Whilst South Africa enjoys an amiable climate all year round, the best time for game viewing is the South African winter, when the grasses are shorter, as the game is easier to see.

Delaire Graff Lodges & Spa

Located just fifty miles north of Cape Town, yet a world away from thriving city life, the Cape Winelands is a mountainous area with vast stretches of fertile land and valleys, where some of South Africa’s many vineyards have made their home. The landlocked area houses five principalities, each of which has its own signature style and identity. The region enjoys a comfortable, Mediterranean style climate that aides the production of so many world-class wines. Meanwhile, the region’s exceptional geological assets make it one of the planet’s most captivating locations. It is said that it is impossible for anyone to visit each valley, waterfall, canyon, forest, spring, peak or cave in their lifetime because the Cape Winelands’s layout is so complex and rare. The region is home to many excellent nature reserves and natural attractions, whilst the famous wine-producing legacy ensures would be sommeliers can enjoy first-class flavours at any one of the exceptional vineyards in the area, with wine-tasting tours available across the cape. The very soil of Cape Winelands is unique to any other on Earth and the wine produced here is distinct and not to be missed. However, it is not just the wine that makes this area so popular with locals and travellers alike, the food in Franschhoek is particularly renowned for its gourmet credentials. Neighbouring Stellenbosch is home to a thriving café culture, the town itself is fringed by respected vineyards and the laidback ambience encourages relaxed afternoons with good food and fine wines. Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in the stunning vistas and unforgettable scenery of this pristine area whilst hiking tours are also very popular.

Johannesburg, South Africa

Staying at

Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa

+

It used to be that visitors to South Africa would fly into and then out of Johannesburg as quickly as possible, but that’s all changing. Partly due to a regeneration programme − that includes a new Metro police force and CCTV cameras – and partly due to a clutch of sophisticated hotels, it is not only flourishing but evolving into a dynamic metropolis worthy of an extended stop-over.

Instead of heading out to the beaches of Cape Town or the wildlife stomping grounds of Kruger Park, visitors are taking the time to grasp the history and legacy of this powerful African city, whilst at the same time enjoying the innumerable diversions it has to offer. Jo'burg is to South Africa what New York is to the US of A – inextricably linked, one couldn’t really be without the other.

Staying at

Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa

+

Situated in the peaceful suburb of Sandhurst, amongst six acres of picturesque landscaped gardens, Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa is a home-away-from-home. Generously proportioned guest suites and the Saxon Luxury Villa are beautifully designed and appointed, with African accents including artwork by acclaimed local artists, and feature bay windows overlooking the delightful gardens or swimming pool. For pampering, the Saxon Spa and Studio offers a variety of treatments, including the signature ‘Sound Therapy’, a treatment using the sound of gongs, symbols, singing bowls and bells to completely relax and revive. There are several dining options to choose from, including the casual Qunu Grill, fine dining at Five Hundred, a relaxed al fresco option at The Terrace and High Tea served in the Piano Lounge. The hotel boasts two unique wine cellars and expert Sommeliers who will enthusiastically assist you in selecting from the superb wine list offering locally sourced wines, with preference given to those from Cape Town and the Western Cape.
