  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to South Africa

    Africa has long been the subject of intense wonder and fascination for Europeans, and South Africa offers an immense richness and variety of human experience. The obvious attractions are the magnificent wildlife in their natural habitat and the sensation of the vastness of the African horizon of grasslands, forest, flood plains, desert and dunes. On top of this you have the vibrancy of Cape Town and its remarkable Table Mountain, the beauty of the nearby winelands and their historic Cape Dutch towns and the dramatic scenery of the garden route along the coast. We offer you the chance to visit some of the most world-famous parks and regions in Southern Africa, renowned for their superb wildlife viewing and stunning scenery, including the Kruger in South Africa. 
    Since South Africa offers such a multitude of activities and accommodation ranging from hotels and country houses to game lodges and luxury tented camps, we want you to be able to pick out what most suits and appeals to you. As such, we offer fully flexible itineraries along with tailor made pricing. It is possible to fly into Cape Town and then out of Johannesburg with both British Airways and Virgin offering daily scheduled flights, making it even easier to cover a lot of ground in comfort. For travel within South Africa, we can arrange car hire for you or you may wish to opt for internal air transfers. A real highlight would be to take in South Africa’s scenery by travelling by rail. Rovos Rail and Blue Train both cover Cape Town to Pretoria as well as other routes including Cape Town to George along the Garden Route.

    Stretching beyond the confines of South Africa is simple and will add another dimension to your experience. We offer a selection of luxury camps in nearby Namibia and Botswana, and Dubai, the Seychelles and Mauritius are all within easy reach with direct flights to these destinations available from either Cape Town or Johannesburg.
