When you hear ‘Big Five’ you probably think wildlife, but we’re giving it a whole new meaning on this ultimate five stop trip. You’ll start this adventure in Cape Town, exploring the city like a local with our expert guides before being whisked off to Hermanus then Franschhoek where nature, food and wine reign supreme. Stop four is the exclusive Sabi Sand game reserve where Africa’s most iconic wildlife is right on your doorstep.
Captivating Cape Town
Arrive in South Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, Cape Town for three nights where you will stay in the perfect base from which to explore all that the thriving city has to offer. Spend your days conquering majestic Table Mountain, wining and dining on the V&A Waterfront and sunning yourself on the stunning beaches. Be on the lookout for a few native African penguins.
Back to nature
On day four you will transfer to the whale watching capital of Hermanus, a two hour drive. You will spend two nights in a place that boasts some of the world’s most unique plant, bird and animal species all whilst overlooking the sandy shores of Walker Bay. Feast on the finest cuisines and wines whilst watching spectacular sunsets or join the specialised guides in exploring the natural wonderland on foot, horseback or 4×4 drives.
Indulge your senses
Next, a two hour transfer to the Winelands to get back to basics in the best possible way. Spend two nights in the wine capital, strolling around vineyards, orchards and quirky shops. Sample the delights of this serious foodie spot, and sip on fine wines while taking in jaw-dropping mountain scenery.
Spot the big five
For the next leg of your South African adventure you’ll head to the exclusive Sabi Sand game reserve for the next three nights. You barely have to leave your deck to view Africa’s most magnificent wildlife, but venture out on a guided drive and you will find the area packed with wildlife – elephants, lions, rhino, buffalo and leopard. You are almost guaranteed to spot more animals than people in this exclusive wilderness.
