Your South Africa travel itinerary:
Day 1: Cape Town
Fly from the UK to Cape Town.
Days 2 - 4: Cape Town
Arrive in the spectacular city of Cape Town, surrounded by blue bays dominated by the iconic Table Mountain. It’s a fabulous city to visit with the youngsters, with the colony of African penguins at Boulders Beach a particular favourite. Children of all ages will be entranced as they watch the birds waddle up and down the beach and play in the surf, and you can snap some great close-up photos. Simonstown’s exceptional toy museum is also worth a visit, as is getting up close to the animals at Butterfly World and the delightful Cheetah Outreach program. Be sure to marvel at the marine life in the world-class Two Oceans Aquarium, one of the best aquariums in the whole world. And don’t forget chocolate tasting – fun for all the family.
Days 5 - 6: Stellenbosch
Drive to the handsome town of Stellenbosch in the Winelands region. Stellenbosch is known for its countless wineries, museums, galleries and restaurants and its winding streets are home to some fine examples of Cape Dutch architecture. Spend an afternoon sampling fine wines and gourmet cheeses among the beautiful mountain vineyards. For children, your hotel, The Spier, offers grape juice and wine gum tasting as well as bird displays at the Eagle Encounters.
Days 7 - 8: Sanbona Wildlife Reserve
Drive on to Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, a family friendly safari location filled with fun experiences for the little ones. Children can join the Interpretive Trail, a short walk that teaches them about the reserve’s animals and how to spot their tracks, and there are arts and crafts and puzzles on offer too. While out on safari, look for the rare white lion as well as some of the smaller flora and fauna such as the endemic flightless dung beetle.
Days 9 - 10:
Drive to Grootbos Nature Reserve, a nature lover’s paradise carpeted in forests overlooking the whale and dolphin watching haven of Walker Bay. The 1,750 hectare reserve is home to over 750 species of plants, and seals, penguins and great white sharks swim in the cool waters. The list of activities on offer here is endless – choose from horseriding, guided walks, coastal drives, cave visits and birdwatching, all of which are included in your Journey. Additionally, you can splash out on a boat trip or a scenic flight, or face your fears while shark cave diving. Cape Agulhas, the windswept southernmost tip of Africa, is a popular day trip.
Days 11 - 12:
Return to Cape Town and depart for the UK.
