    South Africa Adventure: Trip Recap

    The wonder of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">South Africa </a>is the dramatic and irresistible diversity of its cultures, landscapes and wildlife. Two of our longtime guests who have taken 13 trips with us, Terry and Dotty, explored the beauties of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/blog/tag/South%20Africa/" target="_blank">Cape Town</a>, enjoyed the famous wines of the<a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/blog/tag/South%20Africa/" target="_blank"> South African Winelands</a> and searched for <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">The Big Five</a>—the elephant, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, lion, and leopard—on a three-day safari experience during their recent trip to South Africa with Classic Journeys. Here is a quick trip recap of their adventure that has us all adding this destination to our bucket lists. <br><br><b>Day 1 - Cape Town </b><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Cape Town</a> is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with sheer cliffs that fall into the cold sapphire-colored waters of the Atlantic to the west of the city mixing with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean to the east. Since its founding in 1652, the city&#39;s culture and architecture have been influenced by the indigenous groups, the Dutch and the British. Dotty and Terry explored the historical city with local Cape Town guide, Clive, and stopped for high tea at the famously painted pink Mount Nelson Hotel, located at the foot of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/blog/tag/South%20Africa/" target="_blank">Table Mountain</a>. Following lunch, they walked along <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Lions Head Trail</a> and took in the sweeping views of the coastal city. After a lengthy walk and day of exploration, they enjoyed a dinner of fresh seafood in a restaurant on the city&#39;s famous Bree Street. <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXX0" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Day 2 -  Cape of Good Hope </b><br><br>The day started with a southward guided drive with their local guide, Clive, over<a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"> Chapman&#39;s Peak Drive</a>, an engineering marvel that hugs the cliffs and offers jaw-dropping ocean views. The day was dedicated to exploring the historic <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Cape of Good Hope</a> where the Portuguese navigators once sailed in the 15th century. They walked on trails high above the ocean and stopped to enjoy the views over a glass of champagne. Clive recounted that while admiring the coastal views over champagne, a baboon snuck up and stole their cooler of waters providing for some laughs (at least it didn&#39;t steal the bubbly!). They then visited <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Boulder Beach</a>, home to the largest colony of endangered African penguins as well as the famous <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens</a>, home to more than 7,000 plant species. Their day ended with a lovely dinner at Karibu restaurant, located along the city&#39;s Wharf. <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXWq" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXWv" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Day 3 - Cultural Townships &amp; Robben Island</b> <br><br>In order to learn more about modern South Africa and the path the country has taken since apartheid, it&#39;s essential to visit the townships located in the peripheries of the city. Clive guided Dotty and Terry through the cultural townships and they had the chance to gain insights into South African culture that is hard to find anywhere else. They were then invited into a small school, where they delivered soup ingredients and met a class of South African children who were excited to sing for them and chat about their lives. They also had the chance to speak with a traditional healer in the area and even try a taste of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">home-brewed African beer</a>. In the afternoon, they had the chance to visit <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-family-adventure-tours/" target="_blank">Robben Island,</a> where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for almost 20 years in an attempt to silence his anti-apartheid voice. Today, the island is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a symbol of the transformative power of forgiveness. <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-family-adventure-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXX5" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><br><b>Day 4 &amp; 5 - The Cape Winelands </b><br><br>Over the next two days, Clive guided Dotty and Terry to the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Cape Winelands</a> where they stayed in <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Stellenbosch</a>, the capital of the Winelands. The Winelands are a premier location to walk through vineyards and enjoy the lovely olive orchards over chats with locals of the excellent South African cuisine. During their guided cuisine walks, they tasted fresh bread from the ovens of an artisanal baker, snacked at a family-run butchery, tasted wines at a lively wine bar in the area, and finally, sampled Cape deserts with a side of the locally grown teas. <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXWg" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Day 6, 7, and 8 - Safari </b><br><br>On day six, Dotty and Terry parted with Clive in Cape Town and flew to eastern South Africa where they began their<a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"> three-day Safari</a>. They settled into their luxurious and comfortable lodge on the grounds of the <a href="https://www.andbeyond.com/destinations/africa/south-africa/kwazulu-natal/phinda-private-game-reserve/" target="_blank">Phinda Private Game Preserve</a>, looking out on the wild terrain where they searched for opportunities to view <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-family-adventure-tours/" target="_blank">The Big Five</a> - the elephant, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, lion, and leopard. With chances to go on daily game drives, bush walks, Zulu village tours, black rhino safaris, and more, Dotty and Terry were not disappointed with the South African safari experience you only hear about in storybooks.  <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXWl" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxzj&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zXWb" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Day 9 - Final Day</b> <br><br>With time for a final drive in the morning, Terry and Dotty spotted a few more wildebeests and South African birds before departing the gorgeous <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Phinda Private Reserve</a> and heading towards home to tell tales of the many animals they spotted on safari, the wonders of Cape Town, the delicacies of the Winelands, and so much more.<br><br>If you&#39;re interested in a trip like Terry and Dotty&#39;s, take a look at our <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-walking-tour/" target="_blank">South Africa Culture + Walking Tour</a> for the chance to experience a trip of a lifetime in South Africa.

