12 Day Itinerary

South Africa and Mauritius

An African and Indian Ocean infusion

With a pleasant year-round climate and plethora of sights and activities on offer, South Africa is an extremely popular destination. Far from being a once-in-a-lifetime destination, many find themselves heading back, time and time again, since there is so much to see, do and experience. From deluxe safari lodges in the Kruger National Park to the fascinating history of the Battlefields region in Kwazulu Natal; and from the oyster capital of Knysna, on the picturesque Garden Route, to the cosmopolitan Mother City of Cape Town, your choices are endless.

After your South African adventure, we highly recommend extending your trip by retreating to Mauritius and one of the many white sand beaches. Mauritius is just a four hour flight away, so your hardest decision will be which coast to head for. If you want to continue your action-packed holiday here, the interior of the tropical island is lush, green and mountainous, making it an ideal spot for quad biking, mountain biking and hiking. If relaxation is your prime concern, then make your way to the eastern or southern coasts for quieter stretches of white sand, turquoise lagoons and coral reefs. 

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Visiting buzzy Cape Town and, in contrast, the serene Cape Winelands
  • Pure relaxation on exquisite beaches
  • Immersing yourself in history and local culture
  • Heading to Mauritius for a mix of relaxation and aquatic activities

South Africa

There's nothing better than a tailor-made trip around South Africa and for those that are happy to self-drive we highly recommend doing that for parts of your itinerary. Cape Town, known as the 'mother city' is without a doubt, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Cape Town offers something for everyone and attracts a complete mixture of people. From discovering and learning about the country's apartheid history and about how the late Nelson Mandela changed his country, to ascending the towering Table Mountain which watches over the city and from the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens where it's perfect to take an afternoon picnic, to the penguins that inhabit Boulders Beach; a minimum of three nights is highly recommended.

Mauritius

Palm fringed beaches, turquoise seas and friendly Mauritian service is just a snippet of what the island offers. Travelling with a family, on your own or with your partner, there is a hotel and location for everyone. With championship golf courses, safari walks, natural beauty of the seven coloured earth and white sand beach and turquoise waters it is natural to not want to leave your deck chair at times.
