Leading travel specialist, WEXAS, is showcasing some outstanding deals on its luxury South Africa holidays, with a selection of fantastic tours to choose from.
The renowned travel club, founded in 1970, has multiple offers available, which could save travellers hundreds of pounds on their next trip.
Once such tour is the Cape Town & Winelands Experience, which current has an enticing seven nights for the price of five when travelling between 1 May and 30 June 2012.
Cape Town is one of the world's finest cities. Situated on the west coast of South Africa , it has a plenitude of sights and activities to absorb, and is an ideal location from which to explore the Winelands and the infamous Garden Route .
With Table Mountain looming over the city and Robben Island a short ferry ride from the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is bursting with cultural and historic sights to explore.
Hiring a car to travel the 60km along the Cape Peninsula is an absolute must, as one of the most breath-taking coastal drives in the world.
Taking in the quaint, naval base that is Simon's Town, the pretty fishing harbour of Kalk , and the incredible penguin colony at Boulders Beach , this journey is truly exceptional. There aren't many places you can swim alongside penguins in their natural habitat.
WEXAS can arrange stays at many of the best hotels in Cape Town , with a plethora of these being in the trendy Camps Bay area. With winding roads framed by luxury, waterfront apartments, Camps Bay is rich in chic and stylish shops and restaurants.
Departing Cape Town and commencing the journey east along the Garden Route , you'll soon find yourself in South Africa 's world-class Winelands, and the country's charming, culinary capital of Franschhoek.
Home to 70 per cent of the country's top restaurants, Le Quartier Francais and La Petite Ferme are just two of the stunning gourmet hot spots.
The patchwork of award-winning vineyards spanning Franschhoek and nearby Stellenbosch, provides the perfect opportunity to indulge in wine-tasting tours, which can be organised by WEXAS as a group or on an individual basis.
Onwards from the Winelands, coastal towns Knysna and Plettenburg Bay provide the ideal spots to enjoy some of the finest seafood while taking in wonderfully inspiring vistas before completing the Garden Route at Port Elizabeth .
As a tailor-made holiday specialist, WEXAS can plan your luxury holiday to your own personal specification. Incorporating a safari to Kruger National Park or a beach stay in Mauritius are two of the most popular ways to round-off this trip.
