(Optional) After golf we suggest you visit The Cape Point Nature Reserve, a declared Natural World Heritage Site that boasts 7750 hectares of varied species of flora and fauna. With over 250 species of birds, this special spot is a nature lover’s paradise. The Cape of Good Hope is also situated in the reserve – it’s easily spotted by the 238m high lighthouse that towers above the waves. You can access this historical building by way of an exhilarating 3-minute ride in the ‘Flying Dutchman’ funicular that carries visitors from the lower station at 127m above sea-level, to the upper station.
With so much on offer, you’ll want to have your camera ready to capture all the beautiful and historic sites held in this protected space.

Helpful hint: don’t forget to stop at the natural penguin colony at Boulders Beach on your return and remember not to feed the cheeky baboons you may meet along the way.

Day 3 – Golf at Steenberg Golf Club

Helpful hint: We know it’s hard to pry yourself from the bustling streets and corner cafes of the Mother City, but we suggest heading up Table Mountain, via cable car, the first chance you get. The weather dictates the pace for this excursion, and the weather in Cape Town can be unpredictable, so to avoid disappointment, we suggest you head for the ‘table top’ as soon as mother nature gives you the ‘all clear’.

Cape Cadogan

Tucked away in a cosy lane off Cape Town’s famous Kloof Street. The double-storey Georgian and Victorian building dates back to the beginning of the 19th century and is styled after Oscar Wilde’s bohemian lifestyle.

Bohemian-chic is the hallmark of the Cape Cadogan – the 15 Luxurious en suite Rooms are decorated with an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique furniture, using plush fabrics to maximum effect. The hotel’s comfortable lounge has a roaring open fireplace, relaxing gardens, a pool area for when the heat is on and a library to immerse yourself in. Breakfast, served in the elegant dining room, comes with a view of the pool and garden.

Kloof Street is one of Cape Town’s most fashionable streets and certainly one of the best for browsing. Antique dealers, second hand booksellers, pan-African markets and funky vintage clothing stores lie side by side with cool cafes, high street-style boutiques and chic décor shops and galleries. Sublime restaurants on your doorstep and further afield will add welcome gastronomic interludes to your wanderings.

Tomjachu

This intimate private bush lodge, just 20 minutes from Nelspruit, overlooking Kruger’s distant southern boundary. Set in 850 ha of bushveld within the Crocodile River Mountain Conservancy, walk amongst zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and kudu and enjoy havens, lakes and lapas on the estate.

Tomjachu offers a unique experience of flora and fauna in an atmosphere of relaxation, seclusion and tranquility. Stay in the homely comfort of the safari-style Homestead on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Or in one of three quaint self-catering cottages, each with its own unique character and romantic ambience. Two have private plunge pools.

Valbonne House offers the luxury of an exclusive 6-bedroom villa in an eclectic modern colonial style. Deep verandah perfect for lazing and entertaining, with rim-flow pool below and magnificent elevated views.

Idyllic days are spent on nature drives, hiking, mountain biking and bass fishing. More leisurely pursuits include croquet, boules or simply relaxing on the patio listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species.

Lion Sands River Lodge

Whilst there are a huge number of game lodges that are positioned on river banks, the vast majority of them look out over “sand rivers”, small perennial rivers that only flow at times of heavy rain. That’s what makes Lion Sands River Lodge so special as it looks out over the majestic Sabie River, one of the few rivers flowing through the greater Kruger Park area which has water all year round. To us there’s little that can better the wonderfully relaxing sight of flowing water which always seems to have a hugely therapeutic effect on the soul! Of course it’s also a huge attraction to the animals which are attracted by the sweet waters and which tend to congregate around this reliable water source, particularly in the drier winter months when much of the surface water in the bush dries up – the result is that game viewing is consistently excellent all year round!

Steenberg Golf Club

Can be found nestled under the Constantia mountains in the quaint Constantia valley – this beautiful course meanders through the vineyards of South Africa’s oldest wine farm dating back to the days of Simon van der Stel. The course has an admired reputation for boasting the best greens in Cape Town and plays off no less than five different tees; ensuring that the course can be enjoyed by all levels of player. The setting contributes hugely to the attractiveness of the course; providing magnificent views of the vineyards, surrounding fynbos and majestic mountains.

Royal Cape Golf Club

Over more than 100 years the golf course at Royal Cape has evolved into what it is today, a classic parkland course that provides a fine test of golf as well as a wonderful playing experience. The course is in superb year round condition with well grassed fairways, smooth greens and challenging bunkers.

Although the course is on flat terrain, the playing of Royal Cape is subject to three of nature’s beguiling offerings: a near constant wind to challenge you, sweeping mountain views to charm you and water features to ensnare you.

Royal Cape is without doubt one of the best and most challenging courses to play both in the Western Cape and the country. It is a course of championship stature, playing to a par of 72, which has hosted the SA Open ten times as well as many other professional and top amateur events. Winners at Royal Cape include Gary Player, Ernie Els, Mark McNulty and Trevor Immelman.

Tree lined with narrow fairways and subtle USGA spec built greens, Royal presents a traditional test of golf, although the numerous ponds and lakes teeming with bird life provide beauty and distraction along the way.

Clovelly Country Club

With a reputation founded on the warmth of its character, its outstanding facilities, and steps taken to ensure a true reflection of its motto: “Fraternitas Ludorum” (Brotherhood in the Game), it’s no wonder Clovelly Country Club features on most golfer’s ‘must-play’ list. Ranking as one of the finest and most picturesque and challenging courses in South Africa; it’s a fine blend of testing holes with the Silvermine River and adjacent pools adding to the ambience.

Leopard Creek

The Golf Course is founded on the values of friendship, a common love of the game of golf and a shared reverence for nature. Drawing from the intricate wealth of nature, Leopard Creek Golf Course is an unobtrusive part of that environment – Working closely with the Kruger National Park and nature conservation authorities, the Leopard Creek Golf Course was specifically designed to blend in with the surroundings, providing sophisticated leisure amenities in an undisturbed natural environment. Innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the golf course is in harmony with the environment, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies. Sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, buffalo and wild boar are commonplace, either on the course itself or in or next to the river running alongside several holes. Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek for much of the water is home to hippos and the creature for which the adjacent river is named – crocodile. To single out a signature hole is brave as there are some memorable holes. Not for the faint-hearted, the par five 18th is not particularly long at 475m but the island green presents a tricky shot over water. The 13th is equally dramatic, with the green ‘floating’ above the Crocodile River which divides the course from the Kruger National Park. A creek first splits the fairway and then runs alongside the left hand side of the hole. The green is built out over the river, which runs underneath. Perfect Climate Malelane, with its temperate climate, offers year-round attractions – comfort, convenience and informal elegance. The winter season is an especially enjoyable time in Malelane with easy game-viewing and bird-watching, and off course – ideal weather for golf!.
