Why South Africa?
Cape Town is a coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, perfect for a first timer to the country. It’s a beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park and a number of things to do before you step foot in the wild world of Kruger. We keep ample days for Cape Town and Kruger National Park to see the best of both worlds. For an introductory trip to South Africa, Kruger National Park is a great option. It’s one of the world's greatest wildlife-watching destinations with iconic safari species that everybody wants to spot – elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, hippo and zebra. A supporting cast of 137 other mammals and over 500 varieties of bird bless the environs of the national park, so get ready to be amazed at every turn.
What to expect
Cape Town’s charm lies in the fact that it’s one of Africa's premier cultural destinations. For us, we’d love to have you stay in one of our favourite luxury properties. A short historical infusion with museums and art galleries, and then you’re off to the Cape Peninsula to visit the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach and quaint seaside towns. We’ve also added Cape Winelands for a personalized wine tasting at a premier vineyard and a visit to the charming town of Stellenbosch. Roam the high-end artisan boutiques and hand-picked restaurants. Alternatively, we can arrange a private yacht cruise, an excursion to Robben Island, a scenic helicopter flight or a day trip to Hermanus. The next leg of the trip is all about wildlife at the Greater Kruger National Park. Transfer to luxury safari lodge for 3 nights where you can start game-viewing right away. Daily game drives, with option for local community visit or a walking safari, venturing out into the bush on foot and taking in the jungle is all you have to care about.
