Tour Length: 10 days
Cape Town | Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, Kruger National Park
Welcome to the ‘fairest Cape in the World’. Colonial monuments co-exist with delightful modernity in the glorious city of Cape Town. Basking in a Mediterranean climate for most of the year, veteran travelers insist Cape Town’s setting tops even the trendiest resort in the south of France; certainly the wines are just as delicious! Relax and enjoy guided sightseeing: a cable car to the top of Table Mountain, a tour of the delightful city and an excursion along the full length of the Cape Peninsula on our Cape & Safari itinerary.
Nothing compares to the thrill of seeing your first lion on the hunt. Be prepared for non-stop action as you search for the Big Five on morning and afternoon game drives. Open safari vehicles, expertly maneuvered by professional game rangers, allow for close-up encounters and superb photographic opportunities. During the quiet midday, a guided walking safari places you ‘nose to nose’ with the smaller denizens of the bush. Land from $5,795 per person
