For 17 blissful days, you will be cocooned in luxury in three of Africa’s most inspiring landscapes: the beauty of Cape Town’s Table Mountain and rolling vineyards; the classic Big 5 country of acacia-dotted golden plains; and the palm-fringed turquoise waters of an untouched tropical island.
Begin your holiday in at Kensington Place in Cape Town, which is one of Africa’s most cosmopolitan cities and which showcases African, Malay and European heritage amid spectacular natural beauty. You then wing your way to a luxurious tented getaway in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with the world-famous Kruger National Park, the animals roaming freely between them (if your luck is in, you may spot the otherworldly white lions of Timbavati, which have snowy coats and mesmerising blue eyes). From Tanda Tula, you transfer to Ngala Tented Camp, which allows you to explore a private slice of the Kruger.
After days of inspiring dawn and dusk game drives, set off for Grand Baie on the northern shore of Mauritius. At Hotel 20° Sud, lounge under the coconut palms when you are not playing golf, sailing or snorkelling in warm, clear waters.
Perfect as a city-bush-beach honeymoon or a family vacation where there is ‘something for everyone’, this hassle-free holiday encompasses some of the highlights that southern Africa has to offer.
