Highlights

 

A spectacular safari in Africa is a bucket list experience for many and that is what is in store with this 12 day Kruger to Cape Town safari.

Experience the magic of Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa, for yourself as you arrive from Johannesburg. An indulgent 3-course dinner at luxury lodge accommodation is the perfect way to begin the safari adventure. Head out on early morning game drives to try your luck at spotting Africa’s legendary Big 5: elephants, lions, buffalo, rhinoceros and leopard. Partake in optional excursions to Swaziland or relax at the lodge and appreciate the beauty of your surrounds.

Go from safari to the urban jungle in Cape Town. Journey to Cape Point and take in the sweeping ocean views afforded by this promontory on the Cape Peninsula. Admire the beauty of Cape Point Nature Reserve and delight in other wildlife encounters by looking out for baboons, rhebok, Cape Mountain zebra and eland. Avid bird-watchers can keep their eyes trained on the trees and sky, too. Finally, visit Afrogem on a guided tour to learn about jewellery manufacturing and craftsmanship.
