Your Example Itinerary
Depart the UK and fly to Cape Town
Arrive in Cape Town and transfer to your hotel. Cape Town is a thing of full-on, in-your-face beauty. With the craggy shadow of Table Mountain looming to one side, and the bustling harbour and beach on the other, balance your days between lazing on the sands and seeking adventure. Perhaps take the cable car to the top of the mountain for the best views of the city or head out to Boulders Beach for a bit of relaxation time with 3,000+ African penguins. It’s the one time you won’t mind competing for space on the silica. Find the time to wander the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens too, and dine at the atmospheric V&A Waterfront.
It may not seem it, but beyond the whitewashed Cape Dutch homesteads of Franschhoek lies a treasure trove of fertile vineyards. Wine lovers will be right at home here, and you’ll have the chance to explore over 30 different estates and their varietals – from delicious Sauvignon Blancs to hearty reds, like Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Shopping is pretty good here too, especially if you want to take home some African art as a souvenir.
5* Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa
Traverse 994 miles of mountain, desert and grassland landscape between Pretoria and Cape Town when your stay onboard the luxurious Blue Train. And it’s not just the scenery that will wow you – you’ll sample delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch, high tea and dinner across the two-day trip. Your De Luxe cabin serves up pure elegance too, offering the perfect place to unwind in seclusion, while still soaking up the vistas through a huge in-suite window.
onboard the Blue Train
Kruger National Park
Renowned as South Africa’s, if not Africa’s flagship national park, at Kruger there is quite simply an astounding array of wildlife waiting to be seen. Be sure to have your camera ready and prepare to meet mighty herds of elephant, buffalo, lion, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, rhino and leopard, amongst other creatures. A truly once in a lifetime experience.
