Memorable & personalized luxury holidays.
A trip to South Africa means picking from multiple, equally-tempting choices. The real art here is to plan a journey into the soul of SA, home to posh waterfronts, legendary mines and perky penguins.
Goukamma Natural Reserve – Catch a 14 km coastline, marine protected area, extensive dune fields and a freshwater lake (Lake Groenvlei) in its beautiful entirety. Spot the gentle Grysbok, distinctive Vervet Monkeys and over 220 species of birds including the rare African Black Oystercatcher.
Cango Caves – These are 20-million-year-old caves cut into limestone rock, with the highlight being a crawl through the bowels of the earth at the Devil’s postbox, a 23 cm high tunnel.
Tsitsikamma National Park – Evergreen forests, rolling fynbos and deep river gorges sculpt one of the most distinct terrains in SA. Tsitsikamma (place of much water) is a haven for marine life, Knysna Loeries, the shy Cape Clawless Otters and Blue Duikers. The sight of Indian Ocean breakers head banging the cliffs is not to be missed.
Adventure Holidays, Drakensberg Mountians, KwaZulu - Natal – One of South Africa`s prime eco-tourist spots, you can pick up the pace among rolling hills, open spaces, gigantic peaks and dramatic rock outcrops. The Drakensberg area is a haven for adventure lovers, offering unspoilt and lovely environs for fishing, hiking, horse riding, climbing, scooter tours, helicopter rides and wildlife spotting. The best part, there are equally exciting options for the little ones!
Adventure Holidays, Klein Karoo, Western SA – The semi arid Karoo forms an interesting contrast with the lush coastline and is a gem of a
place for outdoor activities of all sorts. Try the special 4x4 trails starting with the ‘Chicken
Run’ and work your way up to the arduous Witkruisarend route. For extreme thrill buffs, there
are specially marked routes for wagon wheels and quad & mountain bikes. To round things off,
grab a zip line before heading back.
Ukhalamba Drakensberg Park, KwaZulu - Natal – A World Heritage site containing rare San Bushman art, the park is nestled in a stunningly beautiful locale. There are over 20,000 rock paintings recorded across 500 "shelters". Considered by experts to be a sophisticated art form, the paintings feature animals like the revered Eland Antelope, human figures and Therianthropes (metamorphosis from human to animal).
Tulbagh – Savour SA’s Dutch Heritage at Tulbagh, where lovingly restored Dutch style manors and B&Bs offer a truly immersive stay en route to the Cape Winelands.
Knysna Oyster Festival, Knysna – Come July and Knysna draws visitors by the dozens not just for oysters, but for sports, entertainment, wine & whisky tastings, and everything else the region can serve up.
At the heart of Cape Whale Coast, Hermanus is the best land based whale watching destination.
Stellenbosch, Cape Town
South Africa’s second oldest town Stellenbosch, is the hub of glorious wine trails.
