At a glance

Over the course of ten days, let this fantastic, compact tour guide you to the undisputable splendours across the southernmost tip of Africa.

Beginning your journey in the beautiful city of Cape Town, a pinnacle of natural splendour, and home to an exceptional dining scene, you’re already off to an incredible start.

Regarded as the oldest city in South Africa, you can spend your time delving into its history, or take to its most sublime beaches for a cooling swim, after tackling one of the many scenic hiking trails. With the striking Table Mountain serving as a wonderful backdrop, you can set off on guided tours, ticking off the attractions and venture to Cape Point via the utterly picturesque Chapman’s Peak.

The Winelands are your next stop, where you can dabble in the local labels produced by the varied array of wineries while taking in the Cape Dutch architecture.

You’ll then head further inland to the Kruger National Park, and experience three blissful days of safari. Renowned as one of the largest wildlife reserves in the world, this park is sure to live up to your expectations, and hopefully you’ll be able to spot all of the Big Five.

The following destination of this compact tour is Livingstone, famed for the thundering Victoria Falls. You’ll be able to explore both sides of the falls and conclude your adventure with an idyllic sunset cruise down the Zambezi River.

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town is a city that can really take your breath away. The horizon dominated by the iconic table-top mountain rising up in the background, whilst in the foreground are the crisp waters of the cape, the laid-back bustle of the city’s waterfront skirted by sandy beaches and picturesque suburbs.

This is the oldest city in South Africa, steeped in history and full of beautiful buildings from its colonial past. The tall mountains and green hills that surround the city have an immensely calming effect helping this to be one of the most relaxing big city visits that you are likely to have. Outside of the city itself there are many attractions than can be visited in a day trip, from the Cape of Good Hope to the rolling hills of the wine lands.

Enjoy the beautiful countryside of the Winelands. This is one of the most historic areas of South Africa as it’s where many of the original Dutch settlers first made their homes. Pretty towns and villages adorn the countryside, their white washed Dutch colonial buildings contrasting against the lush greens of vineyards, fields and forests.

There are a huge variety of different vineyards to visit here, ranging from small boutique wineries where you may be shown round by the owners themselves to larger, more modern estates. Aside from grapes, all manner of fresh produce is made here, much of which you will find adorning the plates of the excellent restaurants in the area. You'll have our top recommendations for activities, vineyards and restaurants so that you can make the most of your time here.

The picturesque Winelands region is blanketed with beautiful wine farms, quaint historical towns and rolling vineyards. You’ll spend the day exploring and getting a taste for the region. Here you’ll find some of South Africa’s top restaurants, inviting boutiques and award-winning wine producers.

The tour usually includes time in Stellenbosch which is the second oldest town in South Africa with its canal-lined avenues and Cape Dutch Architecture; Franschhoek which was founded by the French Huguenots over 350 years ago and boasts pretty cafes and quaint shops; and Paarl with its many cultural and historical places of interest. Depending on your wine tastes and interests though, your guide will structure your day to best suit you.

Three days on safari in the Kruger Three days on safari in the Kruger

Founded in 1898 by President Paul Kruger, this National Park remains one of the oldest and largest wildlife reserves in the world. However it’s not just the Kruger’s size or age that has really helped distinguish itself as one of Africa’s premier and consummate National Parks, but its ground-breaking conservation philosophy and practice that has led the way for other wildlife sanctuaries not just in Africa. And it’s no wonder when you think of the Kruger’s sixteen different habitats, 517 species of bird, and more varieties of mammals, including the Big Five, than any other reserve. So it’s often said, you won’t get a better safari anywhere else.

Lying in the north-eastern region of South Africa and at a size of about four million hectares, the main Kruger National Park is open to all. However, we use only lodges in Private Concessions and Reserves bordering the park so that you can enjoy an exclusive, real safari experience and have the best possible game viewing. These private reserves make up the Greater Kruger Park (the wildlife is the same throughout) and possess, what is often agreed, as the finest safari lodges and luxury hospitality on the continent.
