Day 1: Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Kruger National Park

Depart Johannesburg on a short flight to The Kruger National Park where you will be transferred to your lodge for the start of your 3 night stay in this spectacular location. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in an open safari vehicle before returning to the lodge for a sumptuous dinner and an evening of entertaining fireside stories. While at the lodge all meals and activities are included.

Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge or Shumbalala Game Lodge.
Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Kruger National Park

Many of the African predators are nocturnal; so today we will start at first light with a steaming cup of tea or coffee, before setting out in search of the many different varieties of wildlife that call this magical place home. As the day warms, and the animals melt into the shade to rest, we also return to the lodge to eat, relax and ponder the remarkable sights of the morning.

In the Late afternoon, when the heat of the day has abated, we will head out again in search of the animals as they prepare themselves for the night ahead.

Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge or Shumbalala Game Lodge.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3: Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Kruger National Park

By now you will more than likely have seen most of the big game and you will probably not even notice the “impala” anymore because you have become so used to seeing them, this is when you will start to notice some of the other sights that make this place so special. Hundreds of bird species are resident withing the game reserve and simply being woken by their call in the morning gives you a sense of being alive. We will follow the same routine as yesterday but as is always the case in the African bush, you never know what will be around the next corner. You will more than likely have many stories to compare around the camp fire tonight.

Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge or Shumbalala Game Lodge.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4: Cape Town

This morning, we will enjoy one last game drive before being transferred to the airport for the direct flight to Cape Town. You will be met on arrival and transferred to either the Cape Cadogan hotel in Cape Town or the Franschhoek country house, Franschhoek, which is less than an hours drive from the airport. Settle in and have a relaxing afternoon in this very picturesque part of the world.

Accommodation: Cape Cadogan Hotel or Franschhoek country house
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 and 6: Cape Town or Franschhoek

The Cape has so much to offer, for the next two days you are free to enjoy as much or as little as you choose, you can go at a fast pace and do something like shark cage diving or climb table mountain or maybe take a mountain bike tour, you could also take it slow by visiting some of the incredible wineries that are dotted around the country side. South Africa boasts some of the finest wines in the world and you will be pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced they are. If climbing isn’t your thing, take the cable car to the top of Table Mountain for a spectacular view over the entire region. Visit the castle and robben island to see two completely different sides to the same historic coin.

For the Foodie, Franschhoek is a must. World renowned for its eateries, you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting to enjoy a meal. Stellenbosh, with its Cape Dutch architecture and vibrant university culture was one of the first places in the Cape to produce wine and it is still one of the main wine growing regions.

Whatever you choose to do in Cape town, we can pre-book all your activities and arrange all the necessary transfers for you to make your stay in Cape Town as relaxed as possible. Please contact us for a full list of optional activities.
