Renowned for its all-rounder beach, bush and city appeal, Southern Africa is sure to leave visitors longing for more.
What offers even greater appeal is the destination’s value for money, where luxury, without breaking the bank is a true reality.
While the destination offers many luxury experiences, what is perhaps worth mentioning in more detail is the region’s luxury rail offering, ideally targeted toward incentive travellers.
The incentive sees visitors kicking off their journey in trendy Cape Town, introducing guests to the highlights of the Fairest Cape of them all, in true style!
The luxury rail journey is all about sipping champagne on Table Mountain marvelling at the spectacular views over one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
Guests can look forward to a true luxurious adventure, enjoying a traditional High Tea in one of the oldest and grandest hotels in the city; tirelessly exploring Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of Africa’s most spectacular driveways en-route to scenic Cape Point on a bicycle. Excursions into the renowned Cape Winelands are conducted by coach but could also take place on Harley Davidsons, by helicopter or in vintage cars – it is really up to the visitors to decide.
What makes Cape Town ideal as a starting point is its offering as a great outdoors destination, due to its ideal weather conditions and scenic beauty, best enjoyed with a luxury picnic set in the vineyards overlooking the Cape Point Nature Reserve.
In recent years, internationally acclaimed gourmet chefs have added a further dimension to visiting the Cape. Gourmet-food, served in world-class restaurants, from Fine Dining to enjoying a Pan African Eating Experience.
Following the first three days in Cape Town, guests on day four to six will make their way to Pretoria where they will be spoilt not only with outstanding cuisine and delectable South African wines. The journey is an experience not to be missed, including a visit to the perfectly preserved Victorian village of Matjiesfontein, as well as a longer stop in the historical diamond mining town of Kimberley. Here, visitors will be able to explore the Diamond Mine Museum and the largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole in Kimberley – all showcasing South Africa’s rich diamond history.
Upon arrival in Pretoria on day six guests will then be taken on their next adventure for a bush experience at Pilanesberg National Park.
A true African Safari, to explore nature and the country’s legendary Big 5 Game, is the penultimate experience. Game drives are conducted in open safari vehicles, twice a day and bring visitors not only into close proximity to elephant and lion, thereby sending Adrenalin levels soaring. It also projects the guest into an environment, which reminds of a by-gone era, an oasis of peace and only the sounds of nature to relax the busy mind.
On the day of departure, a well-known South African author and philanthropist conducts an intriguing historical cultural presentation on one of South Africa’s least known, yet oldest traditional communities.
While SW Africa prides itself on custom and tailor-made itineraries it currently has a variety of pre-priced package options available covering the entire MICE spectrum and showcasing the value and expectation qualities destination Southern Africa has to offer.
