South Africa - Cape Town, Cape Winelands and Eastern Cape Multi Centre

Food, wine and wildlife

Your trip begins in Cape Town – a destination which routinely wins the award for best city in the world. Dominated by the imposing crag of Table Mountain, Cape Town offers you a full spectrum of experiences from a dazzling cultural scene and stunning landscapes to striking architecture and exceptional cuisine: you'll be spoilt for choice for things to see and do here. 

Next up is the Cape Winelands – gourmet capital of South Africa – featuring quaint farmsteads and towns, such as Franschhoek, and offering Cape Dutch architecture, boutique hotels and world-class wine tasting in centuries-old vineyards. Hike along peaceful nature trails in the achingly beautiful Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve; or take a tram tour and visit the Huguenot Memorial Museum, dedicated to the French settlers who arrived in the Cape in the seventeenth century.

Following your stay in the Winelands, you'll head to the Eastern Cape – only a short flight away or, if time permits, why not hire a car and drive the picturesque Garden Route and feast your eyes on surf-lashed beaches and mountain pass vistas. The game reserves are easy to reach and offer Big Five safaris, as well as a host of other flora and fauna. Being malaria-free, the Eastern Cape Reserves are ideal for families and many of the lodges have programmes dedicated to children where they will be fully immersed in the world of conservation.  

With so much to offer, you'll make memories to last a lifetime as you explore South Africa's contrasting highlights – call one of our Destination Specialists to create a tailor made itinerary.

Welcome to the gourmet capital of South Africa, featuring bucolic towns such as Franschhoek offering Cape Dutch architecture, boutique hotels and world-class wine tasting in centuries-old vineyards. Hike along nature trails in the achingly beautiful Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, take a hop-on hop-off tram tour and visit the Huguenot Memorial Museum dedicated to the French settlers who arrived in the Cape in the seventeenth century.

Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape is like a three-layered cake of unspoiled coastline, lush hills and dramatic mountains, all backed by the semi-desert of the Karoo.

This is the home of some of South Africa's best game reserves. It is the birthplace of Nelson Mandela and the heart of the country's turbulent history. We love how the Eastern Cape's wild, rugged beauty remains untouched by time, but we also love the rich array of experiences to be had, from culture to history to nature. The Eastern Cape is simply magical.

Highlights

  • Big Five safari
  • Malaria free game reserves
  • Miles of unspoiled, golden sand beaches
  • Nelson Mandela museum
