Catch a cable car up the iconic Table Mountain for some truly awe-inspiring views, visit the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens or pop along to see the playful penguins at Boulders Beach.
Leaving Cape Town behind, you’ll make the journey to Stellenbosch in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Stay in the stunning Spier Hotel and avail of the many onsite facilities such as the Spa and the hotel’s popular wine bar. With a central location you and your family will be just minutes away from the myriad of boutiques, museums and wine estates that historic Stellenbosch has to offer.

To finish off this incredible holiday, you will spend two nights at Hlosi Game Lodge-Amakhala Game Game Reserve located in South Africa's Eastern Cape. Each day begins with a morning safari as the sun brings the bush to life. During evening game drives you may be lucky enough to witness the thrill of a lion hunt, be surrounded by a herd of elephant, or watch as a family of hippo emerge from the water for a night of grazing. As nocturnal life begins to stir, return safely to the lodge for a hearty dinner. The reserve is situated along the Garden Route, making it the perfect South African safari destination to compliment a Cape Town visit and a trip along the country’s beautiful coast.
