Cape Town

Resting at the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic Ocean, sandwiched between the slopes of the iconic Table Mountain and the glistening sapphire waters of Table Bay, the exceptionally 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.

Overnight: Castle of Good Hope

The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest surviving building in South Africa. Built between 1666 and 1679, this pentagonal fortification replaced a small clay and timber fort built by Commander Jan van Riebeeck in 1652 upon establishing a maritime replanishment station art the Cape of Good Hope for the Dutch East India Company, better known as the VOC (Verenigde Oos-Indische Compagnie).

Karoo

Composed of the Great and Little Karoo, this vast semi-desert region may seem harsh and unforgiving to some, but to others it’s a sanctuary of peace and silence with its own unique, compelling beauty. Extending across 400 000 square kilometres of the country, the Karoo is South Africa’s biggest ecosystem and its arid scrublands shelter a surprisingly rich diversity of plant, bird and animal life. Highlights of the area are the fossil trail in the Karoo National Park and the annual Olive Festival in the small town of Prince Albert.

Overnight: Nieuwoudtville

Namaqualand

Every year in early spring, the arid Namaqualand region of South Africa transforms itself into a kaleidoscope of colour with the flowering of thousands of wildflowers. This short-lived, vibrant explosion of colour in what is usually a barren landscape, brings a multitude of local and international visitors who come for the flower season’s endlessly photogenic landscapes, wild flower shows and warm West Coast hospitality.

Overnight: Springbok Lodge

Springbok is the ideal stop-over, as it offers easy driving to Upington, Cape Town, the West Coast, the Richtersveld and Namibia. Get to know Namaqualand with a visit to the Springbok Lodge & Restaurant – your one-stop accommodation service in Namaqualand. The Springbok Lodge & Restaurant is a family business, operated since 1947 when it was known as the Springbok Café and Private Hotel. Today the main building houses the reception of the lodge, the restaurant, a café and curio shop. The main building also boasts very interesting displays of mineral specimens, a photographic exhibition on the Richtersveld and historic Namaqualand as well as paintings by South African artists such as Sima Eliovson, Johan van Niekerk and Barbara Jeppe. The lodge offers a wide range of accommodation for up to 200 people. Accommodation is in different buildings within walking distance from reception and the restaurant. The names of the different houses reflect their history, e.g. Huis Kallie Fischer, Die Stoor & Die Ankerhuis. Accommodation is offered in single and double rooms, family units & self-catering units.

Augrabies Falls National Park

The park’s namesake thunders as the Orange River drops some 60 metres through a narrow gap, forming a right angle on the way. The powerful and deafening Augrabies Falls are surrounded by rocks and kokerbome (quiver trees) which are home to klipspringer, springbok, gemsbok, giraffe and other African fauna.

Overnight: Augrabies Falls Rest Camp

The Augrabies Falls Rest Camp is set in beautiful surroundings and offers warm hospitality. The rest camp is large and well organised, offering accommodations inside Augrabies Falls National Park. It provides an excellent base from which to explore the lovely northern Cape park.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

For a different type of wildlife experience, many tourists head west to the least populated part of South Africa, where the famous Kalahari Desert or, as it is now known, the Kgalagadi, starts. One of the jewels of the desert, it is a beautiful wilderness of grasslands and red sand dunes protected by the cross border reserve between South Africa and Botswana. The South African part of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park used to be known as the Kalahari Gemsbok Park. The park is renowned for its predator and raptor viewing, and not surprisingly, its gemsbok or oryx; the elegant grey, black and white antelope with their rapier-like horns.

Overnight: Twee Rivieren Rest Camp

In a setting such as the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park's, where striking red sand dunes are offset by sparse, hardy vegetation and resilient desert wildlife, Twee Rivieren camp possesses the character and stature of a desert camp to be remembered. Occupying an impressive position on the dry Nossob river bed, the camp is revered for its seasonal migrations of desert herbivores, such as blue wildebeest and red hartebeest, as well as the ever-trailing predators, yielding exciting hunts and game viewing from virtually all corners of the camp. This camp is the administrative headquarters of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park as a whole, and the largest rest camp within its borders.
