Traverse South Africa from Cape Town to Pretoria, with Winelands and safari stays and an iconic Blue Train trip through jaw-dropping landscapes - includes breakfast, some full board stays and all travel

Day 1: UK - Cape Town

Arrive in Cape Town after your flight from the UK. Transfer to your hotel and settle in, then take a wander along the nearby waterfront for your first views of the city.

Days 2-4: Cape Town

Spend three days at leisure getting to know vibrant, historically charged Cape Town. The flat-topped beauty of Table Mountain is of course a must-see, as is the magnificent Boulders Beach. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 5: Cape Town - Stellenbosch

Today you’ll be leaving Cape Town behind and making your way to Stellenbosch, which sits in the Cape Winelands roughly 50 kilometres outside the city. You’ll find world-class wine and stellar hospitality here, alongside hiking trails, wine tours and golfing. (Meals: breakfast)

Days 6 & 7: Stellenbosch

Sit back and relax with a glass of the finest South African wine in hand, it’d be rude not to. With two days at leisure here, there’s as much time for sampling the local grapes as you want. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 8: Stellenbosch - Cape Town

This morning you’ll transfer to Cape Town station, ready to board the Blue Train for a luxe journey to Pretoria. 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: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 9: Blue Train journey - Kimberley - Blue Train journey


Today you’ll enjoy breakfast served between 6am and 9am, and lunch between 11.30am and 2.30pm. After lunch, the train will stop at Kimberley station for an excursion to the Railway Museum and Open Mine Museum. Return to the train for a glass of sherry served in a commemorative glass, then relax before dinner and more post-dinner goodies. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 10: Blue Train journey - Pretoria - Entabeni Game Reserve

You’ll arrive in Pretoria after breakfast, then be whisked off to the Entabeni Game Reserve. Arrival time permitting, you’ll head out on an afternoon game drive before retiring to the lodge for dinner. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Days 11 & 12: Entabeni Game Reserve


Spend two days enjoying morning and afternoon game activities on the reserve, with two game drives per stay included, plus adrenaline activities, bird watching and stargazing all available (all at an additional cost). (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 13: Entabeni Game Reserve - UK


After breakfast, transfer to Johannesburg Airport for your flight back to the UK. (Meals: breakfast)

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.
