Itinerary

Day 1 - 3CAPE TOWN | OVERNIGHT AT THE TWELVE APOSTLES HOTEL AND SPA

2 nights at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in a luxury room on a bed and breakfast basis. The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world.

On one side, a line of majestic mountains – The Twelve Apostles – reaches towards the heavens; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park. We’ll even pack you a picnic. And yet this luxury 5-star boutique hotel is just a few minutes from worldly, cosmopolitan Cape Town. City-center theatres and art galleries, plus the shops and restaurants of the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are only 15 minutes away via our complimentary car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad.

Nearest of all is the elegant area of Camps Bay with its beautiful golden beaches. Or, if you prefer adventure to sun-soaked relaxation, we can arrange sea fishing, shark and scuba diving, or whale watching trips. Not only do we arrange personalised transfers and private touring experiences to some of the Cape’s hidden secrets, but are able to reserve your very own private cinema, ensuring you get to enjoy Dereck & Beverly Joubert’s wildlife films before you head off on safari with Inquisitive Africa and your personal choice of beverages and snacks would be provided too.

This complimentary value add is possible when we reserve a luxury room with breath-taking views and offering some of the best sunset’s views in the whole of Cape Town, this is the perfect location for any Cape Town stay. After a day exploring the Mother City or Cape Winelands, sink into plush leather seats with state-of-the-art flat screen Dolby surround sound, with lavish assortment of goodies, including popcorn, hot chocolate, milkshakes and candy and dream of your upcoming safari with Inquisitive Africa.

Day 3-5STANFORD SOUTH AFRICA | OVERNIGHT AT GROOTBOS PRIVATE NATURE RESERVE

2 nights at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in a luxury suite on a full board basis.

Nestled between mountain and sea, the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is a five-star eco-paradise showcasing the incredible Flora and Marine life of the Southern Tip of Africa. Home of the “Marine Big 5” – whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and penguins; and with unparalleled floral diversity, Grootbos offers you a one-of-a-kind luxury African experience. Only 2 hours from Cape Town on the way to the world- renowned Garden Route, Grootbos is perfectly situated between the classic attractions of the Cape and is most certainly a highlight on any itinerary.

The name Grootbos, an Afrikaans word meaning Big Forest, is derived from the presence of our ancient Milkwood Forests. It is amongst these ancient forests that Grootbos has artfully laid out its exquisite two 5-star Lodges and exclusive Villa, with breath-taking views across the fynbos plains towards the sparkling whale sanctuary of Walker Bay in the distance.

Whether one’s interests are birding, wild flowers, whale watching, diving with great white sharks or relaxing on unspoilt beaches, Grootbos has it all. The gourmet cuisine on offer at this luxury destination is crafted from the finest and freshest local ingredients, including seafood specialties and excellent South African wines.

Grootbos is about more than just luxury accommodation and eco adventures. Your visit directly contributes to the conservation efforts of the Grootbos Foundation as well as the development of sustainable nature-based livelihoods amongst local communities.

Day 5-7STELLENBOSCH, SOUTH AFRICA | OVERNIGHT AT DELAIRE GRAFF

2 nights at Delaire Graff in a luxury Vineyard Lodge on a bed and breakfast basis. Delaire Graff Estate is surrounded by sweeping views across stunning vineyards and mountains towards Stellenbosch, one of the world’s leading wine destinations. This incredible location provides a sense of escape and privacy for the guests of the Estate’s Lodges and Spa.

Designed with the discerning traveler in mind, each of the generously proportioned lodges, as well as the Presidential, Owner’s Lodges & Villa, are all thoughtfully conceived with careful attention to detail. Spacious living spaces and light filled interiors flow seamlessly outdoors where guests can choose to dip into their private plunge pool or relax on their private balcony. Each private kitchen is stocked with everything from organic coffee and specialist teas to the finest handmade chocolates.

Here, guests can enjoy art and design, gourmet foods, award winning wines and a world class spa featuring a range of products and exclusive treatments from Swiss Perfection and Aromatherapy Associates.

Day 7-9 THE OKAVANGO DELTA| OVERNIGHT AT DUBA PLAINS CAMP

2 nights at Duba Plains Camp in a luxury tent on a full board basis. Duba Plains Camp is a wildlife connoisseur’s getaway to the Okavango Delta. Built on a wooded island, connected to the prolific wildlife area by an elaborate set of bridges, the camp is the base of many famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert.
The intimate camp consists of five traditional-style tents and the 2-bedroom Duba Plains Suite.

All sit on raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of wildlife parading past. Each tent has a lounge area, a private veranda, beautifully appointed en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double basins and indoor and outdoor showers and luxurious baths.

Guests will be able to enjoy their own private plunge pool and outdoor under cover sala/day rest area. The main area consists of a large raised dining room, and a comfortable lounge with private dining areas, wine cellar, library, and chef’s kitchen with ample space for guests to either find a privacy or come together. The camp’s center-point is the gathering place of all bush experiences, the fire place on an extended deck into the swamp. Duba Plain’s Toyota Land Cruisers are aptly named ‘Swamp Vehicles’ due to their extra-high suspension and absolutely huge tyres uniquely designed to traverse the floodplains. Duba Plains offers Botswana’s best land safari as well as an Okavango Delta experience, from wildlife viewing and birding or fishing from the boat, to walking and exciting drives with knowledgeable guides and friendly hosts.

Day 9-11SELINDA RESERVE| OVERNIGHT AT ZARAFA CAMP

2 nights at Zarafa Camp in a luxury tent on a full board basis. Zarafa Camp is an intimate, four room exquisite tented camp located on the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, an area linking the Okavango Delta and the Chobe/Savute corridors. Its villa, the Dhow Suites, consist of two tents and private main area and operates entirely independently of main camp. Few camps rival the location of this little gem, Botswana’s first and only Relais & Chateaux property. Overlooking the crystal waters Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the famous

Savute Channel, every area of camp has a magnificent view. The lagoon is also the water source for a tremendous population of wildlife – dry season sightings boast buffalo and elephant by the hundreds.

Zarafa Camp and Dhow Suites are the brainchild of the founders, who pooled their collective experience on safari to create what they deemed to be the best and most environmentally innovative camp. As a consequence, Zarafa may in fact be the “greenest” luxury safari camp on the continent. Only recycled hardwoods and canvas were used in the construction and all the camp’s electricity comes from its solar farm while a ‘bio-gas’ system recycles vegetable waste into usable cooking gas.

The Zarafa Camp guest tents, 1000 sq. ft in size are under beige, flowing canvas, with canopy ceilings and completely open (yet netted) sides. Entering through the heavy wood Lamu door transports guests to a lavish space of deep reds, browns, brass and copper, evoking richness and beauty. Each tent has a full lounge and a gas fireplace. The large bedroom is connected to an open layout bathroom with impressive copper claw foot bath, indoor shower, separate loo and double basins.

Decking around the tent leads to the private plunge pool and outdoor shower, all with views of pristine Botswana wilderness. Under an impressive canopy of African ebony trees, the camp has a sizable main lounge, with adjacent library and dining area. Zarafa has succeeded in successfully in retaining a clearly African feel, while balancing that delicate relationship between personal and informal and romance and adventure. With a maximum of just eight guests, Zarafa Camp offers complete flexibility. While drives do focus on the most comfortable and productive times of day, early morning and late afternoon, full day drives, walks and boating (water level dependent) are great ways to fill the day at Zarafa.
