South Africa's Winelands, Whales & KwaZulu-Natal

Overview

KwaZulu-Natal, a lush coastal province is one of South Africa’s best-kept safari secret. You will jet directly to The Homestead at Phinda from Johannesburg.

The Homestead has four suites and an interactive kitchen to get hands-on lessons with the head chef in creating South Africa’s popular dishes.

You are also flown to Cape Town and driven to the beautiful Stellenbosch Valley where your abode is the Owner’s Lodge at Delaire Graff, an estate where the wines and mountain views are matched only by the service, art collection and cuisine.

After amazing three days stay you head off to De Hoop Nature Reserve on the Western Cape coast where you will stay at Morokuru Ocean House, specifically built with comfort and green solutions in mind.
