Search for the Big 5 on game drives across the Masai Mara's open savannahs and, if you have timed your visit to perfection, you will see the July to November wildebeest Migration. Next, fly to South Africa to spend four days in an exclusive Big 5 reserve next the Kruger National Park, South Africa's premier conservation area. Your tour ends in beautiful Cape Town where you can visit majestic Table Mountain and go on an inclusive tour of the ever-scenic Cape Winelands.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Heading to the Masai Mara

Once you arrive at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you are met by a representative and transferred to nearby Wilson Airport for a flight to the Masai Mara.

From the airstrip, your safari adventure starts right away with a game drive as you make your way to Bateleur Camp in the Masai Mara.

Days 2-3

Game viewing in the Mara

Spend two full days exploring one of Kenya's most rewarding game parks on expertly guided morning and afternoon game drives. Game viewing in the park is amazing at any time of the year and includes opportunities to see the Big 5 but things really heat up from July when thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River from the Serengeti and spread across the Masai Mara to create the Great Migration, one of nature's greatest wildlife spectacles.

Bateleur Camp lies within proximity of the path of the Migration and the herds remain in the area until about early November. Hot-air balloon rides, spectacular bush breakfasts or dinners, interpretive bush walks and night game drives can also be arranged.

Day 4

Fly back to Nairobi

After breakfast you transfer to the local airstrip for your scheduled flight back to Wilson Airport. In Nairobi you will be transferred to The Ole Sereni Hotel near Nairobi National Park. If time permits, take the opportunity to visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Centre.

Day 5

Relaxing in Johannesburg

Transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your scheduled flight to Johannesburg. On arrival, you transfer to The Peermont Peech Hotel for the night.

Day 6

Flying to the Kruger National Park

Make your way to OR Tambo International Airport for your scheduled flight to Ulusaba Airstrip near Kruger National Park. From the airstrip, you are transported to Exeter River Lodge, your accommodation for the next three nights.

Set in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve adjoining the Kruger National Park, this luxury safari camp lies under a canopy of ebony trees and overlooks the Sand River. Settle in and, if there is time, head out on your first afternoon game drive in the reserve.

Days 7-8

Experiencing the Big 5 in the Kruger National Park

Spend the next two days soaking up the legendary Sabi Sands game viewing experience as you head out on early morning and late afternoon game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle with an experienced guide and tracker.

Guided walking safaris and night drives are also offered at Exeter River Lodge, and the focus is firmly on delivering an unforgettable game viewing adventure. You go in search of the Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo - and other classic African animals in this game-rich environment.

The Sabi Sands is well-known for its abundance of leopards, and it would be unusual not to see this elusive cat during the course of your game drives.

Day 9

Discovering the Mother City

After a final game drive and breakfast, return to Ulsusaba Airstrip for your scheduled flight back to Johannesburg. From here, connect with a British Airways flight to the Mother City - Cape Town.

On arrival in Cape Town, you are met by a representative and taken to The Cape Grace Hotel at the V&A Waterfront. The rest of the day will be yours to relax at the lavish hotel or to start exploring Africa's favourite city.

Days 10-11

Exploring Cape Town

Spend the next two full days discovering all that Cape Town has to offer, including a private escorted tour of the Cape Winelands. You will have plenty of time to take the rotating cable car up Table Mountain, head out to Robben Island to see the prison that housed former South African president Nelson Mandela or to take a tour of Cape Point and the endangered Africa penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

The Cape Grace lies at the heart of the ever-popular V&A Waterfront and offers a safe, cosmopolitan and friendly shopping, dining and entertainment environment.

Day 12

Ending your tour in the Mother City

Transfer back to Cape Town Airport for your outgoing flight and the end of your African journey. This tour would combine both easily and well with an Indian Ocean holiday in KwaZulu-Natal or Mozambique.
