Southern Africa Highlights
Touring Southern Africa with APT was amazing. Premium hotels & 5 star Camp Lodges throughout. Starting in Cape Town we toured the Southern Cape and surrounding wineries before heading up to experience luxury lodges of Madikwe and Kruger National Park. Finishing the tour in Livingstone, Zambia, to experience Victoria Falls was a perfect ending.
Oman is such an un-spoilt tourist destination and its coastline ranks amongst the most beautiful in the world, with scenery ranging from magnificent beaches leading to fertile plains and rugged mountains that run right into a sea of perfect blue. It is a land of mountain springs, shifting sand dunes, and spectacular wadis with majestic castles & forts. On our 8 day journey, we only got experience Muscat, Niwza and the desert which was amazing.
India’s “Golden Triangle”
India is a land of contrasts and for a first time traveler to India, I highly recommend doing the magical “Golden Triangle” which includes Delhi, Agra & Jaipur. These cities provide a classic and unforgettable introduction to the country and its charms. Old Delhi is filled with monuments, museum and bustling markets where as New Delhi offers world class hotels and great modern restaurants & bars. We travelled onto Agra to see the famous Taj Mahal which is simply amazing and a must see.
Jaipur was our last stop which has so much to offer including stunning forts & palaces, museums & vibrant bazaars. This tour can be done as a group tour but I do suggest paying that little bit more fora private tour, giving you flexibility & more time to explore.
