On one of your days here, you will take a guided tour to the nearby Cape Winelands. South Africa is today one of the major producers and exporters of wines worldwide, and has been producing wine since the middle of the 17th century. The Cape Winelands region is set amongst rolling mountain slopes and valleys, with classic colonial style architecture which is some of the oldest surviving in South Africa. There are literally scores of wine estates, and going on this tour will give you the chance to go on a voyage of discovery and find new favourites.

The 5* Sabi Sabi Selati is situated in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park and is a tangible reminder of the grand steam train era. Railway museums and storerooms yielded authentic memorabilia which have been artfully incorporated into the décor of the camp, blending creatively with sumptuous furnishings, antiques and rich linens, to create Selati’s ambience. Each of the 7 suites, romantically named after long-gone railway stations, is intimate and comfortable. 'Out of Africa' styling, en-suite bathrooms, and cleverly concealed air-conditioning and electricity maintain the historical theme.
Unforgettable day and night safaris are enjoyed in open safari vehicles with close encounters with the Big 5 being a regular occurrence. Environmental awareness walking safaris add an extra dimension to the bush experience, allowing a close-up look at the fascinating smaller creatures of the bushveld.
