Make this summer one to remember with Virgin Limited Edition

12th October 2016

Make the most of South Africa’s sunshine and rising temperatures this summer with a stay at Ulusaba Private Game Reserve or Mont Rochelle Hotel and Mountain Vineyard, or even both!

There’s no better place to experience the magic of a safari than at Ulusaba Private Game Reserve, and in the summer months the adventure really heats up. The twice daily game drives offer the ultimate opportunity to see abundant wildlife under the supervision of some of South Africa’s most experienced rangers and trackers. After spotting the Big Five, it’s time to take five and relax with a dip in one of Ulusaba’s outdoor pools before the adventure begins again. Ulusaba is the place to be during the school holidays, and the Cub’s Club will keep even the most curious of young explorers entertained, with educational activities from mini safari walks to tales from the bush at bedtime.

Fans of fine food and wine will fall in love with Mont Rochelle, a beautiful 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard located in Franschhoek, just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town. During summer, the plant life bursts into magnificent colour and dry weather provides the perfect chance to explore the vineyards. Groups and families will find all the fun of a summer break combined with luxurious home comforts at Mont Rochelle’s private villa, Manor House. Offering 4 deluxe suites and a bunk room for children, two private pools, a games room and private dining spaces, it’s the ultimate setting for a get-together.

For the best of both worlds, why not combine wildlife with the winelands? Rates start from R65,220 for a 5 night stay in 2016 based on two people sharing an Elephant or Rock Room at Ulusaba and a Merlot Room at Mont Rochelle.
