Overview

South Africa’s top three destinations are showcased on this itinerary and your accommodation has been chosen to put you at the heart of each. Opening with a waterside hotel at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, the tour also introduces you to a different side of the Cape: its winelands, a rural region of gourmet food and wine set under sunshine and craggy mountains. There is plenty to see and do within walking distance of both your accommodations in the Cape, and the well-paced itinerary allows time for you to explore, whether on your own or on an organised day tour.

Then it is a short domestic flight to a complete change of climate and environment. You arrive close to the Kruger National Park but your final destination is a private reserve lying on the park’s western border: the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, a conservation area whose reputation has been built on its stellar wildlife sightings. A landscape of thorned trees and long grass, this is where you are on the lookout for the famous Big 5 – lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino – as well as a wealth of other animals from hippos and giraffes to baboons and warthogs.

Delivering great value, this tour would be ideal for couples as well as solo travellers looking for affordability and a classic South African experience. Families will like it too: the Cape accommodation is family friendly and offer a great range of sharing experiences while your safari lodge, Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, is one of the best family lodges in the reserve – offering supervised, fun and educational activities for toddlers to teens.

Itinerary

Day to day

A friendly greeting and a private transfer from Cape Town International Airport starts this tour and you could not ask for a more central location at Cape Town’s Waterfront than the Victoria and Alfred Hotel. Lying next to the water with bobbing boats and sleeping Cape fur seals as a backdrop, the hotel is a few minutes away from the Robben Island ferry terminal, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and just about every shop and restaurant you could wish for. With two full days in store, there is time to explore the city as well as head further afield. South of Cape Town lies Simon’s Town and its famous penguin colony as well as Cape Point at the end of the peninsula, lying in a nature reserve of great scenic beauty and wild animals. Ask us about day tours in Cape Town or speak to the hotel concierge when you are there.
