A Tailormade holiday to South Africa
provides incredible wildlife-spotting, world-renowned wineries and award-winning restaurants situated within iconic landscapes.
The ‘Mother City’, Cape Town
, is dominated by the flat-topped Table Mountain, with Devil’s Peak to the east and Lion’s Head and Signal Hill to the west. Dipping from the mountain’s slopes are Cape Town’s largest mansions, as well as beautiful the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Trendy bars and upmarket shops attract thousands of holidaymakers to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, while the infamous Robben Island prison - where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years - can be seen in the distance. Few other destinations can offer mountain hiking, lazing on a beach and tasting world-class wines all in one places.
Wildlife lovers will delight in everything South Africa has to offer. Cycling and trekking trails can be found in the lofty mountains and rolling plains of the Karoo National Park, or explore rugged coastlines, beautiful beaches and forests in Tsitsikamma in the Garden Route National Park. Head to Knysna
for forest walks and stunning views over the surrounding bays. The Eastern Cape has a collection of privately owned game reserves where you can go in search of wildlife in malaria-free areas. While in the north, Kruger National Park
and surrounding game reserves are home to the Big Five and over 500 species of bird.
A holiday to South Africa offers affordable luxury from quaint, boutique bed and breakfasts to elegantly converted Dutch mansions, and tented safari camps to exclusive lodges. There is something to suit all tastes.
For something special, take the luxurious Blue Train from Cape Town to Pretoria. The journey takes one and a half days, passing the wine region, through the Karoo and across vast flat plains. The train, has been operating since 1923, offers fine dining and butler service, providing a unique train experience.
