What to do on a South Africa Luxury Safari ?
South Africa really has so much to offer, there are a thousand relaxing, exciting and fun things to do in this versatile country. The mother-city Cape Town must be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, it definitely has the most amazing skyline. From there you can travel north to the wine-lands that today produce absolute world-class wines and they can all be tasted for next to nothing. The garden route east of the city hasn’t stolen its name, it really is one amazing road passing the most picturesque and idyllic locations. And then there is the Kruger National Park and its bordering concessions full of wildlife and absolute amazing resorts. Combine all this with the great food and service quality that this country is known for and you have a real South Africa Luxury Safari. Sounds Good ? Contact us now!
This amazing city lies only a few kilometres north of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point where the Atlantic and Indian Ocean meet. On the way there, you even pass Boulders beach, where you can find a whole colony of African Penguins! Cape Town is probably most known for its prominent landmark: Table Mountain, the mountain forms a stunning backdrop that shapes the skyline of the city. If you like you can climb Table Mountain or for the less active, take the cableway and enjoy the view! Next to its beautiful surroundings, Cape Town has much more to offer! We have made a selection of the most unique design Boutique Hotels and some top of the range Classic Luxury Hotels, we also have the addresses of the city’s best restaurants, lounges and shops for you to indulge.
This almost 200 km-long route along the South-Coast has not stolen its name. Thanks to the year-out mild climate and the great diversity in vegetation, this is one of the most picturesque regions in the world. In its many beautiful bays and hidden corners, there are some many great activities to do but the one that stands out and that the area is most famous for is golf!
What better way to spend the day than wine-tasting. And South-Africa has some amazing wines. During your Safari and your stay in all the amazing lodges and hotels you will no doubt have some superb wines but there is so much on offer you could never consume them all. At only a few kilometres from Cape Town you will be blown away by the amazing landscapes and of course the great wines paired with some stunning food. We even know of a high end brandy distillery that is perfect to visit as a digestive after lunch. On a tour like this you probably shouldn’t be driving, so we could organise a helicopterride for you or even have you chauffeured in a vintage Rolls Royce.
Rovos Rail – Crossing South Africa in Historic Style
Traveling slow trains is a lesson in history and pre-war luxury, interspersed with surprising encounters. The exclusive Rovos Rail is the peacock under the train journeys and as fine as the Orient Express. Instead of crossing South Africa by road on the long roads or using a connecting flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town, we suggest you opt for this unique experience. Sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery floating past. With top level service and stunning cuisine this type of traveling is exactly what you need on a luxury South Africa safari.
Kruger National Park
The mother of all national parks in Africa, it is one of the oldest and biggest you can find. Thanks to that it is today also a home to large groups of almost any species you can find in southern Africa. Close to two thousand plant sorts, more than a hundred different mammal species and well over five hundred different type of birds live here. Over the years the Kruger Park has been filled with top quality accommodation and due to this strong competition, the experience of luxury bush service is of the highest level you will find the world.
Sabie Sands Game Reserve
At Atelier Africa this is probably our favourite corner of Kruger National Park and also home to probably the best accommodation you can find if it comes to style and luxury.
Singita Sweni Lodge
A safari can, like all other types of travel, range from budget to super-luxurious. From basic tents to dazzling colonial lodges created by hip designers. Singita Sweni Lodge is without error part of the summit. When the architects designed the lodges, they had one mission: create a ultratop all-in concept.
Buried in the ground, is a spectacular wine cellar with 15,000 bottles of the best that the world – and especially the Cape – has to offer. Singita Sweni is an oasis with only six suites where the privacy of the guests enjoy absolute priority. Zen is the magic word. We only know a few hotels that are as amazing.
All rooms are overlooking the river surrounded by seven hundred year old trees. The architecture is at the least surprising and refined. And has nothing to do with the glorified camping tents that formerly constituted the service in these parts of Africa.
This hotel is a response to the latest safari trend. Years ago only the wildlife experience was important on a safari. The accommodation and meals were secondary. Like the practical amenities, if you wanted to go to the toilet, you had to just go to the nearest tree. That is changed. Singita Sweni offers very high end refined cuisine, combined with some of the best wildlife reserves South Africa has to offer.
Ulusaba Private Game Reserve.
Set in the Sabi Sands Park this Private Reserve that belongs to Sir. Richard Branson offers top quality accommodation and service! Some of the unique room designs make this place perfect for a honeymoon or just a well deserved self-spoiling getaway.
