Experience the Africa you’ve been dreaming of with this extraordinary 44-day journey from Cape Town to Amman, capturing the untamed beauty and inimitable heritage of the continent. Begin in South Africa, whose savannah grasslands are home to some of the world’s most beloved wildlife. Here, you’ll track the Big Five – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard ­– through the bush with the help of an experienced local guide, before enjoying an unforgettable dining experience beneath the beautiful starlit sky – an event exclusive to Scenic Enrich.

After visiting the majestic Victoria Falls and experiencing the local customs of a Maasai tribe, you’ll travel north, where lush grasslands give way to golden sands steeped in ancient history. Witness the colourful bazaars of Luxor, before boarding a ship for a luxury Nile River cruise, which introduces such sights as the Temple of Horus and the Valley of the Kings – the sweeping valley where rock tombs were excavated for the Pharaohs of Egypt’s New Kingdom between the 16th and 11th centuries BC.

In Cairo, travel to the Pyramids of Giza, where you’ll enjoy a special Scenic Sundowners event – watch as the sun sets over the majestic pyramids whilst enjoying elegant canapés and drinks.
