Abercrombie & Kent launches Relais & Chateaux Southern Africa itinerary

The sixteen-day journey will start in South Africa and pass through Zambia before concluding in Botswana, with guests staying exclusively at properties from the Relais & Chateaux collection.

Experiential luxury pioneer Abercrombie & Kent has partnered with Relais & Chateaux to offer a new sixteen-day journey through Southern Africa. Released as part of Abercrombie & Kent’s new 2018 collection, the itinerary starts in South Africa and continues through Zambia before ending in Botswana, with accommodation at six different Relais & Chateaux lodgings along the way.

The new itinerary will combine both cultural and safari experiences, taking in nature reserves and vineyards in Cape Town and Stellenbosch, Big Five game reserves in the northeast, Victoria Falls and the Zambei River in Zambia and Botswana’s Selinda Reserve.

Accommodation highlights include a stay at vineyard lodge Delaire Graff, which houses an on-site winery and a collection of original art and African artefacts, as well as a safari experience at the exclusive Londolozi Pioneer Camp which consists of just three private suites set along the river bank. Guests will also stay at Ellerman House, Camp Jabulani, Royal Chandu River Lodge and Zarafa Camp.

Rates for the Southern Africa with Relais & Chateaux journey start from A$29,675, based on twin share.

Also new to the 2018 collection is a South African itinerary for rail enthusiasts which features two days on board the Blue Train from Pretoria to Cape Town.

Weather to go


The numerous regions of Africa experience a great range of weather conditions. Temperatures are highest in the desert areas, particularly in the Sahara where annual rainfall is low. Alternately, the tropical rainforests in the centre of the continent experience high rainfall, with a humid, sub-tropical characteristic of the southwest. The savannahs experience distinct wet and dry seasons which means safaris should be planned during the dry season so as to avoid floods, mudslides and downpours.
