Travel Artistry Africa’s Tamsyn Fricker featured in Travel & Leisure with a trip to South Africa. Since this trip was posted we have seen significant strength in the USD against the ZAR (South African Rand) which means even GREATER value for luxury when considering such an adventure!
Be sure to reach-out for further information, as all Travel Artistry Africa itineraries are designed to suit you… this itinerary is a fabulous starting point (and maybe the right match) but there is certainly much more on offer. Contact Tamsyn on firstname.lastname@example.org
“To experience South Africa’s natural beauty and the wine, and a safari.” — Charlotte Livingston Piotrowski, via Facebook
T+L A-List advisor Tamsyn Fricker (13 days from $13,685 per person) recommends the following journey:
Days 1–2: Arrive at stylish Birkenhead House, in Hermanus, on the southern coast. From June to November, keep an eye out for southern right whales, visible from the pool deck.
Days 3–4: Head to Richard Branson’s wine country estate, Mont Rochelle Hotel & Mountain Vineyard, in Franschhoek. You can ride horses in the valley and dine at chef Chris Erasmus’s spot, Foliage.
Days 5–7: Your Cape Town stay includes a white-on-white suite at the Cape View Clifton, hiking Lion’s Head mountain, and the vibrant art scene in Woodstock.
Days 8–10: The revamped 12-suite Singita Boulders Lodge is breathing new life into the game-rich Sabi Sands Reserve. A dining pavilion hovers over a river where hippos and elephants gather.
Days 11–13: At the 250,000-acre Tswalu Kalahari Reserve, a favorite of Bono, you’ll track the black rhino, hear the majestic Kalahari lion roar, and, if you’re lucky, see an elusive armadillo-like pangolin.
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
