This Luxury Cape Vacation was designed for a couple celebrating a golden birthday. They were interested in beautiful South African scenery and outdoor adventure, so we created this self-driving vacation package to take them to some of South Africa’s most picturesque regions.
They began their Luxury Cape Vacation in lovely Cape Town. They stayed at Twelve Apostles, a luxury hotel nestled in the mountains overlooking the city. On their first night in town, they enjoyed a scrumptious meal on their private deck with stunning sunset views. Then, for the next few days, they had plenty of free time to explore Cape Town and surrounds with the convenience of their rental car.
Next on their Luxury Cape Vacation, they took a scenic drive to Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel in the traditional fishing town of Paternoster. During their 2-night stay, they took an exciting, early morning sea kayaking trip to see the local penguin colony, explored the sights and delicious eats of Paternoster, and enjoyed a traditional South African braai (barbecue) on the beach just outside the hotel.
They continued their Luxury Cape Vacation with 3 nights at Bushmans Kloof, a luxurious and secluded wilderness lodge at the foot of the Cederberg Mountains. They enjoyed a wonderful dinner with a complimentary bottle of local wine, then took a nighttime game drive to see the elusive, nocturnal creatures surrounding the lodge. Over the next few days, they were able to explore the picturesque mountain setting on leisurely day hikes and a canoe excursion.
Their Luxury Cape Vacation continued with a drive to Grand Dédale country house in the western Winelands. They sampled delicious South African wine from the estate’s winery, toured the vineyards on foot, and biked around the beautiful mountain landscape.
Next on their luxury South Africa tour, they drove to Grootbos Forest Lodge for the final stop on their Luxury Cape Vacation. In this serene, coastal nature reserve, they were able to spot the Marine Big 5, including sharks and whales, take guided walks through valleys filled with colorful wildflowers, explore otherworldly forests, and relax on their private deck watching the diverse birds of the area.
After a 2 fabulous weeks immersing themselves in South Africa’s most gorgeous scenery, their Luxury Cape Vacation came to an end. They drove to the airport and began their trip home.
