Whether you're visiting South Africa for the safari opportunities in Kruger National Park, to explore the Garden Route or enjoy cosmopolitan Cape Town, South Africa makes a superb luxury holiday destination with a variety of accommodation on offer.
Highly rated by Audley, Lion Sands Private Game Reserve is located in Sabi Sand Wildtuin, which shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park. The suites are vast with private plunge pools overlooking the river and there is a good chance of viewing the Big Five.
A private ranger / photographer can be arranged at Sabi Sabi lodges to help you take the best photos of the wildlife and helicopter rides can be organised over Cape Town from most hotels - fly over Table Mountain rather than joining the crowds in the cable cars!
If staying at Cape Grace, you can take out their private yacht, a luxurious boat that can be hired out for private tours of the harbour. For ultimate luxury, fly the Oppenheimer's private jet from Johannesburg to Tswalu Private Reserve in the Kalahari to arrive in style.
