Look forward to...

Seeing whales, penguins and more on stunning Altantic beaches.

Swimming with great white sharks.

Jetting around the cape of storms on a powerboat.

Hitting the dizzying heights of Table Mountain by riding the 360-degree rotating cable car.

Gazing over the vast savannah from the luxurious pool of Tswalu Kalahari.

Sharks and penguins, buzzing cities, lush winelands, world-famous mountain-top views, and unbeatable game-packed safaris: South Africa has it all. Taste some of the world's finest wines in Franschhoek, swim with the world's most feared predator, watch top-class game in the Kalahari, and admire the unmissable views of stylish Cape Town, and all in complete luxury, of course.

city buzz in cape town

In a competition for the world's best all-round city, Cape Town is definitely up there. From sunbathing on the hip beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay to abseiling down the mighty Table Mountain (or even flying over in a Fighting Jet), to hitting the best of the sun-fixed New Years Eve parties. Whatever you want to do, we can arrange. For a mind-blowing, snap-happy beach expedition, head to Cape Point and share the beach with native African penguins: not your average day at the seaside. And for spectacular views and discerning style, the luxurious and intimate Kensington Place Hotel has the lot.

With beautiful tree-lined streets, local galleries and boutique shops, not to mention gourmet food, Franschhoek is the gastronomic home of South Africa. We will arrange private tastings for you with first class wine makers at local vineyards. Go on, excite your taste buds. Stay at Le Quartier Francais, a privately owned luxury hotel, where fine dining is top of the agenda. And to counterbalance the indulgences of the day, grab mountain bikes and experience the winelands in a more energetic way.

whales in walker bay

Hermanus in Walker Bay is a quaint coastal town with a twist, where from June to December the town's dedicated whale crier sounds his horn when the Southern Right Whales are spotted along the shore. And the best bit? The whales will be in clear view from your private suite at Oceans Eleven Guest House. You'll need a pinch to believe you're not dreaming. And for an extra rush, head to nearby Gaansbai for a spot of cage diving. Shark alley is the area with the densest population of Great Whites in the world: once immersed in these waters a metal cage will be all that separates you from these colossal predators. Previous diving experience is not required, a lot of bottle most definitely is.

kalahari safari

And finally, a short flight from Cape Town lies 1,000 sq km reserve of semi-arid landscape in the Kalahari Desert home to a surprising number of rare animals, reptiles and insects. Spend three days with some of the best guides in the continent, seeking out Cheetahs, Caracals and the critically endangered Black Rhino. Horseback and walking safaris are possible too. Your private chalet at Tswalu Kalahari is the ultimate in secluded luxury, traditionally built with thatch roof, en-suite bathrooms and private sundeck – the perfect, rustic way to end the trip of a lifetime.
