Cape Town

Day 1 - 3

There’s nowhere quite like Cape Town with its melting pot of cultures, cuisine and landscapes. Our Cape Town City tour includes a walk through the Company’s Garden, a visit to the Castle of Good Hope, and a meander through the famous colourful Malay Quarter - Bo-Kaap.

Crowning the tour off, visitors can enjoy a thrilling trip up the iconic Table Mountain to soak up spectacular views of Robben Island, the city and the magnificent coastline - weather permitting.

Sandwiched between the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the breathtaking Cape Peninsula drive passes through some popular attractions such as Camps Bay, Chapmans peak, and Noordhoek towards the legendary Cape of Good Hope.

Some peninsula highlights include: hopping on a cruise to Seal Island and visiting Boulders beach to witness free-roaming penguins.

Finally, we will head to the beautiful Winelands region of the Western Cape with a visit to the historical towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, where you’ll learn about the history of the area and winemaking with a visit to the Mont Rochelle wine estate, part of the famous Virgin Collection owned by Richard Branson since 2014.

Garden Route

Day 5 - 8

Stretching several hundred kilometres along the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces of South Africa, the Garden Route is one of the country's most popular routes.

Starting from Mossel Bay in the West and extending to the Storms River in the Tsitsikamma National Park, the Garden Route features extraordinary landscapes renowned for their beauty.

Oudtshoorn is the ostrich capital of the world and home to the magnificent Cango Caves, known as the underground wonder of the Klein Karoo. Another gem of Oudtshoorn: the Meerkat experience, where you will observe the natural behaviour of these most adorable little mammals.

A romantic sundowner awaits you in Knysna, with champagne and fresh oysters in hand whilst cruising on the lagoon with the world-famous Knysna heads as a magical backdrop.

Johannesburg

Day 9

Dubbed the ‘City of Gold’, Johannesburg boasts a rich history which was built on the discovery of gold in the area.

The township of Soweto is famous for being the only suburb in the world which was home to 2 Nobel Peace prize winners: Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu, who lived in Soweto, Vilakazi street.

A top highlight includes visiting the Lesedi Cultural Village showcasing several of South Africa’s tribes, viewing the colourful dwellings and being mesmerized by traditional dancing, ending the evening with a Pan-African food feast.

Only a short drive from Johannesburg, you can enjoy a safari drive through a wilderness reserve where you can view numerous herbivore species and predator enclosures housing lions and cheetahs. Animal interactions are available, which include petting lion cubs and feeding giraffes!
