ITINERARY

This South Africa safari begins at Cape Town International Airport and ends at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

Days 1 to 4: Cape Town

On arrival at Cape Town International Airport you will be warmly welcomed by a member of our team, who will assist you through passport control and baggage claim, and drive you to your hotel.

In the shadow of Table Mountain and with its enormous houses set in leafy grounds, Constantia is one of Cape Town's most upmarket suburbs. It is here that the Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, retired in 1699 to develop his much-loved country estate - Groot Constantia. A cultural history museum today, the estate is world renowned for both its beautiful buildings and the impressive wines that even Napoleon is said to have favoured above all others.

Relax for four nights in a luxury double room at the Cellars-Hohenort Hotel. Your stay includes breakfast.

Day 5: Franshhoek

After a delicious breakfast enjoy a scenic drive to Franschhoek.

Located in a valley tightly hemmed in by mountains, Franschhoek was established by a small band of French Huguenots who fled to avoid religious persecution in 1688. The settlers soon developed impressive vineyards and homestead, which to this day bear their original French names. With the magnificent Huguenot Memorial, museum and rose garden at its heart, the town has just one main street, lined with antique shops, cafes and restaurants.

Enjoy two nights in an auberge room at Le Quartier Francais. Your stay includes breakfast, as well as a complimentary refreshment tray in the room.

Day 6: Wine Tour

Today you will be whisked away to a selection of exceptional wineries on a private guided tour led by Catherine Dillon, a specialist wine master. The tour takes in the hidden gems of the Wine Route, with wine makers and viticulturalists on hand to provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of wine making.

Days 7 to 9: Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Enjoy your last sights of the Cape as you are driven back to Cape Town International Airport, where you will catch a flight to Johannesburg. On arrival at OR Tambo International Airport, a member of our team will be waiting to help you onto a light aircraft flight to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

Bordering the famous Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve guarantees a never to be forgotten experience of the African bush. With no fences between it and the Kruger, animals are free to wander across vast stretches of land. With one of the richest game populations in the country, the chances of seeing the Big Five are excellent. The Reserve is also home to a host of other animals.

Spend three nights in a spacious stone cottage on the banks of the Mabrak River at Dulini Lodge.

Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance and laundry.

Lodge adventures include twice-daily game drives, including spotlit night drives, and guided bush walks. Specialist Safaris available at an additional cost include private and photographic adventures.

Day 10: Departure

A light aircraft flight will take you back to OR Tambo International Airport, where your South Africa safari with us will end.