    South Africa Safari... and Far, Far More

    As you may have heard, penguins are nowhere on or even near the list of the Big Five animals that make up the Holy Grail of an <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">African safari</a>. Elephants, rhinos and Cape buffalo would trample them. Any lion or leopard would see a beach full of black-and-white appetizers. But if you’re ready to make your bucket-list safari happen, it’s worth remembering that there’s much more to Africa than the alpha animals of the veldt. Travelers who invest all of their time in the deep wilds only scratch the surface of what the continent has to offer.<br><br>The country of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">South Africa</a> is the perfect place to realize your Big Five safari fantasies and to counter-balance them with sightings that are just as amazing: Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope, vineyard trails that lead to world-class wine tastings, the teeming townships that have risen in the wake of apartheid and—yes—penguins. You can have it all on this new <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Classic Journeys</a> trip without committing to the weeks of travel time that many safaris entail.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="Group of penguins going into the water" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T0000026SeP&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T0000012DKv" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br>Of course, the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">safari days</a> are just what you hoped they would be. You’ll be in the Phinda Private Game Preserve, native habitat for lions, leopards, elephants, Cape buffalo and rhinos... as well as other species such as cheetahs. What’s unique about Phinda is how the Indian Ocean has influenced the climate, creating seven distinct ecosystems in closer proximity than almost anywhere else. The animals you came to see live naturally within easy range. From <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">your luxury lodge</a> within the preserve—complete with spectacular chalets, swimming pools and fine cuisine—you go for drives and walks with the highest chance of success that you’ll witness the animal behavior and get the photos you hoped for. (The big regret of many safari veterans is the endless hours they spent in Land Rovers without ever spotting a leopard.)<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="Leopard on a termite mound" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T0000026SeP&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T0000012DL5" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br>The <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">safari </a>is the climax of this carefully curated trip, but it’s hardly the only high point. You start in Cape Town, rightly known as one of the world’s most beautiful cities, as you’ll see for yourself on the cable car ride to the top of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Table Mountain</a>. Some of the most important chapters in the history of apartheid were written here. You’ll visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for nearly 20 years. Your expert local guide will be candid about the social impacts of the policy and take you for a revealing visit to Langa, the oldest of the cultural townships erected after apartheid. In the spirit of ubuntu—humanity towards others—you’ll deliver soup ingredients to the kitchen of a small school and meet the children.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="View from Table Mountain at sunset" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T0000026SeP&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T0000012DL0" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br>One of the most momentous geographic spots on earth is the Cape of Good Hope where 15th-century Portuguese navigators first reached the turning point around <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">Africa’s southern tip</a>. You’ll see it from high above from a walking trail at Cape Point. Nearby on Boulder Beach, you’ll come face-to-face with the flock of African penguins that nest there. You’ll also settle into Stellenbosch, the town at the heart of the Cape Winelands. World-class vineyards sweep across scenic hills in an endless patchwork. You’ll take a lovely walk on a wine estate in the Franschhoek Valley and enjoy tastings in boutique wineries. How perfect is it that one of the wine trails just happens to intersect with an artisanal bakery, a wine bar and a sweet shop full of traditional Cape desserts?<br><br>From your first glimpse of Cape Town to the ultimate thrill of spotting a leopard draped across the limb of a tree, <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">South Africa</a> will exceed your expectations. By all means, go for the Big Five... but plan on returning home with a thousand other great memories.

