Discovering the Cape Winelands

A wine-pairing dinner at a historic estate in the Cape Winelands

The Cape Winelands, South Africa's key wine producing region just outside of Cape Town, is one of the most beautiful in the world. Heading south from Cape Town, follow the wine trail skirting Table Mountain National Park, through towns reflecting their centuries-old Dutch origins, to the Constantia Valley, the heart of the Winelands since vineyards were first established in the region by Dutch settlers in the 17th century. One of the area's oldest wine estates is the Steenberg Farm; enjoy a wine-pairing dinner at the vineyard featuring its acclaimed wines.

South Africa's Kruger National Park

Game drives in Kruger National Park in South Africa's lowveldt

Kruger National Park, in the heart of the South African lowveldt, boasts one of the highest recorded densities of wildlife – and especially of leopards – in the African continent. On our private game drives in Kruger during your Tauck safari adventure, keep your eyes open for elephants, cheetah, rhinos, wild dogs and, of course, leopards, along with many other endangered and rare mammals, birds and reptiles.

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

Paradise in the bushveldt

At the Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, the magic begins the moment you drive into the Sabi Sand Private Reserve bordering Kruger National Park. One of four Sabi Sabi lodges located in the heart of the reserve, your contemporary accommodations are designed to capture the moment as it happens... with moving views of the bushveldt from your luxury suite... endless wildlife sightings at the watering hole feet from the lounge, atrium and bar area... with an ever-vigilant guide on private game drives, twice daily, from dawn to dusk... during afternoon tea served with tradition... and at sundowners under a crimson sky.

Africa's Big Five in the first hours of the safari and the grandeur of Victoria Falls all were truly wonderful.

From cities to rural villages, game reserves to magnificent Victoria Falls, this trip does it all while being housed in the best of what the area has to offer. With 8 Tauck Tours under our belts, this was one of the finest (as was our tour director). We had a small group adventure with 19 fantastic people.

Most Memorable Moment:

The animals? The people? The scenery? The history? Who can pick just one!

Everything we thought it would be plus! Our Hotel in Cape town (Cape Grace) was exquisite, perfectly situated at the marina. Lots of markets to browse local handicrafts. Kruger National Park with our driver and tracker, where we saw the big five the first day. Sabi Sabi was spectacular accommodations and Safari. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Most Memorable Moment:

When our tracker and driver tracked us to an embankment,"backed" down to a river bed where we wound up right next to a beautiful Leopard. Excitement personified.
