Itinerary Description:

A wonderful two weeks along the stunning Indian Ocean with the best South Africa has to offer in golf and safari. Arrive in Johannesburg and recover from your trip at the Intercontinental Airport Sun. The next morning fly to the coast and transfer to the endless landscape of Great River Fish Lodge. Enjoy twice-daily game drives, relax in your suite set along the green banks of the river, and discover Africa in this private reserve setting.

Next it’s a short drive back to the coast to St. Francis and to one of Jack Nicklaus’ favorite links courses, the Top 10 St. Francis Links. Enjoy the quaint village of St. Francis and then continue to the village of Knysna and the spectacular Pezula Resort. While here play both the resort course as well as Simola Golf Course, set a bit inland from Pezula. Time at the resort, in the spa, touring the lagoon or shopping in the village will fill your leisure hours.

Next you’re on up the coast to George and to the famous Fancourt Hotel. Here, surrounded by the mountains and golf courses, you’ll enjoy world-class attention and luxury. Play both the Outeniqua and the Montagu courses during your stay here. Finally it’s back to Johannesburg for either your connecting flight home or an overnight at The Saxon.
