Travel with us to magnificent South Africa January 7 - 19, 2020
Each year we take a group of seven couples to the beautiful country of South Africa. We spend five nights in one of the world's most spectacular cities - Cape Town. Here we stay at the luxurious Cape Grace Hotel - voted by Conde Nast as the top hotel in all of Africa!
While in Cape Town, we play rounds of golf at Arabella Golf Club, Steenburg Golf Club, and Pearl Valley.
Highlights of the Cape Town portion of our trip also include wine tours and tastings, an excursion to the top of the majestic Table Mountain - one of the natural wonders of the world, shopping at the renowned Victoria & Alfred Waterfront shops and a relaxed morning enjoying the sights and sounds of one of South Africa's prettiest towns - Franschhoek.
Following our time in Cape Town, we then travel by private charter flight to the 5 Star Makanyane Safari Lodge. Here we spend five magnificent nights in this malaria free park located in the Madikwe Game Reserve near the Botswana border.
Guests stay in private romantic and secluded suites with rich African textures. Wrap-around glass walled interiors with uninterrupted views of the Marico River and the surrounding bush, spectacular bathrooms with roll top baths as well as indoor and outdoor showers and a private sun deck make the Makanyane stay like no other in the world.
Game drives are in open vehicles specially designed to ensure comfort and safety. Qualified, professional and armed safari guides provide adventures through the African bush. Lion, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, and leopard are all here in abundance, as well as cheetah, giraffe and both spotted and brown hyena. Madikwe is also the one of the best places in Southern Africa to watch the elusive and rare wild dog, a fascinating species on the brink of extinction.
