A message from our Tour Director on the ground in SA


Greetings from a sunny and happy Cape Town.

Why happy? Because Cape Town and South Africa are once again open for business and it is one of the reasons that everyone here is smiling.

Lovely restaurants, beautiful beaches, game parks ,wine estates, new and refurbished hotels are all waiting with open arms to welcome visitors to our shores. Add to this a very favorable exchange rate and it all makes for an exciting holiday experience.

What a welcome site it was for me this morning to once again see tour buses travelling down one of the scenic routes to Cape Point, loaded with tourists. Something that has sadly been missing for nearly two years.

If it is a sporting experience that you are after then there are some exciting events on the horizon.

January 7th and 8th we have The L’Ormarins Queens Plate to be run at Kenilwoth Race Course and on the 29thJanuary the Sun International Metropolitan Handcap. Both events are major highlights on our Cape summer racing calendar.

Racing not your preference then how about the Rugby Sevens which will be held in Cape Town from the 9th – 11th September.

A trip to South Africa has so much to offer from a few rounds of golf on some magnificent courses to spending a few nights at a game park where you will see the Big 5 up close and personal.

In the coming weeks we will be providing a few tasty itineraries for these events which we hope will whet your appetite and encourage you to visit our lovely country.

With a fair following wind I will be updating my blog every two weeks but if there are any questions or suggestions you might have then please just email me and I will get back to you.

In the meantime don’t forget our hosted tours to the Caribbean in March.

The way the England team are playing the outcome of both of the series could be very pleasing.

Until the next time stay safe
