Miami & Los Angeles
Live the high life with stays in two of the USA’s most iconic cities. In Miami, private cabanas line the white sands of Miami Beach, there’s Art Deco architecture, and hotels have palm-lined pools and ocean views. Dine at celebrity-chef restaurants, hit the luxury stores and stroll around cool art galleries. In LA, expect legendary Hollywood glamour, movie industry magic and dreamy California beaches. Chase the iconic Hollywood sign through the hills, follow the Walk of Fame celebrity handprints and see jugglers, fire dances and sword-swallowers on Venice Beach.
Whether you’d rather be taking in the beaches of Oahu, exploring the ‘Valley Isle’ of Maui and watching whales migrate, discovering Hawaii’s oldest island, Kauai, and its breathtaking coastline or visiting Hawaii’s only active volcano on Hawaii (Big Island), this island state is one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Break up the journey from Hawaii to Johannesburg with a stop in one of the world’s top cities, where the Opera House, Harbour and Bridge make Sydney instantly recognisable from land and water. Over 140 different cultures, world-renowned chefs, cuisine and wine, pulsating nightlife, great shopping and an urban beach lifestyle make this vibrant city like no other place on earth.
Fly into Johannesburg for the start of your tailor-made travels around South Africa. For a classic Big Five safari you could fly on to the wilds of Kruger National Park or to the malaria-free Eastern Cape. Then hire a car to drive the easily navigable roads to Cape Town via world-class wineries, wilderness and whale watching. Cape Town is an unforgettable final stop, where waterfront hotels serve up afternoon tea and unreal city views melt into the ocean from Table Mountain.
