Itinerary

Day 1

OVERNIGHT TRAVEL

Today, you will depart from New York JFK or Washington Dulles on your South African Airways flight.

Day 2

CAPE TOWN View Accommodation

Upon arrival in Johannesburg, you will connect to your two-hour flight to Cape Town.

On arrival in Cape Town, you will be met by your driver for the short transfer to your hotel. Enjoy your evening at leisure, exploring the beautiful city of Cape Town. Perhaps take time to explore the vibrant V&A Waterfront with its many shops and restaurants.

Overnight on a bed and breakfast basis at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa.

Day 3

Cape Town

After breakfast, you will be met by your local English-speaking driver-guide for your private full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes so you can explore each stop! Depart the hotel and flank the Atlantic Ocean en route to Hout Bay. Once a fishing community, it is now one of the most popular residential areas. You’ll have a chance to join a half-hour cruise to Seal Island (optional trip) or, for the not so adventurous, the fish market Mariners Wharf is a must.

The tour continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive, weather permitting. With a 200-meter drop on one side and a 200-meter rise on the other, you will make your way south following the Atlantic Ocean until you reach Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa. Your optional lunch stop is at the Fish Hoek Galley.

You’ll pass the naval base of Simonstown as you continue along the coast en route to see the penguin colony, which has become well established at Boulders Beach. Your last stop of the day is at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (optional +/- R65), home of some 3,500 species of Southern African fauna and flora. You’ll return to the hotel in the late afternoon, having seen some of the best the Cape has to offer!

Overnight on a bed and breakfast basis at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa.

The private reserve is home to an abundance of species including the "Big Five." Being predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year-round climate, it is the ideal African safari destination.

Enjoy morning and late afternoon game safaris in the African bush with experienced game rangers and Shangaan trackers. Safari game drives are undertaken at the best times of the day to avoid the harsh African sun while the rest of your day may be enjoyed at leisure at the lodge.
