Travel Challenge: A ‘twixmas’ break in Britain
Friday 21 December 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer their best deal for a specific break. Today: a South African fly-drive adventure in 2013. Prices are per person, based on two travelling together. Each includes car hire, 10 nights' accommodation and flights from Heathrow in the final week of January.
Includes BA flights to Cape Town on 26 January and B&B hotels on the “Classical South Africa” self-drive. “This trip offers a taster of South Africa, including the Winelands, Knysna and Plettenburg Bay, and then a flight to Kwa Madwala Private Game Reserve to enjoy a safari experience,” says Nicky Betts (01306 747008; kuoni.co.uk).
Includes SAA flights to Johannesburg on 29 January and mixed-board in four Kruger wildlife lodges. “The highlight is three nights on a fully-inclusive basis in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, acclaimed as one of South Africa’s premier safari locations,” says Anthea Myburgh (020-7112 0019; fleewinter.com).
Includes Qatar Airways flights to Cape Town on 27 January and B&B at the Ritz-Carlton in Cape Town, Les Baleins in Hermanus, Lake Pleasant Living in Knysna, and full-board at Rippons Safari Lodge. “The Garden Route offers vastly contrasting landscapes, from picturesque shoreline to beautiful reserves,” says Tiffany Cope (020-7368 1200; trailfinders.com).
