By Kelsey Marie
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently made a trip to the Motherland and it left us all wanting more. The royals spent time meeting with world leaders, attending events and having it documented by photographers along the way for the world to see.
If you still can’t get over their epic trip, you can now relive it by taking a tour with the basic itinerary of the royal tour.
The tour will be available throughout 2020 with packages starting at $7,395 per traveler plus airfare.
Class Escapes released an official description of the tour, saying: “Charming, elegant and mysterious, South Africa awaits you on an exciting journey, featuring many of the cultural and philanthropic stops the Duke & Duchess made during their recent royal visit in Africa! Feel the warmth of the African sun while exploring Cape Town’s immense cache of unrivaled beauty and exotic botanical gardens, up the Cape Peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope and the endearing penguins of Boulder Beach. Explore Table Mountain and the verdant winelands, richly complemented by Dutch colonial architecture. Feel the rush of seeing Africa’s Big 5 up-close in Kruger National Park while surrounded in comfort. South Africa’s tumultuous struggle to end apartheid is on display when you visit the Nelson Mandela House and Apartheid Museum. The post extension takes you to Zimbabwe and the glorious roar of Victoria Falls. Explore and rejuvenate the soul in South Africa.”
When booking the package, these are the destinations you will be visiting:
Bo-Kaap (Cape Malay Quarter)
This area is an aesthetic playground, with brightly-colored houses. Harry and Meghan visited this area, walked around and visiting a local’s home. You will also experience the same exact thing.
“Enjoy a hands-on, practical lesson on how to cook like a real Cape Maya ‘Auntie!’ Learn how to fold samosas and mix masala for that perfect pot of Cape Malay curry! A local woman will host you at her home, where you will not only learn secret cooking techniques, but also get an insight into daily life in Bo-Kaap, and will indulge in a mouth-watering traditional meal,” according to the Classic Escape itinerary.
The Justice Deck
Justice Deck is located in the township of Nyanga, Cape Town. This non-profit organization works to educate, train and advocate for locals being able to define their human rights.
Harry and Meghan visited the Justice Deck and were captured dancing with locals.
The Woodstock Exchange
This artsy area is referred to as “the creative heart of Cape Town, filled with galleries, studios, street art, and artsy types galore.” Meghan attended the Ladies Who Launch event during their trip where she met with women tech entrepreneurs.
Moving from Cape Town to Johannesburg, you’ll get to spend a day filled with history in the Gauteng province of South Africa.
During your time in Joburg, you’ll visit the Mandela Family Museum, the Apartheid Museum, and Hector Peterson Square.
Diana Fiorentinos, Vice President of Class Escapes, told People,” We leveraged our three decades plus in the travel industry to set up a cultural and philanthropic experience that mimics Harry and Meghan’s getaway.”
