Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Touch down in Cape Town

On arrival in South Africa's Mother City, you'll be met and transferred to the famous Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel - the 'grand old lady' of hotels in Cape Town - to check in and settle down into your plush surroundings. Plan the next couple of days ahead or get straight into it and head for the nearby museums or close-by Long Street.

Finish off with a leisurely stroll through the hotel gardens or enjoy a dip in the pool before sundowner drinks and dinner.

Days 2-4

Relax and revitalise in the Mother City

Apart from being central to nearly all of the city's main attractions, the Mount Nelson is also home to the Librisa Spa where you can enjoy unique treatments performed by professional therapists. Try a Revitalising Seaweed Wrap or Deep Tissue Massage, among others, to replenish body and mind, and when you're ready to venture out, choose from any number of Cape Town activities.

Take a trip via the cable car or a hiking route to the top of Table Mountain, visit the excellent beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, or do some shopping at the V&A Waterfont. Further afield, explore the Cape Winelands and the Cape Peninsula on full or half-day tours.

Day 5

Fly to Johannesburg

Today you will be transferred from the Mount Nelson hotel to Cape Town Airport, where you will catch a flight to O.R. Tambo Airport in Johannesburg. You will be met by a representative who will transfer you to the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. 

Depending on your time of arrival; settle in and relax beside the swimming pool or on the terrace. Enjoy a rejuventating spa treatment  or head into Sandton to do some shopping. Chat to the helpful staff who can assist you with a restaurant recommendation or enjoy exceptional fine dining cuisine at the hotel's Terrace Restaurant.

Days 6-9

Enjoy pure relaxation on Bazaruto Island

Transfer after breakfast to the airport and board a flight to Vilanculos via Johannesburg. From Vilanculos you'll transfer by charter flight to Bazaruto Island and spend the next week at the Indigo Bay Resort and Spa. Spend your first afternoon here relaxing on the tropical beaches or taking a walk through the resort's gardens.
