Highlights of South Africa

From cosmopolitan Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard to the vineyard slopes of the Winelands, from the streets of Soweto to safaris in Kruger National Park, and the spectacular scenery of the Panorama Route, this is South Africa at its varied, vivid best

A ten-day tour, from door to door, this journey highlights the diversity of South African landscapes, lifestyles, and culture. Designed to include guided visits to major attractions, free time for independent exploration, and optional tours to iconic landmarks, it can flexibly suit your mood and style. Discovery begins in multi-faceted Cape Town, spread between Table Mountain and the ocean, enjoying the beauty of Nature and adding to it in style; where a cable-car sweeps to superb views from the flat top of the mountain, and boats leave the busy harbour for Robben Island. We tour from here to the sumptuously scenic Cape Point, marking the southwestern tip of the continent, and known (not entirely accurately) as the place ‘where two oceans meet’. A visit to the winelands town of Stellenbosch is teamed with a stay in Franschhoek, its tree-shaded streets awash with galleries and curio shops; and we fly to Johannesburg for landmarks of the apartheid uprising and the home of Nelson Mandela. Our final destination could not be more different; the wildlife, wilderness, and wide-open plains of Kruger National Park, with the Sable River running through it, and Africa’s Big Five among 700 species of resident animal and birds.
