A glorious 14-day southern African experience, where you’ll see and savour the immense richness of the country. From the wilds of Kruger National park to the cosmopolitan sophistication of cape town, you’ll come to understand why South African is dubbed A World in one Country.
From Johannesburg, our journey takes us to the quaint historical mining town of pilgrims Rest, rand on through the breathtaking scenery of Blyde River Canyon and Gods window. We are en route to one of the world’s most famous game parks, Kruger national park, and here, in open safari vehicles, we will be excitedly tracking the spoor of the legendary big five. Our travels then take us to the little kingdom of Swaziland for an authentic cultural experience and traditional craft market, before we embark on a lazy cruise of Lake St Lucia, a world heritage site, and enjoy ample sightings of the resident hippos and crocodiles.
Heading down the coast, we’ll journey through the dense, cool forest of age-old trees in the exquisite Tsitsikamma national park. We then board our ferry for the scenic crossing to the featherbed national reserve, right at the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon. And from the oysters of Kynsna to the ostriches of Oudshoorn, we’re in the feather capital of the world.
One of the world’s most majestic sights is that of whales breaching off the cape coast, and if we are fortunate-July to November only – that’s just what we’ll see. Hermanus offers the best land-based whale watching in the world!
The Cape coast is well worth exploring, and we’ll be winding our way along this exquisite coastline, photo opportunities a-plenty. And for the wine lovers among us, no trip to South Africa is complete without a signature wine-tasting at one of the cape’s famed wine estates. You’ll love the setting and the sipping!
A world in one country. By now you’ll know why.
