Cape Town, the Winelands and Kruger Luxury Journey (9 days)

Experience Cape Town, the lush Cape Winelands and a safari in the Kruger National Park and you'll fall under South Africa's spell

This journey will take you from the seaside city of Cape Town and the lush Cape Winelands to the African bushveld of the Kruger National Park. You'll soak up the Mother City's attractions, such as Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Point and the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach. You'll experience the beauty of the Cape Winelands with their impressive mountains and historic towns, and best of all, you'll taste their delicious wines and cheeses. For something completely different, you'll venture into the Kruger National Park for a safari that could bring you face to face with the Big Five and other African animals.
