New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destinations

Cape Town

Cape Town is renowned for being one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Situated at the base of Table Mountain, it is the capital city of the Western Cape. Whether you are looking for history, natural beauty or a cosmopolitan lifestyle, the 'Mother City' has it all. There is such a diversity of attractions and activities you will not be disappointed with your city experience. Offering fantastic views of the city, Table Mountain dominates the skyline. For natural surroundings there are gardens, beaches and vineyards all close by. Cape Town is steeped in history and many of the museums and monuments have much to tell. For a cosmopolitan and lively experience, visit the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with a wide variety of shops, restaurants and craft markets.

Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch dates back to 1679 and is the second-oldest wine producing region in South Africa. No more than half an hour’s drive from the cosmopolitan buzz of Cape Town, here there is a relaxed, small-town atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle, no doubt helped by the stunning natural scenery. The views over vineyards, mountains and orchards offer excellent photographic opportunities and provide a calming respite from the exciting pace of Cape Town. The mild weather and unique territory is ideal for wine-growing and the region has amassed many international awards over the years. Daily wine-tasting and cellar tours are available at most of the numerous vineyards. Many also have restaurant and picnic facilities to spend a leisurely afternoon.

Pretoria

Home to elegant, authentic architecture, significant historical sites, gorgeous leafy suburbs, and wide streets lined with bright, purple jacarandas that bloom in late Autumn, Pretoria is a simply sublime stop on any tourist's South African adventure. As a city that was once the beating heart of the apartheid regime, today, Pretoria is infused with a vibrant sense of multiculturalism.

Waterberg

Situated in the central Limpopo province, just a 3 hour drive from Johannesburg, the malaria-free Waterberg Biosphere is a scenic and wildlife-rich area. The impressive Waterberg Mountain Range stretches across the Reserve, creating a natural diversity with endless views of the plains. There is a wide variety of flora and fauna, a chance to see the Big Five, and over 40 special of game including the highly endangered Sable antelope.

Game Drive Safaris at Safari Plains 4*

Your Included Excursions
The varied habitats on the Greater Mabula Game Reserve provide ideal conditions for an astounding selection of large mammals including the Big Five, alongside other predators such as Brown Hyena, Jackal and Cheetah, and an impressive variety of antelope from Red Hartebeest to Eland, Gemsbok and Blesbok. 

An early Morning safari around sunrise and afternoon Safari with sundowners are offered to lodge guests, and depending on the time of year you visit, each experience can be unique. Watch the vivid change of the seasons as the green thickets and grasslands give way to the bushveld greys and yellows of autumn. See Impala, Zebra, Giraffe, and Ostrich all graze together on the vast open grassland plains; the herd of elephant crashing through thick bush to get to the juiciest leaves and a shy hippo pair hiding everything but their protruding nostrils under the water.

Admire the resident lion pride lazing under an African thorn tree after a tiring hunt or watch silently as the beautiful, yet terrifying, Golden Orb spider spins her thick web across two Silver Cluster Leaf trees. Each safari drive will reveal new scents, curious sounds and the beauty of an authentic African landscape to delight your senses.
