Join us on a botanical tour and journey that offers you insights into South Africa’s distinctively different gardens and botanical wealth, abundant beauty, endless skies and friendly people.
Explore the Cape, The Winelands and Johannesburg in springtime – taking in iconic sights, landmark locations and spectacular, shore-based whale watching in Hermanus.
Find out about fynbos, and why the Cape Floral Kingdom is a botanical treasure chest, one of only six floral kingdoms in the world, the smallest yet by far the richest, and among the very hottest of global biodiversity hotspots. Home to more plant species than found in the entire northern hemisphere, with 70% of these plants found no where else in the world, this region is also one of the most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life on earth.
Visit fascinating gardens all timed for peak spring flowering, some captivating private jewels, some public showcases such as Kirstenbosch – one of the world’s Magnificent Seven and Harold Porter coastal botanical garden, some featured in the BBC series Around the World in 80 Gardens such as Brenthurst, others exciting newcomers like Babylonstoren.
Meet luminaries and locals, hearing from ‘green’ champions about sustainabilty successes, environmental challenges and collaborations between the wine industry and the conservation sector on this small group Cultural tour.
Discover unexpected botanical gems in hand picked places, and view a priceless collection of furnishings at Groote Schuur, the residence of South Africa’s former prime ministers.
In the Cradle of Humankind celebrate your farewell night under African stars in this World Heritage Site, unequalled for hominid fossil finds anywhere on earth that is also home to the expansive and tranquil gardens of Nirox Sculpture Park.
Stay in stylish hotels – three are Relais & Châteaux, savouring a variety of exciting flavours and sampling world-class wines.
Opt for the experience of a lifetime … a luxury wildlife safari to discover the magic of Africa.
Why don’t you extend your trip and see the Big Five at a magnificent private wilderness concession adjacent to the Kruger National Park?
