South Africa's wildlife and game reserves have an unrivalled variety of animal and bird species and we are staying for 2 nights in luxury chalets in the magnificent 25,000-acre, malaria free, Kariega Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape.

We include 3 game drives, and hope to see the Big 5 - elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino, from the comfort of an open game drive vehicle. Throughout the tour there are also a multitude of other animals and birds to see in their natural environment. When in Hermanus we hope to see Southern Right Whales, which swim very close to the rocky shoreline.

Agriculture

As a result of the advantageous and varied climatic conditions of South Africa, the agriculture of the country is diverse and interesting. Our itinerary of visits will include traditional visits associated with dairy, beef, sheep and arable farming, in addition to more unusual enterprises such as an ostrich and an abalone shellfish farm.

The Western Cape is famed for its fruit orchards and wine production, we stay for one night at a wine estate close to Stellenbosch, in a beautiful spa hotel. Our stay allows time for a relaxed tour around the farming/cultivation side of the vineyard, in addition to a close look at the wine production.
