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

Food, wine and wildlife

South Africa really does have it all and undoubtedly this suggestion will allow you to see three of the countries highlights. Start your trip in Cape Town - where there is no better place to unwind. Constantly winning awards year after year for its cosmopolitan lifestyle, world class hotels and fine dining, you will be spoilt for choice for things to see and do here. After your stay in Cape Town move on to the Cape Winelands, 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. Following your stay here head to the Eastern Cape. Only a short flight away, or if time permits, hire a car and drive the Garden Route. The malaria free game reserves are easy to reach and offer Big Five experiences, as well as a host of other flora and fauna. Being malaria free, the Eastern Cape Reserves are not only ideal for couples, but families alike and lots of the lodges have programmes dedicated to children where they will be fully immersed into the world of conservation.

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
