The ground you’ll cover

Our epic new South Africa to Antarctica Expedition transports you from the tip of Africa to the snowy wonderland of Antarctica - an experience which has lured travelers such as astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Bear Grylls and Prince Harry. Following four days in the city of Cape Town we will transfer you 2,400 miles across the Southern Ocean by private jet. Landing on a blue-ice runway you will be welcomed by the white deserts of Antarctica and hosted in luxury igloo pods. Your days are spent exploring ice caves, crossing frozen lakes, summiting mountains, rock climbing and encountering a 6000 strong Emperor Penguin colony. This is an expedition for the daring, the thrill-seeker and avid explorer. Bid goodbye the snowy wonderland as you return to Cape Town for the second leg of your LuxVenture® Expedition - a visit to South Africa’s most sought after safari destination, the Kruger National Park. Retreat to the African bush for 4 days at one of the park’s most prestigious private lodges, Singita Lebombo, and witness the big five on game drives and walking safari expeditions.

A day-by-day break down of this trip.

Day one

Arrive Cape Town

Transfer to the Silo Hotel

You are welcomed to the city of Cape Town by a glimpse of the famous Table Mountain from your window seat of your international flight. Touch down in Cape Town International Airport where you will be met by a Ker & Downey Africa representative ready to escort you to your hotel. Your home base for the upcoming three nights, The Silo Hotel, is not only an architectural masterpiece but has also hit the Condé Nast Traveler 2018 Hot List. Towering over the V&A Waterfront and the city’s iconic Table Mountain, The Silo Hotel occupies six floors above Zeitz MOCAA - Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art. The hotel itself is a celebration of art, style, architecture and design - boasting multi-faceted windows which bulge outward by 1 metre and transforms the building into a glowing beacon at night.
