South Africa luxury travel first begins in Johannesburg at one of the world’s leading boutique hotels. Indeed, this well-kept secret is a superb model of African elegance. Over two nights, it will serve as your home away from home as you explore the vibrant city of Johannesburg. Also take time to visit the Alexandria and Soweto townships.

Next, fly into Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. Over two days, enjoy an eclectic mix of cultures, natural and unspoiled scenery, pristine beaches, and the splendid Indian Ocean. Indeed, the region’s abundant sea life and modern cities juxtapose against rural settlements. While here, explore Durban via vehicle and guided charter. Additionally, relax with the beachfront access, spa treatments, and fine cuisine at your luxury accommodations in Umhlanga.

After soaking in the sun, it is time to experience the Big Five game of South Africa’s wilderness. The best place to do so in KwaZulu-Natal is, of course, from the luxury confines of the Phinda Private Game Reserve. Spend four days enjoying twice daily game drives, as well as romantic dining venues in the heart of the African bush. Your accommodation is surrounded by 54,500 acres of Phinda’s prime conservation land. Seven distinct habitats shelter an abundance of wildlife, including Africa’s Big Five and more than 380 bird species.

Your final stop awaits across the border in Mozambique at a luxurious resort and the chic private suites and Mozambican hospitality found there. Spend four days relaxing on the Mozambique beaches and partaking in the many land and sea excursions available in the surrounding area. Explore beyond the pool to the secluded beach or hop on a boat for a private picnic lunch on a deserted island. On land, activities include horseback riding and a scenic helicopter flight. Your journey comes to a close with a flight from Vilankulos back to Johannesburg.