    We Got The Last Flight Out Of Cape Town

    “The song <i>Should I Stay or Should I Go </i>became the soundtrack of our trip,” Sally Palmer says of the South Africa vacation that she and her husband, Joe, returned from on March 21st. The lyrics and melody of the 1981 hit by The Clash ran through their minds each day of their long-planned holiday with Classic Journeys, as COVID-19-related closings and travel bans ratcheted up with lightning speed from their March 15th arrival onwards. In retrospect, the five days that the couple spent in South Africa marked a major turning point of the global pandemic. <br><br><img alt="South Africa luxury tour" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUBz" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>The line, “<i>if I go there will be trouble, if I stay it will be double…</i>” took on new meaning in particular, as mid-trip, the Brownsville, CA-based couple caught wind of travel advisories telling Americans to either return home quickly or stay out of the country indefinitely. Luckily, thanks to quick thinking by the Palmers’ South African Classic Journeys guide Clive de Bruyne, the two made it back—snagging the last two seats out of Cape Town, within 24 hours of the U.S. State Department’s Global Level 4 Health Advisory - Do Not Travel issuance. “It felt like we were running away from a tidal wave, and eventually it caught up with us,” said de Bruyne of the looming presence of COVID-19 throughout the trip. But despite the many unexpected changes that the coronavirus brought, the Palmers managed to have an incredible—and incredibly memorable—time in South Africa.<br><br><img alt="View over Cape Town South Africa on Luxury Walking Tour" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUBk" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br><b>Coronavirus Concerns Were Low at the Beginning of the Trip.</b><br><br>As the couple departed from California, they were monitoring COVID-19 cases in South Africa (the country recorded its first confirmed case on March 5th). The State Department hadn’t yet issued any travel warnings. Both frequent travelers who’d planned trips with Classic Journeys for each of the past six years, they opted to proceed. Their flight to Cape Town was uneventful, save for having their temperatures checked upon arrival. On arrival, they learned that the two other travelers who’d planned to be part of their small group trip were no longer coming (one cancelled just prior to departure due to COVID-19 concerns, while the other was turned back en route to South Africa for the same reason). The optimistic duo decided to view the change as a positive—after all, their group tour was now <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/private/" target="_blank">private</a>. <br><br><b>The Palmers’ Plans Rapidly Started to Shift. </b><br><br>More COVID-19-related changes came from the get-go, and never let up. On the Palmers’ first day in Cape Town, strong winds shut down the cable car to Table Mountain, so they explored the famous waterfront and the Cape of Good Hope instead.<br><br><img alt="Group sitting over south africa view" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUVB" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>On their next attempt up the mountain, a fire broke out and then the cable cars were suddenly shut down. This time, wind and fire weren’t to blame, COVID-19 was the culprit. Similar things happened with planned excursions to Robben Island and the Langa Township—the first was cancelled completely, and the latter shortened, both due to COVID-19 fears. “We found out later that our trip to Langa Township was one of the last offered; they shut their doors to tourists completely afterward,” said Sally. <br><br>She and Joe took their ever-changing schedule in stride, though. “For us, everything was still new and wonderful,” said Joe. “Our guide’s spirits stayed high and our spirits kept up.” <br><br><img alt="Penguin in south africa" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUTy" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br><b>Multiple Closures Spurred Creativity Changes.</b><br><br>The Palmers’ new travel schedule was mainly invented on the fly by Classic Journeys local guide, de Bruyne, whose skill as a guide was pushed into hyperdrive by the city’s sudden closures and cancellations. “Ordinarily there’s one or two things that don’t go according to plan, and it’s my job to work around that and make the magic happen,” he said. “This time, literally every day we were faced by a new challenge.” <br><br>Rather than riding to the top of Table Mountain in the cable car, the experienced guide led the Palmers along a small trail to a scenic overlook, where they nearly had views of Cape Town fully to themselves.<br><br>“As we sat on a rock a third of the way up the mountain, we were all chatting about how our experience was far superior than standing in a queue with a bunch of other tourists,” said de Bruyne. “That became the theme of the rest of the trip.” <br><br><img alt="Teacher south africa with school children" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUVL" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>Instead of Robben Island, the trio went to the District Six Museum. They pivoted to an abbreviated tour through the Langa Township. They paused for dozens of spur-of-the-moment coffee and beer breaks that offered the chance to check in with locals. And as several other museums and notable places closed spontaneously, they opted to rent bikes and ride along the promenade.