South Africa in Style: Cape, Kalahari & Safari

13 days from £8,940 for 2024 per person

When you visualise South Africa, do you dream of epic star-filled skies, charming colonial heritage and unparalleled game spotting – but done in exclusive style and the height of comfort? For those who like the best of the best, with plenty of flair, this itinerary will not disappoint. 

Chic and sunny Cape Town is the perfect gateway to this impressive country. People-watch at the excellent seafood restaurants and admire regal Table Mountain which keeps watch over the city. For a unique perspective, enjoy a Stand-Up Paddle Board tour from the buzzing V&A Waterfront to the Cape Peninsula; explore the fish market and see the seals at Kalk Bay Harbour, meet penguins at one of our secret beaches and snorkel in rock pools the size of swimming pools. 

The Winelands is the next stop on your itinerary. Just a short hop from Cape Town, you will relish this quiet and tranquil atmosphere. Stay on a 300-year-old Dutch Colonial farm estate, brought up to date with a beautiful spa, a plethora of wine-tasting options and exceptional organic dining experiences which celebrate the fresh produce of the farm and the surrounding region.

Now – to the wilds of Africa. Just the name Kalahari summons up visions of burnt orange vistas, wide-open landscapes and unique wildlife. This itinerary offers a rare opportunity to stay at Tswalu Kalaha in South Africa's largest game reserve – so exclusive and protected that only 30 guests are allowed at a time. Revel in the solitude of this energising and once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

The last few days of your trip could be your most memorable. Stay and safari within the exclusive Sabi Sands game reserve, an unfenced extension of Kruger National Park only accessible to its guests. Experience the best of South African game spotting but without the crowds and enjoy unsurpassed luxury at the intimate Dulini Lodge, which oozes style and sophistication.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
