Luxurious five-star hotels dot the spectacular landscape of the Western Cape province. And the region’s top-end accommodation comes in many different forms, from villas deep in wildlife-filled bushland to stylish game lodges with private pools and verandas. Alternatively, search for a five-star hotel by the sea, where you can enjoy stunning views of the rocky coastline from the window of a deluxe suite.
Personalised Safaris in Western Cape
Many safaris involve joining a crowd of tourists driving around waymarked trails, but in the Western Cape you can arrange private game drives that immerse you in the wilderness around your hotel. Private reserves such as Sanbona and Gondwana offer visitors the chance to get up close to the Big Five, Africa’s most famous animals. Stop for an extravagant lunch in the middle of the bush, then spend the afternoon seeking out elephants, lions and giraffes. At the end of the day, enjoy a sundowner on the decks of your five-star hotel or lodge, watching the sun set over the Karoo.
Sample Acclaimed Western Cape Wines
The Western Cape isn’t just known for its wildlife; it’s also famed for its superb wines. Take a self-drive tour of the Cape wine route or hire a guide to take you to some of the best wineries in the province. The town of Stellenbosch, just a short drive from Cape Town, is the wine-growing hub of South Africa, but you’ll find vineyards across the region in places such as Franschhoek and Tulbagh. In many cases, the setting is as impressive as the wine itself – there’s nothing quite like sipping a pinotage surrounded by the dramatic Western Cape mountains.
