Tours to South Africa
The very best of tours to South Africa
South Africa is a country with millions of faces and landscapes, and some do not hesitate to describe it as "the whole world in one country".
From the Cederberg Mountains to the Kruger Park, through the Kalahari desert and along the Wild Coast of KwaZulu-Natal or from Table Mountain to the Lost World of Sun City, South Africa is so vast that it is impossible to see everything in a short space of time.
It is for this reason that the very best way to experience this collection of magnificent landscapes is simply to contemplate them from the sky.
A flying safari is both unique and magical as it will transport you from a sandy desert to a mountain valley in a heartbeat. You will fly not only over herds of animals, lakes and waterfalls, but also above vibrant cities, cultivated plains, remote villages, wild coasts, and at each step you will experience breathtaking landscapes.
This flying safari is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime privilege you can indulge in, because of its unmatched and exclusive routes and options and will most definitely change your view of our world.

Flying wine tour

You will discover many vineyards in the Constantia or Stellenbosch regions, all of them within superb valleys. During the flight, you will taste some of the top 10 wines made in South Africa, selected and explained by our French sommelier. He will also give you historical and geological information for better understanding of the influence of the soils and the position of the vines, and consequently, on the difference between wines. A rare knowledge to better understand the world of wine!
The flight will continue along the Wine Route, which stretches toward the East of the « Western Cape » region, which you will see from an unusual angle. The Paarl Mountains, the Franschhoek Valley or the lovely village of Robertson will reveal their hidden secrets and it will probably be far from what you have ever expected! We will land one-and-a-half hours later on the private airstrip on De Hoop Nature Reserve, a kind of paradise near Cape Agulhas. We will do our second wine tasting during a delicious "food & wine pairing".
The third and last wine tasting will take place during the afternoon flight, and you will taste the Best "Cap Classique", with some entremets. Our return flight will take us over the Wine route again, but specifically over its southern part, where you will be able to see different vineyards in the Elgin or Hermanus regions.

You will fly over the Western Cape Province, the most popular area in South Africa and more specifically, over the Wine Route.

Two hours later, you will land among the Cederberg Mountains and you will spend the night in a vast nature reserve where the bedrooms are carved into the mountain stone.
This place is unique. There is something very powerful about these rooted giants of stone, something out of this world. A professional guide will lead you through the Reserve and it is with silent admiration that you will discover the wilderness. Back at the lodge, a massage awaits you, followed by a delicious dinner around a campfire.
In the morning, you will embark on a walking safari and enjoy a hearty breakfast served amidst the rocks, in the wild bush. The walk will continue in the footsteps of the Bushmen and you will see superbly conserved 6000-year-old magnificent cave paintings.
After a light lunch, we will take off again to the east along the superb Garden Route, where we will fly over the Franschhoek Valley or above the sea, and you will be able to appreciate the freedom that a private flying safari offers...

The second stage will take you to the Northern Cape Region where you will discover the magnificent Augrabies Falls, the fifth largest waterfalls in the world by volume of water. This was a sacred place for the original inhabitants - the Khoïs - who called it 'the place of great sound'. The Orange River's waters, which run through the protected, preserved and wild national park, are taken in by Augrabies and it is a sight which few people have the chance to discover.
After a short rest in your luxurious lodge, you will take off again in the afternoon along the Namibian border and will appreciate the Fish River Canyon, second largest canyon in the world.

Your accommodation, a member of "Relais & Chateaux", is located in the heart of the largest private game reserve in South Africa - 100 000 km2 - which you can explore on horseback. This is a great experience to get close to wild animals, those that can survive in this semi-arid climate, from the Big Five to very rare species of birds. You will fly again just to say goodnight to the stars, enjoy the sunset from up there and never stop to admire the artistic tones of the African bush.

The fourth leg of your safari will fly you to a new kind of grandeur, that of Sun City.

Welcome to the world where everything, absolutely everything, is oversized. An unexpected and unique destination which we invite you to enjoy completely and without any hesitation!
Stage 5: Majestic Kruger
We leave the vibrant atmosphere of Sun City to land in the Kruger National Park, where this time, wildlife is master and human being foreigner.

More than 140 species of mammals, 119 of reptiles, 517 of birds and 1980 of plants live in total freedom in this protected area.

You will receive a warm and unreserved welcome from the hosts at the superb lodge where you will sleep and will once again spend a very exclusive evening and night.
Stage 7: The secret of the elephants
The last part of the safari will introduce you to the elephants at Addo Park in the Eastern Cape. It is the 3rd largest park in the country and is situated 72 km from Port Elizabeth.
