Tailor Made Tours
You would like a holiday in South Africa, with a Safari either up country or in the Malaria Free Eastern Cape, but you do not really know where to start with Accommodation, or Car Rental, Transfers, or Tours, allow Cape Splendour to figure it all out for you, whether you wish to Self Drive or be driven!
Drop me a mail with your broad idea and after a few discussions on e-mail, I will have a very good idea of exactly what your dream holiday is and will be in an excellent position to compile an itinerary which will include the accommodation which will suite your specific needs, time available and budget. It will also include activities, tours, safaris, golf or whatever you want to spend time doing. I do not charge for this service, I am compensated in terms of the discounts I receive from the hospitality suppliers, depending on the size of these discounts, I share them with you!
By availing of this service you will have the following benefits:
- All the freedom of a self drive holiday without the hassles of sourcing and booking all the accommodation, car rental, safaris, golf etc.
- The convenience of making one payment (or possibly two) for the whole holiday, instead of giving your credit card details to a number of hospitality providers.
- Avoid the uncertainty of not knowing how long it will take to drive between destinations (a major problem encountered by most self-drive holiday makers).
- Have the assurance that you will be staying in quality accommodation no matter what your budget. I have experienced a lot of the accommodation first hand.
- Have a list of suggested activities, picnic spots and restaurants etc. to make your holiday more enjoyable.
- Include experiences like the Blue Train or a trip on Rovos Rail as part of the overall package
- The convenience of borrowing a Cell Phone and being able to make local calls cheaply and staying in contact with Cape Splendour.
- Have your Golf Tee times booked for you as well as your restaurant reservations and activities or day safaris.
- Have the convenience of all your Airport Transfers and Tours being pre-arranged and pre-paid.
- Be given maps of how to get to all your destinations as well as contact numbers for all your hospitality providers.
- Have the option of been given a mobile phone with a local sim card for the duration of your trip, so that you can make local phone calls and keep in touch with Cape Splendour cheaply.
- Be given a host of pamphlets so you can choose the activities which suite you best, whether they are included as suggested activities on the itinerary or not.
- You may wish to be escorted on tours while you are in the City and avoid City traffic, but the freedom of driving out of town at your own pace in your own time, then your itinerary will include a bit of both.
- In a nutshell: freedom and independence, convenience and peace of mind at no extra cost to you (in fact at discounted rates!).
As you will see from the Itinerary One, choices of accommodation are offered as well as various activities, this is largely a ‘driven holiday’.
If you would like to experience the Beat of Africa, let us arrange an evening of African cuisine and Jazz or Marimba music. If theatre is your passion let us discuss what is on with you and make the arrangements for you. Would you like to play tennis go mountain climbing or go fishing? Let us know what you would like to do (anything- you name it) and we will arrange it. We can recommend a host of different meal options, from barbecued fish on the beach, through to a picnic in the Winelands, a barbecue true South African style to a myriad of different restaurants, offering a huge variety of different cuisines.
