Cape Town, Constantia, Hermanus, Garden Route & Safari / Cities, Winelands and Safari

Cape Town is a brilliant start to any South African journey, a proudly multi-cultural city steeped in history but with a modern edge. Stroll through the flourishing Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, browse the boutiques of Long Street and St George’s Mall or hop on a cable car up Table Mountain for truly captivating views of the Mother City. Make sure you visit Zeitz MOCAA - the newest, and largest, contemporary art museum in South Africa, home to the most significant collection of contemporary art from Africa. Take a tour to Constantia, the Cape's oldest and most beautiful wine valley, before heading south to spot whales at Hermanus (seasonal). From here, drive along the picturesque Garden Route, where each curve in the road reveals one spectacular vista after another. Finish your trip at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve – located in the heart of the unspoilt Eastern Cape. With over 22,000 hectares of pristine wilderness discover both the Big and Little 5 – adrenaline junkies will love the big game walking safari where you can experience tracking rhino, elephant and buffalo on foot; whilst conservation warriors will enjoy the Save the Rhino Drive with Kwandwe’s specialist ranger and tracker team.
