Kirker Holidays is highlighting a selection of Southern Africa itineraries, ranging from indulgent city breaks and safaris to historic battlefields tours, luxury train journeys and relaxing beach experiences.

Guests can choose from tailor-made single and multi-centre itineraries in South Africa including Cape Town, The Winelands, Hermanus & the Overberg Coast, The Garden Route, Eastern Cape Game Reserves, Kruger National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve & Kwazulu Natal; Botswana, including The Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park and Savute Game Reserve; Zambia, including Victoria Falls; and Mauritius.

The company's dedicated Southern Africa brochure offers suggestions for tailor-made short breaks and multi-centre holidays, including several hotels that appear in its programme for the first time this year.

As examples, in Cape Town the four-star deluxe Dock House has been converted into a boutique hotel, offering just five decorated rooms and one suite, as well as an outdoor pool, spa and fitness centre.  

Suitable for discerning travellers seeking their own personal space within footsteps of Cape Town’s most popular sandy beach at Camps Bay, The Place on the Bay Hotel consists of 21 four-star serviced apartments, ranging from studios to a five-star penthouse with private swimming pool and sundeck.

Alternatively, the five-star Glen Avon in Cape Town’s affluent Central Peninsula combines the contemporary comfort of a hotel with the personal service of a welcoming guesthouse.

Joining the five-star The Royal Livingstone as the operator's recommended accommodation at Victoria Falls are The Victoria Falls Hotel and Victoria Falls River Lodge. The four-star Victoria Falls Hotel offers traditional comforts and a private footpath that winds through tropical gardens to an outdoor pool – that leads to the falls. Alternatively, the four-star deluxe Victoria Falls River Lodge, nestled on the banks ofthe Zambezi River, offers game viewing excursions from land, river or on foot.

As an example of prices, a seven-night holiday combining Cape Town with the coastline and whale-watching opportunities of Hermanus costs from £2,445 per person this month. The price is based on two sharing and includes flights, private transfers and seven nights’ breakfast accommodation – four at the four-star Winchester Mansions on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard and three at the four-star Ocean Eleven in Hermanus.
