Tour Overview

Discover one of the world’s seven wonders as you enjoy a spectacular sunset over Cape Town, the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range and the Atlantic Ocean—seen from up high on Table Mountain. Explore Cape Town your way with the choice of joining your Travel Concierge for a sojourn around The Old Biscuit Mill—a vibrant artisan and culinary market, or a visit to the District Six Museum—a memorial dedicated to the 60,000 inhabitants forced to relocate after Apartheid destroyed the area. After visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site and former prison of Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, meet ex-prison guard Christo Brand for lunch at the Amy Foundation to hear fascinating stories about one of history’s most inspirational figures. In Kruger National Park, adventure out on a private open-air safari in search of the Big Five. Led by professional trackers, this once in a lifetime experience unfolds the largest game reserve in South Africa. At Boschendal Wine Estate, enjoy a farm to table lunch of locally sourced foods, harvested from the Werf Food Garden and cooked to perfection by Chef Allistaire Lawrence.

Majesty of the Rockies

21-Jun-2023

The itinerary was fantastic, starting in Banff at the beautiful Fairmont hotel, it set the scene for the next week. As we travelled in the coach surrounded by magnificent snow topped mountains, everyone getting excited when a black bear or elk was spotted! Standing on the glacier with the Columbian Ice Fields above , was magical. Then, on board the Rocky Mountaineer from Kamloops back to Vancouver, was very relaxing. Finishing our trip at the beautiful Douglas hotel was a lovely way to end what was a most memorable trip. Thank you *Personal Information removed by Feefo* and Luxury Gold. Will go home with fantastic memories of a very special part of the world
