overview

Experience two very different wildlife destinations on this 10-day safari to the private Kapama Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park and the Kalahari's Tswalu Private Game Reserve.

Escape to the peaceful Camp Jabulani in a private reserve bordering the Kruger National Park. Enjoy 5 days exploring this beautiful landscape for the Big 5 while staying in a secluded safari camp. One of the many highlights at Camp Jabulani includes going on an elephant-back safari with the handlers of these majestic creatures.

After your Kruger safari, spend a comfortable night in Johannesburg before journeying to the edge of the Kalahari and the superb Tswalu Private Game Reserve - the largest privately owned reserve in South Africa. Enjoy game drives, guided dune walks and excursions to view San rock art; you can also simply relax at the spa or by the pool. For the perfect end to your adventure, spend an evening stargazing or even arrange for a sleep-out under the clear African night sky.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Escape to the wild Northern Kruger

Board your flight in Johannesburg and travel directly to the stunning Camp Jabulani in the uncrowded Kapama Private Game Reserve in the Kruher National Park. Camp Jabulani is a superior safari lodge in the private reserve and offers a spectacular bird-watching and game-viewing experience.

Days 2-4

Get close to an elephant

With only six suites a stay at Camp Jabulani is an intimate and exclusive affair. Each designed with comfort and elegance in mind. Otherwise, relax on the main deck overlooking the dry river bed where the wildlife roams nearby.

Spend your days exploring this stunning reserve searching for the Big 5 and other wildlife. Visit the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre to learn about the region's successful conservation efforts for cheetah and rhino. For a unique experience head out on an elephant-back night safari, an opportunity that is bound to be a highlight of your African safari experience.

Day 5

Spend a night in Johannesburg

Arrive in Johannesburg today after a short flight from Camp Jabulani and transfer to the centrally located Fairlawns Boutique Hotel for your overnight stay in Johannesburg. Spend the day exploring the upscale neighbourhood of Sandton or venture into Soweto to see some of South Africa's most moving historical sites. Return to the hotel in the evening for a delicious meal in the classic but relaxed restaurant before turning in for the night.

Day 6

Journey to the edge of the Kalahari

Transfer from Fairlawns to the airport for your connecting flight to Tswalu Private Game Reserve on the edge of the Kalahari desert, where you spend four nights at the luxurious Motse Lodge.

Days 7-9

Sleep out under the clear Kalahari sky

A stay at Motse Lodge provides the chance to explore the beautiful and surprisingly diverse landscapes of the Kalahari.

Malaria-free Tswalu is the largest private game reserve in South Africa and is home to lion, king cheetah, giraffe, Cape buffalo and both the white rhino and the highly endangered black rhino. Smaller animals include the bat-eared fox and aardvark while the bird life is incredibly rich and varied.

Enjoy game drives, guided dune walks and excursions to view San rock art, or treat yourself to a spa treatment or a spectacular hot-air balloon ride. Order a iced cocktail and relax by the swimming pool in the heat of the day while after nightfall prepare to be amazed by the galaxy of stars above you as you settle down for an exciting sleep-out under the clear night sky.
