South Africa is one of the most breath-taking countries in the world. Landscapes vary from tropical beaches to rugged mountains and bushveld, offering a unique diversity of experiences. Cape Town has become a coveted destination for its world-class restaurants, iconic wine farms, and majestic mountains. De Hoop is a nature-lovers paradise, a place to rest in silent exclusion. Plettenberg Bay boasts dense vegetation, a litany of adventure sports, and great beaches with warm water. Garonga Safari Camp is located in the private Makalali Nature Reserve, offering the privilege of seeing wildlife without the crowds typical of Kruger National Park.
There is so much to see in South Africa that the country warrants a visit of at least two weeks or more. If you only have a limited time, we created a highlighted ‘Classical’ style itinerary. We have curated a collection of the most stylish, intimate, and authentic lodges and villas in South Africa to create a bespoke experience normally reserved for locals “in the know.”
