In this itinerary you combine two of South Africa's most sought after destinations, the Greater Kruger National Park area and the Cape. On this 16 day long journey you will first get an insight into South Africa's past in Johannesburg before heading off to the bush. 

After one week in the North you fly to Cape Town to explore the wine region with its culinary highlights and great wines before doing some whale watching on the shores of the Cape to finally finish your holiday in Cape Town, one of the world's most interesting cities.

Please note that all accommodations are suggestions that can be changed and subject to availability until booked and confirmed.





Days 1 & 2 - Johannesburg

On arrival at OR Tambo you will be met by a representative and transferred to your guesthouse only 5 minutes away from the airport. After the long flight we will leave the day to rest, have something to eat, enjoy the bar and entertainment area or enjoy a cooling swim in the spacious swimming pool.


The following day after breakfast you will be collected by your guide for the day and taken to the most famous township in Africa: Soweto. Together with a local guide you will explore all that Soweto has to offer on a Tuk Tuk Tour, and after a traditional lunch (included) you head towards the impressive Apartheid Museum. At the end of the day you are returned to your guesthouse.

Days 3, 4 & 5 - Timbavati

Your guesthouse will drive you back to the airport, where you collect your rental car (from the airport navigation is a lot easier) and head down into the Lowveld to Kruger National Park. Here you will spend your first three nights in the famous Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Each day you head out on two guided game drives in open 4x4 game viewers in search of not only the Big Five, but everything that makes the Great Circle of Life in the bushveld of Kruger so complex. Guided bush walks can be requested, as well as an overnight in their hide at the dam. All meals are included as well as local drinks.

Days 6, 7 & 8 - Balule

Your next three nights will be spent in another reserve, Balule Private Nature Reserve. This lovely and luxurious owner-run tented camp offers luxury camping (tents have en-suite bathrooms and even aircon!), home-style meals and a great vibe in which to celebrate all that the bush has to offer! Two guided game drives per day included, as well as meals.

The distance between the two camps being reasonably short (about 1,5 h drive) it is very interesting that both landscapes are completely different. So are the animal sightings so make sure to keep your camera ready at all times!
