The Sabi Sands is South Africa's premier private game viewing destination and is the birthplace of the South African Safari.

Day 5 - After an early breakfast you will be transferred to High Constantia Wine Cellar for lunch and a private tasting with the Winemaker David van Niekerk. Proceed to Cape Town Harbour for embarkation.
