South Africa - Cape Town and Eastern Cape Multi Centre

Where city life and wildlife combine

One of the most popular South Africa itineraries twins a visit to the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town with the game reserves in the Eastern Cape province.

Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa and has been voted the best city in the world countless times.  With plentiful sights and experiences, including the iconic Table Mountain, historic Robben Island, nearby Cape Winelands, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and trendy district of Camps Bay, it is the perfect place to start or finish any South African adventure.

After living it up amid the glamour and glitz of Cape Town you'll enjoy the contrast of getting back to nature. The Eastern Cape is 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 viewing opportunities, as well as a host of other flora and fauna. Being malaria-free, the Eastern Cape Reserves are ideal for couples and families alike and many of the lodges have programmes dedicated to children where they will be fully immersed in the world of wildlife conservation. 

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Take a guided tour of Robben Island
  • Hike up Table Mountain
  • World-class shopping and dining experiences at the V&A Waterfront

Cape Town

Voted the best city in the world many times, Cape Town is a great spot for winter sun and is sure to take your breath away.

Its picture-perfect location is stylish, colourful and exciting with brightly painted houses, world-class restaurants and eclectic African culture. Lovingly known as the Mother City, Cape Town is famous for its epic views and jaw-dropping landscapes; take a cable car to the top of Table Mountain for the best seat in the house and vistas to remember forever.

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.
