Cape Town’s stunning location between the mountains and the deep blue sea is matched only by its cosmopolitan joys. The culture and cuisine offer a unique taste of the Mother City’s delights. In the Winelands, our very own wine expert introduces you to the world-famous wine of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, and Paarl. There, the wineries have breath-taking vine-laden landscape backdrops. Many of them are historical farms with beautiful Cape Dutch manors houses, gardens, hotels, and fine-dining restaurants. Lastly, embark on a memorable and unbeatable safari at our private luxury tented camp. Tick off Big Five and experience much more classic South African wildlife.

Highlights

A Country of Contrasts

From waddling penguins to stalking lions, and coastlines to bushveld, revel in the unique contrasts that South Africa boasts. A mere one-hour drive takes you from the vibrant city center of Cape Town to the lush, mountainous Cape Winelands region. Experience the oldest wine industry outside of Europe, and fusion cuisine all in one country. Join us in discovering the diversity of landscapes, people, cuisine and culture within South Africa.

Cape Town, First!

Picture a craggy mountain range peppered with green, that drops into the cool Atlantic ocean. Envisage pristine white sand beaches, lapped by the Atlantic, and adorned with giant granite boulders. Visualize forests dappled with burbling streams, and lofty trees. Your Art In Voyage hosts share with you their hidden-gem discoveries around Cape Town as well as the more known of must-sees such as colorful Bo Kaap and the majestic Table Mountain.

The Big Five

Roaming in one national park, you will spot an incredible variety of wildlife. Embark on thrilling game drives through the Kruger National Park tracking down The Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo), hippo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, meerkat, kudu, hyena, and ostrich, just to name a few. Nestled in the bushveld, your luxurious private tented camp awaits you with a welcoming ambiance.

And then there is the Wine!

There are more than 150 cellars in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, both part of the Cape Winelands region (45 minutes away from Cape Town). Franschhoek, meaning “French Corner”, will impress you with not only superb wines, but also some of the finest art galleries in South Africa, gracious Cape Dutch estates, and exquisite cuisine.

Everything was 5 stars… accommodations, food, excursions & the hosting people throughout our entire travels. This was a journey of a lifetime in the most comfortable, fun, educational & a-a-amazing fashion. This was our first journey with Art In Voyage and will not be our last. We plan on filling up some travels with more family & friends. I never thought I would enjoy a “group” travel, but being small & intimate was absolutely perfect, meeting some new forever friends. Thank you, thank you, Mikael!! XOXO
