This meander is a perfect illustration of South Africa as a world in one country. Travel the grasslands of the gold-rich Highveld to the haunting barrenness of the Great Karoo; trundle through the spectacular mountain ranges and scenic winelands of the Cape. Journey’s end is Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head. Highlights of the north- and southbound routes include a visit to the historic village of Matjiesfontein, an authentically preserved Victorian Village founded as a refreshment stop in 1890, which also boasts an impressive museum on the platform. Another stop is made in Kimberley to visit the Diamond Mine Museum and the world’s largest man-made excavation, the Big Hole. Available in reverse.
*Please note that we have amended the popular Cape Town journey from two nights to three nights to accommodate various operational challenges and manage service expectations. The excursions remain the same with the additional night including two extra meals. Our pricing remains unchanged for the 2022 season (1 October 2021-30 September 2022) but the rate will increase for the 2023 season (1 October 2022-30 September 2023) onwards.
