January 4 - 17, 2016

When asked about his impression of South Africa, former American President Bill Clinton replied, "South Africa isn't just beautiful, it is achingly beautiful" and this two-week journey might well have been designed to give form to his words.

Known as the Mother City, and nestling in the shadow of the spectacular Table Mountain, Cape Town's breathtaking scenery could not be more stunning. But it is also an exciting cultural city with a fascinating history and your stay here will give you plenty of time to appreciate all its charms.

Two of South Africa's greatest natural attractions feature in this itinerary: the botanical marvels of the Garden Route and the magnificent African wildlife. Your journey along the Garden Route into the Outeniqua Mountains starts from the picturesque small harbour town of Mossel Bay, and your safari adventures take you to three of South Africa’s best game parks with an opportunity to get up close to Africa’s iconic wildlife. There is also time to call at the vibrant city of Durban with its memorable Botanical Gardens and famous orchid house, as well as bustling craft market.
