OVERVIEW

This itinerary has been pared down to just two accommodations but with no reduction in the variety they offer in two of South Africa’s most sought-after destinations. Both have been chosen not only for their exquisite attention to detail, beautiful interiors and glorious landscapes but also for their highly personalised service. This affords you a seamless vacation that will flow smoothly at an unhurried pace.

Your first stop is Cape Town where you can ease into your holiday at Ellerman House. Situated in behind a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gate, its modest entrance belies the entrancing views of the Atlantic. Next, settle into Lebombo Lodge in Singita’s stunning Kruger concession. Waves and wildlife, city and safari – this is an unbeatable combination.

THIS ITINERARY WAS DESIGNED BY ANGELA

It’s true that SA is very diverse: you can go from the Winelands to Big 5 bush in just a short flight. I love more unusual spots like De Hoop, Phinda and Tswalu where you can enjoy nature without the crowds as well as vibrant cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg that are filled with culture and history.

DAILY ITINERARY

Once you emerge into the airport, the discreet pampering begins. Your driver will take you to Ellerman House, one of Cape Town’s most highly regarded boutique hotels with a reputation for hosting global celebrities. Once there, you’ll be ushered to your home from home for the next four nights.

Cape Town offers a plethora of experiences, from mesmerising art galleries and superb wineries, to fine-dining restaurants and adrenaline experiences. At the end of the day, Ellerman is waiting to welcome you back.

Why we love Ellerman House:

  • Private gallery of modern South African art
  • Exceptional temperature-controlled cellar
  • Two private villas for extra discretion
  • 270-degree views over the ocean

Your driver ensures you make your flight to Johannesburg today, from where you fly via light aircraft into Satara Airstrip and your first glimpse of the Kruger National Park. The drive to Lebombo – one of the finest lodges in the whole area – gives you a taste of what’s to come…

Inspired by eagles’ nests, Lebombo has an organic design that strives to be in tune with nature. Game drives and nature walks reveal the Big 5 with strict limits on vehicles at sightings.

Why we love Lebombo Lodge:

  • River views from its cliffside eyrie
  • Every room has a private starbed
  • In the heart of true Big 5 country
  • Spa, boutique, gym and wine tasting

For four days you’ve lived and breathed the rhythms of bush; now it’s time to recalibrate to the beat of the city. A short hop delivers you back to OR Tambo International Airport where your driver will transport you to AtholPlace House and Villa.

As expected, staff deliver outstanding service to ensure the tail-end of your South African sojourn is as perfect as possible. Johannesburg gives you a breather before your long-haul flight as well as shopping and spa treatments.

Why we love AtholPlace House and Villa:

  • Set in one of Johannesburg’s most manicured enclaves
  • Excellent proximity to shopping and dining
  • Flexibility around mealtimes and schedules
  • Heated swimming pools for perfect comfort

Time is the greatest luxury and being able to unpack your bags, truly settle in and get to know the staff is an increasing rarity in a fast-paced world. This itinerary idea shows the value of moving less to experience more.

Cape Town’s relaxed liveliness is the perfect foil to Kruger’s truly unhurried pace, where animals live as they always have. In both, experience understated glamour where quality is far more important than quantity.
