Beyond the craggy peaks and buzzing streets of Cape Town is another South Africa, one ripe with succulent food and wine, coves teeming with resident penguins, and safari reserves where the giants of Africa roam. Delve into these corners of the country on this adventure that takes you from the brightly-coloured streets of the country’s metropolis, to sipping and dining your way through its culinary capital in the Franschhoek Valley, and capping it all off with a luxury safari in the Sabi Sands, one of Africa’s most renowned parks, to track the Big Five. Jaw-dropping cityscapes, world-class wines and exotic wildlife —in South Africa, you really can have it all.

Trip designed by Travel Expert Michele Harvey and T+L Editors

Day by Day

Welcome to South Africa! Upon arrival, a B&R representative will meet you at the airport and drive you to More Quarters, your luxury home for the next four nights.

Savour your morning coffee atop Table Mountain with the sprawling city and ocean serving as your backdrop. Soak up Cape Town’s vibe with a guided walk of its must-see sites.

Journey to the Cape Peninsula beginning in the bohemian fishing village of Kalk Bay. Embark on a gentle hike to a secluded beach teeming with penguins and to a fabled naval town.

Today you’ll have free time to explore Cape Town on your own. Perhaps opt to stroll through the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and traverse its famous tree canopy walkway.

Travel by private car to your next hotel in Franschhoek, the heart of South Africa’s culinary headquarters. Stroll through exquisite gardens or peruse art galleries on oak-lined streets.

Savour the region’s award-winning wines at private estates accompanied by South Africa's top wine expert. Then, spend time in Stellenbosch to browse boutique shops, sip craft coffee and meander the botanical gardens.

Your Sabi Sand adventure begins as you step off your aircraft, where you'll be greeted by your guide. Settle into your luxury safari lodge and get a head start on exploring the area’s biodiversity.

Revel in your first full day at the Dulini River Lodge, where you’ll have twice daily game drives with a professional guide and tracker, as well as the option to join some interpretive bush walks.

Meander along the Sabi and Sand Rivers that run through the heart of the reserve. All meals and drinks are taken care of at the Dulini meaning you can enjoy your time here carefree.

This morning, you may have time for one final activity at the lodge before you head to the airstrip and make your way to Johannesburg for your evening flight. Safe travels!
