Cape Town, Cape Winelands and Kruger

The Mother City, fine wining and dining and a safari under the stars

If you are tight on time but still want to get in the best that South Africa has to offer, then this is the perfect 9-day itinerary for you. It starts in the Mother City with 3 nights to explore this first class, cosmopolitan city that uniquely combines beauty and nature with history and culture. It is then off to the Cape Winelands for 2 nights of pure wining and dining indulgence in one of the most beautiful and prestigious wine regions of the world. A flight across the country will then deliver you into the heart of South Africa’s premier wildlife reserve, the world famous Sabi Sands in the Kruger and your romantic and exclusive home for the next 3 nights. Known for its big predators and especially for its leopards, you will shiver with anticipation wondering what might lurk just around the corner. But without a doubt, the highlight of this trip is your last night, which you will spend in the most sumptuous treehouse you have ever seen. Just before sunset after your evening game drive, your ranger will take you to your private treehouse, a luxurious open platform perched on stilts in the middle of the bush, where you will be left alone in complete privacy with a lovingly prepared picnic dinner. Your only other companions for the night will be the sounds and calls of the African bush and a blanket of stars to fall asleep under.
