This 4 part self-drive itinerary takes in the highlights of both the east and west of South Africa's Cape province. It begins in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town with its host of sight seeing activities and adventures and then allows you to slow down the pace a little with a stay at the historic Boschendal Wine Estate, one of the oldest farms in South Africa. A stay here is a chance to truly enjoy the best food and wine the country has to offer and we highly recommend booking the famous Boschendal picnic. A short flight will then take you across to the Eastern Cape for your Big 5 malaria-free safari at Shamwari Private Game Reserve staying at Bayethe Tented Lodge where you will sleep under canvas and enjoy your own private plunge pool. Conclude this unique holiday with a drive further north to the area known as the Wild Coast and to stay at Prana Lodge, a luxury accommodation located on a 17 acre private beach estate within an indigenous dune forest with direct beach access.
