This trip includes the iconic city of Cape Town, the stunning Winelands, and the wildlife-rich Sabi Sand Game Reserve! We use small and intimate safari camps, and altogether this is an ideal option for travellers seeking a broad range of experiences.

Your adventure begins at MannaBay. This is one of Cape Town’s trendiest boutique hotels, and it boasts breathtaking views over the city. Next up, you’ll travel to The Winelands for a couple of nights at The Last Word Franschhoek, a quaint little guesthouse within easy reach of the town’s shops, restaurants, galleries, and more! Finally you’ll head to the northern region of the Sabi Sands, to Chitwa Chitwa. The most luxurious lodge in the area, this property has a lovely location on the edge of a large lake, as well as a homely atmosphere.

During your stay at MannaBay, you’ll be perfectly positioned to explore the Mother City’s most popular attractions. There’s even a private gate leading directly into Table Mountain National Park! The Last Word is also very conveniently located within its Winelands setting – if you wish, you can venture out of Franschhoek to do a little hiking and biking too. And Chitwa Chitwa offers vehicle and walking safaris, photographic safaris, and village tours.
