Golf in The Cape
from £2,250 per person
Day 1 - 4 - London - Cape Town
Board an overnight flight to Cape Town from London Heathrow. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel of choice. The Cape in summer is the place to be, with a Mediterranean climate from November to April, sun and sea, and wide variety of places to stay. Attractions abound for the energetic – golf, tennis, walking in the wilderness, climbing Table Mountain – and for the not so energetic – visiting wineries by private arrangement, tours to wildlife reserves and Robben Island, and dining with friends on seafood as fresh as could be. Spend your first full day exploring the V&A Waterfront with its numerous shops and wonderful selection of restaurants, all surrounding Cape Town’s historic port. In the afternoon take the aerial cable car to the top of Table Mountain, where you will enjoy some stunning views and get a better idea of the layout of the surrounding areas. Return to the hotel for cocktails and dinner, head back into Cape Town to sample some of the local cuisine, or arrange a bbq on one of the many stunning beaches.
Day 5 - 8 - Cape Town - George
This morning you will travel to George to start golfing. Upon arrival at the airport you will be met and taken to the Fancourt Hotel, where you will spend three nights. 613 hectares positioned on the magnificent Garden Route, 7km (4miles) from George, Fancourt is South Africa’s premier lifestyle estate with mountains, indigenous forests and the warm Indian Ocean in close proximity. Fancourt is home to some of the finest golf courses in South Africa and is a must for any golf aficionados. There are plenty of other activities such as game viewing by foot and jeep, bird watching the countless species of birds, spa treatments, beach visits or relaxing by the pool.
Day 9 - 11 - George - Durban - Fugitive's Drift
From Durban you will be met by a driver who will take you in an air-conditioned vehicle to the evocative Fugitives’ Drift. Refreshment stops will be made en-route as the drive is four hours. The Zulu War of 1879 is famous throughout the English-speaking world for the great battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. The spectacular Fugitives’ Drift property, a Natural Heritage Site, overlooks both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, and includes the site where Lieutenant Melvill and Lieutenant Coghill lost their lives saving the Queen’s Colour of their regiment. Led by the finest guides in South Africa, thought-provoking and often emotionally charged tours are conducted daily to Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Walks and horse-rides through the reserve to view abundant game and birdlife are offered as well as fishing the 20km (12mile) frontage on the Buffalo River.
