This nine-day adventure showcases the breathtaking scenery and majestic wildlife of South Africa while supporting some of the region's most successful conservation initiatives, such as the Shamwari Game Reserve and Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.
Begin your journey in South Africa's "Mother City" of Cape Town, an unparalleled biodiversity hotspot home to a plethora of species unique to the area. Explore the sparkling beaches peppered along the Cape and savor the ultimate dining experience during a "Chef's table" lunch at The Flagship. Closer to culinary theatre than a simple meal, listen as Chef Duncan Doherty shares his passion for seafood as he serves locally and sustainably sourced dishes alongside his sense of humor and style.
Sample distinctive wines as you explore the region's glorious winelands before venturing to Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, renowned for its natural scenic beauty. This reserve prides itself on making an effective contribution to the Walker Bay region and its people, and your stay includes a guided Social Responsibility Tour where you will learn about the reserve's most innovative projects. Additional nature-based excursions include 4x4 flower safari drives, bird watching, cave tours, and beach visits - all accompanied by specialist guides such as botanists and nature conservationists.
Your adventure concludes with a three-night safari in the Shamwari Game Reserve. Stretching thousands of acres over a malaria-free landscape, this award-winning reserve is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa. During full days of game viewing activities, keep your eyes peeled for a multitude of different species including the coveted Big Five and kudu, zebra and wildebeest. Opportunities abound to visit the reserve's conservation projects as well, such as The Born Free Foundation, The Shamwari Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre.
