Ain't love grand
Days 1–3: Cape Town
With the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Table Mountain standing sentinel on other, Cape Town isn’t short on dramatic views. Down on the white-sand beaches, sizeable swells feed a thriving surf culture, but the cosmopolitan city offers equal for potential for fine wining and dining, which is often far more friendly on the wallet than you might think.
HotelCape View Clifton
StyleUrban beach house
SettingCliffside Clifton Beaches
Cape View Clifton sits on prime beachfront that’s sheltered by Table Mountain. From the hotel’s decked pool area, you look out to the ocean and the coast to the majestic Twelve Apostles; needless to say, the sunsets are a thing to behold. The service is warm-hearted and the rooms have a luxurious, home-from-home feel.

Days 4–7: Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Set just off from the vast plains of Kruger National Park, Sabi Sand is a private game reserve home to a role call of Africa's most majestic critters: lions; zebras; giraffes; elephants; cheetahs – all the crew.
StyleHobbit houses and stilted suites
SettingWilderness of winning game
RoomRock Cliff Room
Ulusaba’s luxurious accommodation comes in two styles: conical-roofed houses or treehouse-style suites, both of which are set high on a koppie (hill), looking out across vast tracts of game-rich savannah below. Candlelit dinners bring the best of Africa's seasonal produce to the table – you’ll likely find the traditional braai (barbecue) to be a culinary highlight of your stay.
Smith ExtraA personalised Ulusaba Encountered book – a picture-laden guide to the reserve
Days 7–14: Mauritius
At just 2,030sq km, Mauritius is a fairly small country, but it packs a big cultural punch as a result of multiple colonists (Dutch, French and English) and seafaring settlers from Africa, China, India and more. The landscape is just as impressive: a mountainous and lushly forested interior leads to white-sand beaches and the warm Indian Ocean, where you’ll find coral reefs teeming with sealife.
HotelConstance Prince Maurice
StyleThatch and glitz
Luxury resort Constance Prince Maurice uses the island’s coastline to its full advantage, placing its charming, bure-roofed suites along a green-fringed lagoon. Decked walkways lead you to floating bars and restaurants ideally positioned for watching the sun setting over the water. After dark, each buildings stands out like a stilted lantern.
Smith ExtraA fruit basket, bottle of wine (champagne for GoldSmiths) and for GoldSmiths staying five nights or more, a 30-minute back or foot massage each
When to go
Toto was right – sometimes the rains do fall in Africa, specifically from November to March. For clement temperatures and more chance of The Lion King in real life scenes at the watering-hole, visit in April or May.
Book flights to Cape Town International, the trip’s starting point, and out from Mauritius’ Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam airport. Our Smith24 tem are on hand round the clock to book your travel, if needed. All inland travel is included in a blissfully air-conditioned car with a personal, English-speaking driver; there are two short domestic flights, too.
You’ll need a deep suitcase for this trip: pack stylish city wear for the first few days in Cape Town, then swap your city swag for safari gear while in Sabi Sand Game Reserve. An abundance of beachwear is all you’ll need in Mauritius.
