Days 2-4
Cape Town

Explore beautiful Cape Town, one of the world’s most handsomely situated cities. With a dramatic mountain backdrop and gorgeous sandy coastline, combined with a glittering waterfront and an intriguing history, it’s understandably first on everyone’s South Africa visit list. While you’re here, take the ferry to the infamous prison at Robben Island, home to Nelson Mandela for 18 years. Now a museum, it tells the fascinating and poignant tale of prison life on this windswept island. Next, head into the glorious Cape Winelands and discover Franschhoek’s superb vineyards by vintage tram, tasting and sampling as you go.

Kapama Reserve

Set off on your first safari in the Kapama Game Reserve, located within the world renowned Kruger National Park. Named after a Swazi king, Kapama was established as a game reserve in 1993, when depleted species, including the Big Five, were reintroduced. The reserve is now home to a wide variety of game, including elephant, rhino, giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard and cheetah. On top of this, over 350 bird species live among the acacia and marula trees, including the rare gymnogene. Keep your eyes peeled for the smaller insects and plants too.

Days 7-8
Sabi Sands

See a different side of Kruger as you continue your safari in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. With no fences, the game moves freely here and you have every chance of some dramatic wildlife sightings. Head out in the early morning when the game is most active, and see if you can spot the Big Five –lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino). Return to your lodge at lunchtime, relax by the pool or indulge in a massage, then head back out in the afternoon to catch the animals as they come to cool off at the waterholes. And of course no safari would be complete without an evening sundowner, a refreshing drink or two as the sun goes down.

5* Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

Includes 4 game activities

Days 9-10
Depart Sabi Sands and return to the UK
