You begin your holiday in Africa’s most-celebrated city of Cape Town where you stay in a tasteful, self-catering apartment in an urban-chic neighbourhood. With access to the city’s best restaurants, boutique stores, art galleries and sidewalk cafés, you could not be better positioned to explore one of the trendiest areas of this truly dynamic city and the World Design Capital 2014. Two full-day tours shed light on South Africa’s rebirth after apartheid and allow you to discover the natural beauty and historical significance of the Cape Peninsula.
Your next stayover is in Ngala Private Game Reserve on the banks of the crocodile and hippo-filled Timbavati River. Game drives and walking safaris with expert ranger-and-tracker teams bring you into close contact with animals on this Big 5 reserve, where cheetah and wild dog also take up residence.
After a night at Oliver's Lodge in White River, your next stop is Benguerra Island Lodge in Mozambique where all your needs are taken care of by a private butler. The theme here is sea-and-sand relaxation with snorkelling, diving, deep-sea fishing and, of course, no-fuss sunbathing to enjoy.
