Jewels of Africa (IQB)

11 Day Package from Nairobi to Cape Town

Africa is home to some of the world’s most marvelous sites, most endangered species, and most incredible people. And it’s time for YOU to experience it all! We coordinate the details for you—from hotels and transportation, to sightseeing and most meals, Monograms makes it easy to help you hit Africa’s biggest highlights.

Your African adventure starts when you arrive in Nairobi. We can pick you up at the airport and help you manage the hassle of getting to your hotel. The next day, after an included breakfast, visit the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to learn about elephant conservation and meet orphaned elephant calves. Then, journey to Maasai Mara National Reserve – the most famous game area in Kenya for a three night stay. This reserve has a strong permanent population of wildlife, so stay on the lookout for the “Big 5” – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. A total of five exciting game drives are included here!

Next, fly south Zimbabwe. A trip to Africa wouldn’t be complete without experiencing Victoria Falls. We've arranged for you to have a private, guided walk of the mighty falls and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, where you'll have an opportunity to take photographs of the wildlife and sip on a drink as you watch a spectacular African sunset—the perfect ending to a day of discovery!

Finally, fly into beautiful Cape Town where your Local Host® will take you on a private tour of the city’s highlights. Ascend to the top of Table Mountain, visit the penguins at Boulders Beach, and stop at the Cape of Good Hope – the southernmost point on the African continent. The following day is free to explore on your own or you can join an optional excursion. Consider a visit to the beautiful Cape winelands for a magical day winery visits and tastings. From June to December you can also choose to go whale-watching in Hermanus, the self-proclaimed whale-watching capital of the world.

With Monograms, your dream vacation to Africa doesn’t feel so far out of reach. With all of the details arranged for you, all you have to do is pack your bags and prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Cape Town

Cape Town

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens

Set against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town, Kirstenbosch is rated as one of the most magnificent botanical gardens in the world. It is actually part of a larger nature reserve that is dedicated to preserving the diverse flora of this region and other parts of South Africa. It is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. This is a must visit while in Cape Town if you love plants or learning about unique habitats.

Bo-Kaap

Also known as the "Cape Malay Quarter" this lively Cape Town neighborhood is famous for its colorful houses, ranging from lime-green and pink to orange. Founded by former slaves in the 1750s, it has a fascinating history and is a true melting pot of cultures. Walk through the neighborhood and absorb the atmosphere and consider stopping for a traditional Malay meal at a local restaurant or visit the Bo-Kaap Museum to learn more about the history of the neighborhood and the people that call it home.

District Six Museum

This moving and informative museum documents the history of this vibrant area that was bulldozed during the Apartheid years. Through the use of photographs and testimonials the moving story of the 60,000 people who were forcibly displaced comes to life. For history buffs this is the one museum in Cape Town that is not to be missed.

Cape Town Diamond Museum

Did someone say diamonds? South Africa has storied history of diamond mining that is chronicled at this museum. Diamonds were discovered in South Africa in 1867 and within ten years 95% of the worldwide supply was coming from this rugged country at the southern tip of Africa. From the birth of a stone to the final polishing to colorful characters the story of diamonds in South Africa is a fascinating one. Add to that the convenient location in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and it is easy to add this to your visit.
