9-Nights Wilderness and Winelands 2019

Wilderness and Winelands Cape Town, Wine Country, Sabi Sand Game Reserve South Africa prides itself on its many spectacular and varied worlds, from Cape Town's urban verve to wild, sun-lit dominions like the famed Sabi Sand Private Reserve, to pastoral (and culinary and oenophilic) masterpieces like the sublime Cape Winelands. Wilderness and Winelands pays superbly paced tribute to those worlds in a mere but bountiful 12 days. We begin at one of the newest of Sir Richard Branson's thrilling African creations, Ulusaba Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand. Then we're off to an idyl at Branson's Mont Rochelle, in the heart of the cheery and pacifying Winelands. We end in a jazzy upbeat at Cape Town's glamorous One&Only, named Africa's number one hotel in a recent Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice poll. Safari Highlights Game drives, safari walks, and star-gazing from the observatory at Sir Richard Branson’s Ulusaba Game Reserve. Private Cape Winelands tasting and viticulture experience at luminary wineries like Fairview, Kanonkop, and Ernie Els. Intimate, comprehensive Cape Town touring: towering Table Mountain, spectacular, super-verdant Cape Peninsula (penguins!), Victorian-era towns, the festively multi-cultural Malay Quarter, Rosie’s heartfully inspiring Kitchen, and more. Expert guides and facilitators at every step of the way, plus our unique 24-hour Concierge Service.

10-Nights From Cape to Delta 2019

From Cape to Delta Cape Town, Sabi Sabi, Okavango Delta One of Africa’s many magics takes place where nature at its most vivid and eloquent meets one of humanity’s highest arts: soothing, beautiful, joyfully expressive luxury. We tend to think of the two as unrelated, but they aren’t, as From Cape to Delta so enjoyably proves. We look up to gorgeous Table Mountain from the exquisite�One&Only�Cape Town, and wander in lovely little towns and vineyards backdropped by regal mountains in the Winelands. And we’re inspired by untroubled, unfiltered nature in the storied Okavango Delta while we laze productively at Selinda, one of Africa’s finest luxury-encounters-wilderness camps. Safari Highlights Cape Town proudly presented, with emphasis on natural and civic beauty and pizzaz: Table Mountain, high-spirited Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, heart-lifting Rosie�s Kitchen, the exciting and multi-chromatic Malay Quarter. Tastings and private tours in the beautiful Cape Winelands and eye-popping scenery and lovely little towns on the spectacular Cape Peninsula. Classic, enthralling game viewing in the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park. Twenty-four hour service by expert guides and facilitators and Micato�s crack, one-of-a-kind Concierge Service. Three invariably amazing nights in the miraculous Okavango Delta, exploring its waterways and nearby plains, marvelling at its bountiful, varietal wildlife.

14-Nights African Splendour 2019

African Splendor We�re not sure why, but great journeys often involve great contrasts. African Splendour is a case in point. On the full 17-day safari (the first 6 days in Southern Africa are optional), we range through 34 degrees of latitude and four countries, but, most engagingly and contrastingly, we experience the diverse excitements of Cape Town�s urban pizzazz, the watery colossus of Victoria Falls, and the wondrous game lands of the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem, where the wandering rains compel the planet�s most momentous movement of big, interesting mammals. (And then there�s the Ngorongoro Crater, which really can�t be contrasted with any other place, because there really isn�t any other place remotely like it, at least on our home planet.) Those with a little less time can begin the safari on Day 8 in Nairobi before heading off to the quite engagingly contrasty Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti, and the Maasai Mara, high on the list of Africa�s supreme splendours. Safari Highlights A magnificent and varietal passage through fabled East and Southern African landmarks: buzzing and beautiful Cape Town, epic Victoria Falls, and the legendary game reserves of East Africa. A sterling collection of carefully curated hotels, camps and lodges, including the One&Only in Cape Town, Anantara�s newest hotel in Zambia, the stunning Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, and Sir Richard Branson�s personal camp in Kenya. A rich variety of experiences: wine tasting in the gorgeous Cape Winelands, exploring the wondrous Cape Point Nature Reserve on the continent�s southern tip; land and air views of stupendous Victoria Falls; eventful game drives and walks in the heart of East Africa�s big game country.

10-Nights The Travel Leisure Worlds Best Safari 2019

The Travel + Leisure World's Best Safari Featuring only "World's Best" List Hotels We're fans of Travel+Leisure's annual Best in the World polls. (Admittedly, we're just a bit prejudiced, having been voted World's Best Safari Outfitter by T+L a record nine times.) So a few years ago we decided to honour Travel+Leisure and its readers by creating an all-star safari that sets down at some of Africa's best hotels, as consistently recognized by the magazine (and by our happy guests). We begin with four nights in Cape Town's "knockout" One&Only, a resort of "outsize luxury" on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and a superb base for explorations in this most cosmopolitan of cities and its varied, magnificent environs. Then come Singita Lebombo or Singita Sweni Lodge-both much-admired, both located in Singita Kruger National Park-and, in the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to Kruger, Ebony or Boulders Lodge, two of the finest and most intelligently designed lodges on the continent. We end with a perennial favourite, the famed Royal Livingstone, where mist from nearby Victoria Falls freshens our day. Safari Highlights Four in-depth days in effervescent Cape Town, one-on-one meetings with local go-getters and experts, exhilarating visits to Table Mountain, the charmingly colorful Malay Quarter, inspirational Rosie’s Kitchen, and the city’s many other shopping, historical, and human highpoints. Encounters with, and oenophilic wisdom from elite vintners in the gorgeous Cape Winelands. Touchdown-to-takeoff service from expert guides and facilitators and 24-hour backup by our Concierge Service. Wildlife excursions by 4-wheel drive vehicles and on foot in a wonderfully isolated part of famed Kruger National Park, based from the exquisite Singita Safari Lodges (also: extraordinary mountain biking and visit to inspiring Singita culinary school). Two days of awe-striking views and rainforest trail walking at the world’s most stupendous waterfall, Victoria Falls.

9-Nights Botswanas Timeless Wilderness

Botswana's Timeless Wilderness Big Game, Splendid Isolation If we had to pick the most miraculous African place of all, it might well be the Okavango Delta, where the 1,000-milelong Okavango River gives up on its search for an outlet to the sea and seeps lifegivingly into the sands of one of the world's most uncompromising deserts, creating a vast and mesmerizing oasis. As Frans Lanting wrote in his elegiac book Okavango: Africa's Last Eden, "The [Delta's] very existence in the middle of the Kalahari Desert is nothing short of miraculous . . . like a dream." Botswana's wilderness is expansive and-to our scurrying senses-timeless, and the Okavango isn't its only dreamy place. Our under-two-week safari takes us to three others, right up near the top of African marvels: Chobe National Park and, up near the Zambian border, the exemplary Moremi Wildlife Reserve, quite close to another phenomenon of miraculous rarity, Victoria Falls. Safari Highlights Wending the animal-rich waterways and plains of the world-unique Okavango Delta by motorcraft, comfy dugout canoes, and well-provisioned 4-Wheel drive vehicles. Private, festive welcoming dinner with Felix and Jane Pinto’s dear Johannesburg friends. Expertly guided nature walks and interactive discovery sessions geared toward the Okavango’s marvelously adapted wildlife, its fascinating ecology, and sheer wilderness wonder. Visit to the evocative San rock paintings in the Gubatsa Hills. Beginning-to-trip’s-end services of expert guides and facilitators and our ceaselessly alert Concierge Service.
