THE ULTIMATE AFRICAN WILDLIFE, WINE AND FOOD SAFARI
TRAVEL SOMMELIER, CAITLIN & DARREN HUMPHREYS
This curated eight-day itinerary is the perfect way to experience the very best of South Africa and Botswana’s diverse offerings—in Travel Sommelier style! You and a guest will explore iconic Cape Town, scenic Cape Winelands, and safari in the Okavango Delta.
Your adventure begins in Cape Town, one of the most visually spectacular cities in the world. During your time in Cape Town, you will tour the Cape Peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope where two great oceans meet; visit seal and penguin colonies; and visit Robben Island and appreciate the country’s diverse history and culture. You will enjoy two nights at the famed five-star luxury Cape Grace hotel located on the waterfront in the heart of the city. Enjoy ‘Raiding the Travel Sommelier Cellar,’ Darren Humphreys’ personal collection which includes many of South Africa’s finest cult wines!
Next, enjoy two nights in the majestic Cape Winelands at the acclaimed Delaire Graff Estate. Set atop a ridge with epic views across breathtaking vineyards, this estate is an ideal launchpad to explore renowned wineries, enjoy cutting-edge gastronomy or simply relax in luxurious surroundings. You will meet vineyard owners and winemakers, enjoy barrel and vintage sampling, and possibly vertical tastings complete with insider back of house access.
