Curated for the discerning bush and beach lover, this 13-day South Africa and Mozambique Safari & Sea LuxVenture® kicks off in the bustling, colorful city of Cape Town, which needs no introduction and ranks among the most beautiful cities in the world. Expect relaxation in the breathtaking Cape Winelands between the picturesque mountains of Paarl and Franschhoek before embarking on a thrilling safari adventure to the world-famous, game-rich Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. This unique Southern African trip culminates in a seaside getaway to the stunning coastline of Vilanculos in Mozambique, where palm-lined beaches and azure waters steal the show. Both destinations can be visited year round.
South Africa and Mozambique Safari & Sea LuxVenture® begins on arrival at Cape Town International Airport. A Ker & Downey® Africa representative will welcome you to the city with a VIP meet and greet and transfer you to the Dock House Boutique Hotel in the heart of the renowned Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. During your stay, you can expect exclusive accommodation and personalized butler-style service in a luxurious, world class setting. The Mother City is yours to explore and, on day 3, we have arranged a magnificent private guided full day Cape Peninsula and Cape Point Tour, where an expert guide will educate you on the breathtaking scenery of this pristine coastal region. Take in the views of a World Heritage Site and the history and even indulge in some gift shopping along the way.
The Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa is a historical gem in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. From the manicured gardens around the outdoor pool and bar area to the well-appointed interior, which offers five luxury rooms and a luxury suite, understated grace meets contemporary glamor. Enjoy in-house spa treatments and in-room dining.
Your stay at the Dock House Boutique Hotel is entirely what you make of it. An immaculate pool offers you the opportunity to cool off on hot days. The bar invites you to relax and take in the gorgeous view of Table Mountain and the sanctuary signature spa is the perfect place to unwind after exploring the Mother City, offering an array of supreme wellness treatments.
After a delicious breakfast with a backdrop of Table Mountain, your driver will meet and transfer you to Angala Boutique Hotel in the Cape Winelands. Angala, a scenic 40 minutes drive from Cape Town, is nestled between the scenic mountains of Paarl and Franschhoek and is where comfort melds with unspoiled beauty. Angala is a family-run hotel, and all design choices and management decisions are made as if it were their own personal house. All of the accommodation décor and amenities were personally chosen and crafted by the owners, and the day to day running of the hotel is done by the family. After settling in, you can explore world-class hiking trails, on foot or by bicycle, all within 12.4 miles of the property, or enjoy a range of invigorating spa treatments from experienced therapists in the comfort of your room. We recommend spoiling yourself with a private yoga session at their in-house wellness facility.
Angala blends with the natural environment seamlessly to provide a really magical and peaceful experience that will help you achieve that much-needed disconnect. There are 11 luxurious rooms. On cold winter nights relax by the cozy fireplace. Soak away your stress in the self-contained eco-pool or simply unwind in the heated spa pool, steam room and sauna.
There are a number of activities to enjoy during your stay at Angala Boutique Hotel. Feast on fresh, local ingredients from the menu at the on-site restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Explore the Winelands and some of South Africa’s top wine farms all within 5km of your room or have a wine tasting at Vrede en Lust Wine Estate – the home of Angala.
Wake up to a hearty breakfast at the in-house restaurant on your final morning in your Winelands oasis. Your driver will meet and accompany you to Cape Town International Airport for your scheduled flight to Eastgate Airport, situated in the safari gateway of Hoedspruit. From here, a Ker & Downey® Africa representative will welcome you with a smile and transfer you to the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger area. You will be staying at the majestic Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge, a stylishly intimate game lodge nestled in the heart of unspoilt bushveld. Daily 4×4 game drives in search of Africa’s fabled Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo – as well as guided bush walks with an armed guide and tracker is how you’ll spend your time at Chitwa Chitwa. After game drives, enjoy a beverage and share stories of the day on the sunset deck shaded by old Knobthorn trees – the perfect place to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of Africa.
Chitwa Chitwa takes pride in its location along the shores of one of the largest dams in the reserve, frequented by an abundance of wildlife. Six spacious suites and the immaculately appointed Charlsy suite feature a private plunge pool surrounded by a large wooden terrace with views of the dam. The main area houses a gym, spa, bar, boutique, wine cellar and library.
Your time at Chitwa Chitwa can be spent searching for wildlife on twice-daily game drives, as well as guided bush walks in the company of an experienced guide and tracker team who will enrich your safari experience with their profound knowledge of the area and its inhabitants. Back at the lodge, indulge in a massage at the on-site spa or explore the riches of the exclusive wine cellar and retire to the privacy of the cozy library.
Following a revitalizing breakfast with views of the African bushveld, your driver will transfer you for a short 30 minutes drive to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in preparation for your direct flight to Vilanculos, Mozambique. The flight is 1 hour 10 minutes long. It is here that your beach vacation begins! Upon arrival in Vilanculos, a Ker & Downey® Africa representative will assist you with your 20 minute road transfer to your beach accommodation, Santorini Mozambique. Santorini is situated above the cliffs of Kingfisher Bay, boasting incredible vistas of the archipelago and surrounding islands. After checking in, take the time to absorb the commanding panoramic bay views from the hotel’s private and elevated position. Your time at Santorini can be spent soaking up the very best that a beach getaway can offer from scuba diving and horseback safaris to kite surfing and scenic helicopter flights over the exquisite ocean surroundings.
Originally created as a boutique villa, Santorini is like a tiny Greek village in the middle of a coastal landscape that comes with all the facilities you would expect from a luxury resort. Stay in one of the spacious suites, or the villa for family and friends. A number of dining options are offered from courtyard dining to enjoying a meal around the pool.
Your Santorini beach experience can be as relaxed or active as you’d like. Spend a day out on the azure waters trying your hand at snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, sunset cruises or explore the vibrant markets and local curios of Vilanculos town. For a truly magical experience, we recommend chartering a boat to explore the surrounding islands.
Day thirteen marks the end of your South Africa and Mozambique Safari & Sea LuxVenture®. After a delicious breakfast enjoying the views of the azure ocean, you will be assisted on your return transfer to Vilanculos Airport for your scheduled flight to Johannesburg to connect with your flight home. You will feel both invigorated and relaxed, filled with unforgettable memories of your time spent in these two extraordinary Southern African destinations.
