Witness the breathtaking landscapes of South Africa, from colourful Cape Town to the rolling Winelands and everything in between - includes travel, an unforgettable Blue Train journey, safari stay and more

Days 1-4: Cape Town

Crowned by the flat-topped beauty that is Table Mountain (and smaller sibling, Lion’s Head), Cape Town is more than just a pretty face; its creative soul shines through in a rich arts and culture scene, a jam-packed festival calendar and an innovative culinary landscape. After being greeted at their airport and taken to your hotel, Protea Hotel by Marriott, you’ll have four days to float around and see all the sights. While you’re here, you’ll have the option of joining an open-top bus tour to learn more about the city as you hop from one attraction to the next (Meals: breakfast).

Days 5-7 Stellenbosch

You’ll be leaving Cape Town behind and making your way to Stellenbosch, which sits in the famed Cape Winelands roughly 50 kilometres outside the city. You’ll check in to De Zalze Lodge, a beautiful estate showcasing classic Cape Dutch architecture. What else would you do with your time here in the Cape Winelands, other than take a wine tour or enjoy a tasting session at one of the area's famed wine estates? There are plenty of estates to discover nearby, some of which include cheese and charcuterie tastings too. Should you wish, you can opt to hop aboard The Franschhoek Wine Tram to immerse yourself in the Winelands’ iconic French Quarter. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 8: Stellenbosch - Blue Train journey

This morning, you’ll transfer back to Cape Town station, ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. One of the world's most luxurious trains, the Blue Train offers fine dining, first-class service and wood-panelled interiors - your 1,600-kilometre journey to Pretoria will fly by. Underfloor heating, deluxe air-conditioned suites and an attentive butler service are some of the highlights on board as you take in the impressive dramatic scenery. You’ll receive a suite orientation from your butler before nibbling on high tea, then spend the afternoon enjoying the views and your suite before dinner is served, followed by drinks, cognacs and cigars in the club car. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 9: Blue Train journey & Kimberley

As you fly through the idyllic South African landscape, you’ll make a pit-stop at Kimberley. Known primarily as a diamond mine in the 19th century, you’ll visit the Open Mine Museum to view interesting and historical sites. Return to the train for a glass of sherry served in a commemorative glass, then relax before dinner and more delectable treats. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 10: Blue Train journey & Pretoria

Your epic Blue Train journey has come to an end at Pretoria, where you’ll be whisked to Sheraton Pretoria for one night. Steeped in history, this city is full of gracious architecture surrounded by leafy suburbs where multiculturalism is now thriving. The city is still growing, and it’s certainly a sight to behold. (Meals: breakfast)

Days 11 & 12: Entabeni Safari Conservancy


Leaving the city behind, you’ll be taken to your luxury lakeside digs for the ultimate in safari experiences at Entabeni Lakeside Lodge. While you’re here, you’ll embark on a game drive through the African bush as you try to catch a glimpse of the native lions, leopards, buffalo, elephant, rhino and more. Other activities include boat cruises, swimming and bird watching along with more high-octane thrills like abseiling, quadbiking and paintballing (Meals: full board)

Day 13: Entabeni Safari Conservancy - UK

After breakfast, transfer to Tambo International Airport for your flight back home. (Meals: breakfast)
