Day 1

After your arrival at Johannesburg International Airport, you are whisked away for the flight in the timeless Douglas DC-3 “Dakota” to our first stop on this grand voyage of adventure, Mashatu, in the heart of the Botswana bush.


You will fly low over the North-Western part of South Africa taking in the contrasts, from the Magaliesberg Mountain Range, then over the flat lands, seeing it as few have seen it before. Then seeing the landscape change as you cross over the vast expanses of South Africa, for a touchdown at the beautiful Limpopo Valley Airport.

Day 2

This is a day spent out in the bush on game drives taking in the beauty and wonders of Africa’s big game and bush.

Day 3

Day three and you take the short flight up to one of the seven natural wonders of the world: Victoria Falls. This is a short flight up to Livingstone, but is breathtakingly beautiful, as again you fly low level, following the winding Zambezi river up to the Victoria Falls, where you will have a great opportunity for more photos, as you fly over, and circle the falls, and giving you the opportunity to wonder at the immense size and power of the falls, as they are very seldom seen, before the DC–3 sets up for a landing at Livingstone. David Livingstone explored this land of potent beauty and discovered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. In his footprints, only moments away from the mighty Zambezi River with the dramatic torrent of the Victoria Falls as its natural milieu, a magnificent Resort has been created as a testament to his discovery and in reverence to the splendour of this World Heritage site. Journey to this magical place and witness the greatest mass of falling water on earth as it plunges down a sheer rock face, spraying its mystical mist hundreds of metres in the air. The awesome Victoria Falls is much closer to you here - literally on the doorstep of The Falls Resort - it feels as if you could reach out and touch it, as it plummets into the chasm far below.
There are few appropriate superlatives that have not already been applied to this magnificent natural wonder of the world; in many ways it defies description. So vast are the falls and their setting that it is difficult to grasp their true grandeur and for this reason, they are perhaps best seen from the air.

Day 4

The Victoria Falls offer an inescapable closeness to the natural elements. The towering column of spray when the river is high, the thunder of the falling water, the terrifying abyss that separates Zimbabwe from Zambia, the forest-lined, placid, tranquil lagoons upstream in which hippo and deadly crocodiles lurk.

Day 5

As you climb away from the mighty falls in the ever- classic DC–3, it is now time to head toward the playground of all the worlds rich and famous. After a magical low level flight in the ever reliable DC–3, taking in the moods and sights of the vast landscape of Botswana, from your bird’s eye seat, the runway at Pilansberg slips under the nose and your last stop on this African adventure beckons you, Sun City and its famous Lost City with its splendid and luxurious Lost City Palace hotel. This will be your cradle of luxury for your last night. Deep in the rugged Bushveld, in the heart of an ancient volcano,lies the world's most unique resort. This is the internationally acclaimed Sun City. The Resort has a unique heartbeat and an African rhythm of its own and is unlike any other Resort destination in the world.
