We offer a range of prices to suit your budget and aspirations – from opulent to no-frills. Our tailor-made itineraries will help make your dreams come true – from wine-tasting tours and whale watching to ‘star beds’ and walking safaris in Big 5 country. The duration of your safari could be anything from less than a week to a couple of weeks in paradise - depending on your requirements.


Your accommodation in Cape Town will be at guest houses or hotels that are conveniently located near the major nighttime hub of the city centre and the V&A Waterfront. Your days will be spent exploring the popular landmarks of the Cape Peninsula - including Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, the most iconic landmark in South Africa, the magnificent Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Boulders Beach for penguins that waddle along golden beaches amongst holidaymakers, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the famous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were imprisoned during the apartheid years and Cape Point. Crazy people might attempt to cram all of these iconic experiences into one day, but we recommend at least two to three days to ensure you get the most out of each experience.

And why not enjoy Cape Town from above, with a spectacular helicopter flip over the Mother City?

For the outdoor, sporty types, Cape Town is awash with mountain bike routes and hiking trails, abseiling and paragliding sites, diving, kayaking and surfing spots and boat-based activities such as shark, whale and dolphin spotting. After each thoroughly enjoyable day, you could retire to a quiet dinner at your hotel or at one of Cape Town’s famous restaurants.

The Cape Winelands - historic wine estates in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Constantia - are a 30 to 90-minute drive from Cape Town city centre. You could go out for the day on a guided tour or a self-drive in your rented vehicle. For serious wine tasters, staying overnight in a boutique Winelands hotel or farm manor house is also an option.


The iconic Okavango Delta is a lush wilderness of papyrus, impenetrable reed beds, grassy floodplains, tree-covered islands and a complex network of water channels of varying depths, engineered and maintained by hippos and elephants.

Some areas are permanently underwater, and others only when the rejuvenated annual floodwaters arrive from Angola. This constant ebb and flow of water has created one of the most fascinating and diverse ecosystems on the planet. Unsurprisingly, the Okavango Delta is both a RAMSAR Site and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Okavango Delta wildlife includes the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) – although rhinos are rarely seen – many antelope species, zebras, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and good populations of cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs, as well as a plethora of smaller species such as serval, aardwolf, pangolin, aardvark and bat-eared fox. You will see more wildlife in areas that are not permanently flooded.

A bucket list activity unique to this area is gliding down the myriad of waterways on a mokoro (a traditional dugout canoe). Video: sunset mokoro. Your poler guide will expertly slide the mokoro along channels surrounded by tall papyrus and reeds, giving you a unique perspective and photographic opportunity as you silently sneak up on birds, frogs, otters and possibly even larger animals such as hippos, crocodiles and elephants. A lucky few will see the elusive and wary sitatunga antelope.

Birdwatching can be spectacular, with over 400 species, including avian jewels such as Pel’s fishing owl, slaty egret, pygmy goose, crowned and wattled cranes, Western banded snake eagle, coppery-tailed coucal and colonies of incandescent carmine bee-eaters
