New itinerary delivers The Blue Train, Cape Town & The Kruger in one luxury escape

African Pride has launched a brand new itinerary for 2014 that allows guests to experience South Africa’s classic highlights in one, luxurious trip. The journey will begin with an overnight stay in Pretoria at the five-star Castello di Monte Guest House – the perfect place to relax after an overnight flight with Virgin Atlantic.

The following morning, guests will board the world-renowned Blue Train. Synonymous with luxurious travel and superb service, the 27-hour journey to Cape Town is an elegant wining and dining experience as holidaymakers see some of the country’s most spectacular scenery pass by their window, before returning to their chic suite with en-suite bathroom and private butler. The train winds its way through the lush Hex River Valley and the Winelands towards the Mother City with its famous Table Mountain.

On arrival in Cape Town, guests will spend five nights at the award-winning Steenberg in the leafy Constantia Valley. Steenberg is one of South Africa’s top boutique hotels complete with two award winning restaurants, a spa, 18 hole championship golf course and its own working winery.

The adventure finishes with a safari, as guests will fly to Motswari, one of the finest private game lodges in the Kruger area, to search for the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant & buffalo).  Located in the heart of the Timbavati Game Reserve, Motswari (meaning “to conserve and protect”) is classic bush lodge with a high four-star rating and has been owned by the Geiger family for over 30 years.  The focus is not just on ticking off its “Big Five”, but on the appreciation of nature and the beauty of this unspoilt indigenous region.

African Pride offers this nine-night package from £2,639 per person. The package includes: one night at Castello di Monte in Pretoria, one night on The Blue Train between Pretoria and Cape Town, five nights at Steenberg in Cape Town and two nights on safari at Motswari Private Game Reserve. This package includes all flights, taxes and transfers. Board is on a bed & breakfast basis, except on The Blue Train which is all inclusive (excluding champagne & caviar) and at Motswari which is full board & game activities. Based on departures during May 2014 but available all year round. Subject to availability. Package includes a complimentary night at Castello di Monte compliments of The Blue Train.
