Micato Safaris’ unwavering attention to detail makes couples in love return to Africa again and again. The Wilderness and Winelands Safari provides a sweet discovery from the moment travelers set their eyes on South Africa and explore its lovely preserves and cities, digging deeper to discover its idyllic places to stay. The 12-day journey features two extraordinary hideaways by Sir Richard Branson, who knows a thing or two about luxury and hospitality. At Ulusaba in the Sabi Sand Reserve, you can indulge in a multi-course supper on your private veranda as you watch creatures from nearby wildlife-rich Kruger National Park. Couples will also feel the magic of Mont Rochelle, surrounded by South Africa’s lush farmlands and vineyards. And if wine’s your thing, there’s plenty! As guests wander the sweet Dutch colonial towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands, they can indulge in tastings at wine estates and experience sublime Cape Town and the magnificent One&Only. Every step of the way during Wilderness and Winelands, all meals and drinks are included—even local beer, wine and, often, spirits. The thrill of discovery and romance awaits in Micato’s Africa!
