South Africa: Luxury Safari and Cape Town Package

Explore South Africa in luxurious style. Enjoy private, tailor-made tours of Cape Town and the Cape Winelands, plus a 5-star safari in Kruger National Park.

We designed this South Africa: Luxury Safari and Cape Town Package for an anniversary couple from Houston. For this special trip, they wanted a high-end South Africa experience with an all inclusive safari lodge and private touring in Cape Town. We sent them to Dulini Leadwood, an ultra-luxurious and exclusive lodge in the renowned Sabi Sands reserve.

They started their South Africa: Luxury Safari and Cape Town Package in beautiful and cosmopolitan Cape Town. They stayed at the fabulous Dock House Hotel & Spa, ideally located on the fashionable V&A Waterfront. The next day, they had a private tour of Cape Town and surrounds, where they had a tailor-made itinerary just for them. They saw penguins at Boulders Beach, saw the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood, and went mountain biking on Table Mountain. They also had a private wine tasting tour in the Cape Winelands, visiting 3 famed wine estates in South Africa’s culinary hub.

Next for their South Africa: Luxury Safari and Cape Town Package, they flew to the famed Sabi Sands region of Kruger National Park. They had an incredible experience at Dulini Leadwood, one of South Africa’s top luxury lodges. Leadwood features just 4 luxurious, modern, and spacious suites, each with its own private verandah and plunge pool. Game drives are led by expert trackers and guides, who truly bring the drama of the African bush to life as they track down wildlife like lions, elephants, and Sabi Sands’ abundant leopards.

They had 4 magical nights at Dulini and saw all of the Big 5! They also enjoyed a walking safari to get a more intimate safari experience and learn about the smaller animals of the savannah. They were treated to delectable cuisine and premium drinks, all included in their room rate, and the staff made them feel right at home. They were certainly sad to say goodbye!
