Luxury South Africa Safari
Whether it’s the Euro-chic vibe of Cape Town; the Garden Route, famed for its pretty towns, superb seafood and amazing whale-watching; or the expanses of untouched beach, bush and forest in the country’s ‘wild province’, the Eastern Cape, we have created the perfect itinerary that will let you fall in love with South Africa.
You’ll fly Premium Economy direct to Cape Town with British Airways. You’ll be able to relax with more legroom and a greater recline along with delicious meals and a full bar service to help you unwind.
Upon landing into Cape Town you will then transfer to Belmond Mount Nelson for 3 nights with breakfast included.
Cape Town is rated one of the world’s most beautiful and exhilarating cities. Sandwiched between iconic Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town has so much to do that one visit is just never enough. Be sure to visit the revitalised Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Camps Bay and Clifton’s fabulous beaches and bars, the lively centre around Long and Kloof Streets (easily explored on foot) and of course a visit to Robben Island, five miles offshore where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years.
After seeing the sights of Cape Town, you will be flying to George. Here you will collect your hire car and experience the natural delights of the beautiful Garden Route – a stretch of coastline of around 186 miles and one of the most scenic areas of the country.
For the next 3 nights you will be staying at the Phantom Forest Eco Reserve on full board basis.
Nestled in the Afromontane Forest and just over four miles from Knysna, your endless views are shared only with Fish Eagles. In this area you can sample everything from sunset sailing and mountain biking, to the nature, adventure and adrenaline-based activities at Tsitsikamma Forest; or visit the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo – the Cango Caves.
Take a scenic drive to Port Elizabeth to drop off your hire car and take your transfer to. You will be staying here for the next 3 nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Malaria-free, this is 54,000 acres of pristine, private wilderness and a world-class Big Five safari destination. Kwandwe also flanks both the north and south banks of the Great Fish River, which meanders through 19 miles of this game-rich reserve. In addition to the Big Five, you’ll get up close and personal to other predators and general game (cheetah, kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, giraffe, black wildebeest and gemsbok). It’s paradise for birdwatchers too: the Fish Eagle and endangered Blue Crane just some of the birdlife found here.
From the Kwande Private Game Reserve, transfer back to Port Elizabeth for your domestic flight to Cape Town. You can either choose to stay a couple of extra nights in the city, or board your Premium Economy British Airways flight back to London Heathrow.
