The highlights included in this package are the thrill of Big 5 game spotting in the midst of unspoiled nature, and the iconic sights and exquisite natural beauty of Cape Town, inclusive of the Peninsula Tour. This holiday package offers so much at an unbelievable price!
Engage with nature in all its African splendor in the Kruger National Park. Time to sharpen your Big 5 spotting skills and listen to the primordial roar of lions across the expansive wilderness. Get up as close to wildebeest, leopard, giraffe, rhino, elephant, zebra, lion as you ever will.
You may also choose to stroll alongside African Penguins on Boulders Beach. We take you also on a breath-taking journey to Cape Point Nature Reserve and the lighthouse at the summit of the last finger of land reaching southwards to the mythical meeting point of the warm Indian Ocean and the mighty, cold Atlantic Ocean, and you feel that you can see forever to the South Pole. The dramatic clifftop drive from Chapman's Peak to Cape Point has been described as one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal roads on earth, and you will experience this for yourself.
But, if you crave to see more of Cape Town, you have the option of prolonging your stay in the "Mother City" just enquire about extending your stay.
Itinerary for This Tour
Leave Johannesburg via a scenic route for the province of Mpumalanga, which means “Rising Sun” in the various Nguni languages ( Zulu, Xhosa, Swazi and others). Arrive at your Four Star Lodge in the warm, subtropical area of the world famous Kruger National Park. Kwa Madwala has arguably the most dramatic location of any game lodge. Manyatta Rock where you will be staying is a "koppie" or hill strewn with what appear to be huge gigantic boulders and the chalets are disguised as the same in between them and the dense bush. Amongst all of this non predatory animals roam. Monkeys and klipspringer antelope are to be found on the doorstep of your chalet and often on your roof! Various exotic birds perch on the tropical bush around your private veranda.
If you have arrived in time you will have lunch on the beautiful open dining deck which overlooks all of this and the rest of this exquisite small private reserve. If you have arrived in time you may go for the optional activity of interacting with the giant resident elephants an experience not to be missed. Later that afternoon, you will depart for a sunset safari with your skilled game ranger in one of the special open game viewing vehicles. Take in the characteristic buzz of the African bush, the wide, open star studded sky and the sights and sounds and smells of African nature! Return to the lodge in the early evening to another of the chef's delights. Once or twice a week for location variety dinner is in the "boma" beneath one of the towering giant rocks, next to the swimming pool with blazing campfire and tables lit by lanterns and torches to add atmosphere to the starlit African night.
Accommodation Kwa Madwala Lodge, Dinner Bed and Breakfast

Depart in the very early morning for another exhilarating game drive but this time a day safari in the Kruger National Park. Some early refreshments will be served before you depart. Experience wild life in the Kruger as the sun rises, truly unforgettable! Enjoy your packed breakfast supplied by the lodge. Driver will stop for you to have lunch at one of the rest camps but this will be your own choice and payment. Later, after returning to the lodge and perhaps spotting the Big 5 (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhinoceros) there is still the enchanting African sky after dark with dinner again on the deck or in the boma, or if you are lucky a magical full moon.
