Cape & Kruger Escape: Cape Town & Greater Kruger National Park

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,170

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: 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 9-day 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.
