A journey designed especially for honeymooners and romantic couples, this highlight-packed 14-day tour of South Africa begins with a self-drive adventure in one of the world's favourite cities: Cape Town. Hike or ride the cable car up iconic Table Mountain for the best views in town and head down the Cape Peninsula for penguin colonies, wide beaches and bustling fishing villages.
The dramatic scenery continues as you travel inland towards the rolling hills and verdant valleys of the Cape Winelands to savour some of the country’s best vintages. Enjoy luxurious farm living and superb cuisine at an authentic Cape Dutch farmhouse at the foot of the imposing Simonsberg Mountains.
Meander back to the coast to the popular town of Hermanus where migrating southern right whales gather from about July to September. Hermanus offers some of the easiest and most reliable land-based whale watching in the world: if your luck is in, you can simply stroll along the rugged coastline to see these graceful giants breach clear out of the icy blue waters. Your luxurious cliff-top terrace provides spectacular views over the bay by day and the perfect spot from which to admire dazzling sunsets each evening.
An air transfer whisks you from Cape Town to Madikwe Private Game Reserve for superb, malaria-free Big 5 game viewing on the edge of the magnificent Kalahari. Your Madikwe home is the regal Jamala Madikwe Royal Safari Lodge, a fitting setting for the last leg of your safari.
