From $4,995 per person
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 this 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.
South Africa’s finest wildlife refuge: Kruger National Park … your safari paradise for 5 exciting days. 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 small denizens of the bush.
Designed for those who are serious about the wildlife, this program visits two different game lodges within Kruger, in two distinct eco-zones. Mix up the menu, meet your new game ranger and say ‘hello’ to a whole new batch of fellow safari enthusiasts.
Tempted to see a bit more? Think about adding Victoria Falls, Botswana or even an exciting extension to Kenya.
