Our Cape to Cairo itinerary begins with your arrival in Cape Town where you spend the night at Cape Cadogan: a luxury Victorian farmhouse declared a national monument in 1984. The hotel is just a short distance from Kloof Street, home to some of Cape Town’s best dining. If a boutique hotel isn’t for you, the hotel offers four luxury apartments within walking distance of the hotel.
After Cape Town, you will have the option of traveling to the Lion Sands luxury lodges. With four lodges and two villas, guests are spoiled for choice with options for their safari stay. From the family-friendly River Lodge to the exclusive Ivory Lodge, there’s something for everyone. Moreover, the private villas are a delightful way to experience the beauty of the African bush in exclusivity. In fact, the villas include your own private chef, staff, and safari vehicle with guide and tracker.
While at Lion Sands you will also have the journey to undertake a true South African safari. Led by the lodge’s expert team, enjoy a professional and holistic adventure that few others have the pleasure of experiencing.
From Cape to Cairo
After your safari in South Africa, you will fly from the Cape to Cairo to tour the land of the pharaohs. While there, you will stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at the First Residence where you will enjoy unparalleled service and hospitality. The hotel’s premier location overlooking the Pyramids of Giza makes it the hotel of choice for weary adventurers.
While in Cairo you will have the opportunity to visit the Khan El Khalili Bazaar. Also called the Turkish Bazaar, this open-air shopping center, built in 1832, was central to the Spice Trade. Notably, it was this trade in goods that was responsible for Cairo’s early wealth. This great wealth forced European explorers to find alternate routes to the Indies to break the Mamluk monopoly.
