Embark on a 12-day safari that takes in the best of the beach and the bush.
From the glittering skyline of cosmopolitan Cape Town to the starry skies of the African wilds, this is a journey that sparkles with luxury and adventure.
Your trip begins in Cape Town where you will discover the city’s iconic attractions, from Table Mountain and the Southern Peninsula to the Cape Winelands. From the coast, you will head inland to the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Here, you’re invited to truly immerse yourself in the greater Kruger Park wilderness on game drives, and interpretive bush walks. Your classic explorer’s safari ends in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, known for its luxury lodges and unbeatable game viewing.
Complimented by lavish accommodations, gourmet cuisine and tailored private guided experiences, this South African safari is a must-do – a perfect choice for both first-time and returning visitors.
5 nights in Cape Town
Arriving in Cape Town, you will soon discover why the city is consistently voted one of the globe’s top travel destinations. It’s a hotspot of culture, colour, cuisine, and wine. And all of this set at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain.
Encircled by some of the most breathtaking scenery you could imagine, you will explore sun-ripened vineyards, cafes and trendy eateries, powder-white shores and dramatic cliffs. Take in the world-famous views from Table Mountain on a private half-day tour – and from Cape Point, the dramatic promontory where two oceans meet, on a full-day Peninsula tour. Spend a full day “tasting the Cape” among the historic estates of the Winelands.
Begin your days with a wholesome breakfast at Ginja, a lovely establishment found at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel.
