Enjoy a tour of the best of South Africa, packed full of activities and ‘must-see’ areas from Kruger National Park to the Zulu Kingdom, ending in Cape Town, South Africa’s ‘Mother City’.


See the best of South Africa on this 14 day group tour from Johannesburg. Spot the Big 5, sun yourself on Durban’s beaches and explore the famous Garden Route on your way to the Cape.

The bustling nerve centre of South Africa’s economy, Johannesburg is the entry point of your tour. Consider arriving a day or two early to visit fascinating attractions such as the Military History Museum or the Apartheid Museum. Depart for nearby Pretoria and enjoy an orientation tour of South Africa’s de facto capital.

Onward to Mpumalanga, the gateway to Kruger National Park. Stop at spectacular God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon – the world’s 3rd largest – where fiery red cliffs look out over the surrounding forest. See them from a different angle on an interpretive boat cruise along the River, with a stop at the famous Three Rondavels. On reaching Kruger, get an early start for your best chance at glimpsing the Big Five. Then take another drive in the afternoon, before an elephant interaction experience brings you up close and personal with one of Africa’s most magnificent animals.

Cross into Swaziland and visit the thriving markets of Mbabane before spending the night in Ezulwini Valley, also known as ‘The Valley of Heaven’. Nearby Zululand conjures images of brightly coloured, fearless warriors, and the reality – though more modern – is no less colourful. At charming St Lucia, see hippo, crocodile and over 360 bird species, then go on to Durban to enjoy magnificent beaches. With a full afternoon at leisure, consider a city tour or a trip to U-Shaka Marine World.

Fly to Port Elizabeth for your transfer to Knysna, your first stop along South Africa’s famous Garden Route. Built around a tranquil estuary, the city’s attractions include the spectacular ‘Heads’ that form a gateway to the sea and nature reserves dedicated to the area’s amazing bird life.

Arrive in Cape Town for 3 nights in South Africa’s most beautiful city. You’ll explore the many sights of the Cape Peninsula, such as breathtaking Chapman’s Peak and the penguins of Boulders Beach. The following day is devoted to the Cape Winelands, for a taste of South Africa’s increasingly popular Stellenbosch and Paarl wine regions. Try some of the area’s famous Cabernet Sauvignon, along with many other varieties grown here.

Day 3

Kruger National Park

This morning you will gasp at the glory that is God's Window, a boundless view of forested mountains and fertile plains, and visit the spectacular Bourke's Luck Potholes.

Kruger National Park is one of the oldest and largest reserves in Africa. The park boasts a tremendous variety of game and bird life in its numerous habitats. The park is best known for the Big Five - Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino - and is truly the flagship of Africa and South Africa's game reserves. The sight of the animals is always a thrill, especially at close range on a conducted wilderness trail. After an exciting day in the bush, sunset heralds the crackle of campfire, sundowners and shared anecdotes. The main camps have an excellent range of visitor facilities, including licensed restaurants, shops, swimming pools and conference venues. Game viewing is easier in winter, but many people prefer the lush vegetation of summer. Summer temperatures sometimes exceed 40 C, but winters are generally mild and frost free.

Day 4

'Big Five' in Kruger National Park

An early to start to your safari day, setting off before breakfast in an open safari vehicle in search of the Big 5 which are lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard, and of course not to forget all manner of wondrous wildlife, birds and plant species. A picnic breakfast will be provided while you are on your journey. Your morning is spent in an open 4x4 vehicle with a professional driver/guide. Due to government regulations of the park, vehicles coming into the park for day visits, need to stay on the paved roads and not able to enter into the surrounding bushveld. Return to Hazyview in time for lunch where you will have the balance of your day at leisure.

Day 5

The Kingdom of Swaziland

Today you will enjoy an enchanting drive to the tiny Kingdom of Swaziland, a former British Protection Territory, now ruled by King MsWati III. Here you will witness a Swazi cultural experience before visiting the Swaziland National Museum. You will then continue through the capital city, Mbabane, known for its vibrant markets packed with woven baskets, beadwork and carvings and you will spend the night in the beautiful Ezulwini Valley.

Swaziland, the smallest country in the Southern Africa, is among the most easy-going and laid back regions. Swazis are more likely to celebrate for fun than demonstrate for reform. A progressive and hands on attitude towards wildlife preservation has endowed it with a striking set of national parks. Swaziland has so much to offer, maybe on your next journey back, you can take advantage of trekking, horse riding, rafting on wild rivers or cycle through many of the parks and get surprisingly close to a large variety of wildlife (not included on this journey).

Durban

This morning you will get to enjoy a cruise on Lake St Lucia before departing for the city of Durban. You will hug the lush KwaZulu-Natal coastline en-route to Durban and onwards to our destination, Umhlanga which is north of the city. All the while watching the sugar cane fields do their own version of the Mexican wave at the urging of the wind. You will arrive in time to check into your hotel just before lunch (own account). This afternoon is at your leisure to explore the beachfront and its many attractions.

