My African adventure…come join me. 

After flying via Sydney & Johannesburg to Capetown, our group was met by the very efficient andBeyond Travel and transferred to the gorgeous Franschhoek Country House & Villas where we had a very welcome nights’ sleep and was to be our base for 2 nights.

A lovely wander through the gorgeous boutique style shops that Franschhoek is known for before we headed out for the remainder of the day to the equally gorgeous Boschendal, followed by Delaire Graff Estate where we sampled their exclusive wines and learned about their origins in such pristine surroundings.


Table Mountain

Table Mountain & Capetown Sightseeing

Our andBeyond Travel guide met us for the drive to Capetown, it was perfect weather today to explore Cape Town. Excited that we got to travel up Table Mountain on the Cable Car, it was very windy but so worth it, the views from the top were amazing.

Our afternoon touring with our andBeyond Travel guide was a great chance to learn about the citys long history and out hotel for the evening was the Commodore Hotel, a safe location right on the V&A waterfront.

Now the Adventure really starts. Flying from Capetown via Kruger to Phinda Private Game reserve.

An amazing stay within the Phinda Private Game Reserve.   Phinda is the home to six magnificent lodges, each with its own unique charm & character.

Our stay at 2 of these fabulous lodges, Phinda Forest Lodge & Phinda Mountain Lodge, allowed us to get up close & personal with so much wildlife, the lodge staff were the perfect hosts and the guides always had a mindful eye on the surroundings so always felt in the safest of hands.

Our arrival saw us welcomed by the local wildlife on the airstrip, this in itself was to be such a life changing moment. Your lodge stay includes all meals, house wines, selected spirits, teas and coffees, twice daily safaris with expert guides searching for the Big Five and the list goes on….

I have fabulous World Journeys packages available taking in 3 nights or longer in the Phinda game reserve at one of their beautiful lodges, one of these packages is an absolute must to include with your South Africa holiday. Let me plan your African adventure and we can make it an absolute magical experience together..

Hotel Sun City

We travelled from Johannesburg to Sun City by private coach, a journey of approx. 2.5 hours, our accommodation for the next 2 nights was at the Palace of the Lost City Hotel. 

This luxury five-star hotel in Sun City truly is something spectacular, taking its architectural and interior themes from the legend of a lost African tribe to capture the essence of The Palace.

Accommodation fit for royalty, The Palace of the Lost City. Regal architecture surrounded by botanical gardens, dotted with sculptures, streams and waterfalls really makes this hotel feel palatial. An Olympic size pool and an indulgent spa enhance the vibe. Families can enjoy the impressive waterpark and maze, while nature lovers can explore the incredible Pilanesberg National Park which borders Suncity in the North West Province and see all of the Big Five.
