Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in cosmopolitan Cape Town

Arrive at Cape Town International Airport and make your way to More Quarters Apartment Hotel, situated amid the restaurants and cafes of fashionable Kloof Street. We recommend hiring a car or arranging a scheduled transfer - the former will however give you far more freedom to explore Cape Town and its surroundings.

Settle in and get ready to explore: from the towering spectacle of Table Mountain to the pristine white sands of Camps Bay Beach, there is plenty to do and see in Africa's favourite city.

Day 2

Explore the Mother City

Enjoy the next day exploring Cape Town, fondly called The Mother City by locals. Top things to do include heading up Table Mountain, visiting historic Robben Island or taking a trip out to the Cape Winelands.

You can also get adventurous with kite surfing, hiking or abseiling adventures, enjoy a scenic drive along Chapman's Peak to Cape Point and the penguins of Boulders Beach or simply relax on one of Cape Town's beaches.

In the evenings, enjoy superb fine dining at one of the city's top restaurants.

Day 3

Settle into the Sabi Sands

This morning you'll make your way to Cape Town International Airport and fly to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, gateway to the Kruger National Park.

Arrange a scheduled transfer or self drive your way to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, a collection of private conservation areas adjoining the Kruger, and into Lion Sands Private Game Reserve.

Check in at Lion Sands River Lodge, a luxury safari lodge overlooking the Sabie River and at the heart of Big 5 country.

Days 4-5

Search for Africa's Big 5

The Sabi Sands consistently delivers some of the best game viewing on the African continent and you'll be in the thick of things with early morning and late afternoon game drives on the hunt for the Big 5. The fact that Lion Sands is a private reserve means that you will also enjoy guided nature walks and exciting night drives as well.

After your morning drive you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the lodge's main viewing deck and watch game come to drink at the river or you can relax with a pampering spa treatment before setting off again in the afternoon.

Return in the early evening for sundowner drinks and a delicious South African-inspired meal around the fire.

Day 6

Say goodbye to Lion Sands

Today you'll enjoy a final game drive and breakfast before departing for Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. From there you will fly to Johannesburg for your outbound flight.
