Cape Town

With five glorious nights in Cape Town, you can really get under the skin of this beautiful city. Catch the cable car to the flat summit of Table Mountain for unparalleled vistas of the metropolis, search for penguins on Boulders Beach, discover the water’s diversity of shark species, eat delicious barbecue and walk the institutions of Museum Mile. You’ll get to experience the city’s highlights with three great tours too: learn about the history of Nelsen Mandela and his incarceration at Robben Island; sample world-renowned grapes as you explore the Winelands; and spend a day in awe of the arresting bays, cliffs, hills and valleys at Cape Point.

Rovos Rail

Travel the 994 miles from Cape Town to Pretoria onboard the Rovos Rail, otherwise known as the ‘Pride of Africa’. Lauded for being the most luxurious train in the world, this journey takes you through the historic Victorian village of Matjiesfontein and the fertile valleys of Great Karoo and Klein Karoo, before stopping at Kimberley en route. Here you’ll explore the Diamond Mine Museum as well as gazing across the Big Hole – famous for being the largest man-made excavation in the world. And when you’re not soaking up all that postcard-perfect scenery, you can unwind in the refurbished wood-panelled Pullman sleeper suites, complete with en-suite bathrooms and a mini bar, stocked with drinks of your choice.

Included Excursion:
2 nights onboard the Rovos Rail in a Pullman Suite

Day 9

Johannesburg

A short pit stop in Jo’burg will give you the chance to discover a city that is looking towards a bright future. Perhaps take a glimpse into its chequered past at the Apartheid Museum, discover the burgeoning Melville and Maboneng neighbourhoods, and sample some of the best BBQ restaurants in the country. If there’s time, consider a tour of Constitution Hill; the infamous prison is now a complex of museums and exhibitions.

Included in this price:

5* The Michelangelo Hotel

Days 10-12

Kruger National Park

One of the largest game reserves in Africa, home to the Big Five – not to mention a plethora of other animals – Kruger is a great place to head out on a wildlife adventure. And there couldn’t be a more exclusive bush escape to experience it all from; the Hamiltons Tented Camp exudes a 19th century style of luxury, miles away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. From here you’ll embark on morning and evening game drives in search of lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos.

Included Excursion:
6 Game drives
