Glamping and Gourmet Dining on a Holiday in South Africa

Unscripted game viewing is the highlight of a holiday in South Africa. A pride of lions idles in the grass at Kruger National Park. As one of them lets out a gut-wrenching roar, a thrill surges through your spine. Later, in a private game reserve on Kruger’s fringes, you watch a herd of elephants and lone giraffe from the wooden deck of your luxury safari lodge.

Penguins in Africa? Indeed! And southern right whales, and sealssharks, and dolphins too, all spotted along the country’s magnificent coastline. It’s impossible for one trip to capture everything this country offers, so let an Enchanting Travels bespoke itinerary help you make the best choices. It’s sure to be a real “lekker”, the favorite South African term for expressing pleasure.

Few cities in the world can boast a location as spectacular as Cape Town’s. Unmistakable Table Mountain is sure to take your breath away. Beyond it, wine safaris and gourmet dining are just an hour away in the Franschhoek Winelands. Everywhere you go, expect great food, and braai, the South African word for barbecue.

In the east, Johannesburg’s Apartheid Museum is a stirring reminder of the country’s tumultuous recent history. Further south is South Africa’s great wilderness: rivers, canyons, and the 700-mile-long Drakensberg Mountains. A varied landscape, a diverse culture, South Africa is one of those places you will keep coming back to.

We were recommended by friends to use Enchanting travel to help plan our Africa Experience. From first contact to the conclusion of the trip Enchanting travel supported our every need and looked after every detail. Our trip was absolutely flawless and an experience of a life time. I would be happy to discuss our trip with any potential customers as we feel our agenda gave us the perfect overview of sights, culture and safari activities.
