This fabulous 12 night holiday example includes 4* and 5* accommodation including Cape Town, Cape Winelands, Garden Route and Safari. A wonderful introduction to beautiful South Africa!

Today you arrive early morning at Cape Town International Airport. You will collect your Group D automatic vehicle and self drive to the famous V & A Waterfront.

Stay at the 5* V&A Waterfront Luxury/Superior apartments which are perfectly located, just a step away from the Waterfront itself with all the shops, restaurants, cafes and bars you could wish for!

During your stay in this beautiful city, you can explore and discover Table Mountain & Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, take a trip out to Robben Island and see where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 22 years! Visit many of the great beaches or perhaps the Constantia Wine Valley - the options are endless

Indeed, no visit to Cape Town would be complete without a trip to the Cape Peninsula and we have included on DAY THREE a Private 1 Day Tour of the Peninsula to include Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope, the Penguins at Boulders Beach and the amazingly scenic Chapman's Peak Drive.

Today you will depart Waterfront and self drive to the small but stunning Cape Winelands town of Franschhoek. Here you will stay at the beautiful Mont Rochelle Hotel & Mountain Vineyard 5*

Your stay will be for 2 nights in a Shiraz room, with a private terrace and mountain views on a b & b basis

Franschhoek is known as "The Gourmet Capital of the Western Cape" and its small main road is packed with wonderful places to eat and enjoy the wonderful food of the region.

The many wine farms that are dotted around the area are also perfect for sampling the excellent wines of the area and on Day Six you will be taken on a half day's private guided wine tour with tastings at up to 3 vineyards and a cellar tour.

Today you will wave a fond farewell to Franschhoek and start your journey driving up the famous Garden Route.

You will overnight at the historic town of Swellendam - one of the oldest settlements in South Africa. The town is traditionally a stopping off point for those travelling up the Garden Route.

Your stay will be at Schoone Oordt deluxe Guest Retreat 5*, one of Swellendam's largest historic estates, in a luxury suite on a b & b basis.

Today you will leave Schoone Oordt and your journey on the Garden Route will continue as you work you way to the stunning coastal town of Plettenberg Bay

Here you will stay at the wonderful Emily Moon River Lodge 4* for 3 nights in a double suite on a b & b basis.

Check in and relax with a glass of wine on your own private verandah overlooking the Bitou River wetlands and later dine in their excellent restaurant - Emilys - where booking is advisable!

Use your time to explore and discover everything that the Plettenberg area can offer, including riding elephants at The Crags Elephant Sanctuary, visiting Monkeyland and The World of Birds, taking an Ocean Safari or kayacking and for those who like adventure, jump from the highest bungee jump in the world at the nearby Bloukraans Bridge.

Today you will depart from Emily Moon and self drive to the Eastern Cape via Port Elizabeth to the luxury 5* Kareiga River Lodge.

You will stay at the Lodge on a fully inclusive basis (all meals, all drinks and game activities)for 2 nights.

At Kariega leave your car and be driven to the lodge where you will enjoy a leisurely lunch sitting maybe on the deck overlooking the river.
After lunch check into your spacious luxury thatched suite and relax before your high tea and evening game drive

After your exciting first drive, return to the lodge for a wonderful dinner and chance to swop stories on your sightings with your fellow guests!

During your 2 day stay you will have 4 game activities that will include (weather permitting) exciting river boat safaris.
