This destination is fondly known as a world within one country – and after journeying through its diverse landscapes, we can see why. From sweeping savannahs and gorgeous coastlines, to enticing forests and soaring mountains, South Africa is the country that caters to all, and where no two places are the same.
Exploring Kruger's natural beauty.
Kruger National Park’s unspoilt wilderness is iconic, and one of our favourite places for spotting the big five. Its sweeping grassland is home to wonderful rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and more, making it one of the best parks for first time safari goers, and we just can’t get enough of its beautiful backdrop of granite kopjes and the soaring Lebombo Mountains.
We want you to have a personal experience, and so our team have numerous private game reserves that they just can’t wait to share with you. Offering pure exclusivity from the busy hotspots and filled with luxurious lodges, game reserves like the grassy plains of Sabi Sands – otherwise known as big cat country - are the perfect way to feel like you’re the only people on earth alongside these wonderful wild animals.
Cape Town, Winelands and the Garden Route
A trip to South Africa isn’t complete without exploring the Garden Route or Cape Town’s wonderful attractions. Table Mountain, Robben Island, Boulder’s Beach – we’ll ensure you experience these fantastic areas as intimately as possible. The city’s gourmet food scene is phenomenal too, and no wonder – the beautiful and verdant Winelands is brimming with fabulous vineyards – including in the towns of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
Seeing more on the Blue Train.
A private train whizzing through the country's landscape, the Blue Train is a luxurious and unique way to explore the country. The 30-hour journey makes its way over almost 1000 miles between Cape Town and Pretoria, offering luxurious amenities, afternoon excursions, and indulgent food and drink along the way.
Blending culture and luxury.
Africa is full of rich heritage, and where better to explore the history than at KwaZulu-Natal. Each day will differ from the next here – one day you’ll be spotting black and white rhino in the vast Phina Private Game Reserve, and the next will be spent visiting charming villages teeming with indigenous Zulu culture. This is certainly a more exclusive area, and our team have plenty of luxury lodges to recommend.
