Day 1-3: Explore the Mother City

Cape Town, V&A Waterfront, South Africa
Detailed breakdown

Day 1-3: Explore the Mother City | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Cape Town, V&A Waterfront, South Africa

You will arrive at Cape Town International Airport and be transferred to the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, situated only 300 metres away from the V&A Waterfront, which boasts renowned eateries and retail opportunities.
We recommend hiring a car or arranging a scheduled transfer - the former will give you far more freedom to explore Cape Town and its surroundings. Go2Africa is able to make all your transport and activity arrangements before you even set foot out of your home.

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.

Enjoy 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. Options are endless and you are guaranteed to find an outing for every member of the family.
You can also revel in adventure activities including kite surfing, hiking or abseiling. For scenic days in the city, take a drive along Chapman's Peak to Cape Point and encounter the endangered African penguins of Boulders Beach. Alternatively, you can spend your days on the beach, where azure waters lap the shores.

Days 4-6: A Luxury Safari in Kruger | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Kruger National Park, Kruger Private Reserves, Thornybush Game Reserve, South Africa

This morning you make your way to Cape Town International Airport and fly to Hoedspruit Airport, gateway to the Kruger National Park. You will then be met and transferred to the Thornybush Game Reserve.

Thornybush Lodge is an accumulation of delights: a pristine setting, dedicated staff, hospitable service and remarkable sights. Your days will become a treasured compilation of memories: from the shadow of a leopard materialising above you through a mist of trees, to a herd of elephants marching through the dust of an empty riverbed as you pause for sundowners.

Thornybush Game Lodge is spread across thousands of acres of unspoiled African bushveld, and you will spend your mornings and afternoons on guided game drives in open vehicles or on foot, in search of once-in-a-lifetime African wildlife encounters.

Being in a private Kruger reserve means that you can enjoy activities not normally permitted in the Kruger Park itself. Your ranger will go off road for close-up views of extraordinary sightings and once it gets dark, you will be treated to spot-lit night drives in search of rare nocturnal creatures and big cats.

Day 7: Until We Meet Again!
