Considered the gateway drug to the safari affliction, South Africa has it all within its bounds: stunning coastlines, diverse landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and prolific wildlife. In that sense, it is the perfect combination trip for those seeking a bit of everything. You will find its colorful people and welcoming culture make for a memorable adventure nearly year-round. Catering to all types – families, honeymooners, single travelers – it is a versatile destination and each stop will be distinct and unique.
The best combination is a visit to Cape Town, a meander through the Cape Winelands, and to Hermanus, and then a grande finale in the bush of Greater Kruger Park. Time-permitting, tack on an extension to Mozambique or South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast.
After your arrival to Cape Town, you will be transferred to your accommodation The Clarendon in Bantry Bay where you’ll spend 2 nights. Conveniently located for the beach, restaurants and other Cape Town attractions, this 5* hotel is the perfect spot to start exploring everything the ‘Mother City’ has to offer.View The Clarendon, Bantry Bay
