HOW WE DO THINGS
This national tour is timed at the peak of the spring flowering season when temperatures are at their most pleasant in Cape Town and during jacaranda season in Johannesburg. The star* indicates gardens featured in the BBC series Around the World in 80 Gardens.
We select hotels for charm & character that are owner-managed & restaurants with seasonal fare and regional wines – wherever possible.
We seek out less travelled roads – and tread lightly wherever we go.
We dig deep into our roots to enrich your routes. Take you where you couldn’t get to by yourself. Offer you an insider’s track.
We exclude international flights which gives you the freedom to choose your route/flying class as well as to opt for any pre-or-post trip extensions.
Why don’t you extend your trip with a wildlife safari to discover the magic of Africa – and lighten your carbon footprint in the process?
