Experience South Africa in a very special way, visiting some unique places on this 12-day package to three very different regions, and all malaria free, so perfect for the whole family, young or older. The Waterberg, Kalahari and the stylish city of Cape Town.
There are not too many areas in South Africa that can rival the beauty of the Waterberg region with its rolling green hills and vast grassy plains framed by a dramatic mountain range providing a safe haven to local wildlife including the Big 5, and a comfortable 3.5 hour drive from Johannesburg. Spend 3 x nights at Marataba Safari Lodge, sitting in a private concession of pristine wilderness within the Marakele National Park. A contemporary styled luxury lodge fashioned with local African art and artefacts, it features 15 spacious and stylish tented suites blending into the landscape with stunning views towards the mountains. The activities on offer are morning and early evening open-vehicle game drives, bush walks, bird watching, astronomy, and romantic bush dining. A special activity here that should not be missed is a morning or sunset water safari on the Matlabas River. One of Marataba’s experienced guides conducts a slow cruise down the river, which provides plentiful game-viewing opportunities. Expect to see hippo, plenty of birdlife, and local wildlife, including elephant, coming to the water’s edge to drink. Nothing quite so tranquil as enjoying drinks and snacks at sunset on the river!
Tswalu Motse sits against the dramatic backdrop of the Korannaberg Mountains, beneath the Kalahari sun. Spend 5 x nights in this semi-desert location. The property is scenically beautiful, with its natural stone, thatch and wood structure illuminated by the changing light of day. Nine secluded suites fuse contemporary furnishings with traditional African style. Tswalu, meaning ‘new beginnings’ is known for its first class service and completely flexible programmes, individually tailored to meet each guest’s personal requirements, no set times for meals or activities. The Kalahari biosphere is inhabited by the rare desert-adapted black rhino, meerkat colonies, pangolin, Kalahari lion and brown hyena.
In Cape Town your stay for 3 x nights will be at More Quarters, located at the foot of Table Mountain in the vibrant area of Kloof Street. Perfect for those independent travellers loving the idea and privacy of apartment-style living, while enjoying the convenience of five star service, More Quarters offer a collection of stylish one and two bedroom apartments. The 18 unique apartments are fully-equipped offering home-away-from-home apartment living at its best, with open-plan lounge/dining areas and full kitchens, some with courtyards or private terraces, and includes a delicious breakfast daily. Easily accessible on foot to a variety of boutique stores, restaurants and bars, there is also a private car and driver available to guests on request for convenience in visiting the local attractions of the city.
