4 nts Protea by Marriott Breakwater Lodge, Cape Town

in a standard room with breakfast

The Mother City is probably the most popular starting point for any visit to South Africa and so it should be! Regularly voted as one of the world's most beautiful cities Cape Town has it all – a fascinating mix of up-to-the-minute vibrancy, memorable history and culture along with spectacular natural beauty.

Brimming with diversity and history, the City Bowl is the heart of city and nestles between Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head. It's here that you'll find the Central Business District with its numerous shops and bars along with some residential suburbs, including Bo-Kaap, the picturesque area at Signal Hill known for its colourful houses and cobbled streets. To the west lies the Atlantic Seaboard which stretches from the V&A Waterfront to Llandudno with some of the hottest beaches in between, including trendy Camps Bay. Further south on the Cape Peninsula you'll find the leafy, affluent suburbs of Constantia and Newlands.

If you haven't hired a car, the city centre itself is compact enough to explore on foot or alternatively open-top bus tours are available, allowing you to hop on and off at various stops, allowing you to choose which attractions you want to explore.

The city's most famous attraction, Table Mountain, is also one of the world's most recognisable landmarks and no visit to Cape Town would be complete without a trip up the 360º rotating cable car to the top. Be warned that cloud cover can affect visibility and may even cause the cable car to be closed. During peak times, queues can be long, so be sure to make an early start! The V&A Waterfront is also a great place to spend time. Once a working port, it has been redeveloped into an exciting shopping and leisure hub with a comprehensive array of retail outlets from international brands to exclusive local boutiques, entertainment venues, world-class hotels and restaurants galore. It's also the main departure point for Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela, amongst others, was imprisoned for 18 years. Tours of the jail buildings are conducted by former political prisoners who tell stories of their experiences and lives since their release. Tours do fill up quickly, so we do recommend booking before you leave home to avoid missing out.

Other notable city sights include City Hall, built in 1905 it is one of the last Victorian-style sandstone structures and it was from the balcony of City Hall that Nelson Mandela addressed the world, following his release from prison. For a respite from city life, head for Company Gardens a public park, which contains a rose garden, Japanese garden, fish pond, aviary and tea garden. Alternatively, Kirstenbosch National Botanic Garden is a heavenly national treasure set on the gentle slopes of Table Mountain and home to around 7,000 plant species. The city also has numerous fascinating museums including District Six Museum, Bo-Kaap Museum, Iziko Slave Lodge, The Springbok Experience and Cape Town Diamond Museum.

The Cape Peninsula is a superb day trip from Cape Town with stunning scenic drives over mountains and along the coast. Be sure to stop at Boulders Beach to visit the penguin colony as well as the naval town of Simon's Town, drop by the Constantia wine growing region and climb to the top of the cliff above the Cape of Good Hope at the southern-most tip to admire the Atlantic vistas.

Aside from the wonderful array of shops at the V&A Waterfront, other key shopping areas include Long Street and nearby Church Street in the Central Business District. There are also lots of different markets such as the City Bowl Market and Hout Bay's weekend market, while popular malls included Canal Walk, Cavendish Square and Lifestle on Kloof.

The city certainly comes alive at night offering a cosmopolitan atmosphere and mix of world-rated restaurants, vibrant music venues, impressive clubs, cutting-edge theatres, bars and township shebeens that promise a party that goes on and on! The cuisine on offer is as diverse as the people who make up this great city. There are numerous restaurants to try in the V&A Waterfront as well as Heritage Square, Greenmarket Square and St George's Mall.

However you spend your time in this wonderful city, you'll discover there are few places on earth as enchanting as Cape Town.

3 nts Elandela, Kruger National Park

In a standard lake view suite with full board + 2 daily game drives

The Kruger is arguably one of the finest game parks in the world with plentiful accommodation to suit all pockets, gourmet bush cuisine and exciting, adrenalin-pumping wildlife experiences. Your chances of seeing the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo - are high.

