Welcome in the New Year on this fabulous tour that takes in the highlights of southern Africa over twelve unforgettable days.

Carefully selected luxury accommodation and exclusive private tours will allow you to get a real feel for South Africa, from the magnificent setting, culture and scenery of Cape Town, to the neighbouring Winelands for good food, tranquil countryside and superb wines.

Of course no trip to South Africa would be complete without some safari, so there’s four nights in the exclusive Sabi Sands Game Reserve for an exhilarating time spotting the Big Five, before a final two relaxing nights spent by the roaring waters of Victoria Falls in Zambia.

Private Cape Town Eats Walking Tour Private Cape Town Eats Walking Tour

So much about a country and a culture is expressed through its cuisine. In South Africa, much of the cuisine is a home cuisine and to get a taste you really need to search hard! As such this tour aims to combine the history of our country and city through exploring the back streets to find the tastes that represent this rainbow nation. With your expert local guide, you will walk the streets of Cape Town and experience its history, its people and its gourmet delights. En route, you stop to taste a mixture of traditional food, South African street food and to visit some artisanal foodie and coffee shops. This way you will enjoy a real taste of the Cape!

We suggest you only have a very light breakfast beforehand as there will be lots to eat on this tour. Unfortunately, vegans and coeliacs cannot be catered for, but vegetarians are welcome. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

Local township tour Local township tour

For a real insight into Cape Town's intriguing contemporary culture, in the morning your guide will take you to a local township. You will learn about the struggle against apartheid, and the disadvantaged community's endeavours to uplift themselves with informal trading initiatives like ‘spaza’ shops and ‘shebeens’. This tour shows how the majority of South Africans live in the buzzing townships. It is an excellent opportunity to interact with local people and share in the rich African culture and traditional values. You will get to meet residents, experience unique township culinary delights, or try some home-made brew in a shebeen (pub) while enjoying some township jazz. Visit an African craft market, spaza shop, school, orphanage, community centre and a traditional healer.
