Prices From:
US$ 3,159

Explore the most beautiful regions of South Africa on this adventure. Explore the Western Cape before embarking on an African safari through a private game reserve in Kruger National Park.


This 11-day air-inclusive South African safari takes you from Cape Town to Kruger National Park, discovering the sights and experiences only South Africa can offer.

A warm African welcome brings you into the Mother City, watched over by Table Mountain, with fantastic wildlife regions, gardens, and wineries all on the doorstep. You’ll have three full days to explore, which is just enough for a taste of Cape Town. Consider a tour of the Winelands or the Cape Peninsula. Don’t expect to see the Big 5 (they tend to show up later on this trip), but the Cape is home to its own wildlife including ostriches, the penguins of Boulders Bay, and fearsome great white sharks you can dive with just offshore. For a more cultural taste of Cape Town, explore apartheid history on Robben Island, or embark on a ‘Walk to Freedom’ tour. Just be sure you allow time for a trip to the top of Table Mountain for spectacular views.

Fly to Kruger National Park and transfer to your safari lodge in Timbavati Game Reserve. Morning and dusk game drives offer you many opportunities to spot the local animals, including the Big 5 (elephants, lions, black rhinos, leopards, and African buffalo), plus hornbills, wild dogs, cheetahs, wildebeest, and perhaps even the Timbavati White Lions found only in this park.

Transfer to Johannesburg to meet your departing flight.

We recommend a Peninsula Tour, Winelands Tour, visit to Robben Island and of course no stopover in the Mother City would be complete without taking the trip up Table Mountain by Cable Car.

Day 7

Kambaku Safari Lodge

Todays start just before sunrise, with a 3 hour game drive, which may include a guided bush walk if the opportunity presents itself. Afternoon game drives fade into sundowners, and end with a drive in the dark, where nocturnal animals, for example the bush baby, may be spotted. Beautiful views over unspoilt bush, and the feeling that you are truly in the middle of nowhere, with miles and miles of bush and animals surrounding you, captivate the imagination, and there are frequently surprises around almost every corner. Apart from the Big 5, the Timbavati also boasts a healthy population of wild dog and cheetah, and other safari animals often seen include hyena, ground hornbill (on the endangered list), waterbuck, wildebeest, zebra and giraffe to name but a few. Of course the highlight of any trip is to view the famous Timbavati White Lions in their natural habitat in the only place in the world where they are found naturally occurring in the wild.

Experienced guides and trackers are ever-ready to talk about the wildlife and offer a wealth of information on all aspects of the local fauna and flora. Owner and qualified guide, Bryce, loves taking guests to the next level of bush experience, and really focuses on imparting a huge amount of information based on his extensive knowledge and experience within a wide variety of bush environments around South Africa and in Botswana. Every hour in his company promises to be a never-to-be-forgotten experience.
