This 15-day South Africa trip takes you from Johannesburg to Cape Town, exploring the best of the country in all its diversity.
Take a night in Johannesburg to shake off any jetlag, meet your fellow travellers, and receive a tour briefing before leaving for the lush Lowveld. You’ll follow the Panorama Route to catch the view over Blyde River Canyon from God’s Window. This is a region filled with interesting geographical features formed by the canyon’s waterways. Your journey through natural South Africa continues the following day in Kruger National Park, arguably the country’s most famous wildlife region. Keep an eye out for the ‘Big 5’ – lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo – along with other animals on your morning game drive, before your guide explores more of the park with you later in the day.
Strike another great Southern African country off your list the following day as you explore Swaziland. This independent kingdom is the smallest country in the Southern Hemisphere, preserving Swazi culture and the region’s wildlife with equal enthusiasm. Then, from Swaziland to Zululand, return to South Africa and learn about the unique cultural balance that has shaped this region. Enjoy an open vehicle safari in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park on your own account if you wish. You may also opt for a cruise from St Lucia, a popular coastal destination among South Africans. The surrounding wetland is home to hippos, crocodiles, and over 360 bird species. Spend the night in the popular seaside city of Durban.
This tour takes in the highlights of South Africa and includes game viewing in the Kruger National Park, the Kingdoms of Swaziland and Zululand, the world heritage sites of St Lucia and the Drakensberg, the Garden Route, as well as the cosmopolitan sophistication of Cape Town. This vast land of unimaginable beauty offers a diversity of experiences.
There is also the opportunity to tailor the experience by adding in optional excursions. These include more game-viewing opportunities in an open vehicle in both Kruger National Park and the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, a 4 x 4 experience up Sani Pass into the tiny mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, or a peninsula tour in Cape Town.
Price includes 14 nights moderate accommodations, sightseeing, 14 breakfasts and 4 dinners, and a free full day Winelands Tour.
