Exclusive safari retreat Luxury Cape Town and Kalahari

The Luxury Cape Town and Kalahari safari is peaceful, private and a million miles from ordinary: If fine dining and exclusivity tick your boxes, these seven sublime days will too. We’ve picked one of our favourite far-off safari destinations and a drop-dead-gorgeous city retreat. Our secret recipe for an elegant blend of art, food, Big Five sightings and starry night skies.

You’ll start off in style in Cape Town, tucked away from the world on the edge of the Atlantic, surrounded by fine art and fine wine. Perfect for discerning palates and peace-seeking personalities. From there, it’s off to the remote red sands of the Kalahari in search of rarities like black-maned lions, pangolins and a private table at Klein JAN. 

With Luxury Cape Town and Kalahari life doesn’t get much better, hidden away in a sea of private plunge pools, romantic sleep-outs and exotic bush dinners, nobody will ever find you here, and quite frankly, you won’t want them to.


  • Private tastings of some of some of Cape Town’s finest wines, and a taste of its finest art.
  • Exploring the Kalahari’s remote, wide open spaces on horseback – or on foot.
  • Making friends with the human-friendly meerkats of Tswalu.
  • Experiencing a remote side of the Northern Cape that very few people ever get to see.
  • Tracking the Big Five in on foot or on a game drive.

Cool & Unusual

  • Dining at Klein JAN in the Kalahari, the hottest ticket not in town.

Break it down Itinerary overview

Arriving in Cape Town, you’ll ease into safari mode over three nights, tucked away from the world in the grand surrounds of Ellerman House. Home to a meticulously curated collection of South African art, with works spanning two centuries, and a 9000-bottle fine wine cellar, this exclusive retreat is anything but ordinary - much like the city itself. Whether you’re into the winelands, the west coast or the wildlife on Table Mountain, expect a Cape Town affair tailored to your specific tastes, and some of the finest foodie experiences on the continent.

Leaving the ocean behind, you’ll head up and inwards towards the edge of the Kalahari Desert for a few days in Tswalu’s Motse Camp where a treasure trove of rare wildlife (and cheeky little meerkats) waits to be discovered among thorn trees and red sands. You’ll explore the wide-open spaces on foot, by vehicle, and even on horseback. While you're there, be sure to book dinner and an unforgettable night of local provenance and creativity at Klein JAN – the esteemed sibling of Michelin-starred JAN in Nice.
