Detailed Description

Vacate your worries and leave your stress behind on this 7-day adventure through Cape Town and South Africa’s Western Province. Visit during the dry winter months of the Southern Hemisphere to see the sights of South Africa’s famed wildlife. However, whether in the cool winter or the warm summer the sights are always fabulous and the adventure is always welcomed and welcoming. Your time in the Western Cape Province is filled with the area’s incredible history, its mixture of cultural diversity, from its food to its neighborhoods, and is surrounded by glorious landscapes. Cape Town is not just a city it is a lifestyle.

Begin your vacate(ion) as you land in Cape Town. The mountains and ocean border the city on either side. The Table Mountain Range separates Cape Town from the surrounding life of South Africa. The Atlantic separates the city from the surrounding world while the city itself is filled with the beauty of mountains, beaches, people, and history. Rich with art, gardens, museums, and walkways, the Victoria & Albert Waterfront is a great place for a stroll or meander through the Company Gardens. Sit along the pristine beach of Camps Bay or see the city’s unique surroundings at Cape Point. You will venture out of Cape Town to Stellenbosch for a delicious journey through the Western Cape Province’s best-known winelands. Taste the wine, wander through the valley, enjoy the food and take in the experience.

Just outside of Cape Town, your journey through the Western Cape Province will bring you to Aquila Private Game Reserve for your South Africa safari. The reserve is chockfull of the famous South African wildlife that most people only dream about. Lions, buffalo, rhinoceros, elephants, and leopards make up the African Big Five, so named due to their being the five most dangerous animals to hunt on the continent. Game drive through the park and comb the bush for these and many of the other residents that call the African wild their home. This includes the remaining sites of the Sans tribes who have decorated rocks throughout South Africa with visions of themselves and the wildlife that they lived among. South Africa is best when you leave behind the tribulations of everyday life and ready yourself for the new everyday you are about to experience.
