(11 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Winelands, Cape Town, Safaris (Thornybush Reserve and Sabi Sand Reserve)
Experience the best of South Africa’s stunning landscapes, cultural and culinary highlights, and renowned safari lodges, including Singita and Royal Malewane, in this ultimate private luxury tour.
Arrive in Cape Town, where you will be met by your private guide for the transfer to the Winelands. Spend two nights at a luxurious retreat in Franschhoek with private touring in the region, including personalized wine tastings at South Africa’s premier vineyards and a visit to the charming town of Stellenbosch. There will be ample time to explore the town, browse high-end artisan boutiques and indulge in some of the country’s most acclaimed gourmet restaurants.
Return to beautiful Cape Town for three nights at one of our favorite luxury properties. Enjoy comprehensive private touring with one of Cape Town’s most knowledgeable guides. Learn about the city’s fascinating history and architecture; take a cable car to the top of the iconic Table Mountain; experience local markets, boutiques, museums, and noted African art galleries; and enjoy Cape Town’s incredible food and wine scene, including reservations at top restaurants. Depending on your interests, enjoy other highlights, such as Robben Island, Bo Kaap (the Cape Malay Quarter), and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. One day, take a private excursion along the scenic coastal road to the Cape Peninsula and visit the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach and quaint seaside towns. Private yacht cruises, scenic helicopter flights, adventure activities, and day trips to Hermanus can also be arranged, upon request.
Next, experience two of South Africa’s most luxurious safari lodges. First, fly to Royal Malawane, an exclusive lodge in the private Thornybush Game Reserve. In addition to the Big Five, this reserve offers the opportunity to spot the elusive Black Rhino on your daily game drives. Additional activities can also be arranged such as hot air ballooning, horseback riding, or a visit to a wildlife rehabilitation center. Or simply choose to relax by your private plunge pool or book treatments and the lodge’s spa—one of the best in South Africa.
Continue to Singita in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, a private reserve that borders Kruger National Park. This area is renowned for its diverse wildlife—including the Big Five—and is particularly known for leopard sightings. Stay at an ultra-luxurious safari lodge and enjoy morning and afternoon game drives and guided bush walks during your stay. If desired, a visit to a local community can be arranged. There will also be time to indulge in spa treatments and enjoy elaborate gourmet meals paired with South Africa’s best wines. Return to Johannesburg, where you will be assisted to your international flight.
