Exploring South Africa Tours

Cape Town, Kruger & Victoria Falls

This classical Cape Town, Kruger & Victoria Falls 9-day itinerary brings together the highlights of Southern Africa. The first 4 nights of your holiday will be spent in Cape Town, the ‘Mother City’ and a ‘must see’. You will be staying at the Ocean View House, close to one of Cape Town’s most iconic beaches and flanked by gorgeous mountains. It is easy to spend your time lounging on the beach and exploring the restaurants and bars in the area. This itinerary includes a full day trip to the Cape Winelands, as well as full day tour of the Cape Peninsula, including a visit to the local penguins in Simon’s Town. With so much to offer, your 4 night stay is sure to provide the perfect start to your Cape Town, Kruger & Victoria Falls holiday.

From Cape Town you will be taking a direct flight to Skukuza airport in Kruger, for the next part of your holiday adventure. Here you will have a road transfer through the Kruger park to MalaMala, a classical game resere, offering South Africa’s best big five game viewing. You will be spending 2 nights here which includes daily game drives with your qualified safari guide and ranger.

The last 2 nights will be spent in the Victoria Falls (Zambia), yet another of Africa’s iconic ‘must visit’ destinations.  An easy flight connection takes you directly to Victoria Falls where you will stay at Waterberry Lodge and be treated to a tour of the magnificent Falls. Your stay also includes either a picturesque sunset tour on the Zambezi River, or a village and museum tour, where you will learn about the rich culture and history of the region.

With direct flights connecting all these classical destinations, travel could not be easier! Less days travelling means you could easily add on a few more days in Botswana, transforming your Cape Town, Kruger & Victoria Falls holiday into a real southern Africa adventure!

Your Itinerary

day 1 - 4 - Cape town - Camps bay beaches

Upon arrival at Cape Town International, a quick 30 minute transfer will get you to Camps Bay, Cape Town where you will be spending the next 4 nights.  Your stay at the Ocean View House includes a full day private Winelands tour allowing you to visit some of South Africa’s finest wine estates and we highly recommend lunch at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek!  Another full day tour of the Cape Peninsula takes you to the penguins and Cape Point.

Day 5 & 6 - Kruger - malamala game reserve

After breakfast you will be taken to the airport for the flight to Kruger where a representative will meet and take you through the reserve to MalaMala which promises to offer phenomenal game viewing!  On the day of arrival, after lunch, your ranger will take you on an afternoon game drive, arriving back early evening.  The next day you will enjoy a morning and afternoon game drive, allowing the day time to relax, enjoy a massage and just absorb the tranquil bush surrounds.   Accommodation is at MalaMala Main Camp including all meals and game activities.

day 7 & 8 - Victoria falls

After the morning game drive you will transfer to the airport for the direct flight to Victoria Falls (Livingstone, Zambia) spending your last 2 nights here.  A friendly representative will meet you at the airport and take you to the lodge.  Your stay at Waterberry Lodge includes a tour of Victoria Falls and then you have the choice of either a sunset cruise on the Zambezi or a village and museum tour – both great options!  All meals and local drinks are included in your stay.

day 9 - departure to johannesburg

Today is the last day before returning back to the ‘real world’.  You do still have the morning to enjoy the last bit of the ‘Smoke That Thunders’ which is the found name given by explorers for Victoria Falls.  A direct flight gets you into Johannesburg airport by late afternoon allowing comfortable time to connect with an evening flight back to London.

Hermanus
Only 2½ hours from Cape Town you will find the 'whale capital' of Hermanus that offers some of South Africa's best 'land based' whale watching. The town offers some super Blue Flag swimming beaches and a beautiful mountain setting. More
Garden Route
Stretching from Swellendam to Tsitsikamma, the Garden Route offers visitors a diverse experience ranging from rolling landscapes, semi-desert arid region of Oudtshoorn to the lush forests of the Knysna and Plettenberg Bay areas. Lovely white beaches in the Mossel Bay, Wilderness and Plettenberg Bay completes this destination as an excellent choice for all ages. More

Situated in the eastern part of South Africa, the Eastern Cape is fast becoming South Africa's hottest holiday destination. The region is malaria free, offers a host of top class "Big Five" game destinations, with the added advantage that travelling closer to the coast, you can also enjoy the "Big Six", namely whales, the silent giants of the sea. More
Durban

Mozambique
Becoming one of Africa's hottest destinations with its tropical beaches, warm waters and palm trees. Most connections between lodges within Mozambique are achieved by scheduled and charter flights as well as boat transfers, as road networks are not as developed. A great way to end off any African holiday by spending a few days relaxing on the beach and indulging in tropical spoils.

Madikwe & Waterberg
The ‘big five’ game regions of Madikwe Game Reserve and the Waterberg Game Reserve are increasing in popularity and giving Kruger some healthy competition. These areas are malaria free, located within a 3–4 hour drive from Johannesburg and also offer a great safari experience. More
