This program offers the best of South Africa and a Seychelles private island getaway in 12 luxurious nights. The first half of your trip takes you from South Africa’s Cape Winelands and the charming, historic town of Franschhoek to four nights of safari in Kruger National Park.
Begin in Winelands’ Franschhoek Valley, home to over 300 hundreds of years of wine-making history. Here you can indulge in sumptuous comfort at La Residence – a tranquil getaway set on 30-acres of private estate surrounded by vineyards, plum orchards and the valley’s rolling countryside and mountainous backdrop. A wine-tasting is, of course, a highlight; visit the oldest family-owned wine farms and soak in the ambience of the area’s Cape Dutch architecture and history. Walking and cycling through the countryside, or between estates and tastings, are perfect ways to enjoy the region’s beauty and charm. For art-lovers, there are plenty of art galleries and pottery studios to enjoy. La Motte, a nearby wine estate features a gallery dedicated to JH Pierneef, one of South Africa's most famous artists.
Continue east to Kruger, South Africa’s flagship national park and one of the largest in Africa. Watch in absolute awe and wonder as a lion stalks its prey, or as a cheetah chases a fleeing antelope at breathtaking speed. Pursue Kruger’s Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino) on daily game drives with your professional guide and tracker, in addition to the hundreds of wild species that call the park home. Community visits and guided safari walks – in which you track animals on foot through the wilderness, and gain a deep appreciation for the complex landscapes and ecosystem around you – are all available at your premier accommodation:Lebombo Lodge. This ultra luxurious lodge features a selection of bold, contemporary open plan suites suspended above the N’Wanetsi River, along with a communal rooftop terrace, wine studio and swimming pool.
For the latter half of your journey, spend six nights in the Seychelles. Overnight at Maia Luxury Resort on the main island, then escape to Fregate Private Island for the ultimate getaway. Make the most of this conservation wonderland surrounded by pristine waters: explore the island on foot with a resident conservationist and hike or bike through the lush scenery. Join Fregate’s conservation team and search for emerging sea turtle hatchlings or participate in the tortoise adoption program. Take to the water and spend your afternoons snorkeling or scuba diving. Surfing and kayaking equipment is at your disposal, and boating excursions with local fishermen or Fregate staff for deep-sea fishing are all available to you.
