For those who enjoy the finer things in life. Your holiday begins in Cape Town, staying at an award-winning luxury hotel in the V&A Waterfront. Next, visit the gourmet capital Franschhoek for a few unforgettable days on a Cape Winelands estate. After a relaxing week in the Cape, fly up to a private reserve in the Kruger Park where you’ll be treated to up-close game viewing and an exceptional safari experience.
Cape Town is one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations: white sand beaches, world-renowned restaurants and flat-topped Table Mountain. Four days is just enough time to get a feel for the city.
Have sundowner cocktails at palm-lined Camps Bay beach, catch the ferry to Robben Island, and enjoy a slow drive around the Cape Peninsula - stopping at Cape Point’s rugged cliffs and the penguins down at Boulder’s Beach.
Your accommodation, the award-winning Cape Grace, is set on a private quay apart from the bustle of the ever-popular V&A Waterfront. Staying here you're at short stroll from a wide selection of restaurants, shops and colourful markets. As for the rooms, they each have lovely views over the marina or mountain - with the best views to be had from the top-floor spa.
Just over an hour’s drive from Cape Town lies Franschhoek. Set in a valley of vine-covered slopes, this picturesque Cape Winelands town is famous for its gourmet cuisine and - of course - its wine.
Enjoy private wine tastings at various estates in the valley; along with cellar tours, platters and pairings. A unique way to get around is on the hop-on hop-off vintage tram, or you can even go wine tasting on horseback! And set aside a morning to wander the main road with its interesting shops and art galleries, or visit the wonderful vintage car museum.
La Residence lies on a private estate just outside town. Antique furnishings and glittering chandeliers add to the opulent interiors, while French doors open onto private terraces with mountain views. In the evening, sit down to an exquisite meal at "Reuben's" or the “Tasting Room”, two of South Africa's top restaurants (you'll need to book well in advance!)
Return to Cape Town for your flight to Hoedspruit Airport, where you’ll be met and transferred to Royal Malewane. Look forward to a classic safari experience with elegant accommodation, highly skilled guides and outstanding game viewing.
Twice-daily game drives take you out into Thornybush Game Reserve. Keep your camera at the ready, as you have an excellent chance of seeing all of Africa’s Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) along with a host of other creatures. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also opt to set out on foot on a guided walking safari.
Between safari activities, pick one of the comfortable couches on the deck overlooking the lodge waterhole or unwind with a treatment at the beautiful bush spa. Dinners under the stars and flawless service round off the Royal Malweane experience.
