Cape Town: We have chosen the Victoria & Alfred Hotel due to its amazing location in Cape Town. Set beside the quays, this stunning hotel is a short walk away from the popular V&A Waterfront complex. Originally built in 1904, the hotel was converted into a luxury hotel in 1990. The benefit of this location results in a wide range of dining and drinking options. There is also a lovely swimming pool set across the road, nestled in lush gardens. This is the perfect place to relax after a busy day. There are 94 spacious rooms, each offering free wifi.

Eastern Cape: We have chosen the Kariega Game Reserve. The price includes a 3 night stay at the Kariega Main Lodge, which is set high above the reserve and provides spectacular views.  The chalets are fully air-conditioned and feature en-suite bedrooms, lounge, and a private deck where you can admire the Kariega River Valley below. Relax back at your lodge after a busy day for dinner under the stars.

Why not upgrade to a River Lodge which sits on the banks of the river? The lodges are cosy and intimate and provide the perfect place to sit back and relax before enjoying a stunning evening meal.  Settlers Drift is set within a remote valley overlooking the Bushman’s River.  The rooms are spacious, and the living area and en suite are set under a tented roof.  Ukhozi Lodge provides 10 luxury log suites located close to the Kariega River and provides a magical place to stay under a blanket of stars. Ask us for upgrade details.

All accommodation comes with complete meal plans and twice-daily game drives giving you the opportunity to see the stunning wildlife the reserve has to offer.
