Combining Cape Town with a stay on South Africa's east coast in the province of KwaZulu Natal, this itinerary offers a city break, a beach stay and a safari in one holiday. Perfect for any time of year, this may particularly suit those travelling in South Africa's winter months from June to August where the weather in KwaZulu Natal is normally pleasantly warm and dry.
Beginning in Cape Town, spend your time exploring all that the city has to offer before flying to the coastal city of Durban. Here you can expect a sub-tropical climate, beautiful beaches and an array of activities. The highlight of the trip will undoubtedly be the Big 5 Safari at Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge in the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve, around 3-4 hours north of Durban. You will stay at in a luxurious suite and enjoy exhilarating game drives, guided walks and candlelit dinners under African night sky.
Whatever your budget, our travel experts will work with you and give expert advice to make the very most of your available time and funds. They will guide you on the best time of year to travel, select the best value destinations and secure the little ‘add-ons’ that will make your tailor-made trip that extra bit special.
