South Africa is rich in diversity in just about every sense you can imagine making it difficult to narrow down to a few options of what to see or do. From the inspiring leadership of Nelson Mandela to the vibrant culture, natural history, and intriguing wildlife, South Africa has something for everyone.

The South Africa Experience introduces you to the endless jewels of the mysterious continent’s wildlife. You wouldn’t want to miss the eight-day voyage with a group of adventurers. We’ll experience one of the world’s most famous safari parks, tour Cape town as a local, indulge in South Africa’s tastiest food, and so much more. If that’s not fulfilling enough, your cup will definitely run as we unwind for the entire day at Cape Town’s most prestigious spa. Join us in South Africa and get an extraordinary experience!

Day 1
Welcome! You will arrive in Cape Town, South Africa where you’ll meet your CEO. A reserved shuttle will transfer the group to your established accommodations. After checking in and freshening up, you will meet your group of travel friends and head out into town for a welcome dinner where we’ll toast to the lux journey ahead!

Meals Included: Dinner

Day 2
For your first full day in Cape Town, enjoy a tour of the Mother City from all aspects. Uncover the history, the people, their cultures, their cuisines, and the artisanal trends of Cape Town during your walking tour through the city. Your guide will show you all the main highlights, bring you to gorgeous viewpoints, and teach you about the history of this astonishing city.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 3
The moment has come to see the Big 5! You will rise early and travel to Aquila Game Reserve to embark on a 3-hour, guided open-vehicle safari in search of the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and the African buffalo. Along with the wildlife, the nature reserve is a stunning piece of nature, tranquil and lovely for a sunset. To add to the excitement, after lunch you’ll hop on a quad bike (or horse) and begin an adrenaline ride with a guided safari specialist.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 4
The fun doesn’t stop! South Africa is home to one of the oldest wine countries outside Europe. Sip your day away through Cape Town Winelands. Your day will consist of several wine-tasting tours in various regions combined with relaxation, food, and good company.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 5
On this day in Cape Town, you’ll explore more of the city’s exquisite coastline, while taking in the sights. Visiting beautiful Boulder Beach you’ll have the chance to go to the only place in the world where you get close to African Penguins. Before heading back to your accommodation to freshen up before dinner, you’ll take an exciting cable car up to Table Mountain, the most iconic landmark in South Africa.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 6
Rest and relax the entire day away at Cape Town’s most sought-after wellness retreat and relaxation hideaway. You’ll experience a truly relaxed state of mind and body from well-trained therapists. Be greeted by the indoor heated swimming pool, enticing you to enjoy leisurely laps and a bubbling Jacuzzi. Enjoy the day in a private relaxation lounge, a sauna, a steam room, a mist room, and a fully-equipped fitness room. A day packed with pampering is bound to build up an appetite so you’ll break for Sunday brunch where you’ll indulge in the heart of the Cape Winelands with the very best in fresh and artisan meals.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 7
After breakfast, your day is at your leisure to do any last-minute shopping or sightseeing.

However, you may not want to miss out on this optional fear-seeking adventure. That’s right, some will be shark-cage diving. On this excursion, you will meet one of nature’s most feared predators, the great white shark. Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or not, shark cage diving can be done by all without any diving certifications necessary.

You will meet back up with the group and be immersed in African cuisine mixed with some of the best local food and flavors for your farewell dinner.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 8
All great things must come to an end, but only until our next lux experience. You will be transferred to Cape Town airport, where you will bid your “safe travels” to your new LNT friends and “goodbye” to South Africa!

Meals Included: Breakfast

This South African Experience is curated particularly for those who wish to learn, explore, and unwind. Here are a few points to know:

Accommodations
This trip offers two accommodation options: double occupancy and single occupancy (limited availability). If you are traveling with us solo and elect for double occupancy, you will be paired with another LNT member based on your preferences. All rooms are single-gendered unless preferenced. If you are traveling with a friend, be sure to inform us so that we can pair the two of you together. Should you elect a single-occupancy room (for an additional charge), please note that the space is limited and are on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • Double-occupancy: $2,759
  • Single-occupancy: $3,179 

Airfare
Airfare is not included in this excursion. You will need to purchase your flight separately, however, we are here to assist you. Airport details will be included in your welcome letter.

Meals
All meals are included on your trip unless stated otherwise, on the itinerary. We will experience the best of South Africa’s cuisine and although we will make every effort to accommodate dietary and particular needs, it is important to come with an open mind. Important Note: Tips are not included in your trip. Please allow for an additional $150 to $200 for tips. All our partners have worked hard on providing you with the best service. Should you have a problem tipping the tour guides, waiters/waitresses, hotel staff, and anyone who LNT has selected to help make this experience great, then perhaps this trip isn’t the best fit for you.

Activities
We’ve curated this experience for the adventurer who is seeking a splash of rest and relaxation. Because face it, we all love a good spa day. With that said, most of our activities are active. We require that you are physically able to walk at least 5 miles per day without assistance. Should you opt-out of any activity or portion of the trip, you will not receive any refund.

Optional Activities
Shark-cage diving is an optional activity on this trip. The cost of this activity is not included in the price of the excursion. You will have the opportunity to register for this experience after your initial payment.

Travel Documents

Passport
Guests are required to hold a passport for all international trips with at least six months of validity from the last day of the trip. The airlines may deny travel, and the passport officials may refuse entry if you try to travel with a passport that expires under six months. LNT will make every effort to verify passport validity; however, this is the responsibility of the guest.

Visa
This destination does not require a visa.

