A wholesome holiday exploring South Africa's stunning landscapes, including flights, some transfers, car hire and two bush safaris

South Africa packs a punch, with wildlife, beaches, bustling cities and lush Winelands - you’ll get the chance to discover its varied landscape on this nine-night adventure. Landing in cosmopolitan Cape Town, you'll spend your first three nights at Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge, a short walk from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and its buzzing restaurants, shops and marina. Take some time to explore the city, perhaps taking the cable car to the top of looming Table Mountain, visiting Cape Point, wandering the verdant Kirstenbosch Gardens or viewing the city's colonial buildings.

You'll then venture on eastbound to Stellenbosch in South Africa's Winelands, where you'll spend two nights at WedgeView Country House & Spa - a five-star hotel set in an authentic country house, complete with charming thatched roof and an outdoor swimming pool. Head out into the region to get a true taste of it, by visiting vineyards and sampling the wines and cheese with which the area is synonymous.

It's onto South Africa's world-renowned wildlife next, with two nights in Oudtshoorn - famous for its ostrich farms - at the spectacular Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, set by a magnificent waterhole, which you can admire from the serene outdoor pool. If you don’t catch a glimpse of the Big Five here, don’t worry; two games drives will see you heading out into the bush in the hope of spotting hippos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo and more.

Finally, you'll cruise west, along stunning coastal roads, for a two-night stay at the Harbour House Hotel in Hermanus. This is a great spot for whale watching and shark spotting, or just kicking back at the ocean-view infinity pool to wind down after your exciting trip. Whilst here, take the opportunity to stop at Cape Agulhas - the southernmost tip of the continent of Africa, and the crossroads of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

Good to know


This holiday allows you to spread the cost of your break by paying only the deposit upfront. The remaining balance is due at a later date and is to be paid directly to the holiday supplier (the exact date will be stated on your booking confirmation).

Please note that both your outbound and inbound flights are overnight, so please bear this in mind when planning the time you'll be away for.

Can't commit to booking right now?

Hold a date for only £25 while you decide.

  • Pay £25 to hold a date until the end of the sale.
  • If you choose to buy it, the money will go towards your purchase, if not, the cash will be credited to your Secret Escapes account.

Important: Please note, this is not a deposit, complete or guaranteed booking; holding the date simply prevents other members from swooping in and booking your preferred date while you're still having a think about it.

What is a deposit?

In short, you pay Secret Escapes a non-refundable deposit to secure your holiday, then you pay the holiday supplier the remaining balance of the holiday - as advertised - at a later date (before you travel).

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
