Our beautiful continent awaits to welcome you once more

We are absolutely thrilled that Africa is open once more for exploration across this incredible and diverse continent. As South Africa and Botswana are both removed from the UK’s ‘red list’, embark on a long-awaited trip of a lifetime… An opportunity to reconnect with those closest to us, to touch the soil of Africa once again and to feel the warmth of the African sunshine.

Our guests’ wellbeing and wellness of the spirit has never been so important. With this in mind we have carefully crafted experiences to touch the soul and enrich the heart, whilst ensuring that our stringent safety and sanitation protocols are at the heart of our operations.

This is truly such a special time of the year and, with the positive news of the vaccine rollouts and the end of winter around the corner, the arrival of spring signals new hope and new beginnings for us all.

Come and discover, whether for the first time or returning home to one of our beautiful destinations and properties, and explore the serenity of the Cederberg Mountains at Bushmans Kloof where the surrounding wilderness is currently carpeted in a magnificent display of spring flowers. The iridescent sunrises over the ocean at The Oyster Box and sunsets at The Twelve Apostles set the sky aflame in a beautiful carnival of colour, while Xigera Safari Lodge in Botswana is pioneering the art of safari amidst the beauty of the Okavango Delta.

Our family-owned vineyard, Bouchard Finlayson in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley (Heaven and Earth), Hermanus, is also a beautiful destination for world-class wines and indigenous ‘fynbos’.

We hope to provide inspiration below as you begin to plan your travels around our continent once more. Our teams are waiting to welcome you and ensure you have the most special, memorable and safe stay with us…
