Overview
 
Go to sleep amidst the sounds of the wild, the roar of lion or cackle of hyena, and wake to the myriad sounds of the bushveld dawn; this on the first part of this luxury 4 Star tour of South Africa’s greatest icon, the Kruger National Park (KNP).
 
Staying inside this 2 million hectare expanse of wilderness in one of the concession luxury lodges is a unique, sensory experience that you will recall long after your visit is over. You will pursue the Big 5 with your game ranger on morning, and sunset safari games drives, and experience the thrill of spotting Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhinoceros and Cape Buffalo in their natural magnificence, and perhaps capture that perfect image for all time. Of course these are far from being the only animals worth seeing. There are Giraffes, Hyena, Cheetah, African Wild Dog, Hippopotamus, Baboons, Warthog, Zebra, and then of course along with the majestic Kudu, elegant Impala and many species of “buck” or gazelle.
Cape Town is situated between the natural splendor of Table Mountain National Park and the sun drenched ocean. Here, you will feel the excitement of a modern, vibrant African city. Exquisitely beautiful sea and mountain scapes and verdant vineyards are entwined. This is the ‘Mother City’ which has been described by travelers as Europe meets Africa.
Swim and strut with African penguins or sunbathe on the gigantic boulders with these amiable creatures and catch a cable car ride to the table top summit to view one of the most stunning vistas in the world in this, the “fairest cape” on earth. Visit Cape Point where the cold Benguela current converges with the warm Mozambique current and travel with the funicular car up to the lighthouse where you can see the most astounding views of the ocean stretching away in the distance towards the South Pole. Board a ferry to the infamous, but picturesque, Robben Island, the place of Nelson Mandela’s incarceration for decades and also a nature reserve.
