Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently made a trip to the Motherland and it left us all wanting more. The royals spent time meeting with world leaders, attending events and having it documented by photographers along the way for the world to see. 

If you still can’t get over their epic trip, you can now relive it by taking a tour with the basic itinerary of the royal tour. 

Classic Escapes has curated a tour entitled “In The Footsteps of the Royal”, allowing for a 10-day tour of the royal’s recent South African tour. 

The tour will be available throughout 2020 with packages starting at $7,395 per traveler plus airfare.

Class Escapes released an official description of the tour, saying: “Charming, elegant and mysterious, South Africa awaits you on an exciting journey, featuring many of the cultural and philanthropic stops the Duke & Duchess made during their recent royal visit in Africa! Feel the warmth of the African sun while exploring Cape Town’s immense cache of unrivaled beauty and exotic botanical gardens, up the Cape Peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope and the endearing penguins of Boulder Beach. Explore Table Mountain and the verdant winelands, richly complemented by Dutch colonial architecture. Feel the rush of seeing Africa’s Big 5 up-close in Kruger National Park while surrounded in comfort. South Africa’s tumultuous struggle to end apartheid is on display when you visit the Nelson Mandela House and Apartheid Museum. The post extension takes you to Zimbabwe and the glorious roar of Victoria Falls. Explore and rejuvenate the soul in South Africa.”
