Lions and rhinos and cheetahs—oh, my. Oh, yeah…and elephants and giraffes and impala and even penguins! Step out of the ordinary and into Africa for a holiday that will leave you in awe! This 9-day Monograms holiday includes a choice of accommodations, private guided sightseeing, shared game drives, breakfast daily, and four lunches. Plus, in Cape Town and Johannesburg a Local Host® is at your service—a friendly face and expert on the local scene who ensures your holiday runs smoothly, answers your questions, and helps you personalize your experience. And on safari, you’ll have experienced Rangers and game trackers with you on all game drives.
From the moment you take your first step, the Monograms difference becomes apparent. Your holiday begins in Cape Town, where we can pick you up at the airport and escort you to your hotel. Dig into a delicious included breakfast the next morning before a private guided tour with your Local Host featuring a cable-car ride to the top of Table Mountain for spectacular views of Cape Town. Next, descend from the mountain to the ocean as you visit Boulders Beach with its delightful colony of African penguins. Lastly, explore beautiful Cape Point Nature Reserve—home to Cape Point, the southwestern most point on the continent. The following day is free to explore on your own or you can join an optional excursion. Consider a visit to the beautiful Cape winelands for a magical day winery visits and tastings. From June to December you can also choose to go whale-watching in Hermanus, the self-proclaimed whale-watching capital of the world.
Next, travel to the Kruger National Park area, where we transfer you to your lodge in a private game reserve. From here, head out multiple times with a professional Ranger in search of Africa's “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. You’re sure to encounter many other species as well. Cap off each day with refreshing included sundowner drinks, the perfect way to relax and reflect as the sun sets over the beautiful South Africa landscape.
Finally, embark a quick flight to Johannesburg, where your Local Host will welcome and acquaint you with the world’s largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline. Private sightseeing takes you inside the fascinating Apartheid Museum, SOWETO, and the former home of Nelson Mandela—and features lunch at a local “Joburg” restaurant.
From start to finish, Monograms’ South African Sojourn is an incredible journey, with accommodations, guides, sightseeing, and transportation already included! With the time saved and the comfort of knowing you have a local there to assist you throughout your holiday, you’ll be one happy traveller!
