DELRAY BEACH, FL, March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cape Town is widely regarded as one of the world's ultimate cities to visit, live, eat and play. The quintessential melting pot of creativity, taste and color, it vibrates with natural beauty and unexpected experiences. Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, National Geographic and CNN have awarded Cape Town with a surplus of accolades throughout the years, and the New York Times recently recognized South Africa's "Mother City" as the #1 place to visit in 2014.
Cape Town's proximity to the Cape Winelands, Kruger National Park and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve (as well as the Atlantic and Indian Oceans) ensures that potential activities are limited only by the imagination. African Travel, Inc. offers seven popular safaris that intimately explore the grandeur of Cape Town from its picturesque landscapes to its vibrantly diverse cuisine, compelling history, and unrivaled game viewing. Each unforgettable journey captures the spirit and authenticity of Africa while discovering the top city on this year's bucket list.
Embark on a provocative journey through South Africa's turbulent past "In the Footsteps of Mandela." As the country's first black President, Nelson Mandela gained international acclaim for his activism and is often described as the father of the nation. Learn the heritage and history of both South Africa and Mandela during a multitude of guided excursions, a collection of soulful encounters with the people and places relevant to his efforts to end apartheid. Conclude the safari with three days in the Karongwe Private Game Reserve, tracking the "Big Five" as well as hippo, antelope, zebra and giraffe.
"The Ultimate Safari" provides a premiere sojourn throughout South Africa, Zambia, Namibia and Botswana and includes the most luxurious accommodations and gold medal service. From the world heritage treasures of the "Fairest Cape" and Victoria Falls to the unmatched wildlife viewing in Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, this kaleidoscope of adventures delivers the absolute finest safari experience including five exquisite days in Cape Town.
Multi-generational travelers delight in the "Wild and Wondrous Family Adventure," meticulously designed for both the young and young-at-heart. Giggle at the penguin's waddling antics on the Cape Peninsula, watch in wonder as whales perform well-practiced belly-flops at Plettenberg Bay, and get up close and personal with a plethora of protected wildlife. World-travelers of all ages enjoy a fascinating history lesson about Cape Town's early South African settlers, and the adults salivate during a South Africa wine cellar tour.
