South Africa: Cape Wine-lands & Capetown - New 2014 Tour


The Region

Cape Town is one of the world's most picturesque tourist destinations and most beautiful cities in the world. It is situated amidst majestic mountains and is surrounded by pristine white beaches. Often called the 'cosmopolitan hub of Africa', it is home to a rich cultural and historical heritage, vibrant restaurants and nightlife and a multitude of activities - from extreme sports to leisurely scenic cruises and world-class shopping. From Paarl, the tour continues to Franschhoek - Nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape Wine-lands and magnificent Franschhoek Valley. This is the food and wine heartland of the entire country, where splendid wines are grown and their top chefs create award-winning international cuisine.

After your visit to Cape Town and touring South Africa’s wine and culinary centers, you move on to Kruger National Park for 4 Safari Game Drives!

Kruger National Park / Greater Kruger Region

One of Africa’s leading attractions, the Kruger National Park / Greater Kruger Region is a premier game sanctuary that covers more than 20,000 square kilometres of land between the Crocodile River in the south and the Limpopo in the north. It also boasts the greatest species diversity in Africa – more than 140 resident mammal species, including the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino). You’re likely to see zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, wild dog and vast antelope herds. The varied terrain is also home to more than 300 species of trees, including baobabs, marulas and mopanes, countless insects and fascinating plants and grasses.

Accommodation

Located in the heart of the picturesque Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the One & Only Cape Town offers an unprecedented level of luxury in South Africa. This chic waterfront resort is the perfect gateway to experience the rare and enchanting adventures of the continent - an idyllic resort hotel and spa for life's most memorable moments. The stylish island design and African flair is portrayed by the One & Only Cape Town hotel's architecture, waterways, islands, numerous bridges and landscaped tropical gardens. The crescent- shaped architecture of the seven-story Marina Rise at the One & Only Cape Town provides admirable views of Table Mountain and Signal Hill from 91 spacious rooms and suites.

Le Quartier Français - A hidden country inn of captivating charm, Le Quartier Français is situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, the Franschhoek valley - home to the French Huguenots and gourmet capital of the Cape. Steeped in the history of the Cape Winelands, over the years, the original building has made the transition from labourers' cottages to an exclusive country inn. A little French, a little foreign, a little style they like to call Cape Provençal. Le Quartier Français is a splash of style in the heart of the historic village of Franschhoek, a quaint corner of the Cape Winelands that is forever a little French. Le Quartier Français offers 15 luxurious en suite bedrooms, which overlook a central landscaped garden with a natural pool.

The Lodge at Sabi Sands in Krueger was at the forefront of the development of the open vehicle Safari where qualified guides provide a safari experience that is both personal and highly informative, affording close contact with the fauna and flora of the region.
