Savour the fascinating contrasts between Cape Town’s rugged coastline and the earthy grandeur of the wild African bush. This 7-day itinerary offers you the best of both worlds: seaside city and Big Five wilderness. Spend your days uncovering the many highlights of the Cape, before escaping on a wildlife safari in the renowned Sabi Sand Reserve.
Cape Town is a place of captivating juxtapositions, where modern city melds with natural gems and diverse cultures. You'll be spoilt for choice when deciding what to do with your days in this, one of the world's best loved cities.
In the shadow of Table Mountain lies the V&A Waterfront with its restaurants, shops and harbour cruises. Walk through the leafy Company Gardens in the heart of the city and visit art galleries, historic highlights and museums. Experience the Bo-Kaap district with its colourful houses and learn to cook a delicious Cape Malay lunch,
Step from cosmopolitan flair into nature as you drive (or get driven) along the spectacular coastline, down to Cape Point and the penguins at Boulder's Beach.
And no visit to Cape Town would be complete without an outing to the star of the city, Table Mountain. For the fitness enthusiasts there are many walking trails up the mountain, for the rest there is the comfort of the revolving cable car. The restaurant at the top is a great place to enjoy a relaxing lunch, afternoon tea or sundowners.
Game drives and walking safaris with the experienced rangers at Notten’s Bush Camp bring you as close as you can get to true nature, the untamed African way.
Set off on morning and afternoon drives in open-top land rovers, stopping for coffee or sundowners out in the African bush. You also have the option of daily walking safaris, which give a deeper understanding of this incredible environment.
Sabi Sands Reserve, part of Greater Kruger, is home to healthy numbers of all of Africa's Big 5 - and is world-famous for its superb leopard sightings. Back at the lodge the lounge and viewing deck overlook a waterhole that is a favourite hangout for elephant, hippo and a host of other animals.
In between game viewing activities, unwind in the comfort of the lodge. Family-run Notten's is one of the original private safari lodges in South Africa. Cool down with a dip in the swimming pool, soak up the stunning views from your private suite or relax with a massage out on the deck.
