It’s been a long year, but the festive period is in sight – and with it, comes the opportunity for a much-needed, and well-deserved break.


Perhaps you’ve already started looking for that ideal holiday location, or you’ve only just started thinking about taking some time off to explore and experience something entirely new.


Wherever you are in your 2022 holiday planning, there’s a sun-filled space waiting for you in South Africa – where a warm summer is starting to touch down, and the ancient mountains, wide open savannahs, and the vineyards are beginning to awaken.

Cape Town

When you think of Cape Town, the thoughts that immediately follow are about the iconic Table Mountain – the flat-topped landmark synonymous with the city. Signal Hill sits nearby, providing spectacular views during the day and night, when it becomes a spot for moonlit night hikes. Backed by the unparalleled raw beauty of the South African mountains with a veritable vista of the entire city, watch Cape Town evolve from a bustling hub during the day, to a night-time space of art, culture, fine dining, and some of the best wine you’ll find anywhere in the world.


In one of the last green spaces before you hit the mighty Karoo desert, Graaff-Reinet is an oasis of comfort, beauty, and peace. Experience the wild, natural, open spaces of South Africa – the spaces where dinosaurs walked, and the spaces where humanity first discovered fire. Our three historic lodges stand on the Clifton Estate, which comes with its own 300-year history including stunning colonial architecture with refreshingly contemporary finishings.


Nudging the ocean, a small town exists, where castles dot the landscape. They sit undisturbed, private – and yours to call home for December. Our properties sit secluded on the edge of the Noetsie River, surrounded by stunning natural greenery, where a private, golden beach where it meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Wherever you are in your holiday-planning journey, South Africa is calling – and it’s time to answer. Visit https://buccara.com/destinations/ to book your stay.