The Kruger Park offers some of the best game viewing in Africa with no fewer than 147 mammals and over 500 species of birds waiting for you. Most Kruger game lodges offer two game drives per day. These are usually offered early in the morning (before breakfast) and late afternoon, although exact times vary according to season. Game drives are always in open top four-wheel drive vehicles, with usually just six guests per vehicle, and are carried out by an experienced knowledgeable ranger. Some lodges also include bush walks or walking safaris.

Most Kruger lodges offer three meals a day and many have African 'bomas' (a traditional outdoor dining experience). Some lodges do not accept children and those that do may insist you pay extra for a private game drive if your children are under 7. Most lodges have no fences, so wildlife can be found inside the lodges' grounds. All lodges insist you are escorted by a member of staff after dark.

5 nts Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

in a deluxe room with breakfast

Over the last half century Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, has evolved from a simple fishing village to a luxurious metropolis dotted with glittering architecture, sumptuous hotels, high-end restaurants and vast shopping malls, which combine wonderfully with untouched desert and expansive sandy beaches.

Discover more about Abu Dhabi's religion and traditions with a visit to one of the world's most impressive landmarks, the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This architectural marvel features 80 domes, over 1,000 columns, gold-plated chandeliers and the world's largest hand woven carpet. Don't miss Al Ain, located 90 minutes drive from the city, it is one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited settlements and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Winding five miles along the Arabian Gulf shore, Abu Dhabi's Corniche is a beautiful boulevard of paved walkways, separate cycle paths, gorgeous manicured gardens, luxury hotels, children's play areas, an array of cafes and restaurants and not forgetting the sweeping sandy beach.

Nearly 200 low-lying islands grace Abu Dhabi's extensive coastline, some of which are accessible to visitors including Yas Island, Sir Bani Yas Island and Saadiyat Island. An emerging entertainment destination, Yas Island is home to the state-of-the-art Yas Marina Circuit where the annual F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is held. It's fast and furious for all ages at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the world's first Ferrari theme park and the largest attraction of its kind, while Yas Waterworld is a futuristic waterpark with 43 rides, slides and attractions. Don't miss also the newly opened Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, the world's first ever Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park, with 29 exhilarating rides, interactive attractions and live entertainment. There's also Yas Links Abu Dhabi, an award-winning golf course and Yas Beach, which is set on the island's tranquil southern shores.

Sir Bini Yas Island is alive with wildlife and adventure activities, a five star boutique hotel and historical sites. More than half the island is made up of the Arabian Wildlife park, one of the region's largest wildlife reserves and home to more than 10,000 free roaming animals including Arabian Oryx, gazelles, giraffes, hyenas and cheetahs. Saadiyat Island is undergoing remarkable transformation into a world-class leisure, residential and cultural hub of global proportions, housing the world's largest single concentration of premier cultural assets, including the Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (under construction). Also on the island is Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, a Gary Player-designed masterpiece and the region's first ocean course.

For those who love to shop, Abu Dhabi won't disappoint. It's so diverse, there's everything from ultra-modern malls with the latest brands to small, souk like outlets where you can buy traditional handicrafts, spices and carpets. Yas Mall is Abu Dhabi's biggest shopping centre with nearly 400 stores and 60 restaurants and cafes as well as a 20 screen cinema. Other options include the Abu Dhabi Mall, Marina Mall and Khalidiyah Mall. Abu Dhabi's bustling souks are worth a visit for their vibrant atmosphere and eclectic variety of goods. Some of our favourite souks include the Fish Souk for a fascinating insight into the way traditional business is done, Al Mina Fruit & Vegetable Souk which bursts with colour, the Al Ain Souk is a great place to explore and practice your bargaining skills, and Souk Al Zafarana which reflects true Emirati culture and tradition.

Sports enthusiasts will find a variety of activities in Abu Dhabi including golf, horse riding, cycling, dune driving in the desert and watersports such as sailing, kayaking, wakeboarding, snorkelling and diving. For those who prefer to watch rather than do, Abu Dhabi also has an action-packed calendar, which includes a Formula 1 Grand Prix and a European Tour golf tournament. There are also a variety of international art, music, heritage and cultural festivals which take place annually.

So to discover this enthralling blend of ancient and modern Arabia let Premier Holidays create the perfect Abu Dhabi holiday for you…
