SOUTHERN AFRICA: From Sea To Safari
Cape Town & The Winelands To The Great African Game Reserves

April 22 – 30

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Southern Africa is home to BOTH Cape Town, regularly acclaimed as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and some of our planet’s most breath-taking wildlife viewing! Our trip is a cross-section of the region's abundance – from Cape Town, the "mother city," dramatically nestled between mountains and sea, whose beauty and rich culture is palpable, to the Winelands – a combination of historic architecture, vineyard-clad mountains and fantastic wines – to the great African game reserves..

CAPE TOWN & THE WINELANDS This fabulous city and the countryside surrounding it are “drop dead’ beautiful!  With a stunning oceanfront, prize-winning vineyards, heritage architecture, great restaurants and flourishing arts – this diverse city is thrilling. We'll explore both the urban richness and gorgeous natural setting of the city from the Winelands in one direction to the Cape of Good Hope in the other! En route we'll meet some of the people involved in the Cape's renaissance since the ‘90’s, including the burgeoning indigenous and contemporary arts scene…from the amazing folks at Streetwires to an important collector of South African Art...all capped by culinary delights. Lodging in Cape Town at a boutique hotel near the slopes of Table Mountain. Lodging in the Winelands at Babylonstoren – a fabulous 1700’s farm estate with organic gardens, a gourmet restaurant and unique cottages blending history and contemporary design.

OUR SAFARI LODGE "Mother Nature" is at its most spectacular and elemental in Southern Africa. We have chosen a spectacular camp – Tanda Tula Lodge – nestled in the bushveld, yet luxurious by any standard and…most of all…perfect to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness. The lodge is in Timbavati private reserve, one of South Africa and Kruger’s most famous, game-rich regions where the “big 5” abound (elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros and buffalo). Game drives are in open-topped and elevated Land Rovers with a guide and tracker – a spectacular way to view and learn about the wild-life and ecosystems and...bringing us regularly within spitting distance of the animals (imagine the roar of a lion a few feet away, a family of elephants in the distance and stunning birds overhead)! Even the novice photographer's nirvana!
