You might think it is too early to think about Valentine’s Day? But if you want to make it special then the time to act is now! Extraordinary Journeys has done the planning for you and put together a romantic South Africa Safari that is sure to sweep your special someone off their feet. Their 8-day Romantic South Africa Safari features four days at Cape Town’s luxurious Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa before heading out to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve for a traditional safari.
The price for this program for January and February 2016 is $3800 per person sharing. The package includes 7 nights’ accommodation (including one free night at Twelve Apostles, complimentary room upgrade, romantic picnic and other surprises), internal flights (Cape Town to Skukuza; Sabi Sabi to Johannesburg), transfers, meals, activities and, best of all, a complimentary 7 minute helicopter tour over Cape Town for those who book by January 15, 2015.
A five star boutique hotel, Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is dramatically poised on the slopes of the Twelve Apostles mountain range just outside the suburb of Camps Bay with breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean.
The 70 rooms and suites have uninterrupted sea or mountain views and interiors are light and airy inspired by the natural surrounds. Rooms are en-suite and feature king size beds, bathrobes and slippers, and all the in-room amenities. With state of the art facilities, guests enjoy a choice of fine dining in the Azure Restaurant, the Café Grill for lighter meals, the Leopard Bar or a dinner and movie evening in the private cinema. There is an award winning Spa, a heated infinity pool and Jacuzzi.
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a 139,000-acre reserve, formed in 1950 that shares 31 miles of unfenced boundary with Kruger National Park. This unfenced border means that animals are able to wonder in and out as they wish. The Sand and Sabi Rivers supply much needed water in the dry season, creating an eco-system with one of the highest and most bio-diverse wildlife populations in Southern Africa.
Spotting the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, buffalo and elephant) is almost guaranteed. While staying in Sabi Sabi you will have the choice of Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, Sabi Sabi Selati or Sabi Sabi Bush Camp depending on your preference and availability. All three properties are in the same reserve and have access to the same outstanding game-viewing.
