Itinerary

1 Night – Johannesburg
3 Nights – Kruger
3 Nights – Hermanus
3 Nights – Winelands
4 Nights – Cape Town


✈ UK – Johannesburg (1 Night): You’ll fly from the UK to Johannesburg, where your 1 night will serve as a stopover before reaching Kruger’s game reserve. You can spend it relaxing in your hotel, but it’s well worth venturing out for the city’s “Big Apple” feel, buzzing or hipster neighbourhoods, graffiti street art and fantastic restaurants.

✈ Johannesburg – Kruger (3 Nights): Depending on which lodge you choose, you’ll reach Kruger by plane or road transfer. The grasslands of this vast game reserve are home to the Big Five (elephants, black and white rhinoceros, leopards and lions), 519 bird species, panoramic horizons, plus all the fresh air in the world. Watch zebra and wildebeest grazing in the wild, get up close to baby elephants and really immerse yourself in the safari atmosphere. Accommodation-wise, there’s everything from luxury lodges to budget-friendly camps.

✈ Kruger – Hermanus (3 Nights): After you time on Safari, we’ll return you back to Jo-berg and then fly you on to Cape Town. We can then transfer you to your hotel in the sleepy seaside town of Hermanus, or alternatively we can arrange a hire car if you’d prefer the extra flexibility.

With Voeklip Beach, Klipgat Cave and prime whale-spotting views along Cliff Path Walk, Hermanus also has terraced wineries, farmers markets, a big cat sanctuary, plus lovely galleries, restaurants and small shops. You’ll have 2 nights here.

🚗  Hermanus – Winelands (3 Nights): With sweeping horizons and viewpoints along the way, we will next take you deep into the Winelands for 3 nights of relaxation in beautiful surroundings. This historic part of South Africa is home to rolling green vineyards, picturesque meadows and beautiful Dutch colonial buildings.

You’re here to sample the region, though. With everything from boutique wineries to ancient or modern estates, the Winelands harvest grapes for fabulous wines and fresh produce (for fabulous cuisine). Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are the most popular, but you can pick whichever you want for a glass of the finest while catching those final sunset rays.

🚗  Winelands – Cape Town (4 Nights): Rounding off with Cape Town’s vibrant pulse and beach-wrapped setting, we’ll now drive you to the pulsating Cape’s main city for your final 4 nights. Urban, modern and historic all at once, Cape Town’s Bowl sits in the shadow of Table Mountain’s stunning views and ocean horizons.

Whether you’re getting acquainted with the penguins on Cape Peninsula, hopping on a ferry to Robben Island or just browsing the V&A Waterfront’s galleries, museums, cafes and restaurants, you’ll be in a city that’s got endless sunshine, outdoor markets, sandy beaches and the local “braii” open grill cuisine. You can stay in the city or right on the beach- it’s up to you.

✈ Cape Town – UK: After your adventure comes to an end, we’ll return you back to Cape Town airport, for your flight back to the UK.
