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.
