AU$ 3,068

Experience the best of South Africa on this journey from the Cape to the bush. Start in Cape Town, where you’ll explore the peninsula and the winelands. Then journey to the northeast to stay in a safari lodge in Greater Kruger or Pilanesberg and head on game drives in search of the Big Five.


This 8-day South African vacation takes you to Cape Town and a safari game lodge in the northeast. It features first-class or deluxe accommodations, shared tours, and is a great introduction to Africa.

Begin your journey in Cape Town, which captures the startling diversity of the Rainbow Nation and is among the most beautiful cities on the planet. A private sightseeing tour will showcase the city highlights, from the diverse foods and shopping of Bo-Kaap to the beautiful summit of Table Mountain. The next day, explore the Cape Peninsula, driving along Chapman’s Peak Drive to Simon’s Town. You’ll visit the penguin colony at Boulder Beach and end at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. On your final day on the cape, head to Stellenbosch to explore the Cape Winelands and visit several cellar doors to sample South African wines.

From Cape Town, fly to either Johannesburg or Hoedspruit to connect to your game lodge (flight not included). You’ll have the choice of three game lodges: Shiduli Private Game Lodge or Kambaku Safari Lodge, both 4-star accommodations in the Greater Kruger National Park, or Bakubang Bush Lodge in Pilanesberg National Park. At all three accommodations, you’ll enjoy simple luxury in safari environments set in the midst of the African bush. You’ll spend two full days heading on game drives to search for the Big Five and marvel at hippos, wild dogs, antelopes, and the elusive cheetah. End each day with sundowners and dinners beneath the African sky before retiring to your own suite to fall asleep to the sounds of the bush.

At the end of your stay, connect back to the airport to return home.
