Victoria Falls – The Smoke that Thunders
Mount Nelson Table Mountain Backdrop
If it’s old world, colonial glamour you are after, you cannot beat the Mount Nelson hotel in Cape Town – or the ‘Mount Nellie’ as she is affectionately known to Capetonians. One of Cape Town’s oldest hotels, ‘Nellie’ still exudes the style and class of a bygone era whilst maintaining a high level of modern sophistication. Whilst in Cape Town you can take your pick of the many wonderful sites to explore from the Penguins at Boulders, Table Mountain, Robben Island or a drive around the Cape Peninsula and the Cape of Good Hope. Or even partake of an exclusive private wine tour with Greatest Africa’s very own founder and MD, Richard.
Next, it’s off to Pretoria for a night at the luxury Illyria House before boarding your early morning departure on Rovos Rail to the Victoria Falls. Rovos Rail is Southern Africa’s most luxurious rail experience and an incredible journey that you will never forget. Finally you will arrive at the majestic Victoria Falls for 3 splendid nights at the famous Stanley and Livingstone Hotel. Soak up the sight (and sounds) of the Falls, or take a game drive into the bush with one of the hotel’s experienced game rangers. Take a sundowner cruise up the Zambezi or simply relax in the splendor and comfort of the luxury hotel.