<br><br>“We chatted a lot about how the planned itinerary was coming apart but staying together, and all the while we were still having a grand time,” said Sally. “We still experienced Cape Town, it just wasn’t <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-walking-tour/" target="_blank">the typical tour</a>. We felt like in addition to a <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/private/" target="_blank">private tour</a>, we had a very personalized tour.” Adds Joe, “Humor was always involved, and Clive is fun and playful. A level of trust and closeness developed between us very quickly.”<br><br><b>In the Meantime, the Pandemic Rapidly Spurred Worldwide Changes.</b><br><br>The Palmers headed to South Africa’s famous Stellenbosch wine region on March 18th, the same day that a Global Level 3 Health Advisory - Reconsider Travel statement was made by the State Department. Up until that point, de Bruyne felt they’d mainly stayed a step ahead of the virus, but again, that swiftly changed. “The day before we arrived in wine country, everything was open; as we arrived, everything started shutting down,” recalls the guide. “But we still managed to find magic amongst the mayhem.” When a culinary walk was cancelled, he created a gourmet picnic for the Palmers at the region’s renowned Jordan Wine Estate.<br><br><img alt="Picnic on luxury south africa walking tour" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUAc" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>“Clive punted, again, and we had a wine tasting and a picnic out on a pond, with our own fancy baskets and wine glass holders,” said Sally. When another planned tour cancelled, the trio pivoted to mountain biking instead, followed up with another picnic and wine tasting. <br><br><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUAm" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>Family members worried about the spread of COVID-19 continually checked in on the pair, but they reassured them. “We kept saying ‘hey, we’re having this fun experience, we’ve got this all to ourselves, this is dynamite, this is wonderful,’” said Joe.<br><br>The Palmers were scheduled to leave for Phinda Private Game Reserve on March 20th to end their Classic Journeys trip in South Africa with a safari in search of the big five, but the worldwide pandemic caught up with them the day before: A Global Level 4 Health Advisory - Do Not Travel was issued on March 19. Then President Trump imposed a 30-day European travel ban, and Virgin Atlantic notified them that the second leg of their return trip on the 23rd was cancelled. The influx of news reached the Palmers late at night on the 19th, and after an anxious evening of little sleep, de Bruyne “came to the rescue in the morning,” said Sally. With help overnight from Classic Journeys tour operations team in San Diego, he booked them on the last two seats on British Airways on the same day. “We literally got the last two seats out of Cape Town,” she recalls with relief.<br><br><img alt="South Africa luxury tour vineyard walk" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUUX" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br>With an extra morning at their disposal before heading to the airport, de Bruyne suggested filling their last hours with a nature walk. “He said, ‘no tourists go here, and very few local people of South Africa have been here,’ so we did this long 2-to-3 hour walk in wine country,” said Sally. “We got to see the beautiful landscape, the national bird and tons of flowers. It was unique and beautiful, and so much better than just sitting, fussing and waiting.”<br><br><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUAw" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br><b>“Clive Literally Led Us Through The Zombie Apocalypse”</b><br><br>Just five days after their arrival, the Palmers’ return trip was strikingly different from their trip out, marked by empty airports, masked passengers, and even one person in Heathrow clad in a full Hazmat suit. On their final flight from London to San Francisco, in a singularly surreal moment, they realized they were the only paying passengers in first class of the 747. The other seats were filled with pilots tasked with collecting empty planes to fly them back to Heathrow. <br><br>Despite the slew of unexpected twists and turns, the couple count their trip as a success. “Even though it didn’t play out the way we expected, I think we had a wonderful look at South Africa thanks to Clive, and the support and flexibility that Classic Journeys provides its local guides,” said Sally. “This was a one-in-a-million trip. We’ll never forget it.” <br><br>De Bruyne echoes the sentiment. “We joked at the end of the trip that we felt like family. We just clicked. We were in the trenches together, we met all these challenges together,” he said. “It reminded me why I do what I do, and that we’ll see this through.” In South Africa, now the epicenter of the pandemic in Africa, de Bruyne is one of the country’s 59 million people currently on lockdown.<br><br>The Palmers are currently sheltering in place in their own home too, quarantining themselves for 14 days while reflecting on the trip. “Are we sad we didn’t get to see the big animals? Yeah. But we went on a fantastic adventure, and we both came back in one piece—let me tell you, that doesn’t happen every time,” said Joe. “Clive literally led us through the zombie apocalypse.”<br><br><img alt="South Africa luxury tour" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000002FkpD&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000001lUAD" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img><br><br><i>Kelly Phillips Badal is a Los Angeles-based writer, editor and world traveler who writes about travel, lifestyle and design.
