For a true South African experience how could we not start in Cape Town, where stunning scenery meets hip beaches and a rising urban artsy scene to rival that of New York, London and Paris. On touch down in Africa’s hub of diversity you will be whisked off to the stylish Ellerman House. What makes Ellerman House unique is the owners’ stunning collection of artwork used to individually decorate each of the eleven rooms.
You will stay in the most spectacular part of Cape Town’s premier suburb; Bantry Bay, where you will be in the perfect position to pack your days with outings to the famous Clifton Beach, the excitement of central Cape Town, the majestic Table Mountain, stunning golf courses and the bustling Victoria & Alfred waterfront. And if that’s not enough, we can organise a scenic drive to the very heart of South Africa’s world class wine lands just 45 minutes away.
Go Walkabout in the Wild
After a few packed days exploring the hustle and bustle of Cape Town you’ll head straight into Africa’s wildlife. Flying into Nelspruit you will have an aerial view of Africa’s expansive lands giving you a taster of what you are set to see over the upcoming days.
Your stay at the Singita Lebombo Lodge in the Kruger National Park will immerse you in Africa’s true wildside. Here you will enjoy a panoramic view across the park from your private deck, which can also second as a bedroom if you fancy a night sleeping under the stars – who could say no? Your luxury suite is elevated over the wildlife below with floor to ceiling glass fronts giving you the option to live how you like, dine indoors or out watching the theatre of the African bush unfold before your eyes.
Your days will be filled with adventure as the experts lead you on open Land Rover game tours getting you up close and personal with some of the biggest beasts on earth; lions, leopards, rhino, buffalo and elephants. Unwind from your adventure filled days in Singita Lebombo’s dedicated spa where you are promised to be pampered beyond anything you have experienced before.
And the big finale: Castaway in Seychelles
After a week of adventure exploring Africa’s true treasures with our expert guides it’s time for some full rest and relaxation for which the North Island, Seychelles could not be a more perfect place. The epitome of ‘barefoot luxury’ – the island truly takes your breath away in castaway heaven.
Flown in by helicopter the luxury treatment doesn’t stop here. North Island is a unique private island with only 11 hand crafted guest villas leading out to powdery beaches. The Island Piazza is the focal point, here is the perfect place to chill, sunken lounges offer 360 degree views of the bay so lie back and take in the scenery. Or if true peace and quiet is what you’re looking for then hide away on honeymoon beach as our royals did, its name originates from its position hidden away in a private curve into the rock. And finish the day at West Beach bar sipping exotic drinks while watching the sunset in the most magnificent location.
From the beach to your private villa, this is a truly ‘royal’ experience to neatly round off a unique experience taking in the very best of African safari and island indulgence.
