Saga Guests can enjoy all-inclusive board basis, adults-only pool area, exclusive Saga Lounge in the adults-only wing. Plus, all Saga’s stay holidays include two excursions, so guests can really get that authentic experience.

Saga’s expert holiday creator Kathy Vigolo says the new holidays are hugely competitive in both price and added interest. She said: “With the inclusions of meals, insurance, flights and VIP chauffeur service on all worldwide holidays, we are expecting a quick take up on our new tours & stays.

The beauty of the Garden Route is well known, but we go beyond to the dramatic Valley of Desolation and historic Graaff-Reinet. In South America our guests not only see the outstanding natural beauty and cultural treasures of Brazil, Argentina and Chile but travel by catamaran across Lago Todos los Santos – one of the most beautiful lakes in Chile.

“In Borneo, we include an exciting light aircraft flight to Sandakan for a full-day’s excursion to visit two wildlife conservation projects.”
