Safari Experience

Having a close encounter with the Big 5 in their natural habitat is a life-altering experience! The Londolozi Game Reserve, in the heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, provides the ultimate combination of luxury and game viewing.

Londolozi is situated on the Sand River in the very heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This reserve forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a vast and growing area that currently covers six million acres and incorporates the famous Kruger National Park. Wild animals move freely across this vast space, offering spectacular game viewing and a true wilderness experience.

Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout Londolozi, while white rhino and lion concentrations are among the highest recorded on the African continent.

Game drives at Londolozi are taken by professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers, who have 350 years of experience between them. With over 16,000 hectares of traversing wilderness, no two game drives are ever the same. Trackers sit up at the front of the Land Rover looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill into ravines and through the thicket in pursuit of rare animal sightings, simultaneously wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories.

Yet it’s the leopards of Londolozi that make Londolozi world famous for wildlife and lie at the heart of the Londolozi feeling. Over the course of three decades, a unique relationship has developed between the rangers and the trackers and generations of wild leopards. Intimate leopard sightings are frequent, an experience that guests agree is a pinnacle life experience.

Golf Courses

Even though the Big 5 is the main attraction here, the golf courses in South Africa are something special as well. Amazing coastal views, two top-100 courses in the world, and courses with wildlife encounters make South African golf worth the effort of bringing your clubs!

The Links at Fancourt

The Links is currently voted number one in the country by Golf Digest South Africa, and as number 43 in Golf Digest US edition’s list of the world’s 100 greatest golf courses. The Links has hosted some of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, including the Presidents Cup (2003), the SA Open (2005) and the 2012 Volvo Golf Champions European Tour. Inspired by the famous links courses of the British Isles, The Links is considered a masterpiece and plays host to a range of global golfing legends including John Bland, Justin Rose, Retief Goosen, Branden Grace and Ernie Els.

Erinvale Golf Club

Erinvale is widely considered one of the finest Golf Residential Estates in South Africa. The development process started in 1990 and was completed in 1995. The Golf Course was designed by the legendary Gary Player and officially opened, 27th May 1995. Erinvale Golf Course is without a doubt one of the best Golf Courses in South Africa. Surrounded by the majestic Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains. It offers two very distinctly different nines. The first nine winds its way through narrow fairways flanked by exquisite properties, blending in perfectly with the landscape and environment. The second nine flows beautifully into the foot of the Helderberg’s and eventually offers the most rewarding and magnificent sweeping views over False Bay, surrounding vineyards, olive groves and Helderberg Nature Reserve.

Pearl Valley

This masterpiece, the 8th ranked course in South Africa, was shaped by the vision of golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his unique touch is evident throughout the course. Officially opened in November 2003 by Nicklaus and South African great, Gary Player, Pearl Valley was named the Best New Golf Course of the year by Golf Digest magazine in 2005. The championship course has been ranked Best Conditioned Golf Course in the Western Cape for 2010, 2011, 2012/2013 and again for 2014/2015 by Golf Digest magazine.

Fancourt Montagu

Originally designed by Gary Player, Fancourt’s Montagu course has developed into one of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts, earning it the number 6 position on Golf Digest SA’s list of top golf courses in the country. Exquisitely conditioned to provide a riveting golfing experience, this tree-lined course covers large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land.

Pezula Golf Club

Pezula Championship Golf Course is located in the Western Cape of South Africa in the picturesque town of Knysna, the jewel of the world famous Garden Route.

Pinnacle Point Golf Club

Overlooking the Indian Ocean near Mossel Bay, and designed by Peter Matkovich and 2011 Open Champion, Darren Clarke, Pinnacle Point is one of the most unique and scenic golf courses in the world. This Clifftop Fynbos Golf Course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breathtaking terrain.

All 18 holes have been designed to fit the contours of the land. In both 2016 and 2017 Pinnacle Point was named South Africa’s Best Golf Course at the Annual World Golf Awards.


Cape Town

Resting at the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, sandwiched between the slopes of the iconic Table Mountain and the glistening sapphire waters of Table Bay, the scenic city of Cape Town is in a class of its own.

Some cities boast rich culture, vibrant nightlife, a cosmopolitan atmosphere and extraordinary architecture, while others boast breathtaking landscapes and extraordinary natural wonders. Cape Town is lucky enough to be blessed with all of these attractions and so much more. With its bustling harbour, world-class beaches, top-notch vineyards, and its mountainous surroundings brimming with diverse flora and fauna, Cape Town consistently captivates the hearts of all who visit.

South African Winelands

Some of the worlds top wineries are found just outside Cape Town in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas.

For many, Cape Town has long been a focal point for South African travel, and it's easy to get caught up in its myriad of vibrant attractions, But a glance north opens up a whole other world of sightseeing opportunities. Thanks to its dry, mountainous climate, the area is home to more than 300 vineyards and is one of the World's largest wine producers. South African Winelands travel attracts oenophiles with vintages that range from Sauvignon blanc to its famed red Pinotage. Unsurprisingly, the region is a hotbed of first-class restaurants as well.

Thirteen nights of luxury in some of the best hotels in all of South Africa.

Cape Grace Hotel - Rooftop Luxury Room

Staying at Cape Grace is an experience in itself, melding the modern comforts of a Cape Town luxury hotel with traditional Cape culture. There is no better position for a Waterfront hotel than with Table Mountain standing sentry and towering over the hotel, a working harbour to one side and a multi-millionaire yacht basin on the other.

It’s a heady mix of tantalizing experiences, which makes time spent at Cape Grace something to remember forever. The word ‘GRACE’ meaning undeserved favour, is the foundation on which Cape Grace is built. Cape Grace opened its doors in December 1996 as a small boutique hotel and from the outset; the vision was to create a hotel experience that was as ‘unlike’ any other hotel
