'After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb'
Through the Heart of South Africa’s History and Natural Wonders
Home to Zulu culture, South Africa’s major mountain range the Drakensberg, inviting hotels along the Indian Ocean and some wonderful Big 5 game reserves, KwaZulu-Natal offers the authentic feel of Southern Africa. Visit the famous battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu wars, where an expert historian guide will bring the stories of the battles to life. Combined with three nights in style at Cathedral Peak Mountain Resort, and a 'Big Five' safari as well as time on the coast, this circular drive will leave a lasting impression of the variety of the Rainbow Nation.
Perfect for a first time visit to South Africa, or for those wanting to experience further the delights of the Cape and one of the world’s most welcoming and dynamic cities. Cape Town has a distinctive Mediterranean flavour mixed with African traditions and is one of the great gastronomic cities of the world, with amazing prices. Stay in the beautiful winelands in a charming hotel and take a drive down the garden route visiting ostrich farms, wild national parks and welcoming harbour towns. Enhance your African adventure with a few nights on safari on the Cape, in Kruger or Madikwe at your choice of lodge to see Africa’s Big Five wildlife and more.
Please note: this itinerary can easily be taken vice versa, starting on the Garden Route and finishing in Cape Town
The Masai Mara in Kenya is world-renowned for good reason. It conjures up images of vast plains packed with diverse wildlife, and the Masai warrior culture. It also plays host to one of the greatest wonders of the world – the great migration, where millions of animals cross the Serengeti Plains. If travelling in season, witness this first-hand with game drives from your intimate tented camp. Kandili sits right next to the action with sweeping views and true African hospitality.
After taking in the splendour of the Masai Mara, head east to the beautiful Diani Beach. The white sands and turquoise waters provide a stark contrast to the savannah wilderness.
