We’ve paired delectable South African wine with an exhilarating safari, creating one of the most exciting wine vacations in the world!
In the shadow of Table Mountain in the Western Cape lies South Africa’s famed wine country. The first vines were planted by the Dutch governor of Cape of Good Hope back in the 17th century. Thanks to its dry, mountainous climate, the region is one of the world’s top ten largest wine producers and is known for its incredible Chenin Blancs, Bordeaux-style blends, Cabernet Sauvignons, and native Pinotages. We’ll stay in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town and the university and wine town of Stellenbosch.
You’ll not only learn about a variety of incredible wines but of South Africa’s history and culture as they are intrinsically intertwined. The country is truly one of the most amazing lands on the earth and you will be inspired by its music, its people, and its culture.
After we’ve sipped and savored our way around the Western Cape, we’ll hop on a plane and head East for a thrilling safari, just outside Kruger National Park. There’s nothing like sitting in an open Land Rover as your ranger and spotter track a pride of lions or a herd of elephants. It’s an incredible event and something everyone should have the opportunity to experience at least once in a lifetime. We have never seen someone unimpressed with a safari.
