Combining a luxurious 18-night cruise from Fremantle to Cape Town plus an exciting 12-night land tour from Cape Town to Johannesburg, this impressive itinerary kicks off on 14 March 2020 and will see you cruising the Indian Ocean with stops in Mauritius, Reunion and Durban before commencing a spectacular South African adventure on 1 April 2020.

Highlights include stopovers in Mauritius, renowned for its sapphire waters, fine white beaches and mountainous interior; the magically picturesque island of Reunion; and the charming South African coastal cities of Durban and Port Elizabeth; before disembarking in Cape Town on 31 March.
A unique blend of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, Cape Town offers up plenty of opportunities for exploring. Visit the verdant Company Gardens, the Houses of Parliament, the Iziko South African Museum and the Castle of Good Hope, or take a scenic Cableway trip to the top of Table Mountain, where you can take in spectacular 360 views, before heading to the renowned Belthazar Restaurant at Victoria Wharf, which boasts the largest wine bar in the world.
Take a tour of some of the city’s most iconic historical, cultural and scenic attractions, starting with the Seal Island Cruise where you can view thousands of wild Cape Fur Seals close up in their natural habitat. Other highlights include the breathtaking bays, beaches and rolling green hills of Cape Point and the imposing landscapes of Boulders Beach where you can even brave a swim with the penguins!
Your next stop takes you to South Africa’s Cape Winelands, and a chance to discover the region’s cultural history and its many and varied epicurean delights. A walking tour along the oak-lined avenues of Stellenbosch will allow you to take in the beautifully preserved Cape Dutch and Victorian architecture, as well as the town’s enticing art galleries, craft shops and clothing boutiques. Or foodies may prefer to indulge in mouth-watering cuisine and fine wines at one of its many chic restaurants or buzzing bistros.
Driving in to the charming town of Oudtshoorn, curious guests can sample ostrich meat and biltong, visit the world-renowned Cango Caves – the largest cave system in Africa, and marvel at delightful little critters on the Meerkat Safari. En route to Johannesburg, other highlights include wine tasting on a vintage horse drawn cart in Plettenberg Bay, the stunning suspension bridge in Tsitsikamma National Park and an optional treetop canopy tour.
At the Greater Kruger National Park, grab your binoculars and prepare for sightings of Africa’s awe-inspiring ‘Big Five’, with two full days at what is arguably one of the world’s greatest wildlife-watching destinations. Exhilarating open vehicle game drives afford you the luxury of sighting more mammals than any other African Game Reserve including elephants, lions, leopards and more, all from the comforts of your own vehicle. Spend your last night at the superb Muluwa Lodge before returning to Johannesburg on 13 April via the county’s renowned Panorama Route for your flight home.