Covid Test & Vaccinations
Currently, South Africa does require a negative COVID-19 test result not older than 72 hours from the time of departure. Due to the vast changes in government policies worldwide, please visit the official government page here. Although South Africa does not require visitors to be vaccinated, LNTravels does require guests to be fully vaccinated to participate in this trip or a negative Covid-19 test 72-hours before departure.

Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is a type of short-term insurance that protects the financial investment in a trip and may include coverage for lost baggage, trip cancellation, flight accident, and/or other losses incurred before or while traveling. Should your trip be canceled or interrupted for a covered reason, a travel insurance policy will reimburse you for the eligible pre-paid and non-refundable portions of your trip.

We hope that all of our guests can accompany us on this experience. Unfortunately, circumstances can arise that could cause you to cancel or interrupt your trip. We understand how disappointing it is to be forced to cancel your trip prior to departing. To avoid financial and emotional anxiety, travel protection is highly recommended but not required to participate in an LNT experience. If you choose not to purchase travel insurance/trip protections, LNT will not be responsible for penalties or fees should you cancel.

We’ve partnered with Safety Wing to bring you an affordable travel insurance option. However, you are free to choose any insurance company that suits you best.

Trip Payment & Payment Plans
Each trip and destination is specially curated and therefore offers a unique payment plan. If you are unable to pay the full amount upfront, monthly payments are available. Just secure your trip with your down payment and then the remaining payments start the following month on the same day of each month.

Please note: All payments are subject to a processing fee

Refund & Cancellation Policy All guests (with the exception of special promotion bookings) have 48 hours from the time of booking to cancel a trip for a full refund. After the 48-hour booking period, all trip deposits are non-refundable.

Any cancellation of a booking by a guest must be delivered to LNT in writing and be acknowledged by LNT in writing. For an abundance of clarity and to avoid any miscommunication, we will not consider a reservation canceled until we receive an email from you. In the unfortunate circumstance that you need to cancel your trip, based on the date you notify us by email of the cancellation, we will refund the balance, less the deposit and the following fees per trip:

Number of Days Prior to TripTrip Cancellation Fee 
 200+ days $500
 91-199 days  75% non-refundable
 0 - 90 days 100% non-refundable

$99 Deposit Promotion: All trip sales are final. New registrations made during a $99 deposit offer are ineligible for a refund/trip transfer. All payments made are nonrefundable.

Although we recommend travel insurance to ensure you are protected in the event of a medical or family emergency we encourage you to opt for the “cancel for any reason” coverage, specifically. Should you need to recover any of your non-refundable expenses, you can file a claim with your travel insurance.

Please read the full booking terms and conditions here before booking your experience.

This was a wonderful trip, I wouldn't hesitate to book another with Lux Nomad! I loved the fact that the trip was well organized and included well throughout activities for each day. One could just get up and get ready, knowing that each day would be just as exciting, as the last. The accommodations were good and centrally located for maximum exposure to city life in Cape Town. Antoinette, the host was very attentive and made sure everyone had anything they needed during the trip.

I have been sharing my amazing experience with family and friends since I returned! I can truly say, this is one of the best travel experiences, fabulous, fun filled, exciting, peaceful, beautiful, adventurous (and I can go on and on lol) trips I have ever had in my entire life! (And might I add… with a group of like-minded strangers!) The connection with you and everyone else made it even more special😄 I thank you for manifesting your vision, and allowing me to share the SA experience with you. I will absolutely leave my feedback on Facebook, and you can definitely count me in on future trips. WELL DONE! PHENOMENAL WOMEN!

An AaaaMazing Trip! What an awesome group of travelers. We're ready for another. This was our first International group trip! From beginning to end we enjoyed our well organized trip with LNT. Our host Antoinette answered any and all questions we had prior & during our trip, right down to giving tips on wardrobe for the climate in SA. Many thanks to our host for the attentiveness, professionalism and overall energy. Annnnd....to add we're 50+ snowbird travelers who are empty~nesters, we had a BLAST with these youngsters. We'd most definitely travel LNT again in the future!

This trip was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. From the food to the people to the experiences, I don't think it could have been more great. This trip was filled with so many memorable moments. I enjoyed being able to do and see things that I would not normally get to. The host made sure everyone felt comfortable and happy. This trip will be hard to top but I will be back every single time even if its a fraction of what I got to experience this time around. Keep being great, for this to be the first LNT trip, I can't even imagine how much better I know it will be.

LNT provided a first-class luxury experience. From being welcomed with customized goodies to being wined and dined in five star restaurants and wineries, the experience was bar none “LUXURIOUS.” Along with the excursions, the best part of the trip was having the opportunity to meet wonderful people. The bond the trip attendees made was amazing. I give LNT five stars!

I found LuxNomad Travels through its founder on YouTube. I had always wanted to travel but never really had the courage. I saw LuxNomads Travels advertisement about going to South Africa and decided to take the plunge and book the trip. I was afraid, but I’m so happy I did it anyways.

From start to finish the host was AMAZING! She made sure that I was comfortable and prepared for my first international group trip. She had zoom calls for Q&A, multiple emails to tell you about the policies and procedures of flying into South Africa. She made sure that no one would be left behind. This even soothed my nerves as I knew I wasn’t going to know anyone there. Throughout the trip, the host and other guests were sweet, caring, and fun to be around. Although they were strangers to me at first, I was able to build bonds with each of them and I believe that was due to LuxNomad Travels being considerate of choosing like-minded people.

This was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken in my entire life. I will be using LuxNomad Travels again on future trips. I would recommend LuxNomad Travels to everyone - amazing customer service, efficient and reliable.
