Garden Route Fly-Drive & Game Reserve Safari in South Africa
DAYS 1 – 4: Commodore Hotel / Deluxe Room / Bed & Breakfast
‘In the heart of the V&A Waterfront’
The hotel is found 300 metres from the famous Victoria & Albert Waterfront in Cape Town’s bustling centre, 25 minutes from the airport. With wraparound views of Table Bay and Table Mountain, the Commodore Hotel’s nautical theme is aptly suited to its surroundings. It features an outdoor pool and a sauna, fitness and massage facilities. Keep up with work-out regimes in the gym or book an indulgent spa massage. As well as the buffet breakfast, Clipper Restaurant provides an à la carte selection of seafood dishes and local wines. The Admiralty Bar and Lounge serves a 24-hour cocktail menu. The Commodore comprises 236 beautifully furnished standard rooms and suites.
All rooms on the Deluxe Floors offer everything you would be accustomed to and more. Upgraded amenities, bathroom with invigorating walk-in showers, private balconies, magnificent views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, Signal Hill or the V&A Waterfront & vibrant harbour.
Days 4 – 5: Bloomestate / Luxury Garden Room / Bed & Breakfast
‘Explore the foothills of the Overberg Mountains’
Neither a hotel nor a B&B, Bloomestate is a dwelling that eschews labels. Located in Swellendam in the foothills of the Overberg mountains, seven stylish garden rooms are complemented by a spa, guest lounge, spacious terraces, jacuzzi and swimming pool.
Airy and bright, the luxury garden rooms feature French doors leading to a private patio, and unobstructed views over the garden and mountains beyond. The long beds feature alpaca throws and high-quality percale linens. En suite bathroom with separate bath also feature.
Days 5 – 7: Hog Hollow Country Lodge / Standard Suite / Bed & Breakfast
‘Epic valley & mountain views’
A mere 18km east of the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, along the famous holiday destination of the Garden Route, visitors discover Hog Hollow Country Lodge & Villa, set on the edge of indigenous forest with epic views of the surrounding valleys and Tsitsikamma Mountains. The villa at Hog Hollow is 400 metres from the main Lodge, overlooking the forests and mountains and is ideal for families or three couples travelling.
The sixteen suites are all found in the gardens surrounding the main house. Decorated in earth tones, with hand-crafted objects scattered throughout, all have king size beds (or twin if preferred), a well-stocked mini bar and a hi-fi. Kicj back on your private wooden deck among the garden sounds bristling with life, warmed by the African sun.
Days 7 – 10: Amakhala Safari Lodge / Suite / Fully Inclusive
‘Tune into the sounds of nature’
Safari Lodge is located in a valley of indigenous vegetation at the northern edge of Amakhala Game Reserve. It’s a romantic thatched lodge with luxury safari huts inspired by African tribal artwork. The lodge, with its unique safari huts and signature stone-capped roofs, provides all the home comforts of a luxury lodge and is an tranquil retreat where you can retune body and soul as you tune into the sounds of nature. The view from the safari huts and lounge area takes in the waterhole where monkeys come to cause a splash, and antelope and zebra take a drink. Luxury suites number 11, and come complete with private plunge pools and separate living rooms.
