The Cape Town & Kruger holiday combines the best that South Africa has to offer in just 8 days! The itinerary starts with 5 nights in Cape Town, giving you time to relax and explore this iconic city before heading out into the wilder Kruger area. Cape Town offers an abundance of activities and is guaranteed to have something for everyone. From hiking up Table Mountain or spending the day swimming with the local penguins in Simon’s Town, to enjoying world-class meals from a variety of popular local restaurants, surrounded by the sights and sounds of this bustling city. We recommend extending the itinerary to include a couple of nights in the Winelands – although you can easily take a day trip from Cape Town to visit this area.

There are direct flights between Cape Town & Kruger, so you do not have to spend all day travelling between destinations.  You can literally have breakfast in Cape Town and lunch will be enjoyed in the Kruger, overlooking a waterhole! The final two nights of your Cape Town & Kruger holiday will be spent in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve. The Sabi Sands offers some of South Africa’s best, all year round, game viewing. Not only is the Sabi Sands home to the big five, but also a variety of other game from antelope, zebra, giraffe, hyena, cheetah and many of the smaller and less seen animals like the shy African wild cat and serval.

The Cape Town & Kruger itinerary is suitable for couples and families and we can adjust the itinerary to increase or decrease the number of days.  If you wanted to see more of South Africa, we can easily add on a few nights up the Garden Route after Cape Town or extend the number of nights in the Kruger region and explore the beautiful ‘Panorama Route’.

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
