Luxury African Safari
Travel to Southern Africa, renowned for its abundant wildlife, sensational scenery and ancient cultures with deep-rooted traditions.
Until the 1980s, most South African lodges were middle-market, and luxury meant a private tented camp erected by one of the famous outfitters, with the point being total immersion in the sights and sounds of the wild. Safari lodges now provide levels of comfort equivalent to those at five-star resorts.
Botswana’s Okavango Delta is ideal for a safari. Here, you will be surrounded by a primeval Africa that has scarcely changed in the past 20,000 years, where vast herds still roam over great distances, unimpeded by fences and oblivious to the modern world.
Journey to Southern Africa and experience one of Andrew Harper’s signature itineraries, and discover what the diverse people, history, wildlife and landscapes have to offer.
Day 1 : Johannesburg
On arrival in Johannesburg, you are met by your escort and privately transferred to your luxury hotel, The Saxon, a haven of tranquility in suburban Sandhurst with luxuriant gardens, imaginative interior design, delicious food and obliging staff. Andrew Harper finds it a delightful place in which to recuperate from a long transatlantic flight.
The rest of your afternoon is at leisure to explore on your own or enjoy the amenities of the beautiful hotel. Tonight, enjoy drinks and canapés before continuing to dinner.
