South Africa

With striking Table Mountain as a backdrop, beautiful beaches and a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere, there’s little wonder why Cape Town is always top of the city bucket-list! It’s the go-to South African city when it comes to beaches and cool coastal lifestyle, and what’s more, there are so many fabulous boutique beach hideaways and wave-watching boltholes popping up all along the Cape Peninsula’s coastline. The beauty of Cape Town is that everywhere is within driving distance.

South Africa’s acclaimed stylish safari lodges are only a flight away.
