Itinerary Description:

This is the trip for those who want to play and stay with the best. Begin in the world-famous Kruger and on the private reserve of Royal Malewane. Accommodating only 20 guests, you’ll be spoiled and pampered as you enjoy twice-daily game drives, indulge in the spa, and dine on the delicious cuisine. While there you’ll jump to the top course in the country, Leopard Creek Golf Course, set alongside the Crocodile River.

Proceed next to the stunning Indian Ocean coastline and the village of Hermanus, where sightings of whales and sharks are commonplace. Birkenhead House will be your home for three nights as you perch on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and relax in the utmost luxury. While here you’ll motor inland to enjoy a round at Arabella Golf Club, a classic and top ten ranked parkland course.

On to the Winelands next and the magnificent La Residence. World-class service is the order of the day in your themed suite set in the heartland of wine farms. You’ll enjoy a full day tour of selected wine farms and vineyards with private wine tastings as well as a round at Pearl Valley Golf Estate, surrounded by the mountains and bordered by the vineyards.

Finally you’ll arrive in one of the world’s most international cities, Cape Town. The Cape Grace hotel, perfectly positioned on the waterfront, will host you as you explore the city and its culture. A full day tour of the city and the beautiful Cape Point will close out your time in South Africa.
