid explorer. Led by an expert guide, the journey offers a balance of local activities and educational experiences and the opportunity for self-discovery and time at leisure.
Cape Town natural wonders will amaze
The epic 23-day journey traverses the continent, from Cape Town to the Egyptian capital introducing quintessential experiences along the way. Guests will experience Cape Town from many different perspectives, including a birds-eye view while riding a cable car up Table Mountain to admire the breathtaking panoramic views. The trip continues in an iconic road trip along the Atlantic coast, past beautiful beaches, with the chance to marvel at local wildlife such as the rare bontebok, eland and Cape mountain zebra and get up close to the adorable, but endangered, jackass penguins at Boulders beach.
Travellers will experience some of the country’s leading vineyards on an exploration of the Cape Winelands. Meander through Stellenbosch admiring the charming Cape Dutch architecture of Franschhoek and Paarl, and taste some of the finest wines South Africa has to offer.
The adventure continues, with an amazing walking tour of the impressive Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Get up close to the thundering cascades, marvel at the volume of water and admire the dancing rainbows.
Departing Zimbabwe and flying into Kenya, travellers will spend their days on immersive safari encounters witnessing natural marvels: a pride of lion stalking its prey; a leopard retrieving its kill; sparring wildebeest; or perhaps herds of elephant meandering along ancient trails.
Experience the historical wonders of Egypt
Leaving the vast plains of the Cape behind, the second part of the journey will see guests absorbing the historical treasures of Cairo. Travelling the Nile on a luxury cruise ship, Tour Directors and Egyptologists share their knowledge as travellers disembark to explore the city’s impressive natural and constructed wonders.
Explore the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, the Mighty Pyramids, the spectacular Sphynx, the legendary Luxor Temple and the Valley of the Kings, marvelling at the impressive structures steeped in history. Farewelling the adventure with a sunset dinner on the Nile, after days spent immersed in awe-inspiring architecture and natural wonders, the ‘Cape to Cairo’ journey is truly an adventure like no other.
