This South Africa Vacation was planned for a couple from Chicago celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. They wanted to experience the best of South African city life, so we sent them to 3 major cosmopolitan centers: Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg.
Their South Africa Vacation began in Cape Town, known to locals as “The Mother City.” They spent 4 nights at the stylish, luxurious Table Bay Hotel on the fashionable V&A Waterfront. They spent the evening exploring the waterfront’s many interesting shops and enjoyed a gourmet South African meal at a nearby restaurant before retreating to their fabulous room. Over the next 3 days, they explored Cape Town at their leisure. As a more adventurous couple, they hiked up Table Mountain and went cage diving with Great White Sharks. They also took a day trip to the Cape Winelands to indulge in the very best of South African food and wine.
Next on their South Africa Vacation, they flew to Durban and enjoyed some rest and recreation at Umhlanga Rocks, the KwaZulu-Natal holiday destination of choice for many locals. They stayed 4 nights at the elegant Beverly Hills Hotel with unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean. During their stay, they enjoyed fun and relaxation on the beach, visited the fascinating city of Durban, and spent a day hiking in the absolutely stunning Valley of 1,000 Hills.
Next, their South Africa Vacation took them to Johannesburg, where they visited some of the best shopping malls, restaurants, and attractions in the city. They stayed 3 nights at Four Seasons Westcliff Hotel, which offers panoramic views across the Johannesburg Zoo and the lovely, lush northern suburbs. They had easy access to downtown Johannesburg and all its world-class attractions. They spent their days exploring South Africa’s largest city, and also took a trip to the nearby Cradle of Humankind. This system of caves was the discovery site of several key humanoid fossils and offers an awe-inspiring glimpse of humanity’s past.
After exploring South Africa’s most exciting cities, their South Africa Vacation came to an end. They headed to the airport, where they caught their flight home.
