Grand South African Tour – SAGT8
The itinerary for this Grand South African Tour below has been carefully designed to give you a taste of exciting, endless possibilities. Private game reserves can be tailored to suit your exact preferences. Set out in search of the Big Five at Ngala Private Game Reserve. The reserve shares unfenced borders with renowned Kruger National Park. Relish in the wealth of wildlife. Cape Town is widely described as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It nestles in a natural bowl between the vast Atlantic Ocean and the city’s picturesque Table Mountain. The city is a combination of historical coastal charm and urbane sophistication.
Day 1 Cape Town
Your South African adventure begins when you are met on arrival by a representative and transferred to your 5 star hotel.
Days 2 & 3 Cape Town
Cape Town’s scenic beauty lies in its diversity and contrasts, from the buzzing CBD and glittering oceans to the ancient mountains that form the spine of the peninsula. The mountains are not only beautiful, but offer plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy nature, whether you’re exploring the iconic Table Mountain or any of the lesser-known peaks.
Table Mountain is just one feature of a 50-kilometre Cape Fold mountain range. It stretches from Signal Hill all the way to Cape Point. This range also includes the Back Table (behind Table Mountain) and what are known as the Twelve Apostles, along the Atlantic coast.
You may wish to take a cable car to the top of iconic Table Mountain. Marvel at the magnificent views from its flat top. Browse vibrant Greenmarket Square, one of the city’s oldest markets. Walk through Company Garden, established by Dutch settlers in 1652. Visit the traditional Malay Quarter, with it brightly coloured houses, and indulge in a glimpse into one of the city’s vibrant cultures.
Optionally, if you prefer to explore the Winelands in a truly unique style, travel to one of the country’s premier wine estate by helicopter. After tasting some of the Cape’s famous vintages, you can choose to return to Cape Town on the back of a vintage motorcycle, drinking in magnificent views of the coastline.
