The bustling nerve centre of South Africa’s economy, Johannesburg is the entry point of your tour. Consider arriving a day or two early to visit fascinating attractions such as the Military History Museum or the Apartheid Museum. Depart for nearby Pretoria and enjoy an orientation tour of South Africa’s de facto capital.
Onward to Mpumalanga, the gateway to Kruger National Park. Stop at spectacular God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon – the world’s 3rd largest – where fiery red cliffs look out over the surrounding forest. See them from a different angle on an interpretive boat cruise along the River, with a stop at the famous Three Rondavels. On reaching Kruger, get an early start for your best chance at glimpsing the Big Five. Then take another drive in the afternoon, before an elephant interaction experience brings you up close and personal with one of Africa’s most magnificent animals. Cross into Swaziland and visit the thriving markets of Mbabane before spending the night in Ezulwini Valley, also known as ‘The Valley of Heaven’. Nearby Zululand conjures images of brightly coloured, fearless warriors, and the reality – though more modern – is no less colourful. At charming St Lucia, see hippo, crocodile and over 360 bird species, then go on to Durban to enjoy magnificent beaches. With a full afternoon at leisure, consider a city tour or a trip to U-Shaka Marine World. Fly to Port Elizabeth for your transfer to Knysna, your first stop along South Africa’s famous Garden Route. Built around a tranquil estuary, the city’s attractions include the spectacular ‘Heads’ that form a gateway to the sea and nature reserves dedicated to the area’s amazing bird life.
Arrive in Cape Town for 3 nights in South Africa’s most beautiful city. You’ll explore the many sights of the Cape Peninsula, such as breathtaking Chapman’s Peak and the penguins of Boulders Beach. The following day is devoted to the Cape Winelands, for a taste of South Africa’s increasingly popular Stellenbosch and Paarl wine regions. Try some of the area’s famous Cabernet Sauvignon, along with many other varieties grown here.
