Itinerary Description:

Begin your journey in the Cape Winelands, nestled in the village of Franschhoek and enjoying the country hospitality of Le Quartier Francais. Play a round at the nearby #5 ranked Pearl Valley Golf Estate, designed by Jack Nicklaus and surrounded by the Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountains. Enjoy a full-day tour of Cape Town and the world’s most picturesque drive, the Cape Peninsula, and enjoy the excellent dining and wines at Le Quartier Francais.

Continue on to the Garden Route and Fancourt Hotel Country Club and Golf Estate. The gorgeous landscaped acreage is home to three Gary Player-designed courses and you will enjoy a round on two of them – the Montagu, ranked #7, and The Links. Opened in 2000, The Links is touted as South Africa’s #2 ranked course and features a classic links design inspired by the best courses in Ireland and Scotland. Tee off in the shadow of the Outeniqua Mountains, relax in the luxurious accommodations, and experience the Fancourt Spa and shopping boutique in between rounds.

Close your golfing excursion in Kruger National Park and retire in the Lukimbi Safari Lodge. Play a round at nearby #1 ranked Leopard Creek Golf Course and Country Club on the southern border of the Kruger, with water features that are home to pods of hippos and a par-five ninth hole that is a treat for long hitters. Lukimbi offers twice-daily game drives into the reserve, with sightings of the Big Five and the sounds of the bush closing out your final day on this unforgettable adventure.
