Top 5 luxury South African tours

From the sun-kissed vines of the Stellenbosch region to the game-filled plains of Kruger National Park, South Africa is wild and broad, beautiful and entertaining. Cape Town and Johannesburg are the two big cities, and they are worlds apart in their style. Cape Town is more debonair, overlooked by the calm presence of Table Mountain, meanwhile, Jo’burg presents South Africa’s rawer, more honest face, with the country’s problems laid bare. Between these two points are vast expanses of wilderness, filled with remarkable wildlife.

The distance between these two cities is 1,400km (870 miles), if driven without detours to some of the country’s many other fine destinations. For those who love to be behind the wheel on the open road, and indeed who enjoy all the logistics that come with such a voyage, South Africa can be a good challenge to plan. However, a good tour will take care of many of the specifics so that you can travel in relative luxury. Here are five of the best luxury tours of South Africa.
