The trip kicks off with a city break in Cape Town, staying five minutes from the V&A Waterfront and 10 minutes from Table Mountain. You'll then drive along South Africa's Garden Route, described by The Independent as "a breathtakingly beautiful natural playground".

The itinerary features stops in the heart of the winelands, passing sub-tropical forests, whale-watching spots and stunning beaches along the way. The 3-night stay at the luxurious Kuzuko Lodge in the greater Addo Elephant National Park -- the third largest game park in South Africa -- includes game drives across 15,000 hectares of wilderness. You'll have the chance to spot the Big Five: rhinos, lions, elephants, Cape buffalo and leopards, as well as cheetahs.

Depart on select dates from 23 June-2 July; 12 August-21 September. There's a supplement of £20 per person for Friday and Saturday departures.

Depart from Newcastle for an additional £25 per person. It's an even cheaper £1499 per person to depart from London Gatwick or Heathrow.

It's an extra £100 per person to depart from 1 April-15 July; 11 August-30 September, 2014; and an extra £200 to depart from 16 July-10 August, 2013; 15 January-31 March; 16 July-10 August, 2014.
