South Africa: Our Fab-U-Lous Adventure
So many OTS adventurers have requested we run a trip with a touch of ''Hemingway style''. This is going to be a popular adventure. For many of our group, Africa is a ''once in a lifetime'' opportunity, and as such they want to experience it in a little bit of style.
South Africa has it all, the vistas of Table Mountain and the wild Cape coast, the Winelands around Stellenbosch, the expanses of the Karoo, the accessible game viewing of the Kruger National Park, and all with great roads, superb food and wine, and comfortable luxury accomodation.
We are planning a great few days exploring the Cape region, the wineries of Stellenbosch, and the many dramatic landscapes towards Cape point. Each day we will head off in a different direction. Our lovely ''Heritage'' style hotel as our city base.
Cape Town is very Gay friendly, and there are a couple of nice evening bars and gay venues that we can visit, prior to heading north on our ''Out of Africa'' safari.
One of the great rail journeys of the world, we board Rovos Rail for 2 nights of old world luxury, winding our way north through the very heart of the country enroute to Pretoria. This ''Orient Express of Africa'' train journey has a couple of interesting stops along the way. Accomodation is twin share compartments with private bathroom, and the trip includes all meals on board.
On arrival in Pretoria we will pick up our hire car and drive west to the border of the Kruger Notional Park, with a chance to visit the spectacular Blyde River Canyon enroute.
We spend the next 3 days exploring one of Africa's great national wildlife areas The Kruger National Park. Here we will stay in a wonderful tented camp on the very edge of the park on a ''full board'' basis, with morning and evening game drives included each day. Here we search for the ''big five'' and experience the African bush. ''Glamping'' in stylish permanent tents, each with ensuite bathrooms, great food and evenings around the fire.
Today, after our morning game drive and a late breakfast, it's time to leave the game park and drive back to our final night's accomodation before our flights the next day.
It's time to say goodbye but not before some free time for last minute shopping or relaxing before our transfer to the airport.
South Africa remains one of my all time favourite destinations. A fantastic South Africa Tourism destinations. It is unrivaled in its scenic beauty, the game parks are accessible. The people are warm and friendly, and Gay rights are written into the constitution. This adventure combines the great value our trips are known for, but at a higher end, with some great treats, excellent food and delightful accommodation.
For those with a little extra time, some of the boys last time added a 2 night trip to see Victoria Falls. They flew from Johannesburg and had 2 nights accomodation and transfers for about US$1000 pp.
An Epic South African Luxury Adventure (Boys).
