The classic self-drive tour – combining the famed wine region, beaches & vibrancy of the Cape with the varied attractions of the Garden Route and a Big Five safari in the Eastern Cape.
Depart London Heathrow on your scheduled overnight flight to Cape Town.
A stunning boutique hotel on the slopes of Table Mountain which has many imitators but few genuine rivals. Each of the exquisite and individually-styled bedrooms has its own terrace or balcony, and the hotel’s artworks sit perfectly alongside the tended garden, personalised service and swimming pool.
An elegant beach house-style stay beckons at The Long Beach, which sits in a colourful fishing village at the end of one of the Cape’s most photogenic beaches, and which entices guests with a swimming pool, spa treatments and just six spacious suites, each of which has its own patio or balcony.
Close to the wine producing triumvirate of Stellenbosch, Paarl & Franschhoek, six spacious rooms and suites are found in this magnificent restored Cape Dutch manor house, which is set on a wine estate and additionally offers an outdoor swimming pool, sun terrace, spa room and gourmet cuisine.
Ideally located between the towns of Knysna & Plettenberg Bay, close to many of the Garden Route’s numerous attractions, this country house hotel offers a stylish retreat with landscaped gardens, luxury accommodation, a swimming pool and delectable dining options.
This malaria-free safari lodge, which sits on a gentle hill above a river plain, offers a selection of luxurious room types, and a variety of exciting activities, ranging from morning and afternoon game drives to bush walks & river cruises, all in search of the Big Five which call this reserve home.
You will drive to Port Elizabeth Airport where you will drop off your hire car and fly first to Johannesburg, and then on to London Heathrow.
