This one week safari combines the timeless elegance of The Cape Grace Hotel with a wild and wildlife-rich Kalahari safari experience at the exceptional Tswalu Game Reserve. During your stay at Cape Grace, enjoy the Bascule Bar's famed whisky tasting, a sumptuous tasting menu, and uplifting community encounters with the Uthando project.
At Tswalu you can spot lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhino, and maybe even wild dog and oryx. Meerkats are a particular highlight and close encounters with these cheeky critters is an absolute must!
Cape Grace Hotel and Tswalu Kalahari have joined together to provide a safari with impeccable service, comfortable accommodation and fine dining, not to mention top quality locations for the perfect African sundowner.
Cape Grace is a boutique hotel on Cape Town's waterfront offering stunning views and every amenity you could need for the start of your safari. Moving on to Tswalu Kalahari you will enjoy entertaining daily activities in search of South Africa's famed wildlife, followed by pool relaxation and delicious cuisine.
Cape Grace is forward thinking when it comes to hotel sustainability. They founded the Green Grace Committee in order to address their environmental impact while retaining the hotel's high levels of service and indulgence. Economic initiatives have been put in place to minimise impact of the day to day running of the hotel. Cape Grace also supports local non-profit organisations playing a pivotal role in society.
Tswalu Kalahari was taken over by the Oppenheimer family in 1998 and they have put their all into making it a thriving nature reserve. Through breeding programmes and habitat conservation they have increased numbers of endangered species such as sable antelope.
The word 'Tswalu' actually means 'new beginning' and it is the goal of The Tswalu Foundation & the Oppenheimer Story to preserve the Kalahari and restore it to its natural, raw beauty. Each visitor contributes to the ongoing conservation work and eco-tourism model that Tswalu Kalahari lives by.
It is also essential for Tswalu Kalahari that the local community is involved in this conservation. Therefore, through career progression and education the community will benefit from the lodge as well as giving back to nature.
The trip value is £7,200 based on the cost of two persons sharing, excluding international flights.
