Overview

South Africa is well known for its lively cities, rich wine and, of course, safaris – and you can experience all three at your own pace on this suggested self-drive multi-centre holiday. Whether this is your first holiday to South Africa, or you’re returning to see more of this beautiful country, this simple itinerary can be tailored to suit you. From Table Mountain to picturesque vineyards to sunset game drives in search of the ‘Big Five’, this is sure to be a trip to remember.   

South Africa

Cape Town

Begin your South African adventure in the bustling Cape Town. You can go on a tour of the city, hike Table Mountain, and stroll along the beautiful beaches. Take advantage of the endless amounts of excursions on offer, from whale-watching and shark-diving, to visiting Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years. The old prison is steeped in history, and the tours are guided by the former inmates who recite their experiences. Meanwhile, Boulders Beach is famous for its adorable penguins – a must-do on any visit to Cape Town.

South Africa

Cape Winelands

Only a few hours’ drive from Cape Town you’ll find the scenic Cape Winelands, home to endless vineyards and beautiful scenery.  Small boutique hotels really set the tone here, and you’ll feel like you’re part of the family. A wine-tasting experience is a must, as you can sample some of the finest South African vintages. There’s even a wine tram from Franschhoek which allows you to visit several wineries, as you can hop on and off whenever you choose. The wineries rang from small family-run vineyards to sprawling estates, with many offering a food pairing with their wines. The food scene here is fantastic, too. Take a food tour of Stellenbosch, where you can sample some of the culinary delights on offer.

South Africa

Kruger National Park

The largest national park in South Africa, Kruger National Park is also probably the most famous. It’s home to the ‘Big Five’ –  lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo – as well as hundreds of other species, including zebra, giraffe and hippo along with over 500 species of bird. Go on two game drives with some of the most knowledgeable guides in South Africa, as you search for local wildlife and witness the most incredible sunrises. The safari lodges in Kruger are boutique and intimate – whether you choose a luxury tented camp or a more structured option, you’re bound to be impressed. We’d recommend at least two nights on safari to make the most of your experience, from close encounters with animals to the traditional South African braai.
