Iconic Africa creates exclusive luxury African safari and adventure holidays for couples and families in southern and eastern Africa. Our gorgeous destinations are all handpicked and visited by Terri and John and include:
Cape Town has something which will appeal to you, no matter your holiday desires. Honeymooners and romantics will fall further in love with the idyllic views and white sanded beaches. Families can share a morning with curious penguins or throw in some laidback whale watching in Hermanus. For the more adventurous go cage diving with the Great White sharks off Gansbaai or even paraglide off the mountains surrounding Cape Town.
A mere 40 minute drive from Cape Town, the Cape Winelands are without doubt one of the most beautiful regions in the world. Leave the coast line of Cape Town and wander towards the culinary capital of South Africa – Franschhoek. Cross rugged mountains passes and descend into century old vineyards framed by high arching mountains. Drive lightly down age-old cobbled driveways and gently make your way into the Cape Dutch style manor houses.
The name Kalahari is derived from the Tswana word “Kgala”, meaning the great thirst, or “Kgalagadi”, meaning the waterless place. It has been inhabited by the Bushman for 20 000 years as hunter-gatherers, who lived in a harmonious relationship with the environment until the influx of African and European man.
Kenya is without a doubt the absolute ultimate in classic "Out of Africa" safaris. In amongst whistling thorns, white thorns, fever trees and wild olives the great plains of the Masai Mara and many other well-renowned parks are home to many of Africa’s most majestic animals. The red grass savannahs, brightly coloured Maasai villages, interminable vistas and distinct horizons combine to ensure the most quintessential African panorama.
The Kruger National Park is the largest reserve in South Africa and forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which stretches over 35 000 square kilometres and encompasses three countries - South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. This is one of the world’s largest wildlife sanctuaries whose vast expanse ensures the ultimate luxury safari experience as the wildlife is free to roam in a protected area which is slightly larger than the State of South Carolina.
Madikwe is widely recognised as one of the premier luxury safari destinations in Southern Africa. Founded in 1991, this 75 000 hectares reserve is one of South Africa’s largest and finest game reserves. Madikwe Private Game Reserve has become world famous for its Lion and African Wild Dog viewing. What’s more because Madikwe’s terrain is a unique mix of savannah and semi-arid desert the diverse safari experience allows for renowned Big 5 viewing.
Bordering Kenya, Tanzania offers a wide diversity of wildlife, culture immersion and a land of continual contrasts. East Africa’s biggest country by a long way, home to the famous Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Africa’s highest mountain and Africa’s largest lake it really does have it all.
Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet gem of a park in Northern Tanzania. Tarangire meaning ‘river of warthogs’ is most famous for its elephants, birding and plentitude of baobab trees. Its authentic, untouched Africa at its best.
The Victoria Falls is possibly the most awe-inspiring and humbling natural wonder on planet earth. Standing in the rainforest faced with the great thundering boom of the ancient Zambezi waters plunging more than 100 metres into fathomless gorge will leave you silent, grinning, tearful and overjoyed to be soaked by the cleansing waters.
