Gilt City South Africa Adventure
11 Days, 8 Nights
The luxury starts when you board your Emirates flight to Johannesburg, via Dubai. It is often said that Emirates coach class cabin is equal to other airlines’ premium economy class cabins. On arrival in Johannesburg, the commercial and political hub of South Africa, you will spend two nights at Peermont Mondior Hotel, located in the glamorous Emperors Palace complex. You have time to explore this pulsating city.
Then you’re off to the bush, in search of The Big Five, and other wildlife. Your three nights at Marataba, which enjoys exclusive use of one of the most game rich and beautiful areas of the Waterberg, will leave you with memories of gourmet meals under the stars, recounting stories of the days sightings, sundowners sipped while savoring the panoramic views from the escarpment, and down time in your tented suite, listening to the river running below.
Cape Town, a stunning city on par with Rio, Sydney and San Francisco, is your last port of call. There is no better place to be based than the More Quarters Hotel, where you have a spacious One Bedroom Luxury Apartment for three nights.
