South Africa Getaway with Luxury Blue Train Journey
A superb South Africa journey covering Cape Town, the Winelands, a luxury train journey and an eco safari stay – includes game drives, all travel and more
You’ll start your South Africa holiday with four nights in Cape Town, at The Onyx hotel. Crowned by the flat-topped beauty that is Table Mountain (and smaller sibling Lion’s Head), Cape Town is more than just a pretty face: its creative soul shines through in a rich arts and culture scene, a jam-packed festival calendar and an innovative culinary landscape.
Then, you’ll head into the Winelands for a three-night stay at River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa, which sits pretty on the banks of the Eerste River edging the oak-lined town of Stellenbosch. What else would you do in the Cape Winelands, other than take a wine tour or enjoy a tasting session at one of the area's famed wine estates? With a complimentary wine-tasting experience included here, you can grab the chance to unwind in flavoursome style.
Next, you’ll be travelling in style aboard the Blue Train – one of the world's most luxurious trains, as you journey from Cape Town to Pretoria. With its fine dining, first-class service and wood-panelled interior, the 1,600-kilometre journey to the Jacaranda City will fly by. Underfloor heating, deluxe air-conditioned suites and an attentive butler service are some of the highlights on board as you take in the impressive dramatic scenery.
Finally, close your trip in the beautiful surrounds of the Savannah plains with three nights at Ekuthuleni Lodge, situated within the Welgevonden Game Reserve. With sunrise and sundown game drives conducted by experienced rangers, you'll venture out into magnificent landscapes to spot the elusive Big Five roaming freely in their natural habitat. With your own private open-air bathroom, cool off from the day's heat with a refreshing outdoor shower and enjoy some delicious dining on an open-air deck.
