Now that South Africa has reopened to American travelers, The Royal Portfolio is once more welcoming transatlantic guests.
In order to enter South Africa (and several other destinations), Americans now only need proof of a negative Covid-PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure. "And when it's time to go home again, we are arranging effortless in-room Covid-testing for re-entry into the United States," Biden added. Visitors to South Africa benefit from an extremely favorable exchange rate against the dollar, as well as comfortingly rigorous health protocols at the country's wealth of hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions.
The Royal Portfolio is a collection of award-winning private hotels and lodges in iconic South African destinations. The Royal Portfolio comprises:
- Royal Malewane in the Greater Kruger National Park, with its exquisite Main Lodge, the more intimate Farmstead and the finest interpretive guiding team in Africa;
- Birkenhead House, perched on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Hermanus, an ideal spot for relaxing and for whale watching;
- La Residence in the wine country of Franschhoek, consistently voted "best in Africa" by the readers of America's leading travel magazines;
- The Silo Hotel on Cape Town's V&A Waterfront: the magnificent top floors of a grain silo that was the tallest building in Africa when it opened in 1924; the building was recently converted by London's megastar architect, Thomas Heatherwick, into its dual purpose as the Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) as well as The Silo Hotel.
"We're absolutely thrilled to see Americans again," says The Royal Portfolio's founder and visionary," Liz Biden. "Our team has created a 10-night Royal Itinerary which includes a stay at each of our four properties, offering the perfect circuit for discovering the wildlife, glamour, cuisine, wines and sophistication of today's South Africa," says Biden, "enabling us to look after our guests from the moment they land in South Africa until the moment they leave. South Africa has one of the world's most advanced private health systems," Biden stressed, "and with the roll-out of vaccines, low infection rates, and easy access to testing, life is speedily returning to normal."