Appropriately enough, the Zulu name for Durban is "Thekwini" meaning "The Place Where the Earth and the Ocean Meet". But apart from an effervescent ocean, lined with golden beaches, Durban offers a subtropical carnival atmosphere and summer sunshine all year round. At excellent one-stop shopping centres, you can buy anything from photographic equipment to couturier clothes and rare antiques. Flea markets and craft trails attract leisurely browsers, and discount stores offer quality merchandise at bargain basement prices. Within a stone's throw of the city centre, oriental bazaars, fragrant with spice and incense, offer silks, saris, unusual jewellery and ornaments. Pubs, discos and action bars are firm favourites. Theatres and concert halls present classical, avant-garde and ethnic programs. Restaurants represent every facet of the city's cosmopolitan nature and cater for every palate and pocket. At the end of the day, what could be better than strolling on the beach to the rhythm of the waves?

Cape Town

Today will be a day of magnificent vistas. You will get to enjoy the ever-changing passing canvas as you travel towards the beautiful city of Cape Town. During the whale season you will travel via the seaside village of Hermanus in the hopes of catching a glimpse of southern right whales, which frolic offshore (July to November only). Out of season you will return to Cape Town along 'Route 62', South Africa's version of America's 'Route 66'.

Welcome to Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, strategically situated at the southwestern tip of Africa. When the world carried out its trade by boat, Cape Town was an important stopping off point on the spice route to and from Asia. The city lies about 60km north of Cape Point, in a natural bowl with the magnificent Table Mountain to the rear and the vast Atlantic Ocean to the front. It has the reputation as being the most laid back city in the Southern Hemisphere with Capetonians adhering to "Africa time", which is somewhat slower than most other major cities. This relaxed atmosphere is attributed to Table Mountain, which is known to be amongst the most spiritual places on earth. You only have to look up to see the quartzite granite cliffs towering over the city with a protective presence. People are drawn towards the mountain and every visitor feels the need to climb up or take the revolving Cable Car to the top. At 1086 metres above sea level, you will see the most dramatic views of the whole of the Cape Peninsula. The city is safer than most on any continent with a bustling street life of shops, cafes, and market stalls, as well as street artists. This vibrancy is set amongst historic buildings of old Cape Dutch and English architecture with the Castle of Good Hope dating back to 1667, when the first Dutch settlers set up a re-victualling station for trading ships.

Day 12

Cape Peninsula

Today is another early start with lots to do, a full day touring the ruggedly beautiful Cape Peninsula winding your way through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the world. You will stop at the fishing village of Hout Bay, where you can opt to take a cruise (own account) to Seal Island to watch the antics of these natural performers. Then you continue to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, before stopping off to see the lovable penguins at Boulders Beach. In the afternoon you drive through the quaint naval village of Simon's Town on your way back to Cape Town. This evening enjoy dinner at Richard's Supper Club.

The Cape Peninsula is the thin finger of land in the southwestern most corner of Africa with the city of Cape Town at its head. As you travel south towards Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, the land gets narrower until the great Indian and Atlantic Oceans combine into one vast southern ocean, with nothing beyond except Antarctica. In 1578, Sir Francis Drake described it as "The fairest cape in the whole circumference of the globe", and it still is. The rugged Table Mountain range meanders down the centre of the peninsula, and long white soft sandy beaches and little rocky coves, line the edges. The flora and fauna is unique to the area and the brightly coloured birdlife is prolific. Numerous scenic drives are so spectacular they require an unhurried approach to appreciate their stunning beauty. The Peninsula can be divided into the Atlantic coast on the west (including the City of Cape Town) and the False Bay coast on the east. While on the West Coast, the water is rather chilly at an icy 8 -13 C, and it does have an enviable ocean sunset. To take advantage of this nightly spectacle, it is traditional to take a bottle of Cape sparkling wine to the top of Signal Hill or down to the beach. False Bay has the advantage of having warmer water (13 -20 C), safer swimming beaches and a rail link to Cape Town. With nothing but water all around the peninsula, the weather can be a little unpredictable and the wind can whip itself up into a fury. Luckily when it is howling on one side, it is normally quiet on the other so you can always find a sheltered spot.

Day 13

Cape Winelands

Today, journey into the beautiful and tranquil Cape Winelands, visiting both Paarl and Stellenbosch before stopping for a wine tasting at two well-known estates. Visits to the Huguenot Memorial Museum and the Afrikaans Language Monument provide a historical perspective.

The Cape Winelands is a scenically enchanting region of dramatic mountains and fertile valleys, planted with vines stretching across rolling fields. Here, farmers enjoy perfect conditions and produce some of the best wines in the world. The soil is so rich; they use about a tenth of the amount of fertilizer that European farmers do. The region is a wonderful combination of small historic towns, beautiful scenery and wine estates producing delicious wines and brandies. There are literally hundreds of wine estates, all offering the chance to sample their unique blends in a picture perfect setting.
