If you are after a journey to explore some of South Africa’s lesser-seen destinations, then this is the itinerary for you. Travel to Cape Town and whether this is your first, second or third visit, we’re sure there is more still to explore from Kirstenbosch Gardens to District Six and Constantia to the Silvermine Nature Reserve waterfall. Leaving the city you make your way into the Cederberg Mountains where you can walk through the reserve, explore the Bushman Rock art and paddle a canoe down the river. Travelling further north, you reach Namaqualand, famous for its spring flowers (Aug-Oct) and coastal scenery. Heading inland, you have an overnight in Upington before arriving in the southern Kalahari Desert for a safari experience like no other – reclining in comfort, with the most amazing backdrop, at Tswalu Kalahari.
