Cape Town

Cape Town, nicknamed the Mother City, is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world offering an all-in-one adventure with beautiful beaches, breath-taking landscapes, award-winning wineries and mouth-watering cuisine. Here you’ll also find the renowned Table Mountain, one of the newly proclaimed natural wonders of the world.

Cape Winelands

The Cape Winelands of the Western Cape are one of the big draw cards to South Africa that manage to effortlessly combine the beauty of ripening vineyards, Cape Dutch manor homes and excellent cuisine (and of course award-winning wine) in valleys surrounded by indigo mountains. The towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are within easy reach of Cape Town and are some of the oldest towns in the country with a rich history and culture.

Kruger National Park

The world-renowned Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa and is definitely one of the must-visit destinations in South Africa. This is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, offering magical unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. This is the land of baobabs, fever trees, knob thorns, marula and mopane trees underneath which lurk the Big Five, and more species of mammals and birds than any other African Game Reserve.

Manyeleti Private Game Reserve

Expect a pristine bush experience in one of the world's most beautiful places. This private game reserve borders directly to the vast Kruger National Park, as well as the famous Sabi Sands and Timbavati Game Reserves. As such, you can be sure to only experience the best game viewing possible. As there are no fences between the national park and the private game reserves, wildlife is able to roam freely. Manyeleti is prime “Big Five” territory, offering good possibilities for viewing the elusive leopard. Other Big Five animals (lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant) are also spotted on a very regular basis. Furthermore, with more than 300 bird species present in the area, Manyeleti makes a great safari destination for wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and bird watchers alike.
