Ultimate Guide to Luxury South Africa

Abelana When you think of Africa does your brain initially start thinking of safaris and wildlife? While that is 1000% a large part of Africa there is so, so much more to experience. So we've broken down some of the top attractions you need to see and to while on your luxury vacation to South Africa. This itinerary will take you through Cape town, Kruger National Park, Johannesburg, Madikwe, and Mluwati!Starting with Cape Town...

 Top Cape Town attractions:
1. Embark on a horseback wine tasting tour in Cape Winelands.
2. Explore Cape Town’s bustling art & culinary scenes.
3. Watch for whales at False Bay as you delight in fresh seafood.
4. Explore Table Mountain as you ascend the slopes in a rotating cable car.

7. Swim with the renowned African penguins at Boulders Beach.

15499138_2_2_0813Best Accommodations:For modern luxury we can't recommend The Silo Hotel enough. Topping Cape Town’s new Museum Contemporary Art Africa, the family-owned Silo Hotel hits all the high notes. The former grain elevator was reimagined from rough concrete into diamond, with crystalline windows and a whimsical elegance. 

For the romantics Tintswalo Atlantic is just for you. One of Cape Town's hidden gems as it is nestled at the base of the ocean-facing Table Mountain National Park. The lodge is perched on a pebbled beach and enjoys panoramic views of the picturesque Hout Bay harbour, the dramatic Sentinel mountain peak, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond - all are not to be missed.

For Family Luxury nothing beats More Quarters. A down to earth collection of converted heritage townhouses with entrances onto a cobbled lane adjoining the main hotel, creating the feel of a secluded quarter in the suburb. From adventure and nature, history and culture, to food and shopping...there is truly something for everyone!Sublime sunsetsTop Johannesburg attractions
