Luxury safaris are where South Africa excels. This amazing trip includes Cape Town as well as two epic big-game areas – the Timbavati and Sabi Sand – and seriously good safari camps that rival the sheer quality of the game-viewing experience.

Our luxury solo trip to South Africa comprises an exhilarating beginning in Cape Town, followed by a few days on safari in two exceptionally good game reserves. In the Mother City, you will stay on the world-renowned V&A Waterfront! Subsequently, you will enjoy game viewing of a very high standard within the Timbavati and Sabi Sands.

We use three amazingly luxurious properties – Cape Grace, Makanyi Private Game Lodge, and Londolozi Founders Camp. Cape Grace is a fabulous hotel on the V&A Waterfront, situated on its very own quay! Although it is close to all the V&A’s attractions, it is sufficiently tucked away to ensure you are at a distance from the crowds. Makanyi has a wonderful location in the Timbavati Game Reserve and provides plenty of safari activities to keep you entertained! No single supplement is payable here. And Londolozi Founders is one of just five camps in the Sabi Sands’ Londolozi Reserve. The wildlife viewing here is nothing short of phenomenal!
