route_of_african_sunWith all the beauty and wonder the different parts of Africa hold, it is very hard to experience everything in just one trip. But if you’re going all that way, you want to make the most of it.

Sun International created a package that would allow travelers to get a taste of three very different facets of this magnificent continent, all while staying in five-star luxury hotels.

The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City and The Royal Livingstone Hotel at the Victoria Falls in Zambia are the 5-star Sun International destinations that shape the Route of the African Sun.
  • Experience the culture and vibrance of Cape Town while staying at The Table Bay Hotel, also known as the “Best Address in Cape Town” with it’s harbor-front location and sweeping views of Table Mountain.
  • Next move on to The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City Resort, located just two hours outside of Johannesburg, for an experience of a lifetime. This Kerzner-built complex is made up of four hotels and offers guests every activity they could imagine from the world’s longest, fastest zipslide to elephant encounters and game drives to see The Big 5.
  • Lastly, and certainly not least, experience the magic of Africa at The Royal Livingstone Hotel located on the Zambezi River just minutes from the mighty Victoria Falls. Mix and mingle with the wild zebra and giraffe that roam the hotel grounds while dining outside under the monkey tree.

Starting at $4,599 per person, the 11-day Route of the African Sun package offered through South African Airways Vacations includes flights from New York or D.C. direct to Johannesburg (in addition to South African domestic flights), sightseeing tours, luxury accommodations, some meals and more. Available at this rate for travel from August 11 – September 30, 2013.
