Welcome to South Africa! On arrival transfer to your hotel.
Start your sightseeing with a cable-car ride up Table Mountain (weather permitting). Here, enjoy stunning views of the city and surrounding area. Next, stop at Boulders Beach and visit a colony of endangered African penguins, known for the unique sound they make. After lunch, continue on to Cape Point Nature Reserve. Stop at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the southwesternmost point of the African continent, for incredible panoramic views. On your return journey, skirt the rocky coastline as you ascend Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the most spectacular drives in the world, then continue through the fishing village of Hout Bay. The evening is at your leisure in Cape Town.
Enjoy a full day at your leisure to explore this beautiful city.
Today, fly to the Kruger National Park area and transfer to your lodge or camp in a private game reserve. The Kruger area is famous for its abundance of wildlife, so you have a great chance to see the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo. Other animals you may see include kudu, impala, giraffe, hippo, cheetah, spotted hyena, wildebeest, bushbaby, and more! This afternoon, embark on your first game drive and stop for sundowner drinks as the sun sets over the bushveld.
Enjoy two full days of game viewing in this wondrous land. Wake up early for a morning game drive in an open-air, 4-wheel-drive Land Rover. Your skilled, professional Ranger will help you learn about this special ecosystem as you view wildlife up close. After breakfast at your lodge, take advantage of free time to swim, read, or enjoy a drink at the bar. Tea will be served prior to your afternoon game drive. As the sun sets, stop for sundowner drinks in the bush. Return to your lodge in time to freshen up before dinner.
Enjoy one last game drive this morning before flying to Johannesburg where your tour ends at the airport.
