overview

Open your heart to South Africa, a family-friendly destination that truly has ‘something for everyone’ and is ideal for multi-generational groups who want fun, action and excitement.

Start in Cape Town, the gateway to South Africa and its oldest city that throbs with the life of sunny beaches, glorious mountains, beautiful Winelands and interesting museums, galleries and shops.

Then it is off to Sun City, the biggest and most action-packed resort on the continent. From championship golf courses and high-octane water parks to never-ending child-friendly activities, Sun City is a popular, year-round, malaria-free venue.

After getting your fill of thrills, wind down on a once-in-a-lifetime Big 5 safari near the Kruger National Park and spend your days recalibrating to the ancient rhythms of bush sunrises and coral-red sunsets.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to the Mother City

Arrive at Cape Town International Airport and transfer to the stylish Four Rosmead Guesthouse in the city’s historic Oranjezicht neighbourhood. A contemporary-classic home-from-home set in an enchanting landscaped garden and overlooked by Table Mountain, Four Rosmead delivers on its promise by combining serenity with convenient proximity to trendy Kloof Street, the bustling V&A Waterfront and the jaw-dropping beauty of the beaches at Clifton and Camps Bay.

Settle into your spacious en suite guestroom and relax on a sun lounger next to the swimming pool before treating yourself to a reviving massage at the in-house Pamper Spa so that you are ready to take on all the wining, dining and sightseeing options the Mother City has to offer.

Days 2-4

Explore the Peninsula from Table Mountain to Cape Point

Four Rosmead will happily organise any tours or excursions that pique your interest. Take an exhilarating ride to the top of Table Mountain in a revolving cable car – the views are staggering – and gaze out over the length of the Cape Peninsula, which is an excellent way to orient yourself. Or opt for a tour along the Atlantic Seaboard to Hout Bay and on to Cape Point by way of Chapman’s Peak, one of the world’s most beautiful marine drives.

Cape Town is a walking city and much of it has been sensitively restored to reflect its characterful history. Artists and traders throng its craft markets; flower sellers engage you with cheerful good humour. Explore the Company’s Gardens, and the multi-hued houses and cobblestones of historic Bo-Kaap, before cruising into the sunset at the V&A Waterfront harbour. The city’s beaches are easily accessed too; visit the coves and boulders of Clifton and the palm-fringed boulevard of Camps Bay. And be sure to tour the Cape Winelands and sample the finest wines from the region’s oldest cellars.

Days 5-6

Get it all at spectacular Sun City

Have breakfast in the dining room or out on the patio to admire the view one last time before bidding adieu to Four Rosmead and transferring to Cape Town International Airport for your scheduled flight to Johannesburg, followed by a private shuttle to Cascades Hotel, set at the heart of Sun City.

Take a stroll through the Cascades’ tropical gardens past lakes and waterfalls to the expansive pool deck, find a sun lounger, and relax. The Cascades is the grand old lady of Sun City and has an elegance about it that is quietly compelling, a timeless air of understated luxury that offers a respite to the hustle and bustle of the rest of the resort. With its waterslides, championship golf courses and recreational lakes, Sun City delivers on the maximum possible promise for honeymooners, families and children alike. Swim and surf at the Valley of the Waves and then tee off at one of its two championship golf courses before trying your hand at the casino or taking in one of its spectacular shows.

Days 7-9

Experience unrivalled Big 5 game drives

Transfer back to Johannesburg for a scheduled local flight to Hoedspruit Airport and an onwards transfer to Thornybush Main Lodge. This exclusive camp overlooks the seasonal Monwana River in Thornybush Private Game Reserve, which is adjacent to the Kruger National Park.

You are now in unrivalled Big 5 game territory and this is Africa at its most pristine, the way it has been for thousands of years. On arrival, meet your ranger and the lodge manager who will familiarize you with your programme. Then settle into your suite and wash off the dust of your journey under the outdoor shower on your private viewing deck, and set off on your afternoon game drive.
Return to the lodge for a 3-course dinner under the stars, and then round off your day with a coffee and an Amarula liqueur around the campfire before retiring to the sounds of the African night.

Day 10

End your holiday in Johannesburg

Say goodbye after a final game drive and transfer to Hoedspruit for a return flight to Johannesburg, your holiday the perfect combination of rest and excitement.
