Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Cape Town.
Spend a few days exploring glorious Cape Town, Africa’s most beautiful city. Revel in the stunning mountain scenery, explore the bustling V&A Waterfront, with its cafés and bars, or search for souvenirs in the many craft shops. Take the cable car up Table Mountain and participate in a mouth-watering cooking safari in Bo-Kaap, the Malay Quarter and one of the city’s most diverse neighbourhoods. Learn how to mix masalas and fold samosas, then sit down to a hearty meal of your culinary creations followed by sticky koeksisters (twisted fried bread dipped in sugar), a traditional South African snack.
Head to elegant Stellenbosch, filled with whitewashed architecture and tidy lawns, and famous for its surrounding wineries. Get your taste buds ready for a day of sampling delicious local delicacies such as biltong and droëwors, followed by something heartier like bobotie – not forgetting the desserts, such as milk tart and Amarula mousse, all washed down with a crisp glass of award-winning wine in the vineyards. Finally, stop off at the oldest sweet shop in town, Oom Samie se Winkel.
Step back in time as you hop on board the iconic Blue Train, a luxury locomotive that whisks you through some of South Africa’s most breathtaking countryside. Like a lavish hotel on wheels, the Blue Train has hosted presidents and kings, and offers top-quality gourmet meals complemented by an extensive wine list. Relax in your opulent suite as you travel through the night to handsome Pretoria. Along the way, stop off for some sherry tasting at Victorian-style Matjiesfontein.
On arrival into Pretoria you’ll be transferred onwards to thriving Johannesburg, a city on the up. Here you’ll experience a tour of the Soweto Township, a ‘city within a city’. Learn about the Soweto uprising, and see the scars left by the events of that day on the local buildings and churches. Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial and the humble former home of Nelson Mandela, now a family museum.
Experience the magic of seeing Africa’s majestic wildlife in the wild as you begin your safari adventure in Sabi Sands. Get up close to nature as you travel in an open 4x4 with a knowledgeable guide who will tell you all about the local flora and fauna. With no fences between Sabi Sands and neighbouring Kruger National Park, there’s plenty of big game out there, if you know where to look. Safaris go out early morning and evening every day, because this is when the animals are at their most active. Look out for elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah and over 300 colourful bird species.
Return to Johannesburg and depart for the UK.
