Days 5 and 6 – Winelands
​A short drive (or helicopter flight) from Cape Town is the world-famous Cape Winelands. Situated in picturesque setting, surrounded by mountains and vineyards, this is the perfect way to dive into the making of some of the world’s best wines. Explore the Winelands with an expert guide who has access to the smaller, family run wineries and taste the wines whilst enjoying the scenery of the area. The Winelands is also home to some extraordinary world-class restaurants that really combine the flavors of South Africa paired perfectly with the wines from the region.

Days 7, 8 and 9 – Sabi Sands Game Reserve
After a couple of days exploring the Cape winelands, you transfer to Cape Town International Airport for your flight to Mpumalanga where you will be met and transferred to the world famous Sabi Sands Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sands is home to the Big Five and is one of the best places in Africa to see the elusive leopard. There are several lodges to choose from within the Sabi Sands Game Reserve to explore the area on daily morning, afternoon and night game drives as well as walking safaris. Night drives offer guests the chance to see the predators being a little more active. This is when the leopards are on the hunt, using their stealth to take down prey under the cover of darkness. Night safaris also offer the chance to see other nocturnal animals like porcupine, genets, hyenas, springhares and civets.
