Firstly, your city & swamp holiday starts in Cape Town, where you will spend 4 nights staying in a boutique hotel in the city centre. However, apart from an abundance of hospitality, Cape Town city has a lot to offer – from loads of popular local restaurants and shops in the city centre to interesting museums and art galleries dotted around the city. A visit to Cape Town is not complete without a scenic drive along the coastline towards Simon’s Town, where you can swim with the local penguins. Furthermore, another favourite is a sunset trip in the cable car up Table Mountain. Above all, here you can enjoy spectacular views of the city.

Secondly, your next leg of your city & swamp holiday takes you to the much sought after (and not without good reason!) Cape Winelands. Stay 2 nights in Stellenbosch, known for its buzzing atmosphere and beautiful surrounding wine farms. At this point, spend your days exploring the wine farms. Furthermore, in the evenings indulge in the culinary excellence and warm hospitality of the town centre.

Finally, you will head from the Winelands off to Botswana, where the next 3 days will be spent exploring the Okavango Delta. The Delta is one of the seven natural wonders of Africa and receives approximately 11 cubic kilometres of water per year from the annual floods. During the dry winter months, the delta is at its fullest and attracts a large variety of wildlife. In fact, it is known to be one of the areas with the highest concentrations of wildlife during this time! The high concentration of permanent and seasonal wildlife around the Delta include elephant, buffalo, hippo, rhino and a wide variety of buck, as well as predators including lion, cheetah, leopard and the Nile crocodile and a large variety of birdlife. Spending time on several day and night game drives. In addition go on guided nature walks and water excursions (if water levels permit).
